    Apex Legends

    That kill was great @PieFacE nicely done! As far as websites that track wins or kills I don't know of any right now, though I am sure one will pop up soon enough. It took a little while for Fortnite to get a stat tracking website, so I assume the same will be true for Apex. I agree with you about the final circle thing. The game has announcements for all sorts like "first kill", "kill leader", but it doesn't have one for "final three teams remaining". Sometimes one of the heroes will mention it, though that seems to be infrequent at best.

    Me and my squad are still chasing that elusive win. We got to the final two several times tonight, but constantly got outplayed each time.

    Apex Legends

    The toxicity issue is mitigated by the fact you don't need to talk as the game has a robust ping system. You can ping anything and the character will say it for you. Need ammo? Ping the ammo you need in your inventory and the character will say to the squad "I need more heavy ammo". Found a weapon someone might want? Ping the weapon and character will say "I found a Peacekeeper shotgun, Level 2" and the weapon will appear on the map, and will be highlighted in game. You can do this for everything its amazing. You can literally win matches with your random squad with your voice chat 100% muted. Whether people will start throwing games? I don't know. Right now the community is having way too much fun to tank a 15 - 20 minute match. A round in Apex is about as long as a round in Battlefield, but the former in my opinion is vastly more fun.

    WWE: General Chat

    I really hope so. I think entrance music is a very important aspect. I remember when WWE licenced music for their biggest stars and it made them feel even bigger, but those days are gone aside from Ronda Rousey. The Khan family will do well to make sure their biggest names have the best music regardless of how much it costs.

    Apex Legends

    BR as a genre has been flooded by a lot of bad games trying to get that Fortnite money which has hurt the genre a lot. I'm just glad that based on the AAA BR games that the genre is heading in the right direction. I'm also liking that the AAA devs aren't afraid to experiment in their BR games. It'd have been so easy to just make a AAA PUBG but none of them have. I suppose Blackout is the closest to PUBG, but even then Blackout has areas with zombies and helicopters, and other things that no other BR has. Not one AAA dev has played it safe so far and I like it.

    Apex Legends

    This game is forced 3-man squads so you can learn the game while potentially better players carry you. Plus it's 20 teams of 3 on a smaller map so you're pretty much always fighting something. This is likely the best BR game since The Culling which was also pretty fast paced on a tiny map. In the end it's free so all you have to lose is some space on your hard drive and an hour to see if it grabs you. Most matches are over in 15 minutes so you could get a fair few matches done in your first hour.

    JIMMY! JIMMY! JIMMY F'N HAVOC!... IS ALL ELITE! The Havoc vs Ambrose match is gonna happen if Ambrose actually leaves and it's not all a work.

    Apex Legends

    This game is a ton of fun. I love the emphasis on team play and the emphasis on shorter matches in general. The match lengths in Apex if you're getting to the end each time are about 15-20 minutes long it's very pick up and play. The movement is sublime, the gun play is like Call of Duty when Call of Duty was good and the map design is varied, and very fluid to move around. If this game fails to gain traction long term it might be a sign of the genre itself losing traction as this game should succeed, it's that good.

    Tyrone Mings

    Great debut, he played well. He was calm, composed, great passes and curb stomped a bitch.. I'm impressed

    Fortnite

    I literally never saw this in Epic Games future when they were making Gears of War games. It's fascinating to watch the biggest game of all time grow in real time. Because of server limits there were only 100 players at this concert, but apparently 10 million players logged in to Fortnite to watch this show live in-game. 10 million concurrent players. We may never see another game this big in our lifetime, I thought Minecraft back in the day was a cultural phenomenon, but this is something else..

    WWE: General Chat

    There is talk going around that Ambrose has an AEW contract waiting for him and it's huge. I think by the time AEW starts its live weekly TV show its roster is going to be beyond impressive. I just love that WWE are squirming a bit as they have been way too comfortable for way too long.

    Pre match thread

    Chester was apparently playing injured a good 10 games ago so he likely needs a few weeks rest at the very least. I wouldn't like to imagine what mild injuries he's made worse by playing every game.

    Cardiff player on missing plane

    Hopefully they find them. Closure at this point is going to be the most important thing.

    Cardiff player on missing plane

    I'd have been fearing the worst within hours of the missing plane being called in. Even if the pilot and Sala survived the crash they would have died less than an hour later in the sub-zero waters. Your time of survival in 0 Celsius water is about 45 minutes assuming you had some kind of life jacket. As horrible as it is Sala and his pilot likely died on the 21st January, and depending where the crash happened they're potentially irretrievable.

    Fallout 76

    Atomic Heart is BioShock meets Bloodborne so while the game will likely be great on its own merits, it's not aiming to be the next Fallout. It's the same as The Outer Worlds. Yes that game is written and produced by the creators of Fallout, but that game is more like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Fallout is unfortunately a very unique setting, and a very unique IP in the gaming world. The only game like Fallout is Fallout which is why shit like Fallout 76 is so frustrating because it's a waste of a great IP.

    Anthem

    It's because of all of EA's **** ups over the last couple years. It's very hard to get excited about a game that people expect EA to ruin somehow. Having played both the Alpha and now Demo/Beta of Anthem I think the game will have an audience. The game in the Demo is a lot more fun than it was in earlier builds, but it's just down to whether gamers give the game a shot because its publisher is trash.

