From the producers of Call of Duty, here is one game that will truly revolutionize the shooting game world. Here are exclusive insights into the pros and cons surrounding Titanfall.
Titanfall has enormous potential it'll probably be hard to go back to the COD's after getting used to all of the wall climbing double jumping and huge epic mech battles
Well I guess people who played on BRINK (despite it not being good overall) or Assassins Creed online must of found it really hard to get back into COD /s What about those who got used to jetpacks/boosters in Halo Reach, must of been very difficult. I find it very hard to believe this is going to put an end to rehashed shooters. It will change things up a bit but it's nothing mind blowing, not as much as people are being lead to believe. Am I saying it's crap...No Am I saying it won't be good...No Am I saying people are over hyping something which will end up feeling like a shooter at it's core once the whole mech thing wears off...Yes. NOTE: As I've said before I never got sucked into the hype BEFORE platforms were announced...just pointing that out since theres going to be the "Sony" related comment. You know the one.
Chill with the lame comparisons. Just because other games have implement ed certain items, doesn't mean they were executed anything like what we have in Titan Fall... Will this game feel like a shooter at its core? Yes... Because it IS a shooter at its core. The question is Will it feel like a breath of fresh air after 8 years of shooters copying and pasting the COD formula? We hope so and the various hands-on previews we've seen suggest that it may be be true. THAT'S where the hype stems from.
@mhunterjr Exactly that I for one am not that hyped for it but as someone who heavily played COD in the past especially MW2 it reminds me of how fun that game was even though it was broken to death. I mean it's not bad thing par say it's not reinventing the wheel but like you said it's being new gameplay to the table with inspiration from different places. If we are to see COD change or FPS's then we need a title to truly be A *COD killer* which this has the potential to be. Would have been more damaging if it was on more platforms but once the second comes out I think it could give COD a real run for it's money.
Foxtrot, we all know you think this game is overhyped. You post it in every article regarding TF.
Titanfall: the perpetuation of rehashed shooters. I like Titanfall but wont buy it for the available platforms because i know at least two of the gaming platforms are holding back its potentials. I hate the bland graphics , low resolution and low player count with ai bots running around. This game should have been made on pc first then ported to the weaker consoles the xboxes. The game seems like crysis to me in a lot of ways.
I dont believe for a second it's new . however i like what i see (bare stuff like the AI) , because it looks like the return to something more akin to older fps like Quake , than the constant milking of military pseudo realistic bore fest . Well to be fair , i did enjoy , and still enjoy a few of those , but i want far for the return of twitching fps with acrobatic and actual accurate aiming . And no Halo while great in its own stuff , doesnt fullfill that need for me enough . I shall see if titan fall does
I've played brink, COD, Titanfall and A/C. All I have to say to you is.... AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AHAHAHA That is all.
HATE ALL YOU WANT! On March 11, 2014 records will be broken again lol
@Fox Considering it is a shooter, I would expect that it will, at some point, feel like a shooter. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go re-play Brink and AssassinsCreed. Apparently, there were mech battles in those games that I've missed in my earlier playthroughs.
Ok, so let's do a comparison. A match of AC online http://www.youtube.com/watc... A match of Brink http://www.youtube.com/watc... And a match of titanfall http://www.youtube.com/watc... Yea those three games totes look similar rite gais? -_-
Always makes me cringe to hear this game labeled as revolutionary. Having mentally challenged bots at a 3:1 ratio to human players is not revolutionary. Also bots in mutiplayer are so 1990's. Having mechs in a FPS isn't revolutionary, Killzone 3 did it many years ago. And Starhawk also says hi (although SH is a TPS). Parkour wall climbing in an online game isn't revolutionary, Crysis did it several years ago. 720p resolution also isn't revolutionary, PS3 and 360 have been doing it for almost a decade now. And everything else this game does, has been done to death by COD. This game is about as far from being revolutionary as a game can get.
50 players, only 12 are real people. Bot generated action. If they are still putting 50 "players" on a single map, why not make them all REAL PLAYERS? why only 12? What's the difference??? What's this "balance" they talk about?? I guess 50 real players would be chaos? Maybe the game can't handle 50 players online?? Or the "balance" they talk about is a lot of dumb bots who you can kill easily and who you will be killing a lot making you feel "bad ass" and making the game feel fast paced? Sounds to me like an illusion, a make believe online ""multiplayer"& quot;.
I remember the cool things they said about a legendary game called HAZE!
For those saying I'm repeating myself on every article...so? Oh so its fine for people to praise it on every article but the other way round is a no no. Hypocrites
agree with you completely fox and gave you a well said bubble, the game isnt changing anything , its another [email protected] fps, i wish fps would just go die in a hole for a while so other genres would be the main focus.
