Mass Effect Andromeda Animations Spark Controversy, BioWare Responds

The key bit of information to take from the video is the fact that Mass Effect: Andromeda was created through the use of Nvidia Technology on a Frostbite engine.

Following a particularly aggressive post by gaming blogger Ethan Ralph at his website The Ralph Retort, many online trolls and disgruntled Mass Effect: Andromeda fans pounced on Leost, with many alleging that she was the primary reason behind the flawed facial models in the AAA game. From the looks of things, BioWare will likely gauge player reaction after the game releases to see how much demand there is for something like that. Mass Effect: Andromeda will not be receiving changes made to its character models and animation despite fans negative reception so far.

Animations are a slight distraction from the latest entry in the Mass Effect series.

Allie Rose-Marie Leost was bombarded with sexually explicit messages after she was identified as the lead animator in Electronic Arts' motion capture labs by a blog post at TheRalphRetort, Kotaku reported Saturday. Some commenters on Twitter alone accused her of using her gender to get a job, while others were just downright lewd and predatory.

The rally was organized by FreedomWorks, a conservative group backed by the billionaire Koch brothers. Without most people on board, the House can not even get it to the Senate to even consider.

BioWare, the developer behind Mass Effect: Andromeda, issued a formal statement that gamers were attacking the wrong person, referring to the person in question as a "former EA employee" who "was misidentified as a lead member of the Mass Effect: Andromeda development team".

Detailed on Twitter, lead designer for Mass effect: Andromeda Ian Frazier, stated that the boat for animation fixes have long gone sailed off.
