Titanfall Could Be A Game Changer

Forbes - Respawn’s next-gen shooter looks incredible. I have yet to get hands-on time with Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming shooter Titanfall. But it’s the first competitive first-person shooter that I’ve been excited to play in a long time, and one of the few games being demoed at recent conventions that makes me actually wish I’d attended (along with Dark Souls 2!)

The story is too old to be commented.

"HALO,GEARS OF WAR,FORZA,DEAD RISING,KILLER INSTINCT...I could go on"

LOL actually you stated every Xbox major franchise, and no, you couldn't go on. Btw you only have Ryse and Fable left.

I could g ON and ON if I stated Ps franchises. But I don't want to.

I'll do it :

Gran Turismo
God of War
Uncharted
Little Big Planet
Killzone
Ratchet and Clank
Resistance
Sly Raccoon
Infamous

The End.(These are franchises, games that have more than one game,currently on Ps3, I could write the "one hit wonders" but there too many.)

gamertk4211094d ago

@pedro. Yes, but they wouldn't be any good after the first 3 or so.

Manic20141094d ago

@Pedro

True that WAS Xbox major franchises but if you have seen E3 they are expanding the franchises even though it is very late in the process. Let me finish the list.....

Halo
Gears of Wars
Forza
Alan Wake
Fable
Ryse
Killer Instinct
Quantum Break
Sunset Overdrive
Dead Rising
Project Spark
D4
Crimson Dragon

So be it some of these are forthcoming titles and franchises but the good thing is they are expanding the exclusives on the system which MS should of done n the first place for the 360.

Though i 100% can agree that Sony have had Consistent support for exclusives which i think MS will be doing this for the X1.

Damn right :-) and even if it goes to ps4 they can enjoy the left overs

@Smoovekid
Google Respawn saying that the pc version is only playable on windows 7 and up

insomnium21094d ago

Everything really does hinge on one game for the xfans. That's like honestly the most pathetic thing I've come across in a long time.
The minute they get even one good game their ego balloons like a mf. Do I have to remind you guys what's been going on in all these years after Kinect was first revealed?

I'm at a loss for words here really. I mean how stupid and transparent can you get?

CGI-Quality1094d ago

Leftovers? If it is the exact same game, it would mean they got the exact same meal. Pretty flawed thinking, if I do say so myself. Then again, the irony of the statement confirms the desperation of the first poster here, since he couldn't say "only on Xbox ONE", but "only on MS". As a PC gamer, if I don't have to get an X1 for Titanfall, that doesn't help its case.

OT: I agree that this game may play a pivotal role in the 8th gen.

jukins1094d ago

except when it does come to ps4 it will come with all the dlc x1 players had to pay for, for free.

Godlovesgamers1094d ago (Edited 1094d ago )

Actually that's not been verified and it would seem that it's a timed exclusive.

In regards to the title.... a game changer? That's yet to be seen. It looks cool but when you boil it down, let's be honest it's a modified MW2 with Mechs and no single player campaign. I think if they retail the game at $60 it will be a tough sell especially considering the $100 more that you'll pay for the DLC at the end of the day.

That said, if they that had a sweet single player campaign with an awesome story (and from what I've seen this game has awesome potential for a great story to be told), I'd be on board with this day one.

GarrusVakarian1094d ago (Edited 1094d ago )

Until it comes to PS4. Which it probably will after a certain amount of time.

IHassounah1094d ago

After all these awards , I doubt Microsoft will let that happen , they'll purchase the franchise

scott1821094d ago

It does look cool and different. Not a game changer for me personally, I wont be picking it up, but I can honestly see why it's popular with a lot of people. I am into the more standard run and gunner games, love me some call of duty and battlefield, looking forward most of all to killzone. But like I said I can see why people would be very interested in this game.

Johnsonparts231094d ago

Gotta love the xbone trolls that try to associate Windows with Xbox. LOL! I'll be playin this on my PC then switching over the my PS4 everyday! Xbox ain't got $hit!

ichdich1094d ago

yes it will be. looks amazing.

DinoNYC1094d ago

Overrated. Not a gamer changer by any means and unoriginal.

GarrusVakarian1094d ago

Jetpacks with parkour and mechs?

I'd day that's pretty original.

Hicken1094d ago

Not really. Killzone's done the mechs and jetpacks thing, and Brink did parkour(not so great a package, though). Didn't really combine them in an original fashion. Just combined them.

Don't get me wrong. I still think the game looks fun. But there aren't really any original aspects to it.

FlunkinMonkey1094d ago (Edited 1094d ago )

Killzone 3 had mechs and jetpacks and had better graphics i might add. what is making this game fun is the parkour element which is hardly original.

Fun for sure, a game changer? please.. This doesn't even have a SP.

@Hicken

Damn you, damn you to Hell! (for getting their first).

@Tariq

Well.. This is awkward.. ha

ABeastNamedTariq1094d ago (Edited 1094d ago )

Jetpacks and mechs aren't really original. Sheesh, both of those were in KZ3. Parkour isn't either.

OT: However, the combination of all three, combined with the speed and verticality of the maps, does look very fun.

EDIT: Damn you both above, lol. You beat me too it as well.

Bolts1094d ago

Yeah. Killzone had jet packs. But then again so did Tribes and that was ages ago, but none of them are cool and fluid as Titan Fall.

And as far as game changers goes this is poised to be MS next Gears of Wars in terms of break out hit. Sad to say but Killzone online gameplay is shit compared to this, the vids that were shown were the same generic boring garbage that caused Killzone fans to abandon Killzone 3 in droves.

dark-hollow1094d ago

It's not about who had what first, it is all about how smoothly and seamlessly you introduce these mechanics to your game.

Cover based third person shooters aren't a new thing with gears of war for an example, but dank sure they implement it better than anybody before them.

-Foxtrot1094d ago

I agree I don't see the big hype for it, it's just a standard FPS with a few tiny new things thrown in their which we've seen in other games (wallrunning - BRINK...Jetpacks - Halo...Mechs - Lost Planet/Earth Defensae Force etc)

I mean when I heard Respawn was working on this new FPS I expected something different...something with a single player at least. Not a FPS which looks like what the next COD after MW should of been.

LogicStomper1094d ago

I'm curious here, what do you define to be a 'standard' shooter?

pandehz1094d ago (Edited 1094d ago )

It depends

Many many games have tried these things, bits and pieces from so many games.

Some games even 10yrs+ ago.

In the end its about the execution of these elements to make a coherent and fun game. Titanfall looks like its nailing it in that department.

It just might become the game changer but again maybe not.

Bigpappy1094d ago

Well said.
This game is in very capable hands and this game is the only game that has blown away all the journalist who have played it so far.

I am not going to say it is a game changer, just yet, but I am going to say it is the most impressive hands-on demo so far. Because that is the truth.

GarrusVakarian1094d ago

I wouldn't go so far as game changer but it does look really fun.

SCW19821094d ago

As good as this game is it is still just a multiplayer experience which means when it comes to story and narrative I won't be so hurt if I don't play it. But who am I kidding it will come to the Sony side eventually otherwise they would have already said its exclusive to Xbox. Respawn is being very hush hush about other platforms for right now for a reason.
