    20 minutes into the Mass Effect QL and they still haven't talked at all about the framerate

    I thought I was experiencing poor internet connection or something but noooope

    Same thing happened in PC. Sadly, it really is a poorly optimized game. It never got this bad with Dragon Age: Inquisition. I feel like a Stockholm Syndrome victim. Despite all this flaws, I'm going all in.

    I'm glad I'm not a big Mass Effect fan because I'd probably be in a bad way right now.

    I don't know, I have a GTX980 (basically nowadays a hair's breadth more powerful than the standard graphics card for gaming) and at the settings I had I didn't really have any issues with frames (though pop-in I think is basically par for the course)

    I'm coming out of the trial slightly disappointed by the dip in standards but that standard for me is coming from the context of Mass Effect 3, a game altogether stupendous in quality formed by 7 years worth of mechanical refinement. It's partly high expectations and partly legitimate problems in Andromeda's quality

    Just played the first 2 hours on my GTX970 and pretty old i7-2600k
    game ran totally solid for me and I had a blast with the opening stuff

    I dunno, feels like Mass Effect? I don't get why people are mad

    I played the first mission and I can see where all the criticism comes from.
    The internet is vulnerable to hyperbole of course, but compared to the last 2 years of AAA games, the faces themselves and their animations are definitely subpar.
    Which then, in me at least, creates a critical look effect, where instead of paying attention to the story I'm looking for other goofy shit. Which probably exists in every game, but once you're thinking about it, it becomes quite noticable.
    For instance, I have started a conversation from just the wrong angle, which caused me to float up on a bench, and have both my conversation partners be out of frame below me during the entire conversation.
    And the run animation still being really whack.

    https://my.mixtape.moe/yugchn.mp4 is really interesting. They definitely decided to switch face models between april 2016 and release, to something a bit less realistic/more cartoony. Which would explain why the rigging may be bad, and the options in the character creator so limited.

    @Hardtarget I have an i5 and I think it's bottlenecking my PC. I do have to say that after installing NVIDIA's day 1 driver I have 60 fps on high.

    Also...yeah, feels like a ME game to me? Maybe I have low standards or something but I'm having fun.

    I think people are more disappointed by ME:A than it actually being terrible. It's been 5 years since ME3, and I think a lot of people were expecting something "new" and ME:A seems like more of a sidestep with some jank to it.

    I played roughly two hours so far and I've been fine with it, but it also isn't exactly grabbing me either.

    The lighting alone in the leaked video is so alarmingly better, the final build looks like the two characters were shot somewhere else and green screened in they're so much more lit than the scene.

    I dunno, it just seems like a game that they rushed out the door before it was ready to make the fiscal.

    As a librarian, I feel obligated to urge people to check their local libraries to see if they carry the series on DVD. My current one has a lot of the movies available.

    But is the shame of walking out of the library with the entire F&F collection more or less than the shame of leaving a mini-mart with an armful of Old English?

    If Activision is going to continue to drop a CoD game every year, I think rotating between Historic, Modern and Future settings would be a good idea.

    Remember when we were all tired of WWII? And we were begging for shooters to go to modern day or scifi?

    And how Modern Warfare was awesome? And, while the plotlines got silly, Black Ops, Advanced Warfare, and Infinite Warfare were all actually really good?

    I don't know that I want to go back to WWII.

    I never wanted to leave WWII and specifically dislike modern combat. So I'm super stoked.

    I'm getting my hands on the films for their commentary. If I havent seen or remember 1-4, would I be ok to just have the commentary over the movie without knowing whats going on? I want to actually give the movies their due, I just dont feel like I have the time or patience to sit through the first 4 movies twice.

    I've done exactly that with every move save the first and I've probably enjoyed watching them more with the commentary than I would have without. In fact, I probably wouldn't have sat through all of Tokyo Drift had it not been for the commentary.

    Yeah, you don't need to watch them twice. Just put the movie sound to half strength and put on subtitles then listen to the commentary.
