Destiny looks way more interesting to me. And I say "looks", because obviously I didn't play either of them, so the hell I know ? But I'm much more attracted to Destiny's universe than that of TF, which TO ME, "looks" like COD with mechas.
AceBlazer13  +   471d ago
Sad that you have to stress on the 'looks' to avoid being attacked from certain individuals.

Completely agree though, TF looks so basic. Destiny looks like it has more potential.
ShugaCane  +   471d ago
I'll be attacked anyway lol. But yes, you summed it up. Destiny has more soul and personality, based on the trailers. It's an online game, but developers cared to build a world from scratch, with its lore.

I have a PC that's slightly less powerful than my PS4 and slightly more powerful than the Xbox One. I still doubt I'll be playing Titanfall though. Never cared for CoD or CoD clones because of their cramped environments and twitch based gameplay.

Basic is what made COD4 so good though, then all those perks and that messed up COD, these guys made COD4 and it will be a good MP game

Yes they came up with CoD bit that was already a carbon copy of MoH games they made previously.

Titanfall is a competitive arena based fps though so I don't know why you guys are drawing comparisons with Destiny, which is more of a mmo/ explorative co-op experience.

Titanfall's direct competitors are the likes of COD, Battlefield, Halo etc. In that regard, it might just be the best in its class.

Destiny is in a whole different class really. In fact, youre probably better off comparing Destiny to The Division even if it is a TPS.

Destiny will surely be great, I'll get both of these on my Xbox One. Excuse me though if I see a a whole lot of envy from sony guys hidden behind typical "I dont care about Titanfall" type posts. I didn't care about KZ SF so you won't find me following the game trying to downplay any good press. So really I'll just take the comments from the usual suspects above or below with a huge grain of salt, pfft now trying to promote a multiplat game on a Titanfall thread they never miss an opportunity, its clearly in their nature to always be so negative about anything xbox related and wave pom poms whenever a sony drops a average screenshot of any ps4 exclusive.

If preorder sales hold true Xbox One version is killing pc and 360. 360 will sell given the huge fanbase but the fact it's not being directly dev'd by Respawn and a bit delayed hurts it. As for pc truth is despite some always trying to hype pc versions, history shows the pc versions always sell considerably less than its xbox countetpart making Xbox One version literally where most gamers will be getting their Titanfall fix from daily. Titanfall definitely "looks" like alot of fun and to add there has been awards and a avalanche of PRAISE FROM MEDIA AND TONS OF GAMES WHO HAVE ACTUALLY PLAYED TITANFALL vs Destiny who is a ways off and hasn't had hands on or very much shown of the games.

I have to agree. Destiny does look more like a real game people can get into. Titanfall's only appeal is CoD + Vertical + Botkillstreak mech drop. Not saying that is all bad though CoD has long held the crown over Quake for top Arena FPS shooter. I personally get tired of Arena FPS games, but even Battlefield wants to have some arena combat in its games with smaller game types, and maps. I like Open range maps like what Halo has offered in past titles. Destiny may be MMOFPS with a story element, but even Planetside 2 has some arena combat plans. Go here @3:19 = Competitive multiplayer is in Destiny. http://www.youtube.com/watc...

I believe honestly alot of sleeper FPS titles could innovate multiplayer as well. We still don't have a clear picture of everything that is releasing in 2014 just yet.

I dare anyone to look at TF and take out the mechs and the people running on walls and tell me what TF looks and plays like and its not even funny how the game is basically COD and you all know this So I don't see it setting a Bar in my opinion.
dedicatedtogamers  +   471d ago
Please stop with all of the artificial hype. My goodness. If Titanfall is so dang good, then it will prove itself. The more I hear about this game, the less excited I become because so much of the hype feels manufactured.

