I'd prefer reading about how it all went wrong, the pressure bioware were under to create a game they never wanted and the fallout from it all. Would pay RRP for that
All Anthem Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2020
I was looking through EA access earlier at all the unfinished rubbish EA has put out (incl their major franchises and sports titles) could only think of one game where they had done a good job. The original dead space! And that was when it was fresh and they obviously had no desire to rush it to shelves. I can’t remember being amazed by 2 and 3 which is when they realised it was a good cash generator and to spin them out quicker.
I got this game on PC for about £8 and I must say I have enjoyed every bit of it. Lovely game. Have got three javelins all legendary. Heat for this awesome price
At this price it might be worth just picking up and sitting on in the hope they do a No Man's Sky...
its actually quite a fun play, better if you have a few of you, and seems like (in the future) they are going to do a huge overhaul of the game
If it’s not a free update for owners EA are going to burn lol
No, I didn't see that actually. Though I won't be holding high hopes. Wonder if they will do anything for people who bought it at original launch
If you didn’t see, they are redoing the whole game and relaunching it.
I doubt it now, the games over a year old and they've done little work to it. No man's sky was a great example of what to do when you have a bad launch
Hopefully they can no man sky it and turn it around.
They still saying it will be this year even with the Coronavirus about, factories can still run to make them so I do believe it will be this year. I wait a year till I be usually so I really hope its not delayed
I can kinda see the PS5 being delayed until next year tbh, not unless they made them all before the virus anyway.
Ps5 will be 2 years old by then
They keep saying they'll do something about it, nothing ever happens. All they want is profit and if they can't get any they won't bother. The ps5 will likely be out by 2022 aswell.
I played 8 hours of the Origin Access “free” trial and really enjoyed it. I tried to get back in to it once it was fully on Access and just couldn’t. Essentially it is an amazing tech demo. The off-game story, characters and locations were so dull, the gameplay and game world was great but very limited. If they can get a handle on the gameplay and actually make a coherent game id probably get it. They ripped people off who payed full price in my opinion (although don’t PRE-order a game !!) but it could have been so different. Worth £3-4 for the initial thrill and the first few hours of gameplay.
I had to change my DNS on PS4 to even play this, after the "tutorial" once the cutscene ended it would kick me off their server and not let me back on, 3 different saves
If you wanted to spend another £46.01 at John Lewis it is cheaper. Heat given as it's £4.95 delivered and it's not your fault it's not good game but we are not here to rate games, we are here to see deals.
They announced in February but that’s it, I bough last month on amazon for that reason. The game looks nice and had potential to be a destiny competitor. But it is definitely broken, I only played half hour.
So not really cheaper then ;)
When’s it getting it’s big update? Anyone know?
Biggest gaming flop of all time.
I bought 10 copies of this from Amazon UK for 40 pounds delivered back in January then resold them to CeX Ireland for 80 euro cash same day (lol)
My bad guys!! Saw it at John Lewis thought to share!!
£4.95 at TheGameCollection with free delivery.
No a chance in the world it'll be free for anyone
Anthem 2.0 was announced last year. Apparently its supposed to be a major reworking of the game. There's currently a lot of speculation as to whether it will be free for existing owners. If not, a lot of folk who paid upwards of £50, at launch, are going to be seriously peeved.
Definitely. I paid £11 and got my money's worth, so your laughing at this price! I really enjoyed this, sure there's not much to do after the campaign, but you can say that for a lot of multiplayer games. Plus the flying and combat is fluid and super fun (y)
Did they actually add anything new. I played it about 6 months ago, the story was really short and not much to do after that. Guess they haven't really fixed that
Yes, it's pretty good now. For 4£ I can say it's one of the best deals ever.
I bought it for less than 6£ from Currys a week or two ago just for the 6 months free Spotify, so this is not a deal at all (y)
It's actually £3.49 on JL website but they have added postage onto the price of my post... so now I look stupid (y) I have even voted it cold now. lol
Still dropping? It's been £5 in most places ages
I ordered tekken 7 for £4.99 (for Spotify) Thanks!
