CCC "Rarely do I get as excited about a new game as I was for this one. After playing the BETA and seeing first hand how amazing this game was I couldn’t wait for it to arrive."
I still play games like Call of Duty and Battlefield for the Single Player campaigns. I don't want games to just be all about multiplayer.
This guys an idiot, he said he was waiting forever for Titanfall, so how come he didnt find out there was no singleplayer? its only been advertised as such since day 1, unless they just need a story i guess
What? It's only multiplayer?? I mean, I was not the least interested in Titanfall so I didn't know anything about it, but as everybody seems to be talking about this game, I thought this was a game that I HAD to play at least once. Knowing that it's only multiplayer just ended the little curiosity I had about the game. EDIT: I read the article, and I would be pretty pissed if I found out about it only after I bought the game. I think that people who ask "you didn't research everything about the game before buying it?" are missing the point. It's not about "you had to know it", but about "such a big game, that some people say will 'save' the Xbox One, doesn't even have a single player mode".
For months respawn said it was only mp. This game its pure fun. Stop complaining. Like cod if you buy cod for the sp its a waste of money same with bf. cod4 sp was good and fun at the same time the team at the time was 2x bigger so they could dedicate more resources on building a bigger game. This is a small team first game they make and for a first game its amazing! Tf all they way. Ghosts will be eating dust for now own.
I hope that it's not the future of gaming. First off it's just 792p. Next gen titles should NEVER be below 900p. If we wanted 700ish resolutions we could just stay with last gen http://youtu.be/2Z-PvKLHDOw Also if multiplayer is going to be the only type of gameplay offered up to paying customers then you should drop the price.
Agreed. I was curious about the game at first until learning, very quickly, that it was multiplayer-only. I'm not much of a competitive player, so it didn't appeal to me and I will probably never get it. But I still paid attention and learned early on that it would not be the game for me. Not sure why anyone would think anything different if they're not into multiplayer.
He likes it but just doesn't like annoying players scream to each other when playing a story mode in a game. Its a fair warning to take into consideration when buying a 60$ game. "Now, not only did I have to complete the missions, but those playing along with me did as well. The more I think about it, the more genius I believe it is. Why is this a problem for me? Because I rarely want to play multiplayer games. Listening to the players scream at each other is not my kind of escape."
Seriously I'm not a fan of CoD4 clones but what the hell are you doing playing these games in single player? Getting rid of sp campaign in titanfall was a good move. Multiplayer is everything in these games and the campaign is just wasted time, money and effort.
lol, call me old fashioned I guess. But after playing through Ghosts, I can see why they would drop the campaign. If that is all the effort they are going to put into them, then they mine as well just drop the SP altogether.
some people dont like multiplayer games? simple as, I loved Cod4 for both aspects multiplayer was fun and the single player was amazing it was the first game i bothered to get 1000/1000 gamerscore i loved playing it that much, so please dont generalise your thoughts to be everyone elses. And tbh if Titanfall had a single player i would more than likely buy it when i decide to get an xbone I dont do multiplayer only games no more unless they are MMOs
"what the hell are you doing playing these games in single player?" Some people would rather work their way through a halfway decent story than to play the same game over and over, which is essentially what you're doing with a completely multiplayer game. To each their own. My little brother prefers very focused single player campaigns that are heavy on scripted events. Replay value is meaningless to him. He hates open world games with the exception of Elder Scrolls, and when a new one of those comes out he says he has trouble getting excited about it because he knows what a time sink it is. He only likes CoD style games for online play, and really mainly just CoD itself. I prefer a good and more random AI, more open worlds or at least bigger levels with multiple paths, and hate CoD style online games. To each their own.
Same here. Well, Call of Duty, anyway. COD, COD2, MW, and MW2 have incredible campaigns. As far as Battlefield goes, it's pretty much just the first Bad Company that has a great campaign. Still, I prefer a good campaign to multi-player.
Battlefield began as an online-only game. I'm fine with games being multiplayer focused...as long as they are priced accordingly. $60 for a game with only an online mode is a rip-off...unless it has some crazy depth to it.
I dont think TF is the "future of gaming", TF is just using what brink and the alike couldnt do well showing us it could work and how it could work if done properly. there would always be single player story driven games the indies will make sure of that
Like who cares if you don't op.
this argument is old. You know ahead of time its multiplayer only. If you don't like that, don't get it. There are single player only games so why can't there be multiplayer only games. "60 dollar for online onlyyyyy" Its funny because people have put far more hours into halo/cod/bf multiplayer than their campaign. Thats actually where the value is for these games. I'm glad they didn't put together a sad/short/rushed SP like battlefield and call of duty. I only wanted it for the multiplayer.
