    Any money spent on Anthem would be a waste. Better off using it on SWTOR at this point, at least it has a huge name backing it.

    That's great. Except it also reads "game is in maintenance mode until we launch this major update and we're not telling you when".

    The "substantial reinvention" will be called Anthem 2 and will cost 60 dollars.

    Nice way to recoup some of the cost - as Xbox Series/PS5 "Definitive Edition" alongside it's weaker but free "Infinite Loading Edition" upgrade for Xbone/PS4 owners.

    But hey, why not. I got to play the Beta, and the gameplay loop was there. If they can refine this and make everything else around it (aka the game) less shit, I'd give it a chance... maybe.

    Looks like my four dollar purchase will pay off... Eventually. I have my doubts whether they'll pull it off but stranger things have happened (No Man's Sky/Sea of Thieves come to mind).

    The core flying and combat really are fun. The player controls well and the game world is beautiful to fly around in. It's just that the game itself sucked. A reboot could potentially be good.

    The flight thing is funny, because that's like the big thing I keep seeing and hearing people point to as a fun aspect of the game...usually the most fun, but it also exist outside of the core gameplay of actually shooting stuff. Hearing it was EA that made BioWare keep the flying in is pretty funny; because while it's seemingly the thing people like most, it also feels like BioWare was resentful about this and just never took the time to work shooting into it. The flying also ended up being a fairly large part of their marketing, which makes it even odder they never worked gameplay into it; it instead just being a way to get around with hovering being what you do when firing.

    Sounds exactly like the shit Bethesda was telling Quake Champions players while firing Saber (the studio working on the game). They didn't release anything meaningful in more than year, just shitty shop skins.
    Or the timelines from Lawlbreakers.

    LE: dully noted, this quake is not worth an acronym

    You can't just pull out random acronyms. Was like: QC, what the fuck is QC?

    I forgot Quake Champions was even a thing.
