Here is a comparison between the new default Sara Ryder Character model that is improved in the latest patch for Mass Effect Andromeda.
If EA thinks they can salvage this pile of crap by releasing some bullshots featuring improved facial textures, they've got another thing coming. Don't be fooled, people.
Exaggeration, the game is not bad it's just buggy, they absolutely can fix it with patches. People who don't like buggy games should totally avoid it for now but once it's been patched up there is no reason not to have some fun with this game.
It's improve a lot. I hate to say this, but thank you, Bioware. For listening the community. Even I know the game should have delay in the first place, but i'm glad Bioware are listening.
Agreed. I haven't played it yet, but I've watched enough of it online and it looks really good. Most of what I've read about the game is better then the other Mass Effects besides its story and those bugs. So I'm ok with buying it later on.
" People who don't like buggy games" ? Damn. I mean who the fuck does?
"Damn. I mean who the fuck does?" Well I've played loads of beta tests and I've gotten used to playing unfinished games, games like Ark and Subnautica for example were broken as hell when they first went into early access but were still loads of fun.
Elimin8, I'd say no one but then I'd be lying. Myself and a few others keep buying Bethesda games for some reason.
They cannot fix how boring it is. Bland and uninteresting. It is also buggy with poor animations. And so few enemies. And ridiculous forced mini-cutscenes to go everywhere. I'm now at 72 hours and I don't remember much. Zelda and Horizon, however, those will stick with me for a lifetime. And Persona seems to be just as good as Zelda and Horizon. Mass Effect was a MASSIVE LETDOWN.
Mass Effect Andromeda is an awesome game despite its initial bugs. I'm enjoying it just as much as the previous titles tbh.
Then I must be a terrible gamer, because I really enjoyed that pile of crap? :P
I haven't bought it yet but I will. Just don't have the time to invest in another rpg yet. Just finished H:ZD.
I know right?!?! I enjoy this game more than Bukake on Pandamovies.
You haven't got a clue.
lol yes. Game has issues, they need to fix it. Don't be fooled by them trying to fix it. lol
Agreed this game is crap I need to file it away under crap learn from it and make the next game awesome!
Nope. It's far from being crap.
Game isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Gameplay itself is great. Weird facial animations sometimes, but that's mainly with the chic. Have not noticed this with the dude much. It really does not take away from the gameplay at all.
Have you even played the game or are you just talking trash about it because you've seen vids on the bugs? Overall the game is still pretty good and the bugs barely take away from the experience. When the bugs hit they do hit but definitely not enough to take away from all the good this game has.
I highly doubt this guy even played the the game...
@Stevonidas "If EA thinks they can salvage this pile of crap by releasing some bullshots featuring improved facial textures, they've got another thing coming." you sound like those who people talk about on user reviews for metacritic where the last call of duty was rated a 0. you guys are such extremists where there is no middle of the road, either a game is fantastic or it sucks.
Exactly. How these people think and behave is simply ridiculous.
This game is amazing and I am pretty harsh in games. The more I play the more I love it. Unlike the previous games, this game opens up and allows you to actually feel like a space explorer. More Star Trek than Star Wars, it blends the rpg elements with the action combat perfectly. Yeah, it's rough with human faces but they are working in it. To any ME fan, you MUST play this!
To OP..You're whats wrong with gaming... GTFO!
Fallout and other Bethesda games have many more issues than this game... Graphics, facial animations, textures, etc. The backlash for this game is ridiculous.
Game still has a fuck ton of bugs. And Yes people are going to be fooled...
Well, I'm gonna buy the game when is fully patched, this is why you don't do preorders.
Yeah, I can still wait quite some time to buy this. Right now, my time is consumed by HZD and then it will be onto Persona 5.
What about Male Ryder or do they think Male Ryder doesn't have any issues?
Female Ryder had more issues that Male Ryder. It's why so many gifs and webms focus on her.
my best friend’s ex-wife makes Bucks75/hr on the laptop. She has been unemployed for eight months but last month her income with big fat bonus was over Bucks9000 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site..... +_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+ www.biz40.com
Better, but she is still ugly. Certainly an improvement though.
It is better though. Why didn't they just use the voice actresses likeness? Face mocap and all. Because she's an attractive woman? I hope not, that's the dumbest reason I have heard so far. I hope it's because they outsourced the animation, which is still shitty but less crazy. Why even bother making games at that point though? Outsourcing your characters in a character driven game lol.