They expect your payment, eh? Except, YOU control your money, not them! Drako's right, stop pre-ordering and, 1. You see what kind of game they've put out when reviews and comments roll-in, and 2. They don't get your money. Win-win.
I understand your point. The bitterness stems from the fact that these Publishers/Developers are knowingly passing off inferior, incomplete products, yet they expect my payment to be paid in full, and as a pre-order none the less. You wouldn't except this behavior from any other quarter, so why do so from these scammers?, because that's what they are.
Then people should stop pre ordering games. I have no stake in this really, because I'm not stupid enough to buy things before reviews. All I'm trying to say is, if we get some thing good in the end, then that's not a bad thing for anyone. Being bitter about it, and doubling down in hoping the game remains terrible benefits no one. I'm not defending EA, but they didn't have to do this. The backlash initially is what spawned this change, and thats positive, but why would you remain angry if they (admittedly hypothetically) deliver in the end? "EA are the worse, their game is awful". *Acknowledges it and try's to fix it "EA are still the worse, why isn't this game dead, they shouldn't even bother" I just can't understand that level of bitterness.
commended?, stop making excuses for fraud, laziness and greed. Publishers and developers know their target audience and what their expectations are, yet they lie and cheat at every opportunity until found out. They had no problem with Pre-Orders, or taking gamer's money. That's why only Day 1 content matters. No they should not be commended, what lilly livered nonsense.
Why isn't this bundled with boxes of cereal yet?
It's a conspiracy I tell ya! (confused) :D
I'm so on the fence with this in 1 hand I'm thinking £4 what's the worst that could happen even if I get a few hours play out of it it's worth the money but also with all the negative things heard is it worth it especially while still playing other games and re3 remake around the corner.
Me too dude
What happened to this game (lol) I remember when it was announced in e3 a couple years back.. Guessing it didn't do very well then!
Heat. I don’t need the game, but I’m reluctant when the others in the house start fighting over amazon music streaming. I’m too tight to buy a family subscription so this works perfectly. When they’re arguing and fighting and can switch to this and they can carry on. Happy days. Code received day after delivery. Says not valid as still had a registered Spotify app on my phone. Deleted that and changed email address and works like a charm with the Sonos around the house
Can you not just collect this with code in store?
Had same thing when I bought my laptop. But I've called costumes service and after they verified my purchase over the phone they send my code straight away (y)
Yes, but it's easy to get around that. Use the site "Spot my Backup" to backup all of your playlists on your current account. Create a new fresh email address and use that to sign up. Once you've activated your 6 month code, go back to the "Spot my Backup" site and log in with your new details and it'll restore all of your playlists. What i've always done at that point is go through each one and re-follow them on Spotify "officially" so you can get any updates or additional tracks that might be added. The one downside, if you want to call it a downside, to using the backup site is that it restores all of your playlists as if you've created them yourself. It's a minor inconvenience for 6 months of premium though - I did it on my last code and i've got another code to do around August time for a full year of free premium.
Is the code for new Spotify accounts only?
Plenty of people out there that like to bash a game even though chances are they haven't properly played it. For the price and content involved everyone is getting their monies worth and won't complain with the fun and value it offers. Ignore the haters and buy it :)
Nope, I have the platinum in it and still jump on it from time to time.
Plenty of idiots in the world unfortunately....... https://www.google.com/amp/s/arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/04/inside-look-at-bioware-explains-exactly-how-fake-e3-2017s-anthem-demo-was/?amp=1 "The demo was not actually built properly—a lot of it was fake, like most E3 demos," one source told Kotaku. "There was a lot of stuff that was like, 'Oh, are we actually doing this? Do we have the tech for that, do we have the tools for that? To what end can you fly? How big should the world be?'"
Completed the game and really enjoyed it - steal at the price and well worth picking up :) <3
Worth noting that the developers made a blog post yesterday basically saying they are working on overhauling the game - which means that the game as it currently is won't be getting any new updates (except new store items...) for the foreseeable future. Some people estimate "Anthem 2.0" won't be out this year. I started playing recently and it's probably worth a fiver, just to fly around like Iron Man.
