Anthem. Anyone still salty / was salty that it failed. plus some extra talk.

Now most are going to say "I knew it was going to fail its EA" but me I knew in the back of my heart ya its most likely going to fail, flop, or just be horrible. Though this did not stop me from hoping EA would actually do good for once, especially when I played the demo and movement and shooting felt so dam good to me, but of course I could see the cracks in the walls (who could not? they where basically massive gaps in some areas).

Does anyone agree with me? Anyone else waiting seeing if it ever goes free to play or dirt cheap? Think any other publishers, developers, indies will try that again? Well besides our em8er :p please let em8er be a success.

well as soon as they said it's a four man teams only made me realize that. At the time there were others that even had raids that allowed bigger teams and they restricted themselves like that was weird. Then when I heard the world map is also a severely restricted player count was weird too me. I had played Destiny and skyforge, Tera, firefall and so coming to a world map with only so few players on it made it feel so dead.

Since then I have played games like Division so I can see it can work but in Division's case it's because that's they can sell the whole rambo/cowboy dream just as well as team play. And the map just feels alive with how the devs decorate the map and in Division 2's case with all the two or three AI sides fighting each other and roaming around the map.

I doubt it will go F2P. They are probably going to just release a new game called Anthem 2.0 and quietly close down the servers for Anthem 0.1

ahaha I dought it saddly.. I wish they would cause with the other things you said, they didn't affect me as much as long as I could play with my buddies as well. The demo showed me the shooting and movement felt so good in combat its just all the other stuff.

Also little fun thing I saw, anthem was like 30 at one point now its back up to 60 lol?

i liked the game, perfectly casual console game, just destroyed by complete lack of endgame content.

was hoping they would finish the remake before ps5 was released, but i guess that wont happend, and im not buying the game again for a new console generation.

Some new info re: Anthem via Twitter recently. Here's a vid:

Personally there wasn't any new info that perked me up. Possible this, possible that. More to come. Blah blah blah. New concept art for a faction and their region which actually doesn't mean a thing. FF did that near the end to keep The9 and what player base was left get the word out and keep funding ongoing. None of it went anywhere. I doubt any of it was even put in the engine let alone in the game. That's my feeling with Anthem and their team. Call me when they actually have game play footage from actual players and not something made in house.

I wonder how the story will be, bioware do have a reputation for interesting stories in games!
