The TITANFALL beta may be over, but now the fun begins in SW. It's time to stake your claim and own your prediction. What will the GS review be? This is where you lay it all on the line. Make your prediction and stick to it.

Here's your brief "How To Hype Thread" reminder:

  • Vote using the poll options above
  • Make a post explaining your vote
  • Stick to your guns and own your choice

A couple extra notes -- Don't under-vote in order to save face, that's just annoying. Go all out, and if you over-hyped or if the majority votes higher than the score, that's okay -- just own it.

And now, some pretty things to look at, and don't forget this still counts as the TITANFALL sticky, so all other related discussions are absolutely, completely, 150% Randy Jackson welcome here.

Go forth and VOTE.

9 for extra lolz and 8 realistically

Also,not sure why you included 8.X and 9.X since GS doesn't give half-points anymore

I'm thinking we're in AAA territory. Even though it's the most fun I've had playing a game in a long, long time, the lack of single player may immediately remove AAAA consideration from some reviewers minds.

If I were reviewing it on pure fun alone, AAAA.

#3 Posted by lostrib (36945 posts) -

I'll say 8, and probably a comment on the lack of offline/singleplayer

#4 Posted by RedentSC (669 posts) -

AA ... its not that good.... honestly

#5 Posted by Chutebox (37214 posts) -

9

all the hype on the webs, including the websites. 9 for sure

Hyping blind here since I haven't played it! D:

I'll go big and hype AAA. The press loved it when it was revealed and they got the chances to play it, always stating it was a game that you needed to play to understand. Well the beta is out and many are explaining how much fun it is. It may not be a game for me but I'm glad to hear so many are loving it.

My hype: AAA

Hoping for a 7 or a 9 .... Dear GS gods not a boring 8 please (although that will still be seen as a flop I'm guessing)

I'll hype as a 9 so as not to be boring myself and on these boards its garnered enough threads to be worthy of that.

#8 Posted by sts106mat (19846 posts) -

Since we've known forever that the game is a MP only title.......why should it be penalised for a lack of a mode it was never to have?

surely the 100% focus on one mode (which seemingly will have a massive hook to keep people playing) should be a positive rather than a negative.

do MMORPG like star wars or LOTR online have single player modes (genuinely dont know) and if not, why do they not get penalised?

#9 Edited by shawn30 (4367 posts) -

I'm 80% sure Titanfall will score a 9, and 20% it will score a 10. I'm thinking 9 though. Launching with 15 maps (9 for the campaign multiplayer) and normal multiplayer, along with 10 game modes

Team Deathmatch
Capture The Titan
Capture The Flag
Hardpoint
Attrition
Uplink
Last Titan Standing
Exfilration
Elimination
ATDM

And just playing the hell out of the game since last Friday, I can without a shadow of a doubt say this game will score a 9 and could be a 10. It is just that damn good, period. My score is a very solid 9.

I predict alot of "I'll just play the better version on my awesome PC" type of posts if it scores a 9. #PUTITONTHEBOARD.

#14 Posted by shawn30 (4367 posts) -

@blue_hazy_basic: My score comes from playing the game itself alot the past couple of days. Kinect Sports for my son is coming soon. And multiplats are games too, lol. Not like the One won't have games to play. Indie games are coming soon too in March. But yeah, Titanfall is the biggest and the best so far.

#15 Edited by mrintro (1354 posts) -

The beta was fun, but I got bored after a day or two. I still think the 6v6 is a dumb idea.

I think that's accurate. As for the perfect score potential, it may not happen at GS (really stingy with that rating), but it's likely to happen elsewhere. Probably more than once, the game is outstanding.

Yea but GS gives a couple of 10's/gen. Titanfall is not going to get a 10.

It also doesn't help that this game is very early gen, so it's even less likely it'll get a perfect 10. I'm struggling to imagine another upcoming shooter being any better, though.

What's wrong with Origin? It used to annoy me that I had to have another launch client on my comp, but I don't care quite as much anymore.

#21 Posted by Joedgabe (5111 posts) -

probably a 9.

#22 Posted by TheFadeForever (1753 posts) -

The hype is a 9 well looks like people are confident about this game unlike one in particular LOL

Meh, Origin's fine, the downloads speeds have been pretty amazing lately as well, considerably faster than Steam.

I'm hyping it 9, though I can see them giving it an 8 with a silly reason. Like @sts106mat says, they shouldn't dock points for it being multiplayer only the same way a singleplayer only game wouldn't have points docked for not including a multiplayer component (unless it was ridiculously short, and then the issue is the length anyway).

