    Anthem - February 22nd

    Initial impressions online do seem positive. Pre order held for now.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    What a mess of a launch. Seems stupid for a PVE, story-driven game to release a week early on one platform, for 10 hours of play a week early on another, and not at all until a week later on PS4 I suppose us PS4 players get to find out if its worth keeping our pre-orders at least!

    The Division 2

    Is that meant to imply Ubisoft do this sort of thing all the time then? Ive only ever played one Far Cry game and none of the Assasins Creed series.

    The Division 2

    I guess the fact that it feels very much like more of the same is fine, but I was hoping for more tangible changes vs. the first one. I'm not sure about this. The enemy encounters, collectables, menus, base of operations etc, etc are all too familiar right from the start. I've not done much research on the sequel so maybe I'm not aware of some bigger changes to come in the full game? Initial impressions haven't made me want to go and pre-order. Between this and Anthem it's not been a brilliant few weeks for demos/betas.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Yeah that’s one of the grindy bits I was talking about. Totally made up number to string things out. Quickest way I found was to run through the one on Titan on the rig (near where the witches ritual also spawns).

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    I actually quite liked the quest - decent mix of activities and a fun final act. I know people will moan about the PvP part but it’s a gun that has always shone in that game mode so it stands to reason they might make you jump in the crucible and work a bit to acquire it. I thought the more grindy ‘do X amount of this thing’ were the worst bits. Hopefully will get a chance to use it in crucible this evening. Last night was made doubly rewarding when I finally got one eyed mask to drop at the end of a match (albeit with terrible perks).

    Anthem - February 22nd

    The infinite load bug is the main issue for me. The only way I can get in is to load the mission, let it get to the 95% mark where it pauses, then close the game, start it up again and join expedition in progress. Doing that I managed to play through all three of the levels and the little strike thing last night. Unlocked the Storm as as well. Obviously the demo not working properly is a shambles. Focussing on the game itself though, it runs like shit in Fort Tarsis (PS4 Pro) but looks ok out in the world. Graphics aren’t blowing me away though. Shooting feels alright, although lacking a sense of satisfaction on bigger hitters like the sniper rifles. It could really do with a tutorial - I know combos are meant to be key but the game does literally nothing to try and explain this to you. I know it will be in the full game but some menu pop ups wouldn’t have been a bad idea for the demo. Loot feels terrible at the moment. Tiny icons on the floor or a presentation in the end of mission screen, even after beating a big boss. It needs to create sense of occasion/excitement to convince people to keep chasing those drops. I also get a bit of a Division feel where it’s about chasing numbers rather than particularly amazing weapons/armour that you have heard the names of, a la Destiny. I don’t know about this one. It just feels ok so far. I might try to level up the Storm tonight to see if extra abilities make things click. Having to workaround the loading issue is a massive pain in the arse though.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Exciting code update. After receiving a message from Shopto saying they were awaiting codes to arrive today, mine magically appeared in my account and I'm now good to go. Hopefully the same should be happening for others.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    It’s not there. Believe it or not I did check before posting on here! Ill keep the thread updated with the enthralling progress as I’ve now asked Shopto.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Still waiting to see my code on Shopto. Which is a bit odd.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Option to do that still not showing for me. Maybe I just need to wait a bit longer.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Put in a pre-order on Shopto but can’t see the vip code anywhere yet. I’m assuming it will be obvious once it’s there? Sorry for the boring pre-order question!

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Just...odd. Like they needed the player-base to tell them what the power level should be. This has to be one of the fastest adjustments they have ever made. Did they not have a longer term plan for the roll out of the forges? The roadmap made it seem like that. This feels like a big problem already. New approach to content is ammended within a day. Maybe the power level change sorts it and that’s the last we say about it (new forge on Friday) but you have to question why the fuck they made it such a high level in the first instance if they didn’t have a longer term strategy that built from that specific point.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    I wanted it until I realised it was a reskinned Origin Story. I’m not sure I can be arsed now!

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    I get that sleeper is annoying. I do think there will always be a gun that rises to the top in any mode though. Let's see how it pans out over the course of this week. Maybe I got lucky last night. I don't think banning it from the mode makes sense and would argue that players are getting better at countering it now (that charge time can be rough).
