Ah, quality from Bioware. I can't believe that people are getting money for it. If only I was paid for shitposting on duke4. Still, surprised no one posted recommended specs articles:

Mass Effect: Andromeda's recommended specs will get you 30fps at 1080p

Quote

The latest recommended specs for Mass Effect: Andromeda, revealed by Nvidia yesterday, will actually only get you 30fps at 1080p, so you're going to need a hefty rig to hit 60fps.
The recommended specs, as you can see below, ask for a Core i7-4790, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 1060, however, that's all based on a 1080p resolution, 30fps, and a High graphics options preset. Welp.
If you’re in need of an upgrade, check out our guide on the best CPU for gaming.
These details appeared on EA's support site yesterday. You're going to need an absolute monster rig if you're planning on playing at 4K with a playable frame rate, then.


The best part about it is that you need 16GB of RAM. I can only imagine how shitty optimization is.

This is.....truly embarrassing. They've got to be just hoping against hope that the brand alone will make everyone overlook these incredibly glaring issues.

16GB of RAM? Do they just load every single uncompressed asset into memory?

Or store everything in RAM as a cache for faster texture loading?

High system requirements make it sound to laymen like it's the next big game to get.

Didn't you know that PC = master race = all PC gamers have twenty titans and 128GB of ram.

True PC gamers are manufacturing their own parts. You're not PC gamer if you don't have GPU with 160GB of VRAM and that is just a minimum.

True PC gamers have overclocked crays, cooled with liquid nitrogen. Anything less indicates something even worse than a console peasant - a filthy casual!

Damn I'm behind the times, the computer I use for work has 5624 cores, 24TB of memory, and 336 GPUs, but the GPUs only have 24GB of RAM each Posted Image

Only 5624 cores? No wonder you have problems running Polymer on that heap of junk. You sir, win a Carmack Facepalm.

I watched the first hour of gameplay just for fun. I'm not seeing that many critical game-breaking bugs. Unless the occasional audio cutting out counts. I don't know if that's due to the game or the person's system hardware. I used to have issues with ME1's audio cutting out prematurely during a sentence like ME:A's does until I got an actual sound card.

Otherwise it looks interesting.

All this does is make me want a space RPG game where you play an alien instead of a boring human even more.

Ugly human to be exact. Though aliens there are ugly too.

I think their face scanning stuff just sucks. Most of the women they scanned for ME2 and 3 had some part of their face butchered and they didn't seem to bother to clean it up with later editing.

Surprised there hasn't been a Crowbcat video yet to completely overshadow all the other attempts at doing similar videos.

Bullshit. Almost everyone who works there is an SJW dipshit. It's not a coincidence.

Chappy pozzed my neghole.

Hmmm, the lead facial animator for Andromeda was a female cosplayer with little video game development experience and her demo reel opens up with "I hate men".

THERE IT IS!!!!!!

The segment in the video is called "I Hate Men" You can tell because that's what the voice actor in the animation says and that the next segment is called "Met Before" and the same thing happens. Link to said video https://vimeo.com/62556369?width=1080

Talented people wouldn't make such a shitty game. Even 3d porn makers make better animations than these hacks who call themselves AAA developers. You can see huge flaws even on their official promotional material, this is even worse than DA:I. Or do you assume they did it on purpose?

Yeah, totally. That's why they can create an entire race of male fantasy sex slaves whole cloth, and can't help but make Yvonne Strahovski's face look a bit ridiculous while making sure to she has an even better body than in real life. There's nothing "SJW", they just fucking suck.

That's an audio clip from All About Eve.
