Life is Strange introduced me to new bands and I ended up buying a few of their albums. The soundtrack by Jonathan Morali was fantastic. Hope it works out well for Daughter for Life.

These are not the droids you are looking for... they are NPC clones from Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda was a financial successMass Effect: Andromeda was a financial success

I read the financial report and it doesn't say how much ME:A contributed. Considering how quickly it went on sale, the dismemberment of Montreal, the very low user scores across all platforms, EA should consider themselves lucky they recovered expenses based on hopeful nostalgic purchasers. I hope I don't fall for that same trick in another 10 years when they try rebooting the series.

The three pieces of DLC that would have saved Mass Effect: AndromedaThe three pieces of DLC that would have saved Mass Effect: Andromeda
Jac Atax Avatar

The people I played ME3 multiplayer with, did so to experience being a Quarian, Krogan, Asari or any other of the great species invented. I loved rocking a Volus with a shotgun or Batarian gauntlet. MP was a place you could chat with fans about their favourite characters and moments.


Bioware made a mistake in thinking that it was the combat that pulled people in and gave it longevity. On that false assumption they built the mechanics of Andromeda to the detriment of story, diverse alien cultures and a team which would mimic all previous Bioware teams, a Lawful good, Neutral Good, Chaotic Good and so on.


Instead we got a game which has big areas yet feels small, few planets, few races and characters that can be irritating instead of enjoyable. I wouldn't buy DLC for this shipwreck as Bioware have lost the ability to tell compelling stories. You can see they are trying to go down the shoot and loot path with Anthem, they might as well since storytelling is no longer their strength.

I couldn't agree more. I love the OT because of story, characters, and good dialog. It was the core of the OT that brought people in and made it the pinnacle of RPG's. With Andromeda, that concept was thrown out the window in favor of open world, world building, and a more multiplayer type combat system. None of which I remember people begging Bioware for.


They decided they are going another direction and the core of the OT isn't what is important anymore and it shows. Weak story, forgettable characters, and dialog that is aimed at the nickelodeon crowd. Bring back what made the OT great and I'm in, otherwise I'm done with ME series.

Interesting take on the story, I could picture Ungoliant taking female form but not her spawn. The narrative they've woven is still compelling.

Creation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacementCreation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacement
Jac Atax Avatar
Was expecting this.
Mods give Elder Scrolls and Fallout games extraordinary longevity, this provides an ability for Bethesda to extend additional revenue to Bethesda way past the lifetime of the game. Having curated mods sounds like higher quality, but since Morrowind times official mods and DLC's have also messed up their own games. I suspect the 'official' content will reuse the best ideas of the free modding community as per the EULA Bethesda has for user content.Reply

The rest of the world don't like the paid mod, giving the middle finger to the devs who come up with this since the community believe that mods should be forever free, and Bethesda should keep their greedy hands off their mod access.


I think this was their third attempt on trying to introduced paid mods, and watch as this will ultimately backfire against them.

If you can get 5ghz through a single thread then maybe Morrowind would finally not be a slide show in Balmora.Reply

Omg so true, this game is so badly optimized... can't run this 2002 game at 60 fps with a 2010 CPU...
