So EAware is remaking it after radio silence for nearly a year. http://archive.is/E0gvQ Fun fact this blog post much like their game was down for an hour or more before being fixed.

What is the point of remaking Anthem? it already has such a bad stigma attached to it that even if they somehow fixed all the issues with it people are still not going to come back to it. Just let it fucking die already, there is nothing left to save.

>to do that properly we’ll be doing something we’d like to have done more of the first time around – giving a focused team the time to test and iterate (emphasis mine), focusing on gameplay first

The game was in production for five years.

They didn't have enough time to get it right the first fucking time! Jesus lord almighty how badly can the three Bs fuck up? It boggles the mind.

Place your bets on the "redesign" being shelved entirely and quietly before a sequel is announced ("We couldn't do our vision justice without charging you another $60 for the overhaul!")

I would not mind a decent TPS game with less of a focus on cover and more on jetpack movement and suit abilities. The operative word here is decent and I doubt Bioware could do it well without fucking it up in some way or another. And that's assuming it's a singleplayer game for certain financial reasons.

Maybe if this time Bioware is more concerned about making a quality product rather than being concerned about making the game "unmemeable" because of how buttblasted they become from the ME Andromeda memes, who knows, perhaps they can make something salvageable.

Anthem was supposed to be the big money maker after Andromeda crashed with no survivors. EA has to be fucking with Bioware with this. I would have thought that EA would have pulled the trigger and kill the studio, but maybe they want Bioware to either redeem itself or fuck up so EA can "trim" the losses and post higher sales after Bioware is gone next quarter.

Inquisition actually sold alright, although The Witcher 3 completely overshadowed it when it was released a while later. With the poles making cyberpunk vapourware it makes sense that they put out another big fantasy RPG on the market. It's not like fans of the genre has a ton of options right now when it comes to big budget games.

I'm also pretty sure I heard they were planning to make another Mass Effect game, even after Andromeda shat the bed hard.

Now that kind of makes sense. RPG fans are a pathetic (sadly, I count myself among them). I don't think it's the Bioware branding that EA wants to milk specifically (and which is far less milkworthy than it once was). It's the fact that AAA RPG fans are thirsty. Some will even play shit like Two Worlds and try to make excuses for it.

Well, it sold at cheap prices eventually that they probably did make a profit. But I remember some of the shenanigans they pulled on early sales numbers. They switched their practice on reporting on individual game sales at the time, and started reporting "division" sales under a wider EA banner (like sports had one category, action/adventure another), and could hide DAI's lack of success that way.

Different fanbases/target audiences. Dragon Age also targeted womyn and fags primarily, and they did actually have some success in doing so. It meant their games wouln't have to compete as much with high-T games such as the Witcher series and such while getting sales from an mostly untapped audience. It came out while GoT was still popular, so that might also have been a contributing factor to their sales.

I have to admit though: I loved DAO. They hid their degeneracy better then, and it had a lot of different choices/branches throughout the game. And I still think Loghain is one of the better villains in RPGs. That was the last they were ever good (ME2/DAO).

No they didn't, they just wrote good characters who sometimes happened to be fags. It's indicative of the shift EA made with DA2/ME2; in Origins, for example, Zevran was a raging fuck machine who wanted to bang anything with a pulse. If he came on to your male PC and you said "no way fag" he was still a bro, he just took it at face value and never brought it up again. He was a great character, with a lot of depth, and his sexual tendencies reflected that - he was a world-traveling dude who was raised in a brothel and learned that fucking is pretty cool.

Contrast that with DA2 or ME2 - characters were written out of the gate to be gay or bi or whatever and that was all there was to their character. Do you remember anything about The Bull aside from how gay he was? I don't. But I do remember Zevran's backstory and some of his dialogue.

in ME2 you could only get a male gay romance of any kind if you enabled the human gay romance option in ME1 (the content is all there, just dummied out. Even has unique dialogue) and romanced the Virmire survivor

incredibly, ME2 has flags and content to continue this initially impossible gay romance in ME1

Faggotry was not allowed in the ME series, I think it might have been due to the model they based Shepard on didn't want to have his resemblance associated with faggotry. Whatever the case was they went full pozz with ME3 and suddenly your ship was full of brown homosexuals that had nothing to their character besides their sexuality. Even if you didn't like a character in ME2 they did tend to be memorable, I doubt even people who liked ME3 could describe any of the new characters without saying their name, ethnicity and sexuality.

>>16839096

I'd say Bioware was already heading downhill quickly during the production of ME2. If you play the trilogy as a whole you notice the huge difference in tone and focus of the second game. It wasn't all bad, it went more for characters than worldbuilding, but it worked at times. Story wise you do notice that the second game did basically nothing to the bigger narrative, it didn't set anything up and it also didn't resolve anything.

