    What's not to like about a game where the toughest bad guys are architects? Only calling them accountants could have been better.

    Wait, you crash on their planet, shoot them until they are all dead, yet you call them the baddies?









    It is a little weird. You travel to a galaxy that isn't yours, land on a planet you don't own, kill the first aliens you see then just shrug about starting an intergalactic war. "We tried nothing to avoid this and it happened anyway!"






    Um, that's not how it happened at all. The aliens attacked first. You attempt to talk to them. They respond with weapons. If you played the game you would probably know this.



    Did you even play the game?

    You walk up to them in battle armor with guns drawn, start yelling at them in a language they don't understand, and then (if you're me anyway) shoot them in the face when they start getting rough with Fisher.

    Maybe they eventually shoot first if you wait long enough, but I and every let's play I've watched shoots them first.

    So did you ignore the rest of the story about who they are and what they're doing to the other Andromeda native race? Shoot first... shoot second... who gives a shit, They're the bad guys FFS.

    And yeah, getting rough with my squad mate is a good enough reason to shoot them in the face.

    You don't have to wait for too long to see them shoot first. I just slowly approached them with my weapon holstered and they immediately attacked us. I guess it was the range that triggered them.

    Guess you forgot about how they shot down your shuttles and killed the majority of all initial team.  But you got streamer videos over my actually experience so I guess you know better :awesome:

    BTW, from what i've seen you write in every ME:A thread so far.  I really highly doubt you have played this game.  If you did, you wouldn't even need to bring up streamers for your argument.
  • YashaXYashaX Member EpicPosts: 2,928
    Hmmm, I loved ME2: great story, good combat, interesting characters, pretty tight gameflow overall. I am just not seeing the same magic in the reviews/video playthroughs for this one.

    Also what is with bioware making bonking such a big part of the game, but making all the characters so bland/ugly? Main character in particular looks like such a downgrade from Shepard.

    I am more interested in finding out why you have not played the other Mass Effect games. I also read that if you customize your character instead of using a preset they animations problems are minimized.

    Uhhh @MrMelGibson THEY don't shoot down your shuttle.  The planet/EMP does that.  Wow, you've completely convoluted the whole mess.  And you have a CHOICE whether to go in guns drawn or not.  And then they SHOOT THE GUY before you can respond.  Thereby necessitating it.

    But I don't think half of ya'll have played this.  There are SERIOUS flaws with the game. This ain't one of them.

    Overall I am enjoying this game, 29 hours in got every quest done on 2 worlds that are offered at the time with only one bug out of the tons of quest I have done. Yeah the face animations are bad but I could care less about that, it is 90% the eyes which are hard as hell to get right in any game. I have enjoyed the story and look forward to completing the other planets. Just for the record the Khett shot at me first!

    Technically I'm "middle aged" (since life expectancy is 80 or so)... I certainly wasn't watching LIS when it originally aired, more like Gi-Joe... :P

    I just started and I have to say I'm enjoying it. The game looks better than the videos I've seen. Iselin is correct, they did a good job with the skin. I'm also running it on Ultra so I would expect it to be decent.

    Haven't gotten too far yet (last night was pub and bad movie night) but I intend to invest quite some time this weekend.

    I do have to say that the female face choices for your avatar seem worse than the male faces.

    Not sure if the captain lives but I'm totally going to boink her (per the original video)

    If you think those are bad, wait till you run into the real tough Remnants... especially the architects... they are tough mofos. I've managed to kill 2 of them so far and I really hard to work for it. Some advice: get used to dodging early... getting used to doing that while fighting an architect is the wrong time to start. I speak from experience :)

    Interesting. Maybe it depends on whether you stick to protocol or choose the common sense "I'm not going home in a body bag" option. I picked screw protocol.

    You don't know any of that when it happens.

    If you're mugging someone and shoot them for not giving you their wallet, it doesn't make you a good guy when you find out later they're a member of ISIS.

    Hey wow! The next Mass Effect is going to look so much better. The characters on their own are very promising and a huge improvement. Take a look here: http://i.imgur.com/HQkuvwy.png

    Your shuttle gets knocked out of the sky because of the maelstrom that the remnant monolith is creating.  Which was turned on by the Kett lol.  So they are responsible for your crash.  Then they proceed to kill off other members of the other shuttles before you even run into the first group.  Who are about to kill another member of your landing party.  

    Do tell of these "SERIOUS flaws".  Other than a few animations, I have yet to experience these "game breaking flaws" as you and others seem to suggest.  36 hours in and still no game breaking issues.

    Just the tactics I use if they might help,  get a sniper rifle and work at head shots.  I got sniper rifle that does 1k damage will kill anything that is not shielded in one shot.  Think before getting the 5th version it was based around 700 damage or so and is a one shot/reload.  But you can take out an entire group in about 20 sec using it.  Just start with the non-shielded ones should get at least 2 of them before they can spot you.   You can even kill them from out of range(without the crosshair turning red)  if you so desire which makes them run for cover but not return fire as they can't see you.  Head shots to the shielded will normally drop there shields then use pull to lift them in the air since their shields are down while you reload.  Overall I am using things that CC like pull and can't remember the name of the other one where is  sucks them into a vortex to slow things down while I take out all the non-shielded one.  Oh and drack is a beast, paired him with Peebee for the extra CC pull and now just steam roll thru almost all of them.  Overall just find something you like to use and stick to it you will be flying through them in no time.
