    Yeah timing may be in my favorite here: got a backlog of games including Zelda to play. In 6 months this should be half the price and well-patched and then I'll pick it up and dive in.

    I'll miss out on most/all of the MP, but as a 99% offline gamer I would have had to buy PS Plus just for this, effectively doubling my costs. Bleagh.

    From the 5ish hours I've played I don't think they're that bad.

    I'm going to go into this with tempered expectations as to what I should actually expect from the game. But also hype as hell because I've waited 4 years for this it's Mass Effect. So my hype train is chuggin' along for sure but at a reasonable speed.

    Of course, Ryder's cuteness is also really getting to me.
    If it's true that the romance scenes are extremely explicit this time I'm not sure how I feel about it. One part of me wants to see Ryder strip down but the other is too jealuous. Don't judge me.

    The sex shot, specifically with Cora x Male Ryder, are more in line with the Witcher 3...minus the unicorn. Dat (Cora) ass..

    No I'm talking about Sarah/Female Ryder.

    Probably won't be playing this game anytime soon but I'm leaning towards the Vetra romance option already :p

    Cora is Male Ryder only. Apparently the FemRyder/PeeBee is pretty explicit, but to be honest, the sex scenes remind me more of the Team America sex scene than anything else.

    I'm not sure if the animations will ever get patched, TBH. They mo-cap'd everything, IIRC. That'd be a pretty expensive fix.

    TBH I've been playing for about 8 hours and while the faces have looked a bit derp at times I don't think I've been distracted by it more than once or twice. I've been enjoying it but it's absolutely not for everyone. If you were expecting something like ME2/3 you'll be let down, it feels much closer to the first game albeit with massively improved gameplay. There are some mechanics that I think could have been explained better and I'm not sure what the purpose of inventory limits is but I guess I'll find that out later.

    It also has to do a shitload of world building before you can start and that means the first hour or so is pretty dull. Writing doesn't really feel any different but the character for sure don't have three games of personality under their belts.

    In short, if you aren't part of the groupthink demanding bioware personally give everyone their $60 for ME3 back and close down for good then you might have fun with this. If you're unsure then maybe redbox it first.

    If they can't fix the faces, then fine. I'd settle for them fixing the walking.

    I think a better question would be: Is it DA:I all over again?

    I have the deluxe edition game preloaded and downloaded the update this morning (also went and opened my MP packs to see what I got, already off to a good start with a Krogan) however I'll have to wait until I am out of work and the gym with my girlfriend tonight before I can play it- and man is the wait killing me.

    I will obviously reserve judgement until I have played it, but for now I don't really care about the criticisms that the game has gotten. Every game gets criticism in some form these days, and it's mass effect. A new mass effect game. That we have waited 5 years for. That's enough reason for me to be excited to play it regardless of the naysayers.

    You mean of Ryder and Peebee? You better not have spoiled that for me. (Oh lord my pants) Besides, I already told you. I'm not sharing.

    While "good" is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to character creation, I like how my Ryder turned out. Too bad I couldn't make her paler. Was attempting to make her look like 2B from Nier: Automata, but I realized pretty quick that it looks weird when trying to implement anime like face modeling in what's attempting to be realistic(ish).
