    Gotta be honest, had a sad when I found out no single player DLC and they'll round out the campaign with books and comics.

    Fuck you BioWare you goddamn cans. Create this new world and shit and then just go "lol, we ain't going to continue this story"

    The most frustrating part is that this game wasn't even made by Biowares A team or even their B Team, it was Bioware Montreal that handled it and it's their very first single player game.

    I'm pissed that we aren't getting that Quarian DLC

    makes no sense they don't give Edmonton one shot with ME before shutting down the whole series.

    Normally I'm not one of those people that believes in boycotting a company, but this course of action they're taking probably will result in me boycotting them going forward.

    Luckily I have no interest in Anthem because I did not enjoy Destiny.

    Unless they do a KOTOR game (TRUE KOTOR, not that MMO garbage) or another DA I am kinda in the same boat. I have no real interest in Anthem.

    So is this game worth it for $35? I see a lot of complaining. I finished ME 1 & 2 but didn't care for 3 enough to finish it. Only Bioware games I ever played otherwise were Jade Empire and KOTOR 1.

    KOTOR is up there with GOAT games. When they transitioned to Jade Empire it really bombed.

    I never gave Jade Empire a chance but I've heard some people really like it.

    At this stage I'd even take a KOTOR HD remake. Was such a great portion of Star Wars universe and history they went through and fucking Obsidian left it unfinished with that bullshit KOTOR II ending.

    Oh hell yeah! A few updates and tweaks to KOTOR and I'd play again for sure. It'd be awesome if they made team multiplayer too.

    Compared to KOTOR, Jade Empire was pretty but so short and your options didn't seem to matter that much. The martial arts were cool, but KOTOR was so much better.

    Bioware must hate making money. Instead of getting a true sequel to KOTOR and continuing that story which is what the fanbase wants they insist on continuing it with the MMO instead. Honestly, that story is good enough to deserve its own film.

    I also blame EA, they don't give a fuck about what happens to this series

    Jade Empire was fun as hell. Best game I played on the original Xbox IMO.

    The more time passes after I finished Andromeda, the more shallow this game feels. I have fond memories of first 3 games and feel I will replay them sometime soon, while I have no such memories of Andromeda. Most characters and choices were pretty bland as I think now. The best trait of the game is that it does feel like mass effect, but that's pretty much it:(

    I found it for 20 on amazon, I feel its worth that price tag. I have enjoyed every Bioware game even the less the epic i have enjoyed, so that that into consideration.

    Same.
    With the exception of a future Dragon Age game, Im done with Bioware for the time being.
    They had a loyal ME fan base that would have likely bought ANYTHING ME related, had it been supplied. To give up on such a big game is just mind boggling.

    And seriously what the actual fuck is the point of pre-ordering games for 60 bucks, and then 3 months later they're being sold for 40 during some flashsale?
    I was so disappointed with this game. It is not a bad game in and of itself, but it is not what I want out of a ME game. No one buys ME for multi-player shooter battles. The dialogue was corny. The characters were bland. And the goddamn story....

    How lazy are these hacks? The story is essentially the same damn story of the original series. A mysterious, ancient alien force is present...you're trying to solve the mystery (like the Protheans), and turns out that this enemy that you're fighting actually is the Angarans! Just genetically modified...same as in ME 2/3) Now the humans have to lead the charge to save the galaxy!
    And how is there essentially only 1 new alien species in this new galaxy? ?? This game lacked imagination. They gave you a whole lot of empty ass planets to explore.[\spoiler]

    I didn't even finish the game. I stopped right at the last mission a while back. I thought id come back to it after some DLC came out. But..yea...that's not happening.

    What's the best class to play if I'm just going to play matches with random dudes in MP? Infiltrator?

    Anyone craft a weapon and have it not show up in your inventory? I developed a level V Valkarie assault rifle and it doesn't show up in my inventory now.. It even removed the augmentations from my inventory.
