fereldanwench: (Misc - Aliens II)
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.
