Forums - Gaming Discussion - Anthem demo impressions

It sucks on the same point with Tom Clancy's division to me, damage calculation lag because of something I dont know what it is on PS4, poor internet maybe? But it's simply annoying when things like damage have to process through internet to show off those so called "cloud" stuff.

I had soem glitches and connection errors but wheni got playing I enjoyed it.
I'll probably get it after reviews come out.



I personally have not seen or heard anything about the game besides it's name being mentioned last week by a co-worker, until just now, on the front page, there's an article about bug fixes?...



all this reads like to me is a post bashing destiny... from someone who hasn't played destiny for an extended period of time

Are some of you who played the Anthem demo also familiar with Warframe? I'm currently playing Warframe and heard a lot comparisons between it and destiny and now I wonder how Anthem is compared to Warframe especially when it comes to mission desing and combat.

There are parallels but I wouldn't draw to heavily on them, it's more Destiny with third person and flight with aesthetics of Warframe. Well, actually, the customisation is is very warframe that's for sure but I'd reckon people are drawing the comparisons more from aesthetics than much else. Think Destiny witha a Warframe coat of paint and full on superhero flight with a stamina bar. 

Thanks for the reply. I've watched some gameplay footage, the mixture between airborne and ground combat looks cool but the enemies seems to be bullet sponges.

This weekends demo made me feel a bit better about the game, but still not as excited for it as I was before the demo. Probably good to get a reality check on my expectations anyway. Anybody try the titan storm event going on right now?

No, the 'stronghold' put me off completely. What was it?



Hmm, pie.

Are you kidding? The whole gaming Internet talks about Anthem, RE2-remake and Metro: Exodus now. It seems they've lost their creativity - every website has the same.

But well, I am happy I'm not the only one who is not interested so much.

I didn’t have a chance to try it because I was at a Super Bowl party.  But it sounded pretty cool.  A storm of creation ripped through the game world and was spawning tyrants.

The Division got a lot of improvements, but yeah...it’s a similar situation, downgrade and everything.

I tried Anthem again yesterday, only to come out even less impressed. Fort Tarsis is such a sterile and lifeless hub..it’s even worse than DAI and MEA. People don’t move around...just stand their in their loop, pretending to talk...not even moving their lips. 

I’ve found Matthias’ character model, a main character, reused with different clothing and facial hair styles all over Tarsis.

It all just seems so last gen to me, when it should feel next gen.

Trying a few co-op missions with strangers was very disappointing too. Everybody just rushed through, so I was just trying to keep up. No visible cooperation.

It makes me sad...unless Drew Karpyshyn wrote an amazingly epic story, I can’t see myself buying this at all. The writing and dialog choices seem so meaningless as it is.

I don’t know why, but even though I hated Inquisition and didn’t even look at Andromeda because of that, I somehow had hope Bioware would find to old strength again, with Casey Hudson and Karpyshyn on board. For now I’m better burrying my hopes.