ME2 going for more character and world driven was not a bad thing as I felt I gave more of a shit about the team since they felt like real people. But Storywise the game felt like filler but despite it's flaws ME2 still was a good game where unlike ME3 the shit you did throughout the game actually had a huge impact on the final game and I think that's a reason why I love ME2 so much, all your autism paid off it a great way.

ironically the gameplay is actually good, and not in a relative "the rest is so shit it makes it look good" way. even the progression is good because whatever you do you work towards more rolls on the loot slot machine and you're not completely victim to RNG. all it really needs is more and diverse (as in more shit to do, not trannyshit) content. as big as the map is and they did a good job with the few dynamic missions at some point you've seen it all. the event stuff is nice because you actually have puzzles and shit for a while instead of "hurr just bumrush everything" (which makes getting the highest reward a fucking chore with randoms).

<inb4 buying ea games

came with origin+ trial which was activated automatically, so might as well use it to check how bad it really is.

>inb4 origin

one word: titanfall. fuck off.

but I can already see they gonna fuck that up, they already talked about "improving the game loop" when that stuff is fine. javelins each play quite differently and have each a handful of build options. remember iron man 2 and the hulk buster? that's basically anthem. what bombed anthem was the utters shit state of the game technically and in usability (those fucking loading screens). they probably think no one plays their game because it's too complicated or some shit, and not the marvel-tier dialogs (which thankfully are done after the story) that are presented like a fucking visual novel interspersed with exposition while walking flying.

all they'd really need is to fix that last flaws like higher pop for the open world (if fucking destiny can cram 20-30 people into their small-ass areas, there's no excuse when battlefield can handle 100 all shooting at each other just fine).

>>16838699

>>16839053

> I would have thought that EA would have pulled the trigger and kill the studio,

they can't because they literally don't have any more high profile studios after they killed them all. there's bioware, dice and maybe criterion, but the first 2 are run like an uni campus and the latter is demoted to support studio (and still their shit is the usually the best part of the game, like the space stuff in eafront). the rest is just some nondescript "ea montreal" etc and no one really cares what those mix of studios shits out.

if they nuke any studio it would need to be dice sweden to make those diversity hires and shitter devs like demize either learn to code frostbite or fuck off.

This. The prologue is an insult to the players and storytelling in general. You don't kill your main character in the first 5 minutes and replace him with a clone who - somehow - acts and thinks like the original character.

As for ME3, the end is the least of its problems, the entire game was dumbed down. They've turned Cerberus into a big bad villain "worse than the Reapers", retconned Ashley into an ugly bimbo (not a christcuck anti-xeno anymore).

It wasn't a clone, they just resurrected the main character in a "science" way. It's in no way different than casting resurrection on someone in a D&D setting. Actually I was really impressed with ME2 and how it started given I was 10 years younger when I played it.

I think that's more due to early rewrites.

Rumor has it that Drew Karpynshyn (lead writer) wanted Shep to simply be part machine… and not a clone per se. And Cerberus had little to do with the main plot. It was going to be none other than the Geth - specifically Legion and his anti-Reaper contingent - who rescued us and rebuilt us and told us about the Collectors. This was also going to be why Shep couldn't get help from others and he went off on his own to form his own team.

I think the rumors are true, because you can see that Legion had unused audio files that took place in the earliest parts of the game.. like when we go to talk to the Council and stuff and they don't trust that we suddenly have a Geth with us.

Another sign that it may be true is that the earliest trailers had Illusive Man and Miranda observing Shepherd as outsiders. Apparently Miranda's role was that she was going to infiltrate the crew and be more of a femme fatale/spy girl, and only reveal herself to be in Cerberus later on. Then you'd have to make a choice to trust her. It had nothing to do with you being a clone or her being he person who rebuilt you. You'd just be tempted by keeping her titties around.. and maybe Illusive Man makes a generous offer or something.

I don't know why they changed it, but to me, it sounds great.. and I already like ME2 as it is, but this somehow makes more sense. And they never could drop the "cyborg" angle entirely. It just became less a part of the plot.. but Drew K wanted to explore more issues about Shep possibly being an AI and making the player question whether he was truly human or not. This was all intended to make it tougher in the endgame on whether you outright Destroy the reapers. Since you were essentially/possibly a machine yourself.

Just to add, I think they touched on all of the same points, but went about them in other ways. I think EDI especially took the place of

"cyborg Shep identity crisis". Instead of addressing all of those existential/AI issues within Shep himself, they did it through a little sister character.

I think it somewhat fails though. Tossing a little sister on me felt more manipulative and I gladly killed her out of resentment.

They really couldn't decide.. and I think it's just due to this messiness of the rewrites I mentioned. They couldn't fully commit to the cyborg thing or the clone thing. Jacob, I think, says you're not a clone.. and in the same breath, says you were just a pile of meat at first.

