Mass Effect: Andromeda Revealed - Update

 Pages 1 2 3 NEXT
 

Well... I was right about the name.
I was hoping to be wrong... It's a bit unimagitive name.

BUT... It's more Mass Effect. I almost punched my desk in exciment (It's kinda weird I know), but I am at work and this desk doesn't belong to me.

Now, I got to pick which of my Shepards I import my save (Despite the fact it will probably only give nice a few nice bonus dialogue and emails for the protagonist depending in which color ending you did) off... It's more dificult than picking my first pokemon in the first gen... I like all my Shepards.

EDIT: Didn't liked the trailer... Mostly didn't liked the choice of music, I mean, I liked the SONG. It just didn't feel very much Mass Effect-y. And was all CG, like I was expecting... Once again I expected to be wrong and be shown a bit more than that...

They already said Shepard's story is done.

Yeah, but they also said to hold on to my saves. I think what will happen it's maybe will unlock a few extras bits and pieces here and there (Weapons skins, armor parts and such...). Maybe throw a few lines of dialogue that somewhat reflect Shepards choices in ME without intefering with the plot of Andromeda, and those mails you get (If they are back) may give some information as well. I don't expect Shepard show up and take up the place of the new protagonist whoever he\she may be. Just a few nods depending on your choices... Like DA and the Warden.

Nice to see that after you spent 3 games fighting an ancient evil you go to another galaxy to fight a new ancient evil. And what look like bulky turians.

It always bothers me when people with guns run at eachother like drunk sailors in a bar. Not that it doesn't atleast make some sense in ME, but everyone rushing everyone else and just kinda shooting blindly is a really stupid visual.

Is this supposed to be funny? I mean, I wouldn't mind playing a mercenary crew in the ME universe. Steal cargo, map out new areas, get drunk. A less serious take on the franchise could be fun. The N7 mark suggests otherwise, though. The music was a weird fit, a poor choice if they were going for a serious/epic feel. Good if they're going for more of a Guardians of the Galaxy/Firefly angle.

You'd think that Bioware would have figured out how to make helmets that don't look awful after three games, but nope.

The music and the trailer in general made me feel it could be a "exploring new frontiers" kinda game, which could be nice. Gameworld akin to ME1 with focused combat of 2/3 sounds good to me. Also vertical movement? Please let that be a thing in the game. I always find it grating when my exploration is halted by a two feet tall fence.
Aaaand that's about it. I could do without being another N7, but I guess they need some explanation why the PC is kicking everyone's asses.

...I like the N7 helmet design in 2 and 3, so, yeah, subjectivity FTW! I like this one, too, from what I've seen.

I think it's a great little teaser, and whilst I doubt they'll go hard on the Western-in-space, classic Star Wars/Firefly/Guardians vibe, I'd really like it if they did - partially because it'd also distinguish it from the first trilogy.

It's funny to see jump boosts/packs being the in-thing in gaming, though. 40K Assault Marines? We salute you...

oh, i know, i was talking about how in the article, the author said "Will Commander Shepard return in Andromeda or are you expecting an entirely new character (perhaps played by Kevin Sorbo)?"

it was ill-informed.

There's a Bioware Blog post here on the subject.

"...Taking place far away from, and long after, the events of the original trilogy." So they're distancing themselves from ME3's ending (not surprising) which also gives them some wriggle-room on how to work around the final choice. It heavily supports the idea that Shepard is out of the picture, too.

Also, apparently the N7 person seen in the trailer isn't the game's protagonist? Odd.

I actually like the sound of all this. Putting some distance away from ME3's ending, but not writing it out of the canon entirely, feels like the best way to handle it. I look forward to hearing more.

I thought the ME3 ending effected every single galaxy\universe? Didn't the Reapers travel basically everywhere to wipe out\harvest all advanced life forms? If so, why would Andromeda be unaffected?

Ughh.. so many questions.

The Reapers seem to have only been focused on the Milky Way, for whatever reason. Possibly controlling the entire universe was just beyond them. In any case, as far as we know then the Mass Relay network was restricted to our galaxy, so the final choice wouldn't have reached Andromeda.

Probably a retcon or "The Reapers were created here, so they don't go back" type of bull. I'm not expecting much considering their last three games have had underwhelming stories for me.

