I rarely ever want games to fail but I definitely want this one too. Retribution for not doing Andromeda's Quarian DLC. Just go back to Mass Effect Bioware. I don't even care if it's not an Andromeda sequel (which I REALLY want). Just. Go. Back.

I had a feeling this would happen. All the previews i watched didn't paint a pretty picture.

At some point we've got to look past EA. Bioware has been with them for a long time now, couldnt it just be that Bioware has lost it's touch?

Will EA let them take another fail though? that's the big question...

No, it's always EA's fault. Kinda like how everything Blizzard does is Activision's fault.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Bioware has consistently failed at making products that people like. Dragon Age II, Mass Effect 3, Star Wars The Old Republic, Mass Effect Andromeda, and now Anthem. That's basically 8 years of being disliked. Of course, at first critics kind of just gave Bioware the biscuit. But now it seems like there's basically nobody on their side. The one game that was really well received from the past 8 years has basically been forgotten (despite getting so many awards, it doesn't seem like a memorable game).

Honestly, I wouldn't blame EA if they closed this studio. I mean, the best talent there would probably go on to do better things anyways. This is not really a case of being unjust in closure.



Given how popular Apex Legends has turned out for EA out of nowhere then I predict Anthem getting dropped super fast and EA turning more attention to grabbing onto the flash in the pan success of Apex rather than trying to pump more money into the very clearly unwanted by general audiences Anthem, I mean.... over the last few years I think most people read news about it and get anti hyped.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Well.. Bye bye Bioware, nice knowing you.

I couldn't give a flying fuck about the  Bioware of today  .but I would blame EA if they closed Bioware because they along with Bioware have to be held accountable for the situation , MEA a game I enjoyed btw and deserved to continue got thrown under a bus for this and yes Bioware say it was their choice, but you can't tell me they weren't encouraged ,until we are shown that all those ips are in safe capable  hands then I would stick with Bioware but they need direction and no longer get a free pass.

I'm with you brother.



Is it just me or have reviewers gotten extra strick all of a sudden.

Anthem on a 70/100? Okay, maybe that's fair, but this game would have gotten 8s and 9s if released 2 to 3 years ago.

How did games like Sea of Thieves which launched with bare bones content received better reviews than a full content, polished game in Crackdown 3 which offers both Solo and MP modes? I am very confused.

I am extremely worried for Bioware's existence.

Its due to Crackdown 3 feeling like a game from 2007, where it basically ignored all of the innovation and progression from the last decade with an incredibly repetitive missions with a tack on multiplayer that's only interesting feature is the destruction and having mechanics like the lock on basically ruin any form of balance.
