So this game comes out next month.
The problem is that EA does everything in their might to fuck this up so might as well post this.

As you can see the game will have 5 (FIVE) different versions at launch (suck it, Pokémon).

Problem is that people who bought the most expensive version won’t have access to 2 trial periods while the PC version gets one more trial period than console gamers before launch.

To top it off it looks like 2 of the versions won’t get access to the full game lmao

So EA is shitting in the womb before the baby can breath fresh air

Here are some responses

Seems like EA learned a lot from Battlefield 5

BioWare Austin doesn't know how to do anything right

Big ups to their art team for making that yellow and black "javelin" warframe look just like HK-47, because they're creatively bankrupt.

Well if you have EA executives pointing a gun to your head 24/7 to make this game a commercial success then creativity is the last thing that’ll come out of you

Something with this. It's not five different versions. Only 2 (Standard and Legion of Dawn).

The other 3 things are related to EA's "EA Access" & "Origin Access" subscription services.

EA Access and Origin Access Basic both get 10 hours of Early Access one week before the game launches to the public on February 22

Origin Access Premier members get access to the entire game on the 15th.

Standard and Legion of Dawn preorders get it the same day, there are just extra skins and stuff for Legion of Dawn preorders.

Cr1tikal did a three part series of him and some friends trying to play it and it was a mighty clusterfuck. People spent hours just trying to get into the game; the loading screens would lock, the Origin server would crash and even pressing the menu button in game made the whole thing crash.

Then you finally see the game and it looks like Mass Effect Andromeda and Warframe had a bastard child.

So EA expects that their 50 IQ audience will make the right choice?

It's convoluted bullshit, you shouldn't have had to make 4 different sentences to explain the multiple versions, just like BioWare shouldn't have had to make a 20-cell spreadsheet explaining content & date partitions. It should have been "$20 more and you get a week headstart to fuck teh plebs over with!" and that's not what people got.

Damn, I thought we were gonna discuss the Ayn Rand novella. At only like 70 pages it's one of her shortest (and as a result straight to the point and light on sperging) work.

Not a Randroid by any means but it's her one work I recommend as general social science fiction.

I saw 10 minutes of demo gameplay and I feel I've already seen the entire game in Destiny/The Division/Warframe. You jet around until you find some generic mooks and then hold M1 in their direction until the red bar above them shrinks away and they flop over. Occasionally some piddly grenades are thrown and some characters I don't know babble about their quest objectives. It doesn't seem to do anything differently except provide a less instanced world than its peers. The core gameplay clearly hasn't been meaningfully improved over them.

Besides the gameplay, it bothers me how many people have no issue with EA selling an alpha build for a game just months before launch (like they did with BFV) and then excusing the flaws in the demo sold weeks before release because it's "out of date" as if the point of a demo isn't to sample the full game. Fuck these kikes. If this is an alpha, the game's development has clearly been a fucking mess.

I got into Warframe several months ago and it's crazy amazing. Pretty much everything can be earned in game by blueprints and crafting. This includes skins. You can also trade with other players, so if you're into that you can trade rare cards and mods for the in-game currency. So if you're dead set on not buying anything, you can pick up rares and uniques and sell them to other players. Without spending a dime. I should say though that some cosmetics you must buy with real money through Steam, but they're user made like DotA 2. So it's not all bad as if you have a favorite designer, they get a cut for their Warframe skin they made.

The in game currency can buy you weapons and such, but it is a co-op shooter. So it's not like pay 2 win. It does have a PvP mode but most rarely bother with it as the game is not designed around it.

Anthem looks and plays like a worse version of Warframe with worse lore. Warframe lore is pretty interesting. My advice is that you try Warframe first (you get bonuses if you have Twitch Prime) and see if you like it. Then just watch footage of Anthem. Because Warframe has a fully developed economy you don't have to spend money on and a staggering amount of content for free.

Tl;dr: I will stick with Warframe and a good dev rather than pay Bioware and EA.
