As is usual for a teaser trailer it looks amazing but I want some damn gameplay footage. Rumor has it they are allowing us to choose race this time around for character creation but you know how much truth there is in rumors. We'll have to wait and see.

Well shit. I was really hoping to go through and play as a different race (like Turian or Asari). I just hope this game is as great as the first ME was because that was probably the best game in the series thus far (I liked 2 but a lot of the changes they made turned it more into a third person shooter then an RPG and while 3 was amazing (and I still love the original ending) it had its own flaws in both story and mechanics (but had some of the best DLC for the ME series)).

 

Not to sure I'm hip of the Mako being in the game again as that was one of the worst parts of the original ME for me.

God I hated Thresher Maws. Every freaking time you had to hit flat terrain for that one base or that one resource node you just new you'd have one of those damn things pop up (and for me it was usually two of them, I don't know how many times I had to fight two at the same time). Gah, there better not be any damn worms in the Andromeda galaxy. I'll break the disc in half if I have to fight those again.

LOL!! How did you fight them. I use to drive around in a circle around them leading off shots... it was a long tedious, but effective fight. XD As long as the Mako's are legit, and not super clumbsy like the original, I'm fine with it if they incorporate good gameplay that doesn't involve Thresher Maws, or sniping turrets from across the moon to avoid getting annihilated by them when you assault a base.

Same strategy, I used to circle them and pump them full of lead until they died. It really was the only way to kill them since they could one shot you if they were lucky. As long as the Mako isn't a clunker I won't have any real problems with it but as I said I see a Thresher Maw that disc is getting snapped in half.

Seriously, I manually save in EVERY RPG I play (you should see my ME3 save list for my Infiltrator, it's like 65 different saves (my DA: Inquistion one is just as bad, I believe I'm at 40 different saves for it)) because you can't trust games to not bug out anymore. I've lost progress to many times because I wouldn't save ofter so now I do it at every major choice given in a game.

Game looks pretty but honestly I want more substance then a "here's a tech demo for you to see how pretty our game is in 4K" type videos. Give me info on story, companions, weapons, etc. Seriously BioWare the game has been in development long enough for you to start giving us these tidbits.

There is a multiplayer component as well just to let you know Sledge but it's completely optional (just like ME3's was (well was supposed to be but I won't get into that)).

It looks amazing and the gun play looks a lot better then it ever has been but they just couldn't let go of the fucking ammo component could they. Sigh, it'd be nice to have ME1's infinite ammo/cooling system back. Sadly I don't know how hyped I'll really be until I see powers. I know they've done away with classes for the Pathfinder (which blows, I loved the one class aspect of ME) but I really want to know what powers are going to be in this one. Can I make my Pathfinder exactly like my Sentinel (by far the best class imo from ME2 and ME3 (best of both Tech and Biotic powers)? Can I shift more toward an Infiltrator build? I know I'm asking a lot here but a lot is riding on what is available to my character (I really want to play a Sentinel, that Tech Armor plus Biotic Powers was amazing).

From the way they talked about the Multiplayer, it sounds like a Titanfall-like set up that contributes towards something in the SP. But its completely optional and you can get the exact same things through a passive method, which I'm guessing is going to be a lot like sending out NPCs not in your landing party on missions similar to SWTOR.

The powers part looks cool. This will probably be the first time I use them, I always played Solider and facetanked everything XD. I love me some heavy armor.

The crafting looks really cool, and with the size of these planets, and the gathering, and discovery. I'll actually enjoy the grind... maybe they've finally come up with something thats fun, and not planet scanning X_x.

Dammit Sledge, you need to play 1-3 XD

Meh, Soldier in 1 was amazing and you could tell the game was designed completely around playing a Soldier. 2 made the Soldier not so desirable for me as it lost a lot of what made it awesome in 1 in the transition (that being the new ammo system, my Soldier in 1 could fire his AR without it ever overheating). Considering my Soldier never made it into 3 as I still haven't beaten two with him yet (I was going to do that over my 4 day weekend last week but Skyrim put a hold on that) I don't know how good they were.

