Analog - Top Titanfall Alternatives
Standby for Analog! Can't get enough of mechs, parkour, and assorted Titanfall excellence? Lisa Foiles serves up some alternatives to sate your appetite.
I would have chosen MechWarrior Online over Hawken. Hawken seems arcadey to me where as MechWarrior Online takes some effort to get the correct loadout for the size mech you are playing. What works in the tabletop version does not necessarily translate tot he PC version.
Great show, i have been searching for games similar to heavy rain, i wonder what games would be similar to that.............. if i knew which games were close to HR i would play all of them.
Point of clarification on HAWKEN: You do not use real money to buy upgrades.
You use real money to UNLOCK them early! But ALL players have access to ALL gear. All items, internals, and MECHS can be bought with INGAME EARNED CREDIT. (no money required)
The ONLY thing you HAVE to spend real-money on (if you want it) is Vanity Items: paint, camo, sights, and little extra stuff. But as far as gear you are not forced to fight peoples wallets.
In fact the Starter Mech (TV, Fred, whatever you want to call it) is completely valid through all levels. And like every mech, it's not better or worse, it's about playing the roll it was made for and using it well.
I say this because I HATE most "free to play" games, because they are most often "pay to win". HAWKEN is unusual and not like that at all, and a blast.
Shogo: Mobile Armor Division. Fantastic mecha game that had missions on foot that were extremely different from the mecha ones. No real parkour, but huge explosions everywhere, an interesting campaign with branching paths and one of the best soundtracks in game history.
Im honestly surprised at the amount of people here who do know know who lisa foiles is.
She has a top 5 list every week over at escapist, very funny stuff.
Lisa was a cast member of the nickelodeon skit comedy show "All That"
Omg...Gamespot....you hired a girl that is not only good looking, but doesn't come across as a complete ditz(Jess)...thank you.
Lisa Foiles wants to fill my hole?
I guess the show's title should be Anal log instead. amirite guyse
On a serious note, the show was entertaining and informative, I'll give Hawken a try!
Oh Lisa Foiles, really haven't seen her since TGS (Before it changed to Polaris). i knew she was on The Escapist, but didn't watch it.
Good show, happy to see new faces around GS, just dial back on the amount of make up please, it's a bit disconcerting.
Hey, she's good! She at least sounds like she knows what shes talking about, as opposed to some gaming websites.
@ginyuman I like jess better, she seems more like a gamer nerd, and less like a pretty face. (Sorry new girl, no offence.)
@ginobili1 Yes that's kinda what she said
@punkpunker Oh snap!!! Didn't realize that! LOL. Guess I'm as old as you. Time sure does fly!
@kingcrimson24 me too man, Lisa is great, and recommended some really good games, but johnny was hilarious
@Dirk_McHardpeck I would love to see more people of color on video at GameSpot as well.
@Dirk_McHardpeck A gamer not getting much sun? What a crazy new concept.
You're clearly a detective of Batman caliber.
@klugenbeel your crazy, Jess is as sharp and witty as they come
@klugenbeel Jess has never came off as "ditzy" to me. But I've only ever watched the News thingy, not the other stuff she's put up.
@klugenbeel Where's the dislike button? Not only your being a total d*bag misogynist (judging Lisa only by her looks and 'non-ditzyness'), you're also blatantly ignoring how good of a game journalist Jess is.
@klugenbeel What? I love Jess!
@musalala We can only hope.
@riotinto876 Irrelevant comment about makeup is irrelevant.
@Kevin-V @Dirk_McHardpeck Let's be real...you guys need the "Bro" of game reviewers. Also need a token black dude reviewer and while we are at it, let's see you guys follow the SNL trend and get some sistas' up in there for reviewing! I think a sista' would be great for game reviewing...think of the fantasic one liners she could/would bring. :D
I was told I need to get out more
now I sit in the garden playing ps4 via remote play....
serisoly it's friking sweet
