A video and some quick impressions from the Xbox One version of Titanfall which is currently running its Beta phase.
newb cod player lol, bad player
WOW! Look at this very generic shooter. This is what the Xbone is hoping to push them over the edge with? This is so laughable. Just after watching the one match, there really doesn't seem to be anything to make me wanna play a round of this game. Bad announcing, basic sound, just a bad game. Glad I have my PS4!
What defines a shooter as 'generic'? How does Titanfall fall under this 'generic' category? What shooter game will you be playing instead of Titanfall? And lastly, how does the shooter game you're going to play instead not fall under this 'generic' category? Answer all questions please!
@logicstomper I'll gladly answer these questions for you. First off where's the variety in this game? Shoot, shoot,shoot jump in titan until it blows up and repeat. Yeah like that won't get old extremely fast.Same old CoD formula. Just added robots and bot players and they make you think it's new. The sound is just so basic and don't even get me started on the crappy graphics (looks like a PS2 game visually). I've been playing BF4 since release on my PS4 and just bought premium and I couldn't be happier. I have tanks, jets, jeeps, helis, attack boats, jetskis, and more shotguns, sniper rifles, marksman rifles, smg's, and assault rifles than I can begin to count. Not to mention, all the tags, camos and attachments to go with all the weapons also. Ok so please tell me just how much better Titanfall is than that. I'll wait.....
@OVOXO_Mike "Ok so please tell me just how much better Titanfall is than that. I'll wait....." Well one thing will be if TitanFall works come release.... I mean that would be beneficial right? "First off where's the variety in this game? Shoot, shoot,shoot jump in titan until it blows up and repeat." Please tell me how this does not apply to everything that follows in your comment about BF4? You've made a case against EVERY multiplayer shooter rather than just TitanFall. "I've been playing BF4 since release on my PS4 and just bought premium and I couldn't be happier." ... You're opinion is downright stupid. Owning BF4 is the utmost enjoyment your PS4 can bring you? All I have to say: https://encrypted-tbn1.gsta...
Sorry for the wait, I've been revising for an exam so haven't had too much time (although technically N4G is part of my revision *hint *hint what I'm doing now). "First off where's the variety in this game? Shoot, shoot,shoot jump in titan until it blows up and repeat. Yeah like that won't get old extremely fast.Same old CoD formula." Okay let's start. The subject is generic shooters. Now you're saying "where's the variety" and that it's "Shoot, shoot,shoot jump in titan until it blows up and repeat." Well if shooting defines a generic shooter, doesn't this make the ENTIRE shooter genre generic? Every shooter game consists of shooting, it's what defines the shooting genre, so calling a game generic because of what defines it as a shooter is silly. Logical failure here. Also, how do titans make shooters generic? Last I checked, Killzone doesn't have titans. The Last of Us doesn't have titans. Halo Doesn't have titans. CoD doesn't have titans. Battlefield doesn't have titans. So how does this make it generic? You seemed to jump straight to conclusions without supporting evidence of why titans make it generic. "Just added robots and bot players and they make you think it's new." Have you played another shooter that has AI and titans in the multiplayer with vertical free-running and jet-packs all in one? I believe you're using the definition of new as a reason for why it's not new. Here are some analogies for understanding the concept: 1) When tablets first came out, they were new right? Well guess what, they were just small computers with a touchscreen. Then surely when tablets first came out, they weren't new right? 2) How about some toy from a new cartoon. You would have seen the cartoon, and you know toys exist, so what's new with this toy from said cartoon? So the point here is that you can take bits from here and there, to make something new. New does not necessarily mean everything about it has never been seen before. "The sound is just so basic and don't even get me started on the crappy graphics (looks like a PS2 game visually)." Please keep away from attacking just because you want to and stick to the discussion. By the way, even if this were the discussion, there are again, no supporting evidence, just empty claims. "shotguns, sniper rifles, marksman rifles, smg's, and assault rifles than I can begin to count. Not to mention, all the tags, camos and attachments to go with all the weapons also." This sounds exactly like CoD, so if this is the constituents of a not-generic shooter, CoD would be a non-generic shooter? Well 90% of N4G believe this is not true. The difference (according to your statements) then, are these additional vehicles. " I have tanks, jets, jeeps, helis, attack boats, jetskis, " With what you've given, this is what defines the generic CoD with the non-generic BF. But hold on a second, didn't you just say Titanfall was generic because it's shooting with titans (robot vehicles)? Have we just hit a contradiction here? Have you mis-defined generic, so that all shooters fall under this 'generic' category? Or are you saying all shooters are generic? If you will, you can re-define what makes a shooter generic so that we can reach a conclusion, because so far you've either contradicted yourself or called every shooter a generic shooter.
i think just like a new games in the introduction phase, the hype level is strong, maybe a bit overboard.... This one is even stronger since that CoD fanboy site IGN is hypin it up as well.. People need to really sit back and wait for the IGN's of the world to stop strokin this game and see whats really up with this game.. it may end up like a crappy like recent CoD games..
