  • Cinematic instead of gameplay focus
  • Spring release without a solid date still
  • Male Ryder back in marketing focus
  • Beginning of trailer is dark and hard to make out
Meh. That's what they wanted me to wait for? What a joke.

Ryder's got nothing on Sheploo. Looks like I'll be utilizing the CC for the first time in the series

Really dislike the way they are marketing this. Nothing but weird alien technology and explosions. None of it has me interested.

Its funny they are calling it a "gameplay reveal" as if that 4K clip they showed on sony's event never happened. lol

And yeah, too bad all that talk of female ryder being up and front was basically bullshit from bioware. She is totally MIA from everything.

Wow so much hype and again no real gameplay? What a disappointment, seems like they are try to hide the game far too long

That was very cinematic. Maybe too cinematic.

Still hyped as fuck though, but give me the gameplay trailer already, damn it.

Gameinformer has some articles up about it. From the trailer + what they're writing about the Ryder family it seems likely that they're going to kill of the father.
I really hope that this is not going to be a DA2 case where you just won't really care.

Nothing screams new right now. They are having a hard time pulling this together right now. Generic hero fights generic villain, it's all so dull

Great...

Another cinematic trailer with the focus on the male lead. Thanks?

The cinematic part and lack of actual gameplay doesn't really inspire much confidence that we're going to see this in that "Spring 2017" window they put out there.

And I don't think we've seen the female lead since, what, the very first reveal? Bleh.

I dunno, y'all. I want it to be story-centric. I didn't want a gameplay trailer. Not yet. I mean, ideally we'd have had plenty of both by now -- and the game, too -- but narrative's why I play.

That's it?

Expected a bit more from their oh so celebrated "N7 DAY ON NOVEMBER 7TH YEAH MASS EFFECT WOOOOOO!"

And they are saving shit up of course for the Game Awards. Next time a marketing person start spouting some shit about a random date like "May the 4th be with you" or "N7 day November 7th" you just take the biggest shoe you can find within 2 meters and start shoving that down their throat.

Why the hell did Bioware hype N7 Day if we have to wait another month for gameplay? Instead, we got a badly edited, bland "cinematic" trailer.

Lol, so much for FemRyder. Guyder looks pretty bad (if that's the default, at least).

Trailer didn't look all bad, though I'm seriously hoping that when we get gameplay it doesn't turn out to be anything like DA:I's empty open-esque maps.

edit: Also, +1 for delay if they still don't have a date. At the very least, there must be some significant things going on under the hood.

Dude Ryder being the face of the game is disappointing, but at least I think he's better looking than the default Shepard, so might use him and not customise, unless I can just make him ginger.

New aliens look super generic and like Collectors 2.0 from what little we see if them.

Boo to them making either the protaganists and/or humans special super duper awesome snowflakes again by the sounds of it.

Other than that. Yeah, that was by the numbers dramatic Sci Fi action. Roll on the game awards and hopefully a slice of the actual important part of the game: plot and character interaction!

They gave very little clue of what to expect.
Gameplay or story wise.

This. Super disappointing. The two or so seconds of gameplay against the giant thing were pretty cool, but overall super meh.

Even the narrative so far is generic as hell though.

Looks fine but I think the best description for it is generic. Definitely getting Inquisition vibes.
