Titanfall certainly looks awesome, but you’ll get bored of it in no time

Respawn Entertainment's first IP, Titanfall, is bound to set the multiplayer world ablaze with fast-paced on-foot action and massively powerful mech shooting.

But it won't last, that's a promise.

I agree its just a typical fps nothing really exciting about it imo especially since its up against BF4. Titanfall wont really excite seasoned gamers for long we have seen it all before. I will try it on a steam sale sometime when its <20

The_Infected1102d ago

Yea like CoD is the same boring game but everyone plays it all the time.

cyberninja1102d ago

By everybody you mean casual gamers and dudebros pew pew gamers. Cod gamers are casual gamers, all they do is play 1-3 games per year.

u got owned1102d ago

@cyberninja

So i guess all the COD pros are also casuals.

Tctczach1101d ago

@Cyberninja I'm a COD player and I have a huge list of games.

n4rc1101d ago

I love the arrogance.. You "hardcore" gamers are such a vast minority that you literally don't matter.

I'm in that group as well.. But its a fact.. We may buy the first few hundred thousand units.. But who do you think buys the other 75 million units? Or why cod has the highest player pool.

PeaSFor1101d ago

@u got owned

so..... "pro gamers" rely on higly aim assisted gameplay now?

damn, the poor "pro gamers" playing COD would have been raped inside out on Quake3 and UT.

AngelicIceDiamond1101d ago

Sounds like the writer has a time machine hes holding out on us.

ShinMaster1101d ago

Titanfall is a lot like COD with a little bit of Starhawk on the side.

Nothing I haven't seen before.

Sleepless1101d ago

@cyberninja
So COD its now a casual game?...you better get some sleep dude!

Murad1101d ago

I've never touched a single CoD game since Modern Warfare; want to know why? Because there's better games out there. Battlefield 3 on the other hand isn't any better either.

Kleptic1101d ago

I won't under-estimate titanfall...I haven't been blown away by it yet, but haven't seen much either...

but everyone taking the critical standpoint...can gtfo...I bet if every person in here was asked what they were doing in late 2007, game wise...it was playing cod 4...the original MW was before it was 'cool' to hate CoD...I, too, got completely tired of it...and nothing innovative enough has been added to the franchise since...but no joke, cod4 was a pretty big deal...

CoD popularity is very straight forward...it has the smallest barrier to entry of any competitive shooter...but, for a lot of us, that ease of entry also removes depth...hopefully titanfall can fix that...

GraveLord1101d ago

Opinions are like buttholes. Everyone has one.
Thinking yours is better than others is incredibly naive and amusing.

I don't like Battlefield. You don't see me going around trolling on every BF4 news article. GROW UP. This BF vs COD thing has always been ridiculous. It's like comparing apples to oranges.

Apples are easier to eat and require no peeling.
Oranges require a bit more work on your part but they are also delicious.

Just because you like one, its doesn't mean you can't like the other. It also doesn't mean you have to tell everyone how the Apple doesn't have enough juices. We don't care.

YNWA961101d ago

Everyone an expert on something they have not played... nice...

Ragthorn1101d ago

@PeaSFor
I agree, the amount of aim assist is just so huge when playing console CoD. I play it on PC now, and there is no aim assist whatsoever, but it made me feel much more satisfied for a kill with no hand-holding. I recently went back and play Unreal Tournament 2004. and Quake Live, THOSE ARE EXTREMELY FUN, and I've seen some pro players there, they are a whole different beast lol.

Utalkin2me1101d ago

@PeaSFor

Or you mean Quake3 and UT players would get raped at pro COD players? The same can be said. I played on a competitive Quake 3 team for a while in OGL and such, staying in the top 5 for the most part.

Comparing a mouse and keyboard player to a controller is just stupid IMO. Keyboard and mouse player has such a bigger advantage and easier to use it's not even funny.

Heartnet1101d ago

@Cyberninja

why are u trying to downplay the casual gamer? nothign wrong with that lol....

ur not "coooler" than some1 who plays 3 or some1 who plays 3+ a year...

hell ive played 3 games this year but the combined hours put into them is probz twice yours :L its not cool and nothing to boast about...

and everybody is the casual gamer market as they out weigh the hardcore by a vast majority

redwin1101d ago

Mmmm, my friends and I still play "counter strike " on Xbox. Old, only a versus mode on and off line. It's one of the best games I've ever played "good" is subjective !

