KFC Trolls Apex Legends


Fast food chicken franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken was trolling the monumental amount of Apex Legends content that has been hitting the market since the game launched. Or lack thereof.

I know it supposedly still has a good player base and that the game plays really well, but it's pretty amazing to see how far out of the public conversation Apex fell.

Sorry for asking a potentially dumb question, but... kfcgaming can't possibly have anything to do with the fast-food chain, can it?

I tried this game. I downloaded it, booted it up, and looked at all the character options. And they were all, in their own special way, so freaking ugly that I quit to desktop and never went back.

Ha, the game does have some boringly-ugly characters. But, it's all about the gameplay. TBH though, I load it less often lately. It's just not as easy to push out content on Source engine games compared to.... anything else.

I'm having a LOT of fun with Rage 2 atm. The world might be lifeless, but the gameplay feels next-gen. The shooting is amazing.

They've said that they're not going to run their developers into the ground trying to rush things out, which I can respect.

I can definitely respect that too. Not sure it's good for immediate business but I guess I can respect them even more because of that.

Yeah I felt the same way. The characters were completely unappealing to me, which is kind of a weakness in a character based shooter.

EA has yet to figure out that Fortnite's success has fuck all to do with gameplay.

Believe it or not (I certainly didn't at first), this is actually an official thing from KFC.

Are they even "Kentucky Fried Chicken" any more? I know they officially changed their name to KFC a long time ago, apparently to diversify their menu offerings a bit. Yeah, their modern ads are really hit or miss, but at least they're trying to mix it up. Props for trying.

Nope, they're actually owned by Pepsi Co under a shell brand, along with Taco Bell and Pizza Hut.

It has everything to do with following the herd of mindless sheep because that's what streamers decided was popular?

I'm enjoying Rage 2 also for the same reasons. The story/characters/voice acting are all pretty bad but the gunplay and sound effects are so meaty. When I hit that Overdrive and see that red screen..just like Brick from Borderlands would say ITS TIME TO TASTE THE RED MIST! Gameplay is great!
