Back from another day at the wonderful world of Gamescom, or as other people there called it, LinesCom. I spent a grand total of 8 hours in line today, was crazy BUT I got to see most of what I wanted. Those games being WatchDogs, Killzone Shadow Fall, Infamous Second Son and of course Titanfall.
I'm going to be honest, if it wasn't for Titanfall, my day would have been pretty lame. Killzone looked great but it was non-playable, so was Killzone. The guy playing the demo for us was terrible at Killzone (Infamous guy was good). It was pretty much the demos that were being shown around prior to Gamescom with the only notable difference being the path taken to each mission (because it was played live obviously).
Killzone was super colorful and gameplay-wise looked like something I could get into, so I got my eyes on it, maybe for a rental? The whole drone companion thingie is what really sold me to be honest, it just looked really cool and useful for once, gadgets looked great too.
Infamous Second Son was gorgeous. The way the main character broke down into fire and teleported forward, through vents and what not felt like a mix of Nightcrawler and Cole from Infamous. A combination I fell in love with, can't wait to get my hands on it early next year.
The main thing though was Titanfall. TITANFALL. Man, so much hype prior to the game and somehow I'm even more hyped now. Only reason I'd get a Xbox One so far but I guess it'll have to be PC. The demos were PC demos and it was amazing. Was an 8v8 match I'm pretty sure and it played, felt and looked amazing. You customize your character and choose your mech (Titan) from the character select with 3 available classes so far for each, all different (eg one Titan with massive machine gun or Titan with rocket launchers more effective vs other Titans). It took me a second to get used to the free running aspect of it but after that it felt incredibly satisfying running up and wall getting chased by a Titan before jetpacking backwards, falling on said Titan and destroying it. The Titans also felt great but I found a bug in which I'd shoot directly at enemies and they'd just absorb all bullets (more than with my normal character gun)... Weird but whatever it can be fixed.
Watch Dogs was just a video of the demo shown around the internet, nothing new, looks great and kinda glad I didn't see much because I already know I'll be getting it.
Gamescom was amazing, other than the average 4 hour waiting in line. Probably not going back again any time soon but glad I went. Sad I didn't get to play Battlefield 4 or use the Xbox One controller but those lines were just way too long. I'll just wait until November.
