Everything has an end. That's a ridiculous statement.

And as for the rude question/comment below, were these folks raised by wolves or something? 

What possible motivation was there other than to try to embarrass Jess.  The bottom line is that you don't ask that in a public forum and, oh yeah, it's none of our business.

Go look up "adult" and try to become one.

I preloaded Destiny last night.  Not being a speed-runner I'm anticipating spending quite a bit of my time on the game. 

As for Titanfall, I can imagine that there were quite a few folks whining about the game not being "Titan-COD" and that the developer put out the mode to appease them.

Destiny is getting all my attention. The holidays are right around the corner, if i give my attention to other games i won't have any money left.

"scraps titans" You make it sound like they completely got rid of the titans. It's just one game mode... you don't have to play it if you don't want to..

Lokout map was stolen by Counter Strike

Taking the Titans and AI from the game will run the risk of it feeling like 'any old shooter'. Hopefully it's a limited time run, liked Marked for Death originally was, and it won't get permanently added

I am counting down the days for Destiny.  So very ready as I played both the Alpha and the Beta. Midnight pick up at Game Stop for me.

Btw, I really don't like Titanfall since it too much sci-fi fantasy for me. Same reason why I am not all that hyped for CoD: AW. Both feel like a generic arcade shooter game where I don't feel connected in any way. 

And I actually don't know how CoD AW is going to be any different. I just hope Gamespot review's the stuff before release so I can vote.

For so many new games coming out this holiday - I gotta say very little interests me. So far I'm only sold on Alien Isolation, Halo, and a few X1 indis. The one WiiU game that caught my eye isn't even coming out this year (that Toad game - whatever it's called).

Am I missing something?

Halo: Master Chief Collection has my attention this November.

Hi Jess! Hi, Grand Council of Gamespot! =D

Titanfall is promising, but unfortunately TITANFAILS. The maps are just too huge for a very limited number of gamers, so it is still not a grand scheme to control the shooting genre universe, which is quite unfortunate.

Destiny looks good and appealing. Still hoping for the best for it. =D

Halo: Master Chief Edition is quite promising, but I'm still looking forward for the PC version. =D

Destiny looks.... good. But still looking forward for the official release, which should not disappoint.

Nice gaming news Grand Councilor Jessica McDonell! Looks like we just forgot Star Wars here, so I just made my comment kinda-Star-Wars-thingy, at the very least.

Grand Councilor PeejayYeh, signing out ;-P

@tempertress Jess, for your question of the day, how do you get your hair to look so fantastic?


Titanfall Scraps Titans, I totally thought that was gonna be a joke or some weird story about a Titanfall musical without titans :), was not expecting the pilots only mode.

not really interested in Titanfall without Titans. The noob pistol kind of ruins it.

Not really the best place to say this but, where the hell is GS weekly videos? Not even two months ago, we had a video everyday! Jess and Danny are the only ones doing good videos here! Where did Lisa Foiles go? Shaun? Seb? Chris? Come on Gamespot! This is becoming one boring website...

Maybe you should learn to not be rude to people willing to show public affection. After all we live in a free country where where freedom of speech still exsists.

@rohitv2312 I am so tired of hearing this stupid a s s comment. Please enlighten me, what FPS isn't considered a 'generic arcade shooter'? If you feel that way then you don't feel connected to ANY first person shooter because they are all the damn same. Just like people complain about certain games being repetitive....NEWS FLASH....they are ALL repetitive. You sound like a parrot. Grow dafuq up

I'm the number 1 anti sci-fi person in the world, from Star Wars to Star Trek - I hate all things outer space. But as a game - Titanfall is incredible. You're doing yourself an injustice if you enjoy shooters. Give the 48 hr demo a try on PC - or watch a few YouTube videos. Trust me, Titanfall is the real deal.

@PeejayYeh  Dude...you're an internet commenter...she's a games journalist who probably lives an active life. Why do people feel the need to suck up to an internet personality?

Why must people be so creepy to female gamespot teleprompter readers?

Titanfall maps are not too big. It may seem that way because of their grand scope due to, I dunno, Titans sharing the battlefield - but the game works fine that way. Have you played it?

Sevenizz
Sevenizz

Yes. Have you played it? Those 'stupid bots' actually serve a purpose.

You really shouldn't get killed by it unless the guy gets a drop on you, in which case you are dead anyway. Not to say I don't get killed by it, but I always feel it is my fault.

If you keep moving and go in and out of quarters - the smart pistol isn't that bad.

@edussz Well Cam has his weekly Reality Check, Cam and Seb still do Skyrim Mods every week. The Point has moved to non-weekly. And you have my Gist shiz. Also we have The Lobby and Now Playing on each week.

@edussz you do know that a lot of people were let go and a lot of content is now gone, right?  brush up on the new 'slim' gs.

@Sevenizz Just returned it yesterday for $25 store credit. It got old very fast. Maps take forever to be released and it also started giving me headaches. That one grenade that blurs the screen was killing me. I kept feeling sick. Every time you looked around someone was throwing one of those grenades and it would make me nauseous. People are already grenade happy in those games and have your screen constantly disoriented, it just wasn't fun. Titans were destroyed pretty quickly especially in 2 on 1 scenarios which was usually the case. Pilots only focused on killing other pilots while bots were cannon fodder. Did I elaborate enough for you?

@beeftrapeze meh the thing has extreme range and a lot of the DLC maps have lots of good camping spots.  At some point you have to run across a street or down a hallway.

I just think its lame that you can be juking and wall running and they can just point it in the general direction for a sec and it autolocks.

Personally I dont really see the point of playing this game without Titans.  They should have made more Titan only maps.

Bring back Feedbackula - none of those shows are good.

@tempertress @edussz The ones I like the most are Gist, and The Point, GS News and the House of Horros (though I never get to see it live). But there were so much content on GS! Skyrim Mods are really focus on Skyrim players. The Lobby is an hour long show (ain't nobody got time for that!). And Aim Down Sights is kind of boring...
And as I said... You guys have a wonderful personel... Yourself, Chris, Seb, Mary, Kevin and much more! One show (or just a play through!) per day isn't much! Please? : )

@tempertress @edussz And you still do the House of Horrors too right? Love that one. The Point looks like it takes awhile to produce, just happy that's around.
