Hey everyone

So a little while ago I [posted about an idea I had for a podcast](https://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion-30/idea-for-a-monthly-get-together-a-bit-like-a-book--1860587/) where each month we pick a game and then play it. For month 1 we chose Hyper Light Drifter. It’s been amazing, and a tiny crew of us got together to really dig into this game which I should not have overlooked. [The edit is coming together](https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EYS9UaDI7pSbWT2NynMMcRQnn2PMSjdZ/view?usp=drivesdk) but in the meantime, with February in the bag, it’s time to turn our attention to the game for next month.

I got lots of feedback on the game choice month one. I thought that choosing something older, so cheaper, and cross-platform was a sure-fire-winner. I was partly right :) Cross-platform is good but HLD was a bit too old and out there so for month two we will cleanse our pallets with something as far removed as possible from a branching RPG pixel adventure featuring a future ninja.

So for March, we’re going to play *Apex Legends*. The free game of the moment that it feels like everyone is talking about. It looks amazing and I can’t wait to get stuck in.

If you’d like to get involved you can join us on our discord on http://www.tinyurl.com/thismonthits

I’m planning on posting podcast episodes at the end of every month so if you’d like to tell me what you thought of HLD let me know, I can probably still fit you in. Thanks for your support, I look forward to seeing you in the arena!

@iainfarrell: Great idea. But APEX legends is a bit of a weird choice, as kind of everyone is talking about/playing it at the moment.

Hi @samfo, last month the feedback was that I’d picked something old and niche, this month because I’d like as many people to take part as possible, Apex seemed like a good choice. The barrier to entry is low and it’s exciting playing when everyone else is playing too. Because the podcast is monthly we’ll probably still be talking about it when other podcasts have moved on. It’s an experiment, come and join in :) the discord is on tinyurl.com/thismonthits and if you’d be up for being interviewed about Apex, DM me.
