Feburary is the month of bomb after bomb. Crackdown 3, Jump Force, now Anthem? Damn. I legit feel bad for the developers. (Generally not the publishers though, especially EA)

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

Anthem is the kind of game I -might- want to try out after a couple of years of updates and patches, but definitely not something I want to experience while they figure out how to update it. I did that enough with the Destiny games.

Poor Bioware, though. Either stuck on Anthem until they milk it dry (assuming it succeeds) or most likely studio closure if it fails. As a consumer, it's a lose lose because I have no interest in loot shooters, especially from EA of all publishers.

@Ralizah I've read/watched some impressions, and what a disappointment it is from what I've heard. As if Bioware is a shell of its former self, with EA in full control.

@EvilLucario seems people do not care for the new Far Cry either.

@WebHead The general verdict for FC seems to be not bad, but not as good as 5 either; just more of the same.

@Octane Can't say I'm surprised. Anthem looks incredibly generic, to the point where it comes off like a parody of your average Western AAA GaaS blockbuster.

EA acquisition is the kiss of death to any promising studio.

@Ralizah And it's unfortunate, because the original trailer looked pretty neat. The design of the suits is pretty neat. And it looks good in motion; flying around. Even the promotional artwork looks pretty sweet. Too bad there isn't an interesting game around it, and that's on top of the always-online live service nonsense.

Metro Exodus seems to be the crown jewel this month.

??? That was my favorite section of the game, with more creative puzzles, the best use of the game's platforming, and some really good boss fights. The big dudes can seem like damage sponges if you don't use the gravity spell on them, though, but...that goes for all the big enemies. The first KH really reaquires that you use magic a lot to get through it.

Anthem is great fun with friends! It's already dropping in price too. Currently $50 on Newegg, wouldn't be surprised if it was $40 by April

Also Dirt Rally 2.0 is terrific! It's brutally difficult but rewarding at the same time. Like a racing "Dark souls" I guess.

Looks like Anthem is becoming the next Fallout 76.

And this is why I do not like these kind of games at least at launch.

If PS5 is only one sky i expect $399. Sony and customers are comfortable with that price and a global recession is looming.

@Grumblevolcano critically panned? Check. Woefully unfinished? Check. Redd likes it? Check. Yep, definitely fallout 76.

@CanisWolfred to be fair i never like boss battles in any game. Never did. I see them as frustrating annoyances to get over with to get back to fun. But, that's normal in any game.... This ones particularly boring like they're little reward for actually slogging through it. Just boring saney linear rooms with same dmg sponge battles. Bald mtn feels like ursula again which was annoying the first time. And i know there's like 8 more bosses back to back. No real adventuring or exploring, just boss combat with a boring combat system. Yeah, 8 do spam gravity (staff main choice in the beginning) but it didn't help for cheap bosses where you need to relentlessly heal.

I may abandon it and move to the next kh.... Though that's chain of memories.... That might be even more annoying....

Bosses need to be tough but fair for me to like them. So, for example, the bosses in Cuphead, character action game bosses, or late-game monsters in a MH game, where you have to learn to read their patterns and defeat them fair and square. Or the bosses in many Shin Megami Tensei games, which often force the player to go back to the drawing board and re-evaluate their whole approach to team-building. Etrian Odyssey bosses often have this quality to them as well.

They can be annoying in other types of games, though. Any sort of tactical RPG, for example. Boss fights are the worst part of both the Fire Emblem and Valkyria Chronicles series, because the systems in those games are designed around strategizing against and defeating groups of weaker enemies, so lone overpowered units just end up being a pain in the keister and feel borderline broken at times.
