Actually, the article is spot on, even if it doesn't touch on all of the reasons that both hardcore FPS vets and n00bs alike will enjoy the game.

An example from my own gaming experience and that of one of my LIVE friends. I play FPS's almost exclusively...aside from the occasional sports game, if I'm online, that's what I'm playing. So I'm fine with as steep a learning curve as you want to throw at me.

My LIVE buddy absolutely loves FPS's......but he absolutely SUCKS at them. So he'll get all excited about the new CoD or BF game, buy it, get destroyed for a few hours, then quit and never play it again. He's just not very good at them...no twitch skillz.

Titanfall remedies that, as the article states. In addition to being able to call in a titan and roam around death-dealing, there are also quite a few NPCs to shoot at. They are not hard to kill and they give you a bit of XP...and in Attrition mode (deathmatch) they are essential to winning. So even if you get pwned by most human players you run into, you can still feel like you're accomplishing something by killing the bots.

And you lose nothing as a n00b by letting the hardcore players do their thing and duke it out.

It really is a GREAT formula. Awesome game.

I didn't mean the game itself is for noobs. There is plenty of stuff for the hardcore FPS player. Like you are saying, the people who just aren't good can get the feeling of accomplishment, hence it does cater to the participation trophy crowd.

Yeah, we're on the same page. I didn't take any offense at your comment..just used it as a jumping off point.

Battlefield 4 has a lot more going on that Titanfall. ...imagine 32 player Titanfall madness.

Yeah...but they're two totally different games. I'm a BF guy, but I'm not sure it's fair to compare them.

Fwiw, I think the 6v6 formula works pretty well in titanfall.

With the game being in the honeymoon phase, most people are loving it. How long before the community ruins it? What potential weapons or tactics do you think people will try to exploit?

The community doesn't ruin every game.

You really think so? I don't like it. I think it's under rather than overpowered...yes, it can lock on for a one shot kill, but not in a showdown...a carbine or even the semi-auto rifle should win that battle every time. You can one-shot people that aren't looking, but is that any different than wasting them with anything else?

If you run into more than 1 pilot at a time with smart pistol you're dead with most other weapons you'd at least have a chance.

Hmmmmm....I will have to keep an eye on that. I haven't had any problems facing the smart pistol yet.

Ya, probably didn't word that well. I meant if you're carrying the pistol and you run into a group of people you're dead. But if you were using the carbine or smc you'd have a chance. It would be pretty much impossible to get 2 full locks with smart pistol against 2 people.

A large portion of the TF base are people coming from COD. If it is cheap and exploitable, it is going to happen as soon as it hits Youtube.

From what I have watched, I haven't really seen anyone get killed in a head-to-head battle with the smart pistol. Those that I've seen get killed by it have always been shot in the back or just never saw the guy with the smart pistol.

From what I've seen so far on the PC side this game is far better coded than BF4. Hits actually register, you don't die 5 sec after running around a wall because the hitscan is soo far off and behind.

Ah...lol...gotcha.

Yes, you're correct...smart pistol vs. multiple enemies = instant death...unless they're all facing the other way. :)

The engine handles projectiles far differently than BF4. I agree that it's annoying to get killed after reaching cover, but there are tradeoffs.

Default Re: Titanfall

I really enjoy the game.

However, I think it's rediculous that it doesn't have a split-screen multiplayer option(from what I can tell). Honestly, that makes me pretty upset because the response from the dev makes them sound redicilously lazy and applying weak data to gamers as a whole saying that not many people use it. I hate that the video game industry is moving towards that style of play. Especially since not many of my friends have the X1 and therefore they would just come over and play. My girlfriend actually wanted to play as well, but I guess we'll just have to take turns. It's sad that super Mario is more tangibly social than a state of the art game.




Annnnnd that's pretty much my only complaint. I guess I just hadn't realised there was no co-op multiplayer.
