I'm getting a bit more hyped for Andromeda but still wish it had some actual gameplay.

Here is some more infomation from Gameinformer about the new ship you and your crew will be using, the Tempest and what you can look forward to be doing on the planets you discover. I like what they are doing with the Tempest to make it feel more alive by having your crew members move around specific parts of the ship instead of remaining in a static postion also another little thing that I think is neat is the view outside the ship will reflect your where you are in the galaxy.

I noticed a female Turian and a Krogan as squadmates.

Also looked like biotic charge is still in the game as of the end gameplay. Seems to combine with the jetpack mechanic.

Looks like we aren't the only ones from the Milky Way establishing a presence.

Dialogue wheel intact and we still have interrupts.

Nomad driving looked alright. Also seems to have a booster. Sweet jumps?

Lot of the innovations here seem reminiscent of Inquisition on the sandbox front.

Gameplay looks fun. Crafting leaves me weary though, I hope we're not going to have a Inquisition situation where we had such an excessive amount of stuff to keep track of. Hopefully they can strike a balance.

Also the animation of Ryder disarming the Turian looked stupid as hell. Facial animation as well just looks... off.

The time has come, and so have I

That game looks really pretty to say the least. Cool colors.

I too thought the disarm animation was cheesy. Very slow and awkward with no resistance from the thing with the gun. But cut scenes don't make a game for me.

Planets looking like what No Man's Sky should have been? Combat looks very active and I like it

I suspect you'll continue to be disappointed with crafting Cruck, though I feel little sympathy for you after playing Dead Space 3 co-op with you.

As for the facial animations, I don't know what it is about Frostbite 3, but BioWare has struggled at facial animations since they switched over.

I also don't think we should rag on No Man's Sky with Mass Effect. Mass Effect is a hand-crafted experience.

We also got to learn about Arks and the Nexus in the latest Andromeda Initiative video.

Looks like we're essentially taking a citadel with us.

That gameplay video makes me excited. Personally, I look forward to possibly having crafting, and tweaking my gear all the time.
