    I have. Theyre basically normal multiplayer matches but with set conditions (map, difficulty, enemy type) and some modifiers like 1000% melee damage.

    You get more rewards for doing these missions as well as squad points. Which you can in turn use to buy more teams, equipment for your teams, consumables, respec tokens, or equipment for your multiplayer character.

    So I passed up the chance to romance Cora. Come to find out, she's the best option. Is it too late for me? Can I find a way to re-romance her?

    i settled for a hug with her instead of romance. Was going for Vetra.

    No idea. I was going Cora but flirted with Peebee and all females except vetra. At some point Cora was like "Peebee?" And now I think I'm stuck with Peebee.

    I feel like an RPG fan should want to adhere to a build. A level cap makes the decisions you make more vital. If you like going god mode (Skyrim, Fallout 4) then I get not liking level caps

    I haven't played so far so idk. I just prefer level caps because it limits skill/ability allocation and let's you feel the burn of bad decisions. It's just an added difficulty measure to games and I'm all about difficulty. Fallout 3 gets me wet at that level 30 cap. Every time you pick a skill it's a struggle

    What did you guys do after Eos first vault?

    Did you follow main? Go after arks? Side missions?

    Is there any way to do a wrong order?

    Not really sure I can care much about this set of characters.

    Maybe not far enough along, but they don't seem as layered as the previous trilogy. Vetra, Drack aren't giving me much.

    I got Eos to 80 then went and got Voeld to 100

    Back on Eos and finishing it now. Pretty cool how they update you with what's been going on and give you new tasks after you've been gone for a while

    Been playing a lot of mp. What's the best way to get a vanquisher? I've been opening a 50k pack after every gold extraction, but that may not be the best way.

    Update coming Thursday

    http://www.polygon.com/2017/4/4/15179004/mass-effect-andromeda-patch-improvements-bioware


    key bits:

    "Flynn noted that BioWare is releasing a patch this Thursday, April 6, that will fix a number of bugs and introduce some improvements that fans have been asking for. The version 1.05 patch will resolve problems such as saves not working properly, incorrect playback of music or voice-overs, Ryder becoming stuck in a pose, and Ryder using a zig-zag running animation.

    The update will also make it possible to skip ahead when traveling between planets in the galaxy map, which addresses one of the biggest complaints from players. Other changes include increases in the inventory limits, better-looking eyes for humans and asari, cheaper and more accessible remnant decryption keys, and “improved lip-sync and facial acting during conversations, including localized [voice-over].”"

    oh that thing. I didnt consider that as the toughest thing I faced. do not enter that room, just post up in the room outside it and force them to come through the doors. the thing will just stand there floating until you come close enough or shoot it.

    ps - mini spoiler
    I am thinking that there is one on every level, it must be like a base commander type thing. I fought one on the frozen planet

    Fuck the reviews. This game is awesome. It feels like pure Mass Effect. Haven't run into shitty animations but I'm ok with the character models being 360/PS3 level. They pack too much other shit into the game for me to worry about that.

    Facial animations are significantly better. Still a ton of bugs though.

    That said it's all I've been playing.

    Yeah that definitely helps.

    The main things I've run into are freezes traveling between worlds. Had a couple instances where the dialog choice wheel didn't work so I had to quit out. One time I was trapped in the nomad after fast traveling to the tempest. That was interesting.

    Seriously, I'm not running into the bugs you guys mentioned. I have zero complaints other than some awkward dialogue every now and then but I appreciate how weird some of the relationships are.

    Again, fuck reviewers. I love Mass Effect again.
