Having spent a bit of time with Titanfall at Gamescom, I get the feeling Repawn Entertainment's new multiplayer shooter could potentially drag a bit of the Call of Duty crown EA's way.
That's because the game is satisfyingly opportunistic, blisteringly fast-paced, and stunningly smooth. It looks like a console shooter, and, for the most part, it feels like a console shooter.
In contrast to the PC demo of Battlefield 4, where everyone in the preview ignored the provided game controllers and instead opted for the keyboard and mouse, the 10-or-so press in the Titanfall PC demo opted for the controller.
Yet, while this exciting new game screams "console" to the every day gamer, the team behind the game is working to ensure it feels equally at home on the PC platform.
