Yoshi doesn't play around.

@amyggen: Generally they take you out back and beat the shit out of you.

Oh, and I may or may not have gotten an email similar to ones described earlier in this thread. :) Now excuse me, some guys are here to beat the shit out of me.

I look like an idiot the way I spray gunfire with a controller. I think I do just need practice.

@gaspower No, I have not. I might need to try it out sometime.

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:

How does anyone play FPS with a controller? :)

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.

So who else is terrible at competitive FPS games?

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 don't know if I can resist.

Anyone else staring down that barrel?

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.

If you ever enjoyed collecting action figures, I think it's a great way to do it. Playing with my toys in a video game is WAY better than moving the arms around my GI Joes and pretending. :)

I do think my opinion is flavored a lot by the fact that I have young kids.

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.
