You can even see them deliberately cut the camera when the coughing starts so you can't even see the character's face properly until he falls down since they've obviously cut/changed the animations drastically in the final product.

It's a shame to see a troubled project like this, especially one that potentially showed some promise, as a new and bright future for the Mass Effect franchise. I've had my beef with the original trilogy, but there was a lot of good stuff in there, so I'm kinda bummed when a big and interesting sci-fi series gets borked like this.

Yeah that went about exactly as I expected. :p

I watched about 5 minutes of the Quick Look and happened to randomly skip to this point. Even knowing this game was kinda broken, I couldn't believe it looks this awful.

Thank you, but yeah, there's basically no difference.

They very clearly had to ditch all the mocap and good faces at last minute and came up with this very cringey solution.

What in the flying...

So, they had a version where the characters actually had animated faces that looked natural. Where the Krogan squeezes on the fruit-pollen-thingy. Where it actually spews some neat looking fumes. And where the guy doesn't look like he went into immediate paralysis on the face.

What platform is this recorded on? Surely they can't have wrecked the fuck out of textures and lightning like that, it has to be ultra-low settings on PC or something.
