"Rises to save Humanity"

Is there anything less interesting after every game/film ever has done this?

Why do we have to save humanity again? I mean, can't they think of a story without main character being the chosen one?

Hype anyway tho...

Definitely a 'wait for reviews' for me after both 2 and 3 disappointed. Artstyle looks on point though, I like the slight style tweaks they've shown off so far.

Yay, more bizarrely masturbatory "Humans are the best!!!".

I still have high hopes for this game. I expect them to be expertly dashed though.

That jacket on the Asari is pretty dumb
I can see this game is going to be filled with "the same but different" familiar designs. We've already got the 'Not-Normandy' and Ryder there is wearing 'Not-Shepard-Armour'. Wish they would have been a bit more inventive and different with their designs.

Holy shit that design for Asari was final iteration of her, wasn't it? That is some bad design. Jeans and short cut shirt for space exploration sounds good, yes?

Comedic relief character that I hopefully can lock away into some closet.

I hope the Dad is a squad mate considering he's basically the face of the marketing. Or at least I hope I can get his armor off his corpse or something.

Edit: or is that the mom? Regardless I want that damn armor. I'm not hoping Ryder's parents die so I can get their armor. Look at what you've done to me BioWare.

HUMANITY, FUCK YEAH!

Aren't we supposed to colonize a goddamn galaxy in this one?

In any case... Finally!

Echoing that "save humanity" is a dumb ass line.

There's a universe of awesome alien creatures out there, but it's always about the damn humans. Or like the most humanoid possible alien.

The first reveal video had to have been the single worst videogame reveal of all time.

They better actually put some effort into the next one.

Now what's the next step in your master plan?

Now there is a race of only female aliens but they're green and even hotter than the Asari.

I think anyone with half a brain could have called this one.

Why is everyone doubting that?

EA has been goal in saying it will be a short marketing campaign and they've been saying Q1 for a looong time now.
EA exec just said that they were open to delaying it weeks or even, quote, "five months".

I think it's just Ryder becoming an N7 in the course of the game.

What? ME2 dissapointed you? Damn, I could understand 3, but the second one was great! Building team was awesome :)
