I didn't actually mind the exchange in the OP. In a game that constantly attains pure cringe, scenes of intentional cringe can come off as kind of endearing. Too bad the rest of the thread has revealed yet more unforgivable jank and unintentional cringe.
Also, not sure what your angle is here HumanAbyss, you seem to be in every MEA thread posting what amounts to "yeah but guys I don't think the other mass effect games were great either"
It's really weird because SWTOR is made by bioware and their stories in the recent expansions have been really nice and well acted and animated, a major step up from SWTOR's base game cinematically
then you see this shit.
Did all the good people jump ship to work on star wars?
Or maybe the star wars team isn't even bioware and it just says Bioware so people can recognize the KOTOR ties easier
Is he still writing it? Because if so I'd like to commend him for a job well done on KOTFE and KOTET. Really enjoyed them.
Aha, he also wrote the original 2 ME's and KOTOR.
This explains why I've heard about a major writing quality drop after 2
SWTOR is really well produced but I won't lie their model is shit and they're pissing off their community.
Recently they added a new gear system at end game where there's like 300 fucking levels of bullshit grind that may give you some new gear, and the only way to earn the points for these levels and to be allowed to wear the gear is to be subscribed so its effectively become a sub only game again for any serious players.
They also recently announced they were going to add 100 more levels and phrased the announcement in a way that made it sound like they thought people would be excited about it. They got torn to shreds in comments in minutes.
These aren't very good days for Bioware no matter which branch
I almost feel bad paying for a subscription for SWOTOR because of how much Bioware has pissed me off after ME2(YES, even ME2 annoys me). I even bought DA:I which, while better than DA2(not that that was a very high bar)lost my interest relatively quickly.
The thing that really annoys me that bioware started was the fad for RPG's with dialog options to truncate the selections into like 5 words MAX instead of what your character would actually say like in KOTOR or Deus Ex for example. This pisses me off to no end and pretty much makes it so good and asshole dialog options have to be color coded because you wouldn't be able to tell their tone otherwise.
In KOTOR you knew exactly what the outcome would be when picking an option(a vast majority of the time anyway)because you were reading exactly what would be 'said'. You knew what the tone of something was because you could actually fuckin read it.
It was really bad in ME3 where huge speeches were reduced to 3-5 words on you "list" of selections. There were a couple were the tone of what was actually said by Shepard just didn't match with what the selections seemed to imply.
I miss the days of getting a list of options to pick from where what is displayed is what the other characters hear.
Me on the right watching these.
ME1/2 had awkward dialogue that was actually well written and felt natural-awkward - the Garrus/femshep romance for example. This just makes me feel like I'm watching 1980s animatronics act out My Immortal
Well, at least there's actual breasts.
There's a surprise.
I love how the dialogues fits them very well ironically like how that one character said her face is tired with that blank facial expression in the other video
So meanwhile another two romance scenes for Sara surfaced, the long-awaited Suvi lesbian hotness scene and Liam's boring shirtless (heeeeeey Jakob, I almost forgot about you, buddy) straight thing. And I'm not posting them because disappointment They're easily enough found on Youtube if anyone wants to confirm it, I just kinda don't feel like they're worth reopening the tabs.
Bioware continues with its proud tradition of having a default romance option for each gender. Want to pick anyone else, well no interesting scene for you. You chose poorly, try again next time.
How do you look at something like this and say "yep, let's release it"?
what kind of AAA game is this
as with everything that gets massively complained about, i really thought people were just exaggerating.
but jesus fucking christ the animation actually is completely awful, the full-body motion is hilariously bad and with the facial animations its so obvious they didnt even fucking try, femryder looks like she's sniffing a nasty turd 24/7 and manryder is dead inside 24/7, not to mention how they all try to recreate Pingu's noot noot every time they speak.
how the fuck does something like this get released in this day and age? from a non-indie developer? especially after all that ''development time''? the fuck is wrong with bioware?
ME1 and 2 weren't perfect but they were pretty good one time experiences, not ever buying this, a few bad animations wouldn't bother me but it seems like every single animation is fucked, only way i'll ever play this is if i get it for free and even then i'd probably physically cringe at how bad the animation and writing is.
This scene looked like it came straight out of fucking alpha or something. It looks so unpolished and unfinished.
Made a joke, spoiler tagged it, realized it might not be good enough just tagging it.
Very diverse team there.
