EA says that Mass Effect: Andromeda was deeply flawed, but still didn't get a fair shake.

    They're arrogant, because they believe the overwhelming majority of gamers are idiots with too much money in their wallets.

    And they're right.

    40% of EA's annual income is from fucking microtransactions.

    The game was not good. I did not like the story, it's inconsistent. The Heleus cluster species are boring and cliched.
    I don't see how the gameplay is the best of the series- half the game are platformer jumping and fucking sudoku.
    Teammates were ok, not as good as some from original trilogy, but not bad.

    Yes, and on the Mass Effect online forums we refer to them as...

    Retards.

    Re-read the thread, many people think that gameplay is good. I think its ok but first time I played it was flawed with bugs- when I fought kett in the open the AI would get stuck and I just picked frozen kett off from a sniper rifle.

    More excuses. They somewhat blamed it as well on the release block. Stating it had stiff competiton.



    Bioware says the franchise isn't dead..

    The entire trilogy is back compat. Maybe it wasn't available when you tried it.

    It might be now but it was not then, it was right at the time of the announcement of andromeda, so I started a new play through with ME1 and got all the way through 2(the games seemed a lot shorter on the one, was really weird) anyway put 3 in and. NOPE not backward compatible at the time , really pissed me off.

    They should have started at 3 or made damn sure three was before announcing andromeda

    Also i don’t remember but on the one, I seem to remember it not allowing character leveling porting over from 1 to 2 like on the 360, I could be remembering that wrong , it seems like that’s the way it was.

    If 3 had been backward compatible there is a possibility I might have still gotten andromeda, but it was enough “f this” for me not too, plus the bad reviews.

    there barely any good games because game companies are greedy fuck who only want to milk customers witth a bunch of crappy games. If people stop being fuckin whales who pay for any fuckin microtransaction they will start to make good games again but its not happening anytime soon

    I was pretty surprised awhile back when there were some articles saying that the vast majority of games dont get finished by their players.
