Loaded up the game again this morning (one advantage to being sick, all-day gaming) and the Terraformer achievement popped up straight away
Got Eos and Havaral at 100% viability, playing through Voeld now. Loving Andromeda. My biggest issues with it are tracking the other assignments missions, not all of them tell you where to go next, dislike aimless wandering, I like at least a hint of where to go. And the unskippable animations when flying between planets, but that's being fixed in Thursdays patch
The people shouting this game down are idiots. This game is AWESOME.
I'm having a MUCH MUCH MUCH better time with this than I did with Zelda.
So you're saying this game is worth a purchase?!?!
Seriously though, I have held off as I've read some terrible impressions and awful reviews. You guys are changing my mind!
If you like Mass Effect, you should really get this game.
Or Dragon Age: Inquisition. Seriously, the basic structure of Andromeda has been ripped straight from Inquisition. Each planet is a pseudo-open world environment, as you discover new areas, you set up outposts as you explore, which in turn opens up more areas. You can fast travel to these outposts just like Inquisition. You mine random resources to craft stuff (although thankfully Andromeda doesn't force you to go weeding to make healing spells). Your horse has been replaced by the Nomad and dragons have been replaced by Remnant Architects. Even the strike team missions have been copy and pasted from Inquisition, though Andromeda's version seems to have more depth gameplay-wise, but far less relevance to the story. The combat is one million times better than Inquisition though. Andromeda is what happens when Inquisition and the original Mass Effect have a baby.
I have 100% viability on three planets now, and have just returned the Angaran woman to her people after rescuing her on Voeld. Story seems to be ramping up again after I took a subquest detour
Is CrackHED literally talking to himself now? Who here HASN'T got him on ignore?
Nobody trusts you candy after you tried to peer pressure us all into giving this shit game an easy pass just because you like turds. lol
The SJWs are now attacking their own people who worked on the game:
Looks like I was right:
the more you pander to them the more they complain even more that you didn't pander enough at a satisfactory level.
EA are basically destroying their own properties like they do to everything they touch.
Until pc faggots like you wake the fuck up (and listen to the critics who work in gaming and produce quality stuff and can pick apart the faults) you will always expect EA to get 10 10 10 10 10 100 10 and then get mad at guys like me who called out the bullshit in the industry.
This game would have been a lot better if you hired white guys and then just paid the indians to go away while the white guy works on the game in secret but gives credit to the minority.
This way everyone wins:
-the SJWs get paid and get credit for the white guy doing the work -the white guys save the franchise and earn EA money; letting fans buy future games -the jews get to profit from a series instead of it failing (the jews love money but they also want to promote communism to the young kids who buy the games, movies, tv shows etc as a war against christian and conservative values)
The white guys should probably make a deal where they just get royalties for toy sales or something like George Lucas did for Star Wars.
You have the nerve to attack Zelda but you give this crap game praise when it has little to no characterisation for us to actually feel any attachment to the people in the game? Thank god you don't work in gaming and just post troll content on game boards and nobody listens to you. Even when your fave review sites like Giant Bomb tell you something sucks you still defend it because "it's EA it can't possibly be shit!" LOL you basically destroyed your own credibility.
If you like the game and think it's more than a 7 then that is fine. But to say "people are just shitting on it for no reason" and can't respond to their well-reasoned youtube posts highlighting why the game is crap compared to past games, then why the fuck should people care what you think? Debates are won by showing evidence of the drops in the quality so new people to the franchise can hope the new games are fixed up. It's not about YOU, it's about the fans KNOWING there was a drop and getting angry that the cause of it was due to hiring quotas of non-white staff who were poorly managed and didn't have the experience of the older guys who originally started the series.
It's a form of anti-white discrimination. And if you don't care about the rights of the white guy then that is fine but don't expect those white guys to like the game just because it's an EA game. Freedom loving americans love the idea of a meritocracy where you get respect based on the results and performance. Now that they have shown they don't care about the customers I am loving that the sales are shit because it means the jews will have to take a paycut and admit that they screwed up and actually go back to fixing all the problems of the game.