Yeah there was an interview about a week ago with the animators that confirmed the character animations were all outsourced to a cheaper studio because EA wanted the team to focus on the 'important' stuff like locations and ship design. That's why there's such a difference between the backgrounds and ships (which look great), and the people (which....don't).
Yeah I heard some of that. Hopefully the official statement is true. Maybe bioware should just get outsourced lol. They could make great landscapes all day so developers can focus on the characters and gameplay.
From the screenshots, it looks like a massive improvement. The eyes are important so them fixing it/tweaking it, does a lot.
Any game company that is looking to fix there issues rather than just leaving them out to dry is a good thing. Yes, there most definitely are bugs in the game and it feels like the game was taken out of the oven before it was done but I'm glad Bioware is working on this.
they refused to fix some major issues in Dragon Age: Origins on PS3, and I haven't purchased a single Bioware game since. They took to blaming the HW rather than improving their skills with the PS3's architecture.
Well damn you missed really good game, im not buying this till its 30$ idc how long will it take. But still buying it
I'm sure I didn't.
That is great to here. NECK DEEP IN GAMES right now so its going to have to wait for a few months. Hope they keep fixing it.
Does anyone use defaults? Just curious why they waste their resources on the most worthless part of the game.
Yep, couldn't make a custom with white skin as they don't have the option unless you pick a pre made head and then you can't fully customize it. So I picked default Scott.
Click the article, it shows custom character improvements and even a couple NPCs
The eyes are night and day difference. If it could be done so easily in a few weeks then why was it shipped like that? I'm thinking they had EA help lol. They should have left the "face is tired" chick as is though, as a testament to good humor. I'm about to jump back in soon and if it's better then good for them. Thanks for at least trying lol.
I'll leave this here.... http://i209.photobucket.com...
"Fix the facial expressions, toss the rest."
oh my god now Bioware is pandering to the sniffling cry babies of this generation! the models were more than perfect and then you had to whine and complain! I am having a blast with this game and see no reason to patch it! thanks, alot idiots for whining and crying in the first place, hopefully, your opinion won't matter soon!
While I agree about the internet reaction being hysterical and blown out of proportion the animation still deserved critics. https://mobile.twitter.com/... Better now
No, the game did have issues and it's good they are fixing them. The massive exaggeration and hate directed at this game is still absurd though.
You're an idiot
You sound like a huge crybaby, read your post, your whining and complaining. You see no reason to patch it? LOL Ok there, not including weird animation youtube is full of vids of glitches in this game. Ignorance is bliss I guess, keep having a "blast" next time you go to Chuck E Cheese, have an extra slice on me buddeh
It's good, definitely an improvement. Hope you keep working on it. However, current state is not enough to convince me to purchase. I'll play it when it's ready for release.
I don't see a difference, Sara Ryder still looks like Shrek when she is supposed to look like the model who played her.
I agree. I don't know what people are seeing here that makes them say things like "it's a massive improvement". It's anything but a massive improvement. They still look odd.
Forget about fixing Sara's eyes, I want a patch for her thighs.....not thick enough.
On ps4 pro after patch 1.05 i see boost in graphics setting and performance.
No waiting for me.. this will be my first 2017 game and happy about it :3
My party members now banter so I can finally play, I'm happy so far.
I'm just glad I'll be playing this game in half a year or so when it's fixed and the price reduced... But I also feel for the team behind Andromeda. It's a new team that never worked on such a big project/franchise and they may have been a bit overwhelmed.
I don't use default anyone. Will this patch help my character out? By the way is there a way to change some facial features once you start the game proper?
she looks the same to me.
I really don't know why this keeps happening in AAA publishing, EA pushes the release of a game, it releases buggy, backlash ensues, devs reputation gets hurt, a week later its much improved with a patch, so why risk all of this and why not just release the game a week later when the game is patch to where its now Every fkn time, smh
I might get this game next year after its actually ready for release.
and probably with all DLC.
EA should have just delayed this game it clearly would have needed at least a few months more development time and it sure would be way better reviewed and would have not get that much hate.
I need this game to be finished before I buy it. And yes I've beaten me 1 and 2 still working on 3, so I am a fan but I will not buy unfinished trash. And good lord Sara Ryder makes me physically sick to look at.
Finally good news. Looks like I can start playing in 2-3 months when they've addressed more of their checklist
Anybody taking damage after using boost? After the Patch I can no longer use it without loosing health
