Thou shalt have no other gods before me. For I the LORD thy Sun God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of cosmic prestige upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.





Hereís the deal: The OP is done here because I just have to admit it, this game is horrendous. It will go down as one of the worst launches in the history of gaming. Probably the worst launch of 2019 without a doubt.

It should have been cool. It wasnít. Devs have been pulled off the game, every update was pushed back, the trajectory of the game didnít turn out to be anything like being advertised.

Long story short, thread should stay open in case this game turns around. I wouldnít hold my breath though. This one looks like it cannot be salvaged.

Itís unfortunate but oh well. The game is truly something awful. Carry on goons.

If no dance, then please just shut the game down, Bioware. Just don't even bother. Please put a dance hall in the game.

everything's cool


Even though this game feels like it's going to suck, I'm going to buy it and play the poo poo out of it because I can't help but play loot shooters. Also there's a nonzero chance the story/world might actually be cool considering Bioware.

Everyone else I know thinks this game is going to be awful and I don't even have a good argument for them to get it anyway.

I also keep buying Halo games so my opinion is probably garbage

Yeah, me neither. I enjoy the loot hunt.

I was pretty disappointed when I heard no PVP. I didn't really understand it, but I've come around on the idea now. If they can make an immersive world with interesting loot and a strong endgame (pretty please), then I can live without PVP.

I can't see how they plan to support new content now that EA is backing away from loot boxes. Hopefully the game is fun and, HK-47 is unlockable.

Just about every journalism rag really enjoyed the demo on the floor. I just saw this too:

This game will get an 8 or 9/10 guaranteed.

The review will have nothing about the game except that it sold incredibly well.

Thatís the future.

Sadly, Bioware said no. So, no adopting, no pregnancy, no mech on mech action.

A huge misstep that takes away from the realism of this game.

Should you be alive, if it's even possible to continue to exist in these sealed lands, one day perhaps you will make atonement for what you've done.

Great OP. The EA conference was a mess and I felt trepidation coming out of that, but every preview after that has been extremely positive of how the game plays I'm really excited to see more. Especially of the other Javelins.

Whoa. Please show respect to the term MMO!

This game has no romance, no trading, no PVP, no social hub, and no loot boxes!

This is a RPG.

I want to want this but EA/Bioware and I already have one disappointing shooter looter in my life.

I will probably end up preordering anyway cause I have an unhealthy obsession with being present at the start of an online game.

The year is 2018. Bioware is making shooters, and Assassin's Creed has become the romantic choices RPG. These are strange, dark times.

I only want two things: new neck bones for Lowtax, and for you to shut the fuck up about pretending characters are lesbians to prove your wokeness.


This is Bioware so it's going to live or die on the characters and story.

After their last few outings (Andromeda, Eternal Throne, Inquisition), I'm not optimistic.

I'm not big on multiplayer focused shooting games because I have terrible aim and have no friends that play video games. I wish Bioware had been working on maybe a new Dragon Age instead of this but I'm still gonna give it a shot when it comes out because its good to try new things

Pretty exciting that Bioware has been tapped to rip off a Bungie game. Will Anthem be the Fortnite to Bungie's PUBG... or Radical Heights????



Pretty cool of them to boldly remove loot boxes now that they're so hated that actual US Congress members were prepping legislation against them. So brave.
