Someone sounds confident.
Lets hope they take out the retarded A.I.if people wanna play by themselves give them an offline option and bots,
You don't seem to understand the point of the NPCs. They're an integral part to the pacing of the game.
I would have rather seen the NPC's act like minions in Moba's - Start at one point and slowly push towards objectives- instead of just being there to farm for some quick points/get your Titan quicker.
Having them spread out helps keep things balanced. Each team needs equal access to the NPCs to feed to the titan meat grinders.
How? They added nothing to the game. Just things to shoot to make it look like you were not playing on small teams? Pointless.
They should come up something more interesting then mindless NPC's to keep in balanced.
Because when you spawn in Titan Fall, you've got a pretty good distance to cover most of the time. Having minions skirmishing around you adds visual interest and allows players to get creative in the ways they they kill them. Once you get good at the game, they're not going to pose any threat to you, they simply serve as a means to keep the intensity high between player encounters. I put 150+ hours into Titan Fall between the beta and retail release. I'd honestly be really salty if they decided to remove the minions on Titan Fall 2.
Bs they ruined the game!,fact!.
EVERYONE understands the point of them. Everyone just realizes how terrible they are done. That's like saying they could have replaced them with giant middle fingers with the same behavior but just because they are an integral part of the game and people don't "understand" that there is no issue here. If they portray soldiers in this time period then they shouldn't be so blind. They need something else that makes sense but delivers similar benefit. Ever heard of Starhawk? It's literally a far more solid game that basically Titanfall borrows a ton of ideas from, but not nearly as balanced or well done.
People whinging about the A,I clearly didn't understand their purpose. Offline and bots....yeah not really what proper Titanfall fans want
No, people complain because they were absolutely pointless. we get why they were there but it was still poorly executed.
@Rude You mean, like your childhood?
So, enjoying playing against bots and not having to deal with douchebags online makes them proper fans?
The AI had no skill, thus it needed no skill to kill them....what ever happend to building skill...my 10 year old said it was too easy.......my 10 year old though. If they are gunna have bots, and a gun that aims for you, the at least make it challenging
@bennissimo You mean, like your comment?
And again people do not realize what the bots were for. Part of the reason for the bots was for every person to have a chance to pilot a Titan. That way one team or one person who may be godlike wouldn't always have a Titan and dominate the whole match. So there was no point in making the A.I. crazy good or that would defeat the purpose of what Respawn was going for.
Honestly, people are genuinely clueless if they mistake the bots for AI adversaries. They clearly are absolutely clueless and its tiring drumming the obvious into their heads. Ah oh well....what can you do eh?
You must not have played it in a few years as they have game modes that don't have them. Or you've never played at all and are just a hater lol
At the very least have a game modes without out them. It's one of main reasons I only put 10 hours into the first game. It makes the game feel even more casual than COD.
Read @pope comment. Cuz yea...there are modes without them soooo. Either you honestly were unaware or you didnt play it. At least now you know.
I look at the bots as similar as minions in MOBA games
Nah, the more I play games that have AI mixed in with human enemies the more I'm loving them. Battleborn's incursion and meltdown modes are such good fun.
An offline option would be good, but have you played the game? The A.I is really key, like Pandamobile said, to each match's pacing. They're there to make sure that people can get points to get their Titans faster - imagine, if they just weren't there at all, how long it would take to get a Titan? The game would turn from fast paced to a slow grind, and that would be terrible. You'd have 1-2 people at best running around with Titans, while everyone else waits for the timer to tick down. The A.I also add a nice aesthetic feel to the game, but that's just a bonus. Could they improve the A.I functionality? Yes. Should they be removed entirely? I don't think so
Looks like you never played the game
If you actually played the game you would know there's a game type without bots
Can't wait for next week!!!
Can't wait to find out more. E3's just next week though, so I guess I won't have to wait long ...
This is my most anticipated shooter. The first was such a solid FPS multiplayer experience. Can't imagine how fun the next will be. Bring on the mechs.
That's what people said with cod:mw... Just saying
And the MW series was the pinnacle of COD cause it was developed by the team known as respawn now. It's funny how IW used to be the gold standard and Treyarch was trash and IW and Treyarch are both trash.
And cod:mw was one of the most influential shooters ever...
Bring it on! This week is gonna go past so slowly..
This week is gonna suck
I hate waiting.
Hope for a good single player experience.. And more content for the mp part. More weapons and bettet customisation.
