Seemingly out of nowhere, the makers of the Titanfall series surprised the world with Apex Legends. No, this is not the next real entry in the Titanfall series. Instead, this is a standalone battle royale game in the vein of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
My initial reaction before playing the game was to groan at the notion of Respawn Entertainment putting the Titanfall series on hold to chase the trends. While this statement may be true, it doesn’t mean that Apex Legends can’t be a quality title in its own right. Based on my limited time with the game thus far, it may be too soon to brush this off as money grab.
When Medal of Honor was at its peak, Jason West and Vince Zampella defected from that franchise to create Call of Duty. Clearly, this was a gamble that paid off, as their franchise continues to be the biggest cash cow in console gaming year-after-year. Years later, they would once again leave a great thing behind in search of making something even better. The end product of their latest move is Titanfall. Exclusive to Microsoft platforms, this first-person shooter states its case for being the next big thing.
Lots of things get shot at in my time with Respawn Entertainment’s futuristic shooter. I try my best to discuss a bunch of different things related to the game, but I get caught up in the action pretty quickly. Also, whenever you’re making a let’s play video on the Xbox One, never say Xbox One because your system might think you’re talking to it!

Besides the handful of games I got to play at Fan Expo 2013, I saw a lot of other titles on current and next gen platforms. Some of these were live demos that us common folk were playing, while others were part of a sizzle reel. I didn’t get to experience enough of them to formalize a post, though I’ll throw in a quick word based on what I saw. Enjoy!
