I would be all for it, but if this thread is any indication it's a mixed crowed of yea or nay.
So do it, anyway.
Man, the traversing in this game is so damn good. How effortless it is to wallrun, climb and jump is pretty satisfying and the shooting feels good, for the most part.
There are some problems that I have with it, though. The AI being one of the most disappointing. I've seen some people try to excuse it as just something to kind of farm, but if you're putting AI in a competitive online shooter, I'd highly prefer them to be more than competent. Good AI in single player is important, right? Good AI in player vs player multiplayer should be a must, in my mind. I don't necessarily want them to be super difficult, but the state that they are in currently is kind of ridiculous considering they're going up against players.
The graphics are more bland and aliased then I anticipated and some of the textures are kind of rough for an early "next gen" game. But it still manages to look nice, overall. The designs of the mechs and soldiers (the weapons, too) are pretty cool.
Like people have said, this is definitely Call of Duty with mechs and I'm not sure I like that. For lots of people that's more than fine, but I was looking for something with it's own identity, I guess. I could see the title of this game being, "Call of Duty: Titanfall" and it wouldn't seem out of place one bit. And the more I ponder it, the less appealing the game is for me. I'm just getting tired of this formula and I wish I could have a Titanfall with its own unique blend on shooting and on various nuances.
I'm liking what I'm playing, but I get the sense it's one of those games that's a baseline for the series down the road and it doesn't have that much going for it in terms of content. I feel like the second one has potential to be amazing.
So, yeah, It's fun, but seems like something I'd enjoy for a week before getting bored of it. The hype now looks a little weird after playing it.
After buying Battlefield 4 immediately after its release, I'm not jumping the gun with EA games, anymore. I plan on getting Titanfall for the PC (assuming I enjoy what I play in the beta), but I'll wait to see how the infrastructure and the game is for a week or so before I grab it.
Danny O'Dwyer would be my only choice, but we know that won't happen.
From skimming through this thread it seems a few people don't notice the lack of enthusiasm and stress lately from the guys, but it shows and its obvious. Besides Engineers and whatnot to handle backend nonsense I think they do need an editor to help reinvigorate them a bit and perhaps do some of the hosting. I love Jeff and he's been great on the Bombcast, but his style doesn't translate well to live streams like Unprofessional Fridays. Vinny's better in that area, but I guess he has his hands full with everything else.
Anyway, the next several months should be interesting. It's slowly starting to stagnate.
This makes me so angry that my face is getting hot! I need an ice cold Diet Pepsi™ to take the edge off... Man.... That tastes just like regular Pepsi™ and it has zero calories!
No one cares about you and your Pepsi. Cool cats drink Coca-Cola™, the World's best carbonated soft drink. Coca-Cola™, a real drink with real taste!
Yes. I like this real talk. You obviously get it. Sometimes after a long day of work, I just need that crisp, refreshing flavor of an ice cold Coca-Cola™. When I get home, I ease onto my couch, turn on my Xbox One™ video game console and play Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts™. Enjoy gaming. Enjoy life. Enjoy Coca-Cola™.
Both taste the same.
It's a good idea, but the name is pretty dry.
I don't suppose you considered the title Work In Progress? That sounds more like a Giant Bomb feature to me.
Agreed. Good idea, but the name needs work. Much too unimaginative and stale. Doesn't fit Giant Bomb to me.
