    I was worried Andromeda would cut into my Zelda time but seeing all the negative early access reviews I don't think it will be a problem lolz.

    I plan to get Andromeda. I play games similar to how I watch TV so there will be enough time for Mass Effect and Zelda.

    So, do I vote if I was never planning on purchasing it in the first place?

    Whoa. Listen, I do not pirate games, and I'm rather sore about the people who do, further driving the industry towards desperately fighting against hacking/homebrew, anti-consumer DRM, and the like. No, I just never really liked Mass Effect.

    EDIT: Oh, there's an option like that now. I mean, I wouldn't call ME crap, but it never really got me engine goin', if you know what I mean.

    LOL never said you did, just mentioned that I forgot to add those 2 options to the list which I have subsequently done now so go vote for "Never intended to buy this crap anyway".

    And being an advocate for "trying before you buy", if all games had a demo then I don't think people would be forced to pirate games. It is the "industry" itself that created this phenomenon by selling crap software that people can't return. Good thing Steam realized this as you can now return games on Steam if you do not like them. But this is a discussion for another thread.

    I'm actually very much for the "try before you buy" method as well, even though I don't indulge, and I definitely recognize just how much the industry is responsible for making piracy a more attractive option, as well as that the severity of the piracy problem is likely very overblown by them. And yeah, not the place for it, but I just wanted to put that out there.

    Given Mass Effect is a shit series it's great to see it finally getting reviews more akin to its quality.