I think Titanfall looks okay. But what does it do better than its competitors? I'm sure it will be a well-polished game, but the constant praising it as the Second Coming is beyond silly. If this game was coming to PS3 and 360 and PC (and wasn't being used as a next-gen "system seller" ) I guarantee you the hype would be 1/10th what it is right now.
OrangePowerz  +   471d ago
@4show

Why do you think the 360 version is delayed in the first place? I don't buy it that they need to polish the game on the 360 and that's the cause of the delay. I think they delayed it because the rumours that it's not far of the X1 version are true and they just want to sell more consoles.
MysticStrummer  +   471d ago
I don't know what they mean by "look" but that old engine won't be setting any graphical bars, and the gameplay/feel appears to be sci fi CoD so there's not much bar setting going on in those categories either. I'm sure the game will be fun for CoD fans, which is a lot of people after all so it will be successful across three platforms, but MS is just in PR mode here.
UncleGermrod  +   471d ago
basic yes, but i think it could be just enough to shake up a winning formula. all the gameplay i see looks so fluid and it just seems like a really fun game.

destiny deff has my interest as well...it seems a lot like halo, but the way you interact with the world is a much more ambitious idea.

Who are we kidding here this is n4g, nothing positive about XB1 can be said without being downplayed in some way. I guarantee if Destiny was an XB1 exclusive it would be called Halo on another planet, the same way Titanfall was called COD with Mechs after the announcement of it being a Microsoft exclusive. PS bringing Destiny up doesn't hurt XB1 fans, because we will be able to play both. Titanfall will be great and you all need to get over your jealousy, you all supposedly have gaming pc's anyway right. Lol this is an article about Titanfall and all the ps4 fans brought up Destiny, it's getting pathetic.

@Dedicated - Artificial hype? You could throw that connotation on any game that has a lot of positive news. MS seems excited, but where/who did the majority of good press about this game come from? During E3 where it took home many awards.. Also, the majority of people who have played the game have rave reviews and are super excited for this game. Why is it a bad thing if a company is happy about an upcoming game and there excited about the potential.

Those of us who have not played it do not know how it will turn out, but from the looks of everything and the reviews from those who play it; it seems like it will be a very good game. How it will do against it's competitors? Not sure and I could care less. I never worried about that kind of stuff. I'll leave that to the companies that develop games and make console. I never thought how will a Mario game compete against the next Sonic, Halo vs KZ, etc.

Also, thats what companies do...promote (hype if you want) their games especially there big games. It's a double edge sword to. Because if you heavily promote a game and it does not do well...then you know what happens.

On topic, I'm looking forward to this game and hope to get into the beta. I've look at most of the videos and I like what I see.

Titanfall does have a lot potential to break down many barriers. Hopefully it brings a lot of innovation with it's formula to let it top CoD and raise that bar. It does look like another CoD with mechs but at the same time, it's good for competition as it's doing something CoD developers never had the balls to do...which is to expand and really change the battlefield. Hope that it gives new ideas like for example having a great leveling system like CoD4 did with unlocking weapons and perks, setting a bar there for multiplayer in shooters.

As for Destiny, I prefer it because of it's universe, style, and co-op and not sure how PvP will work out but I'm sure it's going to be like Halo with more complex mechanics. They're separate games but I did say it before, rather pick Destiny because it's raising a bar, too in many ways. It's pretty much Bungie's talent going all out, not being tied to just Halo but rather creating a larger world centered for you, the player.

I'm in the same boat as you. Destiny interests me more than Titanfall and currently I'm planning on building a 500$ gaming PC. With that configuration if I'm interested in playing Titanfall I can do so without buying an Xbox One. But I'm more interested in building this PC for MMOs.

Does titanfall annoy you? You have the option to skip buying it so pls stop with the hate. First it was cod with mechs, the clouds, 6 vs 6, crap ai, 720p,its also on 360 and pc, ill just get it on my pc and now its destiny looks way better....wth? Give it a rest guys.if you dont like it then move on.

Titanfall may look like cod with mechs to you but it doesnt make it less fun.its great to play, confirmed by hundreds who have actually played it and a winner of so many awards already..people love this game, and i actualy believe its going to set a multiplayer standard, so pls do refrain from stealth trolling.

