We didn't have a Titanfall thread.



It's a first-person shooter focusing on mobility and mech-on-mech combat made by the team that made the original Modern Warfare/Modern Warfare 2.

At the time I made this thread there are lots of people streaming Titanfall on Twitch, here's one of them - http://www.twitch.tv/drift0r

I think the setting and aesthetics are great, which is why I hate that it's just an iteration of CoD.

It looks awesome visually and I'm sure the production values are high and it's well made, blah blah, but I've watched some footage of the game and it's alot of double jumping / parkouring / flying around shooting, which annoys the shit out of me in a shooter.  It reminds of Quake, and not in a good way.  L33tz0r dudez jumping all over rocketing shit wears on me.  I'm getting old.  sad

I know I am gonna hurt myself on this, with disappointment and all, but I literally can't wait.

I mean, come on, even if only the single player, it can't be bad, can't can't can't!

I don't think the game has single player.

edit: this video is informative. http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/unfinished-titanfall-02-11-2014/2300-8489/ . It showcases my biggest problem apart from being a CoD reskin: bots. Most of an average player's time is spent killing bots. I cannot understand why people find that kind of gameplay interesting. I mean come on, they don't even try to fight back. But it does seem that this is a large part of why the journos and youtubers are gushing: you get to pretend you're "dominating" by shooting helpless bots.

Ha, touche. But seriously speaking, this is the biggest AAA game right now. It's the CoD ideal of positive reinforcement no matter what the player does, no matter how stupid he is, amped up even higher. On top of being terrible game design, I feel this is just extremely manipulative.

I really fear the bot thing is a result of the MOBA craze. That is consistent with the 6vs6 max players in multiplayer. "Minions" is slowly replacing "bots", but the shit is the same. That's why in one of the best MOBAs out there, Smite, I prefer the arena mode. Less jungle, less minions, less PvE in a PvP game.

Also no single player, really? Daaamn..

This went from what? 16v16 to 6v6 so they could let everyone get a gold star by shooting bots and holding points till the magical timer dings. Pass.

And no schild, no loot in this one. I am pretty sure that is Destiny - out in Sept. But that is much more MMOish and more fantasy shooter.

If I sat down and decided to design a game that would be most offensive to my gaming sensibilities, I still would not come up with something as garbage as this.

I think I got the 16v16 from some fansite chatter, more hope than substance. It was tested @ teams of 12 and 8 though according to the wiki.

I don't know why people are comparing this to quake... it's not that fast at all, nowhere close. Basically same speed as battlefield but with more z-axis play, more infantry focused.

FTFY  why so serious?

Seriously, fuck this game. The mech gimmick is the only thing remotely interesting about this, completely killed by the idea that 6v6 is the largest map you can have - which means all the maps will be fucking COD level garbage grenade spam phone booths. Fuck this.

I dunno why some of you are so butthurt about this game. You sound like the fuckwits in WoW complaining about the fact that raids are so easy now and it was better in the old days of TBC. Like it's a bad thing that anyone can junp onto a game and enjoy themselves/feel good by dominating (poor widdle bots). Elitist cockhead bullshit. It's not for you, sure. You know what? It's not for me, either, but I don't feel a need to make myself seem like a h4rdc0r3 l33t player by shitting on those who will enjoy it. Schild actually has the right idea. ignore the fuck out of it.

Seems to me like there's some angry about it being EA/Origin, and then there's some angry because there are mobs in a PvP game. Jumping and all is part of these kind of games since Quake, Tribes and the likes, from rocket jumping to jetpack jumping, so I don't think the issues are in any way related to some idea of purity.

Looks like fun for a bit. I liked what I've seen and the Giant Bomb walk through verifies what I thought this'd be. I'll try it at the next PAX and if it's fun, I'll suck it up and patch Origin.

I don't get the hate for Origin though. It's not like I leave even Steam running all the time, so what's one more storefront to only launch and then quit once the game session ends? If it's fun, it's worth it.

I could understand the complaints that there are AI bots in an FPS if FPS's were an underrepresented genre, there weren't tons of other alternatives coming out, and people were just going to be stuck playing this to get their FPS fix, but that's not the case. Like Azazel, I'm not particularly interested in the game myself, but I'm not offended by the fact that they're trying to make something slightly different.  It does seem like people are trying to go out of their way to be dismissive of this game. First it was "it's CoD with Mechs" and now it's complaining about bots and the number of players.

Sure, not a problem. I'm talking about the palpable anger that some have towards it. Like it ran over their dog by allowing people to shoot bots and feel good about it. Plenty of things worth getting angry and/or offended over in the world. I'm just not entirely sure that Titanfall is one of them...

I would play the shit out of this game with a bunch of my friends, only if it was released by literally any other publisher. EA means I will not be buying it. Every other person in the clans I play with all say they are not interested purely because EA.

Origin is pretty much my major stumbling block here (I've never played CoD so I don't have any strong reaction one way or another to it, and what I've seen so far looks cool).  Yes, it's just "one more storefront" but that's like the third or fourth one I have JUST FOR GAMES ALONE.  I'm getting sick of every company requiring their own login and password for their own game/store/app/widget/whatever just because they can and fuck you if you want an alternative.  If it meant I got it cheaper or had access to special features or something, fine, but I'm not looking forward to having more hoops to jump through for a feature that doesn't add value to the product.

The fact that it's EA is a double "fuck you" given that they're already pretty much leading the pack in intrusive anti consumer bullshit in their games.  They've long since burned through all the good will I had for them.

It's not like I see it as some moral stand or anything, like people who DO use Origin are wrong somehow, I'm just personally sick of dealing with this kind of thing.

There's "Origin account required" and "Origin client required" games. Some EA-published games use Origin so they don't have to code their own secure account system. I have no idea which Titanfall would be, because they lost me at "no single player." (I've never, in 25 years as a gamer, seen a game that made me enjoy competition against strangers. Yes, yes, I'm a carebear. Whatevs.)

How much less objectionable that is is a matter of opinion.

Well the hate for this game is surprising awesome, for real

Personally I'm not particularly excited by this due to
1. Origin. I have steam client running 24/7...Origin? My gfs sim city addiction. I`ll forget the game exist long after anyone tells me its good.

2. Dear me those pretty colors. I have a low to midtier laptop bought for the specific purpose of playing 80% of the games on the market. Im gomna guess Ea is shooting past my lowly rig.

3. Its going on be sold at full price... nope. 60 dollars just for multiplayer better come with a blow job.

You don't have do that, you know?

This is a FPS game.  Pretty standard looking one at that.  This sort of game has never been received well here.

I've watched some streams.  They didn't really make want to jump up and preorder.  It was dudes shooting at each other.  Being in a mech didn't seem to change that equation much, just the height.   If I get a chance to play this, I'll give it a shot.  Otherwise, not going to bother.
