Anthem's endgame loot drops have been boosted, more changes are coming

One of the most common complaints about Anthem is that the endgame loot situation really sucks, which is a pretty big problem for a game that's very explicitly a looter-shooter.

BioWare fixed the bug, which is usually a good thing, but in this case it prompted players to stage a boycott demanding that it be brought back.

Valve takes steps against Steam review bombs

A 'review bomb' is a sudden influx of a large number of negative user reviews of a game, usually regardless of its actual quality, intended to discredit or punish its developer or publisher. Metro 2033 and Last Light are recent high-profile examples: Steam users who were unhappy with Deep Silver's decision to make Metro Exodus an Epic Store exclusive dropped thousands of negative reviews on its predecessors, enough to negatively impact their overall user ratings.
