    I just have no enthusiasm for Anthem, and I am usually one of the first in line for Bioware games. It looks pretty and all but I just get such a strong Destiny vibe off everything they have shown, and that is just not my type of game.

    It's a multiplayer thing that requires you to be online even if you're on your own. Hard pass.

    And I hate the "games as service" bullcrap with a vengeance.

    Anthem was designed to compete with Destiny. I'm personally waiting on Borderlands 3 if I want a lootbased co-op shooter.

    The message needs to be sent to EA , they junked what could have been a great Star Wars game all because it didn't have multiplayer and was a single story based game. EA believes its all dead but as folks have pointed out the last couple years Horizon Zero Dawn , God of War etc have shown that is bullshit. EA will need to see Anthem crash n burn that people want good fucking games and not cash grabs.

    Speaking of EA, man, that demo of NBA live 19 sure makes me wanna switch side from 2k.

    And really, there are no good guys there lol between EA and 2K, both are disgustingly greedy companies so i don't feel as bad. (a bit though, EA you know)

    I resent this. EA is definitely wrong about singler player games but that doesn't make multiplayer ones bad.

    EA clearly changed the company and forced some issues, but not that one.

    I'm actually really excited about Anthem, and I find that ever since EA course corrected on Star Wars: Battlefront II it's been a pretty solid experience.

    That said I'd love to see a third person single player game, preferably one dealing with bounty hunters and the underworld.
    Pull List:

    Marvel Comics: Black Panther, Captain America, Avengers, Invaders, Conan the Barbarian, Savage Sword of Conan, Savage Avengers, and tentatively Powers of X/House of X.
    DC Comics: The Green Lantern, Doomsday Clock, Heroes In Crisis

    Yeah, EA screwing over that Star Wars game annoys me as much as anyone else but I can't help but feel like a lot of people are taking their frustrations out on Anthem (or MP games in general). "Good games" are not a synonym for, "single player" and cash grabs are not limited to multiplayer.

    The existence of multiplayer games isn't the problem. EA being entirely focused on twisting the knife at every opportunity is the problem.

    The sad part is Battlefront 2's been a good game from day one. But the shitty business model completely overshadowed everything else.

    You're just going to bring up sad memories.

    So I've spent the past few days playing the Anthem demo. The story and characters just go in one ear and out the other (though Bioware hasn't told a story that I cared about since DA: Origins) but the actual gameplay...?

    Star Wars : Battlefront 2 is DOA anyhow...once that whole loot box crap came out the game would never recover. As some have pointed out EA has fucked that Star Wars license to hell and in 6 years has 2 games to show for it. Its stunning Disney hasn't stepped in and yanked it given how bad its been. Hell even the Rogue One writer claims that Disney should be stepping in and pulling that license given how they have pissed all over the license for 6 years.

    Yet its like Disney has stayed quiet , content to let the potential money they could make off a good game or games be wasted. Just stunning really.

    I can only imagine that Disney just isn't overly concerned with how the games do (as long as it doesn't blow up like the BF2 situation did). Just crank out something that'll put a few extra dollars in their pocket on the side.

    Really, if quality was their primary concern they probably wouldn't have given EA exclusive rights in the first place.

    When the Top 10 guy was leaving for The Know and gonna do videos under that ; someone brought up that a lot of their content creators had left and that Death Battle is all they had left. So it seems this is gonna be it moving forward. Like a Machinma ...times changed.

    I'm sure that Disney was looking at how well EA handles the Mass Effect games as well as Dragon Age. They were like ; EA seems to have something good here and can make money. This was before EA went to hell in a handbasket.
