Titanfall looks amazing, but it plays much, much better than it looks | Penny Arcade

Penny Arcade: "EA showed off a new game mode for Titanfall, the first game to come from Respawn Entertainment, at Gamescom this week. The accompanying trailer is embedded in this post, although if you really want to get a sense of the game’s visuals you’ll want to download the high resolution version of the file. Watching the game being played via Youtube isn’t going to show you everything you should be seeing." (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

@tuglu How dare anyone dislike you're comment. They must not enjoy fun.
Skizelli  +   901d ago
I can almost say without a shadow of a doubt that this will be the game that finally dethrones COD.
DevilishSix  +   901d ago
Titanfall is not going to sell like COD, sorry you can dream though. COD is getting long in the tooth, agreed, but COD was loaded with content. Story mode, competitive multiplayer, spec ops missions, zombie modes, etc.

They need to show more of Titanfall, because once the newness wears off, will the content be there? That is what I want to know. We know there is no story mode so that is strike one. Will there be any co-op?
Salooh  +   901d ago
In gameplay yes, but sales i'm 100% sure it won't since it's not coming to ps4 in release date. That's why i say it's their lost. They are missing an opportunity to kill cod next generation because of timed exclusive..
Skizelli  +   901d ago

Not at first. 1) It would be foolish to compare it to COD sales now, seeing as COD keeps breaking records every year, 2) it's not an established franchise yet, and 3) it's a console exclusive. On the other hand, you'll be betting against the people who put COD on the map in the first place.

If history is anything to go by, COD won't be the king forever, just like GoldenEye and Halo before it. They just aren't doing enough with the franchise to make it stick out anymore. It'll eventually lose the crown for that reason alone.

Let's be honest. There has yet to be a COD plot that has outdone COD4's, and most players don't even bother with the single player anyway. Ask yourself why people keep playing COD in the first place. It's not so much the regurgitated content as it is the gameplay itself, as stale as it is now. It just "feels" good.

That's why I think Titanfall is the next big thing. It just looks extremely fun to play, and I'm hearing it controls better than it looks - something the former IW founders know something about.


A new reign has to start somewhere.

OK i just watched 6 minutes of KZ:SF MP video and It does NOT compare to Titanfall.

KZ:SF had it's speed increased from previous games making it more intense but it lacks all the goodies and new gameplay that Titanfall is offering.

Titanfall > KZ:SF MP

That's just my 2 cent opinion and I'm looking forward to Titanfall on my PC.

(I'm just comparing MP Modes as KZ:SF is all about the SP Mode which should be better than COD:G and BF4 SP mode)
Salooh  +   901d ago
Both have it's won atmosphere and feeling , why compare it ?. But you can compare titanfall to cod since they are the same developers who created it . I will enjoy both when they release in the ps4 :P .
HeavenlySnipes  +   901d ago
Titanfall gameplay we've seen has been scripted developer gameplay. Maybe it's just me, but I've yet to see the game played by a random.

The KZ one from today was a random guy playing botzone

With that said, Titanfall still looks like it'll be the best X1 game next to Project Spark.

This game looks fun to play, but hardly NEXTGEN. I'll be getting this on Xbox360.
Fireseed  +   901d ago
Handling a ton of action on screen, running 2 concurrent campaign mode interactions while oneline, as well as sporting maps that have been outfitted with 2 radically different movement systems (Titans and Freerunning), and it's not "NEXT GEN" care to enlighten us what is "NEXT GEN"?
Irishguy95  +   901d ago
Next gen is kz shadowfall . Which has quiet literally not innovated or attempted anything new in the gameplay departmebtnt. Nothing to stand out like titanfall and bf4
DevilishSix  +   901d ago
I will enlighten you because it can be played on 360. The PS3 cannot run Shadowfall as it was developed from the ground up for the PS4. Titanfall has been developed for multiple systems in different generations of hardware, it isn't next gen.
Salooh  +   901d ago
What the hell with these comparisons ?. Just enjoy both .

