    Feel like this video repeated a bit much within itself. As for the game itself, while I'm not expecting perfect from it, even before the reviews and complaints about visuals such as human faces, I still know that as a long time Mass Effect fan, I will definitely enjoy it a lot. Also, claims that the multiplayer feels pretty similar to Mass Effect 3's is a definite plus for me, since that multiplayer is still my favorite multiplayer in any game, and it was well supported with free content updates. The only reason I don't still play it, is because I have Mass Effect 3 on my 360, but I'm a PS4 player now and don't want to have to pay for Gold on my 360 just for one game's multiplayer, when I have plenty of games I can play on my PS4.....

    If you had asked me a month ago if  I would be buying this the answer would have been "of course" but watch some game play and reading many reviews has left me concerned. It's not just the faces, which are terrible, but even the guns seem a bit off to me. I don't know, I'll probably still get it eventually but so far it seems very underwhelming.

    Personally, and this is just me, I can't support BioWare anymore after seeing some of the people they've employed.  I have a really hard time separating the artist from the art when I'm looking at spending hundreds of hours and dollars on a product.


    Even after a lot of separating fact from fiction on the employees that worked on Andromeda, there are a number of people that I just can't endorse giving that kind of commitment to.


    I, obviously, am not a plurality.  However, I'm choosing where to spend *my* money.  You do you.1

      I think I know which guy you're talking about. Here's the thing: probably just about every development team has its bad eggs, some who you would be very much offended by, even more so than the one that worked on Andromeda. It's almost certain that you'll be supporting a bigot somewhere when you buy any game that has a long credits list. The difference here is that you know about this one as he is active on social media. If simply knowing who the bad egg is vs understanding that there probably are some bad eggs is all it takes to discontinue support, I would personally find that to be a weak reason. This is especially compounded by the fact there are lots of people who worked on the game that are probably wonderful people who shouldn't be punished due to the words of one coworker. Perhaps the higher-up so should deal with their employee, but from their probable perspective, if he does his job without explicit bias then they have no reason to fire him.


      In the end I don't think that the knowledge of one bad egg is reason enough to discount the efforts of the multitudes more hard working good people.

    my expectations have definitely been tempered, still going to buy, but those dead faces are inexcusable

    The "more lines than Shepard" comment is incorrect. It's more lines than the squadmate with the most dialogue (so Liara).
