I'd really like to know what the criteria for the confidence metric is. What if I enjoy a certain indie game but others don't? Now I won't get cards for it because of them? That's bullshit.

I'm guessing revealing that information would help to enable bad actors to game the system again. Legitimacy of the game and not negative reviews would be the measurement so nothing to get angry about yet.

You'd think they'd be better off patching and removing the offending music, even if it's not replaced.

BioWare Montreal is now a support studio as Mass Effect is put on hold, say sourcesBioWare Montreal is now a support studio as Mass Effect is put on hold, say sources

The "main BioWare" is still working on another IP and were the ones responsible for previous DA and ME, this was a new group.

ME3 threw away the whole story from ME1 & ME2 for some retconned garbage with plot holes light-years wide followed by Red:Green:Blue.


DA:I was so tedious I couldn't finish it and just watched the laughable boss fight on YouTube.


DA2 was a shameless money grab.


SWTOR was terrible and I regret my early-access/pre-order to this day.


Now this.


Sorry, it's time to be honest. Bioware hasn't done anything worthwhile since ME2 and DA:O. And I don't expect it to get better.


What I expect is it to get worse. Like Maxis. Like Origin. Like every other thing EA has touched.

Don't blame the team for bad leadership from the top...


Odds are they were managed by people who leveraged their experience in traditional media (TV / Radio / Film) into leadership roles in video game development because media is media is media (it really is not).


There's no way anyone who plays games and who did actual production work on Andromeda was happy about forcing the product out when they did.


And 'talent' tends to be measured by products shipped, not the quality of those products. A person who shipped 5 pieces of poop in a year is technically 5 times more talented than a person who releases 1 piece of awesome in the same time frame according to the metric most executives follow.

They missed the whole spirit of ME and delivered something Ubisoft like.

Annoying mini-games are a Mass Effect tradition. As far as those go, this one is certainly the least annoying, least frequent, most optional and best implemented of the lot. That's still not saying much, but... I'd expected worse, given its predecessors.

A pity they chose to implement this tradition while avoiding some of the staples.

No Vin Diesel as Groot either, just won't sound the same.


Seriously though apparently their engine was largely upgraded for Batman and Walking Dead S03, but I haven't gotten around to either yet

I enjoyed TWD Season 1, but never got around to starting season 2. Have it installed, but I haven't watched any trailers of season 3 (atleast nothing until I play through s2 first). I may take a look at batman's gameplay. I heard reviews were sub-par, but it could be a way to find out if the gameplay experience is any better. Maybe they fixed it enough from the depressing state it was in for their earlier games.

No very average TPS with some shootable-blow-upable barrels (red) and power boxes to help explode or electrocute enemies
