  1. I think I'd done the ones near me and there were no vehicles near. This was 30 minutes into the game. What determines where you spawn if you die in Plunder? Sometimes you spawn near where you died. Sometimes you spawn somewhere else.
  2. I had a plunder game where it dragged on for ages. It doesn't have a player count so you can't see how many are left. I'm pretty sure most of the lobby left because by the end I was just solo wandering around an empty map with nothing to do.
  3. This guy makes good settings videos Though it does highlight the advantages of playing on PC. He’s a controller player saying he’s choosing to play on pc to give him an advantage with 144fps and 94 fov. I don’t blame him and I’d do the same if I had a decent pc...But at least give console players the option of higher fov...
  4. Knights vs Ninjas with me as knight and 10 and 8 year old daughters are ninjas is amazing. 10 year old plays super aggressive, 8 year old is sneaky. It’s a great combo.
  5. While not relevant to this game, Apex doesn't have cross play but let's PC players use m&k or pads. Surprisingly, there are pro level players who use controllers... It's completely off topic, but this is a great clip of a long time Halo pro in a top level ranked game: https://clips.twitch.tv/TentativeAmericanAubergineCopyThis
  6. I'm hardly likely to be looking for excuses in a game mode I've not played yet. Anyway, if you can't notice the difference in FOV between 65 and 80, there's not much point in debating the advantages of it with you. All I want is a level playing field. That's hardly too much to ask.
  7. PC default FOV for MW is 80, 65 on console. So even not upping it your PC has a large advantage.
  8. And it doesn't have a FOV slider on PC... (but it's FOV is much larger on console and PC by default than CODs)
  9. I was using Apex to show that raising FOV need not kill rate rate on console. And anyway, Dead Silence on console MW noticeably ups FOV without seeming to hit performance. I'd take the higher Dead Silence FOV all the time given the choice. Wouldn't everyone? In any case, my original point was that cross play will put low FOV PS4 players against PC players who can up their FOV to 100+ (assuming they've got a reasonable PC and/or don't mind lowering visual settings to compensate). This gives a huge advantage to the PC player. PC players can also opt to lower visual quality to make players easier to see etc, again giving an advantage. If the servers are going to place me in matches with PC players, it's only fair that I have access to the same options. Close quarter battles between someone on 100 FOV and someone on 65 FOV aren't a fair fight...
  10. Tests on Apex (default console FOV 70, default PC FOV 90) showed that playing at 90 FOV on a base PS4 didn't affect frame rate significantly, and that playing at 110 FOV (Apex's max) didn't affect frame rate significantly. I play Apex at 100 FOV on a PS4 Pro and the frame rate is stable 60 fps. No streamer players console Apex at anything less than 100, and lots use 110. All PC streamers use 100+. And Dead Silence increases FOV (a bit, but it's clearly noticeable) on console in Modern Warfare and that doesn't kill the game. https://www.reddit.com/r/modernwarfare/comments/dm2u3u/console_will_not_have_fov_settings_but_using_dead/
  11. Looks good. I'll DLfor PS4 for sure. But cross play with PC players (I assume only controller ones?) seems a little unfair if PC can have a higher FOV and PS4 can't.
  12. Buy it! It’s really easy to make Towerfall accessible for gaming noobs as it has a wealth of handicapping options. I can play a pretty fair game with my 10 and 8 year old daughters. Also even at full price I’d say Towerfall is worth it for its single player content. £4 is a steal for a game this good.
  13. I fucking loved Bip...
  14. Shit! I’ve bugged Mr Spragg to port that on Twitter in the past! I think lots of people have. He posted here as @Adman back when it first came out.
  15. Looks good from a quick video I just watched. I'll add to my watch list. If you like Speed Runners, try Runbow. - I've played it lots, and looks like it is very similar to Speed Runners. Runbow is on sale for £2.39 until 1 Mar, and supports up to 8 players. https://www.dekudeals.com/items/runbow
  16. It’s great 4p as well. Chilled and super easy to play.
  17. I've not played enough to notice the sentinel much. How does it change things?
  18. 2 player co op games that are easy to pick up for the other half who doesn't really do games but has shown an interest recently. Ideally on the Switch Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (up to 4p, very chilled on easier settings) Super One More Jump (coop game about timing - up to 4p) Towerfall (yes it really shines as up to a 6p competive game, but the coop is good too) New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (up to 4p, one player can play the invulnerable to enemies Nabbit - great for my youngest) Mario Odyssey (2p coop that's great for your other half to play) Kirby Star Allies (very simple easy platformer - nice to breeze through in coop) And more: Competitive games Astro Bears (simple, but great) Runbow (up to 8p on one Switch - running and jumping game) Astro Duel Deluxe (like 4p Asteroids) Crawl Party Golf Fantasy Strike (fighting game that's easy to pick up) Also, as a random aside I've got some love for Nine Parchments. It's not the best made game ever, but it's sort of like Diablo with up to 4p. It's a great game for 4 mates to chill, talk and do spells on a big screen. It's regularly on sale (like now) for around a fiver.
  19. Not much chat about Apex. I’m loving it right now. Anyone want to squad up?

    They should teach Celeste in schools
  21. So I download the free Colouring book, then I can download the 1st game on the list on the 10th, and then the next on the 16th etc?
  22. Yeah, I have it and think it's pretty good. It has a small but active community, and I've never found it hard to find a game. There's a very active discord too. On Switch, it is cross play with Steam, and cross play with PS4 is coming soon.
  23. Lots of good stuff in the sale, and more stuff seems to be added since I last looked. Fantasy Strike is £19, which I think is a bargain
  24. Cheers. Another kind soul helped with my Machamp. Happy to help you or any others. Just PM my your number and we can arrange via WhatsApp.
  25. Yeah it’s easy. I think it is pretty clearly balanced for kids, rather than experienced gamers. But I’m fine with that. My 10-year-old daughter has been looking forward to play it for about a year, and she’s loving it. She’s played Yellow, Crystal and Ruby, and found them all doable but tough. She’s finding this similar. She’s playing how she wants to rather than the “best” way. So far she’s died 3 times on the 2nd gym (water) because she’s made a what she regards to be a principled choice to play all the gyms only with her fire starter...
