It's here! It's here! At least in some parts of the world.

Post your initial thoughts about the game in this thread to save the community's top page. :3

If your comment includes game spoilers, please try to use an LJ-SPOILER tag (see this FAQ article on how to use them) to mask them from casual perusal. Want it more likely to be read as we go? Indicate about how far into the game the spoiler took place and very general information that might help someone knowledgeable identify whether or not they want to read it (location of the spoiler, squadmate involved, LI involved, etc.)

Interested in multi-player? Find the MEA Gamertag Swapmeet thread here!

NOTE:
Comments which include spoilers but that are not cut by an LJ-SPOILER tag will be screened and a request sent to edit or re-post the comment with the tag. Please try to be courteous to your fellow community members and remember to use it.

As always: no flames, no drama, let's all have fun out there. Go out and explore, Pathfinder!

While alas ME:A didn't grab me the way I'd hoped it would, it did make me want to replay the original trilogy. In so doing, I realized I'm still bitter about not being able to have the option to convince Thane to have the operation. I have a vague memory that at one point during ME3 development, that story option was on the table, but I don't know if that's a real memory or just wishful thinking. Does anyone here remember anything about that?

On a tangent - somehow, the DLC I have for Zaeed is broken - when I started me ME2 game I saw it talk about "recruiting the veteran" and yet - nope, no actual mission. Kinda a bummer and not sure why since the other DLC are all here.

Did the prep-work on this when it looked like we weren't going to get a Sara trailer, and now we're more than a month post-release I finally got round to doing something with it.



Originally I was just going to drop shots of my Ryder in where appropriate, but it felt kinda weird given how so much of the pre-release advertising featured way earlier builds of certain scenes, not to mention how certain shots were clearly created just for the trailer (for example one shot of Scott in the official trailer has him taking the place of a squadmate), soooo I ended up recreating the entire trailer from scratch, going as far as replacing the pre-rendered cutscenes with captures of them from the game itself.

Next time I'll do a full-on 100% original fan trailer.

I know this is not very important to anyone else but I'm super happy about it. It took me almost 4 years to do this but...

I'd thought I'd share. I got it done before Andromeda. Sadly 2 and 3 will have to wait as I am quite burned out.

"In order to blend the triumphs of space exploration with the fear of an unknown galaxy, BioWare brought in film/TV composer John Paesano to create hybrid soundtrack that features both orchestral and synthesized elements."

The Rules

Still working through your first playthrough and want to post reactions? Please post here!

* Looking to discuss multiplayer tactics? Tactics Tuesday has you covered

* Post any and all fandom fluff (i.e. non-gameplay related YouTube videos, reviews of the game from other sources, silly fan speculation, icon posts, image macros, photo manips) or semi-to-totally off-topic stuff here and ONLY in this topic until the next one the following week. The definition of fandom fluff is entirely up to you, as the aforementioned are just general examples.

* NO PERSONAL ATTACKS/DRAMA. PERIOD.

* WIP posts for fic/art/whatever must all be posted to one thread.

* Some comments may be NSFW. However, anything containing full-on nudity (especially if it includes reproductive parts) must be text linked.

* You may advertise for non-Mass Effect/BioWare related communities during SLF (but not outside of it)


*** ON SPOILERS ***

SLF should be considered a spoiler zone for all traditionally released "Mass Effect: Andromeda" material and the entirety of the original Shepard Trilogy. If you haven't finished ME1-3 -OR- you're avoiding any and all MEA spoilers, enter at your own risk!

All SPOILERS which are not first reactions should go behind an <LJ-SPOILER> tag and in the Spoiler Thread.

Hope everyone is enjoying the game so far!

If whoever gets to this post first could create the following top-level thread1, that would be fabulous:
<B><FONT SIZE=4>Spoiler Thread</FONT></B>

Please use this as the top level comment and put all spoilers within an &\lt;LJ-SPOILER&\gt; tag.

(Ed. note: remove the backslash (\) from within the & lt and & gt code in the second c&p example prior to posting)

March 21st, 2017 - Tactics Tuesday (21-Mar)
ME - Multiplayer1
Looking for someone to play multiplayer with from this community? Check out the Gamertag Swapmeet post!


Tactics Tuesday is an effort to provide a regular forum for multi-player question threads in an effort to try to collect as many suggestions and tips under a single banner to make it easier for people to memory or reference later.

This is intended to be for everyone to use, for players just getting their feet wet to expert players. If you’re a newbie player wanting to improve, don’t feel daunted to speak up. If you’re a pro, feel free to jump in with either advice or questions of your own

Please do not assume in responses that someone has unlocked a specific gun or class type (unless it's about that specific gun or class type :D), much less maxed them out. If you can, give alternatives.

Good luck, and thanks for participating!

To make it easier to keep tabs on responses either to the post or individual threads, use the ‘Track This’ option under the main link or individual comments

Because it seems to have been missed on the SLF post (I admit I totally didn't see it).

Post screenshots of "your" Shepard and your favorite memory from the original Mass Effect Trilogy.
