    @ares42: Much as I like the game so far, that part really bugged me too. I could kinda get it not being that big a deal for the Tempest crew. They all know tons of different sentient races, and severa...

    @oursin_360: Its only a star cluster, not the entire galaxy. They traveled within clusters without relays back in the original games too (think back to ME3, when you'd leave systems by going to their ...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Origin Returns. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    Between their returns policies, early access and free trial policies, and free games policies, Origin is a really customer friendly system. If they had a larger library, a much larger library, I might...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic I'm only a few hours in it and so far I don't see the complaints about the writing.. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    @devise22: I've been messing around a lot and also playing multiplayer, so I'm not actually that far into the game yet and I don't know how far it really goes. But I think it varies quite a bit; if Bi...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 473: I’ve Always Cared About Science.

    @cvagts: During the EA Access period (I haven't checked if its been fixed yet), there was a chance that if you created a second character and started the game with them, some of the triggers from the ...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic I'm only a few hours in it and so far I don't see the complaints about the writing.. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    There are some genuine missed opportunities (like only having two new races), some botched moments, some overly cheesy writing, and some questionable plot choices; but the OT had all that as well, jus...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 473: I’ve Always Cared About Science.

    @mrpandaman: Maybe the consoles are much worse than the PC version, but between EA Access and post-release I've played about 15 hours and only encountered one major bug (the one related to second char...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Can anybody verify this 'new Sara face' thing?. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    I ended up pretty happy with the custom face I made for Sara. I went with preset 2 and made what limited facial changes I could; but the big things I did were give her default Sara's hair colored blue...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic How buggy is it?. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    I only encountered one noticeable bug (other than animation glitches), but it was a bad one; and I saw a bunch of people on reddit saying they had the same bug. If you start a playthrough with a secon...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Fast and Furious discussion thread - 20% Angel. on the Off-Topic board

    5-7 are a giant, awesome blur to me. I know I liked all three of them a lot, and I remember some of the set pieces pretty well; but I couldn't tell you what happened in each one.I liked 1 a lot, it wa...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Quick Look: Mass Effect: Andromeda.

    @ccyhd: For me, the MP became fine as soon as I started hosting all my matches myself (I have a 200Mbps connection). Before that, when I was joining games with other hosts, I'd say around half the tim...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic To PC users with a high-end GPU: Are you able to play this at ultra settings at 60 FPS?. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    My 1070 with Ultra settings hits 1080/60+ at all times, except a couple very noticeable moments when it completely slideshows. Basically anytime there's a scene in the 'cinematic camera' where one par...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic So is anyone actually still mad about 3?. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    I was mad and disappointed. I loved the series and the story it was telling and thought it deserved a better send off. I had also already played too games/consumed too much other media than ended with...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Guess the Metacritic score for Mass Effect: Andromeda. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    I think mid- to high- eighties; but it depends on how reviewers decide to weight different things. For instance, the multiplayer is completely fine and a lot of fun I thought; so that'll be a big poin...

    @petiew: @zeik: Interesting. Thanks. I may need to give this a shot once I'm done with Mass Effect. It does look really good.My one concern is that I played the first Nier (Gestalt I think, not Replic...

    Even though I played FFX when it came out, I do not have the same nostalgic attachment to it that I have for FFIX, so I'm curious to see if I react differently to this playthrough.I played the HD Rema...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Quick Look: NieR: Automata.

    So since its sounds like a playthrough isn't that long; how different are each of the playthroughs? Is it the same gameplay content with some different dialog or is completely different areas and boss...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Already tired of the ME:A hate. on the Mass Effect: Andromeda board

    I agree OP. The criticisms are real and valid (except the voice acting IMO, that all seems completely fine to me), but I think most of them are being blown out of proportion and that people are ignori...

    @sammo21: For sure. Which is why my comment was filled with "personally" and "to me."And yes, that's a lesson everyone should have learned after Destiny's Peter Dinklage. That said, I thought Natalie ...

    @sammo21: Personally, I thought the dialog has been fine from what I've played so far. I haven't been picking the heart/emotional options though; could be those are worse. And I don't understand any o...
