Haven't posted on here in a few months this site is way different than I recalled it.

Anyways, how does everyone playing Titanfall feel about it so far? I think it's a little bare bones, and the "campaign" is a f**cking joke, but overall the gameplay is so refined it that I find myself playing it over other games when I get the chance. Nice to not have frame-rate issues ala the Xbone too, even though the graphics aren't really anything spectacular.

Game's good. I think nothing spectacular, but fun to play.

#3 Posted by Gladestone1 (5507 posts) -

Its different an fun..The mechs are a blast to play in..Its very fast paced..Graphics arent bad..Its got some cod stuff, player cards are amazing..Like pack of cards you earn an can use an burn its called..

+1 for Chvrches. I like it a lot. Stryder titan is my favorite.

#5 Posted by mhofever (3952 posts) -

Having a blast with it. like Forsaken said, it's nothing spectacular but it's mighty fun. The transitioning and parkour seems so fluid and it's fun using the Titans. Usually playing CTF or Domination feels typically the same with all FPS games, TItanfall makes it really intense. Multiple Titans could be battling it out while you cap a point. The game virtually has no campaign, the "campaign" missions are pretty much Multiplayer with NPC dialogue talking over. Controls are very smooth and decent frame rates too, considering it's the Source Engine.

It may be a little bare bones but the foundation of it is pretty damn fun.

Just kidding, had to do that! I am really enjoying it a lot. The game is non stop action.

#7 Posted by Jimmy_Russell (477 posts) -

Gameplay aside, it's a console port with auto-aiming still enabled for the PC. That's all I really have to say about that.

#8 Posted by ferrari2001 (16760 posts) -

Haven't played it.

#9 Posted by Cwagmire21 (5887 posts) -

Game is fun. Waiting on the optimization patch/AMD drivers.

#10 Posted by slipknot0129 (5484 posts) -

What other ways can they innovate in a fps? I think Titanfall is innovative enough to feel fresh. Its been fun to me.

I enjoyed the beta, but I haven't bought the game yet.

Uhm, aside from the smart pistol, nothing else has aim assist.

Unless you plug a controller into your PC and have aim-assist on. I suppose you could disable it and play with a KB&M with aim-assist off, if you like playing with a handicap.

Ikr? I love them so much. Their music is addicting.

... and yah for those concerned about aim assist, it's only an option if you're using a gamepad. Their is no such corresponding option for mouse and keyboard users. Basically it's there so people using a gamepad aren't ~that~ screwed competitively.

What kind of idiot plays a shooter on the PC with a controller? Rofl. Scrubs these days.

#17 Posted by FelipeInside (25174 posts) -

I wasn't going to buy it but all my COD friends did so they talked me into it (peer pressure dammit)

Game is fun like COD on steroids. Have just played modes for now, will probably try the campaign tomorrow.

Performance is perfect on my spec in all maps, no slowdowns with everything to max except AA and AF which I always set on minimum.

Did anyone else see the EASTER EGG for Half Life in the training section?

Alot better than I expected, the mechs are fun, the parkour is great, the controls are good, gameplay is good and the level design is great. I do wish there was dedicated servers and some private options to get huge groups together, but other than that its quite fun. Probably my favorite faster paced shooter since Unreal2k4 and TF2. Also havn't had any issues yet in 30 hours, no crashes, no fps issues. Havn't liked any of the COD games after COD4 at all, but this is a blast, the parkour and mechs together realy add to things I must say. I am just glad they went more for gameplay and the parkour/mechs instead of just a shit ton of guns and just infantry battles.down corridors all the time. Not perfect but alot better than I expected and canbe very addicting.

#19 Posted by Gladestone1 (5507 posts) -

Is this game the death of cod..Will titanfall run amuch an crush its predecesser..Will titanfall become the be all game..Is this a contender for goty..If so you havent played the funnest game of the year, pick it up an find out for yourself..Screw the ea label..This game is entertaining..

Its fun, but nothing special or innovating like all these critics claim to be, but yurk auto aim pistol.

Yeah that smart pistol is annoying, but just keep moving side to side fast and it can't lock on

Fixed. There is absolutely no reason to severely handicap yourself in a PC FPS with a controller. Even if you suck with a KB/M and are good with a controller you will still be BETTER with a KB/M. The only thing saving the bads in Titanfail is that plugging in a controller enables aim assist, that plus the autoaim pistol. Further proof EA is just catering to bads in this game, which is one of the many reasons I'm not buying it.

#26 Posted by BSC14 (3610 posts) -

It's ok. Decent fun but its not going to take the place of BF4 for me. Personally I think blops2 was a better overall game.... but I like it still.

I get AA, but why not max AF? With your specs maxing AF is a negligible performance cost and it makes games look so much better.

Me. I like playing with a controller when it has aim assist. When the game doesnt have aim assist I play with the mouse and keyboard.

Its fun playing with the controller when there is aim assist.

Depends on the game. So make it use of it and the game does look better, others the game looks similar to lower settings but just takes a toll on performance.

Also depends on the type of game. For an online competitive MP FPS, I will always choose performance over a bit more graphics.

So you like being pathetic? I don't get it. You play a competitive game with a handicap, how is that even fun? It's basically cheating.

