Well he had perfect posture with wide shoulders, which is rare not to make someone even in real life not look like that.

Not sure about running though it seems spot on from my memory.

Back to topic, is ME:Andromeda any good? Ive been considerably excited for it and ive still got 11 hours til it unlocks in the UK.

I mean.. whenever I run and other people run we run with our backs mostly straight,

it's just that ME:A has their faces like
*dad dies*
*teamate dies*
*arks have failed*
*preparing to leave for an adventure!*
*resting face*

Quickload..thats bearing on the spoiler route despite your attempt at humour.

Also, the animations are ever so slightly weird but not near enough to hate on. This game is astonishingly awesome so far for me, a proper game in a time when so much garbage is pumped out by big name companies.

There seems to be a lot more problems than just animations. Awfully bland character models, cumbersome UI and mild temperered dialogue lines partly due to Paragon/Renegade system replacement for a 4 way (that doesn't even work as conceptualized).

I am a huge fan of ME and I've been clicking in different parts of gameplay videos knowing that it would spoil things for me. I needed a confirmation as I don't want to spend money unwisely and I did get it somehow.

Having said this, the action gameplay is better (although never was a particularly highlight of the series), exploration gathers everything done well in the previous trilogy and the story seems to pick it up well in the end.

I concluded that I'm likely to either get this at a very cheap price in the future or wait for the sequel to justify the purchase. After ME:3 ending it would be expected that Bioware/EA would learn from that. It serves to validates my point of view that hatemobbing for the most cases is redundant and never solves any issues at their core. I say this based on news about the team behind this project (compared to the previous) and why ME:3 ending turned out to be utter crap.

Hopefully they can do a better work in animations and continue to experiment/improve with the game mechanics (as that is a trend of the franchise anyway). I'm just disappointed that even if Andromeda picks it up in style, they have this one title that many people will avoid to play again or start with. Overall ME 2 was the best of the previous trilogy and it's likely it will be the same for the next one as well. Which is a shame, because it's one trilogy I was anticipating to be a mark in videogame history and for myself to play it over and over in the same fashion people love to watch their beloved LoTR trilogy from time to time.

Not to sure what you are talking about. After 415hrs the only animations in Witcher 3 that bug me are the looped hand gestures. Some of the more generic NPCs you talk to use the same set of hand gestures over and over again.