It's a good game but a bad game for mass effect which is known as 9-10 scoring series.
Ask yourself why is GameHED always right on this shit? Because I see the patterns and its the reason talented people are now going indie because they can't stand poor treatment anymore and like the artists in the comic industry they now want total creative control over things they make. It's beautiful. It means they can make games we ordinarily wouldn't see. The fans just need to cough up the money and if the game is good they wil continue to fund the titles and not have to worry about the big publisher caving into pressure from the SJW and causing a game to have genric quality in the hope it doesn't offend people. And instead the game can focus on being good not on political correct nonsense. The reason you enjoy the freedoms you have is because people had to die for freedoms in the past. As these marxists try to invade male spaces the games will get noticably worse and worse the more popular a series gets because the old staff are kicked out and like a terrorist hijacking a plane, the series wil eventually get run into the ground as the big publisher notices it isn't selling enough copies to justify continuing. So you are celebrating the downfall of the game industry by buying the shit games and not caring about them matching the level of older ones.
Even comedians are being told what they can't say and this is a sad time for making entertaining content because it means you can't criticise the stupidity of the stupid people so that they correct themselves and reflect on what they do. Instead you have the stupid people telling the smart ones what is ok rather than the other way around. You'll understand when the civil war starts. There are prophets having dreams that before america is invaded there will be revealing of secrets of a lot of their leaders to the public so that when He punishes the nation we can understand the justification for it. This is why doomsday preppers are warning of a civil war followed by invading UN troops and possibly russian and chinese taking over. (they would be justified in a sense because america is no longer respectable role model for the other nations to follow anymore after its own people no longer represent the values/principles it claims to protect.
You can prevent the violence by actually fighting the marxists and debating these shits to show young people they have no arguments and this way you recruit the young guys on your side without firing a shot. But noooo all you care about is whether the game is an EA game and if it's an EA title we should all be forced to buy it because you said so and nobody should be allowed to think for themselves as to whether its overall a good game. Yes there are good parts in the game such as improved combat, but overall the game is still lower than what people expect in 2017.
You can't the same about Zelda. And that's why nobody trusts your taste. You were the guy that said Crackdown is a piece of shit. Everyone else loves it because it is fun. I think you need to stop telling us what is good and bad and actually ask yourself why you are even on Gamesranch in the first place if you don't even play games in depth? Are you just here to promote EA games and not compare things to each other and look at it honestly? I have always suspected you just run damage control for big publishers and then pretend to like the smaller companies as a bandwagon to disguise yourself as a cool guy. (but reality is you just follow what others say without liking it yourself through judging the game. You can tell these guys by how they are influenced by hype or hate built up by other peoples reactions rather than their own personal experiences playing a game)
You like this shit I don't. I will buy it maybe when EA takes the ME games seriously and addresses issues. I want shit to makes sense and if something breaks the immersion then it ruins the experience. Example when actions don't have consequences in RPG games and you feel like there is no poin to replay the game with a different character build or choosing different choices in the story. The reason we hardcore gamers know a game is shit is because we remmeber the older days when it wasn't just about graphics but the way the game/world responds to how you the player walk your path and whether this alters the destiny of the character in the long term. That's why it's up to the smaller developers (maybe Ken Levine has the answer?) to take on this task and figure out a way to keep the immersion strong without having to pander to wide audiences so much (in fear of offending the communistic marxist jews who accuse everyone of being nazis because they have white skin, blonde hairs, blues eyes, and make more money than them just because they are funny on youtube - ie pewdiepie lol) If you love the commies so much go move to china candy. I'm happy playing nintendo games over crappy EA crap. If bioware was never bought by EA we might have seen them evolve into something like CD Project Red and win all the GOTY awards. But after you get owned by big publishers like EA the only reason for it is so the big publishers can run the company into the ground and destroy it to eliminate competition. They don't care about the passion behind why people make games. It's just products - if they sell? keep milking the name. If they are good but don't make enough profit? Hire indians and cheap guys to make it and sacrifice quality to appeal to a wide-enough audience whilst never taking any risks or maintaining the original identity of the series that made us like the games to begin with.
