This vlog took quite an existential turn there at the end. I approve!

if you run this on a Chromecast on your TV, you'll be sending a whole lot less information to Google than you would running a PC game installed to your hard drive

Come again? How is Google receiving any info about PC games I play on my hard drive if I don't use any Google services? And since Stadia runs 100% on Google's services, how would they not receive all the information about how gamers use the service, regardless of which screen they play on? I don't follow this comment at all.

I just don't know man. On one hand, it seems like this is inevitably the way gaming is going (Microsoft behind the scenes seems to be going this direction as well). Or at least where the R&D money is going. But I'm just not convinced that streaming will give me as good an experience as a box under my TV. No matter how many teraflops or data centers Google has.

And then there's also the fact that I'm actively trying to minimize my use of Google as much as possible, but that's a whole other issue...

Oof...one of the three strongholds is a repeat of a story mission? Don't get me wrong, it annoyed me that Destiny 2 started doing this too, but at least D2 launched with six original strikes before they started to use campaign missions as strikes.

As a Destiny fan I've always been mildly curious about this game and would have picked it up if it delivered as I hoped it would, but the endgame content just seems too thin to justify at the moment. So much of my time spent in the Destiny endgame is raiding and PvP and without either it seems like the only thing to do is grind to play the same strikes/strongholds on harder difficulties? I'll pass for now. Lack of variety in the enviornments is also off-putting.

@morningcoffee: This is actually arguably one of the better times to get into Destiny 2, because at least on Amazon you can find a package with all the expansions + forsaken for well under $60. Even putting the endgame/PvP/gambit aside, that's a lot of campaign content, satisfying combat, and pretty skyboxes to dig into.

So I have seen more positive vibes at other sites but big surprise Giantbomb thinks a BioWare game is complete trash! This site always shits on BioWare no matter what.

Uh...what? Vinny frequently says ME2 is one of his favorite games of all time, and others on staff definitely feel similarly. Brad says he's cautiously optimistic about this game. Sure they knocked Andromeda but that was a pretty common sentiment...

Anyway, I've been skeptical about Anthem but went into this video open-minded since I haven't seen any extended gameplay videos. Not impressed in the slightest. I'm a regular Destiny player and a huge fan of that series (warts and all), and unless the endgame of Anthem turns out to be very substantive (which I'm doubtful of, with no PvP or raid-equivalent at launch), I think this is going to be a pass for me...

I remember playing this game back in the day, but I forgot just how bad it was until I read this review! FWIW, I remember at the time enjoying Nightfire and Everything or Nothing much more.
