Gamespot review scores below market level yet again. It's badass to be pessimistic I guess.

Blair seems a nice guy, best of luck to him. I used to watch the 'Dragons & donuts' streams he used to do for Dragon Age Inquisition's multiplayer.

'Something else' likely to be Dragon Age 4.

That there would be a 'beta' had already been confirmed by Jonathan Warner back in September: https://twitter.com/Bio_Warner/status/912864383717408768 This game has been slated for Financial Year 18/19 (ending in March) for some time, so a March launch was highly expected after it had been pushed back from a Fall release. Mark Darrah shared his Anthem involvement back in January, so not exactly 'recent' news but there it is. https://twitter.com/BioMarkDarrah/status/956189419748450304 The key to this story remains 'how' Anthem will combine compelling story and looting/shooting that will satisfy both the 'solo only single player' crowd, the Destiny-players and everyone in-between. Hopefully EA Play in a month's time will shed a great deal of light on that. :-)

@se7enxx89xx: And 'No Mans Sky' was a 7 on Gamespot. Where's the nuance?

No, Far Cry 2 is not better than Far Cry 5. Thanks for asking.

MEA was a decent game hampered by comparison with a stronger preceding trilogy and a buggy launch. If only around 16% buy the DLC (https://www.gamespot.com/articles/dlc-and-microtransactions-new-study-shows-how-game/1100-6444522/) and fewer people bought the game because of its rough launch, the costs of making the DLC vs likely sales may simply not have added up.

Actions matter more than words, but reading the words is a positive sign that needs to be followed up with deeds. If Anthem has great stories, great characters and great gameplay at its core, I'm in.

I prefer playing games on my Xbox, I enjoy the feel of the controller and the platform. Multi-platform titles I play on that. I also picked up a PS4 on Black Friday specifically for the Sony exclusives. I don't like having to have two machines, but if you don't get sucked into every Pro and X update it's a viable strategy. No, Microsoft don't have a meaningful selection of games as 'exclusive system sellers'.

That's a success then (84 average at the moment on OpenCritic), nice.
