The first few hours of the game seemed very disjointed in that you and your party would talk about things that you couldn't possibly know yet. You reference Angaran shuttles before even meeting the Angara... when you land on their world you're completely unsurprised that they're there...

One that's really been bothering me is that the codex AND all of the characters reference Aya as a garden world even though its obviously a giant wasteland with one little green city on it. There isn't one single reference to the barren hellscape outside the city in the game so far. Ryder will frequently talk to NPC's about other NPC's that you haven't even met yet. Seems like the writing in this game is way lazier than the past 3. Not that I don't enjoy the game... I'm about 20 hours in and I've only completed two planets because of all of the side stuff. Just wish they had... done better... lol

This....Hell it feels like the writers of this game were casual fans of the ME series and only new a few details of the lore.

Yet these people were tasked with the game??

Yeah that's what the writers of this game thought too, what with all the lore contradictions and cheesy dialogue. Maybe you wrote for the game?

>.<

Bad writing is trivial? The script of a game like ME:A is the most important aspect. If the script had been even AVERAGE, a lot of the other issues in the game wouldn't have mattered to a lot of the game's detractors.

They put more effort into virtue-signalling about identity politics than into the writing, unfortunately.

Once I heard the asari talk about gender pronouns I knew the game was in trouble.

I'm curious -- when did this happen? Because there are some issues with...well, I wouldn't really call it "sequence breaking" in the traditional sense, but there's a definite sense that event flags were programmed poorly. I had several emails arrive out of order (especially getting emails about Jaal before he was part of the crew).