It's good that you DO ignore the posts because at the end of the day if you are a fan of EA and you don't listen to the criticisms of the games they publish it results in your fave company losing profits from paying customers. So go ahead and ignore the critics. We are your friends and you see us as enemies. If you don't like to look at the problems that cause the loss in sales, then you deserve to fail. Nobody is against gays lesbians and minorities in games. What we ARE against is FORCED diversity in the games where they put a gun to the head of the artists and creative people and for political reasons tell THEM what they can create instead of letting them do it if they WANT to. It's about respecting their right to do what they think will make the game interesting and meet whatever vision they have in their head for how the series should lok/feel/ and the direction it needs to go in. If you try to dictate your own personal views on others they wil naturally want to reject what you have to say because you ripped their rights to disagre with your opinion away from them and see that as offensive to them.
And this is why EA need to listen to US, not as enemies but as friends who just want the sci-fi universe to succeed and be something you would WANT to live in. Who gives a shit about characters if they are boring, they have no qualities people value, and act like 5 year old kids with dialogue that is cringey? The radical left is doing anything it can to destroy creative people's rights to naturally place these gays, lesbians, transexual alien into stories where people are free to just disagree with the views of the characters if they wish and give players freedom to shape the story. Instead they see games as an educational or brainwashing tool to promote collectivist ideas where you are not allowed to think for yourself but the game TELLS you WHAT to think. I called this shit out 5 years ago. Nobody believes me. They are basically using games as brainwashing tools. It sounded like conspiracy back then but luckily more and more people are catching on. (how else do communist countries like china get to censor games and movies and shit? because they paid off your leaders to place message that are pro-authoritarian in the entertainment in hopes you wouldn't notice enough to boycott paying for the brainwashing tools)
There are ways you can put gays and lesbians and queers without it being shoved down the player's throat, but the people working on these games are not creative enough to pull it off. This causes us to naturally revolt against what the characters have to say because they are dictating that we must accept their opinions without considering whether it's good bad right wrong and just because the politicians and globalists who are out to reduce the world's population say so.
When companies learn to stop preaching down to us and trying to cash in on the feminists and SJWs browd they can succeed. The majority of the population are white hetero men and if you go out of your way to piss them off you deserve to be punished through boycotts and ridiculed for hiring racist indian guy to police thoughts. We don't want to listen to indians. They are not interested in making quality games since they serving an american company so naturally they will just sabotage the project to weaken the greedy white businessman and jew who is exploiting them for political gain so they can say they are doing something for the poor/minority/low IQ lazy guy who doesn't even want to be there because they have no passion to work on the game since it isn't even their own creation, but someone else's.
Until you listen to my wisdom you will experience the same problem time and time again because you just hired the minority to cut costs and save money (you are greedy) not because you care about them. And once these minorities rise up and realise you are exploiting them they will turn against you. Trust me on this. Once people realised they were brainwashed into something they will naturally hate the person manipulating them for selfish gain and side with the good guy who just told them the truth in the beginning even if the truth isn't pleasant to hear. There were already SJW things in the early bioware games but it wasn't pandering to one group of people. And this is might be a reason people are more critical than in the past as they have gotten sick of being told what to think, and because they are smarter than the people telling them what to think and and angry that the dumber guy expects them to lecture a smarter guy. If EA can figure out a way to shut out authoritarians from these groups taking control of projects then you wouldn't get such a tough response rejecting the game. And sadly they won't listen but will probably just kill off ME once the games sales die off instead of using it as a lesson in how to make quality material. My idea of giving white guys payment in some other form and letting the indian get paid to go away can give the best of both world where you give the minority pay but the skilled workers still make the games in secret, and the credit goes to the indian to satisfy the SJWs who are too dumb to know any difference in the quality. (they only play for romance and not about how much sense the story makes - it's why they can't understand why older bioware games are higher in quality to new ones post ME2)

Patching things up after Liam does something stupid normally annoys me, but his loyalty mission is my favourite mission in the game so far. Mixed up gravity, Star Wars references, a lighter tone. Was great
Whoa, looks like Bioware is finally listening to the people complaining about the crazy eyeballs.
