Apex Legends Patch 1.1.1
Apex just received a much needed patch on April 16.
Players have been reporting disadvantages when using two of the larger characters, Gibraltar and Caustic. The major issue being that they are just plain old much larger targets, and therefore easier to hit, with no real advantage to their size. After analyzing their game data, and listening to tons of players complain for months, it seems developers have finally answered with a patch of improvements and adjustments.
EA hopes these improvements will encourage players to use Gibraltar and Caustic more often, making them more competitive against nimble characters like Wraith and Bangalore.
EA is addressing this concern and some other known UI glitches, as well as some weapon balancing problems, in the 1.1.1 Patch!
Caustic and Gibraltar | Apex Legends, EA.
Caustic and Gibraltar received a new passive perk called "Fortified", granting them 10% damage resistance!
Weapon Balancing: Improved lower body damage when using Sniper weapons, Reduced Sniper weapon sway, improved DMR buffs, reduced Spitfire damage, Reduced magazine size for Wingman, improved mag size and beam charge for Havoc.
More Battle pass XP opportunities planned for this season
Jump Ship speed increased by 50%
Bug fix: UI glitch with incorrect boost badge percentages shown.
Need more detail? Yeah, we thought so.

Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
This quirky throwback to old style gaming got me hooked pretty quickly. Even with it's simple play style the game offers a variety of challenges that'll keep you staring that the screen.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!

Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
