Bioware’s latest game finally arrives this week. Anthem is out for everyone this Friday, regardless of your platform or if you have EA Access. I played a few hours of the beta and had a good time. But I’m also way too busy with like four other games so I won’t be picking Anthem up this week.


I still get a kick out of the fact that the player characters in Anthem are called Freelancers. As a fellow freelancer, I too spend most of my day flying around in a giant robot suit killing enemies. That was a lie. Most of my day as a freelancer is split between sending emails and waiting for emails. Sometimes I write stuff!

The week is also filled with a ton of Switch releases. If you’ve been wanting more Switch games, well then you haven’t been paying attention to how many Switch games are released every month. But also, you got even more options this week! Snakebird Primer on PC looks like a colorful puzzle game about cartoon snakes. Finally, Yakuza Kiwami arrives on PC this week, so you criminals out there can go beat up other criminals.

Oh boy I am so torn on Anthem, I like mechs, I like shooting, and I love me some looting...buuuut I also don’t like relying on randoms to not be too shit (and feel bad when I drag them down being shit) and I did this song and dance with Destiny twice, both times peacing out the second they asked for more money.

Also watching streams it seems like the game really likes to get in the way of fun with endless npc dialogue, bugs, and loading screens (oh god the loading screens).
