Oh yeah, the ME storyline is complete garbage.
I like the lovingly crafted backstory and small detail though.

Nobody wonders, because the fanbase is pretty nice polarised on the subject.

Are you looking for more RPG skill-crafting out of the next Mass Effect?
Does Gabe Newell ever wonder what life would be like without Gordon Freeman?

I think that's unlikely.

I replayed ME1 and 2 and DLCs all the way through recently, and a little bit of 3. The steep curve downwards in terms of RPG stat content is staggering. Shooting mechanics are arguably getting better through instalments, but all RPG elements are clearly falling by the wayside.

Although I loved ME2 when it was new, replaying 1 and 2 back to back, I much preferred the original, with real stats and an open world, instead of compartmentalized mission areas. Honestly, I have no interest in this new entry to the franchise, there are a lot of shooting games out there.

Most of the open world side missions in Mass Effect 1 were terrible copy-pasted buildings and assets dumped onto desolate planets just to give the player something to do. Much prefer a linear well paced progression to that. I thought the core campaign was very strong in Mass Effect 1, but overall as complete packages Mass Effect 2 and 3 were more consistent. Even the optional stuff was well fleshed out and strong. Agree about the dumbing down of RPG elements though. The shooting and combat mechanics got stronger with 2 and 3, but not the RPG stuff.

Overall though love this franchise and very much look forward to the next installment.

My main problem with ME3 is the way they cut out core story stuff which was critical to the lore and asked people to pay for it as DLC. That was quite a scumbag move as it affected the cohesiveness and richness of the main storyline.

That's kind of why I've held of on Fallout 4 for now.

I'm of two minds on Mass Effect, though. Numbers 2 and 3 were a lot more polished, the shooting mechanics were a lot better and I liked their focus on characters. But the trend of stripping RPG elements, distilling character builds down to choosing your combat skills is something that saddens me.

I'm really looking forward to this. Mass Effect is one of the few franchises I make time to finish. Being an adult really affects my ability to do nothing for an entire day and just play video games.

Patch 1.05 is live. I took some screenshots on my R9 290 to show the improved eye modelling in humans and asari characters.

This is important in making them seem life like.
