    If you had to describe it in three words, which would you choose?

    If you think the before face doesn't look ugly, your judgment is invalid. All Andromeda faces are trash.

    Do you even read, bro? We are comparing 2 faces; one is from an earlier build of the game and is much better looking by comparison...bla bla whatever and you come up with nonsense with "polish a turd"...who's polishing what? where it is actually "uglifying" if anything.

    GUI developer included a picture of Cora from an earlier build in his portfolio, this is what Cora used to look like, top right(Liam & Peebee also look different)
    [​IMG]

    Same iteration, I assume she was used as a standin as the Ryder models weren't done yet:

    And another iteration on the left:

    Really feels like a fat ugly chick got into a higher-up position and decided to make all the women ugly.

    Looks good but still plastic. Anyway, you can tell they were consciously trying to make a beautiful face there.

    All of the people in andromeda were weird. Ryder(M) was small and scrawny, with a slightly normal face, Ryder(F) looked autistic. They even made the krogan weird by making the leader krogan either a woman, or have the stereotype of a gay mans lisp, for some odd reason.

    Peebee's face looks like a drawing, and Liam looks like they're using a picture of Donald Glover.

    Yes but that drawing looks attractive, as opposed to the Peebee we ended up with:

    At least Andromeda had a lot of funny bugs and stupid decisions,i laughed my ass of at the krogan fight. It was a game to get drunk and embrace the stupidity and have a fun time. While anthem is just boring splodge of reused fad mechanics and incompetent developers,also the frost byte engine is shit. Also lets not forget the glorious casey hudson,i am sure that they had a lot more superior version of the game,but he decided to make a whole new game and started over,and thus the end result.

    Men, does the narrator of that video not sound like if the asari medic from Andromeda smoked too many cigarettes?

    That was p. evident since the very first reveal of Anthem and Andromeda is way better than ME2 and ME3 as well, not that that's a high bar to clear either.

    Bioware is dead. Something is wearing its skin, but it's dead.

    ME2, yes. ME3 has IMO been judged unfairly and deserves a fresh look by people critical of it. It walked back many of the bad design decisions in ME2 while having much better combat than ME1.
    I'd still rate ME1 the best but I had the most fun playing ME3 tbh. I don't think a meh ending is enough to doom the game to shit status.

    No fucking way. ME3 is fucking terrible. Finishing that game was an absolute chore, before we even begin discussing the ending.

    And this is coming from someone who completed ME1 about 3-4 times, and had at least 3 Shepards ready to take through the entire series, although that dropped to two after ME2. ME3 was a crushing disappointment.

    It is a corridor shooter without anything of what made the other two games good. It is boring,linear and dumb,it is the first bioware game i wished to end faster.

    The most obvious problem with Mass Effect 3 is the tone. Bringing law and order to the frontiers of space as a galactic lawman is the cool fantasy the series leverages. The core of that fantasy is freedom and autonomy. Mass Effect 3 is about a hopeless war where millions of people die each hour that you aren't engaging the final suicide battle. It is too dark.

    Also, good games contain boss battles.
