If I could voice a little bit of a complaint about Mass Effect: Andromeda... after hours upon hours of hard work of making the new galaxy as fit for the new arrivals as possible... being promised a simple text change and not even getting it was kind of a strange idea of a reward.

While I wouldnt say...

While I wouldn't say ME:A was a disappointment...I would say it was....well a bit of a let down. Even more when they nixed any future single player DLC yet still cash milked the multiplayer adding in new races etc that a single player DLC likely would have featured which just ticked me off. *sighs*

I would honestly change it to the name of a real hero of the game - SAM.

Ryder 1...Wouldn't that be naming it after your dad ? (badumtsss)

@Robert Archer: Yeah, I agree with you there. I wanted to like the game, but I ended up taking a 4 month break in the middle before finishing it because it just didn't keep my attention all that well.

@mamiser: Haha, indeed. It was kind of sad how many times SAM saved the day, and though there was a whole questline about getting rid of him you couldn't do it in the end.

@Sharp-Claw: Well he DID die on that planet so I suppose that is fair...

If we are all out with talking about our honest feelings about the game, then I have to confess I only did one playthrough. To compare, even in linear games like Assassin's Creed series I did multiple plays.
I don't want to be mistaken for the rabid hater, but I can't lie and say I enjoyed playing it - and I really tried :-(
Shit, just writing that makes me fell kinda bad about the situation.

Yeah, I doubt I'll get far enough into the game to experience this particular disappointment.

I think my issue is that I don't really like any of the teammates. Like, I don't dislike them, but...meh. Add in the facial animations that sometimes look like they came from a glitched Sims game and...yeah. I've played worse games, but I've definitely played better ones as well. It's a solid mediocre experience.

You win! (prize is a toxic world which might in the future be habitable named after you). (And you still have to wait 587 days for paid vacation). Thank you for saving the initiative and Andromeda (for now at least).

@mamiser: I've only managed one playthrough too, and with a 4 month break in the middle at that. I feel kind of ashamed because I normally plow through games like nobody's business :/ But at least I didn't abandon it so, there is that!

@Guesty Guestface: I know what you mean, alas. I didn't really click with any of the team mates, though I liked a few npcs, and it kind of took a lot of the fun out of it for me.

@wildmageguy: Hooray! ... perhaps we should consider upgrading the sibling to a secondary Pathfinder, so there might be a chance for a paid vacation in 294 days at least?