Thank you Foxtrot. Why people are acting ape shit over this game confuses me. It looks like a rather normal FPS game. So it has a decent emphasis on vertical as well as horizontal map design. It has mechs. It has a, dumb ass AI in the fight to engage the battlefield, concept. Okay now where is the holy shit the gaming world as we know it will be on its side features? Other thought if it is such a total new concept why does the article refer it to being similar to CoD 4 times. In 3 of the only 8 paragraphs it makes a reference to how its like CoD. Yeah that sounds completely new and refreshing. Can we not just call it what it is, a CoD clone by the OG's of FPS's?
Why are you guys disagreeing with foxtrot? He's right. This game is awesome, but it changes nothing. Starhawk did a lot of this already and then some. You built the battle around you. It was very good. It changed nothing. What about Tribes? Crysis? These are both awesome games with similar aspects, but changed nothing.
It changes nothing? You obviously aren't in the Alpha trial are you? Name another game where this happens.... Enemy Titan standing guard, I call down my Titan. It lands on the enemy Titan, shattering it to pieces. "INSTANT TITAN KILL" but you wouldn't know anything about how difficult it can be to battle a TITAN would you?
@HugoDrax Starhawk = Actually, you can drop a building, turret, pod, wall, etc. on anything you feel like
@HugoDrax Section 8 and Section 8: Prejudice http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I've played, Gunz, S4 League, Armored Core, Mirrors Edge and a shit ton of other games that have different ways of movement. wasn't hard to get back into cod. Thinking about it have any of you ever played wolf team? That game was freakin cool minus the hackers and pay to win.
Wolf Team was pretty cool. I remember that game. Man, it was kind of an underrated F2P FPS, though.
I may get it on PC.
Love it, but no. It can't be an end if it just borrows a couple mechanics from other games. It has to redefine the genre.
It wont end rehashed shooters. If anything the most popular elements of Titanfall will be adopted and "rehashed" as well. But I wouldn't consider Titanfall a rehash itself. Respawn are blending enough "new" (or borrowed if you like) elements to make Titanfall stand out as something different. I don't want or need it to end COD or any other popular game. I just want it to be awesome. I want it to surpass Quake 3, or at least recapture the exhilaration of that era of FPS. Kinda wish it had interesting guns like those games of my youth though.
Im getting it. I dont care if its 6v6 or its another fps. They made mw2. They know how to make fps games. Plus they threw in all their resources toward a good multiplayer. Forget the singleplayer.
More importantly, they made COD4MW, which is still hands down one of the best online shooters I have ever played.
DICE made BF2. Bioware made ME2. Then look what happened after.
If dice concentrated more on bf3 it could of lasted another 2 years. If they just remade bad company 2 maps in bf3 I would of bought them. num num what im sayin ?
I love Titanfall but i'm very disappointed with 6 vs 6 and AI? seriously AI bots?
Yeah, because it isn't easy enough to kill things in COD just yet......
"From the producers of Call of Duty" Uhhh, you mean the people who created Call of Duty. Basically anyway. "The end of rehashed shooters" Uhhh, no, me tinks not. This is just the beginning of another franchise which will become rehashed. TF doesn't seem all that different from other FPS games we have played before.
It will be good, but no where near good enough to make me regret going with PS4.
this is made by cod devs good thing someone said this cancels pc preorder i hate cod games killstreaks monopoly ystem ill wait tilll i see more footage before i buy it now
they will add ks game will cater the kids who like rewarded for killing 5 enemies in row its what makes cod game child based game does bf have killstreaks nope its better game cuz it
You should really learn how to at least use fullstops, your sentences are so damn hard to read. I'm not actually sure what those first few words are even meant to say, but there aren't any killstreaks in the game, so why would they add them in later on and totally change the gameplay? And I'm not even sure how rewarding someone for getting multiple kills without dying makes it a game for children.
i like TF it has a good balance everything .
Where's New Monday??
On break. He ain't no super human.
lets see how alot of you sony fanboys have a change of heart when TF2 gets released on multiplat.
Same goes for the Microsoft fanboys who might pretend like it was never anything special and instead hype up the next Halo.
I don't recall anyone hyping this game to be the next halo. Do you have multiple links to back your claim?
.......................... I think you need some lessons on how to read.
...well. at least until we see the old annual release of Titanfall-2...3...4....5...6 and so on.
Uh, won't happen. This game took about 4 years of development. Also, EA is just publishing the game, they don't own Respawn and can't put those timelines on them like they can for Battlefield. This will be released in 2 year cycles, stop assuming it will fall in the ways of COD and BF.
