Titanfall Reviews

Titanfall makes landfall in North America tomorrow and other territories later in the week, and the first reviews are appearing for Respawn's mech shooter. The game won't have a score on Metacritic until it's released, but in the meantime reviews have appeared on CVG, EGMNOW, GamesBeat, GameSpot, GamesRadar, gamesTM, Joystiq, NowGamer, PC Gamer, Polygon, and VideoGamer.com.

can you text chat in the game or only use voice push to talk? that's a deal breaker for me

text chat is in, there's also a pre-match warm up dialog box to talk smack or whatever.

Personally I haven't had one connection issue all night. In fact, I've had a blast all night all. I'm loving that a Science Fiction based shooter is popular! I've got the same sort of feeling I had the night I played UT2K4 for the first time.

Also..microsofts shitty game servers are fucking dying over the launch load.

I edited my original post, it seems it's actually being hosted on EA servers. So big surprise that they don't fucking work.


Funny thing was when the beta servers were shitting all over themselves... it was EA saying MS servers were the problem and that MS was hosting all the match matching/authentication.
It's a bit of both. From what it sounds like, EA is using MS's Azure service to host the game servers (rather than buying from someone else or running their own). So it can technically be the fault of both parties. EA can not order enough servers, and MS's servers can deliver lower performance than they are supposed to.

Just got done playing 7 missions or so from the campaign. I'm really liking it. Took a bit to get in a game right at midnight but I eventually did and had no issues after that.

Yeah like TotalBiscuit said, the campaign is just sort of there running in the background. I have no idea what the story is about but the gameplay is what I enjoyed in the beta with more maps.

I didn't realize the game actually has different kinds of Titans. That seems pretty cool.

It even has a titan that sets off a nuclear explosion when it dies, in case you suck at driving titans. At least you can suicide bomb people.

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.

I really don't see what you guys are all butthurt about. Thousands of people got to play the Beta on the public servers and it was fun

While ya'll are sitting here being crotchety as fuck for no good reason I'm going to enjoy the best fast paced FPS I've played (in BETA) in years. If the other 13 maps are as fun as the 2 in beta where then this game is worth what I paid for it.

I think a lot of you have forgotten that games are about fun. Not bashing a game because of who developed it or published it because some guys reviewed it on private servers. Get over it. So disappointing to read any of the comment threads on here anymore.

You would actually have to have active brain cells to get the basic gist of the point of gaming. something sorely lacking on blues these days.

Its just a mindless collection of immature trolls.

Define "fun"? I love competitive shooters but these days, it's all about leveling up etc, aka "grinding". This IP begs for a single player experience, instead within a month it'll be the same old same old.

QFT.

Also, if I recall correctly, the beta hit 2 million people.

Because popularity = good...

Candy Crush, 90 million players a day... Nuff said?

Look, the core gameplay is fast and fun, but for me personally, it's not lasting. I've been playing this sort of thing since Doom/Quake days, the skins change but the gameplay is essentially the same. And they've added prestige/paragon grinding to the mix right off the bat, GG...

Yeah, you'll fit right in there!

If Beta is any indication, hopefully there are a lot of complaining, whining, self centered, cry babies on my team. I would not want it any other way.

No bot match, no sale.

Every match has bots in it. They are basically cannon fodder. If you don't like competing against other players, you could always just farm the bots.
