After ME3, it was clear the old Bioware was...very dead. That was a decade ago. Anthem never had a chance, and the fact that EA's involvement *improved* development efforts really says everything that needs to be said.

Shipping is $59.98. For a used copy.

My first TV star crush.

I'm still kinda pissed that they took people off the Dragon Age 4 team (thus causing yet another delay) for that POS.

...copies of Anthem, most of which are sealed, marked at $0.01 on their receipt, and add up to a total cost of $0.41 after tax....

Anyone got an explanation for how that works? Sales Taxes, including State, City, and County are usually a %. Even VAT. How does a 1 cent purchase have 40 cents of tax?

Or is this some janky after total cost rebate?

I like Anthem well enough.  The flying was fantastic, the gameplay was fun enough.  It wasn't a bad game, it just wasn't a great game.

You missed the first part of that sentence.  "Just two weeks ago, Reddit user Spider-Man_Fan posted a screenshot of their score: count 'em, that's 37 (in a row) copies of Anthem, most of which are sealed, marked at $0.01"

37 copies at a penny each.  $0.37 + 10% tax (rounded up to the nearest penny) = $0.41

The bones of a good game covered in rotten flesh and stuffed with elephant shiat.

Oh.... They BOUGHT 37 copies of a failed game.... Gee, I wonder why I didn't assume that was a way to go.

Thank you, I honestly couldn't figure out how that worked.