"there are no bragging rights to be held bragging about a "MULTIPLATFORM" game on MS and PS platforms."

Only three things can be bragged about a multiplat.

1. If it runs better on one system than the other.
2. If one version has exclusive content and the other does not.
3. If one version gets DLC before another version.

I'm just speaking in general terms here but besides that I agree with you.

This article has everything to do with Destiny though.. I'm not a Titanfall hater nor a PS fanboy but Microsoft mentioned setting the bar so high it won't be matched for a while.. obviously it was meant as hype but that leaves itself wide open to be compared to pretty much every MP game in production. Destiny stands out as the MP game many people are excited for and a breath of fresh air in a somewhat stagnant genre so it's only natural it would get mentioned in an article like this.
Farmassy  +   470d ago
Hey guys what do you know? Who would have guessed that Newmonday is in a titanfall article with the sole purpose of downplaying the game?

Its getting pathetic. It is going to be a great game so you should just get over it. For someone who isn't interested in titanfall you sure do look at a lot of articles about it and write a lot of comments.

Why do you keep doing it? Do you hate yourself? You have given yourself a life where you need to actively seek out and disagree with something simply because you will not have it. It is honestly very sad

These kind of statements are typically not good PR moves. MS should be more reserved because even if Titanfall is a great game, these kind of statements can make the hype a whole other entity of its own. The idealized Titanfall and the realized Titanfall might meet MS expectation, but it might not meet the expectations of the gamer that buys into all the hype expecting something that is well beyond something they have ever experienced before. Let's be realistic, it is still on a screen, requires a controller to play, and involves attempting to kill AI or Human players in a large, albeit set parameter arena. I don't think its possible for it to be so good that it will take a long time to match. That is just MSBS.
N2NOther  +   471d ago
Let's put it this way. Has there been a game that has matched Call of Duty in terms of success or influence? Nope. Like it or not, Call of Duty set a bench mark for online MP and has influenced tons of games after it and yet none of the games it has influenced has matched it.

Take any hate of the franchise out of the equation and this is undeniably true.

Titanfall is expected to be the next game to do this.

I just don't get the comparisons. Especially because anyone with a PC, XB1, or 360 will likely get both games anyway.
Hicken  +   471d ago
Probably has something to do with the claim of it being far superior to every other multiplayer game coming out, which includes Destiny.

People are countering that Destiny had their interest more. Regardless of the specific type of game, this statement tales a shoot at multiplayer, period. Does it not make sense for someone to being up other multiplayer games? It's not even a comparison, directly. Just an opinion on which seems more interesting.

in fact u have no idea of what games are u talking about...

titanfall competitive multiplayers arenas...

so how can both games look to u dosnt really matter coz TO U..they can look as everything u want coz u didnt understand how both games works

if u need to make the first post just to beat down some ms exclusive...just do it with a brain...

coz in this way u win just bubble down for trolling

ps. to the artificial hype..
everyone in the industry that playe dand seen titanfall been excited from the day one....so pls ...if ui dont want play and wanna play other games...just do it ..without trying to change the reality

pss. destiny come to the xb1,ps4,wii u, and maybe to pc

http://www.gamespot.com/art...

http://www.gamespot.com/art...

and im already telling u if is true that come also on pc ..this isnt a remake of an old console game..like tomb raider was....that they had to put NICER things on the video to make ppl buy the game again...
destiny is being developed knowing already all the platforms..and will take advantage of them
so IF IS TRUE THAT IT COME is 100% sure that the best version of Destiny will be on pc ...

The bots are there to make it easier for people to get kills. They are designed to be cannon fodder so people feel good about themselves and think they are really good players.

Destiny is different type of MP.

ITPython  +   470d ago
Obviously MS is going to hype this game to hell and back. I bet that either slightly before, or after Titanfall releases, we are going to see nearly every bag of chips, soda can/bottle, and fast food place flooded with "Win an XB1 and/or Titanfall!" giveaways.

