    The discussion about giving money to mod makers is interesting given the evolution of the similar discussions in the Open Source field :) - and some of them really make a lot of money from that! :) - Check out Fedora and the like!

      mostly because the patch wasn't really searchable. So hard to find. plus, Ashley upgraded her sassiness levels after trump was elected.

    So, as one them that bought ME:A Day One, and Nomad collectors Edition, I am a little biased, but I dont think it was all that terrible, sure there were meme spawning glitches and a few bugs ( I only experienced 2 out of 177 hrs play time, had far more in fallout 4)
    I just think the issue were loud and those talking about them issues made 'em louder. 
    I think there really needs to be credit to the studio for making something enjoyable, esp considering how F'd-in-the-(E)A they were by their parent companies and consumers, but I think if they did put out DLC it would be bought, and played. but instead we get a motherfucking book.... which ill buy... cuz I have an addiction... to Bioware...
    ( Also Fuck Electronic Arts)

    Instead of the "winners" of the  Glitchies coming out of sealed envelopes, they should be revealed by opening a loot box.

    I'm not sold on calling andromeda a franchise killer.

    I do think we're not going to get any more mass effect games in the andromeda setting, but I fully can't understand saying we're not going to get more mass effect.


    Like, as bad as ME:A's reception was, I feel like ME3's was still worse, and yet we still got ME:A. I don't remember any FTC or BBB complaints about ME:A. 


    It's the profits which seem to matter, and every indication seems to be that it was profitable, and I think what will happen is that bioware/EA will take a few years to not think at all about ME, and then come back to the franchise with a new game.


    Andromeda seemed to be in development since a few months after ME3 was released, they really never gave themselves/never had the time given to breathe and figure out what they want from a ME game before getting into developping it. 


    I think it'll be six or seven years before another mass effect, but companies like EA and bioware aren't going to throw out established, profitable franchises.

      From a HUGE Mass Effect fan myself, I think the ending of ME:3 (which itself was IMO the result of a rushed release date) made Bioware and EA incredibly gun shy about where the franchise should go next.  Which is why you get things like an entirely new galaxy, even though in game you re-tread over the same tropes the original trilogy already covered- Andromeda needed to be a fresh start, but not to the point of alienating fans already wary of what came next.

      Wherein lies the biggest problem for ME:A- it was designed by committee.  It was a game laid out by the dueling whims of the fans, and the developers tried to give all things to all people, in order to avoid another ME:3 fiasco.  The result was a conglomeration of EVERY idea and piece of feedback Bioware received, which had the effect of giving the game some FANTASTIC ideas (squad interaction, beautiful character moments) piled in among a whole host of bad and/or unnecessary ones.

      That's the difference, I think, between Andromeda and the improvements in something like Mass Effect 2.  Feedback is still important, but make that distinction between something like game mechanics (which, incidentally, Andromeda absolutely NAILED) and tweaks vs. something like, "How should we re-write the plot", Mad-Libs style.

      I honestly hope the franchise isn't dead.  There are still a lot of die-hard fans out there willing to shell out money for a good product.  Hell, I wouldn't even mind a continuation of the Andromeda story- there's a LOT of good potential there.  But give it a vision.  Figure out what story you want to tell, and then tell it well.  Be a finely cooked Filet Mignon, not a glorified salad bar.

      And tell EA to keep their paws off.

    you guys should check out the indie game "For The King". its on Steam. it is 3 player recomended, you can play it solo and controll 3 characters but the best experience is playing it with 2 other friends! :)

    at around 55:30 you guys talk about Need for speed and the random boxes for new parts. I agree its stupid. however it would have been great if it was buy the part you want, or buy a cheaper box and hope to get it, gotta love me some gambling. xD

    Free seasonal DLC and its 40% off rn, Battlefront 2 is actually worth picking up if you're a big star wars fan because the grind is pretty much gone, I got every hero except leia and palpatine within a few hours of gameplay. Only caviat is the lack of server browser/squad system like Ryan said, and the fact that the hitbox on the skinny as fuck separatist droids seems to be mapped exactly to their model so they're very hard to hit.

    Honestly every game I played that came out this year were great.  I haven't played this yet but if I did I'd pick WWE 2K18 as the worst game for 2017 that I've got.

    Adam, I’m curious, have you finished Nioh? Honestly, I was into it until the limits of their budget/creativity started showing. This isn’t really a spoiler, but if anyone does not want to know anything about Nioh, you can skip the rest of my comment.


    About halfway through, you have seen every non-boss enemy the game has to provide. And since they can’t provide more variety, they throw waves of enemies at you. That is made even more insulting by the last few side missions that come down to, “hey, you beat these earlier bosses, why not fight two at once”.


    Of course, part of my problem is that I experienced button lag. And before anyone says it, I never complained about button lag in any Souls/Borne game, and I was using the same system.  Plus, the game is either glitchy or it has weird/stupid boss mechanics. Certain insta-kill attacks either have their windup time shortened as the boss fight progresses, or the game just can’t render it properly (it is a very busy game).

      Nioh is one of my favorite games that came out this year aswell as being one of my favorite souls-like games to date, and i have to completely agree, especially with the side-quest comment. After finishing the game, extending even to the first DLC, Team Ninja just has you kill earlier bosses but THEY GROUPED UP.

      Up until the first DLC i was set on 100% the game, but after seeing that shit i just decided to finish it and be done with it.

      Minor Spoiler: It was especially annoying when you finish the first DLC Main Quest and you get a new side quest on how the boss you just killed was a clone, so go kill him again, the exact same way, with the same movement, nothing different.

      Still reccomend the game to people who like the souls-borne series, the games good, with cool mechanics and an interesting enough story, just hate the bull-shit side missions that they padded the end-game with

    Friendly reminder that Bioware said they could give Andromeda a few more months and people were like "No, release it now!"

      Well in the 6 months they "supported it" and fixed some problems, it didn't help the game very much. So them taking more time to do what they did in that time frame wouldn't have actually helped it very much save people not bashing it so hard. People still would have complained about the game because it's not technically where it needed to be. And story wise it was kind of lacking to begin with, especially due to them taking the A-team and moving them to anthem (not entirely sure of all the behind the scenes stuff honestly). A lot of the bugs were the same bugs that were present in Inquisition, specifically quests in the menu and items still showing exclamations and things along those lines. That were fixed in Inquisition I might add, but are still present to some extent in Andromeda. I liked Andromeda, and love Mass Effect, but it seems like they put all the effort into anthem and sent this game out to die.

      @0brady0 It certainly does feel like that, but what would've helped is releasing single-player DLC and not focusing all future development on their microtransaction mode. It's a damn single-player game from a single-player company, and continuing the story in comics violates Bioware's "we'll never define a single canon or say what gender a protagonist is" stance. I loved Andromeda, I think it has the best gameplay in the series when it works correctly, but Bioware's just a husk, pun intended, of what they used to be.

      @DavidtheWavid They should have continued supporting past the six months they did period. But yeah, I can only hope Dragon Age doesn't suffer the same. Definitely Won't pre-order Bioware games anymore.
