tldr: ME:Andromeda "recruitment" had r/c car, it's basically ME1 mako-driving in real life... I may be banned from driving on future missions.... (my Pathfinder is clearly meant for busy inside work...)

alright everyone, story time! PAX East had much Mass Effect: Andromeda promoting goin on, one of which was Andromeda Initiative Recruitment which is couple 'cleverness' puzzles, NOMAD drive test & co-op multiplayer PC demo!

Lemme tell you about that driving test!! They had a lil r/c car for which a terrain course was set up. There's a time limit & 3 checkpoints - the set up requires you to move around because you can't see all points from start corner. Also car must return to base for successful run count
My lil car flew off base and over a hill (all the sane people took the tunnel), got stuck twice (helpers will pick up car), flipped over ... and I actually tripped into the course myself stepping on a light in process (in heat of moment forgot only 3 sides are accessible ... )

bonus: Diplomacy in Biotic test was my internal panic at drawing a blank & outloud saying "I will let the Encor break the news. They will say most empathetically )

ok, just one more... this movie just...
so, Ghostbusters near the end, they're out drinking. The camera pans outta teh telly screen and I'm sittin here like "you fucks!!! of all the places!!!"
again, lemme explain. Don't exactly go to many restaurants (seriously, left to my own devices Panera is as high-end as will go) BUT in this case? this right here is a rare place I actually been too!!! Jacob Wirth

See the drapery behind Holtzmann thar? That's them covering up the giant letters of the place's name! (because historic place in historic landmark in very specific city =P) And once again the scene is carefully arranged to blur up all the bazillion things in the background, 'cause lemme tell u.. the walls in that place mention the city they're in in more than a few newspaper clippings
(oh, and there's a goddamn MBTA bus seen from the window for half a second! "but Anna, how can u tell?" because MTA has blue stripes and ours are yellow)

watching Ghostbusters and geeking the fuck out on realBoston/fake-NYC bits

for example, this wonderful early shot! Let me explain
In real life, this is Boston Chinatown, Essex St (and..ehh.. Harrison?). But whats amazing is how much was altered on-location & in-post to make it not!!
Like, see on the right the big yellow on white shop sign? (look behind the OneWay arrow) THAT IS REAL!! Shops as-is, unedited. One of the very few UNEDITED bits actually (as most of skyline goin away in that direction. The tallest buildings are CG)
The street-signs have been renamed (when they were shooting by Post Office Sq they put up brand new signs, dunno if these in the shot are real or CG retouch), added new banner/signage on building (on site!) subtle lil water-towers added to roofs (we dun do that anywhere, pure CG), buildings on the LEFT of the shot changed (both apartment building facades behind HQ are pure fiction. Red brick fully fake, but tan w/ stairs is solid blank wall. The white wall on the far left added faded art)
The HQ itself IS a restaurant (Kaze shabu shabu) but it's actually blue (the giant obnoxious kanji was brought in)

bonus round: in couple scenes on-street itself, the background is outta focus just enuff so can't read area-specific things in shop windows

aaaaaaand now kinda wondering if they CGed up the cars goin by. Not the cars themselves (the filmmakers did bring in couple NYC orange cabs and "NYPD" marked cars, we made fun of them for a week) but the rest of cars goin by appear to have that particular shade of Empire State to their plates....
