So, they also agree that ME3 sucked and broke the saga, good to have a common ground here.Can't argue that one-Relationships and romances will be more realistic
-Friendships and romances will take into account character temperaments. Some may be harder to talk to.
This was already in ME2, nothing new here.I think they're trying to say they've enhanced what was in other games to make it more complex or more realistic-Romance won't be limited to checking in a few times, then getting a romance scene.
Again, already in DA:IThey're saying it's NOT going to be like it was in previous games-Mass Effect Andromeda is a story about becoming a heroShepard was already a hero when ME1 took place. He was the first human spectre for a reason.-The characters will be much younger and untested, drawing from themes of feeling out of depth or like an outcast
Like the noble or no one in DA:I, who became the leader of the Inquisition ?Never played it. Moving on.-Humanity are the aliens this time, it's the story of a stranger in a strange land
LOL, Humans were already aliens in original ME, they were considered as lesser race.Agreed.-BioWare are aiming for a character that is more than just a typical space marine, someone who recognises the impact their presence is havingI am reading as this isn't going to be your normal butch, run-and-gun character. The character in this game is going to be more aware of the impact his or her decisions are making on the world(s) around them.-Instead of your character already knowing a lot about the Galaxy like Shepard, you're going to be discovering all of this stuff with themNobody in the game universe had knowledge of those topics until they were right in front of everyone's face. I think this is speaking to Shepard's awareness of the worlds and species around him. (i.e. the Systems Alliance-You won't have the kind of support Shepard would have. You're not exactly a Spectre this time
We were ? You had limited characters in ME1, 5 specter weapons, no support in ME2 since you were operating in terminus system, no support in ME3 since the galaxy was at war, Shep NEVER received any physical support in games.In ME1, Shepard was as spectre and therefore had substantial resources at his disposal including but not limited to the uber expensive Normandy. In ME2, he had a shiny new, improved Normandy and the resources of Cerberus behind him.-The story of the game will be more personal this time, even though the scale is still grand
Just like ME2 and DAI you say ?...-The trilogy will act as a foundational background, but won't be a focus. There will be explainations for new players on what Krogans are, what mass effect field are etc.
Good to see you're casualizing the saga... keep going until you rate it foe PEGI 3.All they are saying here is this is a new game in it's own setting. The original games will be used as the basis that painted the world of the new game. Nothing wrong with that.-The trilogy was about a cinematic, grand, space opera with a titular character. With Andromeda they want to move away from this
YOU'VE JUST SAID THAT THE STORY WILL BE PERSONAL... MAN...This statement is not in conflict with the previous statment. They are saying the original trilogy was grand, epic, etc... but this game is going to move away from that (i.e. more personal)-Instead of saying "You are this person" it's about saying "This is your role and this is the way you can play it"
Do you know that you can make different characters in ME1 ? You can... then import them into ME2 and so on...This one's tough for me. I'm more or less with you on this one.-Andromeda will still be a human centric story, as it gives the player a foothold in the alien narrative
-In ME1, humans found themselves to be the underdogs in a larger galaxy, and this is ultimately a core theme of Mass Effect, not just the trilogyHave to agree with you there
So, let me get this straight...
Humans found the existence of Reapers.
A human spectre fought against a Reaper and killed it in ME1.
Reapers, acknowledged this and decided to take on humans in ME2.
Human Alliance had the biggest fleet in ME3 (depends what you did in ME1 but that was regardless the case in ME3)
Human led galactic alliance beated Reapers
A Human Spected led this
and.... Humans are still treated like crap ?
Hmm... Artistic integrity much ?
There is nothing wrong with the integrity. Just because the humans accomplished everything you've listed out doesn't mean that the other species are suddenly going to worship them. Prejudice and hatred can be deep-seated things. Our own world is full of it unfortunately.