How is TitanFall up against battlefield, Battlefield is a launch title and we don't when Titanfall is coming out?

@heavenly snipes

I <3 you for saying that

biRdy1101d ago

Plus the fact that they are both from the same publisher.

for me it was between Titanfall and Destiny and Destiny won me over

Like take-Two RS said when they announced Agent as exclusive to ps3, their exact words were when you are launching a new IP it can be good if you are exclusive to one console because you will get more fan attention and media attention with word exclusive

right now ps4 fans are bashing it and xbox one fans are saying they love titanfall while both have not played the game, how many of those ps4 fans would hate it if it was coming day one to ps4?(i still believe its a 6-12 months timed exclusive). also how many xbox one fans would say its awesome and can't wait if it was coming to ps4 too?

gaming community is very weird now a days, fanboys get some joy of the fact if something is exclusive

MonChiChi1101d ago

It's coming to PC so I couldn't care less.

Scatpants1101d ago

Im getting a PS4 and I think Titanfall looks cool. Ill probably get the bone when it comes out

CrossingEden1101d ago

i've seen you defending killzone shadowfall, which is doing absolutely nothing new

fourOeightshark1099d ago

They showed off Killzone Shadowfall MP gameplay already?

zerocrossing1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

Speaking as huge mech nerd I'm pretty sure I'd get my moneys worth at least. I'd much rather games that offer something new like Titanfall be developed instead of just the annual slew of tired, generic modern FPS's.

T21101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

I agree but even kz3 has mechs ... They still have to be done well or its no more fun than say a cool looking tank
Why cant they just make a new , great "mechwarrior " lol

lastofgen1101d ago

Lol...how in the world would you know if it will excite gamers or not?

Surely if it was coming to the ps4 exclusively you'd be excited for it, no??

Hufandpuf1101d ago

"Exampling Call of Duty once more, how many players who religiously play online against others took the time to explore other game modes, including the single player and cooperative campaigns? A safe guess would be upwards of 90% of players, which seems generous, but when you’re shelling out $60 and tax for a game, why wouldn’t you want to get your money’s worth and explore all your options?"

NOT TRUE. Titanfal has a singleplayer component that blends the multiplayer. And saying 90% of COD players play singleplayer is 100% false.

only 18% of people even beat COD black OPs, and 17% beat BF3

asmith23061101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

I'm not getting an X1 because f**k M$, but I hope this makes it to PS4 some day. I wouldn't mind playing it, looks good.

k2d1101d ago

Seems you're only speaking for half of the general populaton, eh?

strifeblade1101d ago

well sony gamers would hope so because if it does not get boring in one hour than sony gamers would be missing out on the time of their lives lol

quaneylfc1101d ago

and bf4 is anything new? well done you certainly haven't played any others then, think about the parkour, the man and robot amalgamation and the addictiveness of vince zampella's last games, bf4 is going to be a bigger version of the last one with an equally crap and lazy story mode and shiny shiny graphics, i like titanfall because it actually IS different and im not even buying it, i just like it.

i think mirrors edge is the only fp game that has shown any kind of creativity in the past few years, with the inclusion of the free running stuff, everything else has been a cod or bf ripoff

malokevi1101d ago

"with some players being drawn to a single player experience (like yours truly)"

This is where the article falls flat on its face. This is a person that is clear in his perspective, that single player is the most important draw in a game.

"It comes down to the idea that a multiplayer-only game has no lasting appeal in the grand scheme of things."

Oh, really? Because it seems like all the FPS titles see their player base play multiplayer for months and even years after release. Can the same be said of Singleplayer? does anyone even play singleplayer? Did the author even bother to look for evidence when he said:

"how many players who religiously play online against others took the time to explore other game modes, including the single player and cooperative campaigns? A safe guess would be upwards of 90% of players"

Well, it took me two seconds:

http://www.vg247.com/2013/0...

http://www.google.ca/url?sa...

I'm not saying he's wrong.... but he's wrong. It doesn't take a genius to see that. Anyone who plays first person shooters, and actually plays them online, knows how massive and fanatical the player base is. Can the same be said of single-player focused gamers? How many times can they finish a linear campaign before they are sick of it?

"even though in the end it feels just like the same kart pushing game you’ve known and loved throughout the years."

