              I really should play through the whole series one of these days. I actually spent the last couple of weeks playing ME3 MP so that sort of got the drive to play ME out of my system for now. My issue with the series is i really can't find a class in singleplayer that i like enough to play through all 3 games. I think next time i give it a try i am gonna go for shotgun infiltrator because i fucking hate the forced slowmotion in singleplayer and tactical cloak is a cool enough main power. I wish engineers had the ME3 turret as a power instead of the drone. The actual physical thing is much cooler than a floating hologram ball.

      Don't even look at it, it's worse in quite literally everything. It made ME1 easier by letting you use all weapons regardless of class and added new bugs too.

      I swear, what is it with modern devs and lighting?
      Is it because they don't go outside and don't know what the real world looks like?

        Modern engines can't do old lightning so they just strap generic everything everywhere and call it a day.
        Also it's a remaster so they're not putting their brightest devs on it and they're also not giving them any time or money since it's just a quick cash grab

        Old devs had limitations so they used tasteful baked lighting, they framed scenes and colors around this idea. When a group of retards a decade later is tasked with "remastering" the game they simply slap the brand new shiny defaul UE lighting and call it a day not realizing the old game was made with the old lighting in mind

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Actually it's kind of the opposite. You don't tend to get high contrast like that in real world unless you under light a scene... which is what competent art directors do because it looks good.
        When they remake things, they take the lighting and just apply it evenly everywhere.

      The moment Bioware shows that the next game will not have Shepard and the old cast, as its main characters, but rather only Liara and maybe some 3 minute cameos, all interest in that game is going to deflate.

          I just don't think Mike Gamble and co. understand that, and even if they do, are willing to bite the bullet and do it.
          After ME3, the franchise is in the diminishing returns place. Unless something drastic is done, it's not picking back up, and clearly they have no clue where to take this next, or what to do in general. The entire point of this game, is to give scraps to the community, so they can go back to Andromeda the next time, fully committed. I don't particularly care about Andromeda, never did, and never will. Bioware can do what they want, and get any and all the success they can, without me.

      That doesn't work for me, Eden Prime is a huge colony with 4 million people living in it; the site of the prothean beacon and the location of Javik's pod could be in two completely different locations. I'm fine with them adding ME3 assets in the background but the idea with Eden Prime in ME1 is that Jenkins tells you it's a paradise colony then you get there and it looks like literal hell because of Sovereign. Washing it with pretty colors in LE is retarded.
