What Respawn And Titanfall Can Teach The Industry About Next-Gen Development

Polygon "It’s amazing what you can put together when you’re leaving the developer and publisher of some of the most successful first-person shooters in the industry’s history."

Teach? come on Titanfall isn't doing anything new, it's just mech vs mech with some wall jumping players on the ground

6 vs 6 on small maps with AI enemies is sooooooo revolutionary

Edit: I just noticed it's a Lolygon article, no sh!t they're hyping a XB1 game "the developer and publisher of some of the most successful first-person shooters in the industry’s history" lol

Time will show, 6 months from Titanfall will be forgotten about (much like Ryse) Destiny will come out and take a huge amount of Titanfall players

Was gonna say something like that myself but decided not to because am sure that it will be marked as trolling. The mods here have a hard on for me lol.

Hellsvacancy1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

What's wrong with sharing my opinion, i'm not "trolling" or looking for agrees/bubbles

I disagree with the author and have pointed out why, that's not trolling

OiNioB1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

Read the Article :/,

The author states how the game is good for having no micro-transactions and focusing on a MP only approach while not worrying about the pressure of stock holders.

Allowing the Devs to focus on and create the game they want rather then going for that $.

It also states how this is a positive for future games like The Order 1886 as well, which focuses on making a great single player experience.

"some mech vs mech with some players on the ground" you could simplify any game like that to help your argument, but its still a poor argument.

Halo is just some red vs blue dudes running around shooting. cod is just some dudes running around. BF4 is just 64 people shooting randomly with no tactics. mario is just a game where you jump on shit. your (much like ryse) comment clearly paints you as a pathetic sony fanboy who is afraid of good games on other platforms

Hellsvacancy1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

Yeah your right, not aboot the " pathetic sony fanboy" I can't be that much of a fanboy because i've yet to even buy a PS4

As for the rest of your comment, the games you've pointed out are not trying to be more than what they are, TitanFall is being touted to be some kind of ground breaking, revolutionary, never played before type of game, although it's not

Like the author said "What Respawn And Titanfall Can Teach The Industry About Next-Gen Development" like other developers need teaching anything from Respawn

You havent played the game have you? or i guess INFAMOUS is doing many great new things right? bro the control and feel and fuidity of everything from jumping and wallrunning on anything to jumping on a Titans back without pressing 1 button is way more than most FPS's are doing these days, why must we dismiss and criticize games that are trying to breath new life into thier respected genres and trying something new just because of some made up pathetic fanboy defence mechanism based solely on insecurity and ignorance? i guess some people just arent gamers at heart........... sad

cyguration1711d ago

What? WHAT?!

Titanfall is Brink + Blacklight. There's nothing you can do in Titanfall you can't do in those two games. Where have you been?

Hellsvacancy1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

Oh dear, I don't think i've ever once praised inFamous, I don't particularly like the games, same for goes for Uncharted (LOVED TLOU)

By your logic i'm just a hater because i'm also showing no love (nor anyone else for that fact) for the new Wolfenstein game, maybe that's because it looks like generic crap, Titanfalls into that category

I'm 30 years old this year, been gaming since i was 7 or 8, i've played MANY games, by now my brain KNOWS what it likes the looks of and what it doesn't, Titanfall looks to be a game I would get bored of within a month, the multiplayer for TLOU only lasted me 2-3 months before I got bored and moved on

Not allowed opinions in the internet are we without upsetting some soppy mofo

razrye1711d ago

You have misunderstood me. I know that it isn't a trolling comment. I agree with it. It's just that if I write anything even remotely against anything to do ms I get marked as trolling.

bennissimo1711d ago

In its alpha build, Titanfall was one of the most enjoyable game experiences I've had on any platform in a very, very long time.

Skipping it is your loss.

SasukeX161711d ago

Not for people who don't like it at all.

tuglu_pati1711d ago

funny how is just the usual Sony enthusiast saying the game isn't doing anything new. I guess is a N$G regular day.

Magicite1711d ago

Titanfall is more like something between 6th and 7th gen.

maniacmayhem1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

What does the gameplay of Titanfall have anything to do with Respawn teaching the industry how development should be done?

The article is talking about how Respwan didn't have to compromise their vision of the game. They made exactly the game they wanted, the author also commends them on making a game without microtransactions something this team could have implemented easy. Something common to EA and no doubt EA would have loved to have in this game.

The author also commends the devs of Order:1886 for also focusing on their own vision of the game.

Never did this article talk about the game being revolutionary. So why bring in gameplay which has been repeatedly discussed and debated in other on topic articles?

This is why so many people on this site get so much flack. A lot of people instantly go into attack mode for a game they have no interest in without reading the actual article.

Just try to be different without changing the core shooter gameplay. I really like titanfall, got the beta on my pc not on my xbox one but I'm really enjoying it. Even though I still think the smart pistol is annoying. Gonna buy maybe not day 1 but surely.

darksky1711d ago

I guess they can teach the industry how NOT to develop for next gen...

Debaitable1711d ago

I'm still waiting for them teach me on why having A.I. is better than having human players

lolCHILLbro1711d ago

to add life and immersion to the world and the enviroment they are creating?

Debaitable1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

There's plenty of videos up now and in nearly every video I've seen when the player sees the A.I., the A.I. doesn't even shoot and gives a blank stare. What kind of immersion do you get out of that? I'll still end up buying it for PC but I was told to wait and see about the A.I. I waited. I saw. I'm disappointed.

Not every games has to be BF4 size but they could of made maps catering to 8v8 or 10v10 so you encounter more human players than A.I.

Biggest1711d ago

Add life by adding lifeless nothings? That's doesn't make much sense.