    Jack Grealish

    That'd be great advice if his injury was caused by tackles. The injury Grealish had is one that plagues runners. He had shin splints which is an impact injury caused by doing the same thing over and over again, shin pads wouldn't have mitigated that. Shin pads are a confidence thing. You pick the ones that allow you to play inhibition free, but everyone deep down knows a bad tackle is going through them as if they weren't there regardless. If Grealish is happy with baby's first shin pads that cover 2% of his lower ankle then so be it.

    Anthem

    This game was absurdly average in the Alpha. I haven't got around to playing the Demo, but I can't imagine much has changed aside from the player having access to better abilities.

    Cardiff player on missing plane

    The larger pieces of the plane are likely deep underwater at this point. While the smaller debris is like trying to find a needle in a haystack assuming the majority of that hasn't also sunk at this point. They're looking for what is essentially a Range Rover with wings in a body of water that is 29,000 square miles. Last I heard they called off a search after searching over a 1,700 square mile area, they have barely scratched the surface (literally).

    Harvey Weinstein

    Seth MacFarlane the creator of Family Guy seems to know all of industries secrets. I think at this point every celebrity he's included in a pedophile/rapist/molestation joke has wound up guilty of it, or at least accused of it several years later with pretty solid evidence.

    What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Listening to it too. The majority of it is inoffensive radio rock which isn't bad, but it isn't good either. I think my favourite track upon my first listen is 'nihilist blues' which drops the whole rock aspect completely. If their future was more tracks like 'nihilist blues' I wouldn't be too disappointed, I just want them to stop pandering to the not quite pop, not quite rock sound that comprises the majority of 'amo'. The band need to pick a direction and go for it, as being indecisive is what damages bands long term.

    Resident Evil 2 remake

    This game is huge for replayability. You have the A/B scenarios. You have The 4th Survivor and The Tofu Survivor. Then you have The Ghost Survivors which is the first piece of free DLC coming shortly after release which is rumoured to be a randomised rogue-like. Then whatever costumes, weapons and cheats they have locked behind a certain number of completions. This game will likely keep people as busy as the original did. I think the only downside is some of the costumes being sold for real money on the in-game store, but those costumes seem to be keeping the DLC free so I'm not gonna complain too much.

    China Enters Console Market - Subor

    The biggest thing that will hold this console back is their overbearing government. They made consoles legal again a few years ago, but given how much vetting the government do and how many games they ban not much has changed.

    Fallout 76

    £54.99 was the release price for the standard edition. (£80 for the Tricentennial Edition and £174.99 for the Power Armour Edition) The whole game has been a scam at this point. I mean some may argue that as they delivered a product that it isn't a scam, but I wouldn't say the product was worth what they were charging at all. The current list of issues this game has had is astounding; Game releases broken and almost unplayable with no issues fixed from the beta. The Power Armour Edition (this was £174.99) was advertised with a premium West-Tek bag, but upon release the bag that fans expected was a cheap £1.50 nylon bag. Bethesda responded to the nylon bag issue stating, "there was an issue during manufacturing, we will not be doing anything about it". Bethesda responded again stating that all players affected would receive 500 Atoms (premium in-game currency). 500 Atoms amounts to £5, which isn't even enough to buy the premium West-Tek bag in-game. Bethesda responded a third time stating that anyone that gives proof of their Power Armour Edition purchase by January 31st 2019 would receive the premium bag they expected. These bags won't dispatch for another 6-months though. Someone then discovered that while claiming their bag they were given access to the back-end of Bethesda's website. This granted them access to every Power Edition owners address, phone number, credit card details and more. Yes. Not only did Bethesda try to rip off their most loyal fans with a cheap nylon bag, but they also leaked all of their info when trying to make up for it. Due to Bethesda's lack of knowledge of online games, players found and exploited duplication glitches. This was made worse by being able to trade freely, so these items wound up on eBay being sold for a premium. Bethesda patched the duplication glitch, but then players found a "dev room" in-game that has hundreds of every item in the game in it. So Bethesda solve one problem and then it's discovered the problem is arguably even worse. Bethesda teamed up with a company to make "Nuka Dark Rum". This is an £80 bottle of rum that comes in what looks like a really nice frosted glass bottle, but instead it's a basic bottle inside of a moulded plastic shell worth at best 50p. Finally and likely not the last of this, but dataminers have found loot crates cutely named "lunchboxes" in the code. These lunchboxes are assigned the ATX prefix for the Atomic Store, so a future update will add loot crates to Fallout 76's premium store. Just to add. Also contained in the code are lines stating what will be in the lunchboxes. Aside from in-game items, players can also get XP boosts, damage buffs and stat modifiers which in a game with PVP is super pay to win. Fallout 76 isn't just a disaster of a release it's one that has completely destroyed Bethesda's reputation as a developer. Elder Scrolls isn't even the next game they are working on. They are finishing up on Starfield which is set to release late-2020/early-2021 and then they will start full production on Elder Scrolls 6. I'd fully expect Elder Scrolls 6 in 2023/24 based on their current schedule. Now things could change, but after the Fallout 76 fiasco I think they are going to take it one game at a time and Starfield is 100% the next game to come out.

    Resident Evil 2 remake

    Dataminers have found lines of code that reference "camera angles" so this game may also feature that way of playing. It'll likely be an unlockable mode, but there is a chance. Very good odds of a first person mode as well given it's on the same engine as Resident Evil 7.
