what is happening gaiz cal we're here

and it is finally time to start

Mass Effect Andromeda man so this game

this poor poor team it's not even fully

out yet and it is already getting

bombarded with memes and criticism and

everything else for goofy animations and

whatnot but it doesn't matter because

it's the Mass Effect kid I'm going to

play the out of it anyway so yes

let's do this

setting chugging a couple things here ok

subtitles are on

Hey okay that looks good

customize a character so welcome to the

customization episode this is anything

like dragon age it'll probably be 30

minutes of me making a character that's

that's very very possible

I mean gotta make sure you look good for

all those boobs cutscenes you know what

I mean

all right shoes appearance custom

they're wise or even a low time the

students blue eyes that'll be our base

first thing that I do is fix this arrow

think I think that's the closest I'm

going to get to a mohawk here


how Mohawk it is make it kind of kind of

look like me let's go for the

brownish-blond beards these are not

beards this is like scruff why is it

calling these beards you know for real

somebody slapped Bioware right now these

that none of these are beards and what

is this who did why why would you do

this it looks like you were shaving and

you were like let me just my

up and just went straight across or the

big-ass Ray's or god it looks

stupid or these these aren't even good

cyber and it's like hockey pucks from

the side here or hockey sticks from the

side of your face they don't even see it

into the rest of your hair correctly oh

man this game it's game we're not we're

just starting and already I'm getting

soul shoes

all right skin tone let's give them a

little bit of a tan there we go six is

Watch video from 03:00 - 6:00


she typed

okay so I going to freely go between

this in some depth

oh it be

there we go

we're just going to leave those default

bail let's do put down a little bit



okay eyes I'm fine with the color of the

eyes no we don't need makeup let's check

out the scars even these scars look bad

what is this lens look like somebody hit

my face like they drove over it with

like a chain-link fence or something

what what leaves a scar like that and

why are there scratches why am I being

scratched by a tiger in space you got

this this looks like like that just

straight looks like I'd rub my face

against concrete or something or these

scars are bad I don't even know what

Watch video from 06:00 - 9:00

happened here it looks like you had a

salted by Forks oh and then I have

tribal tattoos these are these are not

scars those are those are tribal tattoos

I think we're going to pass on the scar

I'm guessing yep of course all the

tattoos are slapped on top of my face

because that's what I would want to get

is a tattoo straight down the middle of

my face that's that's good so your neck

tat is fine but like for real if you

were going out play get groceries and

you saw somebody with this you'd be like

I'm sorry but you look

why did you put digitised camo paint

down your face in a big strip that does

not look good

the neck tat doesn't look too bad but

why does he have skull like what why why

do you have skull face tattoos does not

call a duty

alright training this is important so I

can console shot turbocharge comment but

Ness throw singularity and barrier I do

like Bionic technician is pretty fun

though - I mean usually overloading

incinerate combo people Bayesian hacking

opponent's armor and team support leader

energy drain as badass I remember that

from me3 violation team support sounds

like the new Vanguard charge combat

finesse in charge again

tactical cloak combat finesse and more

tactical cloaks damn like I really like

the you can do is technician like

blown away shields and whatnot is

awesome but mitotic detonations are

crazy I do like the sound of

this annihilation thing we have a

shifting mass of Mass Effect fields

around you to slowly damage nearby foes

but I don't think I want something

around me so I'm gonna go biotic biotics

are badass Scott Rider you know that's

we're not named Scott I'm going to go

actually I'm saying I thought a cowboy

rider sounds kind of gay like I'm riding


they call me cowboy Rider fighting

cowboy rider no doesn't fit

cowboy Ryder at just I don't think that

works only that works we're gonna go for

my name bill bill Ryder this is my twit

Watch video from 09:00 - 12:00

with this super derpy looking face I

mean like I actually doesn't look too

bad she however we're gonna need to fix

her up as the default looks

horrendous alright this one has blue

eyes so we can say that's a twin let's

let's fix her up a bit here alright so

your skin tone I don't know why you're

so dark let's pull you down to like 15

let's pull your brow down a little bit

and the depth we got calm we're trying

out we're trying to fix you up brownback

good our cheeks let's oh no no she

doesn't need to look like she was eating

with Hansel and Gretel all day these

giant puppy cheeks the female models in

this game are kind of wonky like the

male model looked pretty good but hers

eyes look like she's got like acne all

over her face and like a ton the

oil she has his deadpan stare like she's

like I don't want to be here

my brother dragged me along or go to

spice what the bio a give us give

us like decently looking female models

I think there's a female models just do

not look very good you feel like lower

the height of her eyes a little bit on

the depth I don't know like I'm trying

to fix this deadpan look of my twin but

it's not it's not going away she says

