Man lems are looking really desperate trying to bash this game even though it met the hype. Sad creatures. Bored of Titanfall already? I guess jealousy like this is unavoidable when you've got mediocre games like Dead Rising 3 and Flopza to keep you entertained outside of Titanfall.

I'm off to the store to pick up my copy. I'm gonna enjoy playing the best looking next gen game out there with its fun gameplay and whatnot while lems cry in this thread lol.

So how is it cows brag how untouchable their devs are all the time and then they only hype their games AA and call it a success if hype is met. Most farmers cut their cows balls off and it seems like they all wound up here.

#1705 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38216 posts) -

Played about an hour. Visually the game is really really damn good. Very impressed

Naughty Gods and MM>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> anything M$ has. Let's not fool ourselves here.

When you have god tier devs like them you can't help but to praise them. Sucker Punch is just one of the many studios Sony has and a AA is all that is needed from them to keep a steady stream of solid games inbetween godly releases from our god tier devs.

Yeah I've put about 30 hours into DSII over 3 days which is a LOT for me these days. Almost have it complete too

Ah crap now you've gone and done it. Now he's gonna shower you with a ton of posts telling you how unhealthy that is and acting like he's your mother lmao

#1709 Edited by ominous_titan (729 posts) -

I'm a multiple system owner and supporter, never found any of naughty dogs games to be that great. Tlou game play honestly I find boring and really uninspiring and doubt I'll ever complete it. It's like a metal gear solid with a post apocalyptic skin and post apocalyptic game play.

Edit: I played ds2 (on ps3godbox)for 14 hours yesterday smoked a pack of cigarettes and drank about 14 cups of coffee. How's that for healthy living ha

Almost 4x the views and 3x the posts in this hype thread as opposed to the Titanfall hype thread. This game is shaking things up a bit. I'd be picking it up in a couple hours if I could find a midnight launch, so I'll get it tomorrow afternoon after work. Let the collectathon begin!

Uh no. That is the 3rd hype thread for Titanfall now. One of them had well over 2K posts alone.

Go away lemmings. No one wants you here or anyway.

Climbing to the Space Needle was great. It's great how they've nailed the atmosphere in game, there's a very oppressive vibe throughout.

@gago-gago said:

Just wondering how come games on a Playstation system are only hyped AA while games on other systems are hyped higher now-a-days? Has the standards of quality for Playstation games sunk in recent years or something? Or the confidence of their fans sunk? Maybe both? Anyway Infamous hype before and meeting the AA hype isn't enough to hype me to get a PS4 yet. I'm still waiting for that huge AAA system seller type of PS4 game or just more good games on the PS4. But looking at upcoming release dates this year, nothing has caught my attention yet. Maybe next year.

You never hype high on GS, they love their 8 scores, plus they have a tendency to score lower than the avg.

#1729 Edited by Celtic_34 (1286 posts) -

It's awesome. If you like infamous it's really more of the same with better graphics and style but still pretty awesome? Fun addictive gameplay. Not setting the world on fire though as far as anything revolutionary. Review scores don't mean much to me because if you like infamous as a game it's about as good as i'd expect anyways. Infamous has always been a step below some of the AAA titles but some people are going to like it more and for what it is which is just fun. It's like saying frogger isn't an AAA game because it's gameplay is simplistic or something.

I like it better than Titanfall personally. I'm not big on first person shooters unless they are something really extraordinary. For what it is Infamous is just as good. Just a different kind of game.

Fun=check

Graphics=Check

Sound=check

It isn't the deepest game in the world b ut has replay value with different playthroughs and powers you can get. Good platformng, controls, powers etc....... It's the best game of the new console generation so far imo.

Is it lightyears ahead of some of last gen's best like GTA 5, Skyrim, Mass Effect, The Last of Us, Dark Souls etc... Probably not. Some of those games have more things to do, deeper story lines, challenging and good graphics too and the leap isn't mindblowing or anything but the game runs smooth and looks great and plays great. Infamous is always fun to play and a good time killer imo. It's not going to kill you like Dark Souls. It just flows well and is fun to play.

Because it's infamous does that mean it's any less of a game then some of these others? I don't think so. if you like infamous and it's your kind of game it's about as good as anything. I don't think there is anything overly wrong with it. It's a well executed infamous game for new consoles.

Delson is different than Cole. Cole was more hardedged. Delsin is more like a cross between Peter Parker, Nathan Drake and a cyberpunk firestarter kid. He's fine....... Kind of a dweeb but whatever.

Seattle and the environment is very cool and atmospheric. Best in series so far. I think the graphics and environment are a big jump from last gen and worth the price of admission alone.

Everything flows together so well. It is smooth and looks great. PLays great.

If you own a next gen console I don't see why you wouldn't buy this? It's really the first game that is taking advantage of the new hardware.

Honestly the controls feel so tightt and flinging from rooftop to rooftops is just so freaking fluid, damn good game mechanics.

