@cjduke: The thing I'd say about the loading screens is that, as someone who has played a lot of Destiny 2, while I haven't compared the two, I don't think Anthem's are actually that much longer, they just show up more frequently (which is a problem), and you can't do anything during. Unlike Destiny's, which you can use your inventory and stuff during (never mind that even just the loads themselves, where you watch your ship fly around, are more interesting than the same couple of static images with not useful 'tips').
It's such a bizarre thing, and I really hope somebody at Kotaku or somewhere is squeezing them for all the details on how this happened. Like after Andromeda there was a lengthy article about that game's long drawn out development.
But I bought it, so I'm bought in. Fun was had, and hopefully they can get it to a much better place. In the meantime, I'm going back to Destiny 2.
