Like all those who graciously subscribed to EA Access, Gamersyde has finally been able to play Mass Effect: Andromeda on PC with ultra settings. Even with our GTX 1080 and a 1080p resolution, we have witnessed frame drops during cutscenes (which is all the more surprising as they aren't the least impressive visually), but gameplay sequences seem smooth overall. Pushing the resolution to 1440p results in occasional framerate issues during gameplay. Aside from all the technical issues Gaf members have been making fun of in the past few days, this new episode seems engaging enough to make us want to keep playing. There is nothing mind-blowing about the beginning, as you'll see, and firearms still lack the necessary feedback to be really fun to use, but there is still something appealing in the discovery of strange new worlds, at least for us. If you're curious, join us tonight at 9:00 CET for a new (short) livestream.
I met Jennifer Batten today. She signed my guitar. Me so happy. Amazing guitar player. (15 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: larger scale and deeper vehicle gameplay would be a pretty big change (42 minutes ago)
one coming to mind right now. But I'm sure there's others I'm just not recalling at the moment. (46 minutes ago)
Though in all honesty, I don't believe Ubisoft will do it, and if they do, it won't be anytime soon. If I'm not mistaken, there's not many FPS open world games. Homefront: The Revolution is the only (47 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: I want a different enough style of gameplay, in hopes of a different enough game experience. Far Cry: Primal burned me out, it was exotic, but at one point I just saw a poorer FC3 and 4. (48 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I think you'll get more fantasy Far Cry.. which seems to be what you want.. but I doubt they'll be called "5" or "6" (54 minutes ago)
I hope they get that right. I don't expect Battlefield-quality flight models but it would be nice. (1 Hour ago)
