This is looking more and more like Destiny.

Not sure about this

Spaz still hasn't decided on Anthem or not yet?

How many people are going to get this?

I'm still on the fence, looks like it could be good, but I have almost the exact same concerns with it that I had with Destiny, which is largely end game content. I wont be pre-ordering but a cheap day 1 price could convince me to jump in, Tobor is also keeping an eye on this.

I cancelled my preorder and bought Beat Saber instead. I am worried about end-game content too.

I am on the no side of the fence for now. I have not seen anything compelling about the game, but one pro is that the devs can fully concentrate on the PvE experience. Another pro is there will be matchmaking - afaik for everything in the game.

There will be an open demo Feb 1st-3rd which I will probably try out.

I'll wait till after release for this one.

All they've shown us so far is 'kill trash mob, trash mob , trash mob , boss'

Although that can be fun in a group, and gathering loot is always addictive, right now it isn't that compelling to me.

Decent video giving a breakdown on each Javelin type all in one video rather than having to watch multiple:

I'm still on the fence, I had fun in the alpha though, might come down to if Tobor gets it, been a long time since I've played a game with dad so it could be fun.

Plenty of time to check it out - there will be streams starting soon, and open demo at the start of Feb. Keep in mind that the full extent of microtransactions will not be revealed anytime soon.

They have continuously said microtransactions will be cosmetic only, though I guess its EA so that is always open to debate.

"Cosmetic only" doesnt describe how intrusive they will be.

I haven't followed this much but see it's out soon, Feb 22 I think.
Just watched the latest video and I'm not really sold.
Regarding microtransactions, EA has basically adopted it as part of their revenue stream. They make more money off Fifa UT annually than actual game sales across all titles. With the SW battlefront backlash it will be interesting how they try to keep gamers happy as well as shareholders.
