Round Table – Mass Effect: Andromeda

"Criticize their work, that’s fine- as creators we often welcome critique as a way to better ourselves and the product we provide to gamers."

Disney re-used footage and animation cliches

I'm sure all us animation nuts have seen the side-by-side Disney cells but here are a lot of the sequences side by side.
