Bioware's Fabrice Condominas talks Mass Effect 3's contentious ending and how it influenced the development of Mass Effect Andromeda.
And yet couldn't avoid even more controversy on andromeda. Bravo
did they think giving the franchise to a inexperienced team would go over well? I think they wanted to shit out one more sci-fi RPG because Star Wars was going to take that sci-fi RPG role in the future
Should never have changed the ending in ME3
Some men just wanna watch the world burn, master Wayne
I remember that ftom somewhere
Yes they should have. You invest a lot with ME to get a lame ending with no closure.
Hes talking about the original ending before the color choice, about the story of dark matter
Shouldn't let others change your vision. I know money makes them worry but it can make it worse in the end
How did Mass Effect 3 make the company hire people with worst Talent bad voice acting and worst gameplay??
Gameplay in terms of combat, is certainly better. The menu's, while needing a trim, do function once you figure out the logic. As for voice acting, I actually think they did a good job. It comes down to the dialogue however, the dialogue is more of an issue than the ones delivering the lines. Some sections are good, others, leave me wanting more, and in some cases, I just laugh at what's being said.
'Gameplay in terms of combat, is certainly better' I mean if you are talking about the mechanics and amount of things you can do, then I agree with you, but if you are talking about the actual combat encounters and enemy AI, I think they are both on the bad side. I am 22 hours in, and am still waiting for the combat to actually click and be fun. It all just feels like running through the motions so far. I don't think the average soundtrack helps either.
*Bioware meeting* Producer 1: ME3 was awful, how do we fix this in andromeda? Producer 2: ... We make ME3 look like a masterpiece in comparison. Producer 1: Genius.
Bio ware should have stuck with their guns with the Mass effect 3 ending. Any Bioware fan that plays their games should make a point to notice that Bioware uses a red herring approach to their games and the themessage in said games. It's not their fault if some of the stuff goes right over fans heads. They put the clues, but people don't see them. Heck, I didn't even see what I was walking into with 3's ending.
Technically it was a red, blue or green herring xD
Bioware deflecting and damage-controlling as hard as they can!
You know what to do EA. You've done it many times before.
Despite what happened with ME3 and the ending, Bioware and EA clearly didn't learn anything, or maybe this was a deliberate FU to the fans who complained, and knowing that some other fans will still buy the game because of the name and defend it.