On tyre comment : i agree , graphically and even in gameplay most of it are possible in this generation . However , that doesn't change the fact that the gameplay is awesome..

Doesn't really stand out graphically, but game play looks fun. Getting on PC.
ABizzel1  +   901d ago
Graphics aren't everything, but seeing the game it doesn't amaze or wow me at all. So I guess I've have to see if playing it changes that. The maneuvering mechanics may be enough to get me to play it.
starchild  +   901d ago
I agree that it doesn't have quite as good of graphics as some of the other shooters like Battlefield 4 and KZSF, but I also think some of you more diehard Sony fans tend to downplay the visuals too much.

It looks fairly good and it conveys the world they are trying to present very well.

I also can't believe the way some people are going off the rails in some of those other threads, claiming that KZSF looks far better than any other game. It's just more exaggeration. I think KZSF looks very good and I will be getting it with my PS4, but a lot of what I like about it is the art direction. In technical terms it really isn't doing anything that Battlefield 4 or Crysis 3 isn't already doing.
ichdich  +   901d ago
this game looks so amazing, day one buy !!!
DevilishSix  +   901d ago
Not interested in multiplayer only games like Titanfall. More interested in innovative games that push limits like Destiny with its strong story, factions, loot, universe and worlds to explore. The drop in drop out approach to community events or to play competitively, its all there in Destiny thats where my curiosity lies.
Loki86  +   901d ago
Both games are going to enthrall the online community next year, that much is certain.
game_infected  +   901d ago
Visualy Can run easily on 360 but honestly gameplay is smooth and awesome. can waiiit!!
christocolus  +   901d ago
i really love this game....
HarryB  +   901d ago
Looks like homefront. Its built on the source engine. Source engine is older than mw2's engine.
Loki86  +   901d ago
What, I don't even...

How the hell is anything like homefront, please inform me of something I haven't caught. This more like Tribes, Hawken, and CoD.
Salooh  +   901d ago
He mean in graphics not gameplay . What the hell are Tribes, Hawken o.o
starchild  +   901d ago
I keep hearing people make comments like this about how old an engine is, and it is such an erroneous line of thinking.

Engines evolve over time and just because they might technically be the same engine the actual makeup of the engine and what it can do can be radically different over time.

Naught Dog is going to be using the same engine from this generation on their next generation games. Does that mean that their games are going to have crappy last gen graphics? Of course not.

I'm playing Splinter Cell Blacklist on the PC right now and it has some of the best visuals I have seen, yet it is built on the Unreal Engine 2.5 (not even Unreal Engine 3), which has been around for many years. But it is a heavily modified Unreal Engine 2.5.

The point is, it's more about how a developer leverages and/or adapts an engine to achieve what they want to do. Getting hung up on an engine's name and when it first came out is a pointless and faulty way of thinking.
HarryB  +   901d ago
Its how the engine registers online. Play counter strike global offensive or cs source. When you play online its not the same as a lan game or local area network. Your not going to get the best registry with the source engine. The source engine was heavily modified. Its a big christmas tree of updates they keep adding to it. Now online with titanfall your going to feel exactly the same way counter strike players have been feeling for years. Bad registry even with dedicated servers.

The source engine sucks also because it prioritizes the players with the worse ping. So if I have a 30 ping in a server the person from brazil with 185 ping will have better registry to the server than me. Happens all the time.

I can't tell you how many times I've unloaded bullets into another player and I see blood on their bodies and the server doesn't even register a hit. There is youtube video that explains this.

Also since anyone who has experience with counter strike or team fortess will know that the first thing you do in a game like this is lower all the bull shit graphics. All the settings you see in these videos are high and they are playing on lan. A lot of us are going to have to lower those settings because of shit fps rates due to the heavily modifed source engine that can't handle the data flow.

If you want to buy this game fine just wait a few weeks because every source game that comes out has issues.
Supermax  +   901d ago
You'll be playing this on X1 don't deny yourself.
DevilishSix  +   901d ago
It's on 360 and PC as well right? No need to drop $500 plus tax for an X1 to play one game.

Can't wait to get it on the PC!
