I - uh. Geez. I honestly prefer the original. The lighting and color grading is more interesting and enhances the mood/atmosphere really well. The remake has more realistic lighting, but it just looks... flat and generic. At least they updated the character models and textures, that part looks better.

I like how this is clearly much more than just a texture update, they are actually really putting work on the engine and making the cohesive experience Mass Effect always deserved,

For those complaining about the graphics being sterile, there will 100% be a ReShade made on Day 0 to bring it back to exactly the way you guys want, so no worries there.

Made me want to play the trilogy again. But I will not pay what they are charging for a remaster. I've already downloaded the 3 games on ps3, and the graphic is good enough for my taste

In the majority of the comparisons, I thought the original looked better. By a lot. Sometimes the new textures were nice, but at 1:11 in the video... unnecessary boob-clothing-texture whatever it'd be called. The original looked natural, the remake looks like a fan wanting to sexify some more by having the latex-suit look and over-use of cloth folds in the texture that just look silly. that 1:11 part *really* annyoed me actually >_>

    only 22lbs total tho - how much can you really exercise with that?

    I'm a pretty weak guy and even I use 50lb on each side for dumbbell bench and 30lb for each arm with dumbbell curl
    Gift
  • x65943 @ x65943:
    imo without at least a 30lbs dumbbell you won't get a lot of use out of em - and these max out at like 10lbs for each arm

  • x65943 @ x65943:
    oh I see you actually get to pick which set you want - so you could buy the 88 lb one

    I'd rather just have my own equipment instead of not knowing whose sweaty balls were on it

  • x65943 @ x65943:
    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    You aren't going to the right gym if you need to wear clothes

    Ball sweat drops down like normal sweat if your balls are always dry I'd recommend a doctor
