Most gamers these days don't want replayability, especially in a 100 hour game. They want to be able to do everything with one character (see also: being able to be master of every guild in recent TES games). Once and done and see/do it all! Get 100% of the e-peen achievements! I guess it's not bad game design to pander to the larger audience.

Some of us like to have to make choices that preclude other ones, to have something to return to and do differently on a subsequent playthrough. Pretty sure we're the minority, though.

But that's what Daddy Ryder did in the opening sequence. Cora even asked him about it. He explained it had to do with SAM. The game gave you this function and the in-game justification for it, expecting that you would take advantage of it - being able to instantly adjust your abilities to meet the needs of the current situation is what separates Ryder from, say... Shepard...

You're missing all the other skills. :D

Just because you can only use 3 at one time doesn't mean you shouldn't learn others. Take advantage of the profile system and put together different builds for different situations, and switch on the fly.

Yeah, it was pretty good. Lots of intelligent ideas.

I just wish I could have made out the words.  ;D

Cora gets to spend the entire game on the Tempest. Where she belongs. :P

No, I literally couldn't understand what he was saying.

Unfortunately, I couldn't understand 90% of the words.

Yeah, that Tempest lag thing sounds weird af. I hate inexplicable issues like that. Happy I don't have it or I'd probably ragequit.

Drack is awesome. I also adore Peebee. I keep saying I'm going to romance Suvi (that accent, /swoon) or Liam and then I end up with Peebee anyway.  <3

I like not having to manage the NPCs equipment. (ok, I *love* not having to do so)
I like not having to micromanage them in combat.
Everything just flows nice and smooth. I do my thing, they do theirs, we kick ass, and move on.

I prefer just playing my one character, not a group. I don't like party-based RPGs very much for the same reason.

I'm hoping to do a complete upgrade of my system in the near future, and Andromeda is pretty high on my list to play through with a much beefier video card.  ;D

It's pretty sweet on a 1080. :D

Backlog? I don't have no stinking backlog!

I simply have an extensive list of games that have been left unattended...

I had to put this on hold for Conan Exiles (so much fun!). I was also gifted Metal Gear Survive the other night so I have to give that some time, too.

Andromeda will be there... when I get there again. lol

Conan Exiles comes out of Early Access today. Woo! Much hype. I <3 this game.

195 hours in it so far. Time to start over!

I had a maaaaassive itch for a good JRPG

That must have been disappointing.

I only just finished setting up the Eos outpost. Probably won't get a whole lot further before the coming weeks explode with other things to play, though...

Conan Exiles releases on May 8 (much excited! I've been playing Early Access for a long time, and it's so much fun!)
ESO: Summerset releases on May 21 (I own it, but not chomping at the bit for it, so it can wait)
State of Decay 2 releases on May 22 (woooooo!)
Agony releases on May 29 (finally!)
Vampyr releases on June 5 (I don't own this one yet, so I can wait... a bit...)

Gonna be crazy trying to get all this in, along with Andromeda!
