Yup, the character creator is pretty bad. The default male I don't mind at all, but anything is better than the default female lol.

If someone would release the face of the real model as a patch, I'd play it.

I've been playing since 9pm. So far I've mostly been exploring a planet, shooting bad guy aliens, and leveling up. Also I created a white male character. Idk, it all feels like Mass Effect to me. Haven't had any technical issues either on Xbox.

I don't believe anyone here who is critical of games is emotionally attached to them. At least not as obvious as the few white knights.

Well, it's almost 5am here, and I've got to get some sleep soon. I've been playing this game since it released at 9pm 3/20 PDT.

I played a few matches of MP, and several hours of SP.

I am sensitive to SJW crap and all that modern BS. I hate it and avoid it and try to not spend my $$$ on it. I like what I like, and will not apologize nor move an inch to make some internet SJW happy.

Well, at least so far in these first several hours, I haven't seen anything to annoy me. It's just been a fun game. I played the first trilogy almost a full 3 times; I really liked it. It was one of, if not my favorite, franchises of the last gen.

This feels like a natural progression. I was looking at this game like it was the first game of a new company. I assumed there was pretty much no one left from the prior games' staff making this one. I was looking at it as a new franchise inspired by the old games.

Well, it feels like a sequel. So far anyways. I really like what I'm playing. Although I will say there is no one that I'm interested in having a romance with. So far everyone is meh in that aspect, but I know I haven't even finished the prologue stuff yet, so we'll see.

Anyways, so far, so good.

I'll try to update this thread or any new ones with my thoughts. I have no biases; if the game sucks, then I'll say so. I'm not getting paid to say otherwise, and I don't want anyone to buy it if it sucks. I'll tell you if there's any BS. I've heard there's some trans and gay stuff in it. I saw a thread on NeoGAF complaining that you can't get a certain achievement in you want to be a gay character. {btw fk typing while drinking}

I saw a thread complaining that there's an achievement for romancing 3 people, but if you choose to be a gay male, you can only romance 2 dudes. So if you're gay you have to be bi to get the achievement.

wtf ever. I'll care when I'm dead.

What a bummer this game flopped pretty hard compared to expectations and previous entries in the series. I personally love ME 1-3. Yes, I didn't even mind the ME3 ending. Will anything knock Zelda off for Game of the Year? Maybe Red Dead Redemption 2 or Mario Odyssey. Or Last of Us part II if it comes out this year, which is unlikely.

Well it sure flopped critically, for what that's worth (nothing).

Zelda is amazing; I love it. There is a dark horse in the new Assassin's Creed. We haven't seen anything yet, and based off the last couple I wouldn't fault you for assuming it's meh, but I'm hoping it'll be good. They skipped last year, so let's see if that paid off at all.

Yah, I'm going to try it anyway. The series has enough very high quality entries to earn enough points with me to buy it and see it for myself - even if opinions are mixed, and form my own opinion.

Zelda is pretty amazing, I think open world games will have a tough go beating that out, but I do really hope Assassin's Creed and Ubisoft find a way to do something new and invigorate the franchise, and improve the way they do open world games. I'm admittedly a bit sour on the IP at this point, but if they produce something great, I'm going to play it. A year off was a good idea. Maybe it was enough time to refocus.

Great year, either way, as far as games go. I still have to get back to Torment: Tides of Numenera. Red Dead 2 coming, and a lot of other games that could really surprise. Vampyr, Sea of Thieves, etc.

Why does GOTY have to be a sequel? It's only March. Is nothing else with promise coming out the rest of 2017 that isn't already a franchise?

Yah, no, I completely agree. I listed 2 above. Vampyr and Sea of Thieves are getting pretty promising attention, and could be pretty massive sleeper hits. Just saying, its shaping up to be a pretty great year as far as games go. Even if MEA disappoints some people. (still going to try it for myself at some point this year)

Dude, that's the best thing I may have ever read here. "buy it and see it for myself"...I know that takes courage and also budget concerns; but I feel making your own independent educated opinion based on physical experience is the best way to have an opinion worth listening to.

Not everyone can do it easily, but I always prefer to hear the opinions of someone who has played something for themselves (that they paid for) and given it a fair shake to a reviewer or random commenter on the internet.

I have liked many games that have been bandwagon-hated or reviewed less than a 7/10. People are too varied and have their own baggage to go with their opinion. I can't take the "hivemind" as gospel. If I did I'd be in church every Sunday and never drink or watch rated R movies.

I'm always a try for myself kind of guy, and that's what I'll be doing when I get off work today, go home and play Mass Effect. I liked what I played so far, which was really only multi, and I'm sure the single player will be a great experience like it has been in the past.

When it comes to reviews, I put little stock in them. I always like to bring up Guilty Gear 2 (panned by critics and fans alike) as I happen to think it was a great game.

The whole "You can fuck anybody!" thing has gone beyond cringe at this point.

Beyond all of the other shit, its just not engaging character development.

I didn't mind that stuff in Witcher 2 because it's part of the character. The games are kinda tame when Geralt rails almost anything on two legs in the books. Bioware romances come across as if designed by an awkward teenage virgin who jacks it to an old Sears catalogue.
