Yeah, there is no way the devs wanted any part in this.

True, although the jury is still out on whether the devs have actually made a decent game as well!

Well, again, they were pushed to make a GaaS game... I mean, don't get me wrong not all GaaS games are garbage, SoT's and TESO are decent examples but still, the vision from the start with this has been pure greed.

Yeah that's a fair point, and it's hard to put your all into a project that you're not on board with. But even within the realm of GaaS type games it looks like this might be a duffer

Everything I've seen so far has felt soulless and "designed by corporate"

It's ridiculous.

Downloaded.

Request to sign up and waiting for the activation email. Nothing.

They said it's having a problem and trying to sort it out. Apparently it's overcrowded. :fp:

Won't have much time to play since it's yet another one of those dumb weekend betas and I'm working all weekend so I'm not going to bother.

What time does the xbox beta go live? Seen different things from 3pm to 9pm? assuming the latter as trying to go in, it says "come back soon" still and shows as a preorder.

I am not very impressed. :dread:

Is this heading for Division type pricing within the first year?

I’ve watched some gameplay for this and it’s just doing nothing for me, looks like a bunch of QTE’s for some characters and pretty boring looking combat for the others.

Doubt it as the Avengers name alone would generate many sales.

Not sure - there could be something there at the end. But I can only ever see it being "OK" rather than great. And that's IF they pull it off.

The gameplay at the start suffers from you being much cooler in cutscenes (or other heroes around you) than what you're doing.

I think each character does control differently - but at the same time they never felt like the character they're meant to be. Hulk is dull as dishwater to play through lab room after lab room. And everyone know the Hulk gets angry to ....attack and heal? It just feels odd - and not at all like a power fantasy. (The Stormcaller in Anthem felt like a better Iron Man). No one blocks (except Cap - who might be the worst design/voice actor combo ever. It's just wrong) - why is Hulk doing a dodge or quick dodge?

They've gone for quasi gritty realism look - but then their viewpoint character is Ms Marvel. Her looking like a ball of plasticine looks out of place in the style they've chose,

I'll go back to rest of Beta (just to snow mission) but it's hard to be even vaguely excited, but also it's hard to condemn completely.

As someone who has watched every episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD I had to delete this game off my hard drive :slol: I don't even have a word to describe this game, it's not bad and it's not good it's just... nothing.

Not being able to fly as Iron Man more than a few meters from the ground is nuts. Thor was about the most fun I could get out of this and I was bored by the time I got to the Hulk section.

Not even the emote/costume marketplace was any good. Everything in there looked boring.

Sooo I’ve played a bit of the Beta so far. I feel wrong in I’m kinda enjoying it I feel like I’m in an Avengers Film. I’ve got past the first bit now need to wait for the install. Iron Man didn’t feel like Iron Man at all being restrained in flying height..

Felt a bit xMen legends almost

Iron Man’s flight doesn’t behave that way in the ‘actual’ game, just that intro mission. Just saying. In fact the vast majority of the game doesn’t behave like the intro, so if you put the pad down after that, then well...