this look on her face like she has no

to give she's like I don't want to

be here I don't even like space I'm just

here because my dad said I had to go

Idol it's so gigantic

like I don't I seriously don't get why

our face is so oily hang on

maybe it's maybe it's like makeup maybe

it's a makeup no you don't need eyeliner

you don't need eyes shadow we're going

to space battles you don't need this

you don't need lipstick you don't need

blush actually maybe we can give

her blush maybe that will fix the the oh

no it just goes on her cheeks it doesn't

it doesn't help the terrible oiliness of

her skin at all poor this poor girl

she's it were way in the future in space

Watch video from 12:00 - 15:00

and she still has quite possibly the

world's oiliest skin apparently and they

did not make proactive in face we got to

pull that chin back a bit at scheana's

and even the hairstyles are kind of beta

a little disappointing Bioware for a

game that's all about the story and the

relationships between people

you sure are kind of boning my character

creation here buddy I'll do the ponytail

ponytail the simple yet effective one

can't go wrong with the ponytail

all right now they actually look like

they could be related so let's make her

a little bit more pale because she

doesn't get a lot of Sun that's that's

why her skin is so oily she doesn't get

Sun at all I died to save that I'm not I

don't think I did know I did or good all


customize the history of the male

Shepherd yes I think I think we're ready

all right let's do it

trying to remember if I played the other

games on insanity it's been a long time

I got when the Mass Effect 3 come out

actually I think it came out like I

think I played through that I was like

right before I really started the

channel so I've been like four years

four years ago I think now we can always

increase it up let's let's do a hardcore

and if I decide to bump it up a bit 10

sanity then we'll do that then

yeah 14 minutes and we're just now

starting great

every great moment in our history began

with a dream

each bold leap forward was achieved by

those willing to do anything to attain

it we are all of us leaving behind

families homes the very birthplace of

our species some for discovery to see

Watch video from 15:00 - 18:00

the unknown others for a new start

but today whatever our reasons we take

the first steps toward a new future for


today we begin to make our dream reality


20 185 and we still can't fix oil faces

and acne feels bad man

634 years later

to have a long journey

I'm guessing everyone was on that cry of

asleep or something

otherwise they have been making babies

for a long time on that ship

they're coming the craziest thing about

sci-fi like this is that you know

everyone's in cryostasis if something

goes wrong they're all just like

they're all done these are all you're

gonna want take it easy

I've been taking didi for 600 years

initiative evaluate thousands of

potential habitable planets within the

after discovering an unusually high

ratio potential candidates for golden

world the Helios cluster was selected as

our destination now you are a part of

the first wave of arks arriving in

Andromeda our new home for Humanity

illogical casual professional that's the

professional this is casual

adventure before we settled that well

what this about my implant a routine

check after being in stasis we want to

make sure the connection is still life

as the team's mission computer your

well-being is my primary concern

assuming the implants work as advertised

Sam sees what you see in theory we won't

know for sure until we get you in the

field how are you feeling otherwise I'm

ready to get through it

readings confirmed I detect an increased

levels of adrenaline in your system the

neural implant is functioning properly

caffeine always did make me jumpy you're

all done let's get you on your way there

you may want to hang around while we

revive your sister it always helps to be

as mini effective

I don't like the sound of that

well maybe if this ship wasn't flying it

threw a bunch of

what time just hang on piloting this

Watch video from 21:00 - 24:00

thing this is Cora I'm at the Cryobank

she's gonna be stuck in a box for the

whole game I'll be kind of pissed what's

wrong I don't know have to check it out

right it's my sister okay

darris fine her vitals are strong but

the revival procedure was interrupted

when can you wake up we don't want to

rush it yeah my connection is there an

implant was defended however her pulse

respiration and brain activity's role to

be on the safe side we'll need to keep

her in a low-level coma for a while then

let her body regain consciousness


she'll be fine glad to hear it thanks

Lexi keep it updated

writer I'll wait for you at the door

when it sounds like everything is

perfectly fine why we go to this whole

process of jr. hate it

hell of a wake up ah very much thanks to

you ready

I mean I'm not where's where's the

where's the poop run Oh what thing I

almost got it thing I almost got the

poop run right you can find it she has a

good job Ryder now we can get to the

hey why is it that I just woke up

Watch video from 24:00 - 27:00

and everything on this ship is already

going to barely in Andromeda and

we're already scrambling the adventure

begins not sure your dad will see it

that way

go ahead

come control report we're drifting

flight controls aren't responding first

priority is stopping these outages

midnight powers but not that we're on

reserve captain they won't last

what's our position unknown we lost

telemetry Sam we need eyes out there

