Hopefully they add the Krogan romance option in this one. The people demand it.

And by people, I'm mainly referring to myself. We all have our preferences. Don't judge.

Not necessary, if you got the happy everyone loves you ending, you Shepard under a pile of rubble and (s)he stars moving a little.

Though.. I think I remember reading somewhere that the new game was gonna take place sometime during the original trilogy, only you play someone else cuz Shepard’s story has been told or something like that.

This could be a message Shepherd pre-recorded before he went to the final battle. Doesn't necessarily mean that he survived.

In the majority of the game endings, people play Shepherd, not Femshep I don't think majority matters much.

After playing through the whole series twice, first as DudeShep then as FemShep, I have to agree that Jennifer Hale had the far better performance.

According to things I've read/heard this is supposed to be either hundreds or close to a hundred or so years after the last Mass Effect - hence the jumping to a new galaxy.

Although, for being such a massive change in timeframe, the trailer weapons and armor look really similar to the first trilogy's gear.

When ME3 came out, I took a week off so I could play it. Looking back on that with the wisdom of some time, that was a great call, and I'm going to do it again when ME:A comes out.

I'm just sad there won't be Jennifer Hale.

That's not really a huge deal. A lot of the weapons/armor present in Mass Effect was actually considered old, but kept around because it was still highly effective.

On another note from what I've seen/heard?
The ship we saw is not the Normandy's replacement. It's the Citadel's replacement(in that it will serve as your central "hub" in Andromeda), and has manufacturing and other facilities onboard.

They'll likely just cast her in a different role. So she probably won't be the lead, but I expect she'll voice someone notable in the game.

Um, yeah...

I doubt that. She's currently voicing Sarah Palmer in the "Halo" series, which she specified in an interview awhile back that she only accepted because her involvement with the Mass Effect series was basically at an end.

She has a large range, she will probably turn up in some various voices anyhow.

Mainly because I'm a fanboy and really want it, I wonder if they'll find a way to include a way for your previous ME decisions to make their way into Andromeda - however small they may have been.

But then I think about the choices that involved the death of the Krogan race, the Quarians or the Geth and I begin to find reasons for Bioware to find a way to include them.

On a more wishlist-ish sort of bit, I hope they keep the weapon modifications they included in 3 (maybe flesh them out more), maybe include a weapon or armor forging option (akin to Inquisition). Here's hoping for an option to upgrade your ship with various things both cosmetic and utility.

So how is bioware going to deal with the outcomes of previous games? Will there be geth or quarians? Will the Krogans be cured of the genophage? Is everyone a cyborg or are all the machines dead?

I only played the Mass Effect series because someone said that Jennifer Hale did an excellent performance. They were right about that.

Still need to finish the second games suicide mission, and then get around to starting the third. But I got upset when I realised that I never ran into Shepards biggest fan.

Maybe Andromeda is about him......

If you don't meet him in the citadel in ME1, he'll never appear in the other two games.

And if you do meet him, he'll show a gun in your face in ME 2 no matter how nice you were to him in ME. Aaah, the Mass Effect series and its fantastic branching storyline...

To be honest. How many thousands of different conversations and animations would they have to do in order to cover all the possible choices from the first to the second game, let alone keeping it through all three.

Yeah, I don't blame them. Heck, I'm paragon to the end, and having that situation blow up in my face like that despite me being nice was actually pretty funny.

Known bug. The data bit in the first game that was supposed to track whether you were mean or nice to that guy didn't function properly, and always indicated that you were a jerk to him.


As for the storyline from the first three games -

Since it takes place in a different galaxy, Bioware can negate the effects of most of your previous choices by having the colony ship leave Earth before the Reapers arrive. Details such as individuals who survived won't matter, and species-altering decisions (Geth, Krogan fertility) won't be made until after the mission has left the Milky Way Galaxy.

Yes, I get the idea it'll not involve the ME2 or 3 story that much.

Good faith is a prerequisite for civility. In its absence, "Go Feth Yourself" is not only an acceptable response, it is the only appropriate response and, really, the only possible response. Social media isn’t characterized by rampant incivility because people have bad manners. It looks like that because epidemic bad faith makes nicer manners impossible. So stop arguing in bad faith, or don't be surprised when people tell you to go feth yourself.
