    Since the trailer is out, let's start a ME:A megathread, shall we?

    We know this one isn't following the Shepard saga anymore, and by the sounds of it it's going to be in the Andromeda galaxy (call it a hunch...).

    The trailer shows the return of the Mako, which looks about a thousand times better and faster this time around as well as jetpacks!

    Release date is holiday season 2016, but I'm still pretty hyped.

    Between this, Doom and Fallout, I foresee a lot of time neglecting music production in the year to come.

    I still haven't even played ME3, since they decided the PC version would only be available on EA Origin or whatever the hell EA's stupid PC store... thing... is called. I'll get back in to the series when they decide to put it on Steam again.

    Unless they already have, in which case, I know what I'm doing this weekend.

    Install it, play me3, remove it. Origin really isn't that big a deal outside the fact that it's another application that I rarely use and would prefer to consolidate.

    Edit: woo! My first post in this thread got me to 1k posts.

    I actually have Origin already, because some games forced me to install it, even though I bought the damned things on Steam (the Assassin's Creed games, I believe). It's annoying having to use the app to play games, but I put up with it if the games are good enough. Having to use it to buy the games, on the other hand, is a no-go.

    If they forced me to run Origin to play ME3 I'd do it, but instead I actually have to buy it through them. I have my financial info associated with enough sh!t as it is, I'm going to stick with Steam. They don't need my money badly enough to make it available there, so I'll continue never getting to play it :lol:.

    That's two more sales that they would have if they'd release it on steam. Screw Origin.

    Fair enough, and understandable. For what it's worth I think you can buy download codes from certain sites using PayPal or something. Then you can "redeem code" or something. I can't recall any sites off hand, but I know I got dragon age for cheap on release day using this method.

    Stoked! I haven't played video games in a very long time, but after playing all three and knowing this is coming out... this may just suck me back in

    It's still too early to make actual judgements, but I have to say that although it seems they've worked a lot on environments and improving gameplay mechanics like the mako, if the game lacks the emotional attachment that can be achieved through the infamous dialog mechanics, this game will feel lackluster compared to its predecessors.

    After all, it's all about being space Jesus, being praised and getting laid with alien chicks. :lol:

    Mass Effect is one of my favourite series, but it's still too early to say anything and be excited.

    100% agree with that. If it doesn't have these things then it won't be Mass Effect.

    I'm super excited, but I thought the trailer was garbage. If I were basing my impression on the trailer, I would have ignored the game completely. Given my fondness of ME3, they could've just gone on stage, yelled "MASS EFFECT ANDROMEDA FROSTBITE!" and walked off and I'd be equally thrilled.

    Yeah I'm with you Promit, in theory I am excited for a Mass Effect game but that trailer was just terrible

    Much excite.

    Love the ME franchise, hated the ending to ME3. Really glad to hear the fourth installment isn't even taking place in the same galaxy - the more distance they put between the ending of ME3 and the beginning of ME4, the better.

    Excited for a revamped Mako, and everyone in production has really nice things to say about the combat system. Really looking forward to this one.

    I logged over a thousand hours on ME3 the year it was released.

    You could say that I am excited.

    Multi was great and intense.
    Me and my groups were the first 10 in the Italian PS3 leaderboards.
    We had such a great time together and we still have a whatsapp chat we talk with daily

    Big fan of the Mass Effect series, really hope this'll be good. The concept art they've released looks incredible so far.
