Re: Games and all things related

So, how about that Mass Effect 3 demo.

Oh God, what a pile of shit. Seriously. Okay.

So, the introduction makes no fucking sense. I really fucking hope that's a symptom of a truncated demo, rather than how the actual game begins. Because, holy fucking shit.

The dialogue choices are in a lot of cases, confirmed to lead to the same fucking dialogue. Which itself, is mediocre/bad as fuck. Seriously, it's like watching a Michael Bay movie.

The combat is the same as ME2, but glitchy as hell and with the addition of unnecessary concessions to other games. The ability to roll is completely useless. The game now has COD style hit-response indicators, which would be okay if it weren't for the fact that I played two games without them and seemed to be able to shoot shit just fucking fine. It's a clear concession to COD kiddies that need their hand held through the entire game - a vibe this demo is giving off in droves.

The animations are fucking awful. Like, immersion-breakingly bad. Everyone runs like they've cacked themselves. FemShep still has the animation frame of ManShep - so she still moves like a fucking gorilla. And, get this - they've taken the ability to holster your weapon at any time out of the game - because of the memory constraints of consoles. Now you can only do it when Bioware deems it okay to do so. One thing I fucking HATE is having to run around pointing my gun at everything like I'm in South Central.

The hamfisted, blatant trope of including a child to engage an emotional response in the player. If you've played the demo you'll see exactly what I mean. It's fucking ridiculous.


I am loathe to buy this game. I really only want to play it because I've invested so much time and interest in this series already that I feel I need to see the ship sink.
