    @tds418: I'm not changing or shifting anything. The one cool cutscene from Destiny 1 being in the paid DLC backs up my point IMO.Of course devs need money, but Destiny always seemed greedy to me. If i...

    @tds418: When I talk about Destiny I'm talking about the base games, so the video you linked to doesn't count to me. I said Destiny 1 didn't have a story, D2 does have one, even though it's not very g...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Anthem impressions thread. on the Anthem board

    @jacksmedulla: Destiny 1 was awful to me since it involved playing the same missions over and over. I never got the Destiny hype since it had no story, didn't have a lot of missions and wanted you to ...

    @jacksmedulla: Some of those tactics like the Colossus being the tank, the Storm being long range, etc are built into the game. I'm not sure how much strategy someone can expect if they only play with...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Anthem impressions thread. on the Anthem board

    @jacksmedulla: I think playing with randoms in any game feels hollow/solo, I only play with friends for the most part, but there is a team dynamic here due to the powers, the combo system, and the dif...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic CrackDown, Metro or Farcry. on the General Discussion board

    Anthem is out today if you have EA access. I'll probably buy Anthem. I'll rent Metro. Crackdown and Far Cry look crappy so I'll skip them.If someone is dying to play Crackdown 3 then they should proba...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Don't pre-order games. Also I pre-ordered a game. Here's why.. on the Far Cry: New Dawn board

    @sparky_buzzsaw: If someone wants to tryout a game and is iffy about how it'll be why not rent the game through Redbox, Gamefly, or whatever. It'll probably take a couple days to beat.

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic A better title?. on the Horizon Zero Dawn board

    Zero Dawn would've been good. Saying Horizon when it comes to video games makes me think of Forza. Horizon Zero Dawn feels too long and kinda random - Metal Gear Solid or Gears of War are kinda random...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Am I the only one with New Console Anxiety?. on the General Discussion board

    Anxiety should be for important things. Hopefully new consoles are in 2022. It feels like this gen didn't really get good until last year due to Red Dead, GOW, Spider-Man, and others.

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic I Like Apex Legends Because it Reminds Me of Left 4 Dead 2. on the General Discussion board

    If there was a spiritual successor to L4D it would definitely be Vermintide; they're both co-op focused team games where you're taking out waves/hordes of enemies. The characters also talk and interac...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Are EA competing with themselves, again?!. on the Electronic Arts board

    The timing could've been better, but I'd say no. Really, Apex coming out about a month before BF5's BR mode might be the dumber move by EA. Maybe they've could've sold way more BF5 in March if Apex ca...

    @superharman said: I find the world and character design incredibly bland and anytime the story has been presented I find myself quickly tuning out. I’m just not buying what they’re selling here and u...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Respawn's Titanfall Battle Royale game "Apex Legends" looks pretty great...and available now!. on the Apex Legends board

    It seems fine, but definitely unremarkable. The gunplay and powers feel good, but I don't like the graphics (style wise) or the look and feel of the map. The time to kill (TTK) is way too high. They s...

    @myketuna: Yeah, I figured it out yesterday, thanks though. I played it for a few hours, it largely feels like the same game just in a new setting. It being summer and in DC are welcome changes. I lik...

    My friend said he sent me an invite to it, but I don't see it in my email or on Xbox Live. I liked the first game, but I haven't been paying much attention to this one since I'm way more hyped for Ant...

    @tennmuerti: All I said was that "there was a little bit of Warframe" lol. I've played all 3 of these games too. The closest games to having movement like Anthem are MEA and Warframe. In WF you're run...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on Anthem?. on the Warframe board

    @silversaint: There's a lot of Mass Effect in Anthem; the armor design, the powers, the combo system, the shooting, some of the movement is like jetpacks in MEA. Overall it feels like ME3 multiplayer ...

  • Deathstriker posted a message in the forum topic What one game from the current gen do you wish everyone would give a chance to?. on the General Discussion board

    Vermintide 2 since it's easily the best first person melee combat and archery that I've played - it puts games like Skyrim to shame. It also scratches that co-op team play itch that Left 4 Dead, ME3 m...
