Had a couple of matches, struggled to get used to items and powers but I'll get used to it. Did rubbish first match, second ran out of ammo quickly but got 3 kills. For free can't complain.

Not quite how I expected but it's good for what is it. Hero Battle Royal Shooter.

Can only try later today. Any respawning like the new CoD BR mode?

Damn 1 million players in 8 hours.


Definitely will check this out tomorrow.

Poor Respawn, there's no way this is going to end well.

Titanfall 2 came out in 2016 (didn't realise it was that long ago) bought by EA in 2017 then in that time made a BR game, when the BR fad only really started with PubG in mid 2017.

They are a talented developer and should be making a big epic game, not some cash in BR game for EA. But that's EA for you. Watch them slowly shut down Respawn then Bioware. :P

And besides, their big epic game is coming this fall.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Only 17GB on ps4! Played a few games. Enjoyed it.

Yes and it's a great way of doing it. If you die, but a team mate is still alive and he's good enough, he can claim you 'Marker' from your cache. He can then take said marker to a revive station and revive you. So a single guy could survive from your team and revive everyone... As long as he is safe while he does it.

Haven't had that chance obviously, only played 2 games. Watch a bit of DrDisrespect play it. They were enjoying it.

Only thing they mention was an issue is healing, I agreed, it was kind slow and you couldn't do much while healing. 



Hmm, pie.

It’s fun. Gunplay and movement are top notch, as you’d expect from Respawn. I’d rate my BR experiences as follows:

Apex
PUBG
Blackout
Darwin
Fortnite
Culling

If Survival from Division counts, I’d put it between Blackout and Darwin.

Yeah that feature is great. Because if they didn't have it my team would just back out every time one of us died near the start. 

 

I had a game where the two of them got fucked up at the start. I hid and snuck up on the guy looting their bodies, killed him and got their banners. Then ran to a station that wasn't near by and called them in. Great feature.

Darwin is very niche. No guns, all about outplaying your enemy instead of just getting the drop on them, plus the overlord can make it interesting.

Really should get back on it, haven't played in a long time. Shame it struggled in the market, it's a really interesting idea.



Hmm, pie.

The healing is slow because you can resurrect team-mates imo. Death has less potential consequences than any other br to date.... As long as you have half decent team mates.



Downloading it now. I was going to skip it tbh but a couple of mates are going to be playing it. I've been peer pressured into playing.
