Well for one it's confusing. We've had discussion threads since Cog's inception. And now all of sudden we are hanging out in the news section.

Reading/posting in one place of a forum or another makes no difference to me. Do as you please though. We had a conversation going on in there, and we continued as such.

There aren't enough people playing this game on CoG to warrant two discussion threads, the current thread people are using is fine.

Quite a few, the multiplayer is fun and I've sunk enough hours into it to justify at least 40$ so far. The single player animations are like the bioware dev said raw animation half the time but if you put on your suspension of disbelief glasses that you had to put on back in the 80's/90's it's for conversation it's liveable.

I've been enjoying myself so far as well. While its disappointing you can't control your teammates anymore than issuing move commands and who to attack, the addition of profiles and favorites means you can kind of switch up your styles on the fly depending on the situation.

To counter this I think I might try playing with teammates that have primer abilities, then set myself up for detonator abilities. Might be easier to rely on myself to finish combos than my teammates, but I haven't had enough time to experiment with this yet.

Here's Wack Ryder after about 5 different attempts to make someone that looked half decent:

It was the only one that I found to look half decent. I wanted the shaved head look, but for some reason when you chose that hair but wanted facial hair, it looked like Ryder was recovering from cancer with spotty hair growth.

Anyone else find it stupid you can't use charge on enemies that Peebee has used Pull on? That seems like it would be an awesome combo, but every time she uses it I get an invalid target message when I try to use charge.

I'm having a good time. Made it to my 4th(?) world. I like that the MP is basically a rehash of ME3's without the whole 'linking it to the best endings' thing.

I do confess I'm a bit disappointed in the plot. I believe they could have made a compelling story with just the regular challenges of colonization.

I finished it and have 3 hot-takes: Male Ryder's VA is much better than Fem Ryder's, I hate moving from planet to planet because of all the "cutscenes", and all the female romance interests have ridiculous badonkadonks.

The cut scenes between planets is fucking terrible.

Krogans are the shit.

I want an ME game where the main character can be any of the races. They created such a cool world of aliens, let me be one!

I absolutely love every Krogan party member I've had in all of the Mass Effect series. They're all hysterical when they fight.

The worst part is you just wanna get on your ship not leave the planet but you gotta leave the planet to get on your ship.

ME:A is a lot like the PS3: full of unrealized potential. However, I'm getting this sinking feeling that, unlike the PS3, most of that potential will go unrealized.

They really missed out on some great story opportunities.
