I'll keep playing, see if I can get better. I'm playing this on Xbox One, and maybe part of it is the lack of a mouse an keyboard. I recall that I played Bioshock Infinite on PC for my first playthrough, played on Hard and had no real issues. Then I decided to start another play through, but this time on the console. I was TERRIBLE. Maybe the real question is this:
Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in. I played my first few matches of Titanfall tonight. Great feeling game, everything seems to work right, etc. There's one problem that I always forget about, though, and this is a problem with every FPS I've played.
I suck at them. Not just terrible. Turrible. A detriment to whatever side I'm on. A feeder. A waste of a slot. I might as well be one of the AI guys, they probably have better kill numbers.
I don't know if I just need practice or someone to teach me or what, but I'm just plain bad. If I concentrate on keeping moving, I invariably get sniped or run right into someone. If I try to find a good spot to try to pick off people from afar, I end up with a broken neck. When I watch the kill cam, it looks like I just run right out in front of people.
Now, I've never stuck with one of these games very long, which is likely part of the problem. It's frustrating to play as poorly as I do. And I can't learn the maps if I don't stick with it. But it's embarrassing when that end-game screen comes up and I see my pathetic kill count.
I'm really tempted myself by the current offers. I could get a Titanfall for about $355 right now with the $450 sales price, a 10% off mover's coupon and a $50 reward cert. I'm sorely tempted, but I just don't know. I do already have a PS4 and Wii U. And my backlog is already massive.
What are some other exclusives soon to come to the Xbox One?
I'm a day one PS4 owner, and not disappointed. I knew what I was signing up for. :) I'm also keen on having both systems, to make sure I don't have to watch exclusives longingly from afar, like I had to do with Mass Effect and Gears as a PS4 devotee.
So now I'm due an anniversary present for myself ("from my wife," technically) and I'm sitting on $50 in reward points from BB and staring the $450 Xbox One bundle in the face.
I'm having a hard time resisting going back to D3 on the PC, and I've also held off trying it on my PS3. I just want to wait and dive deep on the PS4. But I just haven't heard anything concrete about a release.
I love my Wii U. Mario 3D World is crazy good, and I love that I was able to transfer all my Wii stuff to it. I'm also a big fan of the play it on the pad or on the TV flexibility. I can sit with my wife playing Mario while watching TV at the same time.