Sadly powers in the first game were shit and 2 and 3 really made them shine. Sentinel was amazing. With Tech Armor you could pretty much run into any fight like a Soldier and tank the damage. With the addition of Biotic powers it was a powerhouse. Plus if you did Samara's loyalty mission in 2 you got access to Reave, one of the most broken Biotic powers in the game. Not only does it return health to you when it hits it hits like a truck. That with Warp and Throw made the Sentinel a blast to play (gun play wise they were lacking being stuck to SMG's and Pistols but that was a minor inconvenience). Infiltrators were just broken from the get go with their Sniper Rifles and cloaking ability.

Meh, I'm not looking forward to this new scanning component of the game as it looks like it's more of a chore then a natural thing and gathering doesn't look fun at all. I already to enough of that shit in FFXIV (minus the scanning), I don't want to be spending hours gathering components for new armor, weapons, etc. The fact the planets have become open again and the amount of exploring to be done has me extremely interested, I missed that component in 2 and 3 (though 1 wasn't that great for exploration because all the planets were exactly the same just with different resource nodes and places you could visit).

      Cop Craft is the most underrated, under the radar series this past season. Its not some masterpiece for the ages, but damn it was a ride from start to finish. If you liked BRIGHT on Netflix, this is pretty much the anime long form of it. Action, Gore, and a splash of dry humor, packed into 12 eps is worth a watch. It will probably never get a seconds season, and thats ok. If you have 6 hours to blow, it's worth a binge.
      Imma share this again because the OP is so late 90s. I just love it. One of those few I never skipped.

      My computer had a heart attack yesterday morning. The freezing and rebooting that started almost a month ago from a windows update got so bad I couldn't work on the PC for longer than 15 minutes before it'd freeze again and reboot. So I set it to do a "reset" through the recovery option.. which uninstalled all my stuff but kept my personal files. Took almost 5 hours. and in the end, it froze again once yesterday and again this morning. wtf. I did a memory test and its all good. I'm about to do a full clean install but I'll have to move all my files off first. wtf. Even now I have to re-install everything, Guild Wars 2, etc.

      I've been working on my gutters off and on for the last 3 weeks now. I hate these f*cking things. It wouldn't have been making repairs to these if the previous owners didn't redneck the hell out of them. I'm ten feet up in the air two days ago taking a broken piece off, only to find a hidden stripped screw thats impossible to take off, so then I have to break a piece off and my repair work looks like crap because of it.  It'll work, unlike what was there before, but I'm not pleased with it. When I can afford it I'll pay some company to come out and replace all the gutters.

      It's been a long time since I've been duped hard by Netflix. I started watching Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: The Battle of Unato last night. It said Season 1, and the preview looked awesome. I was getting really into the story, the animation was stunning, the action and music were amazing... and then it ended after episode 3. Turns out it was a movie they divided up into 3 eps. WTF. Amazon has the actual series but its subbed. I guess I'll watch it one day.

      Now I understand why the last Lord of the Rings movie had such a long endless ending.. I'm halfway through the last book, the ring is already destroyed, the war is won and everyone is celebrating at the castle.. theres still like 300 pages left. wtf.  and one of the biggest differences from the book and the movie was the last stretch of Frodo and Sam's journey. In the movie, they fought Shelob the spider and after Sam killed a couple Orcs and saved Frodo, they  took some more paths and were at the the lava in Mt Doom.. in the book, Sam had to infiltrate a massive Orc base, most of the Orcs killed each other in an argument, save Frodo.. and then had to actually go to Mt Doom still because that was only the first mountain. wtf. They had an extra week of traveling through enemy controlled land, sneak past multiple Orc bases and encampments, dress up as orcs and had to blend in with an Orc march to get over a bridge, get to Mount Doom, climb it.. lmao. the movie could have been so much longer.

    • I really wish GW2 would add this system. There is a "sexy stretch" in the hand on hip idle. Each idle stance has an animation that goes into it. That way people that bitch and moan about it never had to see it, but people that liked it can have it in that stance. I have more fun that I should messing around with poses in this game while I wait to be match made into a dungeon. /sit has different sitting positions, and you can sit in chairs or on boxes and have different sitting positions there too. I'm sure this is nothing to every other FFXIV player, but to me its so unique and fun. There is even a /pose where you do a little turn around over the shoulder look.
       
    • I miss sexy stretch. lol.
    • I didnt have access to bunny girl when I made her.
