This game looks to be the poster child for pay2win and micro transactions. No thanks. Like I said in an earlier thread...eagerly awaiting WoW Classic


Ah yes, the MMO that completely ruined the genre

News Comments > BioWare Offers Anthem Post-Launch Thoughts

21. Re: BioWare Offers Anthem Post-Launch Thoughts Mar 20, 2019, 16:32 Osc8r
 
I personally find the gunplay and combat mechanics FAR better in Anthem than Division.

In the Division 2 guns still sound like toys, and have no real weight or impact... and the gameplay is just a matter of running from cover to cover to cover. Meh. Definitely not satisfying to me.

Just a shame that Anthem didn't get anything else right.

I'd take Far Cry New Dawn gunplay over them both (and the audio absolutely destroys both Div and Anthem), but it's another game that lacks content and variety.

Maybe they'll insert another "bug" that makes drop rates somewhat reasonable. By all accounts the only time the end game has been fun is when one of these "bugs" pops up.

But even then legendary loot in this game isn't all that legendary at all...

You find more interesting gear in Borderlands at like level 5.

And what do you do when you eventually get a few decent legendary pieces? The higher difficulties drop chance doesn't even come close to offsetting the additional time investment (read: mob hp inflation), so you basically just grind on the same mobs in the Rage stronghold on the same difficulty and quit before the boss in a hope to get more legendary pieces that are virtually pointless anyway...

But that's if you can even get into a fresh Rage stronghold, most of the time you ended up in a Rage stronghold that's in progress due to everyone else in the game doing the exact same thing, so you're basically playing watch the loading screens.

The whole things a fkn mess. So much wasted potential.

Hunter Call of the Wild (same engine) was a very unique, enjoyable game especially in co-op... so really looking forward to this.

Outward also goes into early access on the same day, which looks rather intriguing. Open world survival RPG with co-op and gives me some conan exile vibes - just hope it has more content and things to do.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your family member Blue. I recently lost my two beloved canines to cancer and it's still one of the hardest things to go through in life.

Best wishes to yourself and your family.

Rest in peace Gunnar-man.

Tried playing Vermintide for the first time last week. I could not get into it. Was it just bad, or have I left this genre behind?

Na, i felt the same way. Played the first and second during the free play weekend and was done with both of them within a day - repetitive, shallow and with limited maps.

Endgame is just repeating the same shit over and over, hoping to get better loot so you can do the same shit over and over but against enemies with inflated HP bars

Isn't that the end game for every game?

Not if there's PVP, even better loot at higher difficulties, bigger/harder bosses or zones, crafting+trading, gear locked dungeons, world bosses, raids etc.

Also there's other ways of increasing difficulty other than just multiplying enemy HP bars by a factor of 10... for the whole 3 dungeons?!

Even with a gear score of like 730 all i do is speed runs of GM1 because it's by far the most efficient way of getting a chance at legendaries. Do the top stronghold, clear all mobs, quit once you reach the boss. Rinse and repeat. Fun times!

They do make good trailers though... just a shame about the gameplay.

Lack of content

All missions felt the same

Lack of loot

Loading screens

Having to constantly go back to the pointless hub to equip gear / accept another mission

When you do finally manage to get the super rare LEGENDARY loot it's anti climactic anyway, as it's neither game changing or vastly different to the Masterwork gear you have 500 copies of.
- There's NO PVP, so why do you need such boring, spreadsheet balanced loot?

Endgame is just repeating the same shit over and over, hoping to get better loot so you can do the same shit over and over but against enemies with inflated HP bars?

Meh. So much wasted potential.

Battle Royale with randomly generated guns.

That actually sounds pretty cool...

Agreed, and it could be HUGE. Would basically be a better version of Apex if done right.

That said, I want more co-op B1 style...and get the Tiny Tina DLC writer involved.

I was quite enjoying the game until the patch... they basically made monsters on higher GM difficulties just super bullet spunges, yet they haven't changed the loot tables at all... just more blue and purple trash and even less oranges. 20 strongholds later and not a single legendary or meaningful upgrade.

And i'm pretty much done.

Only thing left to do is to grind for eternity to get gear that allows me to be able to kill monsters with even more inflated HP... pass.


If you are gun heavy I felt it might be a small nerf. On your actually skills it was a big boost, it is now back to a skills game throughout vs changing late game to a gun game.


Na, im a skill heavy storm and it was a huge nerf, sure, it says I do more damage in GM2 strongholds but only because monsters HP have been heavily inflated by a much larger margin.

I used to do nothing but GM2 stronghold runs and GM3 freeroam, but now GM2 mobs just make the game feel like an RSI inducing chore.

GM1 strongholds I could easily do solo though... so it's either a choice of piss easy runs or a full on snore fest just to try and get better gear, to make the next level or snore fest level boring?

What a terrible patch.

I feel like Epic thinks they can rule the world with their lucky Fortnite success. Don't they yet realize Fortnite is in its death-throws being murdered by Apex Legends, I wonder?

Fornite is still killing it, even with Apex around (infact, Fortnite currently has 90k more Twitch viewers than Apex).

And they are investing in their store knowing full well that Fortnite's success wont last forever.

That said, I hate Epic's store, it lacks in so many area's compared to Steam.

-edit- my spelling still sucks.

I really wish they'd add more content and things to do, the mechanics, building and world itself are all enjoyable but the content is lacking and the dungeons are terrible.

Definitely an improvement over the first, but the guns still sound like shit and have no real weight/impact when fired. Was hoping this was just limited to the lower levels but tried the geared pre-made high level characters and some of them were even worse - the endgame sniper rifle sounded like some kind of toy.

Probably check it out at some point down the road.

IMO if i'm playing a game with one life, i want each fight to be intense, lasting and meaningful... where you have multiple opportunities to re-act and outplay your opponent, not just boom boom thank you mam. Personally i feel the COD style mechanics are the least suited to the BR genre.

/rant
Eh?
You have plenty opportunities in that game. How long have you played it? You dont really seem to know it.
The classes all have their special abilities that can give you an awesome advantage, *if* used right.
Fights are far quicker over in PUBG or Fortnite than in Apex. And then you also dont have the 2 possibilities to get rezzed, nor can you heal as fast as in Apex in any other game. You can actually make very bad mistakes and still live through them because of all your options. The tight packed map also gives you plenty of options to outplay your opponents or to run and lick your wounds (or get your teammates back).
If you think this is CoD style, then theres nothing to change your mind, since you already ignore all reason.

For starters, i'm not the one that had a problem with fights being over quickly - quite the opposite actually.

Secondly, i already acknowledged that being able to be rez'd was one of the better things about the game.

Thirdly, yeah... maybe put down your joystick and invest in some reading classes and get back to me when you've had a chance to level it up a bit.

-edit-
Time for another random twitch sample:
Fortnite - 170k
Apex - 110k
PUBG - 50k
Blackout - 10k

Funny how the only game that's really suffering since Apex's launch (beyond the initial new game hype period) is Blackout... you know, the game with very similar core mechanics including movement and gunplay.
