Remember when KotOR 2's Handmaiden was considered the height of embarrassing pandering in Bioware games?

EARTHMAN TEACH ME HOW TO LOVE
"Mass Effect: Andromeda - ..." This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by EA.
Wow! Is there a history of video game companies serving takedown notices on clips of their games being uploaded or did we just cross a new threshold in video game industry patheticness here?
From what I've been reading online in a few different forums and such, basically there's 2 kinds of people who've played ME:A.
There's the people who got the free trial to make LOL RANDOMZ SILLY NOISE videos making fun of the animations and using the character creator to intentionally make fucked up characters and then declaring the game a disaster after playing it for about an hour or so...
and then there's the people who actually got to the 10-hour limit mark (where the free demo ends) who have much more coherent, nuanced, informed opinions and largely agree that the game, while not really on the same level of tone and quality as the other ME games, is fine, sci-fi, action adventure fare once you get past some of the opening awkwardness and the dodgy facial stuff.
Unfortunately, this game is going to make snowflake/SQW gamers and the usual suspects shit themselves because many reviewers are pointing out that the storyline, where humanity basically strongarms itself all over the galaxy to find a new Earth and fuck anyone who already lives there, is basically a one-dimensional celebration of colonialism. Personally, this doesn't bother me in a sci-fi video game setting, but journalists holding this opinion are undoubtedly going to set off the alt-reich/manbaby brigade something fierce.
Sorry, that wasn't meant to be a reply.
(though, in response, it's weird that EA would be shutting down any videos of the game since they specifically said people could freely stream and post videos from the trial period)
"nuance" should never be in the same sentence as "Mass Effect"
Humans were always shitty in Mass Effect. Remember fucking Ashley "nazi" Williams going off on humanity first rants in the first game?
Someone got triggered it seems up there. ^
Oh and women on the dev team of this game are already being doxxed and harassed online. So....yeah, there's that.
