    You can just ignore them if you want. Or not be such a misanthrope :)

    You're already in? More first impressions, please! Platform, performance, graphics, weapons, abilities, etc.

    It seems really good. All the shooty stuff hits the right buttons, special powers, fast movement. Squad comms are really well implemented. Not really my cup of tea though.

    Engine (and assets) seem lefted straight from TF2, so it should perform just like that game, except for the larger enviroment. Keeps a good 1080p60 for me with almost everything maxed.

    I'm not really feeling it though. I mean, I don't like BR, so there's that. But I don't see how this is supposed to be a Titanfall game even. Not just because of the lack of titans, but there's no wall running either.

    No titans, no pilots. Pilots can do the wall running.

    Playing on Xbox and it runs like a dream. Had 1000 premium currency due to ea access and used it to unlock the dude with the decoy which is amazing. It's probably because it's new but the decoy constantly fools people and managed to grab second place in our second game with randoms.

    Think this will do very well

    As for weapons I haven't had loads. Had a rather tasty shotgun at one point and some assault rifles, been a bit scared to use pistols as I don't know how viable they are.

    Oh and the UI is excellent, very simple to use.

    1st game on xbox. Our squad placed top 3. Chose wraith and didn’t like her much. Everyone seems to play bloodhound.

    I am not a fan of squad games just because I am so rubbish I hate letting the team down.

    And people are likely to take this competitively.

    No need for comms though as you can point and signal things with a button press. If people get shitty with you that's their issue :)

    Don't worry about letting people down. Just have fun :)

    My first winning team had a guy with zero kills who for the majority of the match didn't even had a gun!

    It didn't matter the other guy and I did the killing. He helped us by marking enemy positions. We wouldn't have won without him seeing the last two players.

    Looks at the very least interesting (and usually these Royale games seem very "not for me"). The art style or the lighting seems a bit weird, though.

    So it has been confirmed that this was originally Titanfall 3, rather than a spin off project. It must have morphed into Apex Legends midway through development, dropping a lot of the elements from the original games in order to fit a free to play model.

    I don't usually care much for these games but this feels and plays great (agree the colours/lighting feel a bit 'off'). I love the focus on squad play, though inevitably I'm standing around empty-handed as I watch my squadmates rifle through the supply crates they found before I did. Have managed to get a few kills at least. Familiarity with Titanfall definitely helps. Will probably enjoy this for a few days, until other people get good and start mopping the floor with me.

    One solo game, this feels like it could do really well. Colour me impressed, especially for free. Seems like blackout with abilities too me. But I didn’t play that outside the beta. May push Activisions hand on considering ftp for blackout.

    I see the comments section on the main story for this has been descended upon by miserable cunts as usual. Just find another hobby.

    What are the odds that this does better than Anthem?

    Just played my first game... Fairly impressed. Didn't think I'd say that.

    The ping system is great and the way you have to drop together really helps the squad cohesion. A few good subtle design decisions.

    Promising...

    Well they are certainly an “eclectic” group of characters aren’t they

    Ha, got a couple of kills in my first game and then zero in my subsequent ones. Seems this is already beginning to happen ;)

    Bah, I should probably go back and try the training mission again. Everything made sense in the tutorial, but in actual combat I end up mostly spamming the D-pad and shoulder buttons and hoping for the best.

    Next time I'll try actually shooting instead.

    Just need to learn the game a bit more tbh. I'm vaguely familiar with the guns from my time playing TF2. But some definitely feel quite different. The TTK seems a bit higher too, and I'm not sure of the effects of armour/healing durations etc. yet. It'll come.

    I remember I didn't really understand PUBG for the first 10 hours...

    @Tomo You're absolutely right. But for me, by the time it comes everyone else will be far, far gone...

    Seems very promising though. I think I'll continue enjoying it for a bit even if I remain completely inept.
