    Well.....surprised / not surprised but still heartbroken. I hope the future will see a new ME game, but the pessimist in me can't help but think this is the end.

    No idea about Lotro, but given that so many felt the price of $15 for the Necromancer in D3 was justified (which was only one class, and a bunch of cosmetics), $40 for a whole race where you obviously can play different classes doesn't sound that bad.
    The race is $10, that's the issue: they don't make it available for a few months...
    $40 is just the "early access" to it, which is stupid, since the expansion was marketed partly by the high elves. Then with launch they turned it nto: no, high elves are not in the bundle, not even in the game till Winter - unless you cough up +$30 to play it right now.


    As for the review, it is really good, pretty much summarizes what I think about the expansion :wink:  Maybe I'd lash out a bit more on the whole Radiance-of-Many-Colours issue, since it's a shame they've brought it back from its well-deserved heap on the junkyard. It was a bullshit concept on raids before (like all similar gear score-esque gates), but unleashing it on the whole open area is just straight-out stupid. Hopefully it will die just as fast as its former version did, or maybe even faster.
    And actually right now, unless it's just changed, it's $80 to access the race. It's $40 for the "xpac" with no race and no fun cosmetic extras. The only thing included in the base xpac is the level booster so you can get grinding the faction rep in Mordor right away.

    Radiance 2.0 won't die in my opinion. It will be left to languish in Mordor and the next area and content update will ditch it. It's lot like WoW's seasonal content. Throw it away after a year.

    The review was pretty good to. Like I said Turbine/SSG has a long history of spinning up new systems and ditching the old. The game lacks, has always lacked, strong leadership with a vision in my opinion. But, woulda coulda shoulda doesn't get you the game you want. Blizzard isn't any better with WoW now they just have more money to throw at the wall annually.

    That's what happens when you try to push SJW feminist propaganda in a game... That's what happened when some SJW feminist ruined Baldur's Gate. I was going to get the GOG versions, but I had to look hard for old CDs from back in the day just to avoid tainting my HDD with SJW feminist propaganda.

    If Mass Effect is to come back one day, it better be after this SJW fad is over and all the SJWs have been made to shut the F*** up by regular normal people who got tired of their bulls***.

    I have similar feelings. I came to this game rather late, during the recent trial/sale. What I experienced was a great game that I thoroughly enjoyed with minor flaws. By my logic that makes it a pretty enjoyable experience. It still gave me everything I wanted. Crew members I grew attached to, enjoyable combat, and feeling like a big damn hero. As someone who has extensive experience with the original 3 games Andromeda wasn't the disappointment everyone tried to make me believe it would be.

    The only way in which I feel let down is the same way any game I enjoy lets me down. I don't want to stop, I want more. I'm sad that we won't be getting to search for the Quarian Ark, as I put so much time in with Tali and her people and really wanted to touch base with the Quarians again. But if we had gotten that I'm sure even then I'd still be sad once I'd done it.

    The multiplayer mode isn't something I do a lot, as it can be fun but ultimately seems pointless. I was hoping however that a female Quarian Engineer would eventually be added. Without Ark DLC though I highly doubt they will do so.

    My one big hope overall is that those of us who are saying we liked Andromeda, care about Mass Effect, and don't want to consider a future where we never see another one, are somehow reaching the people making the command decisions in EA and Bioware. And of course that there are enough of us to matter.

    As expected - shouldn't be much of a surprise.

    ME1 and ME2 were the best.

    What followed was not so good. I know that some fans like MEA - but IMO anything bad enough to kill the franchise is pretty damn bad.

    Remember the game was launched pretty broken

    ME:A effectively killed the series, whether or not Bioware Montreal was entirely to blame is moot point, the game was plagued, and still is for that matter, with bad animations, and poor writing, you could even say that the failure of ME:A draws some parallels to the ill fated 'new' Ghostbusters movie, where they diverged from the tenets of the original 'IP' and were poorly written, to give EA some credit, while Bioware Montreal is no more, they did salvage what they could. :/

    I think they'll reboot it eventually.
