Apex looks fun but I suck. Is there a way to practice? I jumped straight in and got a few colorful words for doing the wrong thing - probably deserved it but still.

No one deserves colourful words for trying to learn. I guess there will always be dickheads no matter what game one plays.

There's a quite a lot of youtube vids on tips/tricks going up for Apex. Might be a good place to start to avoid the foul language.

Honestly I just jumped in... turned voice chat off so I didn't have to listen to others and just followed my team around for a few games
It is fun and I am really enjoying it. Probably more than I ever enjoyed PUBG!
That would be related to how easy the looting is, and how it doesn't let you swap your good item for a lesser one.

Also playing Deep Rock Galactic. A nice 4 player co-op early access game, levels have enough variety to make the whole thing interesting. As do the different classes you can play as... Lots of getting lost and attacked by bugs though.

I'm trying to decide which of my new game to download first... Cities Skylines is done. Killer Instinct is gonna take a while with it being 28Gb. Done about 6Gb now.

Apex is a 12Gb download with total space being 20Gb on install. Tempted to do this first.

Finally downloaded Apex overnight. Was afraid I'd wake up with a headache as I commonly do when running my PC overnight in my bedroom but was ok. Now to find time to play it.

It seems to have hit that sweet spot between Fortnite and PUBG.
Not full realism... but not full cartoon either.

I don't think I have seen another game on top of the Twitch viewer list since it was released. When I just checked it was over 4 times the viewers of any other game.


Honestly I have really enjoyed it, probably more than any other BR game I have played. There are some changes that are needed to some guns, but overall it feels pretty nice to play. No characters feel OP currently.. but then again I suck so I probably wouldn't notice if they were

Personally I think Battlefield needs to start looking at the modern/near future setting again and work on making a 120 player match experience.

Leave the BR stuff at EA to Apex.

Operation Market Garden Battle Royale just wouldn't be right.

All Battlefield needs to do is look at what made BF2142 and Bad Company 2 great and copy it.

Those Titan battles were some of my favourite moments in gaming ever, hanging out in them, firing my rocket attachment into them to kill guys, hectic battles.

So they need to make Bad Company 2142?... I could see myself playing a game like that actually!

I really need to play through BC2 properly. I got a free Origin code for way back and only got through the first or second mission before moving onto something else.

I never played it, I struggle with single player games as they don't have enough interaction - way more fun to play coop or PVP with some friends and talk shit

Yeah, I feel the same way about single player games. There's only a handful of single player games I've ever played through alone namely inFamous and Mafia 2 (and Diablo 3 during the first year of release when I played mostly solo). I've always been a co-op game with my bro. Even with PvP games like UT or BF1942, we'd always play team modes with bots. These days, it's mainly Diablo 3 coz group play is always co-op.

Tried Apex again. Turned the mic off. Lasted about 5 minutes but almost managed to kill someone.

Thought I'd spectate the rest of the match - wow, the guys that did well were in a different league!

It's a fun game but something I'm not going to sink enough time in to be any good at...