I enjoyed titanfall for about a month but i think there are a lot of changes to be made to push it to the forefront. That being said, as a game trailer reveal in 2013, it had me on the edge of my seat. It's the reason i bought my Xbox one when i did.
I only lasted 2 weeks
Good luck with that LMFAO
A huge, Epic 20 hour campaign would be nice. Day 1 if that happens :3
It needs two campaigns 2 make up for the missing first one
Good luck with that. I expect this and Battlefront will have super short single player modes just enough so that people can't say "there is no single player". I mean both games sold well without any single player what's the real incentive? Maybe I'll be wrong, but I doubt it.
I never trust developers who like to brag about their games without showing anything.
Maybe... Just maybe they are waiting until e3?
Maybe...just maybe they shouldn't say it will steal the show.
They're confident in there work. So what do you think they should have said.. "I hope you don't hate it guys" they're just trying to generate buzz
We shall see, cant wait for E3
Missed this because I didn't have Xbox and wasn't a PC gamer at the time. Can't wait for this!
Titanfall was a great demonstration. I think it was a great show of potential. I hope with Titanfall 2 we'll see more of a "full version".
I believe it, I loved the first one, and I'm sure TF2 will only build on it's greatness. I'm glad that it's Multi-Plat now so more can play it, but I still hope that the X1/PC version doesn't get nerfed network wise since PSN doesn't have the dedi's to support a game of this level and EA servers aren't very good. I'd love to see PC/X1 have crossplay on Azure (hell I'd love to see PS4 on Azure too, but doubt it will happen). I swear I'm not saying this to be a troll even though I know some will assume I am, but anyone that played the first one will agree that the solid servers was one of the highlights of the game. I played the hell out of the first one, I can't wait to get into that smooth mayhem again. Edit....Apparently EVERYONE so far that replied to my comment didn't even read what I said at all...they just went straight into troll fanboy mode and tried to make up what I was saying instead of reading what I ACTUALLY said. This is why fanboys will never succeed.
"I swear I'm not saying this to be a troll even though I know some will assume I am" Not doing yourself any favours. When you have to explain that you're not a troll, based on your history... yeah the opposite can be expected to be true. If you had educated yourself, like you refuse to do in most aspects of your PlayStation-downplaying, you would know that Azure cloud can be used by anybody in the industry, even direct competitors like Sony, and EA can choose to support their games with Azure features on ANY platform. https://twitter.com/xboxp3/... -------- Shame that you didn't seem to clarify that in your original comment. So basically, your comment was a stealth troll that PSN is a weaker network and despite you having said nothing of the sort, and now you clarified that your comment's intention was to downplay PSN, you still are unable prove it can't support a game like Titanfall, when it supported a massive 256-player game on last-gen configuration. This is not really what the conversation was about, but what is there specifically about Titanfall that PSN cannot deliver to an end? I'm all ears. I don't think you have a right to call me a moron, when you are consistently manipulative and can't even be honest. Tell me in what areas, did Sony NOT upgrade their network for PS4? It seems awfully more stable, smooth and reliable than in the PS3 days, and is certainly not down more often than XBL which has been down over triple the amount of times than PSN has this year, ironically. How it stands today in your mind, is based on your warped opinion of the PS3-era PSN. You lied about Uncharted 4's gameplay and here you are again lying about PSN. I'm excited to see you try to act like you have a leg to stand on. ---------- @ Moldybread Jesus another stalker comment. How much do you love me mate? xD Unlike many on this website, I have never denied fanboyism but you are so far removed from understanding anything about me, consistently, that it wouldn't even register to you. Funny how you're using this guy's comment to try and drag me down, despite not even investigating his history for yourself. This guy consistently lies about PS4 games, most recently with Uncharted 4, and believes and has stated numerous times, that by default every single Xbox exclusive deserves to be rated 10 points higher on the scale, and that every PS4 exclusive deserves to be rated 10 points lower on the scale. And this is the kind of person you are supporting/showing indifference toward by trying to expose me. You are so obsessed with any interaction I have with others that relates to Microsoft, that you see past people doing similar stuff that you hate so much. Hilarious. You'll never, ever show the same dedication to Xfolks saying stuff about Sony. "i am still waiting for games like rocket league to support cross play between psn and xbl, will thsat ever happen now that microsoft have made an open invitation?" Oh the double standards will not cease. You are not immune, and you wouldn't be using all of those examples if not to troll on PSN along with the fanboy that you are supporting by replying to me on his comment. Great example you used there, and it would be a good one to prove something, if not for the fact that PS4/PC have a number of cross-play games that could be open to Xbox One, if they cared enough. DC Universe Online, for example. The open invitation from Microsoft in regards to cross-play on Rocket League was a PR ploy to make Sony seem unreasonable. Where is Microsoft in their attempts to get cross-play working on other PS4/PC titles that make use of it? In your eyes, it's completely on Sony.
