Making it Official: Anthem on Hold

Warning: Some elements of the negativity drive might be spinning up in this one. In case it wasn’t clear — I’ve put Anthem to one side for the moment. This started out in a fairly happy and OK space. The revised expectations I put on the game during the second demo weekend were...
