PewDiePie recommends Ghost of Tsushima over The Last of Us 2

“I don’t know how they made a game so pretty. I don’t know how they did it. It’s so good! It’s crazy how just a game looking nice makes you want to play it. Just graphically, it’s like ‘wow I love this, I want to be a part of this world,'” he said.

When a viewer asked him if he would recommend the samurai release over The Last of Us sequel, he replied, “There’s no doubt. This is a game you can have so much more fun with. The Last of Us was just dreary and annoying. Comparing it to this, my God, why was it so… Ugh. Looking back on it, ugh, it makes me angry, it makes me sad.”

The content creator loved the game so much, he said he plans to continue to play it off stream and complete it 100%. When asked what he would score it, he exclaimed, “It’s so fun. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a game like that. I loved it. I would probably give it a 8.9, very close to a 9!”

When a viewer joked that Ghost of Tsushima was an eight but still game of the year, PewDiePie agreed and said, “I could see that.” Despite his praise, the popular YouTuber said the game could have done some things better, but stated he was “excited” for a sequel.

While Pewds continued to to be critical of The Last of Us Part 2, he did reiterate that he still had fun playing parts of it. However, he stated that Sucker Punch had made a much more enjoyable game that he loved to get lost in. The 30-year-old also called the PS4 title’s ending “beautiful.”

After being promised a few months back, crossplay is finally coming to Apex Legends in beta form. Here’s everything you need to know about the new feature, including how it works, how to disable it, and more.

At one point, many people thought that playing an online game with your friends on another console was a pipe dream. Now, in 2020, thanks to a combination of modern technology and mega corporations deciding to play nicely with each other, crossplay is slowly but surely becoming the norm across many titles in the gaming industry.

One major title that didn’t have the feature for the longest time, though, was Apex Legends. Fortunately, in June 2020 during EA Play, the developers announced that this would be changing, and that crossplay would be coming to the battle royale game in the near future. Now, Electronic Arts and Respawn have released details about the feature. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

First, it’s only releasing as a beta, for the Aftermarket Collection event. This is so Respawn can text all the features before implementing it fully, along with the Steam and Switch release. For now, cross-play is only between PS4, Xbox One, and Origin.

How to add friends on other platforms

Finding people to play with on other platforms is relatively easy. All you have to do is open the friends menu, click the Find Friend option and search for their name.The game will automatically look for any player matching that name on any system.

Simply search your friends on all platforms to find them.

How to enable/disable crossplay

Crossplay is automatically enabled, so if you don’t have to do anything right off the bat if you want to play with people on other platforms. But what if you don’t want to participate in the beta? What if you didn’t originally but now you want to try it out?

The option to enable and disable crossplay is found in the settings menu. This creates the possibility of longer wait times, as you’re effectively restricting the pool of players that the game can search. Still, the option is there if you want it.

The ability to enable and disable crossplay will be in the settings menu, but it’s enabled by default.

Can PC players play with console players?

By default, PC players will only be matched with PC players in normal matchmaking, while console players will only be matched with console players.

That being said, consoles can still play with PC should they so desire it, but they have to be in a party together before they start matchmaking. After that, the game will include PC players in the pool to search from.

Given the fact that this is a beta, this can obviously change in time for the full release. However, this is currently how it’s set up.

Is cross-progression enabled for the game?

While this is something that’s being considered by Respawn, the feature is not enabled in Apex Legends currently, so if you want to play on another console, you won’t have any of your items that you previously unlocked.

Respawn say that cross-progression is a “valuable” feature, but will take about it during the Steam launch later this year.

All in all, this seems like a great beta and a chance to get feedback from the community. As previously mentioned, given the fact that this is a beta, things can obviously change and be tweaked but for right now, this is a good start.