This will accomplish 3 goals for MS:

1. This essentially advertises the heck out of the game. Anybody who eats chips, drinks sodas, or likes McDonalds, will become very aware of Titanfall.

2. All the consoles and copies of TF they give away, they count as sales. Padding their numbers significantly.

3. With those padded numbers, MS will use it as ammo to show the world that despite heavy hitting games coming out on the PS4 in the same month as Titanfall, the XB1 managed to 'keep up'. Giving the illusion that the console is successful and doing well.

Might seem far fetched, but come on, this s MS, we know they are capable of doing whatever it takes to convince the world that the XB1 is the right choice. And I mean WHATEVER it takes.

TACOBELL gave away free playstation 4 systems for FREE. Did I mention they were giving away for FREE
ITPython  +   469d ago
Yeah, they had that one giveaway. But the difference between Sony and MS is that Sony doesn't need to pad their numbers and has the integrity not to do so. Unlike MS, who has proved time and again that they have no ethical or legal boundaries when it comes to getting their way.

Sony had the taco bell giveaway to let people get a PS4 before it was released, which was pretty awesome of them! MS only had the giveaways to pad their numbers for November and December to make it appear as if the XB1 was 'competing' during the holiday season. And I wouldn't be surprised if most, if not all, of the ones winning these giveaways were actually MS employees who put the consoles back on the market and counted it as two sales.

Nothing is beyond MS at this point, they are as low as a company can go in terms of sleaziness, lies, and deception. They took a page right out of the current US administrations book because they saw how well it was working, and figured they could apply the same tactic.

Luckily the gamers aren't quite buying into it as much as MS hoped, but every legitimate XB1 sold proves that it is working to some extent.

Microsoft need to understand a lot of people will go by they watch and not what they play. If Microsoft want to attract sales for the Xbox one it has to look like it does something completely different.
At the moment it just looks good and even by the few videos it's quite obvious that Respawn did't want to venture to far from their rooted control scheme.
I like the look of the game but when your on foot it does control like COD which can be clearly seen.
I was kind of expecting a bit more weight to the controls judging by subject of the game, I was also expecting a lot of destruction in the environments also due to the subject matter but like COD there seems to be little of that.
Don't get me wrong I would probably buy it if I had an Xbox one but I won't buy a console for it, a few 360 owners will be attracted.
Like others say when I watch Destiny and 'The Division' I'm far more interested as their multiplayer aspects look far more appealing and offer a greater depth.
Titanfall will succeed but like Activision, EA won't be able to resist bleeding it to death and there will be another game right around the corner, year on year.
I kind of wish EA were not the publishers, not only for the benefit of the 'IP' but for the benefit of the gamers as well....

And to those getting Destiny BC "Titanfall is COD with Mechs". How do you think most long time xbox gamers feel about Destiny? it's just an online halo to me. Even the enemies feel like Halo in my opnion

Hive=Flood
Fallen=Elites with extra arms
Cabal=Hunter
Vex= Forerunners/Prometheans

Even though I know I will end up buying destiny because of Bungie I haven't seen anything "wow" me "yet though"

I was just thinking the same thing. I'm a long time halo fan, and to me, Destiny looks like Halo Online RPG....and that's not a bad thing! It's a new experience within a familiar art style...I don't drool when I see it, but I know it will be tons of fun...

I've long grown tired of COD, but when I see Titan Fall, I badly want to play it because it does offer a new experience.

Not saying the game is bad, but the hype behind is ridiculous.

I don't forget this guys ruing MP for many games by spoiling nobs with COD.

I though it was Activision but after seen bots for easy kills and still twitch cheap control's on TF this guys have lost respect.

You can all disagree or agree but CoD is extremely popular among both casuals and the hardcore.

From what I gather of Titanfall, it looks like CoD with previously mentioned above, mechs and parkour.

