Smart pistol is bullshit. Period. You can defend it all you like, but we all know it's bullshit.

You are wrong. It is quite difficult to use against enemy pilots unless they are oblivious. You have to be pretty damn sneaky to use it for anything other than creep farming. It's basically what this game has instead of witchblading, and it's much more fair than that ever was.

My point was that I miss games which weren't made for idiots (COD/Titanfall), and weren't simplistic, sloppy-coded garbage(Tribes:Ascend). They had multiple paths to victory, which suffocated hackers even with working aimbots.

Titanfall is a game that introduces multiple paths to victory to team deathmatch. That you somehow hadn't noticed that proves that what Trevellian said is correct, and everything you type about Titanfall is a waste of keystrokes.

No, YOU are wrong, hur dee der de dur.

Tomorrow's news: Valve gets a cease-and-desist from Microsoft for using their color/labeling scheme.

Maybe if MS didn't crib it directly from Nintendo in the first place.

If you are getting killed regularly by the smart pistol, you do suck at the game. It takes ages for the thing to lock on, it's only good for ambushing pilots and killing grunts. It's just a beginner weapon that helps people get into the game, that's it.

Can I be cool liek all the kids and just scream WRONG!

I disagree. I have tried out the smart pistol and whipped the shit out of everybody with it. It locks on pretty damn fast, and the entire middle of the screen is one giant killzone. Added bonus - it fires just as fast as a sub gun without locking on an does more damage! Yeah!

Fanboi defense away!

"I suck at the game and im going to cry hacks." That's all I got out of the last few posts. Keep making up excuses for yourselves. There will always be someone better than you. Especially people who have been playing COD for years and are already used to the aiming mechanics in this game because of it. Get over it. I place in the top 3 almost 75% of my games played (this is a stat you can look up in game BTW) and probably about 30% of those placings were MVP. In all that time I have MAYBE been suspicious of ONE person for hacking. But apparently you guys run into them regularly. I find that incredibly difficult to believe.

If you don't like the game. That's fine. Don't like it. But dont make up bullshit like "everyone else is hacking" because you suck as a reason to give to other people. Its pretty pathetic. And this isn't the only game I've seen people do this with here. Just stop.

Blah blah blah, I THINK I'M AWESOME. That's all I got out of your bullshit. Respawn has admitted there are a ton of cheaters right now, so piss off.

Also, I rarely complain about cheating in games. I recognize that people are better than me, and I laugh when everyone in BF4 whines about this guy or that guy cheating. No, they're probably just better than you.

However, I have watched people in Titanfall cross an entire map in a split second, and have seen a bunch of people popping headshots with pistols and subguns from across the map with regularity. Like, every kill.

Game engine is really not optimized for PC. Runs great sometimes, sometimes choppy on the same map later on.

NVidia driver issues, according to Respawn, anyway - randomly all the textures turn into an acid trip and you have to close out and restart the game to get it to go away.

Smart pistol is bullshit. Period. You can defend it all you like, but we all know it's bullshit.

Matchmaking - yeah, it sucks. Hey, the militia is a team of noobs, and the other guys are are level 27+. Shockingly, we (militia) kept losing every map.

I played. I "beat" the campaign (mostly by losing every map), I tried a few multiplayer modes. Even at level 24, I am getting slaughtered by hackers and people using the smart pistol. (And hackers using the smart pistol, which is just fucking ludicrous.) I still maintain that the maps feel friggin' empty unless you absolutely stick to a small area where everyone tends to congregate.

For my time, I will still be playing BF4 multi, even though that could be greatly improved as well. (Mostly I've been playing Zelda on my 3DS this weekend.) Bring on Metal Gear and Infamous!

IF you are encountering cheaters. LOL. It's not IF. Every game I have played so far has had at least one guy cheating his ass off. It's pretty obvious stuff - speedhacks and aimbot. Nothing like being repeatedly headshot across the map with the sub gun.

*slaps self in face*

And I wound up with a copy of Titanfall. Apparently MS is really pushing this, since our distributor got copies to give out on both PC and Xbone.

Was not going to buy, bu free? Well, shit.

