    OK, just reverted to an old save and it loaded nicely....hopefully it stays that way.

    Still ploughing through... 85 hours and 46%, pretty much exploring every nook and cranny as I go. Crazy ass fight today taking down an architect on insanity. Good times :thumbup:

    Also loving the space hamster :D

    Having mature fun doing doughnuts in the nomad.

    anyone notice Origin and your save file have wildly different playtimes?

    My Origin playtime is 95 hours and save file says 85, not even sure which one is correct.

    Origin just tracks the time the app is open, save file will reflect actual game time probably minus time spent in load screens

    that makes no sense, there's no way I had it open but not playing for 10 hours, unless downloading somehow counts.

    Add up all the time you've spent in loading screens and level up/point spending menus maybe?

    hardly any time is spend in loading screens, if menus and levelling up screens are split out that'd make sense - but imo at least spending time in those screens IS playing the game. Just a weird thing, does anyone else find that Origin vs Save time is that far apart?

    Wasn't there an issue with the origin subscriber 10hr test time where they game ran in the background even when closed?

    I'm guessing some shenanigans happening from that or even the final release early on till it was patched out

    Yeaj its the trial time added. Mines the same coz when Andromeda released i started a new save. So save hours will be less than total hours.

    Also Origin takes years to sync coz it uploads all your saves. I presume anyway. I checked my folder and its something like 31mb

    yeah after a day playing the syncing takes a bit.

    mind you steam is probably worse at that.

    Thankfully I got NBN connected a few weeks ago. On a 100/40 plan but only getting about 70/30 max. Uploading saves onto the net is a lot better than when I was on ADSL 8/0.4 lol :lol:

    Went Sloane, I just didn't trust Reyes. I thought saving the Krogan was the easy decision, the Pathfinder makes the tough calls I'm not here to baby other Pathfinders. They know the consequences of their decisions and act accordingly. All the Ark quests were pretty good overall and really well written I thought.

    After doing the end game stuff and loyalty missions I'm prepared to up my rating to an 8.5/10 from a 7.

    When the game hits it's stride I think it's worthy of the ME title - it's when it want's me to do all the go here, go there, collect 5 of these boring side stuff that it gets annoying. But most RPG's have that, so I accept it.

    Also I hated the "tasks" the ones I didn't do are my 3% of leftover content after finishing. I feel like I might look up some maps and just go to the locations that way. I had the same type of shit leftover in Dragon Age Inquisition.

    How full did everyone's model cabinet/wall thing get? I think I'm missing maybe 4 or 5 now.

    Also did anyone get a different ME original character in Alec Ryders office on the voice recordings? Just wondering, my game had Liara.

    Yeh I think I'm the same. Might go and find them.
    And mine had Liara too.

    I find the final boss fight lame actually.
    I really wanted to pop a few shots in the Archon's face. But in the end you just fight another Architect. Felt kinda anti-climatic.

    yeah a little anti-climatic in that regard - also you barely fight the Architect.
    Wondering what DLC will be coming and where the sequel will go. Hoping for a nice new trilogy.

    Was she also in your final recording from Ryder's dad?

    I also thought it was a good and interesting choice getting the player to play as the other Ryder - but wish they'd had more of these sections.

    Can't remember the final recording. Can check it tonight. I assume it would be. I also think she could be the benefactor too. It's either her or the Illusive Man.

    Well Im on holiday for the next week so I thought I should arrange something to do. Took about 9hrs but I downloaded it overnight mostly during off peak.

    Just into the first mission now. :thumbup:

    If you go offline origin does not track game time too . My save file says 85 hours, origin is about twenty hours lesser
