    I don't recall Destiny ever being a bug riddled, console crashing mess on release, to be fair.

    A week into Destiny's life, they were releasing Vault of Glass, not having to panic around looking to patch the most fundamental aspect of their game in order for anyone to have any point even playing it.

    @SolidSCB There was this around when Destiny 2 launched, but other than that...

    The loot system is fucked but I haven't experienced any other bugs or crashes. Maybe the game is pushing the Sony consoles too hard. The Pro has a reputation for running loud, presumably because it's running hot.

    Was bored last night so did a quick Stronghold run. Ran through it fine, killed the boss...and disconnect. The game then refused to reconnect, wouldn't close properly even force closing it in task manager/alt F4 and needed a full system restart....where it promptly did the exact same thing again the next time I loaded into Fort Tarsis.

    6 years apparently.

    I'm struggling to believe that this game is a result of 6 years of work, it feels like more a clusterfuck to put together than Andromeda and it wouldn't surprise if we learn in the coming months that they rebooted development 2 times in those 6 years.

    At least that's the only thing I can think to justify the state this game was launched in.

    What I find more upsetting is that they actually 'reallocated' most of the Andromeda team to focus on Anthem's development.

    So instead of potentially getting a reboot of the ME universe that could have undone some of the damage ME 3 did... we got a very lackluster entry in the series that seems to have hammered the final nail in the ME coffin... and then to add insult to injury they release Anthem on us.

    I'm not holding out much hope for the next Dragon Age at this point.

    Well they have said that they definitely aren't done with mass effect in the last few weeks. So the final nail comment is a bit dramatic.

    A complete lack of imagination was my biggest issue with Andromeda, so I don't feel like a few extra hands on it would have saved that project.

    I also don't think Casey Hudson would have returned to BW if the writing was truly on the wall.

    OT, I'm still having a lot of fun with Anthem tbh. I'm just quietly working my way through stuff solo, though.

    The only shit thing about doing it solo is that when you finish the campaign you will have a long way to go to 30. I think I was level 18 but now I am up to 29 buy it's taken a while.

    I quite like Anthem and have been having fun trying out the different javelins. The colossus is my favourite right now, it has a satisfying feel of heft to it. Playing free play with other low level randoms taking on titans is top fun. Anthem gets all the basics right imo, the other issues can be sorted out. It's a good game that is fun to play.

    I really liked anthem but found once I had finished the campaign I lost all urge to go back to it.

    I think I was level 20 (or 19) after soloing the campaign. Still got some single player stkety stuff unlocked but not really gone back to it since the night I finished it... I will one day but plenty of other games to play too including trying to finish my Game Pass games in the two months cheap trial that I won't be renewing.

    I uninstalled this after having 6hrs remaining on my ea access trial. Got to around level 8 and my god I just felt bored with this big empty world with nothing to do in it, and the missions were a comical must finish quick race to stop the enforced tethering loading screen being triggered. The speaky bits just felt tacked on so they could say, 'look it's still a Bioware game' and it just felt weird pressing RT or LT to go through a convo with no different outcome. There's the bones of something here but not enough to keep people engaged for years in its current state.

    There are different outcomes to the conversations though as far as I know.

    I can understand why the tethering would annoy people in missions though as it would annoy me. It's the reason I played through solo.

    Yep, same. It massively annoyed me in the beta.

    The Marelda side-story is really quite sad.

    New update has boosted the power of some of my gear, which is nice. As is the ability to launch a mission from anywhere in the fort (even if I do still like having a wander around and chatting to people in between missions).

    Anthem is down with an "unknown error". No message about the server going offline, nothing at all. 🤨

    Apex legends too (for me at least) so it's probably EA rather than just Anthem.

    Got back in after restarting Origin to find all my loot from that session gone. Probably my best session, too. Game crapped out before I could get back to the forge.

    @b-rk in theory it should reappear next time you finish a mission or freeplay.

    I am looking forward to getting this cheap. I'm also enjoying watching all the abusive videos about it on YouTube. It just seems total shite but I'm a sucker for si fi.

    The worst I've found recently is the quartering. He just won't stop posting up anti captain marvel videos.

    Just seen on Reddit that apparently unequipping certain items at level 30 will give you a power boost due to how the scaling works. GJ Bioware

    Enjoyed this but fell right of a cliff after completion, in fairness I got up to nearly lvl29 on the way but end game spectacularly thin from the looks of it.
