Those hoping Anthem would offer a robust character creation system are out of luck, as the game’s developer BioWare says that players will choose from a pre-generated list of heads for their human avatar in the upcoming looter shooter RPG.
Why are games feeling like we're going backwards?
Maybe you should take a look at their customisation beffore you make uninformed comments. The customisation is ffar and above any game ive seen. not being able to customize the pilot that you never even see in game? OMG MURDER, FIRE, RAPE! Feels more like you are goin backwards. You are not using the resources of our current time, as in checking if you even see your pilot and how the rest of the customization is.
Wow, someone's offended.
Ever seen Black Desert ?
I know ive posted somewhere on this site. But dammit it'll be a waste not to post it for this dumpster fire of a comment, so here goes. what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on This site is now dumber for having to read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul
@ Michiel "not being able to customize the pilot that you never even see in game? OMG MURDER, FIRE, RAPE! " We see the knees as they climb into the suit. You might think they would at least let us customize the knees. EA and Bioware are ruining the world. In case it's needed, s/
iff you guys are gonna cry over no knee pads and gloves, keep at it. Meanwhile ill enjoy playing games while people are buthurt over no kneecaps :( If you think not being able to customize your kneepads and gloves in a game where you hardly even see them is goin backwards while there are a bazillion other customisable things for your mek then you are just nitpicking for the sake of nitpicking or it being EA. im not offended at all, I just think its bs to say games are going backwards in this specific case. @emme yeah I seen black desert, which is actually not the same game as Anthem. Not sure why u even mention a asian mmorpg in this discussion. BD is a whole other story which im not gonna go into here. You guys just love to hate EA, thats all there is to it. and when they actually make a decent game you still keep going instead of putting your pride away and saying, hey the customization is actually pretty good for the meks. Even if EA would create the greatest game of all time you guys would just bash them anyway, because its EA. If you disregard anything else in the game besides not being able too get kneepads and gloves, for once I will agree with the mainstream media, that those specific gamers are entitled dickheads. @sins 1. it wasnt rambling. 2. you are not adding anything to the discussion. besides saying you disagree without backing up your statement or should i say your rambling? cause what u typed is actually way more rambling than what i wrote. 3. if you have nothing of substance in your post. just type: "I disagree" next time and be done with it.
Wait a minute, why does it give you ANY customization at all?? Nobody ever sees your pilot, including yourself, as far as I'm aware. When you are in town, you are in First person, and there are no other players there. The cutscenes remain in first person as well. When you aren't in town, you're in your Javelin. I don't know when anyone would ever see your character's face at all...?
@ Michiel I was being sarcastic. I'm in agreement with you. Although I'm still hopeful of some sick knee customisation DLC down the line! /s
Everyone wants this game to fail so bad because it’s EA but let’s wait and see. Personally this is not a problem for me as I always choose gameplay,graphics and fun factor over customizations and skins. And so far what I have seen from this game the graphics and gunplay look really good. I can say this tho, I hope the characters has a weight feel to them like Killzone2 giving the nature of the shooter. I think this game will be a hit regardless of what reviews think, obviously you can already predict metacriticq User review score being user bombed by bias EA haters. Not to say the hate to EA is not justified, but if they can deliver a good game it will benefit all of us as gamers as we will have one more awesome title to choose from this year regardless of which console you own.
Did you try the public test/beta? I found it to feel very generically... and sure didn't feel like KZ2.
the game feels nothing like KZ2. Maybe the juggernaut a bit more (didnt play jug in the demo). The most it feels like is mass effect imo, if you take away the mobility, but a bit more action packed. @inmate i didnt find it generic at all. Really liked the priming and detonating mechanics, which encourages teamplay or a build who can do both well. and moving around was really enjoyable.
You literally never see you pilot's face...Go cry about something else
@yarbie They're moving forward; you might be asking them to walk in the wrong direction. https://www.vg247.com/2018/...
Who cares you can’t even see your pilot for most of the game. The hate for this game is truly unreal.
That's because there is problem after problem, more so than there was with destiny and the divisions releases, it isn't good.
Destiny isn't EA... Division.. isn't EA. Battlefield 4 had issues, it got fixed up nicely. BFV Has issues, it's getting fixed up with patches and new content every couple of weeks. Battlefront 2.. well I played it for a bit, but.. I haven't gone back to it since release.
Yes and no, i mean, when ive played the demo ive seen alot of problems there, like glitches, dissappearing enemies in the middle of combat, frame rate issues, and overall the graphics are beautiful, but dull, the world is beautiful and yet doest feel alive.
I really hope this game does well just to spite these neckbeard activists., N4g is the worse place to discuss gaming. EA=BAD
This is the only site I know lol. Could you recommend any others ?
I like the truegaming subreddit.
I have no issue with this. You can choose male or female and its voice acted protagonist with tons of choice on appearance with the javelins.
The customization for your javelins is ridiculously in depth and people are whining about a pilot you’ll probably never see?
