    MR. TORGUE APPROVES OF THIS MESSAGE!!! BECAUSE REASONS!!!

    [–] This is your apex champion... yedi001 1 points ago in apexlegends

    I did. I just don't care about YouTube/twitch/instagram/whatever culture enough to know who any of them are.

    I'm sure everyone has worked with someone who you know blows everything out of proportion. I have one coworker who literally cries because, after she repeatedly went out of her way to aggravate our boss for months on end(intentionally doing things to sandbag him, spreading rumors and degrading stuff amongst staff, etc), there was repercussions for her actions and claimed he was unfairly targeting her.

    She cried harassment and all manner of abuse when she literally did everything within her power to poke the bear in hopes of garnering a response. Like, yeah, no shit you're the only one being targeted, no one else was actively breaking policies for their own amusement... Our boss is 100% a hardass for sure, but he's a consistent, fair hardass.

    That said, you should treat employee abuse claims with respect, you just need to make sure there's overhead and fact checking, because humans have a very big habit of being lying and unreasonable sacks of shit, regardless of position.

    [–] Check out my new tracker guys! yedi001 0 points ago in apexlegends

    All of my crashes have involved:

    Top three. Sliding. Prowler(w/select fire iirc). Opening my inventory. Playing Gibraltar.

    Boom, PS4 crashed. I'm legit scared to open my inventory in late game :/

    Casutics "inert compound" kill line is by and large my new favorite insult in a FPS, bar none. That shit's murder by words.

    Almost everyone borders on hardline "edgelord" cheese or overbearing accents. Caustic and Mirage are standouts for me, and Pathfinder started off grating but has since grown on me. I'd probably be fine with Gibraltar if it didnt sound like every line where he talks then laughs sounds like each part was recorded separately then stappled together after the fact.

    Me too... I mean, I've heard him in other roles so I assumed him sounding familiar immediately equated to "It's gotta be North". Now that I know why he sounds familiar(I put a lot of hours into Dying Light) I feel pretty dumb for not putting 1 and 1 together sooner.

    It was an embarrassing Google search...

    [–] How to Defeat/Exploit Caustic's Traps yedi001 10 points ago in apexlegends

    Once you get the hang of his grapple, it's amazing. I was dead set on maining Caustic, but working on pathfinder for the trophies on Playstation4 and derping around with his zipline had me hooked. Like wow. Once you learn the timing of your jump, you're level of mobility is pure madness.

    [–] Down But Not Out. Self Rez Clutch yedi001 0 points ago in apexlegends

    Lost a match of attrition today to a gold backpack. Literally whole map was storm, and the backpack guy could heal through the damage. We couldn't find his camping ass in time and died to the crazy storm damage.

    Literally the shittiest 2nd place I've ever had. When I get the backpack I go full aggression, but this guy just ran away and chewed med packs like candy to win.

    [–] Violent video game engagement is not associated with adolescents' aggressive behaviour: evidence from a registered report yedi001 6 points ago in Games

    Kinda sad though that we live in a world that, even when repeatedly confirmed, some science is still cast aside in favor of sensationalism. Like, vaccines are proven effective and safe, but for some reason some people still cast aside the dozens of studies in favor of 'I read on the internet once...' conspiracy theories and lies...

    Gaming(and comics, and music, and Dungeons and Dragons) being wrongly targeted for behavioral deviance will continue, probably forever, because we humans don't take blame very well and want a quick and easy out when broken people do broken things. No amount of science is ever going to stop this, but it definitely makes me feel better that when they do try to weasel out of the consequences for their actions, the science will be mounted against them as opposed to a couple of papers that could be easily refuted or dodged.

    Shame some people take 'mountain of evidence' as 'burying the ugly truth' and only acts to strengthen their wrongly placed convictions...

    [–] Activision-Blizzard Begins Massive Layoffs yedi001 1 points ago in Games

    No it's not. The CoD fans are loyal to a fault. Apex and fortnite both being free sets them well apart. Also, something something "I don't want epic launcher" something something "only 10 year olds play fortnite"...

    If Titanfall 2 being fucking amazing couldn't make a dent in the CoD fanbase, a free-to-play Titanfall lite BR isn't going to make anyone at Craptivision lose any sleep.

    And that's coming from someone who fucking loves AL and has been consuming it like cocaine. Everyone on my friend list who played CoD before AL launched are STILL playing CoD despite the whirlwind wildfire that is Apex Legends.

    At this point, if I were them, I'd admit I've been utterly outplayed and accept my fate. Dude deserves his 3 kills.

    [–] The gas mines have hitboxes. yedi001 5 points ago in HitBoxPorn

    You(and your team) can't be hurt by your gas canisters. In addition to damage and obscuring enemy vision, Caustic gets a bonus where he sees enemies in his gas. It's pretty nifty, and most people don't know what to do about him yet as hes one of the 2 characters you need to unlock.

    [–] What is your theoretical ideal controller? yedi001 -3 points ago in Games

    The shitty bumper buttons were why I jumped off the Xbox bus to the PS4 this console generation. Hitting them repeatedly caused my hands to cramp at demo stations, and there were zero exclusives I wanted to play so it was an easy jump. My roommates stuck with the Xbox One and every time I tried to use it it was just uncomfortable to play. It's literally the PS3 controller all over again. They had near perfection on their hands and they messed it up with dumb choices.

    That said, switching out my classic PS4 controller for a Hori brand PS4 controller that utilizes the 360 controller setup was the best $80 I've spent on a controller. That shit is majestic to use.

    [–] Apex Legends - Review Thread yedi001 2 points ago in Games

    I learned a lot just watching my teammates when I inevitably died. Seeing what they picked up, what kind of RoF certain guns have, what kind of kickback to expect when firing... I picked up some nifty info and after my teammates dragged me kicking and screaming through the gates of hell, I had a much better grip on things and ended up winning in the next 2 rounds.

    It takes investment, but man does learning this game feel rewarding.

    [–] Apex Legends - Review Thread yedi001 4 points ago in Games

    I've seen Caustic dismantle people. I've watched him blow open doors and chuck his ult into a building to wreck people's day, and proper trap placement can turn tides way more than, say, wraiths voidwalk. Speaking of which, voidwalking feels like it lasts a second or so less than it should. Probably just me, though.

    Zipline is amazing for movement. Getting to otherwise unobtainable high ground and cover is great for ambushes and surprise flank attacks on campers who thought they had all their entrances covered.

    Having lifeline with you is also awesome. Healing the whole team following a big firefight is a boon, saving your healing items for clutch moments instead of chugging through them to heal up minor knicks and cuts.. Also supply drop is the bees knees.

    Bloodhound needs a touch up in power. I don't feel his ult is nearly as strong as everyone elses, though his scanning is awesome to have on a team to avoid ambushes, and the ping system negates the whole "need mic" argument almost entirely. Ping. For the love of Gog, ping things. My first win I was paired with a Spanish guy and a person with no mic. Pinging and commands was our only form of communication because I no comprehende espanol.

    Gibraltar, Mirage and Bangalore certainly feel a little stronger than the rest(I've been bamboozled a few times), with lifeline being just behind them, but overall the balance is pretty solid. Good play wont necessarily trivialize a rolling thunder/bubble shield/mortar strike, but it definitely isn't a free win over a team without those abilities at their disposal.
