Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda

Here's the trailer from EA Play this year.



Looks like we're part of an expedition to the Andromeda galaxy. I'm looking forward to new experiences in Mass Effect, but I'm kinda annoyed that this is the second E3 where all we really get is a trailer. Where's our gameplay? Who are we working with? Who are we playing as? Come on now...

Also, where is the other BioWare content?? What's going on with the new IP they teased? What is the future of Dragon Age?

I was very underwhelmed. This is the second year in a row at E3 that they have just shown art and cutscenes for Mass Effect.

Shepard was named for Alan Shepard, the first American to visit space. Strong speculation indicates that a character named Ryder will be the name of the woman we saw at the end of the trailer in honor of Sally Ride, the first American woman in space.

This is the ensuing joke:

"half of mass effect fandom: *carefully plotting every intricate detail of Ryder’s pre-Andromeda life, coming up with different solutions to work with the as yet untold story, using other games’ character creator to map their potential character’s aplearances, visiting nameberry and 2000-names and babynames 453 times before the game’s release*

other half of mass effect fandom: i cant wait to play as Dick Ryder"

Also, Polygon talked with Mac Walters about the game. LINK.

Some interesting stuff about why they brought back the Mako and why they're going to a new galaxy. Goal seems to make this a fresh point for Mass Effect, whether you played the original trilogy or not.

Edit: Here's a video interview with Mac Walters, the project lead.

Don't know if anyone's seen this post on reddit (or already know all this), seems to sum up everything know so far pretty well:

Looks like they are staying away from using any terms to do with colonisation now after the back lash a few months ago and instead we are "exploring" new worlds.

Such Hype over 4k but will it actually run well and at a decent framerate?

I wish I had the money for a 4k TV. Still looks pretty even at a lower resolution!

Finding it really hard to be hyped for Andromeda right now with the lack of actual infomation on the game, it looks pretty and all but I don't care about 4k at all so that tech demo didn't do anything for me except make me wait a couple of months for something that will hopefully get me hyped.

Same.

We've heard multiple times that there will be two Ryder children active in the story and you will play as one of them. I'm interested in the dynamic, but this latest video basically that we'll start the actual hype train in November.
