The sex in Mass Effect Andromeda will be “pretty good”

It’s often been said that sex between two people is a beautiful experience and downright fantastic when shared between six others according to my granddad who may have visited one too many discos in the 1970s. That being said, sex is still pretty much the driving force behind everything today, with alcohol adverts doing their damndest to convince you that a glass of vodka will make you more irresistible than being dipped in a pool of pheremones.

Sex is also part of the package (heh) in video games. Starting with the horrendously pixelated adventures of Leisure Suit Larry (YA GOT A LUBBER PAL?) through to The Witcher 3 making good use of a unicorn, forming the beast with two backs has usually been worth pursuing in Bioware’s Mass Effect games. And that’s because it takes time and effort to get to know your partner of choice.

Hours spent discovering how to romance these characters and get the best pee-pee friction pleasure possible. So naturally, people want to know if smashing genitals together will be fun in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Producer Michael Gamble reckoned so, when he was pressed for answers on Twitter:

Aw yiss. Last year, BioWare creative director Mac Walters still spoke about evolving the romance options in Mass Effect Andromeda, to create something far more organic (giggity). “In the past we’ve been very, eh, I’d say somewhat formulaic in the way we presented them. We’re trying to look at more organic ways to have those relationships evolve,” Walters said at E3 last year to IGN.

Aaryn [Flynn] talked on stage today about offering more freedom to players than ever before, and that includes areas like this as well — how you engage in those types of relationships and the gating around them throughout the timeline of the story.

And now you know! I’m personally looking forward to failing at love in both the real world and the digital realm. HahahahahahahadammitImsolonely.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Don’t press X to early, don’t press X to earl, don’t press X too early …..

  • Captain JJ

    I don’t see how this would matter at all to me.

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s okay, sex isn’t for everyone

      • PurplePariah

        Shame. He doesn’t know what he’s missing. XD

        • Hammersteyn

          XD

      • Admiral Chief
      • Captain JJ

        You’re right. It’s for the living. Well, except for necro’s but that’s a whole different problem.

        • Hammersteyn

          They crack open a cold one?

          • Admiral Chief

            Eish

          • Hammersteyn

            Yup, they’re frozen like Eish by then 😛

          • Ir0nseraph

            XD

          • Captain JJ

            Haha. Wow. Excellent.

    • 0_o

      I must admit, that my thought matched that.

      If I wanted to play a game for the sex scenes, between alien / human and alien, then perhaps playing a big role paying game is not for me?

      I am happy with the romance and stuff, but I like the Mass Effect 1 and Dragon Age did it, you finally get to together after helping X through problems that showed how much you care through doing stuff for them, you kiss and the screen goes tastefully blank. Done. Happy for the immersive role playing, thanks.

      (cause love is about what you do for the other person and big demonstrations of affection and is not in anyway unconditional or not linked to material values

      • Captain JJ

        Yea man. We’re in the minority here though.

        • miaau

          I think so. Totally.

          Of course, other can think and believe as they wish, as always my philosophy.

          Edit* I do wonder, though, if this is perhaps, somehow, laying an imprint in the mind of a 10 year old that love can be achieved by doing things for your potential significant other. Of course, other factors would gave to be at play, for this to effect a youngster like that.

          That would be sad.

          • Captain JJ

            Yea man. To each their own, of course. But 3D rendered sex doesn’t do it for me, so sue me.

      • Admiral Chief

        Well said

      • Sageville

        We must be tolerant of everyone’s gaming persuasions neh?

        I like that stuff and from past experience, it ain’t nasty.

      • Ir0nseraph

        I am sure they might add an option to skip if it’s too graphic, but a game definitely doesn’t need it to be good.

        • Admiral Chief

          I dunno, maybe focus more on the gameplay and story than on an option that some people won’t want to see?

          • Ir0nseraph

            That can work.

        • miaau

          It is not being too graphic or not.

          Why is this article here? Why was it written? Is sex really a selling point for a big expansive RPG game?

          • Ir0nseraph

            O yes we always stick 100% to the article’s content in the comments section.

            But no sex isn’t needed to sell Mass Effect, that’s not why I might be preordering a game again for the first time in a year.

          • miaau

            Ah, yes. I was using the article to illustrate my point, not trying to get you or anybody else back on “topic”.

            Bah, topics.

          • Ir0nseraph

            LoL

          • Captain JJ

            I think unfortunately sex has become a selling point for games.

    • MonsterCheddar

      XD.

    • MonsterCheddar

      As usual the spelling….But we had this discussion over this meme already

      • Indeed.

        • MonsterCheddar

          And now we can just appreciate the humour in it.

          • That’s what I was doing in the first place xD

      • Admiral Chief

        ERRRRRRRRRRRRRROR

    • miaau

      but no.

  • HvR

    “Okay Wrex but just the tip”

    • Admiral Chief

      UNLEASH THE QUAD!

  • PurplePariah

    “pee-pee friction”

    DID YOU JUST ASSUME MY GENDER?!

    • miaau

      perhaps, but what a funny statement.

      And a little bit disturbing. I am not thinking about this anymore.

  • Yay! All the sex!

  • MonsterCheddar

    Jirre, and as usual the nerds get excited about the bowchikiwowow in a game….

  • Sageville

    Freaky-Deaky Alien sex with tentacles or GTFOH!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Hello.

  • Best news this year!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    If it’s “pretty good” compared to the last game, it’ll be like walking in on your parents.

  • Johann

    Hmm, how is this going to work? Will it be like a QTE where you need to press the buttons in the right order and if you do it wrong you end up as a huge disappointment?

  • Unavengedavo

    I’ve had no interest in the Mass Effect series what soever… Until now O_o

  • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

    Krogan smash incoming xD