Shocking that you would say such a thing. Over half of your posts in the last month have been negative ones towards the Xbone. Would I expect a postive comment from you about its biggest game when you've been so anti Bone? :P

But everyone has an opinion. I would be willing to wager than 90% of the people who've put a few hours int the beta think the game is awesome.

#25 Posted by Heil68 (44493 posts) -

I'm guessing a 9 after playing it. Very solid MP game. Playing the beta made me want to buy the game instead of renting.

#26 Edited by mems_1224 (47134 posts) -

9 on GS but a 10 in my heart.

#27 Edited by hoyalawya (342 posts) -

When will the full game be released to reviewers?

#28 Posted by Wasdie (49907 posts) -

Very high chance of 9/10.

I dont think so since it's a multi play to begin with, Unless of course we celebrate each consoles multi plat scores, if so, yeah for PS4 getting 9.0 on AC Black Flag. Awww yeahhhhh :D

Sorry, i didn't realise i mentioned the xbone 720p. Played PC Beta for a good 4/5 hours.... not impressed. Nothing against the bone...... not relating to Titanfall anyway. its just not an exhilarating game and for me at least, doesn't compare to the likes of Battlefield (isn't battlefield on the bone too?)

As for the Bone, yeah you are right.. its a total POS but thats besides the point here really aint it? thanks for bringing it up though, although love a chance to slam some lems :)

It all depends on who reviews it. Tom =5. Carolyn =7. Kevin =9. Chris =9

#32 Posted by BeardMaster (1580 posts) -

Gots to be a 9. The beta was easily the most unique and refreshing fps experience ive had in a long time.

there are women in it who shoot guns as well as guys, so carolyn cannot claim sexist overtones

#34 Posted by -RocBoys9489- (6260 posts) -

7.5, maybe 8.0. Not a bad game, just nothing very new or refreshing here. No campaign either hurts.

I have very little love for EA basically and since Sim City I'm more or less boycotting.

#36 Edited by lostrib (36945 posts) -

@-RocBoys9489-: they don't do half points anymore. And I believe there is an online multiplayer campaign

Getting a used x1 today with coupe games and extra controller plug and play for 500 bucks. Gonna reserve this game. You guys hype better not disappoint me!

#38 Posted by finalstar2007 (25185 posts) -

Either an 8 or a 7 is my guess

It won't. It won't.

Though I can only truly speak for Titanfall on my computer...

Add me to Live-BroknOath and maybe we an play.

#41 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38216 posts) -

It would probably get a 9 from me on the beta alone but from GS? a big fat boring 8

#42 Posted by Chutebox (37214 posts) -

@Heil68: Will do bud

Hoping for a 9 to see cows cry.

Hidden behind the resolution gate and 6x6 debate, Titanfall will be the true test of integrating cloud-computing into video games. No, I am not talking cloud streaming like Gaikai or OnLive. Titanfall is the first game (that I know of) to use cloud-infrastructure to host servers. Titanfall servers will be hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure which has the ability the scale up & down automatically based on demand. The capacity of Titanfall servers will theoretically be limitless. Players will have the same consistent experience providing that there is a datacenter within acceptable distance and that their internet connection is sufficient. Update to server codes will also be seamless to users - players will not get kicked out during the update. What this could mean is the start of the end of p2p, dedicated servers that always get filled up, and player-hosted servers. As a person who works in IT, I am excited for this.

Tom = "The game i just cod, but hard. 5!"

Carolyn = "You can play as a female character in this game, but woman get killed and mis-represented.. 7!"

Kevin = "Mix of UT, CoD and Hawken, fantastic mp experience 9!"

I don't know much about chris.

My personal hype is 9. I was one of the many people hating on the game... but I got a random beta key, played it.... and oh my god..... loving it so much more than BF4 / CoD Ghosts (which I hated.) .. its even dragged me away from Team Fortress 2 (an achievement in itself).

It won't. Seriously, there's a greater amount of depth here than you think at first, and the action is just a motherf#cking Michael Bay movie at times. "Xbox Record That" will be used for this game more than any other this far. Maybe even all year.

#47 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11845 posts) -

I'm guessing AA, though it does have a chance at AAA

#48 Posted by Vatusus (4616 posts) -

A 9

The media and the public in general have been fapping to this game like crazy. I dont know if it will be deserved or not cause I'm not really into competitive FPS multiplayer but I doubt I'll agree with it. The forums will go ape shit though, so it'll be interesting to see. I'll sit back and enjoy the show

#49 Posted by RR360DD (11949 posts) -

Based on what I played, 9.0. Multiplayer is top notch, really intrigued to see how the campaign multiplayer side of things works.

My fear is that the campaign stuff will drag it down score wise
