    I know this community has a pretty big Destiny 2 (and Warframe) following, and was wondering how many people will be looking to get into the VIP demo this weekend (and the regular demo the weekend after, 1st-3rd of Feb)?

    I thought I'd start up a username exchange for people like me who don't have anyone to play with over the weekend. As far as I'm aware there are meant to be 3 friend codes to get into the VIP demo being sent to everyone who is in it at some point, so we could also use this thread to exchange codes for those who want to play but haven't preordered or used Origin Access to get in.

    Anyway, here's the deets:

    If it's part of EA Access Premium Premiere Whatever it is, I'll be trying it out on PC for sure. But I'm not sure what my username is on there!

    I have young kids so typically start playing after 9:30 PM or so

    Anyone that lines up with that, feel free to add me on Origin if I don't check in enough on this thread and add you.

    @rorie: It sure is! That's how I'll be playing it too.

    Alright, should be up to date with everyone's details now. If we get enough PC interest for this/the full game it might be worth getting a Discord going too. Maybe the console players could use it to organise sessions like the MonHun Discord does as well. We'll see.

    Hate to be the first beggar but if anyone would be willing to send me a referral link I would greatly appreciate it! The friend codes apparently aren't platform-specific so any platform would work.

    EDIT: Got a code, as I say in my later posts.

    I'm really interested in the game, but haven't been able to preorder it yet. I would be happy to jump on with some people this weekend if there's an available friend code. Piglet9303 on PS4!

    And I'm US PST for timezone.

    Okay so I have no idea how this happened but I went here and my EA account had 3 friend codes to give out even though I didn't have demo access myself and didn't preorder. I used one of them on myself and I have access now. Unfortunately I need to give the other two to my friends but I wanted to let everyone know to check that link to see if you have friend codes for some reason like I did.

    @theloyaltraitor: Crazy, I just clicked that link and was already logged in and it said I had 3 passes, I redeemed one for myself. I had Basic Origin Access a while ago (december) so I wonder if it that was the reason or if it was a general mistake. Also now when I start up Anthem it just says the server is offline (earlier in the day when I tried it said it was offline then another message said I didn't have access).

    I'm really curious to hear first hand impressions.

    I hope you just have to kinda play it to get it because as much as I want to like this game, all the footage I've watched of it just kinda seems.. boring.

    My biggest pet peeve in sci-fi games is when they shove sci-fi elements in a boring environment like a jungle with rock temples or something. The other pet peeve is a sci-fi game where your primary weapons are regular ol' bullet shooting machine guns, shotguns, smg's.. I want to see cool future guns that shoot lasers and cerebral bores. Holding your reticle over a weird robot thing and seeing number fly off as your super cool future rifle just goes ratatatat is kinda deflating.

    And Anthem from what I've seen has both of those things. I hope the jungle part is just the tutorial stage and you go to different areas because if it's all Just Cause in mech suits then I won't be able to get behind that.

    So I hope people play it and say it's awesome because I really would love a fun new game with a long-tail to keep me busy. Last time I really got into one of those was probably The Division.

    I play a goodly amount of Destiny, it works for my brain and I can listen to podcasts while I play. Plus fun action sci-fi.

    Anthem looks like a similar feedback loop, so I am hoping it is good.

    @humanity: All I can say to that is you will have to try it yourself. Even if others love it you might not. I would think if you enjoyed Destiny and the Division you will like it though. Although I didn't like the Division very much. Played Destiny for years though.
