    I was considering doing a playthrough but I doubt I'll have time now!

    This may sound like a petty complaint but some of the names of characters who have been released are dumb. Peebee? What even

    I HAVE A LOT TO DISCUSS ABOUT ANDROMEDA.



    If you join the "Andromeda Initiative" and sign in with your EA account, then watch the videos, you'll eventually unlock a unique item for the game when it releases.

    The have 4/6 of the videos released and they are all informative. the most recent one has been on the characters. There has also been one about the ship, the new "mako", and basically it's hyping me up soooo much.

    I have it pre-ordered on Origin as I plan on playing on my PC.

    I really like how they are doing the main characters. You pick one of the Ryder Twins. If you pick the female, your male twin is still in the game and vice versa. Kinda similar to the DA 2 twins but not quite.

    Your father is in it too though, Alec Ryder! He was an N7 operative and was one of the first one who went through the first Mass Relay found on Charon. So he's an old soldier. What's neat is whichever twin you pick, you get to fully customize and then your dad and sibling change based on your changes. You can customize them but not as heavily. Just tweaking.

    The new "Mako" looks super fun, and you can give it paint jobs!! That's fun. I loved the Mako, I don't care what anyone says.

    THEORY TIME:

    One of your Teammates is Cora Harper. You know The Illusive Man is actually named Jack Harper. CONNECTION?! Who paid for this trip and how was it legal for them to send an AI? ME: A, the Arks left between ME2 and 3 apparently! AI was still outlawed.

    (SPOILER)


    Other interesting theory but I'll have to do some throw back explaining for fans who didn't know.

    Drew Karpyshyn was the writer for ME1 and 2. He also wrote the novels. Between 2 and 3 he had a falling out with producer Casey Hudson. Casey Hudson scrapped Drew's Dark Matter plot idea and went with what we got. They had been setting it up since 1 (Source: Check out the tali missions of the collapsing star in 2) Drew left Bioware. Fans hated the Hudson ending. Hudson left bioware, Drew is back! Yay!

    New trailer shows some strange dark things around a planet and the bad guys saying something about the "scourge/scorch" (not sure which). SO I'm wondering if that whole Dark Matter theory is back but for Andromeda.

    Yeah, her, she's another one of my silly trivial gripes. It's space, right. The far future. Cool. Lots of different cultures, species, ideas. So why does she have "Let me speak to the manager" hair?

    This is perhaps the only game I know for sure I will be buying this year. The reboot is a good idea and a lot of the changes sound cool. I need to know which of the voice actors are better so I can choose my twin! I'm leaning towards the girl since I was always male Shep.

    Rumors are that the cinematic trailer is going to feature Sara Ryder instead

    I'm sad/slightly amused at how butthurt "fans" are over Cora and the Asari are 'ugly'. (Seriously - look at the YT comments...)

    but yeah I'm replaying 3 atm and I actually had forgotten how epic and emotional it is. ME is probably my favourite gaming series.

    I hadn't even looked into any comments. People are really saying that? I think Pauls momager joke was just a joke. I think they look fine

    Although comparing that picture I linked, You can tell the difference in style. TIM looks like they tried to go more ridged detailed while Cora is smoother. That may just be those two characters though, i'll have to look into it.

    And yeah, ME3 is such a roller coaster.

    I never make jokes and I am actually boycotting this game as a result.
