games™ recently had the chance to sit down and chat with the senior map designer of Respawn's upcoming Titanfall, Mohammad Alavi, who discussed the game's ambitious experiments within the FPS genre.
Which isn't singleplayer?
Does it have to be?
An MMO about killing the other six players and destroying their titan, is a character driven experience?
"Which isn't singleplayer?" Well no sh*t Sherlock, that's the whole point. It isnt a singleplayer, that's why like it or not they are doing it differently than most other fps which is why we are having this conversation. Any insightful thoughts about why you think the game is worst off by trying to do the story intertwined in the multiplayer would be far more helpful than stating the obvious.
An opinion from someone who has yet to experience the full game and all its modes is valid? Why not wait and see huh Ittoryu?
In what way, shape or form, is a multiplayer shooter "character driven"?
Play it and find out.
This is what I am most excited about, know absolutely nothing about the story and that is the way it should be. Way to keep it under wraps this whole time respawn.
I'm hopeful but not expecting much to be perfectly honest. I will be picking it up though no matter how great/poor the story turns out to be as the gameplay is what I find enjoyable thus far.
This won't be a Halo. The reason they are hype talking the 'character driven story' is so that people forget this is an online only game because the single player campaign was dropped after Xbone DRM was removed.
Is there evidence for such a claim? Link pls - I'm intrigued by this.
There is no story dude its multiplayer only.
There's an online story mode. People for some reason refuse to get that through their skulls.
Great? I doubt it, since there no campaign mode, only multiplayer online has a story (I dont know how that even possible lol)
hahahahahahah it's just cod with robots!!!
they are just BSing now
What is expected. They are under the Microsoft umbrella.
their just trying to sell titanfall and make it look like its just not only multiplayer mode
Lol character driven...wat.
Character driven 'cinematic' experience? You just used that word all Xbox fanboys hate lol. You're releasing on the wrong next gen console platform if that's what Titanfall is going to be because it won't get appreciated or else :P.
Question: will the people bashing games like Uncharted, The Last of Us, and The Order now claim this'll be excellent for Titanfall?
Question: Who are the people bashing Uncharted, The Last of Us and The Order? Question 2: Are they the same ones who never played Titanfall and are in every Titanfall article claiming it's not innovative, CoD with Mechs, Over Hype, only 6v6 and every other excuse they can think of?
Yeah I see these random claims of hate for ps games but other than generalized statements from xbox fans saying 1080p doesnt make games like KZ SF or Knack better than lower res games like DR3 I don't hear alot of xbox fans bashing ps games especially great ones UC2 and TLOU. I think he is confusing pointing things like that out with bashing ps or its games, yet n4g is filled with plenty more ps supporters who regularly straight up troll X1 games, with the same old tired "OMG it's not 1080p" comments, but then dare you comment on The Order using black bars as a technical ploy around full screen 1080p then its considered blasphemy. As for Titanfall nobody is buying the game for the story anyway, talk of Titanfall story is merely a side bar at this point since Respawn has already completely sold this game on the gameplay through previews and actual hands on by gamers themselves with a Alpha and Beta.
Gonna keep stalking me, eh? If you wanna know who I'm talking about, go to articles concerning those games. Like you've already done, of course. Just, this time, without your selective vision. And actually, they're the same ones who think Titanfall is the next great shooter, even though many of them have never played it. They even go as far as to attack fellow Xbox fans like KNWS who've played it, and are disappointed in it. But you already know that, too. @4show: if you haven't seen anybody attacking PlayStation games, then you're using the same selective vision that maniacmayhem can't live without. You act as if I'm the only person who's noticed what I pointed out, when at least two others here mention it- one of them commenting before me. But I guess that's no surprise, coming from you.
As long as you post stupidity, yes. Sort of like the same ones who are in every Titanfall article downplaying the game, saying CoD with Mechs, not interested and any other excuse because the game isn't on their system of choice....sort of like YOU.
I get it that its going to be a great game. But damn, these sites are going overboard with these articles. I haven't played it yet and I'm already getting titanfall fatigue.
Character driven cinematic experience? but i thought xbots hate it
