    Anthem - February 22nd

    The box is amazing. "Winner of 90+ awards: INCLUDING BEST ACTION GAME".

    Never thought I'd see the day where Chris Gayle was, relatively, representing the Geoff Boycott scoring school.

    You play the story once, then you're replaying missions at different difficulty levels. I doubt it's going to be much of a problem.

    :-D That's a little ridiculous.

    Hmm. Amazon have just issued me a £10 cut in the price, though that's *not* what's shown on the order page. Weird.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Two points: - The reviewers didn't pay $60 for it. - Presumably the vast majority of people playing it didn't pay $60 for it - given that GamesPass and the availability of Crackdown 3 on it is flagged everywhere on the dashboard. Some people will have done, but "it has a different pricing model and some of those pricing models make the game look expensive" is a facile argument. Lots of games are expensive at $60. Some much less accomplished.

    Bit expensive for access to 150 games.

    Presumably they tried it, and the player was just confused about the number of options that were open to them. It's a tricky one.

    It makes sense in context, it’s just that the choice of context is unfortunate. the game is lovely once you get into the city, but I wonder if (theme aside) the reaction would be better if you’d been dropped in a brightly coloured world with blue skies (which, unsurprisingly, is far beyond Crackdown 1 or 2), rather than a blue lit grey cell then a post apocalyptic shanty town for your first fifteen minutes (which HDR aside, is less so).

    The first moment you get control: is grey, grey, grey. im sure the argument is that you’re rewarded by the city once you get through the gate, but while dark and grey shows off Theresa’s food bank well, I’m less sure it’s the “best” intro.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Its worth pointing out that, at various points (and not just for the initial release) there have been missions/activities in Destiny/the division/Diablo which have been unnecessarily grindy and requiring specific fluky drop rates. Or tedious running around harvesting materials which only turn up every now and again. the question isn’t whether anthem has them. It’s how they react to them when they start getting metrics from much larger player bases than their internal test teams.

    HDR on Windows is just a shit show, and apparently continues to be.

    Think that’s an offer elsewhere too.

    Ah, if you’re playing coop certain settings are set to the capability of the objectively worst machine.