But the derpy facial expressions are still in the game.
By the time its finished being patched up it will be good enough for the quality conscious Switch owners who have ignored EA games for a whole game generation. My dick is tired to be excited by ME. Would rather play Persona 5.
Congrats for caring what the fans are saying. Fans should keep the pressure up. It seems to be working. And remmeber what TotalBiscuit said:"Don't pre-order your games". Wait until they are sure they've finished the product then pay them when it is done. Or else they will always skimp on the quality for lack of fear that lessening the quality will cost them money.
This is the only way to get what you want. Big businesses always look for ways to cheap out by hiring cheaper and cheaper workers and cutting corners even if it means lessening the quality of the product. If they can get away with it, they will keep doing it. If people notice, they will care what you have to say. Just saying you are angry doesn't do shit. Actually withholding money shows you MEAN what you are saying. And pre-ordering is telling them not to fear you enough to care if the work is crap. By pre-ordering, you already told them you want the thing before it is even out so why the fuck should they spend time making it good?
Because people withheld the money enough for them to take notice, in future they know not to rush the game out so much and will have checkboxes for these things from now on because they know you will be actively looking for these flaws out of paranoia it might be crap. If the fanbase wasn't huge maybe they could have gotten away with it.
My wallet is tired from buying shit EA games.

The struggle is real... Currently it's all happening on Kadara... Though I have the option of hunting the Archon or looking for the Asari Ark.. haven't even touched on the Salarians yet!
I'm noticing that the promise of more dialogue isn't quite living up to expectations.. That and the impending disappointment that I know the romance I'm gunning for won't be anywhere near as good as the Scott Ryder / Cora romance.
Yeah I've barely scratched the surface of the Arks missions, apart from stumbling across leads as I play through. No idea how much they will add to the game
I do miss the paragon/renegade thing cos the different Sheps were so different. Now you can't really make a bad arse Ryder. I can sorta see why Bioware went this way, cos Bioware Wankers were annoyed (to put it mildly) all their choices didn't matter with the 3 option ending to ME3 (but I'm of the opinion the journey was so amazing it didn't matter you entitled pricks), but on the flip side it feels like them ditching the Mako after ME1 instead of fixing it.
Although they have finally fixed the Mako in Andromeda with the Nomad
The secret to prevent the game from glitching so badly during 'Hunt the Archon' that you literally cannot continue is to not shoot any of the Kett scientists. They appear as red dots on your radar and can be killed BUT DON'T SHOOT AT THEM.
They don't appear to contribute anything story-wise (in this mission anyway, dunno about others) so there doesn't appear to be a reason why you can't shoot Kett that appear as enemies to you, but don't do it.
I reloaded the autosave from the very start of the mission, and was able to finish it by basically only shooting Kett that shot at me first. Still a glitchy mission though, plenty of audio glitches (multiple people talking at once so you miss things, conversations that start when you're on the opposite side of the room etc) and so forth. By far my worst experience with bugs in the game.
Was a good mission though, made so frustrating by bugs (widely reported too) that really shouldn't still be there.
77 hours down and counting I clocked up 139 hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition (that includes all the DLC) so I do like the formula
I've clocked 102 hours so far. Just about to take down the architect on Elaaden and also reset the vault.. I don't really have anything major other than Pee Bee's loyalty missions to do.. I figure I will wrap all of the above up tonight and then do the Hunt for The Archon tomorrow. I must be very lucky.. only a very few minor glitches so far.. nothing rage quit worthy though..
