Like all those who graciously subscribed to EA Access, Gamersyde has finally been able to play Mass Effect: Andromeda on PC with ultra settings. Even with our GTX 1080 and a 1080p resolution, we have witnessed frame drops during cutscenes (which is all the more surprising as they aren't the least impressive visually), but gameplay sequences seem smooth overall. Pushing the resolution to 1440p results in occasional framerate issues during gameplay. Aside from all the technical issues Gaf members have been making fun of in the past few days, this new episode seems engaging enough to make us want to keep playing. There is nothing mind-blowing about the beginning, as you'll see, and firearms still lack the necessary feedback to be really fun to use, but there is still something appealing in the discovery of strange new worlds, at least for us. If you're curious, join us tonight at 9:00 CET for a new (short) livestream.
I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (29 minutes ago)
I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (38 minutes ago)
Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (1 Hour ago)
also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 Hour ago)
just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (2 Hours ago)
New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (3 Hours ago)
The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (3 Hours ago)