That said, titanfall could be the new CoD.. Time will show..
SasukeX16  +   471d ago
That's because it's multiplatform while Titan is microsoft exclusive.

Let me guess, you don't like MP only games?
4ShotKing  +   471d ago
Of course, 80+ Awards, Best of Show at every event, just CoD with Mechs and Parkour, like the last two features don't attribute or contribute any sort of difference nor are they the only new additions; campaign MP narrative, Cloud AI, Maps designed to allow parkour without touching the ground, Mechs being agile and more human-like than previous Mechs which are slow and heavy. I don't know a single MP FPS that's been more ambitious or innovative than Titanfall since CoD4, feel free to tell me? I'm looking forward to Destiny as well, but far as I can tell, Destiny is just Borderlands with public events (Which was from Guild Wars 2 BTW) so I guess we write off that game as well as not genre defining? *Facepalm*

Starhawk was a third person shooter, but it has the mechs, jetpacks, and dropping players and mechs from the sky. It also had an RTS feature where you build the battleground as you play. Plus, the mechs could fly. The only thing from Titanfall it didn't have was the parkour, like Brink. However, it did have massively vertical game play. I'm excited for Titanfall, but I think calling it innovative is a slap in the face to Lightbox.
4ShotKing  +   471d ago
Did Starhawk have Parkour or maps designed around parkour so you can wall run or double jump the entire map without touching the ground? Nope.

No innovative movement system (Check)

Did Starhawk have a campaign MP narrative? Nope

No campaign MP narrative (Check)

Did Starhawk have Cloud AI on the field to combine MOBA and FPS together? Nope

No AI or MOBA integration in Starhawk (Check)

Where the Mechs in Starhawk mobile and agile? Nope

Slow and heavy Mechs in Starhawk (Check)

Did Starhawk have exciting new entrances or endings to the MP matches like Titanfall? Nope

No exciting intros or outros to MP matches for Starhawk (Check)

Starhawk and Titanfall are 2 completely different games, it's like saying, Killzone 3 is like Halo 4 because both had Mechs in them, guarantee you both games play completely oppositely.
Ddavis513  +   471d ago
Nothing against titansfall at all but didn't battlefield 2142 on PC have mechs. I played all the battlefields and still think 2142 was the most ambitious MP game. It had titans(ships) and hover tanks and launch pods and mechs. That Shiiz was fun to play back in my high school days. I'll prob get TF for my gaming rig since I own a ps4 and don't buy consoles for just 1 game. I hope titan fall succeeds since competition leads to better games and maybe battlefield and other fps franchises will get off their comfortable asses and make good games instead of glorified beta patch fests like battlefield and COD.
Frodosmugins  +   471d ago
TF will be the new COD.. already hearing casuals talking about it like its the best thing since sliced bread...

Obviously M$ marketing team knows where to hype games..

Gamers obviously see through M$ like glass!

I have so many other games to play this year starting with Dark Souls2!!

Titanfall is a clone of Call of Duty.....in Titanfall when you kill so many bots you get a care package and unlike in CoD where there could be anything in the care package you will get one of only 3 in the game Titans. They are not reinventing the wheel here. It's a game lets play it and stop with self hype and the paid hype.
mhunterjr  +   471d ago
It's has a similar arts style to COD, but really it doesn't play like COD. I really don't understand the 'COD with mechs' analogy, because the to gameplay dynamics between the two franchises are drastically different.

From a weapons stand point, in order to maintain balance, the infantry in Titan fall have access to significantly more fire power and ammunition than in COD. The added verticality, coupled with infantry mobility leads to a drastically different map design theory. The addition of player controlled /AI driven mechs will lead to strategies and play styles unseen in any COD game.

So while it undoubtedly looks like COD with mechs. There's more than enough variation to the formula to feel confident that the experience between the two franchises will feel very different.

