    We'll it's almost a tossup. If they only just cut the boring as fuck open world driving and tried to make the Andromeda feel bigger some other way..

    Also I feel like they played safe with the characters (which turned most of them very dull and forgettable) and the new planets and species (why always go with the ape types in the jungle / desert / snow).

    Thank goodness the story got better after the first 10-15 hours.

    I haven't played in a few weeks, and I'm perfectly ok with that. I'm kinda bored with this game, which is so unfortunate. I loved playing each of the first 3 games multiple times, and this one feels like a chore sadly.

    Basically, lots of developmental infighting and quitting, game was rebuilt about 18 months before release date, the game engine they used was crap, and they released the game knowing it was crap because they figured they could fix it in the next one, which won't happen anytime soon. Imagine that happened with Aliens: Colonial Marines, but worse.

    EA forcing all their studios to use Frostbite has really fucked Bioware with DA:I and ME:A. It's not an rpg engine. Look at CDPR, they've been developing their own engine simply because there aren't really any rpg focused engines out there. It's pretty amazing that ME:A shipped in a fairly coherent and complete state at all, bugs and glitches aside.

    New patch is supposed to be out either today or tomorrow. A few more character creator options and mid-game character customization will be added. Plus a lot of other stuff I'm too lazy to look up.

    This is much better than that Youtube video. The journalist at Kotaku does outstanding work and his article deserves the clicks, not Youtube hacks regurgitating his hard work.

    Thanks for posting. What a tragedy. I don't know why but I'm fascinated by the stories of troubled development of video games. Last summer I read Masters of Doom, and some of the best parts were about the disastrous development of Daikatana by John Romero and Ion Storm.

    Another great expose was one written back in 2009 covering the demise of 3D Realms and the cancellation of Duke Nukem Forever (before Gearbox's parent company bought the rights and Gearbox finished it in 2011). DNF suffered the same problems as Daikatana and Mass Effect Andromeda -- namely, trying to do too much.

    I am, too. With how complicated and messy most development is for games, it's amazing a lot of them release at all. Insane crunch and work hours for those people.

    Just caught the new Bioware IP reveal



    Looks good but I'm left a little rustled tbh. Almost feels like ME:A was just a rehearsal for this shit. I know you can't take too much from an E3 reveal trailer doe

    Pretty much how I felt when seeing the reveal trailer. Just thinking to myself... "Wearing spacesuits and shooting guns at the wildlife on an alien planet.They couldn't have just folded this into ME:A?"

    When I first heard of "Dylan" I was kind of hoping for something far removed from the feel of Mass Effect or Dragon Age.

    the scripted co-op dialogue is cringy as fuck, and I don't believe for a second that this is how the in-game graphics are going to look

    Oh wow. Iron Man goes to the country side. Hope there's more than that to this game. Also, walk animation looks like shit (watch the part where second player joins and they jump, he's sliding like he's on goddamn ice skates)