"ridiculously in depth"? You should check the Armored Core series since PSOne until nowdays. Anthem is just "okay".
If Anthem is OK, then what about all the other big name games that are less in depth these days? Not many games let you change the color on so many pieces of gear (they have like 6 sections for each javelin), let alone change the fabric / material / pattern on the individual section. As for the pilot, the base is in first person and you only see them a bit during cutscenes, while 90% of the time you see your javelin. They also have like 21 or so pre-generated faces to choose from for each gender, so it's not like you're having to pick A or B only. https://i.redd.it/84lj9dw0p...
Thats relevant because?
99% of the time your pilot is masked. I'll let you figure out the rest.
They give you tons of pre made pilots to choose from. Like some said you do not see much of their face anyway.
Why am I feeling that they will later announce that one of the pre generated head is LGBT.
You forgot Q and now I'm triggered
The pilot will have to deal.
Yeah customisation is key in games now, if your not putting it in a co op or multiplayer game so I can look different to the rest, then I don't want to know. I'm not buying the game, it's division 2 for me..
Dude you see your pilot maybe like one percent total of the game if that lol it would be like crying about your destiny character looks when they are in armor 99 percent of the game. Its all about the javelin which has a ridiculous amount of customization options so I believe you were never interested in the game to begin with and was just looking for another excuse to justify your hate for the game.
They give you an option for male voice or female voice first. After you complete the first mission then they let you choose a preset face. Like the image provided below. https://ibb.co/wwxNRqG
WTF! that dude looks like Zack Efron!!!
LOL yup. Ain't he sexy. The thing I dislike is the majority have the same comb over hairstyle. But oh well, it is what it is.
But you don't see yourself.. and noone sees you...? Weird.
The asian is aways weird. That´s why I barely use asian faces on character customizations...
Makes sense, you wont see your avatar most of the time anyway. However what should be more worrying as Yong Yea has pointed out is that Bioware keep dodging the questions regarding its MT's and the issues that wont be fixed before launch. I cant see this game being a success, at least not the success that EA wants, I also think that somehow EA managed to pull another Titan-Fall 2 on Anthem with the release of Apex.
the mtx questionmarks are understandable, im still bit worried about that (evven though i will not spend money on cosmetics). Apex might reduce the hype for Anthem a bit but I think the genres are far enough apart that it wont matter (much).
Oh, noes. What do we do now?
According to N4g, boycott the game.
Does anyone remember the progress and unlocking of items
I won´t deny it... it is odd after knowing the Mass Effect series from Bioware not being able to customize your character. I know that they are different games... but it is just odd.
To be fair, you don't actually see your human character in Anthem. You're seeing them in their mech suit. The mech suits are highly customizable.
If you don´t see your avatar... why there is face presets for the pilot...?
I see a lot of people that would rather see bioware use a lot of resources on a system with almost no effect on the game than actually making a compelling game. You cant even see your character.. Why on earth would they spend resources on a more robust character creation system when it wont affect your experience at all. Priorities people.
thats not the reason they say it. They just are too proud to say something positive about EA. I mean no one was complaining you couldnt customize Kratos his nosehair or change his underpants.
Maybe.. But that is kind of my point. People are trying to hold this game to some kind of standard it was never meant to fulfill. While at the same time pointing a finger on the more critical issues with the game. Or rather that they are not being talked about. Like how the flow of gameplay feels crude and outdated. Or how a game that requires you to fire a gin 90% of the time has lackluster Gun mechanics. I. E. Places said resources would be much better spent.
this game is looking more and more bland every time I look at it... I wish Bioware could get passed just heads. I guess you don't need much customization if you are in the metal box the entire time.
Next Anthem will be like: now the new developed engine and the new technology will let you customize your own character as you wish. Only on Anthem 2 hurry and get your pre order and join the journey of your customized hero. I hate this.
so you hate a hypothetical theory that you made up?
The title of this game should be "Caca".
Ea cannablized this with apex period
You never see yourself,.. and neither do other players,.. so even preselected options are redundant.
They will probably let you customize in the future if you pay real money.
That is lame. “Here is a game you get to play with thousands and thousands of people and guess what ??!!!! You all look the same!! Cool huh?!”
except you never see other players characters only their javelins, and you will not look the same in your javelins. For the rest you are correct.
I don’t recall seeing my pilot at all in the demo so why is this an issue? I swear people find the most ridiculous things to complain about. The customization in Anthem is far beyond games in the same class like Destiny, Borderlands,Division.
Yeah I’m good I wanna look different at all time but I guess that not happening.
it actually is happening. just not the 1% of gameplay you play without javelins.
Some Destiny fans probably came up with this.
You don't even see your character so.... How does this garbage get approved?
This game is DOA
I hate pre-generated heads, Is there an option to wear a helmet for the whole game?
Do you ever even see your character outside of the armor? If not why are people losing their damn minds over this?