Who knows, maybe we're playing as Vega now, it sorta looked bulky enough to hold him and his story arc was essentially about becoming the next generation's Shepard.

Sorta boring though that it looks like they're just going to go "lol, don't worry about the Local system with the millions of new inhabitants becasue the Relays are borked" when they could've had a much smaller series set in that area of the galaxy about the others making Jupiter or Neptune habitable and having backlash from the radical elements of Terra Firma. probably too much to ask though considering this is Bioware.

Ugh if it's Vega I don't know if I could stomach playing. I just didn't like that guy and his stupid nickname for my Shepard and... well most everything about the next dull soldier I ignored for my alien buddies.

I have high hopes it is not him since that would lock gender and class.

Not that I can look at the trailer from work on my phone to know if I should be disappointed anyways yet...

You're really not missing much, apparently the Illusive Man's room is a tiny Relay or something and there's alot of shooting and N7'ery.

Also, how can you not like Vega? He's voiced by Freddie Prinze jr.! C'mon, how can you hate that guy? Beyond him being added at the last second, that is. At least he had a discernable arc, most of your other buddies had their arcs in the last two games and were half-thought out and then dropped by the time you get to Tuchanka...

I dunno what it is about that, but the idea of the Illusive Man's room being a tiny relay makes me want to laugh very very hard. Citadel relay in the first game is one thing and neat the first time but the Illusive Man hiding one in his room... XD

Poor Liara especially did seem to suffer for a lack of things to have going on until being upset at Thessia and after two games of being the rogue cop wanting to be a vigilante Garrus had that pretty settled. Tali seemed to have the most actually going on. I think Mordin got a good arc despite not being playable. I suppose Vega did get a discernable arc at least, I just didn't care because I didn't like the guy... I rank him 4th least liked on top of Jacob (crime:blandest outside of outright annoying), Ashley (ME 3 confirmed my dislike for her), and Kaidan (Carth Onasi)

I feel like vomiting to be honest. Who the fuck abandons the entire established universe to set the next game in a completely different freakin' galaxy? Oh, right. The guys that fucked up so badly they didn't know how to get out of the mess they've made.

With the recent space-sim revolution, somebody oughta make a good Freelancer-TPS ActionRPG hybrid.

It's really sad that they went from Mass Effect's 1 "We are to powerful and advanced for you to comprehend" to.. this? Seriously, they could get into dark space (Or whatever it was called, the edge of the universe basically) easy enough yet now they cant/didn't go to Andromeda?

:'l

It makes even less sense now, since the trailer clearly shows human/other races in Andromeda, that should have been reason enough for the Reapers to go and do their thing. Yet saying that "We were made(?) in the milkyway, so we dont bother with anything else" when they WERE supposed to be all-powerful and whatnot is just... bad writing and sad :l

I wish that reveal of the name still filled me with glee. I wish the familiar calming music that played at the end stirred emotions of galactic adventure. I wish the sight of N7 armor made me sequel.

But it doesn't. It just...yes, okay. I'll admit it. I'm still burned by Mass Effect 3's ending. I know it's been years, and I know a lot of people think I should be over it, and I am. But that ending just sucked so much of my love and excitement for the franchise right out of me. The name, music, and sights now no longer stir feelings of joy, but feelings of disappointment.
Maybe they'll prove me wrong. Maybe this game will blow me away all over again. Maybe Liara will show up with my kid. Maybe. But it's so hard for me to be excited about it like I should be.

Also, that version of 'Ghost Riders in the Sky' is way too slow.

To be fair, fans of the first game have been moaning about exploration and vehicles for years now. From biowares perspective, they're going back to their hard sci-fi, Star Trek roots. Going back to what the first game was. Now fans will complain about it not being like 2. Furthermore, they probably want to take the series as far away from ME3 as humanly possible. We got what we asked for, I guess.

Unless it gets ungodly reviews, I won't be playing it, though. Are any of the original creative minds even in that company anymore?

Never cared for Liara, especially in ME1, don't understand how anyone romanced her, especially since she's effectively barely 18 in human years, if that, and Shepard's very late 20's/early 30's. And Ash, I liked her, she had reasons for not trusting aliens and wasn't just "racist religious person #864813". ME3 really screwed that up to sorta make her the stand-in for that in some places, really pissed me off along with alot of other things Hudson screwed up.