Got it in one. They need this game to help their console, so they need you playing it. I went in with an open mind and decided I thought it just wasn't that good.

Of course he also have a few negative points, especially about the campaign mode, graphics, and a few other things.

"Merely great, poor us, we have to make due with merely great."
"Titanfall is totally awesome."

His closing remarks.
I don't really watch videos like this, it's 30 minutes of time I'd rather play something. These "Let's Play" things are just beyond me for that reason. I have enough crap to play that I don't need to spend 30 minutes watching someone else play something to see if it's good or not. That gets determined pretty well over the first week or three regardless.

You are not alone. I cannot fathom watching someone else play. I want to be the one playing. Then again, I can't watch sports on TV for the same reason.

The amount of kids that come into my store thinking they are going to get rich and famous by posting let's plays astounds me.

Played the beta for a few hours. Going to pass. It feels too new COD for me. I liked the older Modern Warfare 1 and 2, but then it got stupid. This is in line with MW3 and Black Ops.

Also, big maps, tiny player limit. And you can so tell AI from players because they are stupid bowling pins to shoot while you wander around wondering where the fuck everyone is.

What happened Blizzard? You used to be cool.

Refusal to update. I know they don't want to split the player base, but there are a lot of us who just are tired of playing the same game that is now almost 10 years old. And this expansion is so uninspired that I cannot even force myself to think about buying it. (Never finished Pandaria either...)

It's not the tech, it's the person using it.

That sounds suspiciously like "Guns don't kill people; people kill people." Look I get the whole "the world changes and you have to be able to adapt to change" bit but that doesn't mean that it's not a worthwhile to question to ask if the world is changing for the better. You aren't going to be able to evaluate whether technology is actually improving your life if you don't take a step back from it every now and then.

Also I'm surprised you didn't notice the irony of calling people using their phone while walking stupid, and then demanding that you not be judged for using you phone while at dinner with your wife.

If you cannot tell the difference between looking at a screen while walking and looking at a screen while stationary, you are beyond my capacity to help you understand.

Also, shockingly, guns do not kill people all by their lonesome. You know, being inanimate objects and all.

Re: Verno's comment - Yeah man, I don't let my phone go off in a restaurant like that. I actually asked a family behind us last night to please turn down their son's 3DS that he was playing at max volume. People don't seem to care that other people have the same right to enjoy themselves and don't want your noises intruding on them. (I am drilling this into my young daughter on a daily basis.)

I always thought it would be ultra cool for Neo to wake up after he "died" in the third one and realize that the reality being sold to them was actually still the Matrix.

The stupid thing is, this is what they implicitly implied when Neo suddenly gets the power to stop the squid things at the end of Matrix II while he's outside the Matrix. I was utterly convinced that that, combined with the Architect's speech, just meant that while everyone in Zion thought they were out of the Matrix, they were just in sort of a DMZ, kept away from the docile sheep in the rest of the system.

If you all haven't seen it, I highly recommend the movie The Thirteenth Floor. As well as Dark City (bonus: directors cut!), filmed around the same time as the first matrix, and I believe used some of the same sets, hence they look similar.


Saw that one. Also very good. There was also another movie out around the same time that had people in VR games and crazy reality twists, but I forget the name.

eXistenZ

It is kind of interesting that 3 of the movies came out in 1999 (and Dark City in 98).

Yes, that one. Thank you. I could not figure it out and had no luck Googling it. (My Google Fu was weak, noooooo!)

Verno wrote on Mar 7, 2014, 13:59:
There is also this thing called reality. Not every game can be Uncharted, GTA or Call of Duty, and not every game can sell like it. Any publisher that pretends their game is going to soar to such heights, history of the franchise be damned (and Tomb Raider had never sold more than ~4 million copies), are a bunch of delusional fucking morons that, again, have no fucking clue what they are doing.

I totally agree with you Creston but if the budgets come down to more realistic levels then consumer expectations have to do so as well. We would have received a far different Tomb Raider if they had spent half of the money.

It doesn't have to be that way. A lot of "development budget" is eaten by super high salaries of management and ridiculous spending that really has nothing to do with the game.
