The free Resident Evil 2 DLC is HARD.

Like, try again from the start 30 times hard.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

@ThanosReXXX Well, I haven't found such a gun yet I don't think, but I would hope such a thing exists. And even then I'm not sure it'd make things easier.

@DarkRula Oh, it exists alright. Scroll back a couple of pages, and find the 30 minute playthrough video that @Dezzy posted. The guy that made the video shows gameplay with that gun. It's hilarious.

I'll certainly see about finding it, then.

@ThanosReXXX Yeah, and honestly, my point is just that it doesn't look like a $60 game. Saints Row 4, inFamous, and arguably Sunset Overdrive & the Just Cause series have already taken the base experience that Crackdown tried to offer and added more layers on top of it all, so there's genuinely no excuse as to why they couldn't try to evolve the formula. I already own most of those games, and what ones I could get for less than $60 total. I personally expected better.

Went back to CD3 today. My neighbor and I were both kid free today so we figured we'd plow thru the campaign in coop mode. It does get better at the end when you are super OP with all the weapons and abilities but still becomes very repetitive relatively fast. Was a satisfying weekend romp but I have no desire to go back, deleted after the credits rolled. Can definitely recommend a play through if you get it on game pass, but hardly worth a full price $60 tag imo. The foundation is great and I hope they dont kill the franchise as I can clearly see why people like it. We did play about 8 or so multiplayer matches but it was a pretty unpleasant experience to put it mildly. Hope they add more modes/match types/maps for people as its barebones at the moment and the much touted cloud based damage leaves A LOT to be desired. Ahh well, Back to Anthem

@CanisWolfred Fair enough. In the end, it also comes down to taste, or at least for a part. I also own Sunset Overdrive, but I never play it anymore, because I hate the "wire surfing" mechanics and the iffy camera that comes with it, which more often than not made me slide back in the exact direction that I just came from.
I found the gameplay too nervous in that respect, so I simply never got good at that, and in the end, I gave up. The game looks cool, but it just isn't my kinda game.

Oh, well. For all the Crackdown 3 disappointed people: at least we can now download Bloodstained - Curse of the Moon, Super Bomberman R and Star Wars Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy from Games with Gold, so still enough other choices to keep us busy...

So my 10 hour trial with Anthem is up so figured I'd give my impressions of it.

Gameplay wise it's extremely fun. The flying, the movement especially is great. The gunplay is good and the weapons have a decent variety to them. Enemies for the most part are very bullet spongey though. The missions are pretty repetitive unfortunately. Mainly go here scan this, kill a wave of enemies, find the 5 glowing orbs, return them to this spot, another wave, move to next section etc. Enemy variety is lacking as well at least from what I've played.

Playing with others is where the game shines and I think it's going to be a bit of a slog trying to play this solo. Thankfully matchmaking is available for every activity to play with random but I think at the higher levels it's going to be very difficult without mics/coordination from a team.

Story wise it's pretty thin. Standard evil guys found a source of unlimited power, stop them! There are dialog choices but from what I've seen they have no impact whatsoever on the story itself. This definitely isn't Mass Effect or God of War. Also there is lore throughout the world in the form of codexes (codecies??) that full in the gaps much like Destiny which I personally don't like.

Both graphics and sound are top notch. The facial animations are much improved from Andromeda and the world itself looks fantastic but has very little variety unfortunately. Playing with a headset the 'thump" of the weapons is very satisfying overall and the environment sounds are good as well.

I think this game is going to review much like vanilla Destiny 1 or The Division, 6s and 7s. It's not going to get any favors especially being made by EA/Bioware. In the court of public opinion it's going to most like be polarizing. Ranging from "see told you so hahah, ea sucks bioware sucks, this game is trash lolz" to the hardcore who don't mind playing hours at a time and Grinding out for the next great loot drop.

Unless you're going in with the right expectation and want a looter shooter thats a work in progress will evolve and change over time but is light initially it's tough to recommend from what I've played. Granted it was only 10 hours but was the full game apparently. I'm still on board and will be playing on Friday but this one is going to be divisive for sure much like Destiny/Division/Crackdown have been.