On second thought, you're right. I forgot the whole "Lazarus" process showed those little cutscenes of your corpse being injected with rejuvenating drugs or something. Then there was a hint of Reaper tech that they didn't delve much into, until 3, when Shep invaded the Cerberus base and realized the extent of it.

because DK got fired or fucked off and got replaced by absolute hacks. even thinking about the possible dark matter story makes more sense than MUH SKYNET RIPOFF.

It's especially odd given EA's tendency to shut down studios for no real reason. Bioware has failed them more than any other studio and yet they're still going. It makes no sense.

Well Bioware is Bioware in name only, as the founders have left and they keep replacing the staff. It's also the RPG division of EA, that they hope they could use to penetrate the WRPG market. I have three theories to explain why it still exist

>The intern theory

It's not so much of a studio, but a place where interns are shifted put to work lots of hours, so that they could have something to put on their resume. Basically it's the stepping stone in one's career as a gamedev.

>The SJW theory

Because EA and Bioware have used the LGBTQAJEW+ to protect from criticism, and because Bioware is now associated with pro LGBT games, if EA were to shut down the studio they would be seen as transphobic, and the PR team of EA are so scared of this, that they will keep the studio on just to apease the mob, they themselves have created(kinda like a Frankenstein situation).

>The RPG division theory

As I have said, EA doesn't have any other RPG studio(unless I am mistaken) and they don't have a foothold in that market anymore(they might have had during Dragon Age Origins and Mass Effect 2). Sure they dominate the sport market with FIFA, and still have a strong foothold in the FPS with Battlefeld and recently Apex Legends(the battle royale market). They think it's easier to use a studio that already has a "rich" history of RPG games, rather than creating a new studio, so they keep Bioware on, in the hopes that one day they will create the next Witcher game that will dominate the market.

They're basically the RPG arm of EA. That arm can be like 5 people, even if they aren't fired already.

The fapping arm is probably the microtransaction arm and it has only 12 people because whales are easy money.

except bioware always sucked at it. hardly anything had any effect, even less in the long term. you get some good/bad boy points and that's it. that they couldn't even be arsed to properly conclude shit like the arachni queen just show how shit those devs were. ME and DA were always linear as fuck, most "choices" were only window dressing with an npc not showing up anymore or slightly altered dialog.

>>16843035

>I have three theories to explain why it still exist

bioware is kept around for the brand name only. remember how back then they called almost every studio bioware X? it was to fool normalfags. also doesn't matter what game they make, remember EA wanted them to make the next C&C of all games. anthem is a destinyclone which isn't saved by being able to fuck aliens ironically the best gameplay they produced in years, but I bet that was fixed by another studio, like dice LA has to constantly fix dice sweden's retarded bullshit

>>16843051

I will never understand their decision to drop alien waifus in favor of space niggers. Pretty sure the only reason the TORtanic servers are still up is due to the waifus.

cost saving. different routes which the majority will hardly ever see is a waste of money. don't forget in bioware fashion the majority of those "romances" would be stronk womyn dangerhairs and gays. fuck it feels like half the population in anthem is gay already.

also wouldn't really work with anthem since it's first person 99% of the time and POV is probably too problematic for the betas at bioware when they usually watch their wives getting fucked.

>Pretty sure the only reason the TORtanic servers are still up is due to the waifus.

nah, that's star wars. don't forget you hardly keep companions in the expansions. it's a fucking shit timeline where stuff like TOR is one of the better star wars content in general.

I can at least give it that Destiny and Bungie got their shit together from the total disaster it once was into something that is kinda decent in small bursts, not that it excuses Bungie in any regard period but at least they tried to put in the effort wheres EAware just allowed shit to go so bad that even Normal fags actively mock you if you bought any Bioware game pass ME2.

He's thinking of the third game in both of those series. DA2 went with the "everyone wants to fuck you no matter what sex you play" approach (to the point of changing Anders' backstory so that he's straight if you play a woman and bi if you play a man) and ME2 only had one non-heterosexual non-asari option.

Bioware couldn't even make a Destiny clone. They didn't understand the appeal of the looter-shooter genre. When people were asking for more loot, their reaction was: "why do they want more weapons in the loot? Aren't the decals and the skins enough?"

farming that one FOTM exotic to be OP till it's inevitably nerfed while getting dunked on by everybody else?

in anthem every weapon type usually has 3-4 distinctive versions, more it will just end up as "X but worse". besides, you don't need dozens of guns when there is already a roll on 4 inscriptions (=boni) and their bonus range.

only a retard asks for MUH NUMBER OF GUNS and ignores everything else. you can switch classes freely and there is already enough to farm to gear even one.
