PAX Prime 2013: Titanfall Hands On [ThriftyNerd]

Mike Dao of says, "Graphically, the game looks fantastic. Everything about Titanfall proclaims that it is a next generation title, from the solid frame rate to the graphical fidelity that can only be experienced on a next generation console. It is probably the first title for the Xbox One that truly shows off what it can do, and title people should be most excited about." (PAX Prime 2013, TitanFall, Xbox One)

Dude tere are so many titanfall articles that it's starting to ruin it's excitement and novelty. The game looks great and I can't wait to play it but it's appeal diminishes with every article! Doesn't feel like I'm gunna be surprised anymore

You know what is true? I don't think PS4 games are being shown today. Buy even at Gamescom there was very little hype behind the PS4 exclusives. Note that Gamescom was in Germany and had many European Journalists. What is going on here? Could someone with more Sony insight explain what is happening? Well other than Media bias.

huge disappointment... framerate slowdowns (even sub 30), sub 1080p resolution, aliasing and dithering....this is what's happening to ps4 exclusives :(

That is true. Here is the link

Well until theres footage of killzone running at 20fps
JP1369  +   821d ago
Where does it say anything about less than 1080p resolution?
Also, some things to consider:

1) Most likely an older build.
2) There's still plenty of time for GG to optimize. They're quite good at this by the way. Just look at the progress they've made since E3.
3) They've already mentioned their AA solution wasn't complete.
4) The game still looks better than any other launch title, and that's just the MP mode.

Edit: The guy that posted the thread eyeballed the framerate, so not at all as accurate as he would have you believe. He also claimed he saw a live demo of Watch Dogs that had PS4 UI but was running on PC. So yeah, the guy doesn't know what a dev kit is. Real reliable source right there./s

No need to worry about PS4. If it has teething problems, I can only imagine what the weaker console has in store for MS supporters.

lol, damage control?
JP1369  +   820d ago
Nope, just pointing out simple facts since most people are this site are incredibly ignorant when it comes to game development. It's bullshit when people do it to Ryse and it's the same when they do it to Killzone. Unfinished games are just that. I also pointed out that, for a game that hasn't even hit beta, it looks incredible. No other launch game compares, and if they can get the IQ up and steady the framerate, it will be a very impressive launch title.

Edit: Same guy also posted this:

Lol is it really hard to see why?

1. Microsoft is headquartered in seattle, WA. Pax Prime is in seattle. Lots of local journalists who are used to seeing Ms executives and there's also home grown bias since it is an american company.

-I just went to Pax and I can confirm that there's nothing to worry about. I played killzone shadow fall and the game is fine. The framerate is unlocked right now, meaning that it jumps between 30 & 60fps. I was told that this was still an earlier version, not the post gamescom one. There's still 2 months of optimization left.

-Driveclub seems to have gotten a boost in framerate. Still not a full 60fps but it seems like it goes up to 45fps. That's an improvement over the E3 demos.

That will never get old.

I am so excited for this game!
Bennibop  +   821d ago
I don't think it looks great graphically, looks fun but the graphics are nothing compared to ryse, kz and infamous ss
t3rrorc3ll  +   821d ago
Come on seriously. Nothing anyone has shown, both Microsoft and Sony, has been anything that special graphically. I'm getting both so I really don't care. Am holding off on the Xbox one at this stage in hopes of a Kinect less sku in the near future (bound to happen). But all these games don't look that special whether it's titanfall killzone or Ryse or driveclub. You young guys really put too much weight on the graphics. I don't think the Xbox one will be as powerful as the ps4 but it doesn't matter, they will both have excellent games. Look at the original metal gear solid. An awesome game. Horrible as all hell graphics.

Everything is subjective. And fans of one console over another will always justify their choice by saying x is better than y. Wether this is graphics or the console itself.

What irks me most though is that people are dreaming that the Xbox one has this dual gpu Bullshit. It's not going to happen so lets all move on

Seriously what a homerun this game is turning out to be. Nothing but excitement and great reviews from everyone who is lucky enough to play it.

This has got to be the day one game, there is no doubt about it.

MS really saw something in this game and they were smart to jump on it and make it an exclusive.
t3rrorc3ll  +   821d ago
Problem is when ea are involved it won't stay exclusive. And why would anyone want it too. Whether you own a Xbox one or ps4 we are all brothers and sisters. What would be really awesome is to be able to play cross platform. Except pc players they have their heads up their butts
XboxFun  +   821d ago
EA may be involved but they are also in bed with MS. Just like Epic, MS could keep this exclusive.

Why would I want this to stay exclusive? Because I want the full attention of the devs dedicated to working on this title for one platform. That's a big reason.

We are all brothers and sisters but I don't want to share my toothbrush with them.

I'll see you on the battlefield brother, hopefully you won't be on the receiving end of my Mech lighting the terrain up!
Welcome2Die  +   820d ago
Its from EA and its gonna come to the PS4 sooner or later.
If Mass Effect did it so will Titanfall and from what Ive seen, more people are going to be buying the PS4 anyway, there is no way EA is gonna let that pass up.
urwifeminder  +   821d ago
Hearing nothing but good things about this game looking forward to it plus no pesky single player to grind through.