Can I specifically request one where the code is missing??
See it is better a pepper member does it (lol)
A Pepper member would tell you it's £138.60 :)
I am not adding to the sea of eBay code posts I will leave that to the pepper members but there is opened not used Capcom Arcade Cabinet for £150 at Curry's Clearance with the code. Bargain (y) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CAPCOM-Home-Arcade-BOX-DAMAGE/352941082828?hash=item522ced88cc:g:XyUAAOSw63teJduN
It's probably a good job the code is missing (poo)
Remember seeing these guys when they came to Leeds a few years back. I believe it was "I coul da been a contender" which first got me listening but generally sink or swim remains my favourite album of theirs.
Good deal. Brian Fallon has a new solo album out this year as well.
Good price. Love the band...as you might imagine but this album was quite disappointing when it came out after their first 2 albums were considered modern classics.
Love this album
'On a world left unfinished by the gods', shouldn't that read 'In a game left unfinished by EA' (y)
Paid 3.50 from Amazon the other day and seems to be below 5 regularly
Anybody got this and managed to play it? I'm constantly being disconnected from EA servers.
Dunno if curries still have there's for 3.99 and the 6 months spotify?
Me too...the bar stewards!
No, just an edition that gives you legion of dawn armour, weapon, attachments etc. Like a deluxe edition of a different game
Wife got me onto these and yep first listening Led Zep, but that can't be bad.
Great way to not be compared to Led Zepplin: stop sounding so much like Led Zepplin! I mean, Safari Song? Come on now... :D
When the curtain falls (y) 🏾
Greta Van Fleet. She wouldn't approve. How dare you?
Good band, great sound. If they didn't constantly get compared to Led Zeppelin (as if that's a bad thing) then they would be a household name. From The Fires (Vinyl) is the same price, featuring Black Smoke Rising which is brilliant IMHO.
Yep, even Fallout 76 is still in the top 500 for player numbers !
(lol) (y) probably the biggest crash and burn of the last decade
If you own the game and just want the DLC you can get it from cdkeys for £1.49.
Is 16+ the age limit or the average number of people still playing this?
How? Game programmers who develop for a console know *exactly* what hardware is in the console, there are three version of the Xbox One, the Original Xbox One, the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X. The Xbox One S Digital is pretty much the S without the drive. A console player can't add more memory, add other software that may affect the device, change the CPU/Graphics card or the alter the chip speeds. The only thing that is out of the developers hands is internet cnnection speed. If a game plays badly on any console (Xbox or Playstation) then its something that the developers *would* have picked up in testing. If they programmed a game thats too demanding for the console its playing on they would known that at testing and need to resolve it before shipping. On a PC its a very different story, the developers have no idea what hardware they PC will have but the console is pretty much a fixed box in terms of hardware spec.
Erm it's completely false to say the hardware isn't important.
The Xbox one X came out around November 2017, its not five years old, its only only just over 2 1/4 years old. Its also not the case that the Xbox ONne can only do 4k OR 60FPS, Games can run at 4k and 60 FPS, Gears 5 and Halo Master cheif collection both do. Not all may do so, some are 4k or 60FPS and you choose your mode, it depends on the studio that made them how much time and work they wanted to put in on the Xbox Enhanced versions. However the hardware is not important, Game programmers for console know exactly what hardware it will run on, if it does run well its entirely down to the programmers, its not like they had to adapt the game for different hardware, or graphics card drivers.
Sorry, I meant specifically about Anthem. Anthem is only 30fps on Xbox One X. Xbox One X was released 5 years back, so has graphics card that is quite old. Its still very capable but can only do so much. 4K 60fps needs a very expensive graphics card and that too is only possible in some few games. Hence, on demanding titles, Xbox One X can only do 30fps at 4K.
Xbox one X cqn do 60 FPS. If you think about it there no reason a console version should run slowly, the hardware is precisely known unlike the PC where people can have a massive range of hardware in use.
the amount of times this has been posted...
back available :)
i received no spotify code when i ordered this from Currys last month
Showing 7.49 for me
