ot3: play the game

Regarding all the drama surrounding ME:A...

BEFORE YOU COMMENT, LET IT BE KNOWN THAT MY POST HAS OFFENDED PEOPLE. SKIP AND/OR BLOCK IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE. Don’t wanna upset anymore people today

I get it. Your upset. I can sympathize. Honestly, I can. Bioware could have made every character bisexual, they did that it Dragon Age 2! But that’s a little unrealistic?

Like out of all the people that came to andromeda PLUS what’s left of the Angaras, some of the people you get on your squad/crew/whatever aren’t interested in your gender?

Like, Sara Ryder player here, hit on Gil and he was like “umm no thx” ouch that sucked, lemme try another! Lexi “no thx” oh well shucks, that only stings a lot.

I understand that when it comes to m!ryder’s wanting a male love interest, there’s not much to choose from, and that honestly sucks. You have every right to be upset. You can’t be your true self in a game that is like an extension of you.

But straight up harassing developers and voice actors or anyone that has come in contact with the game is not right! They pour their hearts and souls into this game for you, add little things that you like FOR YOU, and you throw it right back at them. “THIS GAME SUCKS BECAUSE I CANT BANG THE SQUID CAT!” That’s not even what the game is about! It’s just an added bonus, an after thought. You can go through this entire game series without screwing a single person!

TL;DR:: I’m not bashing people for wanting representation. I’d want that too. I’m not saying you don’t have the right to be upset. By all means, do. All I’m trying to get at is respect. Respect for the company, for the people working in that company, for the game that is pretty much their baby! Stop the harassment. If a dev gets touchy about it, wouldn’t you if you were jabbed endlessly about it?

Enjoy the game for the story, the lore, the adventure! Romance is great, but I value the friendships I develop. I fall in love with the characters. These are my friends, my family.

I hope you can see it that way too.

Enjoy Andromeda!

(Editx2: sieve-owl made a lot of good points in their replies. I suggest people read them as well)

On this day in music history: September 20, 1980 - “The Game”, the fifth album by Queen hits #1 on the Billboard Top 200 for 5 weeks, also peaking at #8 on the R&B album chart on October 4, 1980. Produced by Queen and Reinhold Mack, it is recorded at Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany from June - July 1979 and February - May 1980. Issued as the follow up to their previous album “Jazz”, it differs noticeably from their previous album sporting a more stripped down pop/rock sound. Recording in Germany at producer Giorgio Moroder’s Musicland Studios, as well as working with engineer/co-producer Mack contributes to the bands change in musical approach. Queen breaks with their “no synthesizers” credo when they utilize an Oberheim OB-X on the album. It is well received by fans and critics alike upon its release, and goes on to become their most successful album. It spins off three singles including “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” (#1 Pop) and “Another One Bites The Dust” (#1 Pop, #2 R&B). Original vinyl pressings of the album feature the album cover art with an aluminized foil finish. The expensive printing process is discontinued after the initial press run of the LP, switching to a flat grey ink finish to save on manufacturing costs. “The Game” is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

i love this game, but sometimes digging up all the guides and juggling tabs is stressful.

plus, i’ve lost my backups of all my old builds, so i have to start over. :(((
