@Xylymphydyte: I see. I wasn't particularly needing to go on a 'defense trip', I was simply querying inaccurate information.

Sure, Andromeda had its issues. Mass Effect 3 was awesome, though with a controversial ending, and Inquisition was consensus GOTY (in a weaker year for games) so 3 stinkers? No.

But it's fun to mock when that's not actually accurate... ok. :-/

@Xylymphydyte: We'll have to see, won't we. We do know that cosmetics-only MTX's will be purchasable (or grindable). If needing a pink Ranger skin is going to corrupt your game's integrity, well that's down to you. I'm not sure where you get 'poor recent track record' from. Microtransactions have been restricted to the multiplayers of Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age Inquisition and Mass Effect Andromeda. None were essential purchases and most players just played the game and got chests through in-game currency.

22 years is a good run. Inb4 some foolish 'this proves BioWare is dead' comments. Oops, too late... ;-)

@nibbin1191: Anthem looks like a lot of fun. I have high anticipation for it. Perhaps this new Star Wars game will learn from it. Also, I'm pretty sure Motive includes many of the Montreal team from Mass Effect Andromeda, so they can bring what they learned to the game as well.

For 'fact completionists', 200+ facts were collated here from Mark Darrah's tweets: http://bsn.boards.net/thread/15097/anthem?page=1

@kmd: Physical CDs, VHS video, Blockbuster. Once the rot sets in, the fall is fast because the profit has gone and those in the market become desperate to sell their clunker while they can. Possibly what is happening here.

Preferred 3 as it's a more iconic vault story.
