  1. Randoms haven't been too bad. I've not found anyone wandering off like I did last night when I found myself on the other side of a hill from the two of you and being chased by the wall of death! I somehow made it back to you in time. There is a Players Met in the Friends section of the dashboard but I find it's limited and maybe the game has to support it in some way. I have entries for randoms I met in a squad in BFV but not the ones I met in Apex Legends.
  2. I had some good fun thanks to @Alan Stock and @moosegrinder last night. The game's certainly starting to grow on me.
  3. A little history to start for context: Battle Royale games have always been games I see the appeal of and have been happy to watch others play but avoided them myself as I had the feeling I'd be crap. I tried Blackout while it was in beta and surprised myself when started to enjoy myself a bit for solo and squads. That wasn't enough for me to buy the game though. I never tried Fortnite as a I knew I'd probably get muddled up juggling gun play and building. Apex Legends though, this could make me a regular player. I wasn't ever really worried how the gun play and movement would feel as this is Respawn and they nailed it with Titanfall. Yes, they dropped the wall running and titans but I'll admit when I started to think about it I wasn't sure how they'd fit in a BR game anyway. They've added so many quality of life features though that help me enjoy playing that little bit more. The ping system is really comprehensive and well thought out and makes communicating locations and requests easier with randoms. I'd even say it helps a bit with people you know too. The colour coding of loot and especially of the ammo so I'm not having to read text and remember what my gun uses. I've not had the best of luck with loot though and not even got a knockdown like I did in Blackout. It does put me off a little but it's early days yet and I'm still getting used to the game. If anyone wants a squad member on PS4 you can add me: Dalvado.

    Battlefield V

    It really is a shame as BFV is a blast to play when most things are going right. They just need(ed) to sort their content strategy out and it all seems a bit lost/half-arsed at the moment. What with them just adding limited period game modes that don't add anything to it. I'm surprised the microtransactions for cosmetics haven't appeared yet as I thought that was the model they were going to use to keep Tides of War going. I wouldn't have thought it would be caught up in the lootbox controversy as if they were straight up on what you were paying for it wouldn't be any worse than what other games do. Maybe as Moosey says the battle royale mode will be seen as a last chance to refresh interest in the game. I'm just not sure they'll get enough in for the EA top brass to be happy. I pre-ordered the digital standard edition of the game when PSN points were going cheap around Black Friday as I thought, "Fuck it. It wasn't much more than physical copies were going for at the time. I've played enough Battlefield over the years and I don't really see myself selling it as I didn't sell the others either. This is Battlefield, EA have learned their lesson from Battlefront 2 and it'll never drop in price so soon..."

    Battlefield V

    I've seen that being done but I still think it's a pain in the arse having to (sometimes temporarily) drop out of a squad to create a new one for that purpose.

    Battlefield V

    Which brings a point about how difficult it can be for larger groups of players to be on the same team. Especially when there's no Switch Team option - another one for that Excel spreadsheet...

    Microsoft Rewards

    I don't have an Xbox so don't use the app but have been collecting points via desktop and mobile.* Like everyone here I just thought the suggested searches for daily rewards were engineered to get people to test the search engine or search deeper. Ones like the 'Things to do in Paris' or 'Owen Wilson Films' today. You click on the top row and they give you points for each as it's sent as a new search. How can they penalise you for doing what they clearly want you to do? *To shamelessly get their raffle tickets for an Xbox One X

    What's the origin of inverted Y axis controls?

    I've got a strange one where anything with aiming I can't deal with inverted but for moving vehicles like planes, helicopters, boats, bikes I have to go with inverted. The funny thing is that logically, I've got the whole pulling up/pushing down etc. way of thought for inverted for some time now. Yet some part of my brain is hardwired another way for aiming. It might be that the first games aiming with an on screen cursor for me used a D-Pad not a stick. Maybe associating it with being more of a mouse cursor as I'd used a mouse too?

    Trials Rising

    Yeah. I hit the contract bug on the third stage. I'll delete the saves and start again offline but won't go as far as downloading the game again.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    I'm so very much looking forward to this after enjoying the first and that trailer was great in so many ways.

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    Yes, they added such a method with the recent firmware. Transfer Data from Another PS4

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    You need your new internal drive, a 1GB USB stick to save a firmware file to and another USB hard drive to backup your system to. Then swap the old internal drive for the new one and restore from the backup. It does take a while though so you may need to set several hours aside for it.

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    I've had a good first night with a squad of friends. I think we all thought it was more fun than some BF4 games we've had recently. I'm quite impressed with it so far. I'll definitely be carrying on with the campaign too. There's some much needed brutality and darkness to it so far. Not a bad effort at all, Dice.
