All these video games aren't going to play themselves.
Nice review. Only one shotgun? So is there only one SMG and assault rifle too? From the beta it seemed like the selection of weapons and weapon customization was lacking. Not that Titanfall is about nitpicking over your weapon loadout as much as Call of Duty and Battlefield, but it would be nice to have a couple additional choices.
Good on them for recognizing the flaws in the game, and having the guts to delay it to work the issues out. As disappointing as delays are, they are not as disappointing as playing a game that clearly feels rushed out the door.
Season pass with map packs huh? They’re trying really hard to differentiate themselves from Call of Duty I see.
Thanks for Uncharted! UC2 will be in my top 10 for a long time to come.
The EXP boost is only temporary and expires when the expansion comes out. It’s simple really: they just want to attract people back to the game now that the 2.0.1 patch is out and contains the loot 2.0 as well as the changes to the paragon system.
It’s had its rough patches but I gotta say I’ve mostly enjoyed the BF4 alpha these last few months and I eagerly await the official release.
Huh. I guess they don’t want to sell copies of Bayonetta 2. The only people who will play this is the small following of people who loved the first one and bought a WiiU.
The rest will ignore it because it doesn’t have Mario, Donkey Kong or Zelda in the title.
Interesting. I really enjoyed Singularity and I think it’s an underrated shooter.
How about we have protagonists whose sexual orientation isn’t mentioned because it doesn’t matter?
Disappointing? They’re reviewing about as well as I thought they would.
I mean…Castlevania, Final Fantasy XIII blah blah and Thief? Did we really expect greatness?
Luckily once I get my free boost I’ll have every class of character max level, with the exception of my low level warlock bank alt.
$60 is a lot for the service I think. But hordes (no pun intended) of people will buy it, and some of them more than once. So …..that’s a lot of money for Blizzard.
I still think every account should have to “earn” the right to boost by leveling up traditionally at least once.
This actually looks really fun, and a nice change up from the standard military shooter.
Also, I would like to remind people that the first LotS was highly divisive and to read other reviews.
Goddammit does every game need stealth sequences now?!
I guess I’ll just replay the original LoTS again.
They just can’t seem to achieve greatness with Killzone. I’m eager to see what else they can do.
WW2 setting would be interesting so I’m disappointed it’s off the table. It would have to be something other than the obvious American male GI versus super secret group of Nazi Templars.
Like, I dunno, a female protagonist member of the French Resistance. I don’t think the series is going to do anything that recent any time soon. I don’t think they had huge piles of hay at the base of every tall building in Paris.
I’m starting to wonder if “climb huge vertical structure and then jump down after you sync the world” even needs to be a staple of AC anymore?
I sure do like doing that though and would hate to see it go away.
Those settings sound cool, but you wouldn’t have any tall buildings to climb. Plus it’s hard to leap off the top of a structure when it’s shaped like a pyramid or a pagoda. :P
Just another game rushed out the door, filled to the brim with stupid bugs.
I had a lot of fun in about the 10 hours of the beta I played, but I can see it getting really old around the 20 hour mark.
How many maps are in the final game, as well as how many weapons there are and how deep the weapon modding goes, will dictate whether I preorder or not. So far they have kept that all a secret, which seems sketchy. If it only ships with 6-8 maps I don’t feel like that’s enough.
Also I feel like they purposefully only put in 3 mechs only so they can put in more in the sequel just for the sake of making it a talking point for the sequel.
That is actually pretty cool.
Great article. I’d really like to get one of those stand-up desks. I exercise regularly but it wouldn’t hurt to alternate between standing and sitting during those long gaming marathons.
Also, I bet 99% of the people wringing their hands in here aren’t even remotely interested in this game, and have no intention of playing it.
And it’ll probably be a shit game.
Fun beta. Capped out (level 14) in about 4 hours, which is about as many hours of Titanfall that I’ll ever need to play.
360 and XB1 versions are the same resolution? :-\
I hope they don’t abandon Borderlands like they abandoned Brothers in Arms…
Gross..I can already see the Smart Pistol map campers. The burn cards sound interesting but are basically the perk system from recent CoD titles. And then there’s the inevitable stability and connectivity issues that will plague the first day/week/month/quarter of an EA published multiplayer game.
Still though, I’d like to give the beta a try and see if it changes my mind. I want to like Titanfall but I’m also a bitter ex CoD fanboy who has been burned one too many time with shoddy EA games.
