    The addition of crafting could be interesting but I just watched the full gameplay trailer and I'm not feelin it. I can't put a finger on the exact words for it, but something about the way the gameplay looked in that trailer makes the game look old already.

    It's all down to the details, which we won't know until we get it in our hands. Until then, it's a coin-flip.

    In general, I'll be happy to play a new Mass Effect game. Hope it turns out good.

    Just like the original Mass Effect trilogy, you'll get to make many different important decisions which will change the universe forever because, and to run with your coin-flip analogy, when it all comes to an end:

    -If it's head's, and you've made several various plot decisions, the ending will have X happen.
    -If it's tail's, and you've made several -different- plot decisions, the ending will still have X happen.

    And space dragons is really just code for krogans, and krogans is really just a code reference to blinx's avatar, and so what you really mean is that this game will have blinx or be blinx'd. In either case, that just means bad or broken. I see what you're doing here.

    I'm totally fine with that, so long as the A and B endings aren't fucking stupid. But my "coin flip" comment was more about the overall presentation, not the plot.

    I didn't play ME3 due to the bad press, then I listened to a spoiler-cast to see if it was worth my time. Once I heard about star kid, I felt justified in skipping it.

    ME1 and 2 were amazing though. As a life long Star Trek fan, I felt like they made a game that was tailored to my tastes.

    It's really too bad BioWare fumbled the plot right at the end. From a design perspective, MEIII really struck a good balance between the RPG mechanics of the first and the shooting of the second. I think they stripped away too much of the RPG-ness in MEII, but they brought it back a bit more for the sequel.

    Hopefully they've been playing a lot of Witcher IIII, because after that game, it made pretty much everyone, especially Bethesda, look like amateurs when it comes to how you handle an open world RPG.

    Honestly, Dragon is just Twonun code for penis. He's obsessed with it.

    Thank God they brought back a Mako-like vehicle!

    I know some people hated it from 1 but that's what I really liked about ME1 and the planet exploration.

    There is no controversy here. We all know fem Shepard is the real Shepard.

    I did the reverse. I thought male Shepard's voice was better suited for the Rogue playthrough, and Jennifer Hale's voice worked best for my Paragon run.

    Hale is fantastic, period.

    But in general playing like Renegade (which I did as male mostly) felt like shit. I really hope BioWare drops that system in favor of something smarter. That's a great area of game design within which to innovate, I feel: the whole thing with quantifying morality.

    ---

    Replaying favorite spots in the 3 Mass Effects currently. God, what a beautiful art style they came up with... those horizontal blu-ish/reddish flares the lights give off... gorgeous. I still dream of Ilium or Virmire (that music!) sometimes, same as how I sometimes dream of Blade Runner's L.A.

    Really hope Andromeda delivers. What's the thinking on this game? I haven't paid attention. The trailers don't strike me as particularly focused. I fear they'll fuck it up, mainly because I don't think that series did very well financially compared to its budget/marketing.
