One of my worries for andromeda is that the series is no longer going to be just Ryder’s story. It seems the series is going down a more Dragon Age style route, and while I love that franchise, part of Mass Effect for me was my attachment to my Shepard and her relationships with her squadmates. I wanted to experience a Trilogy of new adventures and characters with my Ryder - to get attached to a new protagonist and their development over a series of games.
I started playing Assassin’s Creed again and I forgot that the baddies are called Templars. So now I keep imagining the Inquisitor going up to fight Samson then Altair rushes in, knifes him, and just disappears.

Wow this looks like shit.
At least everyone isn’t slathered in oil like Bioware’s last game.
There are a lot of things to be worried about in regards to Mass Effect: Andromeda, and I see a lot of, frankly, deserved criticism directed towards the game (though boy is there a lot of undeserved criticism too). That said, even when Bioware is at its worst in storytelling and/or gameplay, their games never fail to make me emotional and get me invested in the cast. No matter what, I know I’ll have this game day one. I look forward to falling in love with Ryder, their family, and their crew.
I romanced Cullen during my first two walkthroughs. I decided to play with a male lavellan and romance Dorian during my third one. But I see Cullen and I just can’t keep playing because I suffer because I know he will end up alone if he isn’t romanced. Life ruiner.
I’m playing Inquisition for the first time since beating Trespasser and I can’t bring myself to have anything to do with Solas. I haven’t spoken to him unless I couldn’t avoid it and I’ve chosen to go adventuring one man short rather than have him in my party. I normally make sure to befriend all my companions even if I don’t like them but with Solas I don’t see the point. No matter what I do he turns against me so why bother?
