    So lots of flying over empty landscapes until you get to your battle then some combat. The landscapes range from really nice to downright fugly.

    Some of the combat and abilities look nice though and it does appear the suits all have their own unique gameplay which is nice. Will wait to see how things go post launch.

    This is what Warframe SHOULD play like, not that floaty 0 gravity BS. Excited to give this a try when it comes out.

    The robot voice sounds just like the one from Destiny 2. In fact this game reminds me of Destiny except you're flying.

    And the fact it will more than likely have a story in the game instead of going to a website to learn the story. Oh and it being third person except in the Fort where the story takes place.

    Sorry I wasn't trying to imply that it wouldn't be better. I think it will probably be miles better than D2. Just a lot of similarities.

    This is not an MMO so will be buy to play with season pass or multiple dlc packs per year to buy.  With it being EA it will definitely have a robust cash shop.

    The new norm is sadly $100 at least for a game and all its content.

    Actually there is no season pass for this game. They have stated several times that it will have free updates. Now I am not saying they won't have things down the road but as of right now they don't have a season pass and have stated free updates. https://gamerant.com/anthem-no-season-pass-dlc/

    Article sounds a bit like Destiny when it launched with the whole story for years to come part.


    That being said there  is no way that EA does not find a way to monetize this.  Stock price is in the toilet and they need to show positive gains.  Nickle and diming people is their way of doing business.

    I'll wait couple months before buying the game to make sure EA won't stick their predatory lockboxes after getting positive reviews during first month.

    And I'm a bit less worried about Anthem now as I've tried The Division and it turned out it's improved a lot - so I'm insured out of gaming disappointment by The Division 2 released in February.

    Looks nice, but it plays boring as hell. They need to mix up the pacing.

    Go here to do this
    OH NO SCARS clear them
    Ok do this
    OH NO SCARS clear them
    Oh sh!# boss kill it
    OK come back I got a story to tell

    I spaced out watching it. 

    NO #FOMO here.

    I guess for me I don't look at the publisher as much as some. I look at the development team and their track record with their games. I know some are going to bring up Andromeda and that fiasco but they forget the other games before that or the Dragon Age games. I mean EA is the publisher for Titanfall 2 and that game was good.

    looks like we are getting bored in no time , flying looks tons of fun , graphics are amazing , but if the gameplay is , fly there , kill stuff , fly back , kill boss , fly there , protect (aka kill mobs again) and done...

    0 innovation over generig shooters

    Some would argue Bioware has not had a decent game since DA:O.

    Ever since they have purposely injected politics and social issues I have lost interest in most of their offerings.  

    Still will keep a eye on this from a distance.  Might play it once it hits a sale over the holidays or something but gameplay to this point outside of some cool novelty with the suits is lacking for me.

    I think its bad, Actually i know its bad when im watching a 15 minute gameplay video and skipping through it in 40-50 second chunks because its so goddam boring. Gonna need a free open Beta to try this one hands on in order to sell me. What iv seen so far is a hard pass and the fact its a EA Game makes it so much easier .

    Hard to tell from just one mission. Will have to play in a final beta or wait for real player reviews. Off hand this reminds me of Skyforge with instanced private and perhaps public mission zones.

    Maybe but the world looks so uninteresting.

    I am not talking about needing to have trash mobs every 2 feet to annoy you but that is one empty terrain.  The whole fly over empty terrain just to get to next hub of mobs to fly over more is just meh.  I was forwarding through the video in huge chunks as well after a the first few moments as there was nothing to see.

    Someone should time it and see how much gameplay is in that 15 minutes.

    really looks cool to fly around ironman style, just hope it's actually fun and functional when playing it and not just gimicky to draw in sales. Then i would rather have fast travel.
  • cheyanecheyane Member EpicPosts: 6,043
    Actually you could fly like that in City of Heroes/Villains so that approach to combat is not new.

    Totally gonna play this - looking forward to it.

    I am expecting about 10-20h of fun, if the game delivers more it will exceed my expectations.

    I am expecting the best game ever - nope. I just set my expectations to a realistic level and have fun. Just my 2c.