Apparently Infamous preorders (1 million+) alone outsold what TitanFall has in its first week (700k+).

Damn

And this is where I reiterate what I said earlier in the thread. inFamous wins where it matters. More people will enjoy it. More people will talk about it. AA on PS4 means system seller. AAA on XBone equals a publisher rushing to the negotiating table to secure rights to make sure the sequel is on PS4.

Obligatory #Dealwithit Lems (not you, Tyloss)

So since sales are where it matters Wii Sports is one of the best games of all time, and Wii won last gen? All I'm saying is that you have to pick a side and stick with it. Changing your evidence to conveniently fit your argument is bs.

Great game for cows. Titanfall is a great game for lemmings. Gamers win...

It all matters. Also, Titanfall was a great game for herms. It was a technically plagued game for the Lems. Get the facts straight.

Hmmm...I own it on Xbox One. Doesn't seem technically plagued to me. Perhaps you are talking out of your ass because you don't own it.

I don't have to own an XBone to know you are playing the game barely above 720p, have muddier textures and playing an online-only fps sub 60fps. I also know you have occasional freezes or hiccups, mainly when the titan is dropped. Turns out, I have a friend with an XBone and I have Titanfall on PC.

Difference is night and day.

Hahaha, lems still crying expecting a 70 metacritic when Seattle's Finest stood toe to toe with "the most anticipated game of the year." Delicious.

Just copped. Movement is fast and fluid. Game is beautiful - shadowing is really impressive and those "radically different" screenshots were totally unrepresentative as I already knew. Main character is a lot more likable than the shitposters suggested too.

Sup tryhard? oh so close to a 79 lol

I'm already half way through the game, objectively speaking it looks nice but the game is extremely repetitive, thank god I got it off Gamefly because if I paid $60 for a 10 hour game with limited replay value I would of tossed my PS4 out the window.\

Now I'll just wait for the idiot Sony fanboys to say that I don't have the game or have a PS4, because god forbid someone doesn't suck off every Sony exclusive, I already got enough flak from idiots when I said TLOU was overrated.

You pretty much confirm my thoughts on the game, based on the previous two titles.

There is just not much gameplay in these kind of games... or variety, and incredibly unimaginative sub-genre. action-sandbox.

I think I will wait before buying a PS4, there just seems to be nothing worth having that I can't get on PC.

The Story is really mediocre too, but the absolute worst part of the game is the main character. At least Cole from Infamous 1 and 2 was kind of cool, Delsin reminds me ALOT of Andrew Garfield as Spiderman.

I can see why cows have such a hard on for this game, all flash and no substance just like 95% of Sony's 1st party offerings.

@tormentos

So a SP only 12 hour game with no replay value is worth 60 dollars but a MP only game that people will sink 500+ hours into isn't? Even the best and longest SP games like skyrim only give out 100-200 hours of gametime, while a MP title like halo, CoD, or titanfall easily give people well over 500 hours. In the end, people will spend way less per hour of use on titanfall then they will any SP game. For me between the alpha, beta, and full release I'm way over 60 hours which is enough to beat infamous 5 times over. How is that not worth it? Even if i loved infamous no way in hell would i play it 5 times through. Hell i loved ryse, but only played the SP twice through for a total of about 20 hours, but it did manage well over 50 hours in the co-op and am sitting at a level 300 something. MP games to me and most people are worth more then SP games due to the amount of hours you get out of them


Multiplayer can be play for longer hours but is more repetitive than single player will ever be,never the less Titanfall isn't competing directly with Infamous both are completely different games,it competes with games like Killzone,COD and BF4 which do have single player,in COD case the kind of content COD has vs Titanfall is not even close we are talking here earth to moon difference,online Titanfall doesn't has has the content COD has,offline it has nothing.


It hurts my brain to respond to your post, but I have to cause you make zero sense. Multiplayer is something new every time you play it, and if its good multiplayer you keep playing it over and over with friends and people you don't know. A great multiplayer game will always be of a greater value than a single player only game. Now mind you, some people don't give a crap about multiplayer. But those that do will play multiplayer tons more over a long period of time.

Second, for your Cow-Mentality, here are some facts: Metacritic scores:

Killzone Shadowfall - 73

Call of Duty: Ghosts - 78

Battlefield: 86 (but its mostly broken, lol)

Titanfall: 86

Having single-player doesn't mean its good. Having more modes doesn't mean they are good. The overall package is all that matters and score wise on MC, which Cows love, Titanfall is a titan over everything and equal too BF 4. More isn't always better. Food for thought.

You have no idea how many times i've heard that question in the past week but sadly im a sucker for anything infamous or Sucker Punch related.. had to get the LE for the stuff it came with it ( especially the hat ).

Graphics are of course insane but the water splash effects underwhelm, but only in comparison to the rest of the game.

Pure eye candy.
