don’t get me started on how underbaked iconoclasts felt for something i was excited for since i was a teenager
Okay, I’m going to try this Apex Legends thing, having never played titanfall
Let us know if you need tips and tricks. Not that I’m any good but you know
This game has too many buttons to play on a keyboard wtf
lshift + lctrl for an important movement function? fuck
of course I can rebind them but to what
But I wanna get you started!
I remember I used to follow the dev back in the day and was genuinely interested in Iconoclasts, but really have no idea what to make of the finished product.
In what ways do you consider it underbaked? Narratively, mechanically?
every PC FPS defaults to crouch on lctrl
Apex at least has the decency to have two default binds for crouching (lctrl is toggle, c is hold)
Sure, but most PC FPSes don’t say “okay now press lshift+lctrl at the same time” as the second thing you do in the tutorial
Well that was cool, the first game I played everyone on my team left the instant the game started
do they say “press shift+insert to paste”
I don’t know, Half-Life gets pretty close to saying that and it’s twenty years old
Does crouching and sprinting do something in hl1? I had no idea
HL has the long jump, which is done much like it is in Mario 64, where you hit crouch and jump
gordon even says wahoo
What’s on space?
you also don’t get the HL1 long jump until near the end of the game it’s weird
Crouch (lctrl, pinky) and jump (space, thumb) are much, much, much easier to hit than crouch (lctrl, pinky) and sprint (lshift, pinky)
it’s not just for rings
or use the hold bind ( C ) for sliding
But run is a toggle; you don’t have to press them at the same time!
You can also bind the crouch hold (ctrl) to left alt and activate it with your thumb, if that helps
Warframe uses the same sprint-crouch combo as Apex and you to hit it way more often, constantly even
