Even though we got a slightly delayed launch time for Early Access, I still think its about time to drop the OT. Other games launching this Friday like Metro and Crackdown already have their OT's up... so it's time for Anthem to get the OT treatment I think.
So they added enemy arrow indicators to let you know enemies might be off screen, despite the fact that they were never hard to find in the first place since they already showed up on the compass anyway? Unless it is more of a proximity indicator instead of just a general notification that enemies are "around".
Exactly, EA did not think this through. It's not Madden or a game that will be done in 20 hours. GaaS games are about the community and nothing is worse than giving special people an early start. The game should launch at the same time for everyone. Period.
A lot of people that consider themselves "good" at multitasking end up actually being worse at productivity than they thought, and humans don't really multitask anyway. We switch between tasks rapidly.
Sure, but pre-order perks in arguably the most successful multiplayer-oriented games/MMOs don’t result in muddied full release windows of a week or more. EA and another company or two I think have been pretty egregious on what they can push on this front, especially with full cost titles, that it detracts from the experience.
Compared to say, getting a preload in to play immediately at midnight vs. buying a boxed copy in the morning or even attending a physical midnight release event.
Anyway the thing I came here to post was that the biggest word I’d describe my thoughts about Anthem is cautious. Not overly optimistic or pessimistic, but pretty solidly in the middle. Just don’t know enough right now and I’ve been burned enough times by BioWare in the past that I’m not riding a hype train, but I don’t think it looks absolutely horrid either. Only the fully released product will be enough to tell if it’s good, and that question has to be asked a month or more down the line repeatedly, because if the endgame is lacking and/or not built upon, there’s no reason to invest much money or time in the product with the competition that exists unless you really like the specific aesthetic more.