I had educated myself and I DO know..that's why I said I would even like to see PS4 on Azure too...duh. However, realistically, the chances of Sony agreeing to that are rather slim unless EA presses for it. I wasn't trolling...you are trolling much harder than I...you are much more of a fanboy than I could ever be. Calling out PSN for having a weaker network isn't trolling, it's just a fact of how gaming stands today. Sony chose not to upgrade their network, and instead put the vast majority of their dedicated servers behind a secondary paid service....stating a flat out fact isn't downplaying Playstation....so shut the fuck up moron.
@DigitalRaptor "Not doing yourself any favours. When you have to explain that you're not a troll, based on your history... yeah the opposite can be expected to be true." based on your history one would conclude the same, but you don't want to talk about that now do you? "If you had educated yourself, like you refuse to do in most aspects of your PlayStation-downplaying, you would know that Azure cloud can be used by anybody in the industry, even direct competitors like Sony, and EA can choose to support their games with Azure features on ANY platform. https://twitter.com/xboxp3/... " is sony using azure cloud for uncharted 4? is ea using it for the upcoming battlefield? probably not. it's a shame that sony actually has more dedicated server run games last generation than this generation and that was when psn was free. warhawk was awesome, no lag at all. games like m.a.g. handled tons of players, it was just too bad the community vanished because i really enjoyed that game. will gt sport use dedicated servers? i am still waiting for games like rocket league to support cross play between psn and xbl, will thsat ever happen now that microsoft have made an open invitation?

"Oh the double standards will not cease.

Where is Microsoft in their attempts to get cross-play working on other PS4/PC titles that make use of it? Will that ever happen?" microsoft has also supported cross play with xbox and pc. we all know microsoft was not as open as sony before but that isn't what i asked. nice deflection now that microsoft has sent an open invitation and all sony did was open up their pr handbok and mention the pc and then said they have to look at each case to see if it makes business sense and what the developer is trying to achieve. say what??? what they are trying to achieve is having more people playing together but sony decides to speak like a lawyer instead. but you being so loyal you are also deceptive and won't actually put sony to task and answer directly. just defelect and talk about the past.
I KNOW you won't understand anything I'm about to say since you are lost in your fantasy fanboy pathetic world and only see the world through your delusional fanboy goggles and think everyone else is as ignorant and pathetic as you. I have and love EVERY CONSOLE this gen and PC....I have EVERY GEN (the big three that is...and a dreamcast). I KNOW I've spent more time gaming than you have trying to get educated. I normally don't attack people like this, but you have deserved it...you're the WORST kind of "gamer" because you aren't a gamer at all...you're an insecure fanboy that hides behind the safety of the internet and picks sides behind a gaming console for NO F'N REASON other than the fact that in real life you don't amount to anything and so you need to join the "bigger gang" online in a fanboy war that I'm not even fighting in...then try to "pick on the little guy" so you can get the thrill of feeling like a tough guy since you can't experience it in real life. I love gaming, and whatever form that comes in...on whatever console...whatever Dev...I don't hold a grudge against developers AT ALL...BUT I have NO ISSUES pointing out over the top fanboys...esp negative ones. Every gen/console has them...no exceptions. THIS GEN the difference is that there are more PS fanboys, and they are the ones that are more often ignorantly negative. To me, that is the virus in the gaming world. Yes I defend Xbox more this gen....it needs it more. Yes I prefer gaming on X1 most this gen...it's my opinion, sue me...I'm DEFINITELY not trying to convince you to change your side...PLEASE stay on PSN. I prefer the X1 UI, Controller, Exclusives, and network this gen...next gen I'll take another look and decide then. I have NEVER lied about anything PS related...in fact I think the only reason my opinion bothers you is because I point out ANY flaws at all...either way it's my opinion, so suck a dick. UC4 was a great game for what it was expected to do well...but it came at the expense of AI and Combat Gameplay...you don't have to agree...but it's not a lie. YES I said that METACRITIC scores are unreliable and not that every reviewer is biased, but there are enough that are biased that the "Legit" scores IN MY EYES need adjustments. The PS exclusives need a 5-10 point reduction (I never said JUST 10) and the X1 exclusives need about a 10 point boost to get to where I usually feel the final score should land. It's hard to buy those scores when 75% of the top scores for PS exclusive games are from sites that have some sort of "Playstation" in the title...and when no-name sites pop up and say an X1 exclusive sucks "4/10 because I don't like 3rd person shooters". It's fanboys trying to sell their argument by persuading scores...if you think that is impossible, take off your tin foil hat and do some research. I didn't ask for you to like it...it's just how it usually lines up FOR ME. I'm sorry if I hurt your overly sensitive feelings with my opinion, sack the fuck up and become a man. I didn't read anything else you just said because after scanning through I realized you are too dumb to even get what I'm trying to say and you'll just resort back to your lame "fanboy" BS anyway, you can't handle anyone having a different opinion than you. Write back whatever you want...I won't read it, you're not worth it. Mic Drops ...Like TF2 ...hopefully on superior servers and not nerfed due to PSN. ....Oh and it IS all Sony's fault there is no cross play so far.
