I've been reading (trying to avoid spoilers)
And apparently the facial animations are terrible
Anyone with the origin/EA access got any opinions on it? No plot spoilers please
Really the facial animations would make you regret the purchase of a mass effect game? The trilogy had way worse facial animations or lack there of.
I remember how funky the faces were in the first one. And I don't regret my purchase but it just made me a little wary. I don't like pre orders but I love bioware games.
I dunno I'll still enjoy it, but if they're that bad they can break immersion..
They're pretty much unchanged from the original games, they just look worse because the rest of the game looks better.
there are a few characters that look like they just went through a botox operation, it's hardly noticeable because it's only a few seconds at most
BioWare has been aware of some issues with the facial animations for a while, and they've been working to make them smoother, the eventual updates beyond the confirmed Day One patch likely having something to do about them besides fixes in that first patch. Honestly, how I look at this, this isn't Quantic Dreams, so the facial animations aren't going to be the absolute best. The same people yelling about the animations tend to also yell about the character models, which aren't bad at all, so I think disinterested parties are leading the hate, and others have really high expectations. I'm expecting an awesome experience, which is definitely loose in interpretation and likely to be met.
As long as it doesn't have ride to hell: retribution animations it will be fine.
They had some flaws. But that just makes me love it even more. I have noticed some put off by it. But the entire series has had similar problems. In some ways the facial features got way better and at some points way worse. Still so excited to play
I haven't played it yet, but from what I've seen in the hate posts it's not that bad - weird sometimes, sure.
ME has always been about the experience for me, not the graphics. I'm still hyped!
They're on-par with the original trilogy, they just look more out of place due to being in a engine like Frostbite 3. They're still better than Inquisitions imo. Still have nightmares about Mother Giselle....
What do you think?
