I cant believe people are still doing damage control.

damage control can only exist if the game is exclusive, so get lost chump.

Evidently not.

Not at all, cows wanted the game to fail and now all the excuses are coming out, that's damage control. If it was on PS4, they would be as excited as they are for that Destiny bs.

Been away for a bit, cows still butt hurt?

im pretty sure the weaker cows have committed suicide. Haz hasn't shown up for a bit or at all in this thread. Juarbles and MisterX are trying to hold the fort but its being overrun

Just imagine how good the game would be if there were more pilots and no bots and Titans were harder to get, and a good Single Player campaign as well.

It just doesn't have that competitiveness I enjoy in an online FPS game. I got really bored at times during the beta.

Looks like Titanfall has passed the first test: meeting the hype and being a genuinely great game. Good for Respawn. Curious to see how many XB1s it'll move, because that's possibly the even bigger test.

game should be out for PS4 sooner now than you think, but by then i don't think nobody will care much.

Titanfall 1 will never be on PS4, and if it sells well and systems over the next 6 months MS will cut the check necessary to keep Titanfall on Xbox/PC. Its not about how many consoles sell the first month, but the consistent sales going forward being an improvement than the 4 months that came before it. If MS deems that TF is key to the eco-system and mindshare of the One, they will and can write the check needed.

Why is Titanfall only 792p on X1, shouldn't it be higher?

Why? The Xbone is barely stronger than the 360.

Word in town is that the 360 version got delayed because there was barely any difference between the 2 console versions.

Some pc site is saying that the engine used in titan fall is older and less complex than the engine that powers decade+ old Count Strike, rofl.

Yet Titanfall has better textures and has much more advanced lighting. Even Lost Coast looks completely outdated by Titanfall.

Beautiful.

Ugly as fuck.

I hope you found this post informative my friend.

Two different art styles.

Apparently TF on Xbone is not a smooth experience according to GB and Kotaku.

From Gerstmann as well.

"The frame rate in Titanfall is uneven on the Xbox One and though it's usually fine, it can get downright nasty in specific situations. In one Last Titan Standing match--where every player spawns in a robot suit--several players crammed their mechs into a tight area and began duking it out, and the frame rate dived down to what must have been single digits per second. Even out in wider areas, the game feels a little hitchy from time to time, and there's noticeable tearing throughout. The visuals in Titanfall look nice, but that's mostly due to some solid art and interesting design, not the performance. As of this writing, I haven't seen enough of the PC version to know how well it runs."

http://www.giantbomb.com/reviews/this-is-not-a-titanfall-review-yet/1900-630/

Damn dude, single digits? What the shit?

Thank God for PC version

totally.

I thought frame rate was king lemmings? How the hell are you going to remain competitive when you guys are struggling at -10 fps, lol.

The games reviewing great, but the game has some issues. Still not stopping a great score after great score. Cows, I know its a sad day and the damage control has been epic, but really, isn't it time to start hyping Infamous. Great graphics and 1080p don't trump a great playing game, hence Titanfall taking a wet shit on Killflop :) You're welcome for that public service announcement.

I still don't understand why Cows are butt hurt. Just buy it on your uber awesome PC Cows.

#820 Posted by Zidaneski (8442 posts) -

That's great that TitanFall looks to be shaping up well, Mech combat is what I'm interested in but I'll wait till I hear what people playing experience well after release since I hate for great games to be destroyed by later patches that cater to the whiners. Really annoying when devs look at their "data" and mess stuff up that wasn't even a problem.

#821 Posted by foxhound_fox (87329 posts) -

I have a feeling that there will be a sharp turn around in the Xbone vs. PS4 sales war. Especially if inFAMOUS: SS ends up under 90 on Metacritic.

#822 Edited by LanceX2 (305 posts) -

funny how I didn't notice any hard dips in last titan standing

Remember when these threads got 2k-3k comments in a couple of hours after reviews?..Yeah... I miss old SW... despite some laughs, things are too slow and tamed compared to the crazyness we used to get.. ah well...

#825 Edited by Grey_Eyed_Elf (3676 posts) -

Trends setting standards?... In a perfect world standards set the trends.

Big named company add's mech's to a game and a little Parkour and its a 9.0?

Shadowrun:

Boils down to a buying system... Basically Counter Strike, you start with money and the better you play the more money you get the next round BUT Shadowrun introduced the following:

You chose a race... A class to play as and each would have pro's and con's:

  • Troll
  • Elf
  • Dwarf
  • Human

Not only did it offer you standard weapons to buy but it also offered abilities you could buy split in two categories... Tech and Magic:

Tech:

  • Glider
  • Enhanced Vision
  • Smartlink
  • AntiMagic Generator
  • Wired Reflexes
  • Grenade

Magic:

  • Tree of Life
  • Resurrect
  • Strangle
  • Gust
  • Smoke
  • Teleport
  • Summon

The level of gameplay available in this game is to this day for a FPS game is unmatched and it came with 9 varied maps with superb level design and 3 game mods 8 years ago and scored a 6.9?

Standards should set the trends for the industry not the other way around.

If Shadowrun was released now with better visuals and a big company hyping it what do you think the score would be?

Sorry had to get that off my chest.

I played the Beta for Titanfall and as a FPS gamer for almost two decades now its hype confuses me.

I don't see that happening. There will be a nice two month bump for the X1 but im not blind. PS4 is selling even though it don't have games

I do see it happening. If this is the best big "thing" for online competitive multiplayer, and it isn't available on the PS4. Hell, if Microsoft sells it right, we could see a repeat of the 360 being the online platform of choice despite the costs because everyone's friend(s) have them.

PS4 is selling on hype. It's not getting a "huge" game until September (Destiny).

#829 Posted by chessmaster1989 (29059 posts) -

Don't really understand why everyone's so into this game, played some of the beta and it was nothing special. Maybe just not my cup of tea.

That was a beast of a hype thread. It was active some months before the release/review and kept being active for quite a few months afterwards. The more "normal" hype threads though, amassed 2k-3k-4k posts with some ease back then. Nowadays it's a struggle to just break the 1k barrier :S

Everytime I see your sig I want to go watch the "Jaynestown" episode for some reason, even though I don't think that still of Mal is from that episode.

Who is really going to buy an Xbox One for this?? I think it was a mistake to make the game Multiplatform. It's a great game, but I feel it's going to backfire for Microsoft.

nah. it'll give it a sales bump for sure but the fact that this game is available on two other platforms with much, much higher user bases, i don't see this sales war taking any kind of a "sharp" turn.

also, what does infamous' meta score have to do with anything? hell, titanfall is already in the 80's. it means shit.

How about you wait until the 360 version comes out? There won't be a noticeable difference. Why do you think it was delayed by 2 weeks?

how is this game selling so far on pc? Will the PC competitive community adopt this game? or will they throw it out like an unwanted child?

#843 Posted by Youoweme (14 posts) -

LOL, so after all the insane hype this game has been getting, it only has an 87 on Metacritic thus far. Wow!
And this multiplat was supposed to save the Xbox One from ceasing to exist in the near future?
The score is good, I will admit that, but it's not spectacular at all. So in that sense, this game has failed miserably to live up to the hype.

And the sad part is, this was Microsoft's only hope, from here on out Sony will take a huge dump on the entire Xbox division.

#844 Posted by LanceX2 (305 posts) -

X1 is 3:1 to PC and 360 combined
