    Looks like the issue I may be having with the game not launching is to do with the Corsair Utility Engine (v2.x) being installed as I found a YouTube video from someone showing how uninstalling it allows the game to load for them.

    How on earth a mouse/keyboard software app conflicts with the loading of a game is anyone's guess but I do recall seeing this issue mentioned for other games too in the past! I don't want to have to uninstall it to play a game as I use it to enable the lights on my RGB keyboard and mouse!

    *EDIT*
    I backed up my CUE profile and uninstalled the software and, sure enough, ME Andromeda now loads up (and very quickly too since it is installed on my Samsung EVO 850 SSD).

    Unbelievable that the software could affect the game this way and without any warning whatsoever! :bang:

    *sigh*

    I sure hope that's just one off... I'm not really sure if I should blame the animation team or the actors.


    That Addison woman doesn't seem to know how to use makeup. If the results are worse that without it you're doing it wrong. What the hell... She looks like a clown.




    I'm starting to have a feeling that I wasted ~49 €.

    Watch more footage and you'll see more jarringly bad animations. It doesn't get better. I'm waiting for crowbcat's video :p

    Yeah a LOT of these types of software hook into processes and sometimes it ends up conflicting with other running programs or bugs in said software causes other problems.

    CUE allows you to back up profiles directly onto the device itself so I don't keep it running even though I use a Corsair mouse and keyboard just due to problems like this. :)
    (Also CUE 2.11 from a few days ago did some weird stuff with it's PCI driver so that's something they might need to look into for future versions.)

    Logitech has a similar system with their Setpoint software and then there's audio software and much more, lots of little hooks and processes being injected so making it all play nice can be a pain and makes troubleshooting a bit of a personal hell finding out what breaks what and why. :D

    No day 1 patch will ever improve anything as significant as animations. They will remain as they are. 10gb or not, it'll be a "stability and performance" patch.

    Hoping the performance can be improved, Eos is a killer.


    All ultra 1440p, The multiplayer holds a solid 120 fps, no dips.

    Story is constantly up and down, Must be something to do with map size.


    I had another talk with some Bioware peeps again, The info they gave about the game being ran at 4k 60fps with a 1080ti they are now saying was based on mulitiplayer not the story,

    It's not one off, from what I'm seeing either, whole game quality

    Animations are stiff, writing seems poor and voice acting sometimes laughable

    Jeez, i tried a bit the trial, it's horrible. The quality went downhill this time, i can't understand how they managed to do worse than ME3.
    I hope at least that it gets better later, and also a damn Reshade profile for it, since everything feels so plastic, empty.

    That's pretty lame of them...

    Hardly anyone would've cared for this game if it didn't follow up to the trilogy. WTF.
