I had initially planned on getting Andromeda on its release, but I think I might actually hold off for a while.

My PC surpasses the minimum requirements, but just barely--I had anticipated it'd be around this time that I'd have to do some upgrades if I want to keep pushing for peak performances. My video card is still decent, and if I upgrade my motherboard, BF has an extra card of the same model which means I can get some SLI action going on. I also want to go ahead and upgrade from an i5 to an i7 processor. Skimming NewEgg, it looks like I should plan on somewhere between $400-$600. Frankly, I think I'd rather save the $60 on MEA and put it towards that.

Although I've had a bit of a nostalgic urge to play ME1 one again (it was around this time in 2013 when I first played it), I'm not really feeling that much hype for MEA, to be honest. Plus I still need to finish ME3.

I'm still not totally sure how to handle the alleged leaked info re: Liam and his sexuality. It could be bad or incomplete info, but with BW's history (especially looking at how Cassandra handles turning down a female Inquisitor), I'm inclined to err on the side of critical. I don't know what the compulsion is behind giving a gender-locked LI that specific rejection. Maybe they thought it would be a kinder letdown, in the vein of a "it's not you, it's me" explanation? Obviously didn't think that one through.

I might cave after seeing other people get hyped about it--I didn't have plans on paying full price for Fallout 4 and did anyway--But as of right now... I think it's a soft pass.

Personally I'm waiting until it comes out and the wank subsides. Like, besides my buyer's remorse over DAI, the wait up until final release - as well as the wank that followed regarding a number of issues regarding the game itself - was way too god damn stressful for me to be paying full price. Would rather remain oblivious to everything pertaining to MEA until after everyone else has played it and the game inevitably drops to $15 on Origin after a year.