Dude...you are 100% spot on. Couldn't have said it better. + a bubble for ya.
The campaign allows you to practice, brush up, and prepare for multiplayer in ways a simple "tutorial" can't. You say the value of previous FPS games is in the multiplayer? Does that all of a sudden give developers/publishers the right to not at least include a single player mode for a $60 game? If that's the case, lets forget about story/character/IP progression and stick to Titanfall, Titanfall 2K15/16 and so forth like a sports game.
you're missing the point that a single player campaign was never part of the deal. they tell you before buying. If multiplayer only isn't $60 value to you, then don't buy it. If respawn wants to make titanfall 2k15/16, that's their right to do it. People who want that and find value in that will buy it.
THis is something new in FPS. But the future of gaming isn't titanfall. The future of gaming is how to make your own FPS. Like Dice made BF, its's huge with 64 players online. Activison made COD, the game is great in it's own way, but they have lost their way when coming to new ideas in this franchise. Then we have Respawn who has made Titanfall, their own take on FPS, it feels fresh and fun. You also have GG who makes killzone,also a really great fps game. In my opinion innovation is what the future is.
I hate how people bash on games when they clearly have been defined as a multiplayer only or single player only title. You can't go around criticising games for something it isn't. Bioshock 1 single player only. AMAZING. Titanfall multiplayer only judge it as it is, not what you want from a game.
I don't understand. If you can't judge a game by "what you want in a game" then how will you judge it? By your logic, you can say "this game was clearly defined has having poor controls, so why are people bashing it because we can't control the character well?" EDIT: And by saying "this game has poor controls" I am not speaking about Titanfall. I haven't played it yet but plan to pick it up this weekend. I just mean in general, for any new game coming out.
an analogy would be buying a turn based rpg and complaining about lack of action. Getting dark souls and bitching about dying. Logging onto world of warcraft and saying you can't get good gear by yourself. You should know what the game is about before buying rather than getting it and wishing for elements of other games.
@legionsoup "you can say "this game was clearly defined has having poor controls, so why are people bashing it because we can't control the character well" no game is ever going to be clearly defined by its developers to have "poor controls." and if there was some company that decided to do that, then NO someone would not be able to complain about the controls because the developers CLEARLY explained the way they would be. what @ASL365 is trying to say is that if a developer clearly defines a game as multiplayer only then critique within that scope. dont complain about something that was never intended to come to fruition.
When people really want something to succeed (or fail), logic goes out the window.
I see what you mean, legion, but there needs to be a limit. My biggest gripe with Titanfall is that it doesn't have the big pvp battles I thought it'd have: the videos from the announce and such were mostly populated by bots. Therefore, the game isn't for me. But I can't be upset with Titanfall for being only online, as Respawn never gave any indication that it would be anything BUT online. I can't be upset that it doesn't have RPG elements a la Borderlands, because the game never looked like it would be that. In my opinion, Final Fantasy XIII suffered from that a lot. We're entitled to have our own expectations of a game, but they should be reasonable. And they should be based on what the game attempts to do, or at least advertises itself as doing.
Not really "the future of gaming" still fun as hell! Nothing is every going to be the "future" of gaming, it just doesn't happen
i don't understand all these people knocking this game. the game is actually quite good.
Sony ponies are the only ones bashing it. If it was on PS3 and PS4 there wouldnt be any hate.
If it was on playstation platforms the reception and critique would be very different.
Really??Yes blame it on Sony fans.It's not like there's xbox and PC fans also knocking it down *rolls eyes*.
Don't think people are knocking the gameplay, I think the concern is if we are not careful we will get less for our money. I have bought Titanfall (PC) and value for money it is not the best - everyone knows what EA is like and I am sure we are all going to get stung for DLC. Compared to COD Ghosts and Battlefield it is very light even if the campaigns on those two titles was a little lacklustre.
I enjoyed ghosts & bf4 sp. The latter was even semi-plausible. As long as you get past the fact that the squad is the only squad the captain trusts. Lol I agree that gamers need to have a little foresight. Consider what you are buying...what message that will send to publishers. Id have no problem with a mp fps with procedural maps. Different every time. Or a playlist for that. I have no idea how many maps are in titanfall...but anything short of 20 in a mp only game feels weak.
