Some non-spoilery thoughts on Mass Effect: Andromeda because I’ve seen a lot of people worried about negativity surrounding the game:

  • the squad banter is great, and there’s a lot of it, and it’s really welcome. it brings a lot to exploration and fighting
  • speaking of fighting, this is the best shooting in a 3rd-person game that I’ve seen in well, ever. the jump jet is ridiculously fun to use while shooting.
  • and exploration? fantastic. Ryder’s scanner is super handy and gives you a lot of information about the environment. the level design is great, as are the plant and animal designs.
  • I’m a big fan of the new dialogue system. paragon/renegade was something heavily associated with Shepard. this new system feels a lot more like Ryder, and a new start.
  • the facial animations aren’t all that bad, unless you’re going to record your conversations and then go back, frame-by-frame, looking for a few ridiculous expressions. you don’t really notice all that much when you’re paying attention to the story and what’s being said.
  • the eyes are…flat (I’m also playing HZD atm, and the eye textures in that game are incredible, so it also could be bias on my part)
  • the music, so far, is good. I was really worried about it, but I find that the galaxy map theme is the best piece so far.
  • the galaxy map - holy fuck, it is so fun
  • cc - not impressed, tbh. twins don’t always look identical anyway, and it’s pretty disappointing that you can’t customise Sara or Scott. the presets range from okay to horrible. Inquisition spoiled us.
  • I’m really happy with the writing so far. lots of great characters that I’m loving. the voice acting is pretty damn good too.
  • we’ve finally got height differences. hell, the salarians are tall. so are the turians. feels good. feels organic.
Down 5.5 pounds!

Since Christmas Eve? I think that’s the last time I weighed myself. Not bad for all of the holiday shenanigans that went on between then and now!

I finally feel like I’m back in a good routine after moving and starting a new job Jan 3rd. Having my own apartment and kitchen is THE BEST!