attempting to a job sensor array Alec

please you may be Pathfinder but this is

my ship captain the protocols clear in

the absence of communication with the

Nexus of the other arcs we proceed to

our appointed golden world solid ground

if it's even out there nobody said

anything about running into an energy

cloud and that's just a wild guess what

we hit

hours I need to assess the damage stop

the bleeding

we've got 20,000 people asleep on this

ship let's give them a chance to wake up

can you blame her

my father's got a point though solid

ground sounding pretty good right now

yeah pretty good isn't good enough yes


well coming through like how the dad has

blue eyes just like me and the twin my

god is that our world

that's habitat seven new earth if we're


all of our long-range scans told us it

was in the green zone perfect for human

settlement it doesn't even look the same

yeah it looks bad she's right it looks

pretty dicey from here

are we sure about those scans it's a

good question things can change it's

been 600 years

Sam the energy from the phenomena

jumping off fences sanitary conditions

are all here we're marooned 20,000 Souls

adrift at sea when the power runs out

and stays out we need to know if that's

safe harbor and if it's not as bad

Watch video from 27:00 - 30:00

finder it'll be my job to find an

alternative what we trained for but if

this goes well we are already home

all right just make it quick Harper the

rest of the team should be awake by now

haven't spent up to shuttles planetfall

at 30 yes sir

I mean that planet does look kind of

sketchy stubborn one isn't he your guess

is as good as mine

we may be related but I still haven't

figured him out just as long as he knows

what he's doing it's not like the

Cavalry's coming to save the day I need

an ETA on our sensor repairs

we're blind out here I don't know what

it is about mass effect games and every

time I make a character it's like I

think they look good and character

creation and then I get out and they

have like ridiculously like their

cheekbones are like super pronounced I

get it in her blood

she beat me into the world by one minute

couldn't wait to get started

well don't worry I'm sure Sarah will

pull through when she does she's got a

long story so let's get out there and

find herself right you'll want to get

your helmet that's a good luck rock

before we go

the what it's an old superstition of

your dad telogen ilium isn't first

contact protocols we strictly observe

principles of peace and cooperation

among our highest ideals aggressive

action ancestor Tricia uncle in hospital

it clearly demonstrated you're at risk

of injury or death

grass in the party huh sorry

was mountain climbing back on another

sense educate alkali feldspar quartz

commonly there in the granite just a big

granite rock got it you doing the

Pathfinder is now requiring spied on

other side of the door no problem

but I've teeth that brought the plier

yeah I come out my stuff

your sisters strong she'll make it she

better Sarah wouldn't want us to worry

because of her you're right the mission

comes first though I doubt your mother

would have seen it that way I promised

her I'd get you to here safely okay team

listen up

I chose each of you for the Pathfinder

team not just because you're talented

and passionate but because you're

dreamers like me we dream of exploring

the unknown finding the edge of the map

and then discovering what lies beyond

when people look back on this and they

will they'll remember we didn't give up

we kept dreaming that our first few

faltering steps in Andromeda with the

beginning of everything they know we

only get one chance to be first

  1. what the fuck? the whole start feels like a terrible soap opera! shitty nonesense dialogues, unfitting face acting and all the drama out of nothing shit…
    and that crash to a huuuge something?! sensors scrambled…christ, they clearly see it before them on the bridge! and why is everyone running over the bridge like nervous dogs? oh and yeah of course after 630years in cryo sleep and a stright facecrash they have to argue about their competence

  2. Is it just me or does anybody else think that Cora looks like Darshelle Stevens? Maybe she becomes your waifu later on in the game too, that would be pretty awesome.

  3. Android actors pretending to be human is what the cut-scenes remind me of. Just terrible acting. Like, either they used horrible actors or they didn't use facial capture to animate the faces and just kinda wung it.

  4. they could put a few more months or at least a year working on it and i still havent playing i got friends telling me the face animations suck come on bio why slacked with the new mass effect

  5. I guess the only reason I don't hate this game is because I never picked up the original series (rather tried and failed). But this character creation feels like it's from ps2. I don't understand how Saints Row 3 can do it so well almost a decade ago and developers are still struggling with it. My character looks just like his and I chose Biotic too, it's stupid. Thank God I only rented it for a day.

  6. I have you to thank for getting me to play Nioh, which I have to go back and play, but I look forward to new series on your channel and looking forward to seeing if this game is worth it. I just started watching this. I like to wait til you come out with at least 20-30 episodes before watching it because I love to marathon them. thanks cowboy, keep on fighting.

  7. My biggest complaint about this game is the voice actors and the animations of landing on planets and taking off the voice actors are robots with no human emotion
