I found the open beta to be pretty 'meh' myself. As an old mechwarrior fan the total lack of customization and simplicity of combat in the Mechs is a huge turn off to me. Everyone just uses the one that gathers and throws back bullets. Combine that with the handful of tiny, uninspired maps and terrible AI on the bots you cannot turn off. This is bargain bin material for me. I'd frankly much prefer to just reinstall BF4, a startlingly better game in my mind.

that's exactly what it was designed to be... a simple dumbed down mech game for the CoD masses. just be glad we get served a game like this at all, so play and try to make the most of it instead of complain and complain... that's all i hear u guys do.

News Comments > New GeForce Drivers for Titanfall
5. Re: New GeForce Drivers for Titanfall Mar 10, 2014, 15:04 Fantaz
 
interesting...

I'm very impressed by Titanfall, and I'm keen to start playing it again on launch. The multiplayer FPS hasn't felt this fresh or multilayered since the release of Team Fortress 2, and even that game was based on foundations laid ten years before its release. If Titanfall - or something like it - had been released fifteen years ago, I suspect we'd be talking about it today in the same hushed tones reserved for Tribes 2 and Team Fortress Classic. Titanfall is every bit good enough, from moment to moment, to be a part of that legacy.

Where it does fail, it fails because of the ways that games in general have changed in the last fifteen years. The notion of the shooter as a MMOish 'service' manifests in ugly ways: the lack of LAN or offline support of any kind, the high price tag, the inevitable season pass. You can form a party with your friends and queue for games, but you can't create your own private lobbies or dedicated servers. You can't even queue to play a specific map on a specific gamemode - you can choose to play Capture The Flag, for example, but you've got no say on where you end up doing it. These issues are not necessarily dealbreakers, but they prevent the game from receiving the outright recommendation it otherwise might.

The things you do in Titanfall are likely to be some of the most exciting things you do in any game this year. It is clearly the work of sharp, analytical designers, and it deserves to penetrate the thick layer of cynicism that traditionally surrounds big budget shooters of this type. It's just a shame that this same intelligence and restraint isn't evident in the business culture that surrounds the game. If you choose to invest in Titanfall, make it your mission to track down the stories that emerge when all of its systems come together and sing. They are why this genre became so popular in the first place, and Titanfall is a fine way to rediscover that attraction. Just know what you're being dropped into.

I enjoy the show but this game is absolute... absolute crap. The jokes are cheap as fuck, or farts.. I should say. Neither is there any motivation to continue in the story, because -- lol -- there's none to speak of. I understand it's fucking South Park but come on, it's an RPG and RPG's should have a goddamn story. Period. And mu god is the game just utterly fucking boring in general.

Loving the show, hating the game. People who think this is worth a buy are the people who laugh their ass off at every fart joke. Every time.

I'd say it depends on the kind of fart.

the farts in this game never get old... lol, maybe i'm just immature but i never tire of the silly jokes and farts in this game.

if you do get this game you'll likely need a controller bcuz the keyboard+mouse just doesnt cut it. some button mashing, better to mash with thumbs.

or if u know how to roast beans you could re-roast the beans, and that would kill off all the germs for sure.

making coffee is a religion for me. sure, call me a hipster but i just love me my Starbucks beans. i get all the bags of premium beans from my local Starbucks store (~$20), then everyday i must use an expensive $100+ burr grinder to grind a certain amount for morning coffee to use in an expensive coffee machine (drip), and then for afternoon coffee i grind again some more (must be ground right before making it!) for a different darker blend and either use the Bodum coffee press or espresso machine to make a latte, cappuccino or espresso/americano depending on my mood.

no matter how busy i am, there's always time to make fucking good coffee.

edit:
ohh, that Fistbump animated image on reddit is with Wildturtle! i met that dude, he's in my city.

Most of the comments I have seen say it is not as good as the first one. Think I will pass unless I see better reviews.

Yeah I am upgrading my PC now too, but why in the heck would anyone spend or even expect to spend $3000 on a PC? A really sweet rig should not cost you more than 1200 and you get by for less if you have parts from your old PC that are still usable.

Because I got a huge bonus from work and if I didn't spend it, the miss's would. I took nothing from the PC I was replacing, so now we have two and that way, when there's a kid gaming on one PC, and another on the TV, I'm not stuck gaming on my phone! I bought it last summer:

i7-4770K
NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler
GeForce GTX 780 SC
MAXIMUS VI HERO MB
16GB PC3-19200
Silent Pro M2 850W Modular Power Supply
Chaser MK-I Case
27in Widescreen LED LCD w/ HDMI
840 Pro Series Solid State Drive SATA III, 256GB
Vengeance K70 Fully Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Black
G500s Laser Gaming Mouse
Two Win/X360 Gamepads

At the time, with the OS, and some warranty for a few of the parts, and taxes, it added up to just under $3000. And I'm in Canada so things be a bit more here than in the US.

i'd agree with all but one thing... that an optical mouse would be a lot better for gaming than a laser one!

No mention of a gamepad requirement or even recomended?? Does that mean that mouse and Kb will be fully supported in the port?

if u checked the news at the top of yesterday you'd see this...

"[..]On top of that, FromSoftware have been working to perfectly adapt the game for a mouse & keyboard combo."

Sleeping Dogs for $5 is a hell of a deal. Sadly, none of the DLC is on sale, but it's in no way required to enjoy the game.


Great game. I would say: Don't get the DLC! It totally unbalances the game and breaks the progression. Well you can get the story one, but I didn't care much for it.

the addon packs... there's a few that are "cheat" packs. The rest are costumes and other vanity stuff. PCGamingWiki has tips on what to rename, should you buy by accident, as I did.

the others are the new areas, or alt.universe stuff, which probably shouldn't be missed if you can get a decent price.

i just want to comment on your signature... Rockstar doesn't give a shit about PC. it's evident that they don't care such as the lack of proper optimization for the GTA4 PC port, and that they haven't even announced a GTA5 PC port yet. they don't remember that GTA was originally a PC franchise? talk about pissing off their roots... i don't care about RDR but for gods sake release GTA5 soon on PC before i stop caring about the franchise. at least Eidos guys were smart and released a Thief game for PC.

it will probably be better than Thief 3: Deadly Shadows but obviously not as good as the first Thief 1: The Dark Project (and 2).

fov sliders are useless if it only goes up to 70-80 (like COD Ghosts). go up to 85-90 and i'll be happy.
