The first has been on my Wish List for so long.  I haven't gotten it because I have heard mixed things about how it has aged.

Something to keep an eye on.

I'm going to give Andromeda another try. I haven't played it with the QOL patches. I'll probably uninstall it after a half hour, but we'll see.

It is a serviceable game.  I guess it depends on what pissed you off about it in the first place.  I finished the game last year after a long hiatus.  I still had issues with the game but overall I enjoyed it.  It is disappointing, especially when compared to what Mass Effect was.

If you make a paradox account (or log in if you have one already) I do. I get 50 blood points toward unlocking game goodies! :D

So GeForce Experience is retarded. I was satisfied with how they optimized Skyrim, Fallout 4, Guild Wars 2.


But I installed Andromeda. It "optimized" it to low everything at 1024x768. There are videos on youtube of the underclocked version of my card doing medium at 1366x768 and low at 1080p. I now have to run fraps and fuck around with settings to get them how I want them.

Never let a game or Geforce Experience or AMD's equivalent configure your settings. They'll fuck it up every time.

I did not. :(

Oh well. Thanks for trying!

I'm 10 points from the next unlock, which isn't even revealed yet. Heh.

The lack of saves is already grinding my gears in Andromeda. We'll see if I can hang in there.

Is... is that a console thing? I don't recall ever not being able to save where I wanted.