And... single player is somehow more "fresh" than multiplayer?

As far as articles go, this one sucks. Looks like the author wrote this just to poke the bear, because how in their right mind could anybody agree with what hes saying?

His other reason: Titanfall isn't COMMERCIAL enough? lol. Beanie Babies? Who is this guy kidding? Were talking about a FIRST PERSON SHOOTER! my lord!

A hard sell? How about E3 game of show, and the fact that gamers are currently swooning over it? I guess that's just... nothing?

uhg. ridiculous. " http://www.savecontinue.com... was clearly looking for some attention.

JeffGUNZ1101d ago

Half of you are the biggest nerds ever. The fact that some of you think you're "cooler" because you classify yourself as a "hardcore gamer" just really makes you a "hardcore" nerd. People have different preferences. Everyone doesn't have the same life/circumstances as others and only can play here and there. Who cares if they enjoy COD or not? I have maxed out presteige in Black Ops 2 and am also playing The Last of Us and Alan Wake and other games other then COD. Stop making gamers look bad by bragging you're more nerdy then the rest of us. It's sickening. Gaming is suppose to be fun and to ones interest and half you morons try to ruin it for others.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1101d ago

If this was a PS4 only game, this article would never exist. This guy would be praising the game hard.

JsonHenry1101d ago

I personally thought the game looked fun but when compared the likes of other games shown (The Division or Destiny for example) I thought the same thing- that it would get boring fairly quickly.

PurpHerbison1101d ago

I sound like a broken record by now but this game is your typical FPS and the only thing that makes it different is the Mech HUD they slap on. Even then, when inside the mech it still looks like a typical FPS.

Godz Kastro1101d ago

Is there a video game hierarchy I am unaware of? Its crazy that console guys get mad when PC elitist look down on them. However console guys look down on dudebros and casuals as if they dont count...pathetic

Brasi19891101d ago

You'll probably never see this game on a Steam sale as it's published by EA. =/

Megaton1101d ago

It probably won't even be on Steam. EA. Origin.

Bring on teh clowd

PIRGANEK1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

I wish this "site" would post some relevant things, not just everything Microshaft and Shoddy is doing. I've been viewing the comments from afar and your comment irritated me.. This Microshaft "cloud" boosting graphics and performance myth sh*t was busted about a week ago. The cloud cannot be used to boost game performance due to peoples current Internet connectivity speeds and terrible latency. -__- instead of telling people the right information this site relies view click bait, misleading titles and things to fuel this imaginary "console war".

Onlive has proven cloud gaming works so take your snark elsewhere.

It's disgusting that you have predefined standards of what a woman should do in your own perspective. What's it matter what gender this person is, trolling is trolling.

Skips1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

"the game plays like CoD maybe but in much better and innovative way"

Why? Because it has mechs??? LOL!

You're comment above:
""its just a typical fps"

we are not talking about Killzone here aren't we?"

LMFAO! It's funny because Killzone 3 already had mechs in MP, and so do many other games. XD Don't see the innovation in Titan Fall at all really.

Because it basically IS just COD with mechs. -_-

davidj881101d ago

I must admit the ''It looks like COD w/ mechs and no fish A.I.'' made me chuckle.

I actually think Titanfall will turn out to be somewhat of a decent game, the mechs however seem a bit too gimmicky in my opinion as without them it would be referred to as another COD with free-running and jet packs so they are almost using them to distance themselves from COD.

I think it does have some potential to be a good multiplayer game but without hands-on or more in depth footage we can't really tell just yet, gimmick or not it's something different and sometimes different turns out to be good.

Urusernamesucks1101d ago

Cod with mechs is not even close to describing this game.

YAWN! Sad sad little Sony creature.

Ragthorn1101d ago

Ashunderfire861102d ago

I don't care what this guy says in the article. Titanfall will be an instant system seller, along with 360/PC. Yeah it's a multiplayer only game, but look at the majority of people playing multiplayer games like Battlefield, Call of Duty, Halo, Counter Strike, and many others in the past and now. All those games including old classics like Goldeneye, had lasting appeal to this day.

Titanfall need I remind you all, will be one of the first games to truly demonstrate the cloud on X1, and yes the game will be constantly updated like Destiny, which is going to try to do the same thing. Right now I currently have PS4 preordered, but I will get X1 next year when Titanfall or Quantum Break releases.
