    Hey gang,

    I started my EA Access preview of Andromeda last night, so I thought I'd see who else has gotten a start on the game. If so, what are your thoughts?

    I've always been a huge ME fan, and I gotta say -- cleanest combat gameplay yet. Granted, I've pretty much just done multiplayer so far (and on Xbox, no PC yet), but I'm pretty happy with what they've done. They finally ditched the horrendously awkward sprint options, and you no longer glitch into cover when trying to run away. A little bummed that (as of now) it seems like MP is really geared against sniping with the size of the maps and the number of ways to get surrounded so easily, but it is what it is. The infil+shotty approach will still be pretty lethal. Also the biotic recharge times -- each power individually instead of one power setting you back before you can use any other power -- what are your thoughts on this if you're a biotic user? I kind of like it, but I feel like it'll take some getting used to. Dodging in with the Asari Adept and being able to prime and detonate twice with no delay between the 3 powers is pretty epic for taking out spawn points, but then the overall recharge rate after that is longer. Somewhat reminiscent of the collector adept strategy from ME3, which was always my go-to for platinum play.

    oh also, hooooly crap the faces are bad hahahah like guys what were you doing with the graphics on that part of the game? everything else looks so good but the people look like mutilated puppets trying to talk to each other

    Excited for the full launch and to hear other folks' thoughts on this :) this game is gonna be the worst thing for my study habits haha

    I'll try the trail out sometime. I'm about half way through Mass Effect 3 right now, I got Origin Access a few months ago and played through 1 and 2. I don't know why but I never played them back when they came out. I saw a couple trailers/gameplay for Andromeda and the graphics looks bad, not sure if it was from consoles or what so it'll be nice to try the trail.

    I've been playing through since the preview and I just finished the story with about 88% of the game complete. Really enjoyed playing as an infiltrator and being able to switch to a fun cloak/charge/shotgun build against some of the more armored enemies.

    Really looking forward to playing a second playthrough after the Thursday patch and playing as FRyder on Insanity.
