Poll: What will TITANFALL score on GS? (244 votes)

AAAA (10) 11%
AAA (9.X) 46%
AA (8.X) 34%
A (7.X) 5%
Below 7 4%

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.

What's up now son.

Not really a big deal. Rather play a great game, than act like that marcos guy on twitter.

Wow...reminds me of when PNF lost his shit about Ghosts being 720p on X1

What was the PNF alt at that time? I'm trying to remember?

MrXboxOne I think

Ahh yes, was XboxStache another PNF?

Not sure,they don't act the same.

Badass trailer. This game is gonna be big!

Also people don't give the animations in the game enough credit, seeing a lot of slow mo shots there were impressive

@shawn30: Thank you

And so good.... So good...

@musicalmac: You know something I really like, and granted, this is a very very small thing. Respawn didn't start any of the 3 commercials with "From the makers of Call of Duty MW and 2" or anything like that. They simply show the name of the company and the game, choosing not to piggyback on former success to sell their new product. They're letting the game sell itself.

Very cool observation. That's a great point. I'm guessing they were ready to leave behind the old, and embrace the new. Titanfall feels new, it's going to be amazing.

That's one theory. You could be right, but I think it's likely that infinity ward/Activison might have had something to do with that not happening.

I dusted off the ole 360 and hooked it back up in case this game turns out well. Still got a 14 day Gold code from Halo 4 and that should do for a Titanfall rental to see if it's worth playing/owning/re-subscribing.

Playing it on 360 might not be a good representation of the game. Gameplay might be different from pc and x1.

#309 Posted by PAL360 (26652 posts) -

8.0. It's not my kind of game, but i'm sure that fast paced shooter fans will love it.

Probably a clause in their contract after leaving. If you have an ace why not use it?

Damn, looks like GMG's only going to go as far as $10 off of Titanfall.

#312 Edited by Fuhrer_D (25 posts) -

Nine, though it could score a ten. My score is based on the fact that no game has really been fun since playing the beta. Got tired of Tomb Raider: DE 50% through, haven't picked up NBA 2K14 since playing, played a bit of Halo:SA and KI since (both the most fun in twenty minute play sessions), The Last of Us got completely put down (30% through), and sometimes I think of playing Nino Kuni but never put it in the system.

Just got an email from GameFly (from whom I purchased Titanfall for 48USD, @lostrib), and it let me know the pre-loading can begin at 9PM PST on 3/10 next week. Pretty exciting!

Bumeroo. Oh well, on the bright side -- it's still awesome and it's worth the 60 anyways, probably. Hehe.

TEN hours into the beta? I'd say you'll get your money's worth with almost complete certainty, hehe.

I think it was close to 14 (only two maps got boring, plus the level cap). On reddit, I saw some people saying that had 24+ hours in the beta, which is ridiculous. Now that I think it over, I barely got 27 hours out of COD Ghosts and I paid 48 for that hunk of crap, and I had more fun in the Titanfall beta than I did in all of Ghosts.

Funny thing is, after the awful launches of Ghosts and BF4, I swore of pre-ordering games. And now Titanfall has me wanting to preorder. Damn you Respawn!

I'm up for playing with anyone via Origin... Would love to get a group of 6 together to wreck unsuspecting randoms...

#320 Posted by psone4xbox (45 posts) -

I'll guess it will get a 9. I watched the beta and it looks good to me. I don't mind it being multiplayer only, reminds me of quake 3 arena in that regard.

I gave up on PC gaming so I'll try the xb1 version. I'm more comfortable on the sofa and big tv these days..

I'd laugh so hard if it got a 7 or less

At least the reviews will be simultaneously released, and that's the real fun anyways, right? Finding out if Titanfall met the hype (which is solidly AAA)?

No, I don't know when they'll start to drop. (See what I did there?)

It'd be awesome as an email/text notification on your mobile.

I'm so damn excited for this game that I've purchased two smaller games just to eat up my time till Tuesday at 12am. I'm playing through TLOU Left behind and I'm downloading Walking Dead Season 2 ep 2 this weekend. Tuesday at 12am can't get here fast enough. I'm off work for that day two. I'm gonna be pounding back caffeine (to stay awak) and pizza like I'm 16 or something!

Yeah, I want to play the game as soon as possible. But I still have some games I want to finish before I get hooked on Titanfall.

#334 Edited by genius2365 (370 posts) -

I tried the beta on PC and while it does introduce some interesting new mechanics (parkour, jetpacks, etc.), it's not really enough to give it AAA status. I got bored after 2 days and while I know there will be more variety in the final release, it'll still feel like COD 2.0 to me (minus single player and co-op). Also, while I know the beta is unfinished, the textures and graphics looked ugly and took away from the experience, and I am rarely the one to complain about graphics.

I think it's worth an 8/10

#336 Posted by tormentos (16795 posts) -

Depending who rates it,if the same dude who review Forza does this one,probably a 10,if MC Shea does it a 7 based on something totally stupid that doesn't even matter to gameplay.

#337 Edited by shawn30 (4364 posts) -

The review will be very interesting to me because I put 10+ hours into the beta and really got a feel for what Titanfall was about. If they launch with the 15 maps as expected, plus duel multiplayer campaigns modes and 5 multiplayer modes, the game-play and content size I think will warrant a 9 and possibly a 10. This game will have legs, and the words "Xbox Record That" will be used so often the first 48 hours I expect Upload servers may go down. Fun times ahead.

@tormentos: The dude who reviewed Forza 5 was Shaun and I'm pretty sure that Tom is busy reviewing things that are not Titanfall. We tend to let staff who fancy themselves aficionado's of the genre review the game in question.

#341 Edited by DigitalDame (3790 posts) -

@jsmoke03: I'm assuming when you say that you're asking about The Last of Us? To be honest, I'm not sure, you could try asking him.

EDIT

So I asked Tom why he reviewed TLOU in the first place and this is what he told me:

I'm a huge fan of ND and thought it looked interesting. I review every ND game.

Probably because he doesn't like those types of games.

I would imagine the chaos it would form if MC Shea flopped Titanfall...hahahaha

Or maybe he is grounded after rating Beyond 2 Souls 9 and The Last of US 8..hahaha

HEADS UP TO ALL ORIGIN PRE-ORDERS

Check your inbox, it's likely that your key is available and that you can begin pre-loading. It's wise to do so, especially if you don't have particularly fast Internet speeds -- because it really is clocking in at 50 gigs.

GO GO GO!

I feel your pain, brotha. My kids will be on spring break with they grandparents, so I'll be kickin it ole school and living without a care in the world for a whole day. That is until my wife gets in from work and wonders why I'm still in my pajamas and I and there's aluminum beverage cans everywhere. It reminds me of an old Playstation 2 contest video I made in 2002. I ended up getting 3rd place and winning a cool white PS2, but the acting sucked big time.
