Mass Effect: Andromeda discussion thread
« on: January 08, 2017, 05:03:23 PM »
Hey folks,

Thought I'd give this game it's own thread to discuss what it's all about, and when it comes up to talk gameplay experiences (like the X-COM thread we have, and to avoid spamming/making OT posts in the main Video Games thread)

Something I'd like to know that some of you may be able to tell me; is there going to be any ship-flying in the game or does the game proper only start at planetfall?

Edit: Looks like no, from this article from November:
Quote
"Part of what made it hard is, we had debates about whether you should be able to manually fly the Tempest all the way around," ME: Andromeda creative director Mac Walters told GameInformer. "Ultimately, we had to say 'Not in this game.' If you try to do too many things, everything starts to suffer. But we had working prototypes of that, and it was compelling, but it wasn't compelling enough."


Cheers
Viperion

Might be one of the few games I might even pre-order.

It's the first game I've ever pre-ordered. I don't know why this has struck such a chord with me, but it just looks like everything I want an action/RPG to be (Fallout just doesn't grab me the right way, with it's real-time freezes to target body parts, among other things)

So, Briefing Video #4 is out introducing the human members of the team.

+ Papa Ryder might be voiced by Clancy Brown, but he looks terrifyingly like John Malkovich in a bad wig
+ Oh look, black man and biotic white woman as your primary human offsiders: shades of ME2. Just please don't let Liam be anywhere near as creepy or creeptastic as Jacob.
+ Speaking of ME2, our 2IC is named Cora Harper, which has turned the Woah! up a few notches in the fan base. If you don't remember, a certain Jim Harper became The Illusive Man.
+ S.A.M. is an AI, not a VI. And that's supposed to be illegal in Council space. The last time that happened, Cerberus ended up creating E.D.I

If we don't end up with even a cameo of our favourite pr humanity group at this point, I will be extremely surprised
