    the fps take a hit during the conversations / cutscenes whenever the camera changes to a different angle or a different scene...it's like a 5-6fps hit but noticeable.

    anyone seeing similar?

    Got a couple of hours in tonight and really enjoyed it.

    Some of the unnecessary interplanetary animations need to be cut, the script and animations are occasionally fucked but having fun :)

    It will take ages for me to download 43gb on my 3mbps connection. Sigh.

    Thanks for the offer. It's too far for me to drive though.

    Can I copy anyone's Mass Effect Andromeda game folder so i can copy into my Origin folder?

    Managed to squeeze in a few hours last night.

    Combat is fun and the game is reasonable pretty.

    They rush the story introduction a bit, but its interesting enough to keep me going. Some of the conversation animations are a bit wonky, but on the whole they do the job.

    I'm having fun so far and looking forward to getting back into it tonight.

    Dropped more hours than I should of into the game yesterday.
    I found it good, the story is there, came across a few annoying bugs like when the game would auto select the dialog options for you, but restarting the game fixed it.
    Had one graphical glitch in the Kett tower after blowing up the lading pads, the explosion was black, kinda annoying but I pushed through.

    I think the massive nerdrage and press negativity has made me more open to liking the game - negative press tends to do that to me.

    Anyway logged in last night, it had been a fucking shit day for personal reasons and even though I had already played 10 hours I found last night to be just like my old times with ME, relaxing and fun. I unlocked the first base on Eos and logged off.

    I think I'm really going to enjoy this, I'm an admitted space junkie and ME really hits the sweet spot.

    Cannot wait to discover new worlds.

    This game is seriously unoptimised and unstable. Even after turning the graphics settings down from what it auto-detected, it's extremely choppy and it regularly becomes completely unresponsive in the Skills screen.

    This was a concern of mine too, as I always try to model the character after myself. I was going to leave the sister default, But ended up clicking the customise button so I didn't look adopted. And as most ppl have noticed, the default custom look is Asian. I assume a large percentage of people that click that custom button are bored of Captain Whitey McPaleface.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Big Daddy Ryder in my game, He kinda looked Native American, but definitely not white.

    The diversity of the crew, with the addition of "my family members" and the british accents is a welcome change. Compared to Team America in space.


    Got ME3 & DAI loot boxes

    I came from playing ARK: Survival Evolved to this...

    Buttery smooth and no crashes at all. 1440P on GTX980. Defaults were High. Ultra was a bit too much. But manged to customise the settings to keep ultra textures

    pretty much the same for me here same res and GPU.

    I'd have expected the 980Ti would be a bit better.
