  1. I don't mind Ben and the voicemails, one of his Lou Bega jokes this week made me actually laugh out loud. I'd take a Ben over a Jason any day of the week, he contributes barely anything.

     

    Jan though, he's the best thing about the Bombcast these days.

    The thing is, relatively successful is great when you're not being published by EA. But EA don't want the third most popular BR game, especially when it was, however briefly, top when it launched. If this was a more patient publisher then I'm sure it would be fine, but EA are constantly looking for more victims for the trench. As Jim Sterling often says, they're not here to earn some money, they want to earn all the money that anyone could possibly make from this type of venture. This is being compared to Fifa Ultimate team and whatever else brings them in the really big money, and given that the community around it doesn't seem to be growing or buying a lot of stuff it's not going to look good in comparison.

     

    This was two months in: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-24-apex-legends-revenue-down-74-per-cent-since-launch

     

    It's been three months since then, and EA haven't been publishing any figures.

     

    They seemed happy with it in the last earning call. Not fornite levels but its doing well.

    For some reason Symmetra isn't as fun. Maybe part of the enjoyment I got was from driving both teams fucking insane. She's still easy to murder things with, but she's so vulnerable in places she wasn't before. No more saving an entire team from a D.va bomb with a top of E :(

     

    I'm finding her new kit a lot more fun and a lot more powerful. Teleport behind the enemy team, throw up your sentries and go to town.

     

    The new routes and being able to get up high with any hero is a game changer, there's so much you can do with the new tele.

    Random, niche Q: has anyone played their Switch on a long haul flight, and if you had a power socket available, was it sufficient to charge the Switch? Got two 15 hour flights coming up and wondering if it’s worth packing...

     

    Really depends how long you'd expect to play it, best pick up a usb battery pack if you expect to play it longer than 3 hours.

     

    I've got one of these but its probably a bit overkill.

    The penny also finally dropped that it's going to take me longer to actually save for anything now, because the lack of dupes means my gold reserves (which aren't theoretically too far from me affording that Soldier skin) are going up very, very slowly. In one sense the change to drops helps fill out the collection with the low-level stuff, but is also going to increase the reliance on luck when it comes to getting anything better.

     

    I'm sure I read that the amount of gold you accrue over time should be about the same before they improved the dupes. They've probably just swung it so you get a credit drop rather than a dupe.

    I've noticed the video menu now has a Continue Watching button. That's handy.

     

    Now they just need a 'Watched' label so I don't have to remember which UPF etc I've already seen.

     

    They kinda do, theres a red bar under the thumbnail which shows how much you've watched of the video.

  7. Rather than write paper notes I've been taking share button screenshots and switching between game and Capture Gallery by double tapping the ps button.

    I've been taking a photo of the screen, then using markup on iOS to do little doodles on it.
