They actually do have different engines, sorta. The engine for Andromeda is a version that was heavily modified by Bioware specifically for RPGs. Read more

For Andromeda, yes. But for Anthem, EA gave Bioware the choice NOT to use Frostbite.

The engine is not biowares fault. All EA studios are forced to use it and it became a mess after being tampered with and upgraded and passed from game to game. It was the biggest problem with ME Andromeda too. Other things like Bioware leads not ebing able to decide what exactly the game should be is Biowares fault. Read more

By endgame content I generally mean the stuff that comes after competing the main story campaign. Games like Destiny, the Division, Anthem (I’m assuming here), all tend to have campaigns that take 10-15 hours or so to finish. Then they become an incessant feedback loop to encourage you to grind for better gear etc. Read more

Sunk cost fallacy. Cut your losses Bioware and just make a new, less terrible game with the same engine.

I was working at Gamestop when Mass Effect 3 came out. The assistant manager and I both told the manager we were taking bereavement time if Garrus died. She assumed we were joking. I can’t speak for the assistant manager, but I was at least half serious.

No, it really is self-destructive. These companies are feeding off themselves. It’s the PEF brokers sucking the ‘value’ out of a company, its name and IP, until there’s nothing left. Then they sell off the desiccated remains and move onto the next company.

You spent 14 billion years crafting the cosmos. It's not surprising 70 hrs doesn't seem like a whole lot of time to you.

Did this game do well financially? I know it was pretty polarizing for a lot of people on if it was fun and a good game, but I also don’t think I really heard anything about it once a week or two passed after it came out. Read more
