What can a film adaptation possibly add to this story?

Literally nothing. There is nothing to gain from this. Everything that needed to be said in the game, has been said. It is an exemplary display of the medium and doesn't need to be altered or changed in any way.

Hell, you might as well consider 'The Road' to be the film version of 'The Last of Us'.

I think if you strip the game down to its core, then yes, the similarities to Call of Duty are certainly there, it is made by Infinity Ward's finest of course. With that said, I think labeling it a clone is misguided.

The formula is still there. The fast pace, the blistering frame-rate, the action and fluidity of movement. I don't think this is the FPS to break the mould, but I do think this will take Call of Duty players away from that game. Titanfall is a game that ...

Don't concern yourself too much with kills early on. I'd recommend testing out game modes like Hardpoint because it's more objective based. Racking up the kill count can be fun, but nothing beats the synergy of a good team that caps flags.

It's not going to reinvent the wheel for the multiplayer FPS, but I can see it definitely taking Call of Duty players away. Should be the next biggest thing. Free-flowing movement, accessible for newcomers but also requires a mastering of controls.

I've been playing the beta extensively and for games like this, visuals don't matter. They get the point across nicely but it's the action that knocks it out of the park.

It hurts that this game is so much fun because the lack of server support in Oceania is killing the experience for us Australians.

It'll be crippling if we don't see any Australian servers up at launch because 150+ ping simply doesn't cut it. What little I've played is very promising, but EA/Respawn will have a PR nightmare if they can't support the Australian crowd properly.

They've been distributing Xbox One codes out to PC players accidentally. I was absolutely ecstatic to see a Titanfall Beta email only to discover that it wasn't for PC.

Two very different kinds of emotions in the space of 10 seconds.

This is a forgiving mindset, but one that still doesn't justify exactly what they are doing here. Stand up for yourself as a gamer and as a consumer. It's okay to say that something isn't good enough because at the end of the day, constructive criticism is what drives a product to be better.

It doesn't matter what the series is. A $40, 2 hour Triple A title is inexcusable and vain. They're expecting fans to just eat that up "because it's MGS"...

I used to replay PSOne demo discs because they offered so much.

If you ever got the Autumn demo release with 'Tomba!', it might as well have been the full game.

I maintain that video-game horror is one of the rawest, liveliest and best way to experience video-games. NOTHING compares to the immersion of a good horror game. A shame that the well has virtually dried up in recent years, but Outlast definitely has its moments and well worth a play.

I feel sorry for those that are frightened to try certain games out, you're missing out on feelings that can't be replicated in any other way :)

Love this kind of comparison. Gaming visuals nowadays don't really have the same kind of generational impact that they did back in the mid-90s or early millennium. Two of the games that absolutely shattered my mind were MGS2 and Final Fantasy VII before it. The opening cutscene of FFVII, seeing it for the first time, would have to be my most unforgettable gaming moment. Of course, seeing the E3 trailer for MGS2 is definitely up there as well. It's a feeling of "I can't believ...

The steam box was never intended to compete against the console market, it can't and it won't. It's designed as a middle-man to get console gamers to dip their feet into PC gaming without the overwhelming sense of "What the hell am I doing building this thing?".

Basically, it cuts out the hassle of designing a PC that fits your budget. With the steam box you have everything built to spec, at a price that won't rip your wallet apart like Alienware, wi...

People need to realise that many aspects of a game's multiplayer are tuned towards the best experience.

6v6 seems small, but in a game like Call of Duty, it's completely appropriate when you look at things like map design, weapon balance, spawn points etc.

If you want to play Battlefield 4 because of the scale, then all power to you, it's designed for that. Titanfall is geared towards fast-paced combat, close-quarters action and versatile movement...

Laughing at "FamilyGuy" being worried about a review potentially dragging the metacritic score down as if it hurts him personally.

Everyone should be allowed to play this game, thus, it gives the consumer an honest, rounded opinion of what might be in their interests.

I can't even tell you how little I care about the Gran Turismo series, it is simply not for me. I'm sure its a great game to the average car or driving enthusiast, but does it ...

GTA V should not take GOTY. Would have to be a two horse race between Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us. Everything else is just okay by comparison.

This comment section is embarrassing. The article is interesting in the sense that it offers a design perspective from a team that also produced a successful console. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm sure if they were to look at the original Xbox in retrospect, they'd take issue with its grotesque appearance.

If the article nitpicked less, it'd be deemed shallow by the vast majority of reactionary users here. Take it for what it is. AN OPINION.

Although both consoles in the long-term will stretch out and deliver, anyone who buys a console at launch is wasting their time and money. Even as an avid player of games on all platforms, you're obviously wasting time with the smallest launch line up for any two consoles ever. By the time March rolls around, you'll probably have a cheaper product and a more extensive library of games to use Playstation Plus or Xbox Live on as well. I'm sure Shadow Fall is a solid title, as well a...

Can people please read articles before buying straight into what they want to hear? That's not a ratio average for every Gamestop store, just his. He says the PS4 is beating it in most stores, which is probably true, but is he really anywhere near correct in his approximation? Probably not.

Let's not forget the source for this is ONE GAMESTOP MANAGER.

People on this website are too easily swayed by article titles and never actually read the content of...

Call of Duty 4 is a rare breed of game and a total classic. Always hoped new iterations of the game would surpass it. So much so that I stuck around with the multiplayer of every title up until MW3, when I knew it was done.

While now the title is overtly complex online, Cod4 had a minimalist and streamlined design that revolutionized online shooters. It's a joy to pick up and play, even now. The maps are just extraordinarily good when you think about it. A masterwork of d...

This is because Jim Sterling doesn't sugarcoat his reviews to coincide with the vast majority of pleb critics.

He legitimately enjoys most of the games in the series, but it doesn't mean he'll give them all a free pass.

Anyone that thought this picture was initially real needs to consult a doctor.
