    That...that does not sound encouraging.

    Haha, why anyone would put those games on their CV is beyond me.

    A perfect excuse to revisit the masterpiece that was Andromeda!

    See above posts. Nothing else to be said on this.

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Step One to fix any future Bioware game: Don't use Frostbite. Otherwise, it's DoA.

    Was there any appetite for another MA game after the last one? Putting aside the lead, what even got this project a green light?

    So BioWare is working on this.. the new Dragon Age.. and revamping/continuing to support Anthem.

    I think it's telling that no one has any faith in their ability to do any of those, much less all three, correctly at this point. Does BioWare have any goodwill left?

    The story wasn't bad, just not fleshed out. The planned DLC got shelved to focus on Anthem development. Casey Hudson won't let the IP die.

    I’d be okay if they abandoned the Andromeda story and went in a completely different direction. I find it extremely difficult to care about any of that story now.

    I certainly couldn't taking anything ME:A related seriously after all the shit I've seen. I'd just be constantly waiting for the gaping hole that is their face to open up and swallow me.

    Andromeda likely would have been ok with more polish. The gameplay was actually fairly solid and most of the characters were fine.

    But the janky as fuck animations, glitches galore, and poorly written story (that just kind of randomly ended) just tanked the game from the get go.

    I was pretty bummed the Quarian Ark DLC stuff got chopped, that was an interesting plot thread to me.

    I didn't think the game was really that bad. Especially not after some of the early patches.

    I mean, Bioware has quite a number of studios. They arent just one team in one building.

    ME:A was like B-/C+ work. I never played it pre-fixes but I enjoyed the game enough to replay it twice. What concerns me is the story aspect of Anthem was just horrible. ME, I think anyway, is founded on an engaging story with interesting and varying characters. Anthem had none of that... or maybe just echos of it. If that's what's being brought to the table for this next ME then spew. Forget it.

    Quarian Ark stuff ended up in a canon novel if you wanna find out how that thread ended.

    Ooh, I'll have to check it out. Still would have been neat to play through but a book is better than a cliffhanger.
