Anthem - EA’s next PR disaster after BF 5

Baldur's Gait

Huh, you're a queer fellow!

The CM refused to reply. Also according to Twitter, the program's TOS demands that all criticism be "honest" and "constructive" which suggests gggmanlives's negative criticism played a hand:
What kills me about this is that gggmanlives says at the end that there is something beneath the game's issues and that if EA managed to iron them out then it would be something decent. Even better, he brings up Rainbow Six: Siege as an example, saying he hated it at first but UbiSoft eventually turned it into something great.

Saying there's nothing constructive about the review is just being dishonest.

Apologies for the double post, but gggmanlives reuploaded his review. He states in the intro that he's re-edited it because it was deemed too negative, but re-editing also made him go over what other people were saying and compare it with his own thoughts.

He still doesn't like the game though.

I own Baldur's Gate 2, but I could never get into really playing it, since I'm not a big fan of DnD rules. I know these games mean a lot to many people, therefore I feel for those that enjoyed these classics.
Honestly despite the constant Bioware nostalgia wanking, if you didn't grow up with the games it'll probably be hard to get into now and i say this as someone who still owns the original BG CD's and manuals. Most of Bioware's games have extremely dated systems compared to modern gaming, which makes sense since BG is 2 decades old at this point. Bioware has been creatively bankrupt for almost a decade now and people need to let it go.

and valygar, with the ancestor who built the planar sphere
and bodhi at irenicus' side
and sarevok joining you again

fuck it, i'm gonna start another playthrough of bg2 tomorrow.
it's just so good. modern games can't compete
Khalid and Jarheria, Minsc and Dynaheir, Quayle and Aerie (+ Your kid if you romance her), Sarevok kills your foster father to you and your sister, even Xzar and Montoran. There are so many family themes i never even thought about as a kid.

I quit my most recent play through of BG during siege of dragonspear release. It bugged my game during a quest in which the main character dies (game over) if it's not completed in a certain timeframe. The person who curses your character kept respawning and cursing the character with each new fog of war.

All so i could learn about a poor opressed tranny in a world with sex-change magic. Fuck you Beamdog.

Who said Anthem would take 3 months to go on sale?

How about 1 day?

I saw this image and wanted to post it, but I think it might be shopped. The "39.-" looks kind of off, there's strange artifacts around it and when you open the shop's internet presence, it says the game is 69 Euro... if this turns out to be true, though... holy fuck.

Hmmm, I would hope i haven't been bamboozled, but it's possible. I would think the bargain bin placement lends credence to the picture, but those bins opposite are extremely shallow so it wouldn't be hard to fake... I'll edit my post to reflect this.

Origin of the image seems to be this post:

There's (for lack of a better word) reputable gaming news sites in Germany that mention this too.
So, it seems like this isn't a fake after all.

Someone is really happy that gggmanlives's video is removed (Archive)

Archiving his twitter account revealed that his account was archived months ago, and searching his account in archive.fo revealed that he has a really hard rageboner against Totalbiscuit
hey guys! The xbox version of this game runs so smoothly. unlike you shitty PC, my powerful xbox one x master 360 plus special edition S featuring dante from devil may cry runs this game at 144 frames per second in 8k!

I actually watched the original Gggmanlives review and he was critical, but I wouldn't call it overtly negative. At least compared to reviews done by the other dozen reviewers I've listened to (they make for excellent background noise while working), Ggg's video was pretty tame.Hell, even goddamn Dreamcast Guy sounded more vitriolic and that guy typically is about as threatening as a Care Bear wielding a nerf bat.

All the same, I'm not surprised EA would try and pull his review. The EA "Game Changers" program from day one sounded like nothing but a giant EA & Bioware fantard circlejerk.

Also Baldur's Gate is mostly about the same writing quality as their current stuff. It's just that was really good in the late 90's-early 2000's instead of crappy and clichéd like it is in CURRENT YEAR.

I remember all of the characters from Baldur's Gate to this day. There isn't a single character in Anthem that you remember the name of
