[QUOTE="silversix_"]

[QUOTE="HadOne2Many"] I think maybe you are giving the Division and TW3 too much credit, but the thing is you weren't there and I wasn't there. Those who were unanimously agreed Titanfall was the best thing there. That alone should be a clue for anyone interested in games that there is something special about it. HadOne2Many

But those people strong point of Tintanfall were three things. jetpacks as if this was never seen in a video game, double jump and live demonstration behind closed doors with 14 people playing. Like how the fk is this impressive, *serious question*? Not only that's nothing impressive but its far from tones of awards worthy. I also don't think that im giving The Division or TW3 (especially the division) too much credit. yes i know its an Ubicrap title and these graphics may and probably will be significantly downgraded but from what was show, it was impressive as hell. I've never seen a video game with a world so filled with things in it and its even more impressive knowing its an mmo which means its huge and THAT detailed.

I don't know what say, like I said I wasn't there. Here's the answer from someone who was though: http://kotaku.com/what-made-titanfall-so-impressive-at-e3-577212955

Stephen Totilo would be one of those spreading the word on shows such as Bonus Round on GT so its hard to take his words seriously

So I guess that leaves you with two choices. Wait and see what the fuss is all about when the came comes out, or keep asking questions we don't have answers for.

The freerunning part is the only part that looks cool to me. Other than that yeah it looks like a COD clone with Mechs

[QUOTE="mems_1224"][QUOTE="silversix_"]Hmm lets see,,,, Bioshock, Half Life series, DeusEx series, Metro series? Just some random ones.

oh, so shooters with bad gameplay? sounds great. :roll:

9/10, 9/10, 9/10 all shitty, yes :roll:

I never said they were shitty, I said they had bad gameplay. Learn to read.

Adults who use to play proper FPS like Quake, Unreal and Halflife have mostly grown up had children and got jobs.

It's sadly mostly 14 year olds who started on Halo and Call Of Duty who are left. Gaming use to be cool.

Duel stick is joke when it comes to fps's. It's not nearly fast enough.

It has bots in the multiplayer game play, that's what killed the hype for me.

I don't see the hype for Killzone, do I need to make a thread about it?.. no I don't.

How do they have bad gameplay?, I give you bad gunplay for Bioshock and Deus Ex 1.  All those games have more complex and better gameplay then COD.

Yea it does alot of things generally not seen in multiplayer, which gets me excited for a fresh online shooter experience, but makes me wary as the untested formula is so different from the traditional that the concept might just completely fall apart in practice. Im catiously optimistic about the game,

Bots are not real players and don't belong in the multiplayer. Most games with bots die very quickly, or never even get started.

lol, you owned those strawmen pretty good, way to go.

You have to be into shooters and massive amounts of action to appreciate this game. If a gentle FF game or Little Big Planet is your speed, then you def won't understand the hype for this.
#75 Posted by xboxiphoneps3 (2280 posts) -
wait there is bots in multiplayer? wtf??
#76 Posted by musicalmac (22851 posts) -

BTW, bots make a game like this 100x better than without them. Co-op with friends against bots, single player against bots, etc. No bots in a multi-focused game suck.

Wtf? Get with the times man. Bots and players all mixed in together and a multiplayer campaign. It will touch the heavens.

Bots aren't exactly a new idea.

 

No single basic element is a new idea in gaming anymore. But implementing bots as part of the gameplay instead of temporary replacements for players or practice dummies in training mode is certainly not the norm.

 

large environments, parkour, jet packs, mech vs mech/mech vs soldier/soldier vs soldier combat, as well as AI bots wrapped up in a arcade shooter makes the sum of its parts a fairly unique multiplayer experience. Far more unique than the vast majority of multiplayer fps games on the market. Not to mention these appear to be core elements that are integral to the gameplay and balanced rather than throw away gimmicks. In other words you dont just sit around waiting for the mech to spawn so you can ride around in it for a few minutes every now and then... and the jet packs arent just there to have fun zipping around in, but are neessary components of platforming and efficient map traversal.

Yeah I am not jumping on the hypewagon either. I couldn't care less about Titanfall. At best it is a $5 Steam purchase.

so youd rather play against bots and amongst bots instead of real people in multiplayer?? LOL... idk what to tell you man either your terrible at shooter games or just plain weird

#96 Posted by MrShoot3mUp187 (7 posts) -
Who really wants a bot as a teammate? I bet you a thousand doll hairs( lol ) this game flops because no one wants to play with bots.

I want the PvP to be traditional. The campaign with bots will still have PvP in it. This is what I am looking forward to. And no, I kick ass at shooters.

I don't get the hype, but then again I'm not a fan of online shooters, hate the repetition of playing from only a handful of boxed-in feeling maps and I've seen mechs before, I've seen jetpacks before, I've seen mechs and troops all at once before. I'd be more enticed if it wasn't just an online shooter and had a good story to it, online-only games always seem like lazy cash-ins because they're easier to make.

#99 Posted by MrShoot3mUp187 (7 posts) -
I want the game but not the bots
#100 Posted by Soul4Survivor (88 posts) -

Forget the meme...I"m talking about it winning all those E3 awards and getting hype all over the internet. What's is the deal? It looks like your average multiplayer-based shooter with robots and graphics that look current gen. Is there something I don't know?

percech
