Titanfall was the best damned thing we saw at E3 | Gaming Trend

Gaming Trend: "We sat down with Steve Fukuda and Joel Elmsley to see Titanfall, live and unscripted – a point well-proven as Fukuda pulled back the curtain, literally, to show the rest of the Respawn team in another room to fill out the rest of the live player match. The game is billed as two games in one – Titan warfare and small-scale gameplay, seamlessly welded together. The demo mode we got to see is called Hardpoint. The MCOR and IMC factions are battling over a refuel point deep in enemy territory. With Joel Elmsley playing as callsign “Roughneck” and Steve Fukuda launching lead as 'Gunslinger', we kicked off the carnage."

5 Better games:
Metal Gear Solid V
The Division
Watch Dogs
Final Fantasy 15
Kingdom Hearts 3

Titanfall looks like MW2 with mechs. Which could be fun, but isn't all that original except for the mechs gimmick.

Hufandpuf2550d ago

KH3 only showed 3 seconds of probable gameplay, so how is it better?

matgrowcott2550d ago

@Hufandpuf

Hype and brand recognition.

I think the Jet pack and the fact you can run on the walls was quite cool as well.

CrossingEden2550d ago

look up the definition of the word opinion -_-

I_am_Batman2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

I don't get the hype for Titanfall at all. It looked generic to me. I'm not hating on it I just don't understand why everyone is so excited for it.

My most anticipated games of E3:

1. Infamous: Second Son
2. Final Fantasy XV
3. Knack
4. Watchdogs
5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

@ I am batman

How more generic can you get when 3 games on your list are sequels and one of them is on it's 15th and that does not include all the other FF games out there.

DA_SHREDDER2550d ago

Agreed Donnieboi. I would have easily said the game looked amazing if I hadn't already played mech games online like in Killzone 3. Yeah being in a mech is supercool for like 15 mins then you realize its just as easy to die, if not faster while your in a big ass mech. Wait till people start getting pwned and cant even get in their mechs without essentially getting everyone's attention. Unless the mechs can turn invisible?! Also, there is like no back story to this game, online only ftw?!

I_am_Batman2550d ago

@darx: What does it have to do with sequels? Infamous is an open world super hero game. A type of game that is rarely done on the quality level of Infamous. Sucker Punch is always improving from game to game a lot so I expect a lot of new elements to the core of the genre.

Final Fantasy XV looks very fresh. You could consider every new FF game a new IP anyway cause the only thing they share is the name and the genre (except for X-2, XIII-2, XIII-3).

MGS V goes open world so there will be a lot of new key elements.

TomShoe2550d ago

DonFreezer2550d ago

Shut your mouth.Let me guess the games are Killzone, Infamous, Drive Club,Knack and The Witness?Titanfall was the best of E3 by quite a margin.The only game that could take away the hype from the COD train.And I don;t even play fps games.

Ju2550d ago

It looked interesting. But unfortunately not on the console of my choice otherwise I could actually play it.

It's not that big of a loss and hopefully will be on PS4 eventually (considering it's Source Engine it might even come to the PS3).

But other than that CoD heritage is clearly visible. But it's a 7v7 game, has no campaign but some "AI bots" mixed in. I wonder if what we saw is smoke and mirrors. It certainly enriches CoDs game play, but what else is there than that one level if there is no story? 7v7 is quite small, too.

Animations are old school, not physics based (all scripted - that why they look a little bland, IMO), environments are static. It has no destruction nor any form of physics interaction with a lot of sprite based effects. It does a good job with those, but it's last gen with pretty visuals and more content.

PunisherRevenge2550d ago

Man this would be a whole different conversation if this game was a PS4 exclusive....lol

DA_SHREDDER2550d ago

@ Don, it was the best by a margin? Um whatever makes you feel good dude. :)

Jaces2550d ago

Whoa, I think we all know the game that blew everyone away....FFXV. End of story.

Tr10wn2550d ago

I can name only a few games that i like but the only one that really took my attention was Titanfall, i liked The Division, Watchdogs, The Crew and Destiny all those games looks pretty awesome if i were to get a console it would be a X1 just because titanfall is exclusive on that console but i wont buy a console yet waiting for next year E3 for that.

DecoyOctopus2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

MGS5 was the best thing i saw at E3, i think titanfall looks like it could be fun but the scifi design looks really generic and the graphics are bad for a next gen game, the textures are low res http://s21.postimg.org/ktcq...

PurpHerbison2549d ago

Help me understand the appeal. Somebody please... All I saw was a generic FPS and if I was to close my eyes the whole time I would swear it was COD or BF. Not like that is the worst part though.. When you get into the Mech it still looks like a generic FPS just this time they slapped on a Mech HUD.

Hufandpuf2550d ago

1. BF4
2. Titian fall
3. Ryse
4. MGS5
5. Project Spark

Valkyre2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

Τhe sad day where a generic (oh look I have mechs, it has never been done before... NOT!)ONLINE ONLY FPS is "the best damned thing you saw", especially considering games like MGSV, Watchdogs etc etc

But hey,

WHO NEEDS SINGLE PLAYER??
WHO NEEDS A STORY???

pew pew pew pew pew pew pew

Cryptcuzz2550d ago

Your comment is as if I would have made it myself, maybe without the pew pews lol Well said and WP.

The last thing the industry needs is to be hyped the most about more FPS games. That is a fact. The earlier the industry knows the sooner the industry will grow.

PigPen2550d ago

Are you upset that they didn't pick a PS4 game as their best they saw.

Valkyre2550d ago

No , I am upset that they didnt pick a handfull of better games than some generic online only FPS...

And I said MGSV, I said Watchdogs and I will also say Quantum Break, the most interesting game (IMO) in MS camp.

But hey, I guess I am a hipster for wanting games that have a single player portion, a story and some memorable characters instead of just avatars...

bjmartynhak2550d ago

"pew pew pew pew"
Deadpool was really a fun game! xD

I prefer single player games with a good story, but it is nice to have something more casual

Kevlar0092550d ago

TitanFall looks like a CoD style FPS with Mechs, jetpacks/wall running and story integrated multiplayer. While it's remarkable for an FPS, i wouldn't call it too revolutionary

TomShoe2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

More evolutionary than revolutionary.

Much of the game looks remarkably similar to CoD, in the Time-To-Kill and the score streaks. The game mode is "Harpoint" no less!

CaEsAr-2550d ago

Have you seen MGS5? The Division? If yes, then your taste sucks donkey b*lls.

WeskerChildReborned2550d ago

People have different preferences but those games did catch my interest more than Titanfall did.

Wizziokid2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

TitanFall looked fun but the best game at E3? god no.

The Crew
Battlefield 4
Watchdogs
the Division
Destiny
Infamous: SS
MGS5

To name a few, but I suppose it's all down to preference
