    Anthem - February 22nd

    Yeah, I’ve played nothing but Anthem for the last week and moaned about it on here. Today I’m going to play Anthem and tomorrow will be the same. It’s starting to remind me of the original Destiny. For all its obvious faults I just can’t get enough of its core gameplay loop and the world they’ve created is absolutely stunning visually.

    The endgame revolving around three strongholds is crazy. That would be like Destiny launching with three strikes.

    Despite my moaning I haven’t touched any other game since the early release of Anthem. It certainly has something, that’s for sure.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Anthem’s actual gameplay is fine. The shooting and flying is decent. The game world is quite captivating. Beyond that it has significant flaws. The lack of content and the lack of diverse content is of major concern. Perhaps it’s being held back but there’s just nowhere enough in the game currently. The beauty of Destiny was the unforgettable design and traits of the weapons. Anthem is a bit like The Division and it’s full of generic guns that have no character. The hub areas are in one case muddled with a seriously low frame rate and the other is an afterthought that was clearly stuck in last minute. The loading times are really bad and they are numerous. I’d love another looter shooter right now but I just can’t convince myself to buy this. I’ll accept something that is clearly undercooked but this game has a startling lack of variation. At least with Destiny I embraced the grind from the start trying to get a Gjallahorn or whatever but I’m not really into grinding for a generic machine gun.

    They’re awful. Like something from a low budget sci fi tv show. Admittedly I now just skip it all but nonetheless from minute 1 I thought they were rubbish and couldn’t wait for them to shut up.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    The PC Gamer review in progress is really spot on actually. 1. The ‘story’ sucks 2. Fort Tarsis is a crap idea (+ the frame rate on console in this area must be about 15 fps) 3. The actual gameplay (combat & flying) is certainly good 4. But, the repetition becomes aparent after only a few hours 5. He’s saying the loading times on PC are bad, I would agree it’s the same on console I’m on the infamous Tombs quest currently. 15 chests required but it only counts if you open it before the rest of your squad. What a terribly thought out requirement and I’m not sure I want to continue. A grind is a grind but that’s just a dumb idea to say the least.

    The story and cutscenes in this are woeful. The importance of the actual story is debatable to be fair but it’s a load of crap anyway. Every character is a generic stereotype. At least, for better or worse, Destiny had a bit of charm. The Division also mostly lets you get on with things. Anthem has numerous tedious cutscenes of talking heads spouting nonsense. They’re mostly skippable if you’re not grouped but I have pressed B too relentlessly for the game and it crashed.

    My PC has a 1050ti, i5 and 8gb ram and it certainly was more playable during the alpha than the full Xbox One X version. The console version is not unplayable, it’s just a bit weird that it still has the same sub standard frame rate as the beta. I find it a bit off putting.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    I played the closed beta on my fairly budget PC and got a fluctuating 40 to 60 fps frame rate. That was absolutely fine and it’s fair to say it wasn’t exactly spectacular looking. On both the beta and full game on the Xbox One X I’d suggest it’s miles away from 30 fps in the hub area and it’s certainly sub 30 fps at times in the open world. Not good. Having played the alpha, beta and full game now I’m not entirely sure if I’ll continue beyond the 10 hours of EA access. I haven’t saw anything to get it’s hooks into me. Reminds me of The Division actually. It certainly had a far more limited lifespan in comparison to my crushing addiction to Destiny. This feels similar. On the alpha it felt new and exciting but I’ve yet to come across anything really different in regard to that opening gameplay loop.

    Yeah, the frame rate in the hub on the Xbox One X is still really low. It’s like ploughing through treacle.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Seems pretty good and very faithful to the original game. The neon everywhere lends itself well to 4K and HDR on the Xbox One X. It’s hard to know what to do to improve the Crackdown formula. Evidently the devs just paid homage to Crackdown 1. That’s cool, I just want to climb about and collect green orbs. I suppose this all just confirms what a legendary game the original was.

    Bellator has signed a deal to be shown on Sky.

    The Division 2

    This feels remarkably like the first game. Obviously anyone that loved the original is going to enjoy this.

    Covington thinks he’s a popular fighter but he’s not really much of a draw. If he never fought again there wouldn’t be many clamouring for his return. There is no disputing his ability but he’s not going to sell any ppv’s. Ultimately Ben Askren has also stole his thunder. Elite wrestler that likes to wind people up, although Ben comes across as really intelligent whereas Colby is just a load of nonsensical sound bites.

    Apex Legends - Battle Royale by Respawn Entertainment

    There are some nice ideas in this. The ping system is a bit of a game changer. There are clearly similarities to Blackout but it feels like an evolution of that formula. I can’t say I’ll play it for more than a few nights but I’ll give it a go anyway. I like the PUBG multiple map format rather than Blackout and Fortnites changing of a solitary map. The fact Respawn have clearly given the map in this a name suggests they’ll follow PUBG’s lead.
