    Make the Codex Great Again!
    I'll go one further and say that when they see the game, they won't buy it [​IMG]

    Indeed, it's been more than two years since Win10 passed the 50% mark on Steam, and the PCs running Win7 are generally not capable hardware-wise, to run Anthem anyway.

    I'd still be surprised if the game refused to run on Win7, if memory and GPU requirements are met.

    Well, they did do MDK2. Remember MDK2? Was why it was kind of surprising the third person shooting was so shit in the Mass Effect games.

    ME and ME2 do have awful combat, but ME3's combat is honestly pretty good. :M

    Looks like they are attempting to milk ME3 Multiplayer base and people otherwise interesting this sort of games. It's just that IMO world doesn't need another Warframe.

    There's a real disconnect between flying robot suits and the weapons casting frost nova.

    This looks worse with every video. Even destiny managed to pull off the action much better than this shit.

    + Flying and animation are excellent, smooth and responsive, but suit really feels like it has weight to it
    + World/visuals are gorgeous and encourages clever use of it for traversal

    +/- Shooting is...ok? Not the worst, but lack real 'punch' to it
    +/- Too flashy, visual effects are over the top and distract instead ( similar to Inquisition)

    - Art is all over the place..like modern sci fi+medieval+cyberpunk mashed together. No real sense of identity.
    - Weak AI/bullet sponges
    - MMO design/icons really ruin immersion here. It's somehow even worse than cartoonish Borderlands/Destiny
    - Music is completely bland/unrecognizable
    - Facial animations, dialogue and NPCs is Andromeda quality, sidequests are bare bones, AI companion ( voice) is annoying
    - Hub is lifeless with static NPCs

    Can't wait for this game to...



    Show Spoiler
    ...crash and burn like the rusty, unreliable and defective Javellin exosuit that BioWare is.

    Huh, the hub is probably the most interesting part of the game.

    Which is very telling. Sure, you could make an argument Bioware hasn't really revealed much about it to keep spoilers under wraps, but I kinda doubt that. Makes no sense when you consider Anthem is not really aimed at what is perceived as Bioware's "traditional audience". Whether you subscribe to old CRPG fans or "how does Tali's sweat taste?" degeneracy.

    Low effort, order 1886 looks worlds better, hub vs. hub even Rage looks worlds better. It's so low effort they nicked borderlands knoxx dlc radio chatter 1:1 , no less. Ugh.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    On one hand, Anthem is a sensible choice by neo-Bioware, as the co-op multiplayer components of their recent popamole games have been consistently enjoyable. On the other, I'm not sure BioWare jumped into this fully aware that making a full-blown game in this vein (as opposed to a multiplayer component of an eminently single player experience) means competing with Destiny, The Division 2 etc. The scale is not the same, nor are the measures of success. Even years after the reveal it's obvious Anthem has nothing to differentiate it from the big games in this space. It'll release to positive reviews, mild success and kill Bioware off for good. Looking forward to it.

    I hate that mention of ''alpha'' gameplay. Game is releasing in 4 weeks, yeah right that this is still in alpha.
