oh shit that's right, still not used to the names yet lol

yeah her smoke ability is sweet
The enemy squad at the end had one too. We had a great, messy fight in The Pit (that tall cylindrical place) fighting it out and firing smoke back and forth for a solid two minutes. It was awesome; I wish I recorded stuff. It wasn't amazing playing, but it was fantastic play. Tons of fun; like a story Austin would tell.

My Apex Legends experience (PC) has largely been getting merc'd before I can barely get anything more than a single weapon.

I'm with Abby, I kind of had my fill of the BR genre with PUBG. Loading up a game, dropping, looting just to die in five seconds to people who have put in 20x as much time as you just sucks.

The wimp ass voice acting from the protagonist makes me wish Anthem went with silence

Maybe the female voice is better, which seems to be the case 90% of the time

I don’t hate the voice acting in Anthem but to each their own.

I just don’t like when I don’t have a voice at all. Like what RDR2 online is doing. Like what The Division did. It’s a minor complaint but it’s mine.

Destiny 2 was really dumb about this, because the character talked once in awhile in Destiny 1 (remember the "Little Light" joke?). The character didn't talk in Destiny 2 at all until the expansion where they effectively said "Naw, I'ma do this for me because of what they did to Cayde," and it was supposed to be a big badass moment but...we all heard you talk for a whole game then just stop, Protagonist.

Reception has varied widely according to its use, ranging from praise for its help immersing a player in the game, with titles such as Half-Life 2 and franchises such as Mario and The Legend of Zelda frequently cited, while the protagonist's lack of communication has at times been noted as hindersome to plot development, as in one reviewer's comments on Grand Theft Auto III.[7] Others have stated that real immersion in a game would require a character to speak, since in such situations, the player would naturally vocalize and the protagonist does not

What were your stats for that match?
iirc aside from a few stragglers we only got into one “real” fight and it was the last one
we downed the first two and I chased after the last but they got me before I could get them
our third (who was super good) got downed after LiK revived me and I was down again half a second later (we were in a tiny ass room) but he punched them and won it for us lol

Think I'm at about 13 wins now. Got 2 back to back tonight with some friends and a bunch of #2 and 3s on PS4. It was painful watching the stream today
People are really good on PC. I can usually hang on PC shooters but the crowd for Apex seems savage. I'm doing alright on Xbox. Watching the stream was tough though, still.

I don't have a problem with needles in general but there's something that just makes me uncomfortable watching Apex's dude just constantly stab his arm over and over lol.

Well I have no needle phobia but Prey makes my eye hurt, or feel raw or numb. I've felt that redness at some point, and the game really brings it back.
