If I wanted to play Eurojank, I'd play a Eurojank game. God damnit Bioware...

I don't remember DA:I having nearly as much jank and bad animations as ME:A.

Is this easily fixable? Or are we more or less stuck with this terrible animations? Man I wanted to like this game.

There seems to be a fundamental problem with the way they did faces and facial animation rigs in the videos I've watched, but the quality varies. They'd have to go through every single frame. You might be better off asking for a new game, unless Bioware Montreal has some easily implementable secret magic animation technology that I've never heard about. It would probably be a band-aid to the animations if they made better eyes at the very least.

That "my face is tired" clip is actually unbelievable. I cannot believe it's in the game.


It looks like the line was added after they realized how bizzarely expressionless the facial animation was, despite her being annoyed with Ryder's grammar and indifference to
her father's death
.

" I am sorry I can't emote properly, my face is tired ".

What is wrong with the female character model in this game? It's like a bunch of straight dudes were like, "We don't want to make her too attractive," and instead turned her into a beautiful cartoon dinosaur.

I would like to think that these are small parts of the game, taken in isolation, but in the grand scheme of the game as a whole, they are probably less noticeable.

Still funny though.

I thought the mouth movement was sub-par in Horizon, but this is like watching Muppets talk.

What? Muppets have superiour sync and more expression compared to this. It seems broken... I have no idea how and why they think this would be okay.

I think what makes it worse is that the environments in this game look absolutely stellar. So its hard to contrast that with these barbie/ken doll models.

This game is bringing up bad memories.

A Youtuber named xletalis did a comparison of dialogue animations yesterday contrasting ME1 to Andromeda.


When I keep saying that I think the Trilogy looked better in this regard, so many fans keep telling me it was just nostalgia and to replay the games.

I point out that I AM replaying ME1 right now and my wife just wrapped up ME3 last month, so it's fresh in our minds, and so many keep telling me that I'm just having selection bias.

... No, no, I think the game from 10 years ago looks better with dialogue animation, by far.
Even the actual aliens and androids acted more human.

I remember in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy novels that there was a civilization that convinced all the stupid, ugly, and defected people that the planet was going to explode, loaded them up into a colony ship and sent them away. This must be that ship.
