    I think more enemy variety instead of using the same groups over and over would make their encounters more enjoyable.

    And if all three mercenary groups practically behave the same then what's the point in having different groups? What difference would it make if they were all made to be a part of one group, such as CAT6 from ME3's Citadel DLC?

    Blood Pack is fine I guess since the krogan aren't really known for much else besides brute strength and they aren't encountered much compared to the other two. Perhaps just get rid of the vorcha and have all members be krogan. That would make a tough group to fight given how strong krogan are.

    Eclipse should be made up exclusively of Asari that fight with biotics and have technology to enhance them and combat droids to reinforce them.

    Blue Suns should be professional soldiers that utilize combat tactics from different races. Less hi-tech and no biotics but dangerous to take on due to the experience of their members and the varying combat techniques from each race.

    TL;DR these three groups don't really add anything other than "mercenaries trying to kill you". They all practically fight the same way.

    Better as in better than the trilogy or better than it's perceived currently?

    This woman basically summarizes my opinion better than I can.

    I think you should keep in mind that it's still 1. April.

    Wow...

    A comic relief mod parodying ME:A, IN FALLOUT 4, is a better game.

    Oh, if only Bioware actually supported modding with their turds ... than you wouldn't be stuck with those shitty faces for ever.

    The only thing unpopular here is the assertion that both things are mutually exclusive.

  9. Oi Walpknut you have 5000 likes already (and given 250 lmao), shall we throw a party?

    Anyhow, yeah. You can have VERY justified variants of "the same enemies". Even Koopas, Goombas and Lakitus from Super Mario are "the same" but mean wholly different things in gameplay.

    I have come to dislike Andromeda more and more.

    Current rating 6/10 and thats being generous. Fuck you bioware I want mass effect 1-3 back.

    Fuck ill admit I actually really enjoyed fallout 4 despite its numerous mis steps. It would easily be an 8/10. My disappointment with it stemmed from being a long time fan not that i personally felt it had issues as a AAA rpg-ish open world game.

    Hopefully after today I will be done with this mess of a game.

    Let me guess, the ending of Andromeda was just A and B instead of A B C.

    Nah. Just option A with some minor differences (certain characters live or die). ME:A is ME:1 in terms of ending.

    I'm on the Krogan planet and I've decided to finish up the Loyalty Quests and then the game itself. It was really really enjoyable but it's a big game and I'm ready for the end.

    BioWare have released a patch to fix a lot of issues, such as the faces. The writing's still crap though.

    That character looks like a generic base model that they never got around to customizing.

    "To whom, and your goddamn father" Who the fuck writes like this?

    "I'm not your new mother if that's what you're asking-"

    "No one's a Pathfinder until they've pathfound something."

    "-we may as well be 600 years dead."

    Pinnacle of great writing here.

    Even for Bioware that's pretty shitty writting...
