No, I didn't know anything special, I know I put a ton of hours into that game in the first 2 weeks and when I hit the end game I was like... are you kidding me?To me it says "the roadmap as presented does not and cannot accurately represent development on a AAA chapter-based, story-driven game like SQ42."
However you did call it correctly on Anthem, so I'm not going to be so simple as to say your viewpoint isn't valid
I am interested, in the case of Anthem, did you have info other than that which was available to the rest of us to call it so spot-on? And additionally, do you have additional information in regard to S42 which we great unwashed may not know about?
Think I ended up with 70-80hrs it wasn't hard to figure out that most people were going to feel the same way, after awhile you just tend to know what makes a game successful and what doesn't and it didn't have anything to do with personal taste, this was just a lack of content from a AAA company who sold this game like it was gods gift to us gamers and it was far from it lol.
I don't know what to say about SQ 42, I know we were watching video's of Gary Oldman in 2015 and its almost 2021, the games buggy as hell and every patch brings newer bigger bugs, I know the road map says Beta Q3 2020, no way that is happening lol. I heard they are hiring like 90+ people and there is only one reason for that, they trying to get SQ42 as fast as possible, I think they don't want to tell us its going to be another year before its done.
At some point, there has to be an end to all this, this endless alpha can't go on forever, at this rate the core game is 3+ years out and I don't know about you but a 60 hr campaign (that's about the average these days) that I will have will done less than 2 weeks doesn't cut it for me, I want the P.U. that is what I signed up for, that is what I invested thousands of dollars into along with about 90% of the rest of us. And I think CIG will sell this in chapters or a "live service" type deal, again, if they do this I think that is unacceptable, I hope I am wrong I would rather just have it all done and over with personally so they can focus on the real game.
I ask people, if CIG came out today and said, were scrapping SQ42 but that means will have the P.U. core game up and running in a years time I for one would be like, fuck ya screw SQ42 and I bet most of the others would agree lol. They may not admit it, but we all know the answer.
