    Jason and I were reading up on that, they had a B-team in a different location doing all the heavy lifting on ME:A, including modifying Frostbite to do RPG stuff, which it did not want to do. That's why the facial animations and such went to shit, Frostbite had zero support for it and the new team couldn't get it in and get it right.

    Anthem is being handled by the A-Team of the past Mass Effects. EA figured Mass Effect had enough momentum and tribal knowledge that it didn't need the team (or apparently the engine) to keep the quality high, but apparently they were wrong.

    All that being said, I agree, I hope spit, shine, polish, fit, finish, and other car analogies are all properly applied.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    Yeah because as of right now BioWare is trying to build a title based on lively awesome action (shooting) that you'd want to repeat for 1,000 hours -- and when have they ever built a game like that??

    Transcript of the interview is up on Reddit btw.

    Truth!

    ::




    Hunters?

    Anthem comes out a year after Destiny 2 drops so 75-90% of their audience are going to be D2 players anyway.

    If it's good then we'll play both. If it's another The Division then there'll be a bounce and people will go back to D2 (which is what I think will happen).

    Either way, D2 is life. #shrug

    Rumor has it that some fresh gameplay video will be released during Gamescom 2017 (starting Aug. 22nd).

    BioWare general manager, Anthem director Aaryn Flynn steps down

    Destiny isn't the only major game to get a reboot.
