Game Informer’s Mass Effect: Andromeda Game Club — Part 1

Game Informer’s Mass Effect: Andromeda Game Club — Part 1

Game Informer’s Ben Hanson, Javy Gwaltney, Elise Favis, and Ben Reeves kick off their three-part series that is taking a deep dive into BioWare’s Mass Effect: Andromeda. On this first episode, we’re talking about everything in the game up until you leave the planet Havarl. Is Ryder a better or worse protagonist than Shepherd? Is the game really as buggy as the internet believes? Who will sleep with Drax?!?

  7. Crafting gear and adding augmentation is far superior to buying gear. You get so many different boosters. For example all my guns have at least 4 mod slots. Take the time to figure it out and only craft the gear that compliments you play style.

  8. Ben Reeves needs to clue in better for part 2. He comes across as extremely clueless about the game and that doesn't work well for a commentator.

  9. I love the new choice system. I'm playing my character as a sarcastic hopeless romantic. It is by far a more nuanced system than ME3 (though ME3 is my favorite game). Can't wait to see how this affects, and effects, the future games.

  10. Having actually 100% the game the lack of understanding these reviewers show is really anoying. As its clear they have no clue half the time.

  12. I had the opposite reaction to the one at 23:00 ish when I heard both PB and Lexi sounded normal, until Lexi clears it up later. The Asari in the Trilogy that weren't from somewhere like Omega generally sounded text to speechish as I remember it, made them seem more alien. Making Addison (the tired faced lady on the nexus) into a traditional type asari would make her seem less janky.

  13. It's very clear that none of them collects all memory pieces of Alec Ryder.

  15. Love the originals but this is the best one easily maybe not fully polished, but there's just so much content and the gameplay is so much better it makes you want to explore all the tech abilities and biotics. Can't wait to do a second play through

  17. This is a really cool show. I'm definetly looking forward to the next episode. Need to play that Archon mission for myself too.
    It's really interesting to see how oipinions on different aspects in the game differ between persons. There are so many parts where I can perfectly understand the criticism , but I simply can't agree with it.

  18. Today the original trilogy is being remembered for its greatness, in spite of its many flaws.
    Whereas Andromeda is going to be remembered for its many flaws, in spite of its greatness.

  19. Scanning the environment is one of the best parts for me. I just not everyone loves exploring as much as me.

  20. It seems very odd to me that this game is the game club pick. Breath of the Wild might have been good, but potentially is too long (and not everyone has a Switch, such as myself) and fairly light on actual story? Nier would have been a neat choice, given it's different style and theme (it's on my list). And Horizon would have been a fantastic choice (I'm wrapping up an 80 hr playthrough) with great story and gameplay and solid presentation.

    But I'm guessing this was probably part of a marketing deal with EA? Maybe it wasn't. But for me, I can't imagine enjoying this game in its current state. I'm waiting for patches and a sale. I'm not concerned about spoilers, though. If the story relies solely on a twist in order to be "good" then it's probably better to find out now than until after I buy it.

  21. The similarity of aspects of the Andromeda galaxy & Milky Way is actually brought up in game. They question whether a divine power exists/divine order.

  22. Wow these people know little if anything about the game or Mass Effect at all.. and they call themselves game journalists lol

  23. I like how they don't talk about the BEST parts of the game imo. The combat, leveling and Weapon variety!!! Damn casuals.

  24. "Normal" "Normal" "Normal" "Normal" Okay, that's fine, but I'm glad that was out of the way so people knew what they were getting into.

  25. Oh god they're praising ME2's upgrade system. I'm dead.

  28. Liam irritated me too at the beginning however I did find his banter and interactions with Jaal to help his character to be much more endearing
