I want that shirt! Ha!

So what is everyone thinking? Sarah or Scott for playthrough #1?

I'm thinking Sarah.

Sarah seems to be on the short end of things, so I think her for the first time.

I'll probably go Sara on Xbone and Scott on PS4.


Kinda bummed, due to the storm New England is getting tomorrow I am now working the 16th instead of a planned day off to start Andromeda...

Scott first for me.

 

I can't believe it's only two more days until we get to play... and then only 10 hours before it's cruelly yanked away again!

Two days and some hours, depending on when the trial hits EA Access.

ME Guide Pathfinder Edition now down to $77.99:

 

https://www.amazon.c.../dp/0744017912/

 

If you're wavering on it, it's dropped almost $50 since release, with it being $130 at BB.com and higher on the Bioware store.  If you're interested in it, this might be the time to toss your hat into the ring for it.

I know you guys know (squadmates in this case) but I don't want to know so from now on can you Spoiler tag that shit!

8/3 Days and Counting, I'm counting it as 3.

I debated it, but i think I'm going to pass on getting EA access for this.  I'd just dedicate the entire time to the MP, which isn't a bad thing.  I guess I just feel like If I've waited this long, I can wait a couple more days for the 100% entire and complete experience with no gates or restrictions.  Am I dumb for thinking this way?

 

I'm still having a heck of a good time with Horizon, but I have to come to terms with the reality that I'm going to have to put that on the shelf until the summer.  I hate leaving games unfinished.  But this is Mass Effect for crying out loud.

That's why I already pushed through and got the Horizon plat, no distractions. I will have some Zelda left to play though...

Thanks Shrike.

Yeah that's the reason I didn't pick up Zelda for Wii U or grab Steep on Xbox One, although I did enjoy my time with it over the free weekend period. There's just no point at this point lol.

My BB POP also showed up.  The GS one about a week ago. 

 

Wish the Target one was listed already, so I can get the set taken care of without eyeballing eBay and getting irked about it.

I just listened to the latest Podcast Unlocked and in it they had a bit talking about their exclusive Firsts with Mass Effect and trying to avoid spoilers. The guy was like well it's the first 13 minutes of the game so yeah there's gonna be spoilers. The community was appreciative for how they're unveiling the game, trying to minimize spoilers but also show people the goods. Also apparently people at PAX East were able to get their hands on the multiplayer of Andromeda?!

7/2 Days and Counting!

Introducing Drack. Be aware that this one, more so than the other teammate videos, shows some stuff that you might prefer to be surprised by in the game. ;)

There's just a torrent of new videos today from all kinds of sites, I think at this point I'm going to stop worrying about posting everything. The game is on our doorstep anyway. :)

From my Google News feed, three reviews, presumably from the trial or its equivalent.  They're all full of spoilers, so tread lightly:

 

I'd classify them as Good:

Not bad:

and Ugly:

Yeah that "Ugly" preview is really something lol. Guy seems very angry at the game!

 

Previews are interesting to read but I already know all I need to know to be able to confidently predict that I will love this game. :)

I can't say if I'll like the game or not, but I do know I am interested in it and am keeping my preorder.  I'm avoiding reviews as they drop spoilers even without intending to.  I can't believe the launch trailer kinda contains spoilers.  From all the other videos leading up to this point, I assumed we were tasked with exploring those 7 worlds.  Then

Spoiler
  Like WTF.  It's probably not a huge deal, but I wished I would've found that out in-game instead.
