Really interesting how this is almost exactly what happened with XCOM2. GiantBomb's 5-star GOTY gets a sequel that improves on its predecessor in a lot of key ways, but makes a few damning mistakes that lead it to getting a middling 3-star reception. Incidentally I disagree that XCOM2 isn't far and away superior to Enemy Unknown, but it's still interesting how the pattern matches up.
"Dan will fix this playthrough up - he thoroughly played both games in the series!"

Oh dear god
If I was hungry, had been waiting in line for several minutes and it was a good meatball sub, I would absolutely pay up to $20 for it. I'd just skip dinner.
(That said, the hypothetical falls apart for me because I don't eat pork anymore, and no way in hell am I paying twenty bucks for a hummus or tuna sub)
Ben's Lens is back!
It looks like the grandparents were in their late 30's/early 40's when their grandkids were born. WTF? Can't the people who wrote this game do basic math and make them like 20 years older so they're at least age appropriate?
The whole family tree is fucked up.
? My grandmother was in her early 20s when she had my mom, and my mom was in her early 20s when she had me - meaning that when I was born, my grandmother was in her early 40s. This isn't unusual at all.
I'm actually really really disappointed that they didn't spend the whole Quick Look pretending the game was hilarious.
The colours, lighting and animation in this scene makes it look like something straight out of KotOR on the original Xbox.
Is that really a screenshot? Holy crap it looks like a Gmod video.
This game has unfortunately looked less and less appealing with every video. Now discovering there's no Quarian squadmate is the last nail in the coffin.
Maybe I'm wearing the rose-tinted glasses, it just feels like this game is utterly lacking the immediate sense of humanity (for lack of a better term) that pretty much made the original trilogy so cool. I mean remember you went into ME1 and there was Joker, there was EDI, there was Anderson, a mission later you get Garrus and Wrex - by contrast, everybody in this game just feels like a lifeless expository tool except for random moments where the writers want to give them a sub-Whedon quip.
I really don't like to jump the gun on being down on games. Just getting some real bad vibes here.
In a predicament. I really would rather wait for a bigger catalogue because putting down money for this... but man, as somebody who doesn't give a crap about basically any big Nintendo property... the new Mario and Zelda look incredibly exciting to me. Like, both of them are probably the most impressive-looking things I've seen from those franchises in a long time. It's tempting!
