    I figure if I burn through 10 hours that fast then the game is good enough to sub to Premier for a month to keep playing.

    Oh I'm 100% trying it. I will NOT buy a game without trying it first if I've the option, and yes I liked the beta, but. It's only sensible.

    Thankfully I have a week-long project launching at work next week so using up this weekend makes sense.

    I subbed to premier for full access. I took Friday and Monday off.

    My body is ready for an Anthem bender tomorrow.

    Luckily I have Monday off anyway, and I only have a half day Friday cause of an already scheduled appointment. Also I just subbed to Origin Premier. Hopefully my pc can handle some not maxed out PC Anthem!

    I may have taken the week of the 25th to the 1st off. Starting tomorrow I just need to pretend this thread doesn't exist for a week. I can be stronk!

    I couldn't do the 10 year play time, that'd be almost torture. I already like the game quite a bit and only got to play a small while. If I got 10 hours and then had to wait again,it'd be like giving me back my cake, but just for one bite and that is MEAN.

    luckily, I'm rested up, finally recovering from my illness (seriously, there was... let's call it mucus... draining out of every part of my eyes it could drain from, and I was deathly tired. Now, it's lifting and I shall spend the day flying.

    also, it occurs to me that I'm friends with a lot of people on here with Origin PC but not so many yet that have it listed as a game of theirs. I'm Duchess_Archer on PC if anyone wants to add me.

    I wasn't going to get the premier access, but $15 is a lot easier to eat than $60 if it ends up not being a good game (which I doubt, but who knows).

    It also gives 10% off the full game, so if I buy it, I'll have pretty much paid $9 to try it and play it for a week early - $1.25ish per day rental is cool.

    AND it means I finally get to play Darksiders III, which I've been itching to play but waiting for a price drop.

    While my PC is fantastic for developing software, I don't have a GPU so I can only play on PS4. My weekend is jam-packed anyway, so it wouldn't even matter.

    I still hate all of you. lol

    The demo was based on an old build so it's not too surprising they can't just patch it to the release version

    If Apex does end up eating into Anthem's sales/cutting off its legs, thats a real smooth move by EA releasing it just weeks before Anthem.

    Haha, you underestimate EA. They released Apex before BF5 could get their battle royale mode out the door.

    A free battle royale against a struggling AAA title that was counting on its Battle Royale for incremental sales.

    They will do literally anything to maximize quarterly sales numbers even if it means shooting their own foot off see also starwars battlefront 2.

    I keep getting tempted but this is the way I am going. I figure it also gives them another week to sort their shit out before official launch and that's not a bad thing.

    I paid nothing for Anthem so if I hate it I'm not really out anything.

    I paid $350 for it, so it better be good!

    To be fair, I did get a free video card with it, though.

    One sec forwarding your post to Yong yeah so he can do a 20 minute video on how one gamer paid 350 dollars for anthem and fears the game will fail.

    The 2060 seems like a great card so far. It was a very nice upgrade from my 970, which was starting to struggle at 1080. It's nice to be able to play everything (not you, Assassin's Creed Odyssey) at 1440p Ultra.

    I'm still here with my 2-year old GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5... so far doing OK... I think?

    I really don't know much about optimization but playing the demo on highest settings seemed to run smooth.

    As a reminder, if you need another hit of Anthem gameplay, there's a stream going up in an li'l more than an hour (3:30 Central). It's about updates coming to Anthem, but I'm not sure if it's about updates between the demo and release, or future updates after release. They'll be playing Colossus, presumably to show off changes to the big boy's tankiness as well as other stuff.
