Respawn's Drew McCoy recalls the early days of marketing Titanfall, saying that it was quite tough to market the game without a traditional SP campaign.
Maybe you should have included a single player campaign then? ;) I wish... :(
For the sake of it? No thanks.
You protect this game like it's your baby.
@walterwjr Maybe its cos he has played it and knows how good the game is unlike alot of guys here,actually all those i know who have experienced this game act the same way as septic,all i hear is how much fun they had with it at those events. The previews/hands on have all been positive too,i think its going to be a really good game.
Weird , seems to me it depends who you ask . Many people i know dont care about the campaigns from COD or BF anymore . And i wouldnt blame them , BF's sp are regarded as generic whatever they do , and COD's Sp hasnt been really interested after MW1 or BO1 . They basically buy the game for MP
@walter Because I have played it and don't chat s*** without actually having a clue what it's about? I also have stated that BF3 and 4 didn't need single player. Just because Walter Junior was pretty much useless in the Breaking Bad and all he did was eat cereal doesn't mean you need to make even more useless contributions. But I guess you want single player for the sake of it yeah?
Not sure why they're disagreeing with you, a tacked on SP would have only wasted resources.
That's exactly why Cod and Battlefeild include a 4 hours campaign, they mmake it just for marketing and to make the trailers look cool.
Ooops..guess I was wrong. People want tacked-on Single Player. BF4's lackluster campaign...all is forgiven.
Septic I was not just referring to this comment. All your posts lord the game based on a single tech demo you played. No one said anything about tacked on single player, obviously we want a decent one. Oh and please don't mock my breakfast eating habits. Breaking bad is nothing without jr and his veggy bacon.
WE DO NOT WANT A SINGLE PLAYER GAME
"No one said anything about tacked on single player, obviously we want a decent one. " Yeah and I just said that we don't want a single player game for the sake of it. That was somehow akin to protecting the game like its my baby? Oh how you'd much rather prefer to the copy and paste rage sentiments of fanboys berating a game they haven't played right? Let's listen to sofa experts on what's best for the game, not the developers that actually made it in the first place. "All your posts lord the game based on a single tech demo you played." Any why is that? Is it all hubris? And that's still more than most of the haters have done. The sad thing is, they can't even wait till March before making their minds up. Agendas mate...agendas...
It's a real shame to see more dislikes on your comment than likes. We as gamers complain about the state of game development and the quality of the games they produce and it's a real hit to know it's because most gamers enable them. Battlefield started as a MP only game and now they take resources away from the MP to create a Single Player that nobody likes nor wants just for the sake of it. I for one am glad Respawn is not giving in. We always complain about games that add a MP that is just not needed. I wish people would see the double standard and realise they are wrong.
Not sure why you have so many disagrees, tacked on singleplayers are the worst. Ive literally just finished the BF4 campaign 5 minutes ago and it was pretty bad, bad writing/story, bad dialogue, bad everything apart from graphics. I'd much rather Respawn focus all resources on one aspect (MP) rather than using some of those resources for a tacked on Sp. I wish DICE/EA would do the same with the BF franchise.
@septic, walterjr probably doesn't even have an XONE. Ps4 ppl just like to troll this game. I dont understand why its so important to ppl to rag on the console that they dont own. I like gaming, i own both. Idk what it is with gamers on the internet. I've always owned all consoles (until wii, i skipped wii and wii U). SEGA, Nintendo. PS1, N64. PS2, Xbox, Gamecube and Dreamcast. X360, PS3. PS4, XONE. Glad i've always been a gamer and not a loyalist. I'm only 22 y/o and through all those consoles, i've had tons of fun. I feel incredibly sorry for those of you who believe you have to be loyal to one company. Infamous will be my single player and TitanFall will be my Multi-player. Because i own both, i can have it both ways. See how great it is? Cheers to gaming!
This game will do fine, every person I know that has an XB1, and plenty of people on my friends list are looking forward to Titanfall. This game is only tough to market to PS4 players, lol. They are the ones leading the charge to bring this game down. They hate the fact that greatness awaits........until at least 2015. No major exclusives for them besides rehashed single player games.
No kidding. I don't buy Battlefield for the single player, I don't buy CounterStrike for the single player. Some games just don't need it.
So according to most above, devs should take less success by avoiding the singleplayer audience.
Actually I hope more developers take this path! Why include a tacked on single player or multiplayer? Put more effort into where it matters! Sick of tacked on and meaningless game mode just so you can check it off on a list.
I agree completely. The fact that all of their focus has been on their concept of online multiplayer only means it is only going to be that much better.
I would you know why? Because they will sell this game for 60 dollars and if this game becomes a success you know what will happen? A new trend where online only games with no sp will be sold for 60 dollars. And then 15 dollar dlc will follow suite. Screw EA, Activision, Respawn and all cod creatros and Crapcom.
They did, that's what the 50 count AI players are for... Blurring the lines between Singleplayer & Multiplayer like a true champ.
We haven't seen yet what they truly mean with "blurring the line between single player and multi", though.
It doesn't need to be there just for the sake of having it.. People are just used to a certain formula that's been done to death.. Considering most games are essentially mp games with a crappy campaign added on almost as an after thought.. Why not just do away with it and focus on what people really want?
OMG these poor babies don't know how they'll advertise their game to the world? I feel so bad for these people... Maybe if the media could write and talk about titanfall a little more, maybe we would know more about this game.... Sarcasm aside, can this game be more hiped then it is right now? It's starting to have the reverse affect on me and Ive started to get repulsed by the amount of coverage... Deep down I'm kinda hoping it fails... Anyways I'm sure it will do fine and many will enjoy it but... Stop treating it like The second coming of Christ
Multiplayer and Co-op is the the future of gaming that's what sells and plus who wants a 5 hour campaign anyways? The way I see it eliminate the useless and work on the essentials.
exactly, i'll wait til it drops to bargain bin prices til i pick it up. a good portion of us don't play much multiplayer VS. I enjoy coop with friends, but without a SP campaign Titanfall is a hard sell for 60$
It's easy to market an exclusive. Uninteresting games become AAA to some and interesting games become shitty to others.
Uh oh, you can't say "exclusive" when talking about Titanfall without opening a can of worms..! Makes people squabble. :o I think you're right though. EDIT: Below, you can only edit for about 15 minutes. You won't pick up an all-out ban for that, I'm pretty sure. :)
What happened to the ability to edit comments? I don't want to get banned or anything for swearing, but it's a habit.
You get 15 minutes to edit. And don't worry, people rarely get reported for swearing; usually just if the rest of the comment is really disagreeable or a mod comes by and reads that one comment out of the hundred others.
Don't be too sure, I had 5 bubbles before I used the word "F*ck", ***DISCLAIMER TO MODS*** using it as a reference not as an "obscene pornographic word". Apparently any use gets you a bubble down, at least when it suits them.
Yep, perfect examples are Lair, Twisted Metal, Knack, the last three or four Ratchet & Clanks, GT5, GT5 Prologue, Haze, Time Crysis 4, Mag, Dust 514, PS All Stars Battle Royale, God of War Ascension, etc.
