I started playing this last week after playing 13 for a second time a month ago so I could play this and Lightning Returns. I'm finding it hard to keep motivated to play this. It feels like a giant side quest.

I like it a lot. I'm playing on PC with a controller (My old PC can surprisingly play it on high).
I like the feel of the pilots. The parkour, the shooing it all feels great. The drones...are really dumb and they just kind of get in the way. I'm not really into that. They are 1 shot kills and more often than not, I turn a corner and blast 3 of them that are just standing there doing nothing. Titan's feel fun to use. Sometimes it's a bit like going back and forth with tanks, but I got into a few amazing situations. I run up to 2 titans, started punching them, ejected, my nuke went off killing both titans, then I shot one pilot in the air...very rewarding.
My friend was talking about how the titans not being able to jump kind of make them useless. I agree a bit. I think they did this because they want you to get out of your titan, but it on guard mode, and wreck some havoc yourself. I do wish it felt a little more like battlefield. I think chaos with mech's would have been more rewarding.
I'll continue to play the beta, I like it. I'm glad I tested it out on PC first though. I was ready to go all in with an Xbox One for this game. I now know I can get a PS4 and play this on PC, or 360, depending on how that turns out.
Great article, Patrick! I still haven't beaten Dark Souls, but I will say it was pretty difficult in the beginning not knowing where to go or what lies ahead. I went back and started a new game a few months ago on the PC and blasted through most of the areas (and then went back and played some more of my original game). The game is very different when you know what to do and where to get items.
It's weird how the coverage here has got me back into it. It took another break from Dark Souls and went and played some Demon's after watching Brad. I did the same thing since I never beat that game either, and started a new character. 6 Hours in compared to my 30 on my first game, and 10 levels lower and I'm stronger and have progressed almost as far. When people say these are some of the hardest games, they just have never played them or figured them out.
Just took me a month and a half to get through Tomb Raider. I think I'm going to sell all my games, I'll never play all of them. I also spend hours a day on here haha.
