Well, then.

I was already leaning toward a hard pass on this one, but I think I'll just go play the original games again instead.

I love these games and as much as it hurts I can't get over the pathfinder's facial expressions... This is a game of dialogue and even after that 5 minute video I'm already so sick of the main characters facial animations I don't want to see another minute of them.

bugs are bugs, funny walking, character pop in, holding guns wrong, whatever. But the main character's face isn't going anywhere, it's the main character, and her facial animations are absolute shit and that seems to be the case with everyone else as well. And some of the voice acting, oh man, brutal.

also the crazy eyes, they wander and move rapidly. Once you see it you cannot unsee it.

I can't stop staring at the frozen dead hands and how poorly they try to hide them. For 2017, millions of dollars and 5 years of development there's so many inexcusably amateurish designs decisions and obvious cut corners. People who pay full price for this should feel ashamed of themselves.

I had no idea Bioware were such big Monty Python fans as to put an homage to the ministry of silly walks skit throughout their entire game. Really it's an incredibly brave call by management to push the genre forward by including MPython skits in their cut-scenes, but some may question the conflation of 70's British comedy with a serious scifi game. But in retrospect it all makes sense, after all, the first 3 entries loosely followed the plot of The Life of Brian.

This is America. He can post whatever racist bs on his personal twitter account. He is just one person, out of many thousands that worked on this game. Many of them good, hard working people that do not share his views at all.

They didn't stop this train wreck tho, and they deserve nothing they didn't earn.

This is Bioware Montreal. Everyone there thinks like that. From the lead designer to the writers to the animators and so on. I will be shocked if they don't start blaming the overall negative reactions on straight white males. Just repeat Ghostbusters 2016 because that worked so well.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. There is no pattern here of de-emphasizing attractive models...

Y'know, I've never actually watched PewDiePie before today.
I can't attest to his other stuff...but, this particular video is actually pretty funny.

The usual shitshow is underway.



Updated to this (notice how Lead Facial Animator for Mass Effect was removed):


Followed today with:


Too bad about this post from a year ago:


Aww the special snowflakes:


Expect the big news story to be about those evil straight white male gamergate bullies attacking a powerful womyn game dev yet again. They're following the Ghostbusters 2016 rulebook in the final days before launch.

Manveer Heir no longer works at Bioware at least. That guy is an actual asshole. But out of the hundreds to thousands of people working on the game, there are going to be shitbags. Even in my job as an Air Traffic Control, my tower has a max of 13 people, and there are always a few assholes. It's just how it is bro. An estimated 1 out of every 4 people suck.

Lol that lead facial animator! that explains a lot actually.

I might be laughing on the outside, but I'm sad on the inside. Sad that instead of an amazing experience in the mass effect universe we got shit.

I really hope The Old Republic finally dies out so they can go back to making games, oh and fire all the people at Bioware montreal
