Anthem Positivity

★★★★★ Apprentice

I know Anthem is still in need of a buff but a recent article by Jennifer Scheurle discusses Anthems combat and reminds us how good it actually is. Here's a snippet:

 

 

"Anthem has received a lot of criticism since its launch, and I agree with many of the issues that others have pointed out. What the game does right overshadows what it does wrong, however, and my enjoyment and love for the game’s polished and unique core continues. If BioWare’s goal was to deliver high fidelity air combat using mech suits, they have definitely delivered on that goal.

But let’s take a minute to define that term, “fidelity,” in this context.

Game designers describe something as high fidelity when we give players a feeling of executing mechanics and systems with the perception of high precision as well as ease. We want players to feel both skilled and clever. Good things happen when we can deliver a sense of competency to the player. And Bioware was able to deliver many high fidelity systems in Anthem."

Yes, the combat is, without a doubt, freaking awesome. So is flying. It's beautiful, too.

 

That's it.

In a nutshell  this is what keeps me playing and hoping Bioware turns things around.

I totally agree Nichivo.

 

I hope tonights dev stream starts to turn things around.

 

Bioware are also hiring a new team member to work specifically on loot so hopefully the future looks bright.

One person handing out the loot for all players will be a freaking nightmare! Even just going around filling up the chests will be a massive time-sink on its own. How is one person going to help?

Lol!

 

I think it's more to do with designing a better loot system but of course you knew that, right?   :D
