No, Forbes, Bioware Fixing Anthem Is Not A Bad Thing

We tear down the dismal article from Forbes about Anthem’s recent announcement of the delay of the game’s roadmap, and how this, in fact, ISN’T a bad sign for the game. - Tim @CD

How much does EA pay these days for these sort of articles?

Fixing their game isn't a bad thing but a lot of these fixes shouldn't be needed post launch anyway. Having to fix loot in a loot based shooter? As a huge fan of the looter shooter genre, this just makes my decision to avoid the game justified. It's blatantly obvious the game wasn't ready for release.

Also going by EA's track record of GAAS products that have underperformed and lack microtransaction potential like Battlefront 2, this postponement will most likely mean they are scaling back on their content offerings, something they can technically get away with as what their roadmap provided was incredibly lofty in what fans can expect. It's literally Battlefront 2 all over again, to try and put a positive spin on this is hilariously shilly.

LOL but nothing was really fixed.

And the way the acted during their live stream? Pathetic.

Simply put, Bioware isn't the company they once were, and are so out of touch with their fan base that it boggles the mind.

What a shitty f***** list! Most of the games on it were great fun. Bullshit list.

chantii_mmohaven327d ago

yep this is truly a b*tthurt list :/

MadLad327d ago

I think the only one I agreed on was Anthem, and even that isn't horrendous.

Knushwood Butt328d ago

Anthem; I'd forgotten that game existed. I remember thinking the trailer was BS though; turns out I was right.

Cueil326d ago

the game wasn't bad though

RavenWolfx327d ago

"Worst big budget games" and immediately lists Genshin Impact, a game that has $4 billion in revenue.

blackblades327d ago

$3 billion and counting along with alot of users. I disagree with that being on the list. This list is just a person opinion without merit

monkey602327d ago

I havent played Genshin Impact and Mafia 3 was alright. The rest though I kind of agree with.
I loved the 1st Kane and Lynch and I could not understand how the 2nd game was as bad as it was.

Including indies I’ve bought like more than 20 games, good deals all around.

P_Bomb852d ago

I’ve overindulged too! Gonna pump the brakes on this next round. Unless there’s a PS+ discount. Need a cheap sub for my kid so I’m not always changing primaries.

solideagle852d ago (Edited 852d ago )

could you please suggest good indie games (which are on sale)? I love JRPGs or action RPGs but I can play almost any genre e.g. Transistor is £3.74 which I think is a steal :)

shinoff2183852d ago

Check out earthlock. Its pretty good

Old school jrpg try cosmic star heroine I really like that one

Aloymetal852d ago

Disco elysium, man eater, inside, limbo
Dead cells, observer, to name a few

LoveSpuds852d ago

Don't sleep on Darkest Dungeon, Child of Morta or Spiritfarer.

Although it won't be on sale, the best indie I have ever played is release in a week or so, it may be 20 quid but you have to play Hades.

GhostofHorizon852d ago

Told my partner to stop me from browsing. We'll see how that goes, the first part of the sale already got me.

ElvisHuxley852d ago (Edited 852d ago )

Anthem 85% off? Thought they went free to play. Has the game gotten any better?
Edit-Nvm, it's Europe anyway.

Hellcat2020852d ago

The second phase of sales is for all regions
It's just not yet showing up in the ps store

Servbot41852d ago

They abandoned Anthem. Typical EA.

CobraKai852d ago

I can’t believe they’re still trying to sell it
