nomad 7

Finally started playing Andromeda, I’m on Eos for the first time and have gotten lost. The sun is killing me, my crops are dying, pls help.

 Let’s do some notes:

  • I’m playing on the computer and I know there’s been a lot of patches but the game does look fine to me. The eyes twitch a bit but that’s the only facial animation that I’ve had a problem with and it’s ignorable.
    • The rest of the game looks GREAT. Oh my god. Coming down on Habitat 7 was super impressive because of the scale of it all.
      • Finding the tree in the cave, all this green and gold on an otherwise frightening and dreary planet. You can see why the pathfinders find hope in seeing it. 
    • Eos is pretty too. 
    • The turians and salarians have a weird over knee bent thing going on? They’re digitrade compared to the first game but it’s only noticeable in certain shots. 
    • The hair is honestly the worst looking part of the animation. It looks untextured but it does move so that’s like a step up for Bioware though.
    • Cutscene animations are still super awkward, classic Bioware style but I don’t play Bioware games for people moving fluidly.  
    • There is no fucking music in this game. When there is music it’s pretty good but I’m driving around on Eos and it’s dead silence. I’ve been playing the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack and oh my god, it’s great. Try it.
  • Obviously I’m playing as Sara. I’ll have to see if I can get a screenshot of her later because she ended up super cute.
    • She’s an infiltrator, no biotics because that’s how I roll.
    • It’s my personal head canon that Sara is super out of her depth. Skirmishes with batarian pirates is a helluva lot different then being saddled with the lives of thousands of people, battling off an alien race, and tereforming an entire planets. 
      • Tann: “You’re nowhere near ready to do any of this.”
      • Sara: “Boi, I’m trying.”
    • I haven’t decided on a romance interest yet, I think I won’t romance anyone at least the first game. 
    • Sara is the kind of person that is incredibly awkward but also super genuine. She’s a kid. Sweet Jesus she’s twenty-two. Her brother’s in a coma, her Dad’s dead, and she’s been handed a legacy that she doesn’t understand. 
      • She jokes when it’s appropriate to joke but overall I’m playing her as a logical person who is always moving forward, trying to stay a step ahead.
      • She’s a hopeful thing though. She finds hope in the tree on Habitat 7, she tells Alec that she is hopeful for their future before he dies. 
    • The biggest thing I’m curious about in the game is Alec and also, Alec’s relationship to his children.
      • I’m playing that Sara is lowkey torn-up over his death. Parts of her acknowledges that yeah, he was distant, he never told her he was proud of her and he never said he loves her either. 
        • But then again, this is a family close enough to leave everything behind and go together to Andromeda. 
        • Alec died saving Sara. 
      • Everyone else is ‘let’s move on’, ‘we have to keep moving’, and that’s generally how Sara is as a person. Keep moving forward but Alec is a hang-up.
        • I’ve put just about her only ‘emotional’ responses relating to Alec. Such as when she found out that he had died or mentioning that she still felt Alec’s presence in SAM to Alec.
      • She is the pathfinder, she is fulfilling Alec’s role and dream. As his child and his successor, she is his legacy. So I hope the game turns out to be her not only stepping into his shoes and using this to understand her Father and who he was, but also to overcome the grief of his death. 
  • I was shook when I realized that the character’s have no clue about the Reapers.
    • Shepard might’ve been a crazy person raving about Reapers but they all left 2185. The Reapers came in 2186.
      • Imagine for a second that you’re leaving the house to go to work. You kiss your wife and children goodbye. The moment you walk out the door an entire army of raccoons attacks them. You have no clue, you drive off to work. Your phone is broken so they can’t call you. You come home later that day, everyone is dead or your wife is just like, “boy did you dodge a bullet.”
      • I guess they’re going to handle what happened with the Reapers eventually so I won’t say too much. 
      • Andromeda really puts the first three games in perspective too. It was so tragic that every 50,000 years the galaxy gets murdered, wiped out, destroyed. Then you realize it’s only the Milky Way that has this problem and it’s kinda absurd. 
        • Do the aliens in Andromeda have any idea? 
          • Imagine that every five years you get a new neighbor. You don’t pay a lot of attention to the new neighbor. It’s just that consistently every five years an Army of Racoons comes in and kills them all. Eventually one of your neighbors just nukes the entire fucking house to get them off. Some of your neighbors comes into your yard and is like, “can I stay with you?”

[Tianhua Xu]

Although you’ve had to quickly adjust to take on a new and unexpected role, you maintain a direct and professional demeanor. My guess is that your former military training and subsequent experience with command structure is serving you well here. Or perhaps, a solid and respectful approach to things is just your nature. - Dr. Lexi T’Perro

fake ah crew gta au aesthetics/inspo for a dumb fanfic [7/?] >> the nomads

“Got something you wanted done? Need extra bodies for a crew heist? Call in a nomad, and they’ve got you covered. Matt, Lindsay, Kerry, Jeremy and Mica were all nomads for hire. They didn’t belong to any one single crew, and they liked it that way. No real big commitments, but a ton of cash flow. They were helpful to any crew that paid well enough, and Geoff of the Fake AH Crew always paid well enough. Michael was grateful to him, honestly. Because if it weren’t for his boss paying so well, he never would have met his wife Lindsay who kept on coming back for the heists (and partly for the big crush she developed on him).”

Today in Feels: Vuvalini Melita Jurisic

It’s already been mentioned that she visibly reacts to Nux’s sacrifice back when the Vuvalini attitude towards men was being discussed, but have some other screencaps.

She’s the one who asks “Furiosa, what happened to your mother?”

Watch her response to Furiosa’s reply. Everyone else has started to make the gesture of remembrance but she’s still too stricken to even begin it.

Then after the moment for everyone else has passed, and Joy Smithers asks “From where did you come?” Melita is still distraught at what she’s heard and clutching her hand to her heart.

What were these two women to each other? Mary Jo Bassa has been gone for over 20 years and during that time Melita has lost her home, most of her people, and watched her society dwindle to 7 nomads. But this one death hits her (and her in particular) especially hard.
