Well...I didn't get to play too much of it. Couldn't get it to hook me up with a server at all yesterday. Today it worked though.

Anywho…it was definitely playable. It was interesting. Graphics were top notch. It was even kinda fun. I don't know what to compare it to. Hell...there's not a lot I could compare it to. I really haven't played that many games. Though I own almost all of them, I haven't played any of the games mentioned in this thread yet. The only thing I've played that was somewhat similar would be the Dead Space series. Similar in the sense of "suit up and go kill shit". Other than that, not very similar at all really.

Bottom line: It was pretty cool actually. I liked it. I'd play it again. I'd probably pay $20 for it. Which is my top price for a game purchase. So that says something I suppose. I'm also not that hard to please when it comes to games. I'll play just about whatever...if it doesn't suck too hard.

There is a none disclosure agreement that players of the alpha need to sign so there is not much one can reveal about the game without the treat to get ones origin account cleaned of all games

To me, it's interesting since he says he's not much of a gamer. Good way to gauge the casual player's tastes maybe.

I thought it was interesting he compared it to Dead Space. I wonder if there are actual Visceral people who were moved to Bioware. I mean, Dead Space is a horror game, but I could imagine some of action elements resemble it.

Had the same lack of servers experience, connected once, heard the audio, but the game didn't actually load, so I was still on the load screen. Didn't have time to try again yesterday, so I wasted three hours of my life testing their crappy servers. I don't think this was fair to the alpha testers, as time isn't free. I wish I had something to say about the rest of the game, but I don't...

That says a lot. Game is like SimCity: online for the sake of being online. Pros are few, cons are many and major.

I was able to play all 3 sesions. Only had connection issues about 10min in the last session. The game looks great and played great.

I dont have a 10 year old nerd rage agianst bioware for any past games so I have little interest in bashing them.

This is going to be my top game for 2019.

Well, when I saw the video of anthem a year ago, with that dude's face at start of video, I would have fallen on my buttock if I wasn't already sitting. The facial expressions looked almost 100% realistic, like every muscle on his face moved. It was as if they've put sensors on real people faces and recorded all movement. First time ever I saw something like that. Unfortunately, this isn't the type of game you'll be able to enjoy those details too often, it's more of a shooter then an RPG and I wont be buying it, nor playing it. But if next skyrim or a similar game had this kind of graphics, I wouldn't complain.

Ohhh yeah, you bet your sweet arse they are releasing Skyrim again.

On topic, I'll take an unused key as well if no one wants to give it a spin, I was kinda interested in the game, interested in world size and exploration.

Honestly in terms of graphics and presentation yes, I was also tickled by the footage I've seen.

But then reality sets in, I have to see it before I'll believe it. IF this truly is going to be a great title, it will be an exception to the recent trend. Suffice to say some vague claims about 'its great' are not enough.

Anthem? I don't even care for Bioware games anymore. Not after the travesty Dragon Age inquisition was, and especially not after Andromeda.
Especially when another action-RPG title (Cyberpunk 2077) is around the corner.

Bioware is dead.

Anthem and Cyberpunk are two different types of game, Anthem has MMO element much like Destiny&Warframe.
I hope the main story is good and there are plenty of interesting side missions that has lore and there is still no confirm dates for Cyberpunk either.

My friend, i dont care if they are slightly different genres. I care for which one will be a better game. And i can bet on Anthem being a flop. It is quite obvious already from the footage.

Also, just a friendly reminder. This is an EA production. EA. The company that closed Visceral Games and cancel their Star Wars single player game in favor of Battle front. Prior experiences describe perfectly what you should expect.

Of course everybody cares which game will be better but you will get people giving the game a good go before making the judgement.
Yes EA has closed Visceral which i'm not pleased about it myself but that doesn't mean we should not support potentially good game that game developers worked hard on despite the publisher marketing tactics is awful.
Bioware may have disappointed a lot of people with Andromeda and Dragon age but it still on paper did better than other games on their release.
I don't know when you got introduced into CDPR but many console gamers and even major media outlets only gave a toss about them when Witcher 2 was released on the 360 and then Witcher 3 shot them right up the food chain.
Cyberpunk isn't around the corner when there is no official release date, it could very well be released next year for all we know.

You really believe that EA affects the game developed for them only in marketing aspect? For example, you don't expect Anthem to be full of microtransactions and loot boxes? Honestly?


Bioware may have disappointed a lot of people with Andromeda and Dragon age but it still on paper did better than other games on their release.
Sales doesn't necessarily make them better games though.

I don't know when you got introduced into CDPR but many console gamers and even major media outlets only gave a toss about them when Witcher 2 was released on the 360 and then Witcher 3 shot them right up the food chain.
I've played all Witcher games. Ofcourse their first games weren't great, but a small studio has got to start from somewhere. And you've seen how much they have been improved over time.

Cyberpunk isn't around the corner when there is no official release date, it could very well be released next year for all we know.
Yes it isn't, but 2019 release is not impossible. Let's not forget the game is in development since almost 2012.

You really believe that EA affects the game developed for them only in marketing aspect? For example, you don't expect Anthem to be full of microtransactions and loot boxes? Honestly?

What I mean is the actual game developers employed,they are probably on offence of the whole practice EA has themselves but they put up with it.
All the decision making are done by higher ups in bioware and EA, while the developers themselves just get told what they need to do.
