    Look at it this way was he roflstomping other players? No since it is not that sort of game.. Also EA/Bioware must of had a reason to unban him for what he was doing, and in the end with what he was doing, shows all that is wrong with Anthem simple as that..

    30$ maybe. And the argument that "you buy the game and all its updates!" is ridiculous, if the game costs 30$, and 3 upcoming updates are worth 10$ - i shouldn't have to pay 60$ upfront.

    Until EA and Bioware stop with this "games as a service" shit with big titles then I ain't touching them.

    Did you figure that out quick enough to get your money back from EA?

    This is a website filled with blizzard gamers, and blizzard made their entire reputation on polish, polish, polish. That polishing tended to happen *after* the game was launched, which is why there was and continues to be the beta memes.
    Completely different topic, but if you have time and/or ability to use a second monitor for a "2nd grade entertainment" of sorts while playing a game - the game is not that good. I never understood people who use two monitors this way - you either play, or watch streams. I know, listening is a thing, but distracting yourself from something you enjoy only makes me think that you don't enjoy it that much and games aren't immersive enough.

If I hadn't actually played Anthem to see for myself if the game was worth a damn, and just listened to the big youtubers and reviews, I'd probably think the game was a steaming pile of bugs and terrible decisions. But I DID play the game for myself, and discovered that it was fine....very enjoyable even, despite some of the bugs I actually encountered.

    A lot of people like to say they can learn everything they need to know about a game by watching streams or youtube videos. And don't get me wrong, that's a powerful tool! But it's the difference between book learning and actual first-hand experience.
    Thing about youtubers and reviews - you have to find the one who has same tastes as yours and follow him. Following "big" youtubers and reviews is one of the worst mistakes you can make when thinking about buying a game

    Considering ive had 20 hours of (generally) painless enjoyment out of the game so far with no end of it in sight, id say its worth the price tag. For me.

    And extra updates of content in the coming months for free? Sign me up.

    Dont get me wrong the game has its faults, but at the end of the day the main selling point of this game is the gameplay, and how combat feels to execute. That alone is fun enough to make me want to stick around and see what develops.

    Still no legendaries for me though, btw masterwork flamethrower + shock coil (or lightning coil, the one that detonates) is a no-brainer for trash aoe, more difficult to use for bosses especially the ones that one-shot in melee like ursix

    On a side note i think freeplay could use more players in the map, 4 players are too few for that huge map, most of the time you are chasing other players to do world events because you can't solo many of the world events in GM1 or higher, so many times you join a world event but you have to fly away when you start getting swarmed from all sides

    EA asks for help to diagnose Anthem's alarming PS4 crashes

    This is not something "nearly all AAA titles do" as has been claimed in this thread, it has happened with some titles, yeah, but very few. This is an issue. I saw someone in here mention it happened to them a bunch, thought this might help.

    Sony are also offering refunds, supposedly.
    they’ve been issuing full refunds for the game with no questions asked
    Whether true or not, guess someone would have to try and find out themselves.

    How the fuck do EA/Bioware not know what is wrong with their own game?

    Do they not have QA or something?

    This trainwreck just keeps getting more fun to watch if I'm honest.

    They do or they did... but EA probably decided they weren't necessary in the wild new frontier of live services where you market finishing the game as "free DLC".

    The problem is current game hours aren't the same thing as game hours 10-15-20 years ago. The product was generally tightly designed and thoughtfully laid out as an experience. The current method of filling up the time with mindless wandering, loading screens, grinding, and non-tailored encounters is low effort filler by comparison.

    I played only a few hour of anthem and gave up.
    The game is so repetative, there is almost no variety to missions, objectives or enemies.

    Well i guess Anthem 76 will stick to it.
    But you can see they totaly ignored testing. You should never deploy a patch till you are 100% it wont break something.
    Oh and QA costs money:
    https://testfort.com/blog/how-much-d...ce-qa-honestly
    Why hire them, when you can use players to work for you for free?

    Also you need to count that Ea doesnt seem to give a thing abauth their reputation. (bad rep (--- less money)

    They certainly have QA but QA will generally not catch everything that could happen. This is more a "let us know what you were doing at the time and did you have to do anything to get the console going again" (such as pressing the actual power button several times or having to wait for a while before it'll even turn back on). When they get enough info, they'll be able to recreate the most common circumstances for a shutdown and see what's going on.

    I hope someone writes an article based on this reddit thread...

    TLDR - No consoles are bricked... people just don't know how to handle recovery. They are not offering refunds.

    Yeah but why be reasonable when you can be in the cool kids club and grab a pitchfork to slay the demon that is EA ('cause no other major game developer works for money FIRST, right? *cough*ATVI*cough*).
    Also, my other favorite thing is when people hate on the QA teams themselves - THESE GUYS MUST SUCK SO MUCH I FELL THROUGH THE GROUND HOW CAN YOU MISS THIS LOLOL... I have friends that work/have worked for Ubisoft and can tell you, QA teams are under huge stress and with disgusting deadlines, half the shit they find doesn't even get approved for fix 'cause reasons (aka devs not having time for it, not seeing enough worth to fix it asap)…

    The gaming industry has been decaying in quality for a long time with almost non-existant innovation but people only notice it when it's a random nobody's topic on reddit with 5k upvotes, otherwise it doesn't matter

    Don't know why we have to call it a "cool kids club" or bandwagon or whatever else when EA get so much hate because they've done enough to deserve it and the reputation to go along with it. No bandwagon about it, it's just people giving their opinion. Only difference when it comes to Anthem (or Apex and such) is that it's misplaced and a lot of the criticism should go to the developer, not the publisher.

    Did I just defend EA? Jesus...

    I agree about all the shit QA teams get, though.

    100% isn't realistic, no. But you should want to be as close to it as humanly possibly.

    Same reason anyone believes anything from Random Joe on the internet, it helps/shares their opinion/viewpoint on a subject.
