The mediocre reception for the EA game Anthem is already affecting the price dus to lower people's interest. One of the biggest technology retailers in Germany had to decrease the price to 39 euros and place it in the discount bin.
- Anthem should have just been a free to play game, the way they were planning to make it in the beginning - probably would have done a lot better, Because with the reviews this game is getting, this thing is dead on arrival... It's going to bomb hard, and support for the game will die right after that, Trust me EA/Bio-ware is not going to pump money into a dead game, despite all the lies companies tell, when they say they will still support it after launch / No they will not if the sales tank... If you didn't buy this yet, just wait a week or two, it's going straight to the garbage bin and will be a lot cheaper then and a much better deal...
And this is the third big blunder from BioWare for EA, ME:A, Anthem and people keep forgetting about Star Wars: The Old Republic, that game was supposed to be a Warcraft killer, and it went free to play almost immediately, even though it was a great game, with a great story
Every MMORPG released after WoW was supposed to be the WoW killer.. that's a damn long list, ironic really as the only real WoW killer looks to be ActiBlizzard and the closest we've seen to one is a game that died and got reborn. Still, SWTOR is still receiving updates, pulling the trigger and going F2P when they did was probably one of their better decisions.
Swtor wasn’t a great game, it had a great story tho. Combat animations were stiff the engine they used was a cheap garbage engine for the game. They should have used unreal or built in house. I remember even with a beast pc the game ran like crap. It had almost no end game at launch too. I levelled two chars to 50 that’s how much I enjoyed the class stories. then quit the game and went right back to wow.
If you ask me, they havent made a good game since Dragon Age 2 Didnt play Star Wars The Old Republic though.
Some marriages just don’t work.
This is why people need to start demanding full games upon release. Companies will not keep their word with support when we trust them to. Some do, but definitely not the big ones that one would expect. Games like DriveClub and the support it received are rare.
Well that was fast, and by fast I mean immediately.
I don't think I've ever seen a game go directly into the bargain bin - not even Fallout 76, and we had far more information about how bad that game was prior to its release.
EA's reputation is at the turning point now. Kinda like Circuit city, you could not tell there executives anything until the stores where empty. Or people was shopping there and going to best buy and other to actually BUY.
It can stay in the bargain bin.
good. i haven't seen anyone even remotely hyped for this turd
I was hoping it would turn out good. Thought Bioware might be the ones to finally deliver on a game like this... Sigh...
You should meet my brother then. He wouldn’t shut up about it
You haven't even been looking then. Many people, including on this site have been hyped. With how many people are on my group, and various Anthem groups on Facebook says otherwise. I'm just glad the silent majority is just that. The majority.
It's actually fun with friends in short doses but yea the world feels weird with it limited to 4 in an instance should have been offline / online coop the mmo aspect isn't there
I wanted this to be good, so disappointed that it didn't subvert the majorities expectations, the premise was awesome.
The game went on sale here in the UK before it even launched with an additional £10 off preorders before a certain date which meant you could buy it for very cheap. It's a real damn shame to think this is what has become of Bioware but that's EA for you, where creativity and imagination come to wither and die.
They are still asking too much money for it.
I tried to like the game but not only is it a buggy mess the load screens are annoying and it’s so boring like there is no satisfaction in completing anything how did they stuff this one up? Did they not learn from past looter shooters and you think how mass effect andromeda turned out they would of made more of an effort to make sure this was great seems like they didn’t even try very disappointed
Lol, we shall see what Dale's are. It has bad word of mouth atm, but the internet is not the gaming majority. I hope it sell great! And maybe at $30 it will give some people on the fence the push they need to try it.
Agreed, I love the game. Tons of fun to be had, and it will only get better with updates, patches, and free content packs.
they said BFV underperformed due to lack of players' interest in SP. what's gonna be their excuse this time LOL
I think they said because they focused on the single player and couldn't get the battle royal finished for launch was the reason.
This seems fake...
To be fair it's on it's third release date. :)
Since the game is doing this bad, it would be good to put it on the other garbage bin called game pass.
i would've tried it if it was F2P
So it's exactly where it belongs. Good.
Reviews are untrustworthy, why does Crackdown get the same score as a broken game? They both have good gameplay. They both have lackluster story. But one is broken. The other is perfectly fine.
This was already debunked yesterday. It was a promotion to pay 39 after trade-in.
Gotta love fake news. Link though please?
You mean people jumping on the bandwagon of hatred for an EA game? got it... Games actually fun.. /shrug.
Yep. The hatewagon is strong with this game.
Discount bin is still better than garbage bin, where fallout 76 resides.
Lol oops. I know o saw multiple times that this game was supposed to be different. Can't say I'm surprised
EA and BioWare deserves each other.
This is false as people on reddit pointed out, it is a trade in a game and get anthem for 40 usd buuuuuuuuut the circle jerk never stops
Lol people mad about this game and haven't even played it
Good, garbage like this deserves to fail, shame that shills are pushing it for ea and biocrap
As I predicted.
I'm enjoying the gameplay for the most part - walking around the fort talking to people is a bit of a chore though
How many games need to flop for EA to understand they arent doing something right? ME:A, BF5, BattleFront 2, Anthem
The last good game from EA was Titanfall 2 yet it didn’t sell well. Ain’t life a beech
I’m thoroughly enjoying the game persoanlly. Looking forward to future content updates and I’ll just play other games in between like I do with Destiny. Yes it has many shortcomings that definitely deserve critique, but there’s also some obvious EA bashing going on with this game. I saw people bashing the voice acting, character models and facial animations. Nah, you’re making up stuff to pick on if you’re complaining about those things, they’re actually great.
I think free to play is the way to go with expansion as an extension to offering more and receiving money. That or provide ads in the game during gameplay like posters or loading screens saying who it is provided by.
not a discount, just because it is labeld as such, doesn't mean it really is one...
