    Even Kotaku and its comment section heavily criticize Anthem. Kotaku, a site that thought Mass Effect Andromeda is an okay to fine game.

    Probably because Anthem doesn't have political content in them but still.

    Based on both my time with the game and occasionally checking on how the subreddit for the game is doing, I think nobody defends Anthem because it's almost worse than being bad. It's disappointing. There's obviously potential in the gameplay systems, as the focus on flight, mobility, and meaningful weapon/ability combos could make for some really interesting gameplay and there are these constant glimpses of brilliance. Someone who works at BioWare in the gameplay department really knows their stuff. But then you actually play for more than five minutes, experience the abysmal story, the terrible UI, the horrible technical performance (and mound of glitches that've barely been addressed), and the poor loot structure and core gameplay loop and it's impossible to not see just how crappy the game is in practice.

    Fallout 76 might be trash. Might even be worse than Anthem. But you kinda know this going in. It's gonna be a glitchier version of Fallout 4 without mod support but with multiplayer. Borderlands 3 might be just more Borderlands, but love it or hate it, it is what it is. Anthem just constantly makes you think "Man, there are some really good ideas here. But man, this game is bad."

    Game is selling for $5.38 on Amazon.

    Where is that dude that was saying it was too early to say Anthem was dead?

    It says PC CIAB as the platform though, what the fuck is that? Google actually doesn't show anything related.

    It'll be interesting to see if EA continues to fund these alleged attempts at overhauling/resurrecting Anthem. They obviously want a piece of the Destiny/Division looter shooter live service pie, but at what stage do they realize it's just not worth it?

    Supposedly Anthem was handed off to Bioware Austin but… Bioware Austin recently put up a bunch of job listings and nearly all of them were for working on SWTOR, none of them managed Anthem at all.

    As much of a dumpster fire as this game is, the shooting and javelin movement are fun and there's something worth salvaging underneath all of their terrible decisions, monetization and bureaucratic bullshit. Problem is, I don't see Electronic Arts as the company that's willing or capable to "A Realm Reborn" it.

    At least on the ps4 you cant play this without ps plus, not even the single player missions. Thats a huge turn off for players used to playing warframe without needed plus, none of the mmos on ps require plus... But anthem.

    Kek at that Fallout 76 cover advertising it has in game purchases like it's a desirable trait to possess.