They really screwed up the last Earth defense thing though, instead of adding in cutscenes of the races you recruited, you just get a bunch of humans everywhere.

Both of these things can pretty much be laid at the feet of Hudson and Walters. Karpyshian and like half the writing team got sick of the bull apparently and left, and they took over the writing to turn it into a kid's after-school special.

So much potential, and they squander it for simplistic things that have no meaning and exactly what they said it wouldn't be like.

Yeah her age seemed a bit awkward. Bit less by her being over 100. I figured Asari society could have higher standards on maturity due to their lifespan, but still.

I could get along with Ash okay in 1. In 2 her distrust was getting irritating, exacerbated by Shepard not being smart enough to explain the matter, and in 3 I was so tempted to shoot her when the chance came. Else I'd rank her above Jacob for having a personality

Yeah... I recently replayed the entire series and the lack of any other species was jarring. You even see Wrex rallying the Krogan before the last surge but nope its humans making the charge.

And that's not even talking about the Crucible and the last choices... I hope, if I get the game which I eventually probably will, that I can keep my destruction ending. I enjoyed spiting that damn AI and seeing Shepard live. I like to think of that as a reward for not doing the other options.

:'l

Darkspace isn't the edge of the universe; it's just the space between galaxies. After a cycle, the Reapers went outside of our galaxy and went dormant until the next cycle began. If you play the Arrival DLC from ME2, it literally shows them sitting just outside of our galaxy(you can tell because the galaxy looks big) and then beginning to approach at the end. There is no indication or even hint that they have ever acted in galaxies other than the Milky Way.

It's one thing to point out plot holes. It's another entirely to fabricate them.

I am... disappointed to be honest. Frankly I was hoping for more information. This literally tells us nothing except that, presumably, the game takes place in the Andromeda galaxy as opposed to the Milky Way. Well, I had wondered how they would make a new ME game without decanonizing any of ME3's endings (since at least one of the possible endings leaves the Reapers still alive and how do you have space adventures when they can just annihilate anyone evil effortlessly?), and I guess the answer to that is just go to a different galaxy that doesn't have Reapers in it. Still though, beyond that there's nothing in this trailer to go off of.

It's been years since I actually played ME2, let alone the arrival DLC so I only just vaguely remembered them sitting "out-there" in a dark spot of the universe.

It's still massively underwhelming if you think about the fact that "Oh lets screw over ONLY the Milkyway every 5000years because why not?" if there's other galaxies with equal if not superior civilization and tech.

Not really. If you look at what the Reapers have done(and play the Leviathan DLC), it becomes obvious that for all their claims of being beyond mortal comprehension, they've never acted outside the purpose of their creation - to periodically cull intelligent species within the galaxy of their creator. Since their creator resides within the Milky Way, and nothing(that we are aware of) has ever effected the galaxy from beyond its borders within the time frame of the Reapers' existence(which is a fair stretch of time), there would be no impetus for the Reapers to act outside their given purpose. They are not explorers; they are tools.

I think the problem here is that so much of this is locked in DLC. for ME3's start to make sense, you have to play Arrival. For the ending to make even less sense than it already does, you have to play the Relay Explodey one. For Liara to have a character, you have to buy Shadow Broker.

That's a fair criticism, but I guess if they have to do DLC, I'd rather it be stuff like that than more pointless weapon and alternate costume packs.

Not gonna lie, actually thought the protagonist was a Drell until they turned around. The side of the helmet did them no favours.

OT: Well, the trailer was 100% cinematic so can't put too much faith in it, but it did have a Johnny Cash song. And games with Johnny Cash songs in them are always good. Don't ask how, just accept this fact.

On the other hand, Johnny Cash songs can also sink a game, cus I don't see a Prey 2 anywhere, awesome as its trailer was.

Man, I really hope Kevin Sorbo voices the protagonist.

This is true. But had we been able to see/play Prey 2, it would have been amazing. The power of the Cash is not one to call upon lightly, but if you survive it you may stand amongst your peers like a god amongst men.

I'd prefer to not have DLC that screws with the story in some way myself. Extra stuff is fine, but Arrival and the Relay one and Shadow Broker? They feel like they were cut from the game or they were ignored later because their new writers didn't pay attention to any of them.

I hope you get to play a species other than human.
