Mass effect andromeda patch 1.04 - Free Download
This big year-two expansion irons out most of Destiny 2's wrinkles and offers some of the most mysterious, enjoyable content the series has seen so far. Forza Horizon 4's connected world and seasonal weather help make what's otherwise a very familiar-feeling experience feel fresh one more time.
Single player balance changes: Ammo crates, armor, weapons, nomad, profiles, attacks, and progression. Weapons, cover, and enemies check back for detailed notes on balance changes. Fixed issue where player was unable to access the Remnant Console Interface after failing decryption multiple times. Fixed issue where fast travel is sometimes disabled after recruiting Drack until the player reloads a save.
Thank god you can skip the planet loading animation now. I'm still probably going to wait for a sale to pick this one up if at all It's out Thursday, according to them. All this stuff sounds good, and their changes in the next few months sounds good but it's a really long time to wait since I'm halfway through already.
The ability to skip the whole autopilot thing makes me so very excited. I wouldn't have minded it if it was maybe jus between galaxies cause it's kind of s cool affect but every single planet is ridiculous. I'm excited and I'll try it when it comes out; too bad I already put hours in and finished everything aside from a few task missions.
Since launch, our team has been poring over your comments and feedback, looking to discover what you like about the game, as well as areas we can evolve or improve. There are many more adjustments being made, all of which you can find in our patch notes. These upcoming patches will also address performance and stability issues. On Thursday, we kick off the first of three new chapters centered around The Remnant Investigation.
And as always, you all play an important role in that. Gonna put this game on the back burner until I finish Zelda and Persona. By that time I hope a few more patches hit and make the game even better. I've had some bugs on the pc version but more inconvenient than game breaking.
In a few months a look forward to coming back to it. This is exactly why I'll wait till the GOTY edition is out and on sale and I'm sure I'll not only have a decent time with it but will arguably get a better experience than people who bought it at launch. This is a serious problem with modern releases, especially western releases Japanese games have tended to launch more finished and receive less post-launch tinkering, with FF XV being a notable exception.
The message is "Buy and play this game for full price now! It will be much better in 6 months! I'm not saying they shouldn't fix bugs and the like, but design choices like inventory size and skippable cut-scenes should be fixed and locked in before launch. Will there be a game of the year edition, though? I enjoyed the game quite a bit as it was, but these are definitely welcome improvements.
Waiting a while is a good idea. It sometimes seems like they're still working on their games after release but are forced to put it out early. Some of these things like not being able to skip from planet-to-planet on a whim seems like they legitimately thought it was a good idea, but all the glitches or bad facial expressions and what have you, it seem like they were forced to put it out early in my opinion. Can we all just blame EA on his one again? P Ha ha, no.
Whoops, I skipped over that in the blog post. I've changed the title to reflect that. Really though, this is too little, too late. I'll be nearly done by Thursday and certainly complete by the time the game is patched to a reasonable state two months from now. Plus, even if they fix the facial animations, dialogue timing, crashes, t-poses and everything else, there's no patch to make a sadly boring story and world more interesting.
I've got seriously mixed feelings about it. I mean, this doesn't seem like a Dragon Age II "get it done in 12 months - or else. They've had five years to work on this. At a certain point, it must become obvious that you've bitten off more than you can chew and need to walk back the scope of the game a little bit to be manageable. As much as I can understand wanting to chase the Witcher 3, that game also had about twice the budget. Half the budget should mean half the scope.
I'd be very interested to know about the behind the scenes on this one. There are rumors of inter-studio hostility between Edmonton and Montreal. Did that fuck things up? Overconfidence on Montreal's part? Was "we got this" a literal development mantra? Did EA constantly require more to be done? A combination of those? A lot of lessons to carry forward with this one. Unfortunately, BioWare seems to be a studio that stubbornly refuses to learn them.
I'm sure they have DLC plans and Inquisition had story DLC so if this is using that same framework then they'll probably have some as well.
A GOTY version is always a good way to drum up some more sales. I'm only about 10 hours into the game, so I think I'll put it on hold. Seems like I would be doing myself a huge disfavor if I keep playing. Very happy to see the skip travel sequence but i really want to see what type of balance changes they are making for multiplayer. Seems like my strategy of 'waiting until the game is fixed before playing it' is slowly but surely working out.
When they had an announcement about their announcement I was expecting more than this. These patch notes and future plans are pretty underwhelming. I guess I thought of it is as literally game of the year.
I thought, instead of just it getting praise and with critics quotes put on a box, I'd think it'd need an actual GOTY award to get an edition. It's just a name, that's stupid. Anyways, yeah, in that case there very well could be a 'game of the year' edition. I said it because I don't think there'll be a lot of game of the year awards this game's getting.
If they waited a couple more weeks instead of putting it out before the end of the fiscal year it might have made a big difference to their review scores if these changes are as good as they sound.
It would still be a bad Mass Effect but it could have gotten more praise as a direct to video ME. According to some gb dudes I'm about half way through the game and I think at a really good stopping point story wise.
This made my decision much easier to just wait until I beat Zelda and Persona to finish this game. Inquisition reviewed pretty well mid to high 80s on metacritic depending on the version. That's pretty much the most high profile game of the year award there is. Oh then who knows? I always assumed it was just a bundle name at this point but maybe you do need to actually win some GOTY award to get that prestigious title.
I liked Dragon Age Inquisition a lot. If the game had better side content which is the issue with this game I would probably consider it as good as The Witcher 3. Heck, I don't even like saying I like one or the other more, but just being realistic about how I feel I'd say The Witcher 3 is a bit better to me. I love Dragon Age and Inquisition topped even Origins in my opinion. Two is good mainly because the characters are really likable to me, and combat is faster paced which I didn't mind.
That all said, I am a bigger fan of Mass Effect for sure mainly because I am more into sci-fi than fantasy, but Inquisition is a better game than Andromeda I think overall. Eh, I'm just kind of rambling. What I wanted to say is that no, actually Inquisition rated really well which now I read is already stated , 85 - 89 on Metacritic, and it did win awards.
Even on GameSpot, they gave Shadow of Mordor game of the year over Dragon Age because they said it was simply a newer experience, otherwise, Inquisition would have won.
My assumption of how game of the year editions works is wrong I now believe. Edit - It's possible that it doesn't necessarily need the game of the year award, but some sort of accolade instead of just praise.
I mean, that makes sense. I've never seen a game that scored terribly with only several good reviews toward the game, and then there was game of the year edition out of it, otherwise you'd think every developer would try to put that kind of thing out. It's also possible that a nomination would be good enough to warrant it. I'm happy I'm waiting for a sale on this. I have a feeling by summer time this game will be technically much better.
I'm not saying it won't still have obvious issues, but I think some of that is relative to how much of the same stuff you didn't mind in the original Mass Effect trilogy.
One thing that always gets me is people ripping on the romance scenes, not just the animations but the "low quality" of how hokey they felt. I feel like people saying that either are mis-remembering or totally didn't play the original Mass Effect trilogy. The romance scenes in all those games were just as hokey haha. Anyway, I'm happy to leave this on the back burner, and like a lot of big AAA releases, becomes a better performing game later in't is life cycle.
And while I"m not saying that makes that "acceptable" at the same time enough games launch broken that this is a thing that I think all of us can realize we've been dealing with for years now.
How many games end up being much more playable and worth it 6 months or a year after release?
