    EA keeps ruining everything. Studios, franchises. They'll be back on that list of worst companies soon.

    I started playing Andromeda
    so far I have been enjoying the gameplay and I haven't seen anything that caused anger against the game.

    I'm pretty sure they've fixed most of the things by now. I'm curious to see what has changed since I played it.

    I need to pick it up again. Maybe after AC.

    I am noticing the criticism of the checkpoint save though.

    It is annoying for sure, specially playing hardcore difficulty.
    In inquisition the save checkpoint system is less of a problem because the gameplay is different.

    I reached the Nexus and I am noticing the the parts where the game got criticized for
    * Dialogue
    * Facial animations
    * a lot of clones

    Game characters don't seem that interesting and you don't care for them.
    The game doesn't draw you in like the original triology did

    The Kett in Andromeda is a very boring enemy design wise
    The Geth was a superior/interesting enemy to face in my opinion.

    I feel I am just playing this game to regain interest but is not happening, I am going to throw in the towel for now and focus on more interesting games like Wolfenstein, Dishonored, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Batman Arkham City, just to name a few of the games I have in my backlog

    Do you mean Arkham Knight? Arkham City isn't worth it anymore.

    Oh, right!
    Yes, I meant Arkham Knight; I remembered the newest game has the Batmobile and somehow thought the name had City since you need a big place to drive it :lol:

    Regarding Andromeda
    I don't like the combat system, it is broken.
    You cannot control your team mates abilities nor yours since there is no pause feature like previous ME games or like Inquisition

    Decided to give Andromeda another shot.
    Game has it flaws but I starting to like it as I get more deeper in the story.

    at the moment I am stuck on a side mission in Harvarl, where I reach the sages on a tall structure.
    I reached the top but now I have now idea how to get down :lol:

    I heard that, despite its flaws, it has some really great side missions.

    Yeah, the missions in Harvarl for the Angara alien race have been lots of fun.

    You only face Remnant enemies, other Angarans and planet's wild life, best of all no Kett.
    Maybe the Kett get more interesting to combat on later missions but so far they are meh.

    The Remnant enemies are the stars in this game

    They put way too many side quests in Andromeda; most of them are meaningless.
    Is like every NPC has a mission for you :lol:

    They should have focused on the core game and a handful of side missions
    Game is plagued by bugs, enemies getting stuck inside walls etc
    Side mission ask to clear the Kett base, which I did, but when I go back the Kett just respawn

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to implement save checkpoint too far apart in main missions at Bioware is a moron.
    When doing the "Remove The Heart" side mission in Voeld, I died multiple times when I was close to completing the mission; only for the game to return you way back :mad:

    needless to say, I gave up and lowered the difficulty to the easiest, Narrative, just to complete it.

    That's one of my problems with the game as well. Last time I played, before the first big patch, I also turned down the difficulty.

    I'll probably keep it on something easy or medium hard when I pick the game up again.

    Yeah, that's the only way to bypass the checkpoint system when one gets stuck.
    for all the drawbacks this game has, the game is enjoyable once you get past the initial missions.

    The best part of the game so far is the Angara civilization and their planets like Aya.
