    The gays are pissed they can't fuck this thing.

    But no such qualms about not being able to fuck the black guy, obviously.

    Actually, even the nu-BSN is hardly excited about the game. Some die-hards (or, maybe, just trolls) try to be positive but most are clearly disappointed.

    Halve that and you have the budget I'd guess (considering ME3 $40mil), otherwise don't disagree. I'm ready to give credence to the rumors that this was dumped on the new guys while the previous devs went to do something else. Would explain the mess. I'd forgive all the sins of the game for some decent writing, which is something majority of mainstream games manage to somehow consistently avoid. I'm seriously wondering how much of this to blame on the medium, since it's something I get to see so very seldom. Then there comes a game once every blue moon that does it right, sending me wondering full circle why it's so fricking hard for the other folks. :(

    Some up and coming composer at Bioware saw this:



    ....and thought: Yay, my mom told me I'm special. I can do this too!

    And he did this too. An exact copy of it.

    This has probably brought up by someone somewhere in Codex, but procreation aspect created a stage for some very interesting power play in Galaxy. Sadly it went underused but some of the decent parts of ME2 and ME3 had some of that.

    Krogan with their super breeding and need for space and Asari, who can reproduce with any species and offspring will always be Asari. Geth, another faction that could just keep building more Geth. For me it looks like Humans and Turians, (Quarians even if they had a planet) perhaps Salarians were in pretty interesting situation what comes to galactic political play.

    Of course some humans, BioDrones had to come and mess it up because they were willing to fuck anything, so I guess they decided in BW so, let's forget this and make more species 'romancable'.

    Multimillion dollar budget and 5 years in the making. That time sure didn't went to animations and creating like 3 new weapons.

    The Codex really should add Sara Ryder's facial expressions to the similes list.

    I have continued my scientific research about the magnitude of shit. Of course without playing the game. The reason for the bad facial animations could be that the facial structures were altered after the animations were already set in. It would appear that PeeBees chin is smaller and her face in general more feminine than in the original trailer. She is also bluer. Did they un-trans her after the early trailers had raised the transgender headlines? This issue is hard to investigate due safe daily intake of Bioware is very limited even with protective equipment like whiskey and rubber gloves.

    How are the rpg elements of this game? How does it compare to the other Mass Effects? If the only bioware games I ever liked were the Mass Effect games will I like this one (if it has some rpg elements and isn't just pure console)?

    Actually, Tali's face has better details (you can see her eyes) despite being behind a giant mask; good body language too.

    It had to have good body language since you never saw her face. And when you did, they stole that pic from the internet.

    You saw her eyes every now and then but it was never in a truly significative manner.

    One or two fewer gay male romances and they leap to the conclusion that the devs feel they are nothing. What a bunch of drama queens. Jesus Fucking Christ. Please, Trump... bring back the draft.
