Titanfall Preview: Meching a Difference | Shack News

Shack News: "On paper, Titanfall doesn't sound particularly innovative or exciting. It's a sci-fi multiplayer first-person shooter from the creators of Call of Duty. What isn't these days? But Respawn Entertainment's debut game manages to be much more than the sum of its parts. It compels not through bombastic set pieces and easily marketable bullet-point features. Instead, it's thrilling simply because the mechanics are so thoughtfully crafted."

mattdillahunty2008d ago


please stop spreading misinformation. you don't have to have Windows 8 to play Titanfall.

Except for Xbox 360 gamers.

PS4 gamers only have to wait 6 months to a year for the PS4 version.

Lol keep telling yourself that. Only thing you guys are gonna get is the bf4 map pack.

Naw i'm good... really! Its just COD with mech's... Sick of all the shooters coming out. People wonder why the industry is going under. When EVERYONE is making one type of game. No body really cares any more. So I say KEEP IT. Playstation gives me variety and not just shooters. Does Xbox have games like The Last Of Us? NO? Didn't think so...

ifritAlkhemyst2008d ago

Thank you! I love how it's a generic FPS, then you hop into a mech and... it's a generic FPS.

Cue fanboys creaming themselves.

SockeyBoy2008d ago

You had me at "mech's" :D

FrigidDARKNESS2008d ago

Yes sir. MS signed the exvlusive rights deal for the game so it wont see daylight on another comsole.

M-M2008d ago

I saved an image of your comment so that when it becomes available on the PS4, I can prove you wrong. Trust me, we're likely going to see it on the PS4.

Polysix2008d ago

And everything else about the XBoxOne will make them glad they don't own one! (and will just play it on the PC better anyway, in between bouts of PS4 infamous SS, Killzone SF etc)

Guess you must of misread my post. Can see how that's possible with Xbox fans having an 8th grade education and all. Its a (Mech) shooter! Anyone remember Chrome Hounds that came out for the 360 as an Exclusive??? How that flopped??? Yea didn't think so. Cause not that many people played it. I can see this in time getting very boring for people but you know its just my FAN BOY talking. Not someone with an open minded opinion about the game.

ifritAlkhemyst2008d ago

Man, Xbox had some great mech games as I recall. Phantom Crash, Steel Battalion, I recall the 1st Mechwarrior (or was it Mechassault, I can never remember) being awesome.

This game looks like Shogo quality gameplay with spiffy graphics.

TheEvilWithin2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

Yea but was that a HUGE success for Microsoft? Were they ever KNOWN for those games? NOPE! Cause Mech games for the ORIGANAL Xbox were sleeper hits. I think the only thing people are going off from is that the Call of Duty guys are doing it. You think this is going to become as big or bigger then call of duty? Sorry don't think so. With the poor sales already for the Xbox 1. I don't see this staying there for long. Just my opinion you know as a SONY fan boy and all.

ifritAlkhemyst2008d ago

Dude, chillout. I agreed with your above comment and I was merely waxing nostalgic here.

Shit, even people I agree with on this site act like looney tunes.

Bigpappy2008d ago

Mechassault on the Xbox was one of the top Xbox live games for over a year.

Polysix2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

Ingore my avatar - this could be a PS4 exclusive and I still wouldn't get all the hype for this game.

And even IF it does turn out to be pretty good, my PC will be the platform for this so I lose NOTHING by avoiding the spybox!

A-laughing-horse2008d ago

Take your pills bud. No ones spying on you.


exactly. ...because the intelligent gamers won't be buying the spybox one.

Polysix2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

Xbone will be the world's number one tech hack target on release. Can't wait till they bust it wide open and post 24/7 users Kinnect live cam for all to see. It WILL happen and you won't even know it has until it's too late. Enjoy!
