The End of (the Season of) Opulence

As this Season wraps up, I find myself looking back at the Forsaken expansion and ruminating on what it did, what it tried to do, and where it could have done better. 

Anthem: Game of Potential

I was one of the early adapters. I bought Anthem on pre-order, I played the Beta.  I was lucky in that I didn’t have any of the hard crashes or significant glitches that others had experienced but the game was still a little rough.  It was fun, though.

First Week: Anthem

Anthem is a looter shooter that combines the third person shooter experience with the action role playing experience, to varying degrees of success. Taking place in Bastion, a country lacking in details on an unnamed planet, the name Anthem refers to the Anthem of Creation, a supernatural force of unknown power and origin that feeds dangerous relics and creates strange beasts. You play a Freelancer, a sort of mercenary that pilots a Javelin, a suit of power armor that allows you to fly and battle the dangers of Bastion, and the factions that would try to harness the Anthem for themselves.
