Apocalypse Now - 5/5

First time watching it. Blown away.

I use Turtle Beach EarForce PX4 for my PS4. It's decent, but it isn't very compatible with the system. The mute mic button and chat volume control buttons do not work with the PS4, meaning I have to unplug my chat cable if I want to silence my mic and I have to adjust the party volume by going through some menus on the system. It's a total pain. The headset is wireless, which is a step up from the wired Turtle Beach headset I was using a few years ago, but at least on that older set I could independently adjust game and party chat volumes. No dice here. The PX4 has two buttons for tone and blast limiter, but there only seems to be one tone that sounds good.

Overall, the headset kinda sucks, but I got it for fairly cheap (~$98 I think). Games and movies sound fine, but the incompatibility with the PS4 is real annoying.

They destroyed his character by having him talk as often as he does. It drove me absolutely insane. I encountered a bug at one point where he would talk about a subject and halfway through his monologue he would start over at the beginning of the same monologue, and repeat infinitely. Only stopped when I restarted the game. It sucks because I liked hearing the songs on that station, but he would only play them for maybe 15 seconds before talking again.

5 minutes? More like every 10 seconds. You can crawl from grass at 90% to a patch of dirt and be at 40% or lower camo, which is enough for guards to easily spot you. I can see Drew getting super frustrated with it. I'm hoping he just whips out the shotgun and blazes through some of those sections.

It's not that bad. You're rarely in a situation where you'll crawl into a different piece of the terrain and have to immediately change camo because you're about to be spotted. Most areas can be finished using a specific kind of camo best suited for it, and you just have to stick to the terrain that matches you best.

I went with Iron Bull, Dorian, and Sera for most of the game. Their banter is great since they all come from very different backgrounds.

That boss fight isn't that good. Each time I've done it his AI has been so bad that I've been able to walk up behind him and shoot him in the back, after which he runs maybe 20 feet away and turns around so I can shoot him in the back again. It's really stupid!

I played on Hard and I'm quite glad I did. It's a decent challenge, really tough for the first ~10 levels especially. Once you start getting above that threshold most encounters won't be very challenging. I didn't have to pause to issue commands for the last boss fight, for example.

Can't wait for this one. Hopefully they watch the Secret Theater cutscenes after finishing the game, because there is some amazing stuff in there.

Thank you so much for these! You do phenomenal work.

100% yes. It is a main game in the series even if it isn't a numbered entry. The story is crucial.
