It really doesn’t, it’s just not an easy game. One good gams enough to keep you playing.

Agreed. Basically retired my BR library.

Yeah I'm really digging Apex at the moment. It's sort of brought back my love for shooters and remind me of classic Q3A. It's the arena feel the game gives me that's doing it too. The announcer lends so much to the atmosphere of the game. I became the kill leader the other day after killing the kill leader in a match, the dialogue between the characters is awesome when stuff like that happens. Hands down though the ping system is going to change all future BR games. Any game without it is handicapping themselves. It reminds me a lot of the racing line in forza games when it came out, now it's in any game worth its salt. Plus they got rid of almost every annoying part of BR games with attachments swapping in automatically, attaching to weapons in your inventory, just the annoying shit is gone now and you can focus on running and gunning. Speaking of which the slide is fucking awesome and as close to a strafe jump as you're going to get from a controller (Yeah I play on console). I might consider building a PC to play this game though, it's that good... I hope they introduce more characters.

Yeah, I'm a bit on the fence on that one. I think it might be a good move to keep it in but I think perhaps that's the tipping point that will keep casuals from playing the game. Wall running mechanics kinda make for a steep learning curve. The game is plenty fast though and if you use the robot even faster.

They already explained why they didnt add it. Its basically to keep the actual meta of teamwork collapsing on people/teams a thing. Could you imagine wall running in some of the buildings :olo: ?

Titanfall nerds need to stop comparing this to titanfall. Its not titanfall. (In general, Not directed specifically at you, But yeah, stop it you.)

Won my first match of Apex last night. Felt so good, I bamboozled a guy using Mirage for the final kill too, he's without a doubt my favorite character at the moment. His ability is kinda OP, I really hope they don't nerf him lol.

I haven't really looked into it yet, I noticed most of the streamers I tend to watch are playing it.

I just can’t get into any multiplayer games anymore. I haven’t for many years. Which sucks because they used to be my favorite. I just don’t have enough time to get good. I feel like you need a significant amount of time to sink into multiplayer games. If I try to jump into a game for one hour once a week, I’ll get my ass handed to me. What’s the fun in that? I guess singleplayer is just more my speed these days. For better or worse...

It's single-player and co-op for me these days, but yeah, I know where you're coming from.

The only multiplayer I do these days is Hearthstone. Haven't even touched Overwatch in months.

Apex has sorta re-invigorated my multiplayer obsession. Nothing beats bamboozling.

I felt the same way a few years back. Then I picked up Titanfall for like 10 euros and got endless hours of fun out of it.
After which I tried SWBattlefront. That died out quickly.

Apex scratches that itch again, tho I don't play match after match as I did with Titanfall or Overwatch. Just a game or 2 each day.

I had no issues with the demo I played, controls were smooth and quite fun. I have a one x tho so that might help.

Played it yesterday for a bit, looks amazing whether it uses ray tracing or not and I honestly can't justify a 1200$ graphics card for ray tracing... I like it though, fun so far.

Hey man, if you wanna live your life without ray tracing thats on you. :olo:

No but seriously, work paid for mine so yeah, I'd of not upgraded if it wasnt for that. My 1080 was fine for normal game use. But compositing mixed reality and all that shit was stretching its limits. XD

This is how people felt when we used to smash them at Q3 back in the day :ninja:

I feel the same way, it's called growing up I guess. I save my competitive spirit for stuff that actually matters, like non-virtual hockey. Only geoff-like manbabies care about video game leaderboards (while still being shit).

Been playing Apex Legends over the past couple of weekends when I have some spare time.
Movement feels great; just sliding around the map is entertaining on its own.
Gunplay feels tight but wingman and peacekeeper need some slight balancing tweaks being on the more oppressive end. I find I tend to carry those two or a triple take w/ choke and a wingman.
New Havoc rifle is fun to use if you can find any energy ammo.
Redeployment balloons are a fantastic addition.

I tend to lean towards hoarding Ult Accelerants and playing Bloodhound to track down people. I also find myself playing Bangalore a lot and hoping for a digital threat attachment; her speedy passive is nice for her survivability.

I know it's a key component of the BR genre but the one thing I wish for that I feel would improve this game is removal of randomized loot and having designated spawn points for health, armor, ammo, and weapons forcing teams to try to control those resources.

I also can't seem to get through more than one match without the game crashing straight to desktop or giving me a memory access error at 0x00000000. Had this happen after getting to final 2 squads and looting a mastiff from a care package seconds after asking teammate if he wants it instead and him passing on it for me.

Played only my 10th Apex game yesterday, won with a full squad intact and got the finishing kill. Sticking with Lifeline now.

Anthem is buggy. Its gameplay is fine but its shallow.

Bricking consoles. Blue Screening desktops. Its a mess.
