Don't know how I feel about Magic being a part of Titanfall but if it's grounded it can work.

I'm a big TV junkie myself so excited if the TV series moves forward. I mean Liongate TV is the production studio but no network has been announced for the TV series so still far away from production.
Before everyone jumps on the "Defiance" doom and gloom train, Defiance was a solid television series with an amazing cast and storyline that didn't require the games. Titanfall does seem a bit expensive, as a TV series.

3 year dev time is expected, especially with a campaign being pushed into the game.
Looking forward to Titanfall 2 XD.

Seeing magic listed made me instantly think of Shadowrun

It made me think of Mass Effect. I guarantee that's how it will play. Bioware EA, Respawn EA. It seems like a no brainer

PancakeLova1610d ago

Sounds about right. Seems kinda silly for that universe but we'll see.

I am a little concerned about the magic part since it isnt part of the original lore and might feel out of place, but I'm hoping for the best.

Hoping its better than the last one

The first was so overrated, and astonishingly to me was called "innovative" by reviewers (must have been a pay packet incentive), when its most prized elements had been done in other games years before it came along.

Not at all excited for a sequel, unless they show something crazy unprecedented that warrants the hype. TV show could be cool, but I don't expect them to make anything memorable.

Khaotic1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

Elaborate please. The part that has been done in multi-player games years before. Was it the evolution of quick seamless traversal through the multi-player maps or was it the seamless transition from FPS to a mechanized robotic suit that you could transition in and out of at will, command it to follow you or set it on its own path.

I'm not aware of these games and I've been gaming a long time.

I'm not trying to be snarky either I understand if you didn't like it. But to say people were paid to give it positive light and that it wasn't innovative in its mechanics, to me that's silly

Well it started a trend. Look at the two biggest FPS's to ever grace grace gaming, Halo and CoD. Both were more than likely inspired by Titanfall's means of traversal and verticality. Was Titanfall maybe a bit wee overhyped? Sure. But when the devs were coming off of the prime days of CoD (CoD 4/MW2) and the backing of Microsoft, of course it would be in your face.

Even if it didn't really make a dent in CoD's mass appeal (yet) it flipped the table around because CoD was no longer the one being copied, it was copying a new game and ironically the former CoD devs are still influencing CoD in some way shape or form.

As for the TV show, that's just a waste of time and money. It'll be low budget SyFy movie crap.

Titanfall has a lot of room to grow and I believe that Titanfall 2 will be "the" prime game when it comes out.

I previously have to mentioned the achievements and gameplay of Brink, Quake, Unreal, Hawken, Call of Duty and Mirrors' Edge to counter-point the numerous claims of innovation in Titanfall. There's nothing innovative about entering and exiting a combat vehicle, and moving around levels quickly and seamlessly is not an innovation either.

You can call it silly, but there's no other explanation to why the game was claimed to be innovative other than pure ignorance, which as gaming journalists is 100% unacceptable (to misinform their readership). So it's THAT, or "they were paid". Pick one.

Titanfall has potential as a series, I'll give it that, but I'm not waiting in anticipation for a sequel to a game I thought was overrated in the first place.

Spoonsx1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

Every game going to have a TV series now? lol

UltraNova1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Then when the game turns out to be crap they'll blame it on the reduced budget, that part of it was bled to make the TV series.
