Be Advised: it's time you gave Titanfall another chance

Dealspwn writes: "Titanfall is one of the best games of 2014.

No ifs or buts. On a purely objective and mechanical level, Titanfall's gameplay is impeccable, blowing the multiplayer shooter genre wide open with mobility, verticality, parkour, massive stompy robots and some of the best maps of the decade. It certainly isn't the first FPS to feature mechs and jet packs, but no game has ever managed to make these features so fluid and accessible, allowing anyone to get involved while providing veterans with a near-infinite skill ceiling as their abilities improve. As such, I've returned to it on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis simply because it's that good.

Unfortunately, however, I lied. There was an "if" and a "but," and it's a doozy, because there's no denying that Titanfall was also wicked skinny for a full-priced game."

Yeah, played it a couple of days ago and am loving it!

I especially like being able to trade in cards on the blackmarket to get enough points to counterfit certifications that I don't want to complete in order to regen.

That and the new hoard mode where you play with 3 other players is really quite challenging.

With all of the changes that Respawn have made to TitanFall, I plan on playing this until Halo Master Chief Collection comes out.

Gen 10 here I come-- woohoo!

Oh nice - I'm still on Gen 8, but don't want to buy my way out of my last challenge yet. Going to buy the SID voice pack - it's literally CABAL from Tiberian Sun!

But yes, Titanfall is still absolute quality - and the quantity is sorted now too.

EDIT: Yeah, and Horde mode is awesome. Worth getting some mates with headsets on board - communicating really helps with the later waves of Nuke and Mortar Titans!

I have been at Gen 3 for a long ass time as I don't bother regen, but man I have been oplaying this game non-stop since launch.

This game might be game of the year for me, if it wasn't for two other amazing games, Sunset Overdrive and Halo:MCC.

There is soo much goodness on the Xbox One that my other consoles are just sitting there collecting dust. Maybe I should trade the in for another Xbox One.

The new horde mode is awesome, but I wish more people would use the freaken mic. Communication is key here!

I'm definitely going to pick it up if there's an Origin sale. I enjoyed it a bit when it came out, but I'm not a competitive person. This new co-op mode has me excited again. Can't wait to try it!

Software_Lover1449d ago

Yeah, I've stated many times I'm not into multiplayer like that. I have my times, but that is far and few in between. I might give it a try when it's dirt cheap otherwise it would be a waste of my money.

I know I've harped on these things before, but they need to make a Mass Effect trilogy with all DLC definitive edition so I can play it again right before Mass Effect 4. Single player goodness.

I just hope they turn Mass Effect 4 into the RPG it should be.

Just get an origin key from G2A. PC gamers need not wait for good prices :-)

famoussasjohn1449d ago

Origin just set me a sale for $19.99, or $14.99 after buying BF4. Not sure what G2a is offering.

TekoIie1449d ago

Its currently on sale for half price. So if you feel that's a good price to drop on it the now is a good time to buy it.

DJustinUNCHAIND1449d ago

It doesn't need another chance. It already Stole my heart.

Frontier Defense is so fun.

Blues Cowboy1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

Yup, same here. I've been playing it on a weekly basis since launch - it's my 'go to' game on XBL. To be honest, I've never been bothered about progression systems all that much as someone who grew up on Doom, Quake, UT99 etc - it's all about the gameplay for me.

And Titanfall smashes it on that front - plus now there's lots of extra meta content to enjoy as well. Still, I know lots of people who left and never came back - hopefully they'll do so now, if only to try out the new horde mode.

espawn has done an excellent job making sure that Titanfall stays updated, working and fresh with maps, modes and other features. Good job guys, the game is still as fun now as it was when I first picked I up.

I hope part 2 will be even better!

Cobberwebb1449d ago

The season pass on X1 is now only £6.60, so we picked it up today because we love the new co-op mode so much. But I think it's too late, when we left the game the global count was only at around 1500. It will probably pick up when the US guys hit the evening, but not a great amount.
