Seems like it's not a problem restricted to Logitech.

A fly in the enthusiast-hardware ointment has been a bizarre conflict with the Corsair Utility Engine software that controls the lighting on my mechanical keyboard. I was getting an unchanging black screen from MEA at launch until I uninstalled this. The fix is no biggie as I don’t often fiddle with the keyboard’s settings anyway, but finding said fix in the first place was frustrating, and clearly a patch is required

Yeah, It really isn't very obtuse. Talk to NPCs.

If you do that, you'll discover a quest that both gives you access to Gerudo and mostly solves your heat problem (though it's going to cost you a decent chunk of rupees.)

You guys should stick a FAQ heading at the top of the page and add this stuff.

It's hard to believe that this game is using the frostbite engine just look at Mirrors edge catalyst and BF1 both have fantastic facial animation how did they mess this up so badly?

Using the same engine doesn't automatically make the facial animation the same. If you have (not to sound harsh) incompetent animators but the best technology in the world, it is still going to look bad.

I'm pretty sure BF1 used facial mocap. This isn't practical in a ME game considering how much dialog is involved.

Got a pro controller (basically a comfort necessity for me) and stuck in a 32GB SD card I had sitting around. Might get a travel case at some point, but haven't had a reason to take the Switch out of my house yet.

Oh... and I stuck a couple of pieces of packing tape on the inside of the dock. This prevents the smudges caused by the little rubber dock inserts, and no scratches yet.

The official VOD is here. Giantbomb's shoot will be up later.

As far as ignoring the first wave of reviews, there really shouldn't be any reason to do that. Reviewers are going to have at least a week to play through the game, based on when review copies went out, which sounds like it was at least a couple of days ago. It's quite likely that every major outlet and then some will have their reviews ready when the embargo lifts at 1 AM central on Monday.

Yeah, it would be more accurate to say I'm not especially interested in reviews from the major outlets in this case. Judging by DA:I, they're not going to be very useful to me. I'll wait a few weeks for reactions from people who take time to think about the game and who are less willing to overlook problems.

Soon as I learned it was going to be DA:I style open-world gameplay with resource gathering and crafting, I lost interest.

Pretty much. I couldn't make it through three hours of Inquisition, and the RPS preview of Andromeda strongly suggests Bioware's writing is getting even worse. I'm going to ignore the first wave of reviews and wait until the more considered opinions start coming in.

Scissors, Microfiber Cloth, Double-sided Tape.

Simpler - get some packing tape, cut it into strips sufficient to cover the rails in the dock, stick it over the rails. A cloth isn't necessary. I'm not convinced the tape is even necessary, but I did it in the spirit of caution.

So there. Mental redemption for me?

I would suggest that trying to draw philosophical conclusions from English spelling is the path to madness.
