A few years ago, when Anthem was first announced at E3 2017 I fell in love with this awesome-looking game with realistic graphics, unique facial animations, flight, an Ironman suit, and great ultimate missile barrages. I knew I wanted to play that game. It was [gaming] love at first sight.
I played the Anthem Alpha test, but I won’t talk about any of my experience playing that here.
You will read my Anthem VIP demo first impressions, wholly. Before I get there, I have to vent some of what affected other players who shared the same enthusiasm.
The War Campaign continues in Patch 8.1.5 with Lady Jaina sending you to Freehold to learn more about Lady Ashvane joining forces with Sylvanas.
Then, Valeera delivers a message to Jaina from Baine. Baine brings Derek Proudmoore as a undead to Jaina at Theramore.

For many years, I had played Blizzard video games and FPS video games with 60Hz monitors. Until a couple of years ago, when I decided that to maximize productivity between writing for a website, processing images and video in Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro, watching Netflix and Hulu, reading comic books and news online, checking Twitter, YouTube or Twitch, or simply playing a video game — all of that was too much to handle with a single monitor.
Instead of retiring my older ACER 60Hz monitor, I complimented it by adding an ASUS 144Hz monitor. And, oh boy, did I get the surprise of my life.
