Re: Anthem (BioWare) PS4, XB1, PC - 2/22/19

I was able to get in and finish the story missions in time. There is still another session later today and two more tomorrow. So I'll at least log on and see if my progress carries forward. Without saying anything about the game, I'll just say that I'm keeping my preorder

That's not good enough Matty….we need all the details. Glad you got in and looking forward to your DVD Talk Report. This and The Division 2 are on My Must Have List. I really feel there's more to the game than jus flying around, drop down, wipe out enemies and fly off to somewhere else.

Not sure just how much they're letting you toy with but I'd like to hear more on...
The Skill Tree and Fine Tuning of your Character attributes
Crafting, Loot & The Economic Part

Good luck and hope you have fun....

See where a Demo is coming Jan. 25th...for pre-orders and those with the subscription. Then following week on Feb. 1st demo for everyone.

This gives you a good idea how gear and loot work in the game.

I found the skill trees to be very generic and completely dumbed down. Now maybe when you get other javelins, they won't be, but it was disappointing to see how basic the skills were.

FYI, if you preordered this, you get access to the "VIP beta" the weekend of 01/25/19. I just got my email from BB about it with the code.

Hmmm I have it preordered from Target but haven't gotten anything yet. Thankfully it's still a ways off.

Is there anything out there that this can be compared to? I'm not expecting something like Borderlands Skill Trees but I heard you can fine tune your character in areas like stamina, health, armor, agility, etc...what about the areas of powers though?

This is 15 minutes of actual gameplay with the first mission...Alpha Build...with Storm, Interceptor and Colossus. By far this is the best one I've seen using their abilities and the importance of teamwork which you'll see in the second half of the video. Looks darn good....

Looks like a slightly less chaotic Warframe.

What's everyone getting this on (ps4/xbox/pc)? I'm leaning PC, but may end up on PS4. I'll wait until I see more about performance between pc and console versions before I settle on something.

I'm likely giving this a shot on PC.

Free steelbook with Best Buy preorder

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/steelbo...?skuId=6320260

Between that and the $10 reward certificate, I canceled my $40 Target preorder for XB1 and switched to Best Buy.

One area I was curious about was "Free Roam"...how much freedom to do stuff outside missions....apparently you can do a lot and also run into a lot...

7 Minutes of Exploration of Fort Tarsis, your Home and Central HUB....yea, a bit of Destiny 1, some Warframe on Plains and Fortuna, a bit of Diamond City in Fallout 4 and even Monster Hunter World.....
