      Update on themes   07/30/2017

      Thanks to some hard work from @Emblazon, the themes should all be functioning as expected again, with some enhancements/cleanups that he's put in. Please let us know if you spot anything that still seems to be amiss so that we can take care of it.

  1. This is the candidate who fixed the violence in Chicago in just one week. Building Apple plants in the U.S. should be a complete cakewalk for him.
  2. Sweet, I was waiting for a sale on Slime Rancher since I can't really justify paying full price on it given my backlog. This works too!
  3. They are thinking of the children, as in "hey kids, buy a PS4 or PS4 Pro!".
  4. I didn't get dropped off in the Mako in ME anywhere near as often as I flew to different planets and systems in ME:A, but your point is taken. Playing through ME:A the first time, you have no idea how many of those fetch quests you had to do. If you didn't do them, would you be under-leveled and get annihilated in later fights because you didn't level up your characters or didn't have enough money to buy better gear? There was no way to know unless you did them and maxed out. I agree ME:A did have some good fetch quests but the vast majority of them were garbage, so much so they threw them into their own section in the codex. Drop the garbage ones with no storyline or consequences around them and I'd have been much happier. Maybe I'm not playing the same RPGs you are, but fetch quests never felt as boring to me as they did in ME:A and I say this as someone who got all but one achievement in the Xbox 360 version Skyrim and put several hundred hours into that game and never felt bored.
  5. There's a vocal contingent of people who think that longer automatically equals better--for example, all the people bitching about how short 20-30 hours to beat the original Mass Effect was. Take out all the pointless filler that doesn't actually add anything and ME:A is literally half as long. EA added all that filler to make their game longer in an attempt to say "Andromeda's got more than 100 hours of gameplay!" when a huge portion of that is fetch quests and other boring shit.
  6. IIRC, that skip button was added in the first patch--I probably wouldn't have finished the game without it. The fact that they could add the skip button only proves the animations were there to pad the game length and not (for example) to hide load times.
  7. It's like you read my mind. I started playing after the first patch and enjoyed the storyline and gameplay overall but the pacing was truly awful. I honestly think my opinion of the game would have gone up a full letter grade if the developers didn't load the game up with absolutely pointless fetch quests--you could probably complete 20% of them and still have a fully maxed out Ryder and squad if my game experience was any indication). IMO the writing wasn't great but it wasn't the dumpster fire some people made it out to be either.
  8. Trump plans to respond LIVE to Comey hearing via tweets.

    If this somehow comes to pass, there's gonna profanities coming out of DC that have never been uttered in the entire history of humankind.
  9. I present to you the Nintendo Switch Voice Chat setup

    I came in expecting a picture of a smartphone set to its speakerphone setting or possibly using a BT headset. I'm not disappointed that this third party's result is even more complex than that.
  10. Whelp... That Was Fast. New Dragon Age Coming

    This seems to be the new Bioware way. This is EXACTLY how I felt about ME:A, a game I generally liked more than most (though admittedly I didn't start playing until the first patch came out). Cut out most of the insultingly repetitive fetch quests and my opinion of the game would have improved significantly.
  11. DONNIE GETTING SCARED

    Or a medium rare steak.
  12. Over/under on his bringing up how he won the electoral vote to an audience that couldn't give two shits about that?