A bit disappointing for me personally but not totally unexpected. Looking forward to having a game like this that I can play for an hour or 2 a day with friends and just grind much like Destiny and Division were for me.

Sorry for the long post

@redd214 Sorry for the long post? You've seen @NEStalgia's and my frequent text walls, right?

Very informative read, so thank you.

Don't tell @NEStalgia that you actually had even the slightest bit of fun with an EA game, though...

@ThanosReXXX you're welcome, I don't buy a ton of EA games but I have fun with them NFS Games, Madden, Peggle, PVZGW all a blast to play, and haven't been bothered by MTX in any of them. I'm not a card carrying member of the instant EA hate mob. He seems like the kind of person who complains just to do it sometimes so it's no bother lol

EA aren't all bad. They just make money grubbing decisions because they saw how rich Rockstar were getting with GTA Online and keep trying to copy them to disastrous results.

That's how I see it, anyway.

@redd214 Yeah, got quite a few of these NFS games myself, albeit only on the previous gen console. And only because they're more or less the spiritual successors to the Burnout games, and because I always liked the old NFS games, from back in the PC and GameCube days.

I also used to play a lot of their other games, like the James Bond games, Medal of Honor, Dead Space, Battlefield, Dragon Age, and so on, but the latter more because of Bioware than because of EA.
And I always loved the SSX games, so I've got all of those as well, but this generation, I still haven't invested in any EA games so far.

@redd214 Considering how Destiny 1 had content cut to sell later, and The Division was raked over the coals for its early performance, and both games saw a sharp drop in players until their first major expansions, I think the criticism Anthem's garnered is warranted. It wasn't acceptable back them, it's not acceptable now. They shunted it out the door to bolster their fiscal year-end reports, and get a boost to their EA Origins Access subscriber numbers. Looking at their post-launch plans, in 6 months to a year, it'll be at the point it needed to be at launch, just like Destiny 1. At the very least, there's no need for anyone interested to purchase the game now.

@ThanosReXXX Nah, I don't hate all EA games, I just hate EA (and the fact that they almost never produce actual games anymore....) I actually quite like many of EA's actual games they used to make, and that's what frustrates me about them. They have a stable of great IPs and some fantastic games in their legacy....and they mostly just refuse to make them, and on the off chance they do they just use it as a carrot on a stick for micropayments. Mirror's Edge, C&C, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Dungeon Keeper (Molyneaux, though, that's another can of worms ) lots of good stuff....that never sees the light of day. Or at least not properly buried in their dreadful business practices.

@redd214 That does sound disappointing. I believed them at the Bioware E3 roundtable when they talked about commitment to story, single player experience, blah blah. "It's still a Bioware game!" riiight. I knew it was just going to be EA's Destiny (fun timing as Activision jettisons their Destiny... ) but a kind of samey looter shooter still sounds a bit disappointing (I actually preordered this ages ago despite my hesitations.)

@DarkRula Nah, EA went down that path long before GTAV:O. If anything Rockstar copied them but managed to not break it like they do.

NEStalgia

redd214

@ThanosReXXX yeah if there is one series I'm a sucker for its definitely need for speed. In the 20 or so years they've been coming out I think I've only not played 1 or 2 of them (not including mobile/handheld ones). Hot pursuit 2 back in the ps2/gamecube/Xbox days is in my top 5 all time games list. Shame they've haven't recaptured the magic from HP2, Most Wanted and the Underground games.

@CanisWolfred I was there at launch for both Destiny and the Division so I know what I'm getting into

redd214

redd214

@NEStalgia while I do think the core gameplay mechanics are better than either of those were at launch, anyone going in expecting a early GOTY candidate will be put off by it. Like I said I'm not going in blind probably have 20 hours put into it between the demos so I have my expectations in check and am looking forward to it.

Given we don't have any future release dates, I wonder if next month's Inside Xbox will be a big one.

If it's early in the month, the next Forza Horizon 4 expansion will definitely be there.
