Well speaking of hilarity I tried the new Andromeda trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNG_szaXNNU

It might just win comedy of the year, seriously feels like a malcontent 4th grader's angry fan-ficy spew or something.

It just goes to show the state of AAA gaming, the supposed biggest hits come across as such blergh.

I thought Dragon Age Inquisition was all right but I might very well just pass on this altogether.

How could Bioware go from the relative majesty of Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights to this garbage? Yuck.

Ok Artim, your reaction got me to finally watch the first piece of media about the game I've laid on eyes on.

In truth, I didn't think it was that bad but I thank you. The trailer alone confirmed I will be selecting the female MC because there is something inherently cheeeeezzzy about the way the obvious male lead comes across in that by way of his voice acting to me.

Considering I'm just nickel and diming Baldurs Gate 1 now, I think it will be quite interesting for me playing this and that somewhat side by side.
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

It really didn't seem any less cliche than the trailers for Mass Effect 2 or 3.

Agreed, I see no difference honestly.


This game has such a Phantasy Star Online feel to me, it's painful almost. I seriously hope it follows in the gameplay mechanics somewhat, and allows you to jump in and out of games with friends to explore and do stuff. I would get so locked up in this game, I'd probably put on 50 pounds from being on it nonstop. Easily my most looked forward to game of the year so far, Nier being a close second.

Yeah, that trailer got me pumped. Like, I think I'd rather get it over Persona 5...I mean, of course I would. I'm actually caught up with Mass Effect, so I can play it right away. I haven't beaten a single Persona game yet, and I'm starting to question if I even like some of them. But I've also seen the gameplay of Mass Effect: Andromeda, I've seen how its evolved from game to game. I think I can trust that I'll have a good time with it. So maybe that'll be the next retail game I buy.

I just watched it... not sure what everyone's complaining about. Voiceover seems pretty typical, in fact, a little less bravado than I usually expect from action sci-fi, game or movie. I'm pretty sure ME 1-3 had far more cheesy lines. Game still looks like gold to me.