I'm pretty sure with all the hype behind the first game and Microsoft's X1 push, the servers were that solid on purpose
@pistol, you mad is going mutiplatfrom? Lol. I like the way you stealth troll. Don't you worry about psn this game will run smooth. Infact this just proves that " we need the cloud to run this game " is bullshit. " TF2 will only build on its greatness" Lmao!!! What!? Look at all the xbox fans protecting this game like if it's the best game ever... The game was fun but got old quick. TF could of been great but it just wasn't, it felt empty like it needed something to make it great. I hope we get a good single player out of it.
@PistolsAtDawn The only reason Titanfall 2 is actually coming to PS4 is because when the first Titanfall was exclusive to Xbox One, it did not sell well as all and was even given away as a freebie during the first three months of release in an attempt to push the console. For all the bluster Xbox One fanboys had about Titanfall and how it was going to be the second coming, the game has failed to sell as well as it should have given that this was THE game of the console and even now over two years later has failed to break the 3 million mark on the Xbox One. Considering that annual Call of Duty releases sell two, three times as much in less than a year (Black Ops 3 has sold under 7m on Xbone and 13m on PS4), Titanfall should have sold at least 9m by now. The fact that it hasn't does not sit well with EA who have realized that for the franchise to really succeed the game must also be released on the PS4 which ist is now doing, albeit reluctantly. I mean what happened to the power of the cloud which supposedly only XBox One was able to provide satisfactorily to Titanfall? Isn't it needed for Titanfall 2? Or has the need suddenly vanished and EA has suddenly realized that the PS4 is a perfectly adequate platform for Titanfall. Your comment above is there to denigrate PSN when you should be glad that the game is going multi-platform as clearly the sales on Xbone One DID NOT support the possibility of a sequel. By the way, learn some manners - do not call people 'Morons' when all they are doing is either expressing an opinion or just disagreeing with you. Be polite and state your case or just ignore and move on.
Some of you I swear it's to funny LOL yeah EA and Respawn are just going to ignore 40 plus million PS4 user's no they are not money is the reason this game is a multiplat. I love those jabs at Sony with the Azure comment like that really helped keep the game alive no it didn't 3 months and the game dropped off.LOL The smartest decision's they have made so far was to go multiplat and add a single player campaign, which is the only reason I'm interested to see how this game turns out hopefully it does good because it will have competition. Looking at it just by interest so far Battlefield is the game to beat this year.
I sure hope so :)
Here's hoping for an epic campaign!
From a marketing standpoint, sure I could believe that. Gimme a fleshed out campaign to go along with truly innovative online multiplayer, then I might just be in for the long haul this time.
I hope they improve the graphics, which was my only gripe... On console I mean. It was 792 with pop in, and about the worst screen tearing I've ever seen, and it didn't even look that great. Other games that are vastly superior visually have been 1080 and flawless.
Yes, agreed.....it was no looker and could use a new engine or just better res.
it was one of the first titles to launch on the xbone and it was targeting 60 fps which is FAR more important than resolution for a FPS game and most games really.
Oh I agree, but it didn't even stay locked at 60 either. It was visually a bit of a mess. This was of course before all the updates to the system though.
Steal the show?... AHHHH!
Rashid Sayed. The bringer of chicken, click bait and failing to launch.
Son of a -----! I didn't even realize this was a gamingbolt article this time!