I can tell you're in deep with these companies and their future business plans. Are you on their board of directors? Just like every other game, once an engine is completed (hence 4 years) and game is dev'd around said engine it doesnt take another 4 years, or 2, as the hard work is already done. Now if they wish to, they can simply cookie cutter a bunch of crap around and add a new layer of paint and a couple of new meager features, and voila! There you go, you have your annual releases ala CoD and AC etc. It most likely will happen. If it doesn't I'll mail you one of my testicles. Not saying this game wont be cool, but if it sells very well, which I feel it will, then say to hello annual releases. $$$$
Instead of having an adult conversation, you act like a juvenile. Their is no way this will be annual, since Respawn is making the X1 titles, and even COD is two year cycle by DEVELOPER. I have no stock, but activision owns IW and can put those restrictions on that franchise, but respawn is not. Therefore, Respawn can pick up and move to any publisher they choose if EA rubs them the wrong way after Titanfall 1. Do you really think Respawn will come out with Titanfall 2 March 2015!? I wouldn't be surprised if MS tries to buy Respawn to work exclusively for X1 releases. Also, "it most likely will happen" is pure speculation, yet you insult my speculation? That makes absolutely no sense. This game hasn't even been released, yet you are already referring it as a rehashed and milked franchise. You can keep your testicle, I don't swing that way. Respawn isn't EA or Activision, they are their OWN studio and will make decision as they see fit. It has nothing to do with "being in deep with these companies and future business plans", it's called they learned their lesson when they were IW and sold their rights to acitivision. If you think they will go down that road again, with EA, then you really don't understand how business works. It really pissed them off that much where they left COD at it's height to get away from that type of behavior and I highly doubt their plans were to open Respawn and do it all over again but this time with EA.
Wow, really hit a nerve there hey? Sheesh, lighten up man. This N4G the mecca of prepubescent bitching and pernicious nonsense, but I digress. Annual releases? Perhaps you are correct as your argument holds some weight, but we shall see my good man, we shall see. I'll write you in a year from now with either a heart felt apology for my irresponsible ramblings, or to gloat. Well, you're definitely right on one account at least, my testicle would most likely be wasted on you anyway so I humbly retract my offer. Furthermore, my sent testicle would arrive in a jar, fit for your fireplace mantle, in other words, not attached to my person for you to fondle. I bid good day to you sir.
I may pirate it on pc
Unlikely since its a Hawken/ Call of Duty mix shooter.
already played a game like this called starhawk.
Starhawk was way more original than this. And the two games are 100% unrelated.
i agree, but im talking about shooter with mech,
This game is being hyped up (through the media, marketing and consequently most consumers) so much as something revolutionary and new, but I'm pretty confident that once all that hype dissolves post-launch, a more objective analysis will reveal a game that doesn't do a whole lot that can really be called "new." This is one of the problems I have with the gaming industry, and most cultural industries in general: The advertising and marketing makes so many games seem so much more innovative than they actually are, and there's this false perception that games are somehow relentless futurist in their innovation. Games haven't changed much for a very long time, and Titanfall doesn't seem to be doing much about that, despite what the echo chamber of hype surrounding it has to say. The marketing projects into the future, but the actual result stays firmly in the past / eternal present - I feel like there's minimal imaginative and creative effort on the developers part because they're not under pressure to innovate - they can just superficially build on past, established trends - and the marketing team works to hide that fact. Bottom line, I'm sure Titanfall will be fun, but after all is said and done, it will be one third the game the media has made it out to be, and it won't have much historical importance beyond the history of a corporation's fiscal results.
u cant pirate this on pc people its online game purely online even campaign its got online drm out arse if it has local area network play only way u r gonna play this maybe is tunggle but since game is server based it like be trying to pirate diabolo 3 making it run whole game is sent from server to your pc its impossible. i jsut love people who open there mouth no nothing bout how drm works
Oh man, it's great seeing all the people who haven't played the Alpha trash talking it and trying to downplay it (Sony fanboys) and then seeing those who ACTUALLY played it. It's amazing, addicting, constant action, and a breath of fresh air. It's the first shooter since Gears 1 and CODMW4 where I found my self at the edge of my couch at the end of a battle. It really is a great game and I can't wait to see the final polished product.
Your 100% right. I was part of the alpha and it's amazing. The last amazing mp games in my opinion we mw2 and gears 2.halo is fun but not my cup.of tea. Everything slowly started going down hill. I wanted bf4 to be amazin but too glitchy maybe bf5 will be better. But honestly titanfall will be the game to sell x1. It's loads of fun and.competitive and titans are bad.A$$
