It soured the experience to see the most generic default protagonist of all time as the center of the trailer and marketing. It's disheartening to see Bioware continue the tradition.

The music was also incredibly underwhelming.

So since female Ryder was meant to be a big part of marketing.... are we ever actually going to see her?
Still targeting spring which is comforting.

The fact they are still being vague and saying "Spring" and not "march" is less comforting.

Game informer is probably today so we will get a ton of info.

Those potential boss battles against those gigantic tentacle things!!!!!!!!!! Amazing

Cinematic trailer? Really? Game was announced 3 years ago and we still don't have more than 3 minutes of gameplay.

Disappointed with this reveal. I got the feeling of "it fucking nothing". They could save the explosions and the drama for the game. I wanted a little more substance.

Sure looks pretty, but this is going to be further removed from an RPG than ME3 isn't it?

Still day one

They used the most generic boring model for the main character. Looks high school.

Are we supposed to be getting a release date today? I really can't see it being spring if they're still not even showing gameplay.

I've been saying this for awhile now but nobody believed it. "Wait for N7 day for them to show the game off!" If that's showing the game off then I'll see you all next fall.

I thought we already saw her in that one video they showed at... I think it was this year's E3? That's no excuse for not showing her in this trailer, of course, but it's not like we haven't seen her at all.

Well, that was a whole load of meh.

Hope we change up Blandy Mcgee, Christ he couldn't look more generic.

Hey look, almost nothing.

I have pretty low expectations for this game, and I can't be alone. Maybe show what it actually is to get people like me excited?

Not the greatest trailer. The editing and the music make it look a bit bland.

Still hype for the gameplay reveal whenever that happen

6. They said female Ryder would be the focus for marketing, but all we have seen so far is the pretty boy male Ryder. :/

No, they said that they'll focus on both. Until the maketing is over we can't say how much of that promise will hold true

I am down for more scifi games, and thankfully you can customize your avatar, but how the hell did they manage such a generic protagonist.
Will wait for more footage / info before getting exciting for this one.

I seriously hope someone will post a youtube tutorial on how to make Shepards face in Andromeda.