TristanPR77  +   471d ago
I understand this is just Microsoft making some generic hype but Destiny will easily put Titanfall on the shadows. Destiny looks more interesting to me than playing once again call of duty but with bots.
FanboyKilla  +   470d ago
im tired of hearing you sony ponies talking about destiny just because you can play it on ps4. this is about MULTIPLAYER!! destiny has been pushed baaaack. good luck waiting on it while im stomping around in my titan lol. Multiplayer baby, something you sony ponies know little about. infamous single player the order (sounds corny) single player sigh. you can play it on pc though and microsoft will appreciate your support. lol help fund my games sony ponies.

Ohhhk, that explains why you're in aTitanfall article. Makes sense.
DJustinUNCHAIND  +   471d ago
The downplay of Titanfall by people who won't be able to easily play the game is hilarious.

The best being "CoD with jet packs, free running, and mechs."

Basically, you're admitting that the games don't look similar at all.

If a game has a certain facet to it, for example, a fast-paced FPS, and you add, change, tweak or balance game play mechanics, then it is not the same thing at all.
Unreal01  +   471d ago
Most people can play it though, but I agree with what you're saying.

Theirs alot of hate on this game because of the exclusive rights, but it does look like a lot of fun. I'm a PlayStation/ PC fan so i can understand the frustrations fellow PlayStation fans have, but also will welcome this game to my PC collection with open arms.

Only hyping Destiny as they can play it on their PS4. Saying its just COD with Mechs is ridiculous. You can compare every FPS to COD if you want.

Battlefield = COD with vehicles
Killzone = COD set in future
Halo = SciFi COD

Its just a really dumb thing to say. Its an fps and every fps has similarities it the parkour and mechs that make the difference in Titanfall and the gameplay will be different than COD for those exact reasons
cr33ping_death  +   471d ago
i dare you to play Battlefield the way you play COD and see what happens...i guarantee you you wont last long. you need team support in BF unlike COD where 1 person can take out and entire team with all of the BS perks and killstreak rewards
IRNMUNKEY  +   471d ago
That was kind of my point! It will play differently to COD.
Allsystemgamer  +   471d ago
Actually none of those are remotely like cod.

Play Titanfall. It DOES play exactly like cod with verticality and mechs.

Not that it's bad but it is basically COD.
Genki  +   471d ago
I'm not sure what the folks at Microsoft are smoking, but this game doesn't look THAT impressive.
ger2396  +   471d ago
This a shooter that resembles cod. Its going to sell very well. Microsoft's best selling games have always been shooters. I don't why all the hate for this game. Microsoft is only giving its fan base what they want.

People spends most time around something they don't want or like here on N4g....u know I prefer Xbox 1 and I don't post on ps4 articles at all unless they both count as ps4/xb1 article. I spend my time looking for things am interested in, hence the reason am in this thread....

Titanfall is shaping up to be a great game... needs no validation from you N4g experts

Either u do or u don't...... but if u don't....why are u here again ?????????????

Well I know a journalist who played Titanfall on Friday at an event in London (embargo early next week) and he told me that while Titanfall is a lot of fun to play, graphically it looks very disappointing on both PC and Xbox One. He said the fact that it runs 720p on Xbox One makes it feel more like it's running on Xbox 360 and this the latest build.
Chris12  +   471d ago
Rather than listening to your trolling I think I'll wait for the embargo to be lifted this week and see what the real journalists think of the game.
cruzngta  +   471d ago
Like it or not this game will do well. There are so many shooters out today that it is near impossible to 'reinvent' the genre overnight with any new attempt. All you can ask for anymore is that a new shooter plays smoothly, is fun and now with the next gen level of power looks really good. I will be getting this for my X1 and am looking forward to it having played the beta. This has the potential to become a monster if the gameplay and the online work seamlessly. Will just have to wait and see. On the other hand I think Destiny will be a monster due to Bungie making the game and the release on all platforms to help sell well and get everyone playing it.
Allsystemgamer  +   471d ago
How can you play the beta when the beta hasn't been released yet
