I want to love this, but after the trial I am i indifferent.

I hope it comes through well, reviews may sway me to a day one purchase.

Otherwise it will be wait for a sale.

Fantastic OT. Love the title.

Thanks for not making it some memey bullshit.

Real excited based on my ten hour trial. Yup, there's some jank, but the mechanics seem very sound. Good reward loops for exploration, good vehicle, good combat. More than enough to keep me entertained.

Let's not.

Did you play the trial yourself? Because it still felt great to me.

Correct. EA has also indicated that they will take no action against people who do so, but they will not provide support if stuff goes wrong.

I only personally experienced one bug in the trial, which was resolved by a quick reload.

Last I checked, the last guy who did a tally of the general impressions after the trial, it ended up being largely positive.

I'm excited to play still despite everything from this past week. We finished our playthrough of Mass Effect 1 and 2 to get in the spirit and looks like I may have enough time to power through Mass Effect 3 in the meantime. Just discovered a whole lot of awesome mods for it.

Yeah, turns out it's not actually a disaster when you're playing the game! Bioware's recent marketing videos have been so terrible, but fortunately the actual game does not suffer too much from that. When you get down to it, it really is a new Mass Effect that is great fun to play and explore.

Had a ton of fun with the trial. The facial animations are well documented, but grandparents wise it's a Mass Effect game 100%

Yup. Didn't have a single bug in my entire ten hour trial. I saw the backwards gun thing, obviously, but that's it.

I'm really excited to play it. I doubt it'll be bug free for the whole 60 or whatever hours, but that's every open world game.

Nice OT.

I've enjoyed what I've played so far on EA Access, and can't wait to jump in with no restrictions.

It feels like Mass Effect, which was my biggest worry prior to playing it. There's a few references to the history of the franchise, but the best homage I've come across is the nod to Shepard's weird smiles and animations. Really nice of Bioware to remind us at every oppporunity.

Only joking.

I won't mention specifics out of respect for those wanting to go in blind, but from the first few hours I've played, there are enough questions raised, enough mysteries that need solving and an interesting enough situation that we find ourselves in, that I'm really looking forward to pulling at the threads to see where it goes.

At the moment I've halted my progression on Access, purely because I don't want to get halfway through a mission and be cock-blocked. I'll probably pick it up Wednesday night (EU release for me) and get the ball rolling on my next objective.

I just hope there's awkward dancing.

Superb OT guys!! Just gotta wait for my deluxe to arrive Tuesday and fire it up on the Pro.

I did mess around earlier more on the Xbox trial and found the skins for the Nomad as well got the Pathfinder armor which looks great. Other than that I just visited the systems.

I can't be the only one to find a cool planet, Nexus or the black hole and exit the galaxy map just so I can view it all outside the Tempest windows, right? Lol

Played 10 hours with no bugs. Unless you're classifying the facial animations as bugs.

It's been a rocky road for me in the run up to this game. I'm a massive fan of the original trilogy, but absolutely nothing about this game was doing it for me until the launch trailer hit. Then I played the trial and loved it. Wasn't sold on the prologue but once the game opens up it really recaptures that same Mass Effect vibe.

And there's not enough animation jank in the world to tarnish that.

Can't wait for Thursday (booooo EU release date).

The trial gave me hope it was worth the wait despite some technical issues and I didn't even have time to visit the Tempest!
