    Pass. £54.99 seems a bit steep for a game series I completed many a years ago. And nothing new, at least anything that appeals to me.

    And they couldn't be bothered to pack Andromeda, even though it was not rated high, it was the only game in the series I've not played. Guess it's beyond reprieve.

    I think it's a fair price considering most sales will probably be a while after release when the price will come down, and most people buying it around release time will either be hardcore fanboys or people who haven't played the game at all. £55 for a new game is pretty typical let alone 3 new games. Admittedly it's disappointing that people who own the old games won't automatically get it for free like is common with most remasters.

    Andromeda was released in 2017 so already has the enhancements that were given in the remasters, and it's not part of the original trilogy. That said if it would help sales across the board it probably would've been worth it to include it.

    I will happily pay 54.99 for a Mass Effect Remastered Trilogy with all the DLC.

    It is EA, it is fail.

    Re: EA to launch Mass Effect Legendary Edition on 14th May

    It's a reasonable price for all three, in UHD... But not if you've already bought them.
    I'd hope for a hefty discount, upon production of a valid proof of purchase/gifting.

    Re: EA to launch Mass Effect Legendary Edition on 14th May

    There is 2 easy ways of making the next battlefield sell better than 5.

    1/ dont go woke and ram it in our faces expecting us to just lap it up.
    2/ Dont have some idiot community manager tell everyone "if you dont like our game, dont buy it"

    simples. Just produce a good fun, balanced, politic free game and I will happily buy it.

    I will wait for reviews. Don't wanna buy something that is extremely buggy and broken on release.

    I've long been a member of House Biscuit ("We Do Not Pre-Order!"), but I've now reached the point where not only do I inist on wait for reviews, but also waiting another 6-12 months to find out if the inevitable bugs are going to be patched out, and make sure that microtransactions are not going to be patched *in.*

    I'm pretty sure this means that I'm no longer part of the AAA game industry's target audience.

    Well there's that, or stop rehashing the same old theme each time. About time 2142 was added too, I'd probably buy it then.

    Re: EA to launch Mass Effect Legendary Edition on 14th May

    Given the whole point of releasing this tribology is to make people forget about Andromeda before they release the next Me game I can see why its not included.

    As for Battlefield, I can't see how you can make a war game non-political.

    It would take a lot more than a texture pack and reshader to make Andromeda a good game

    Totally. I don't want to play ME1 ever again, my memories of it are too fond. The last part was really exciting at the time. I know I won't like it too much if I play it again... and I don't want to spoil that nostalgic feeling.
