    They finally compiled the list of 300 possible genders you could choose for your character.

    I really wonder how this game’s gonna do. I’m constantly forgetting it exists, but the thing that keeps reminding me is a guy I know who’s super excited for it. Am I way out of touch, or do I just know the world’s last remaining Bioware fan?

    It’s probably going to do…decently. But I doubt it will make as much money EA is counting on.

    And one of the biggest reasons it won’t sell as well as they hope is that racist piece of shit they hired to direct the project and won’t shut up on Twitter about his hatred of white people.

    Ah yes…that fucking douche. Hope he loses his job after this game fails.

    That’s probably gonna be the plan.
    >game sells relatively well
    >They give manveer the boot
    >they gain massively good pr points
    Seems like a win-win

    Not sure if this will be fun to laugh at like 3 or if it will just horribly cringe inducing like Cisquisition.

    The problem isn’t his racism.The problem is if he’s able to make a good game or not.

    I dunno about that, he seems to be in good company over there, it’s just that the others don’t run their mouths on Twitter quite like Manveer does.

    I can’t wait to fucking play this on my PS4. Wagecucking has it’s benefits and one of them is to play games day one when they come out full price. I rarely do this.

    There is no genders you bigoted jerk.

    Thats why its Mass Effect: Androgynous

    Except 1) his racism is likely to carry into the game and 2) many people won’t buy the game at all because of his open racism.

    It will depend on how well it’s masked.Because if it isn’t it will have some insufferable cringy moments.
    Meh.Some people are simply too sensitive.

    Well it would be better if they’d distance themselves from manveer in the future (if that’s even possible)

    I hope this is the nail in the coffin for Bioware because they are beyond a joke at this point.

    I wouldn’t say its being too sensitive. I mean, if someone insults my race, and by extension, me, why should I buy their product and support them? That’s just having some self respect. Its like if I walked into someone’s shop and they yelled, “Hey, you’re a fucking piece of shit, and I hate you and your entire family! Now buy my fucking product!” I’m gonna flip them the bird and walk out of the store, regardless of how good their product is. Same thing here.

    That being said, I probably wasn’t going to buy this anyway, cause Mass Effect 3 was pretty bad and I have no faith in bioware to actually make a good game, but I’m definitely not going to buy it now.

    I’m absolutely ecstatic to hear the complaints about how it’s soulless and just inquisition complete with quests that have less narratives than oldschool korean MMOs, and with a barebones Mass Effect skin.

    Jesus, man. You should treat your hard earned salary better. Anyway, I’ve been meaning to ask you. Are you the infamous Ruggarell with a thousand faces and a billion threads in cuckchan?

    $60 isn’t shit to me anymore. And yes I’m the infamous Ruggarell and have been shitposting /v/ for 7 years straight.

    Follow me if you love my shitposting.

    I wonder how well it will do. Sure BioWare went full on SJW and ME3 pissed a lot of people off yet i still think there are enough people out there who consider a buy.

    Meh, if the game gets great *independent* reviews (i.e. on sites like this one), then wake me up so I can consider this game after the third patch comes out.

    Well,I hold the Necronomicon in very high regard so considering Lovecraft’s racism and xenophobia,it would be highly hypocritical of me to use racism as a reason for not trying something.At the very least I can see how a racist’s mind works.

    Haters can hate all they want. ME:A will will GOTY 2017,Have the best sales,overall reception,a massive fanbase,and will be continued to be sold greatly throughout the year and will be talked about for years to come with a positive mindset while the weebshit and indie games many of you praise will come and go.

    Indeed. As far as I know, Bioware hasn’t even acknowledged that he even made the statements. Condone or Condemn, but don’t pretend it didn’t happen. I know he has the support of some of the upper staff there but has there been a response from anyone in the PR department?

    Basically fuck everything about this game.
    It’s hideous “muh non-attractive realistic looking wuman” protag character.
    It’s openly racist developer.
    Bioware.
    EA.
    Anyone who supports it too.

    A month on, oh boy am I glad I did not buy this. I played around with it on a friend’s PC for a while and the writing and animations are just as dire as reported.
