792p dafuk? playing at 1080p maxxed out 60fps you scrub lol. Wow, can you get any more butthurt? You're the one in a thread about a game you apparently dont care about, crying your eyes out and super butthurt. Ya it's safe to say that something isn't right with you sir. Cry more, your bitter tears are always welcome. You clown's never stop entertaining us.

Are you okay? You remind me one of those WoW nerds raging.

I don't understand why this game isn't free 2 play. It's multiplayer only.

You don't think much do you?

#1908 Posted by TigerSuperman (2355 posts) -

So people. Microsoft will reveal Titanfall number tomorrow. Oddly, is that not also NPD? Or is that next thursday?

#1909 Posted by Boddicker (2745 posts) -

I'm actually glad it exceeded the hype, but it has yet to be seen how many X1 units this will move.

The PS4's library is looking like a wasteland for the forseeable future.

IGN did a graphics comparison: http://www.ign.com/videos/2014/03/13/titanfall-xbox-one-vs-pc-graphics-comparison

Although I doubt anyone is surprised by the outcome

Anyone check out ign's TitanCoD, I mean fall review? Final Fantasy X hd remake scored higher. :)

Giddy up.

#1916 Posted by musicalmac (23021 posts) -

Noticeably better on computer, clearly more crisp and sharp. I'll tell you this, it looks good maxed at 144p on 27" of LED IPS goodness.

#1917 Edited by Opus_Rea-333 (976 posts) -

The insane textures preset looks pretty good. more so If the card can hold a steady 60 frame.

but it definitely needs teh 3GB or more GGDR5 VRAM. Weird i dont remember Cryisis 1 asking for too much VRAM.

not saying High settings looks bad. they both looks impressive.

Just dropping in to say went MVP 3 matches in a row. The action is epic and with friends is even better. This game has certainly delivered. I am convinced this game will move units.

Really? 1100 PLAYERS on Metacritic say Titanfall = 6.1!!! This game is not deserving of a 9 at all! I would give it a 7 to an 8 at best! As much as I loved the beta, I cant help but feel that my excitement was more about finally getting to play the game moreso than it was because the game was great! Hopefully Respawn will take Titanfall 2 to another level because this just feels like some CoD DLC!!

#1923 Posted by gago-gago (9486 posts) -

Just watched the IGN comparison and they look nearly identical but the XO seems darker. I did try to look for a brightness option but can't find it. But yeah this game is fun alone and fun with friends.

Yes! I'm loving the cow meltdown. I can't make up my mind which cow is more butthurt. I think it's between Juarbles, MisterXMedia, Tormentos, or Sweenix. All have displayed the most Titanfall Butthurt. Loving their bitter tears!

Yeah and how many of those are cows just trolling? 1100 vs. how many units sold? There is enough DC in this thread, no need to more.

#1928 Posted by Antwan3K (2341 posts) -

just got done spending my entire afternoon/evening with Titanfall and WOW.. hands down, the most fun I've had with an online shooter in recent memory.. And I want to put and emphasis on "fun".. The game is downright FUN.. The beta was great but the full game with 15 maps is a masterpiece..

anybody with an Xbox One or a capable PC should do themselves a favor and pick this game up.. The jury is still out on the 360 version but hopefully that one is good too..

absolutely fantastic game and truly a breath of fresh air in the stale FPS multiplayer genre..

#1929 Edited by treedoor (7648 posts) -

Watching someone play some Titanfall on their Xbox One, and I must say it looks way, way better than I thought it would.

#1930 Posted by neversummer75 (980 posts) -

10+ hours into it and this game continues to be EPIC. Most of the time these days, I get bored of games pretty quickly, but I can not seem put this game down. This is the most fun I've had playing a game in a very long time. It really has made me fall in love with gaming all over again. It reminds me of the good old days. This game has delivered on all levels...don't let the biased fan boys make you think otherwise. Now, back to the game! :)

I've entered the same cycle as I usually get into with stuff like Battlefield. Start okay at first, struggle for a bit while I wait for my unlocks, get my unlocks, wreck faces.

It's on Titanfall PC community. ITS ON!!

Being extracted is the best feeling, even if you don't kill anything but get extracted you feel like a winner.

You need to make sure to keep hydrated, with all that crying you're doing you're in danger of serious dehydration. Also, you should be flattered that Danny mentioned you and your buddies in his vid.

Danny O's the man, and his comments are spot on. He also references a peanut butter and jell-o sandwich, and that really has my wheels turning. I'd never dared imagine such a thing, but I think I have some experimenting to do on my next weekend.

Just checking in to see how some cows night went playing Resogun and other free indies.

