Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda - 3/21/17

Glad to hear that they are starting to patch it. Honestly I don't mind waiting a few more months to start playing, I have plenty to keep me occupied until then.

Good thing I only played a couple hours in, since now I'll want to re-start, especially because...

Over the next two months we’ll be rolling out additional patches which will go even deeper and look to improve several areas of the game:

More options and variety in the character creator

Improvements to hair and general appearance for characters
Guess I'll wait a couple months to restart, which should be fine - my plate is so fucking full right now with Zelda, Nioh, Nier, Horizon and a few others; Mass Effect can wait a few months until it's improved.

But they are not fixing the glitches/bugs yet?

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda - 3/21/17

I haven't played in a week (waiting for the patch announcement), but I decided whenever I do get back to it to just leave it on Insanity and play the areas that aren't kett bases until I'm a higher level (I'm level 13 now). Hoping for a checkpoint patch by that time, or an easier time once I'm above level 20.

Might as well just trade it in and wait it out, then. And then never get around to it until it's dirt cheap on PSN. That's what I'm assuming Horizon and this are going to be for me, since Persona just came in the mail.

Patch is live. You can skip planet to planet scenes. Too bad I had already done most of the galaxy.

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda - 3/21/17

I sat down and played for several hours last night and this morning, and I'm getting back into the swing of things. Feeling more capable. Gaining a few levels has really helped with combat on Insanity, now that I can strip shields off of enemies pretty quickly with both biotics and tech. Tried the Architect fight on Voeld at level 16 last night for laughs. Damaged a leg and then blundered into a blast and died pretty quickly... These are essentially the techno equivalent of the dragon fights from Dragon Age: Inquisition on Nightmare difficulty, and the strategy is the same: just have to wait until level 25-30 before attempting them.

It started rough, but I'm enjoying it more the more I play.

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda - 3/21/17

Just finished it. It's annoying that if you want to finish some of the "additional tasks" you almost have to blindly explore, because the orange marker doesn't show up to guide you.

Other than that, I did not get the threesome that was alluded to, but I did end up having Peebee and Suvi, so there's that. I also finished Keri's task, but that didn't lead to any "you made it back safe" sex, though.

I guess that's it until they release the DLC material, I reckon. I liked the game a lot. Now to head on over to Youtube and watch all the romance cut scenes.

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda - 3/21/17

The deluxe edition is on sale for the same price as the regular edition this week at Best Buy and it looks like it still comes with the steelbook when you add it to the cart. I guess I should have waited.

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda - 3/21/17

I finished it last night, exactly four weeks since it came out. Yes, there's a lot of filler, but I enjoyed the game quite a bit. The voice acting from the leads, especially my male Ryder, was on point. Having a sardonic and sarcastic personality myself, I loved that my Ryder was the same way. Carefully deployed use of the word fuck was really effectively done too.

Looking forward to future updates and DLCs. From the ending, it seems obvious that the upcoming DLCs will be:

Spoiler:
Finding the lost Quarian/Elcor/Hanar ark, the mystery of Jien Garson,
and some sort of adventure quest with Reyes, similar to the one with Aria in Mass Effect 3.