The game is yes actually quite good. The one thing that irritates people much who has no plans of playing the game even on PC is that is so Overly hyped. its good, maybe great but not a masterpiece which xbone fans say so. and some paid reviewers who gave perfect 10 which in reality is not the case.
It's by far the best multiplayer shooter game we've seen in a while, so it's got that going for it at least.
Titanfall is the future, nothing is ever allowed to come close. the game does things that other titles can only dream of anyone who challenges Titanfalls majestic presence!!! Well I will cast them out!!!!!!
Couldn't agree more.
For casual gamers, this game is not for you. I'm getting my @$$ killed over and over. I never can make it to the drop ship. Everyone who I get paired with is 10x on a higher level. I don't have a partner to pair up with so everybody is random. I don't think this game is for me.
Frankly, when it comes to these games, I prefer they focus on one or the other. SP games aren't going away, so instead of some half-assed campaign jammed in just for the sake of it, focus on the core of the game. If its multiplayer then don't waste time with singleplayer. Same goes for SP games that force MP when its not needed. Granted there are games that can have both, but I am talking about the games that are clearly MP or SP focused.
Only bad thing in this game is when you play it after period of time and you look at clock and you are like s*it 5h passed so quick? Dam I have work tomorrow. S*it. Fu**ing work. I will call my boss and Quit
Maybe I had a great connection. Maybe the art style clicked with me. Maybe the stylized loadout system just worked for me. But I loved Brink! I platted it. It did everything titanfall doing...and at the time after a few patches it ran smoothly for me. It was fun, it was fairly casual friendly...no more difficult to get than cod. But it didn't click for most. I always wonder how much influence marketing has on us. And games like Brink or Binary Domain get sent out to die.
Its a balance..If you want an epic campaign there are fps with that as a focus...Titanfall is trying something new. If you don't like it move on. How many times have people complained about all the FPS games copying /cloning each other? Lets give new ideas a go for once.... Additionally 2 ps3s were traded in today for 2 titanfall Xbox bundles...not trying to play into fanboyism but felt like it should b mentioned that this game IS moving consols....
Got it on Tuesday and have played through the short campaign mode. Kinda like... OK. Good game, but now what. I may trade in and get Dark Souls 2. It sucks that MS makes you have GOLD to play online. Basically makes the game 120 bucks, unless you already have GOLD or buy a 1 or 3 month card.
Yes but don't forget that you have to also pay sony if you want to play online..$10 a yr isn't a large gap in price either...
okay.. then don't play...
Why does everyone feel the need to explain why they AREN'T playing this game? What happened to the days when if you didn't want to play something, you just didn't? Why are people going out of their way now to try and downplay something that they claim to have no interest in? If you don't want it, don't play it. It just comes across as whining and biased trash talk. It makes gamers look really spoiled and like we are so elitist that we think the world revolves around us when we whine like that. How about we just stick to positive things we like about games instead of letting our sense of entitlement over-rule our sense of fun? I absolutely love this game, but would never try to force someone that doesn't like it to play it. My only legit complaint about it (other than getting stuck with teammates that apparently have no idea how hardpoint works) is that after you beat the campaign, there is no indication of which maps you have or have not beaten and you can't choose to play as Militia or IMC...hopefully they fix that with a patch.
It's just the current state of the internet. Look how many article titles begin with the word "Why" and go on to give the writer's personal opinion on some topic.
You probably meant ps4's. Thats sad. But I get it. SONY should've had a fps release same day as Titanfall. Fps...because thats the flavour these days. These trade ins (and im certain its very small amount...like irrelevant) are going to bite back once games start flowing as we are used to.
This article is stupid. People who dont like titanfall must have bad hand/eye coordination. And people who cant play it are jealous
so he waited all that time for Titanfall and didnt eve realize there was no single player?
Respawn has explained many times over that they don't have a proper SP campaign because of the current manpower they have, roughly 70 developers. So after the success of TF, there will be surely a broader single player campain for the next TitanFall.
Games are stupid. :)
Its a shame you dont play amazing games that changes shooters for the better you pathetic childish sony fanboy.Nobody cares if you dont play much in the future you seem like a crying 12 year old anyway.Ive said this already no matter how much you sony famnboys cry and write this pathetic articles you didnt stop titanfall from dominating the charts and selling Xbox Ones.The X1 took it number 1 spot back last week outselling the PS4 in the U.S and UK
Don't worry. Sony has us gamers' backs. >.<
