I just got a email from them not that long ago showing they just put Wrex up for pre-order... So it doesn't seem dead yet..

As for Andromeda, yeah it was average at best... A huge let down compared to the original Mass Effect games.... The story fell flat and the direct port from the consoles was a really bad, at least back when Bioware ported Mass Effect over they tweak it so it felt natural to play on the PC... Another weak point is the animated facial muscles are horrible and don't sync up very well when there talking. The only thing better was the face textures but when their mouths are not moving correctly it's like putting lipstick on a pig.

I was worried it was going to fail when all the original people from Bioware had left before Andromeda went into production... EA is famous for destroying companies..... They put out crap to try and milk the reputations of the company they just bought.

It wouldn't matter if all the people were there or not, it wasn't made by the real bioware studio, just a spinoff named bioware that did the mp and some dlc stuff.

The real Bioware studio died when the founders and most of their talented team left.... which was shortly after EA bought them out.

Same thing happened with Blizzard when Activision bought them out.

Considering how popular this line has been i don't think they'll stop yet, especially when the Dragon Age line continues and is nowhere near as popular.

I'd imagine they'd do a Shepard at some point no?

Regardless, bioware didn't make this game so you can't really tell if it'd be good or not. I thought Inquistion was pretty ---- so I doubt it but v0v.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

The problem with merchandising is that it's heavily dependant on the popularity of the original IP. The longer this company takes to bring these products to market, the less likely they are to generate enough sales to justify further development and investment.

With computer gamers continuing to be very fickle in their interests and tastes, and with statue buyers continuing to be heavily focused on comic book themes and characters, I'm concerned there won't be more than a handfull of diehards propping this line of statues up.

Now add to that Gamingheads deteriorating quality control.......Well, you do the maths

I hope it's not the end, but I get the sneaking suspicion that were approaching it. It does seem to be one of their more popular lines though so...

Personally, I think they do the Fem Shep they already designed for and I think it's a crap shoot after that. Just my gut feeling.

I know it's a long shot, but I'm hoping for Legion before the line is done.

Don't think this line is abandoned yet. For a gaming series we already have Garrus, Liara, Mordi, Tali, Thane and Wrex. That is already 6... Not bad. Not a lot of companies are making 6 or more statues in the same line... not even regarding DC or Marvel.

I pulled the trigger on Tali today, hope she’s in good shape. My favorite character from the games.
