Mass Effect: Andromeda has come in for its fair share of criticism, with its awkward dialogue singled out as a particular weakness. But its not just the writing thats bad the underlying dialogue system itself is worse than it was in the original trilogy. In fact, in this regard the series has been all downhill since the first games release in 2007. The original Mass Effects Renegade and Paragon system was far from perfect, but it gave the player a very real sense of choice. Youd pick from a range of responses during conversations and, occasionally, youd have the option to Charm or Intimidate the person you were talking to. Usually this was in order to solve a sticky situation, or shortcut an objective. Although these choices were admittedly too binary most broke down to Shepard either being a goody two-shoes or a massive dick they were always interesting.

Though the official release date of Mass Effect: Andromeda isnt here just yet, saying the games reviews and fan first impressions from the early access trial are looking less than stellar would be an understatement. Were currently playing the game ourselves and have found ourselves torn. Mass Effect: Andromeda has many wonderful features and additions that weve greatly enjoyed exploring. However as good as they are these features are, they frequently either overreach or don't take full advantage of their potential. Sometimes, incredibly, it manages to be both of these issues at the same time. Seemingly taking inspiration from its changed morality system, Mass Effect: Andromeda is neither a Renegade or Paragon of a game its not outrightly good or bad, its something in between.

By Dr. Mercola Five years ago, political lobbyist Jack Abramoff shocked the nation when, in a 60-Minute Report, he revealed just how corrupt the U.S. political system really is. As it turns out, it's actually worse than most critical outsiders could have imagined. Now, the downfall of yet another high-powered corporate lobbyist is shedding light on tactics used to promote drug industry interests. Other recent news reveals how the CDC uses scare tactics to incentivize people into getting an annual flu shot — despite studies repeatedly showing that flu shots have been from zero to less than 50 percent effective in preventing type A or B influenza over the past decade. 1 For this flu season, the CDC estimates the vaccine has failed about 60 percent of the time to prevent infection with the most prevalent A strain circulating this year. 2 The Rise and Fall of a Roche VP In The Rise and Fall of a K Street Renegade, published in The Wall Street Journal, 3 Brody Mullins details the suspected wrongdoings of Evan Morris, who at age 27 became a top Washington lobbyist for Roche Holdings AG, one of the largest drug companies in the world.

"If MPs will not vote in favor, I will resign as president that second," President Hashim Thaci, whose former political party is the biggest in parliament, said in an interview on Friday evening with state television channel RTK. "A legislature that will not vote for the army of its own country should go home." Kosovo declared independence in 2008 but relations between Belgrade and Pristina remain strained and Serbia continues to regard Europe's newest country as a renegade province. The row over the army has left the small Balkan country at odds with its western backers over a big issue for the first time and it remains unclear what prompted Thaci to suddenly shift his policy. NATO and the United States said on Wednesday they would re-evaluate the assistance they have long provided to the KSF if the changes are approved. In 1999 NATO bombed Serbia for weeks to halt the killing and expulsion from Kosovo of ethnic Albanian civilians by Serbian forces fighting a two-year counter-insurgency.

Sitting mid-way between the Renegade and Cherokee, the Jeep Compass offers good value comfort on or off the roadThe Jeep name is more widely recognised in the UK than its relatively low sales figures would suggest. While models like the Jeep Cherokee are big sellers in its native North America, the brand has struggled to get a foothold in the UK. With Jeep now part of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group, recent models have been more in tune with European tastes and the latest Jeep Compass is based on the platform used for the Fiat 500X. It has its sights set on attracting buyers away from a growing raft of compact SUV rivals, including the Nissan Qashqai, SEAT Ateca and Volkswagen Tiguan. Image 1 of 20 The Compass name has been used by Jeep before on its entry-level model. That position is now taken by the Jeep Renegade, so the Compass slots in between that model and its futuristically styled Cherokee big brother.

Said Manley: “I have moved it back for a couple of reasons. Between now and 2020 we have the Wrangler, the Cherokee facelift, the Renegade facelift and the Wrangler truck to deal with. Also it is a car with a long gestation period.” Jeep fans can expect new levels of luxury from the Grand Wagoneer , and it is likely to be sold in five- and seven-seat configurations. Manley confirmed it will be sold in Europe, but added: “Will it be sold in right-hand drive? Right now I dont know the answer to that.” Does a hybrid Jeep Wrangler make sense to you? Let us know in the comments section... Graham Hope

A renegade South Sudanese general says President Salva Kiir is destroying the East African nation and must be overthrown. General Thomas Cirillo Swaka spoke to VOA's South Sudan in Focus from an undisclosed location Monday, soon after announcing the launch of a new rebel group, the National Salvation Front. "Kiir is killing our people, Kiir has betrayed the aspiration, the hope of our people," he said. "So it is a must for the people of South Sudan ... to come out at this historical juncture to see into it that Kiir is not there." South Sudan has been mired in war since fighting between pro- and anti-Kiir factions broke out at the end of 2013. The war has displaced more than two million people from their homes and triggered ongoing food shortages in many areas. Cirillo said his group will "use every means possible" to bring down Kiir, but was evasive about the size of his forces.

Remembered for: Its ass-kicking co-op The follow-up to the less well remembered Renegade, Double Dragon is perhaps the most famous side-scrolling brawler of all time. Playing as two martial art master brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee, you stalk the mean streets laying the smackdown on nefarious gang members. It was one of the first games to let you knock a weapon from an opponent's hand and use it against them, too, adding an extra layer of strategy to encounters (as well as letting you get a cheap shot in on your co-operative partner). Remembered for: Its three-way wheeled face-offs Before there was Forza Horizon, or even Sega Rally, there was Ivan Ironman Stewarts Super Off Road. A racing game with attitude, it had you racing pick up and monster trucks around hilly, jump-filled dirt tracks. It had amazing visuals (Micro Machines took a thing or two from this), while its unique stand-up cabinet let three players face off on one screen and still have a wheel each to drive with.

Jeep has a long history with vehicle customization and personalization going back to the first CJ Jeeps produced after WWII. These days, instead of plows, seeders, and hay rakes, Jeep customers are looking for aftermarket equipment designed for improved off-road capabilities, everyday usability, and curb-size appearance. Mopar has been there for much of Jeep’s history but is now enjoying a renaissance in popularity thanks to a wide selection of dealer add-on parts. These accessories are able to be wrapped inside vehicle financing and are covered under warranty. Mopar’s latest batch of parts fits Jeep’s newest product – the 2017 Jeep Compass. This two-row crossover slots between the Renegade and Cherokee, both in size and price. Its sleek, modern looks are arguably more attractive than the Cherokee, while still harking back to Jeep’s glory days.

For lack of a better description, Robo Recall is the writing of Portal meets the style of Bulletstorm meets the action of Superhot. The story revolves around robots running amok and leaves you, as the games sole living recall agent, to clean up the mess. How you clean up is using pistols, shotguns and your fists to decapitate the renegade robots. The games developer told us to expect around nine missions, each of which have a day and night mode that have been enabled by the Unreal game engine. Each mission takes 15-20 minutes to complete for about a five-hour game, which is slightly lengthier than the limited shooting galleries weve seen so far on the platform. The game will be out first-quarter of 2017 - which at this point, means sometime this month. An Oculus Touch exclusive, ARTIKA.1 is a first-person shooter (were seeing a trend here) from the team that created Metro franchise.
