    ME1 gameplay is worlds apart different from 2 & 3 :p

    You will not regret it! I've played Mass Effect (1) on old X360 first but then had to play it again on PC because it was so good. After few hours you will not even notice dated graphics! Music is top notch in my opinion and I played all ME games with all DLC's.

    From my recent RPG games I rate:
    1. Witcher games
    2. ME games
    3. TES
    4. DeusEX reboot

    Generally I don't get fussed about graphics but if there's an easy graphics modpack I'll just throw it on.

    ME1 is my favourite. Just slap MEUITM and enable AO from nVidia drivers (although this sometimes makes some, already dark scenes very dark)
    Hoping at least Sam Hulick would be doing music.

    (from ME1 "Caleston" DLC)

    Here's some pre-alpha PS4 footage. From the Neo, in 4K :O

    And I just bought a 1440p monitor. 4k just seems so.. unnecessary.

    my new laptop can play it flawlessly, thanks goodness. It's just a humble Celeron N3050, but it is so efficient compared to a kinda monster CPU laptop I had at the time -2011, a i5-2450m- that contrary to the i5 it doesn't stall when playing 4k content, needs no ventilation -it never achieves 99 Celsius degrees like the other-, it just needs 6W of power and games run better on it than on my previous APU. Not a powerhouse by any means, but efficiency wise I'm quite happy to have this one PC now.

    edit: nevermind, the display is sooooo bad, it's 768p, not even 1080p, that despite choosing the 4k content, 720p or 1080p would suffice to set the video resolution, I see no benefit at all. Still, it's impressive how it runs at 4k on the pro

    That's it, you've officially mentioned your new laptop in every thread on the board! :yes:

    The footage of Andromeda did nothing for me. I know it's hard to engage with something with no context but this actually dulled my interest in the game. I've still to play ME3 though. Kinda putting it off.

    It's pretty but sure looks very familiar too. I got bored to tears with the series about halfway thru 3. I guess we'll have to see what else their new galaxy has going for it. It really needs to not play exactly like the others.

    Yeah, not a good demo. Felt like a last-minute request to Bioware to show something.

    Tight armour.

    Ass Effect has always been about spandex body armour.

    Everywhere. So I guess the idea is not to be offensive...

    ME1: Woooooooo, epic !
    ME2: Woooo- wait, the game is finished and I've only done side quests ?
    ME3: Meh, crap story, crap ending, and that horrible mobile app which was thought to be required to experience the "best" ending
    ME4: No thanks, I'll wait for reviews, and then for discounted prices

    And that video certainly does not make me feel interested.
    Boring platforming in what looks like a repeat of ME2 last chapter

    Ah well you bought/played ME3... more courage than me. Or maybe masochism ;)

    ME3 ending didn't bother me at all, and the multiplayer stuff in it was great - one of only a handful of games I've played multiplayer in the last 5 years , coop with randoms actually worked well for once :)