I doubt it. Anybody using a controller to play a shooter on a PC is a scrub. Now flying with that controller would be a different story. But since Titanfall doesn't offer that, it's pretty pathetic.

#33 Posted by Allurez (31 posts) -

@jimmy_russell: You think so? Because Titanfall was initially in development for PC only. Respawn wasn't planning for a Xbox One version of the game.

Can you sound anymore like an elitist? This isn't counter strike or Quake, precision isn't the key to winning. Most modern shooters are built with the controller in mind. My friend simply finds it far more comfortable to use a controller for a game like this. Mouse and keyboard isn't going to give you a huge advantage in a game like Titanfall. People are jumping around and wall running constantly. This game is more about outmaneuvering your opponents, especially in TItan fights. He can also play the game the way he wants. PC gaming isn't about hardcore wannabes like you it's about choice and diversity.

don't be silly, the only way to make shooter fun and competitive is pixel perfect mouse tapping.... super fun and not totally old hat.

You need to spend more time walking down 2 corridors crouch-tapping to victory.

Expecting people to play on an even footing is elitism? You really need to brush up on your definitions.

You are calling people who want to play with controllers idiots and scrubs. Obviously you are trying to make yourself look superior to people who game with controllers.

Elitist

Well firstly, I am superior to people who use controllers. I don't require aim assist in PC games. That makes me better than those who use controllers. That isn't elitism. It's a simple statement of fact.

And secondly, they are scrubs. If you need aim assist in PC shooters, you are a scrub. Simple as that. Again, not elitism. Just a simple statement of fact.

As for the idiots part, well, that's just my opinion. I think it's supremely idiotic to play a shooter on a PC with a controller.

Using a different control scheme doesn't make you superior. It's just a different way of controlling the game. In Titan Fall's case, I don't see how any other is better then the other.

Mouse and Keyboard has specific advantages over a controller. It has more precise aiming and you can quickly turn around and react more accurately. How does a little bit of aim assistance make you any better? Especially when people who use controllers also have specific disadvantages. If you are even half decent at using mouse and keyboard, people who use controllers shouldn't even bother you. Do you consider people who have advanced gaming mouses and keyboard scrubs? Someone out there has more accurate mouse movement and more buttons then I do.

Again, not all shooters work well with a mouse and keyboard. A game like Titan Fall works well with both M+B and gamepad. I'd argue that Titan Fall works better with a gamepad because certain titan abilities and movements require you to hold down keys which makes it hard to move around. I think having a choice is more important then forcing everyone to one control scheme. Even in the mouse and keyboard world, there are hundreds of different mouse and keyboard schemes that have clear disadvantages and advantages.

Controllers don't bother me. Aim assist does. Thus, with this specific game, it's one in the same.

Of course people should have the choice. What they shouldn't have is aim assist. An even playing field is pretty fundamental to competitive shooters. Giving one control scheme aim assist is patently unfair to those who don't use controllers and have no wish to.

It's fun so far but I think some of the campaign matches are far too short. I guess that too short is better than too long, but it barely feels like you are getting into a match and boom switching sides or evac. I don't consider it has a campaign at this point, instead it has some optional intro videos and voice overs. I would have liked to have seen a free roam for the mp maps or another single player / co-op mode that you could explore some of the maps.

Of course people should have the choice. What they shouldn't have is aim assist. An even playing field is pretty fundamental to competitive shooters. Giving one control scheme aim assist is patently unfair to those who don't use controllers and have no wish to.

It would actually be more unfair if controllers didn't have aim assist. Aim assist is not as big of an advantage as you are making it out to be.

No, it would be perfectly fair. Again, people should be free to use controllers if they wish, but they shouldn't be rewarded for using them by getting aim assist.

No it wouldn't be fair. If people who use controllers want to stay on a competitive level with mouse and keyboard, they should get aim assist.

Most of my friends that play COD on Playstation turn Aim Assist OFF, they find it easier without it.

Gameplay aside, it's a console port with auto-aiming still enabled for the PC. That's all I really have to say about that.

Uhm, aside from the smart pistol, nothing else has aim assist.

Unless you plug a controller into your PC and have aim-assist on. I suppose you could disable it and play with a KB&M with aim-assist off, if you like playing with a handicap.

KB&M without aim assist is a handicap compared to controller with aim-assist?

Surely, you can't be serious...

Then KB+M users should get aim assist. It should be all or none.

That makes no sense though. You're implying that compared to a someone using a controller with auto-aim a keyboard/mouse user is at a disadvantage; I would disagree and say that this is not true, that even with the perceived advantage auto-aim might provide, a gamepad user will always be at a disadvantage compared to a keyboard/mouse user. The inclusion of auto-aim merely minimizes the discrepancy between the two. It certainly doesn't turn the tables. As such, it makes for a more fair game between those that wish to use a gamepad and those that prefer the more traditional PC-gaming keyboard/mouse setup. Looking at it through this light as a keyboard/mouse user myself I see this as entirely acceptable and frankly, I'm surprised more people here don't. Implying that we using a mouse deserve our own auto-aim out of some bizarrely exaggerated sense of fairness and/or pathetic graspings of elitism is therefore, in my opinion, quite stupid. Just my thoughts. =)
