don’t get me started on how underbaked iconoclasts felt for something i was excited for since i was a teenager


#2149

Okay, I’m going to try this Apex Legends thing, having never played titanfall


#2150

Godspeed

Let us know if you need tips and tricks. Not that I’m any good but you know


#2151

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


#2152

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?


#2153

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)


#2154

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


#2155

Well that was cool, the first game I played everyone on my team left the instant the game started


#2156

do they say “press shift+insert to paste”


#2157

I don’t know, Half-Life gets pretty close to saying that and it’s twenty years old


#2158

Does crouching and sprinting do something in hl1? I had no idea


#2159

HL has the long jump, which is done much like it is in Mario 64, where you hit crouch and jump


#2160

gordon even says wahoo


#2161

What’s on space?


#2162

you also don’t get the HL1 long jump until near the end of the game it’s weird


#2163

sigh, ok


#2164

Crouch (lctrl, pinky) and jump (space, thumb) are much, much, much easier to hit than crouch (lctrl, pinky) and sprint (lshift, pinky)


#2165

ring finger

it’s not just for rings

or use the hold bind ( C ) for sliding


#2166

But run is a toggle; you don’t have to press them at the same time!


#2167

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