Textures and animations are just so poor and ugly.
Pretty sure that's the last thing i'm thinking about when playing the game and fighting two mechs at once and catching missiles mid flight and sending them back at enemies. SUBSTANCE>style. Period.
@crossingeden Well when it looks like shit doing it, that's when you'll notice it
If graphics don't matter, then it won't be a system seller. Everyone will just get the 360 version.
Two words: low quality. I'll stick with crysis 2 on PC And ghosts on ps4. Ouch.
Watching these clips actually makes me want to boot up Ghosts again.
The game looks ok but to me it looks like cod with robots. Not saying it won't be good because it looks like it plays smooth and it depends on how they innovate things
Doesn't every FPS these days just look like CoD without robots or did I miss something innovative in the FPS genre in the past 7 years or so.
I agree looks like cod with robots Yet again seen something and playing it is different Maybe it will be more interesting ones I get my hands on it While I was watching this video I was picturing all the cod kids camping waiting for their titans to spawn lol
Omg that guy is terrible...he should give me his beta key
LMFAO at the hilariously bad / broken AI at 1:10.
Even the guy on IGN said if he's seriously competitively playing this game, he'd mainly use his mech as a distraction and only play in human form... exactly what I was thinking watching these videos. I'd rather be smaller and faster using jetpacks and jumping off walls than be confined to a big mech. So that'd be AI Mech with AI bots...cool. that's like an 85/15 ratio of bots to humans. Weak.
Dat A.I. tho...
Its the cloud;they say that bad..Bad..BAd..BAD..AI its only achieved using the cloud!Really who with a right mind will buy this game paying $60,69.99€..with this kind of farming AI that completly ruins what ever this game is trying to achieve for the good and for the bad.Good for noobs!
I agree the AI is terrible. I am curious as to where you read the AI uses the cloud. Respawn specifically stated the cloud is not used for AI. Or maybe I just misunderstood what you said, IDK.
^ If that is true Rockstar then the cloud has about as much power as a fart on a breezy day.
^ No argument here!
ive watched a few beta vids now... that ai is a special level of stupid. it turns a great concept into garbage. theres no skill! I watched a vid by driftor...he's a geniune good cod player. yet in this game this guy in the video and driftor get same amount of kills and no deaths or almost. it's horrible if you wanted a nice competitve shooter.... ironically, if youve ever played fear 2 or was it 3? The mechs you can use play identical to this! it's like a super phoned in cod with mechs! granted, it looks fun! i'd enjoy it - except i like my games to last a while. i'd be bored to tears from this game after a week!
I feel like Hawken set a standard for mech gameplay. I just didnt get the same warm fuzzy watching this. Fusing the 2 genres together is a great idea (first person shooter and Mechs) but I think you would need to nail both parts instead of 50/50. It would have to be Battlefield and Hawken combined. This looks like Cod and Armored Core. I will reserve further judgment until I play it.
looks fun, but also like it would get old quickly as it resembles CoD textures and animations=garage hit detection sounds remind me of mag, which is just a generic sound a map full of titans=stupid. Only a random selection should be available for titans if you're not going with the top 1 or 2 for each side... map layout was bland The first and only feature I was looking for was aim assist. It's hard to tell if there was any with the video lagging/skipping for me occasionally. If they even announce aim assist when this game or a variation comes to ps4 I will not be buying it.
It has aim assist just like CoD, at least when you are running around as a pilot. I saw it in a few of the xbox one vids. Titanfall has basically been made for casuals who think CoD is too hardcore.
There is kill streaks? How can you even argue this isn't a cod clone?
Where is the innovation? I mean i played with robots on killzone 3, the AI looks terrible, i'm still trying to figure what's so amazing about this game. I know that watching gameplay online is not the same as playing the game, but still.. this game doesn't look anything special to me. (I stopped caring about CoD after Modern Warfare, even when i got 2, and 3, so maybe it's because im a bit bored of this kind of games. I still will wait till i can try it, idk if in some friend house or pc.
If you feel that way when watching the videos you will feel the same when you play the game. Titanfall is a more casual version of CoD. It has the generic gameplay that has grown very stale by now. That fact that they are marketing this game as something revolutionary boggles my mind. Deathmatch, TDM, and Domination? Give me a break. Also, the AI is as bad as the AI in Brink. For me Titanfall gets filed into the ever growing pile of over-hyped, underwhelming games.
