Apex Legends’ first battle pass shows how badly it needs better cosmetics

The first Apex Legends battle pass went live today, kicking off the battle royale game’s first season—Wild Frontier. “Homie what @PlayApex.”Players on Reddit have likened the feature to the “battle pass equivalent of the Mozambique”—a reference to memes about Apex Legends’ worst gun.

What Google’s Stadia could mean for PC gaming

Below, you'll find our reactions to the Stadia announcement, as we discuss what it could mean for PC gaming as a whole. If it doesn't work perfectly for everyone, I don't think it could be called a success. Fraser: "For everyone" sounds nice, except I don't think Stadia really will be for everyone.