I on the other hand recorded some epic moments from TitanFall and will be editing them in the MS Studio. Later I will load them to Skydrive for all to see.

Get over yourself, Titanfall is a good game, but it ain't the surviour, it's just an online shooter, same old same old, yes it's fresh but from what i've played myself on PC, i have to say all your playing for is a titan every 3mintues and repeat, and thats it, and there is no single player, and it's the only good game Xbox One has going for it for a few months.

No One is on damage control for a multiplatform game, which in the end will be on PS4 well Titanfall 2 will be on it and that will be the better game any how, you can all worship this multiplat game all you want but it's only going to be short lived.

Ask your fellow cows why they're damage controlling this multiplat game, seeing as they're the ones doing the DC, you aren't really this thick can you?.

In fact your whole post is also damage control, jesus, cows really are special people.

lol yea ok, I'm damage controlling :S when i have the game on my pc running at a higher frame rate easily and better resolution to Xbox One, and i have a PS4 for all the rest of the multiplatforms,I mean i'm still waiting for a reason to buy an Xbox One and there isn't any. I hope to god there is a reason sometime next year

Seeing as all TF news goes here, Misterx ain't gonna like that underlined part.
DF:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/di...tech-interview

What made the situation somewhat unique is that it was the first time that Microsoft's Azure cloud platform had really been stress-tested for gameplay. Respawn isn't making any grand claims about the cloud as a gateway to a next-gen nirvana ("In the end it's just a bunch of computer capacity. You can do anything with the cloud that you can do with a bunch of computers," says Baker) but it is a highly innovative approach to tackling the issue of multiplayer infrastructure which could open the door to a wider array of developers.

Titanfall may well be one of the most hyped and well-funded launches of 2014, but the implications here are intriguing - smaller developers can tap into the Azure infrastructure and don't have to take on the enormous financial burden of buying a server network with worldwide coverage. Bespoke server code created by the developer runs on Azure, and it could be tasked to do anything. In Respawn's case, it's a dedicated server, with trimmings - for example, running the AI cannon fodder drones that populate the levels. There is potential here for something more, and a mature network to make it happen. Perhaps the biggest revolution of Microsoft's cloud isn't game-changing graphics, but instead accessibility. The only question really is how much CPU resource is given to game creators - and did Respawn need to push Microsoft for functionality that simply wasn't present?

Client-side, Respawn has based Titanfall on the Source engine, but it has effectively been re-built from the ground up. In our last Respawn interview, producer Drew McCoy said that "I hate to say that it's the Source Engine" because so much had changed. From our experience with the beta, we saw a piece of technology significantly transformed. Source was never particularly well-threaded, and there was no DirectX 11 support. More than that, the tech simply wasn't built for the kind of ultra-low latency feedback that the erstwhile Infinity Ward team members demand from a satisfying shooter.

Respawn is also talking about what sounds rather like extensive Xbox One optimisations, including a revision for the 1408x792 native rendering resolution of the game on the Microsoft console.

"We've been experimenting with making it higher and lower. One of the big tricks is how much ESRAM we're going to use, so we're thinking of not using hardware MSAA and instead using FXAA to make it so we don't have to have this larger render target," Baker tells us. "We're going to experiment. The target is either 1080p non-anti-aliased or 900p with FXAA. We're trying to optimise... we don't want to give up anything for higher res. So far we're not 100 per cent happy with any of the options. We're still working on it. For day one it's not going to change. We're still looking at it for post-day one. We're likely to increase resolution after we ship."

"A lot of the performance is on the GPU side. There's still room for optimisation and we're still working on it," Baker says. "Ideally it would have been a rock-solid 60 all the time when we shipped but obviously when there's big fights going on, lots of particle effects, lots of physics objects... we're still working to condense the systems, make them more parallel so we can hit 60 all the time, ideally."

Titanfall's '792p' resolution and frame-rate dips call into question - once again - the power of the Xbox One's hardware architecture. The GPU - based on AMD's Bonaire part - seems to be falling well short of the sort of performance we would expect from the architecture, making us wonder if the custom ESRAM is proving to be more of a problem than it should be.

As our session with Baker comes to an end, it's time to address the great unknown. Just what is going on with the Xbox 360 version of the game? We wanted to know about resolution, frame-rate and feature parity. Two weeks from release and still nobody has seen the game.

"Yeah, we've actually been playing it almost every day here. Bluepoint's developing it and we've mostly been hands-off, letting them make their own technical decisions," he says. "It seems pretty close [in terms of] feature parity and they're still working on getting the frame-rate up. I'm not sure about the resolution..."
