    Meh. Just another boring Western RPG with big boobs and horrible combat.

    Also, that Indian dude who is developing this game is annoying. Have you read some of the crap he says? He hates white folk and yet deep down he wants to be white himself. At least that's the stance I'm getting this from.

    ^ Someone drank their hateorade this morning.

    I'm super pumped about the various weapon and build options. A biotic-melee build looks like it would be hella fun.

    I've always been a sucker for sshoot n' loot, or Diablo-esque loot systems with seemingly endless upgradeable weapons and it seems like this is a little closer to something like that than previous mass effect entries. I even noticed there was rarity tags on a few of the weapons which gets me excited.

    It's got a more engaging combat system than anything SE has shat out the last decade.

    agreed in the story department too except ME3. Actually. even ME3 is about on par with the stories SE has churned out lately even if I hate it.

    @Mirage, nah. Star Ocean 5 has the best combat ever IMO.

    That's not developed by SE, just published.

    The gameplay looks amazing so far. Combat seems like it will be very enjoyable.

    Here's hoping that the story and characters are equally as good. If they are, this could easily be the best game this year.

    That combat footage was great. Seems like you can be good in a variety of ways and they have made it as flexible as possible.

    Decided to try to beat all three before Andromeda, started 1 at the weekend and just beat it. Took me half the time as it did on my original playthrough according to my save files! I've never played as either a Paragon or a Femshep before so I wanted to give it a whirl. I still prefer Renegade by smurfing far and kept regressing into my old bad habits of either clocking people in the face or being pragmatic whenever I got the opportunity. I'm disappointed that Paragon choices aren't nearly as penalised as they should be. Doing the right thing should be hard. The only choice I can really think of was in the Bring Down the Sky DLC. I did not want to let that Batarian prick go but it was the right thing to do to spare those lives. More like that for Andromeda, please!

    Maleshep and Femshep are basically the exact same with their dull lifeless voices so I can give or take them. I guess it comes down to romance options. I let Kaidan live this time to give me the option but I went with Liara in the end. Garrus or Thane in the future though? Choices, choices!

    After learning my smurfing love of Vanguard charging in ME3 multiplayer I'm excited to give it a whirl in 2. Vanguard in 1 is of course awful so I stuck with my tried and tested Adept. Singularity is still as broken as I remember.

    BioWare has always edged towards idealism when it comes to Paragon or 'good' choices. I don't mind it so much, because I always play good guys. I'm playing Dragon Age: Inquisition now with an 'honest' character, who's made some rough choices and it is smurfing tough for me.

    Bring Down The Sky does have a good dilemma though, that's for sure.

    As for the voices, FemShep is definitely better than MaleShep, but they both improve as they set into their voices more over the course of the series.
