    Finished Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (Jack the Ripper DLC was very good. Evie is bestest)
    Finished Mass Effect: Andromeda (Everyone bashed the shit out of this game, ignore them)

    97 hours in on first play-through and still haven't finished the game. What a shitty game, consuming all my free time with fun shit to do. And the sad part is, that I'm already looking forward to my next play-through!

    Man, I expected some bashing of Andromeda, because EA/ME3 ending, but damn son. People climb on any train these days. Yes, there are some problems. The goofy animations have been drilled to North Dakota and back.

    So I guess that makes me the fanboy. Enjoying Andromeda. Not buying in to the hate-bash-train. Defending Bioware until the end of times. LOL.

    In my 97 hours, I've only experienced 3 bugs that required me to load a previous save. Some of the shit in the videos above I think is before the Day 1 patch.

    Let's get serious for a moment. Here are the scores of Andromeda around the web;

    • Press Start – 9
    • Gaming Nexus – 8.8
    • Forbes – 8.5
    • PlayStation Universe – 8
    • The Sixth Axis – 8
    • PCGamer – 80/100
    • PCGamesN – 8
    • IGN – 7.7
    • Polygon – 7.5
    • Trusted Reviews – 70/100
    • RPG Site – 7
    • Hardcore Gamer – 70/100
    • GamesRadar – 3.5/5
    • Destructoid – 6.5
    • PlayStation Lifestyle – 65/100
    • Gamespot – 6
    • Metro – 6
    • USGamer – 3/5
    • Digital Trends – 5
    • Eurogamer – “probably BioWare’s worst RPG yet”
    • Kotaku – “a game to get lost in”
    • Shack News – in progress (but uses the phrase “ruff Ryder” in the URL)
    • Rock, Paper, Shotgun – (no single quote was representative of this savage take down)

    That's a pretty wide spread. Metacritic currently has the game at 75/100. TOTAL PIECE OF SHIT!!!

    (I could apologize for the sarcasm, but won't) <3

    I know it'll sound like heresy to @fatcat superfan :D but I'm seeing a lot of 'meh' opinions coming from people I usually trust the opinions of for games. I think I'll wait til this one's on sale.

    not a bad idea. it's a mixed bag right now. some things are great, and other parts are not. will have to see how bioware addresses some things
