imageAnthem's Legendary Contracts Livestream Recap

Yesterday’s Anthem livestream was a bit of an interesting one as it gave us a peek at something players will be able to do at endgame: Legendary Contracts. My original understanding was that the stream would focus on Anthem’s weapons, but the change in plans wasn’t a bad one.

Read the full story here

    It's good to see the devs constantly releasing info like they have been lately. That plus the free play week before launch give a sense that they are pretty confident in the how the game will be received. I'm really eager to get to try it.

    I agree. And I'll probably enjoy it on the grounds that good third person shooters are becoming increasingly hard to come by.

    I really hope so too, but I stand skeptical. Even after the open beta / demo. Desitny had a great demo. I will wait for user reviews before i decide on this beast

    VERY lazy idea to just add missions to repeat the same stuff you already been doing the entire time.This is exactly the lazy effort i talked about in another thread,an idea that takes but a few lines of code they can write in a day or two and not have to add really anything else to the game.
    End game needs to be something fresh and new,a whole new feeling of a different game,think more like an EVENT. Then again this game at least to me looks to be banking on small lanes/pads /parcels of land so very tough to have any events or large scale end game type content like that.

    Basically end game should not become a point of let's repeat everything but attach a grind to it,so yeah lazy ...cheap approach.

    That pretty much sums up Destiny 2.  They nailed the combat flow and storytelling.  A lot will depend on Anthem's combat and how engaging their stories are..

    With the constant negative responses from you that I always see then really curious when your AAA game is coming that you are making to show everyone how to do it right. Never seen a post of yours when I read comments that is positive.
    Loot grinding and higher difficulty is what Diablo and PoE offer and people keep playing those. Just look at the rabid fan base for Diable 2. Same thing with raiding in MMOs as reach end game and then it is just grind. I love having more content but I know that it takes time.

    Really looking forward to this game. It was already said that Bioware can add difficulty levels on their side so if fun then I will be happy to have a shooter looter.

    only way to do "end game" is to make it repetitive.
    there's no way in hell anyone can come up with new stuff to match the rate of consumption.
    they can probably fake it and add some rng to it like Anthem seems to be doing but it's still going to be you repeating the same tasks. you either enjoy it or don't but jeez lower your expectations or quit gaming all together because what you're after isn't realistic.

    So, if you play the demo and you like it you are going to wait for the opinions of others to tell you if should get it or not.

    This is just me, but I trust my opinion more than anyone elses.

    This is correct. I also trust my own opinion more than others, but i also trust my own money more in my hands than in the hands of EA. And a demo wont tell me squat about endgame, which will be the majority of the game

    It's a troll, one done in a way as to not get banned but all of it's posts are troll posts. Best to just ignore it and move on.



    Those damn internet trolls and russian bots keep posting mean stuff, but us regular good people know everything is nice and dandy.

    Feel free to ignore if you want, but if you are going to reply to him, at least try to counter his arguments, because right now, he's won the argument because you responded with personal attacks rather than trying to disprove his.  :/

    pretty sure at end game you will be doing various activities that require combat in order to get loot. And im sure the combat mechanics are the same from beginning to end.

    So let me get this straight, if you have an opinion other than the current shill press that is going around you're a troll?

    That's asinine. If you have to insult someone, you already lost the argument.

    I can't speak for everybody else but I think what they meant is that he never says anything good about any game but FFXI. If he does its brief and usually in the same post brings up ten other negatives. Everyone here is critical about something but they are also positive as well. If you are on this site and constantly negative 95% of the time then you are either trolling or torturing yourself.

    It's also apparent that his criticisms are cut and paste. There is like a 95% chance in any post that something will be called "cheap," "lazy," or both.

    It's kind of odd that the game hasn't launched yet and they are axing the original price.

    In my neck of the woods, South Dakota, it isn't discounted at all. Unless you count the discount you get if you are a EA access subscriber on console or if your an orgin account subscriber on PC

    Well, can be to the reason they cited Destiny's demo.
    It can be a good experience in a finite context, but if the game doesn't stand up to regular play then that is where you'll run into problems. It needs the longevity and the balance in the gameplay needs to cater to that.

    Other user reviews are valuable for that because it helps you see the scope of consumable content, something that you will otherwise have to individually delve into the full scope of the game to discover yourself otherwise (which then defeats the purpose since that'd mean you had to buy the game any ways to discover this).

    So in short. A short demo can be a good experience, but not reflect potential gameplay, gear, progression imbalances or other pitfalls to the game's content or scope. user reviews helps you seek out if there are such flaws in the full retail before committing to the purchase yourself.
