I have a Ps4 and a PC so if I want Titanfall I can buy it and play it on my PC but unfortunately this is not a game I'm over hyped about. I'm not being a fan boy

Looks to fast paced with far too much dying.    Everything in the map looked too similar in the first match.  The mechs looked like they died really fast as well which seems lame.  Didn't look fun to me.

I typically don't watch stuff like this but I really enjoyed the video and watched the whole thing - nice job guys. Titanfall wasn't even really on my radar but the hype/praise has been so completely over the top lately that I decided to check it out myself to see what it's all about. 


I went ahead and pre-ordered a copy for pc which is saying a lot for me. I haven't seriously played a competitive FPS on the pc since the original Unreal Tournament back in 1999 lol. 


The term I keep hearing more than anything when this game is discussed is "FUN". That's what I need to hear and that's why I game. There is also something to be said for getting in on game during launch. I don't have anything against COD or Battlefield but to jump into those games at this point when I haven't played any previous iterations is daunting to say the least.


Looking forward to seeing you guys in game. Time to shake the rust off my FPS gaming reflexes and see if I still got it lol.

lol at sony fanboys all angry over xbox one getting a highly anticipated game. Gamespot give 1 xbox game a bit of positive coverage and your all up in arms, its pathetic. Beta came and went and damm near everyone who played it are in agreement.. this game is alot of fun. The only next gen thing that has been over hyped is the Dust collector 4. second sun... no multi player... the order... no multi player... knack.... game delays psn going down all the time and been really slow when up. thief running at about 10 fps or worse in places. But do you read about these negatives about ps4 in news stories? no. to suggest that gamespot is in ms pocket is laughable.


its actually funny that some of you have nothing better to do that comment on something that your never gonna buy lol because your trying to force the view that ps4 is better because you think so. im never gonna buy a htc phone but i wouldnt sit on there forums and every other site i could find slagging them off saying iphone is better esp without trying htc lol. its stupid and childish. I dont want ps4 stuff forced down my throat all the time but anytime xbox is brought up loads of people do. then same people are saying they dont want titanfall forced down there throats as if they are been forced to watch this. im so glad i picked xbox live, the community is so much better. PSN/sony seams to be gathering themselves a community of childish chavs who spit there dummy out every time something is said they dont like... grow up

Thank you for finally making it clear that all this coverage is being sponsored, Game$pot. Not that we didn't notice...

What you are doing with this game is ugly. This absurd and absolutelly biased coverage. It's one of the ugliest things I've seen.

You are shoving at our faces that you don't care for anything but the money. How do you expect someone to still trust Game$pot for anything like opinions, reviews and scores?

I know how business work, I'm not naive at all. I'm sure you've done things like this before (GTA Diaries, for instance).

But this is too much, this is disgusting. You fell across the fall line.

And congratulations, because for the comments I can see threre's a big bunch of retards that are eating the crap you're shoving down their throats. Good job.


By the way, this game is just like CoD with robots, with the same graphics. I'm sure you know it.

If it was something diferente there will be no need to force all this hype.

Good game, but why on earth can't the XB1 play it in 1080p? I played the beta on PC with everything cranked up to ultra and it still looked like a 360 game.

Wait ...so there are Batlefield pros ? WHat are they pros at ? Shooting someone in the face 7 time before the game starts registring the hits ( rubber banding.) ?


Do competitive pro battlefield match have rubber banding?  Is it turned off for them? Can I turn it off ? How about in madden or nhl? 


How can you be a pro at a game where players aren't even the ones influencing the outcome of the game ???


So when you mean pro, you mean PR PEOPLE right?

it really looks like a 360 game not a next gen game..its generating some excitement though. Could be the first decent xbone game???????? Surely it will come out for £30 max for an online only game though?

I thought the coverage was waaaaay over the top last week but it just seems to have spiked to a whole new level this week especially.

If Gamespot isn't getting some sort of back-hander for this unbelievable coverage, i'll be very surprised.

The game itself? - not that impressed with what I've seen so far - just far too twitchy, need 4 shots of coke to play type of game and that's going to get old real fast.

Visually, it looks a bit grey/bland for my tastes but it won't be long until release, so it'll be interesting to see how this one game will divide people.

I'm going to be particularly interested in the review scores - I see a massive shit-storm brewing on the horizon - mark my words, it aint gonna be pretty.

Every day when I visit gamespot the most prominent thing on the site is another ad or story about Titanfall and it's getting sickening at this point... M$ obviously paid GS a megaton pile of money to promote the crap out of this game...

I am so sick of hearing about this game.  Its overexposure at this point.  Please stop.  There are other games coming.  Its like we are being forced to consume this one single game.  Even for the Xbox there are other games.   Its like being forced to watch the same commercial over and over.  If the game is good than cool, but I'm not one who like things shoved down their throat.  Of the seven front page news articles 4 are about Titanfall.  Please save something for the game!

@PowerDingALing  Dafuq are you talking about? such a hater you don't even make no sense. PS4 bot pissed coz your console has no games lol. grow up

@KitchMurder  A-farken-men, finally worded to perfection, and even with it written so clearly we still continue to buy these crappy multiplayer games and grind for xp in hope that it gets better, we (I) need to get our heads checked. We are junkies with no hope, unless we just play offline or get lives but i cant see that happening. Kindest regards.

@ecurl143 I thought the same, till I tried it. Now I want it bad! Very Fun!

@jdt532 To be honest their really isn't much new coming out for next gen consoles. This is the first triple AAA title to launch. I know its going to 360 and PC too but, but its target platform is the xbox one. And to be honest for about a month all I saw were sony ads and a lot of Microsoft bashing. Which is fine. But its all about the games not 900P

@jdt532  You definitely don't see this kind of stuff from Sony though, you're right!

Simply because they can't afford it, lol.

They would have to sell off another corporate HQ to even try it.  But first they would have to pay some bills. . .

bewitness

@jdt532  Yea cause it's not like they would talk about it cause its enjoyable. Did you play the beta?, the game is awesome. This game wasn't winning all those awards at E3 for nothing, its fun and feels like something new, which is something hard to do when your working with shooters.

@Karmazyn  I played the beta for PC, and it was off the fuckin chain.   Great game and it sounds like there is going to be a sizeable community to play with.

@translucent17  


Mostly with how the game is able to make people feel powerful when they get a Titan, but with the way they designed the soldiers to be so maneuverable, it doesn't feel like an unfair advantage to be on foot.


You're never mismatched, but your constantly being forced to reassess you strategy and act accordingly.


It's hard to describe, but I emphasize that is what makes it so unique.

@Eonjay  I bet you own a ps4 and have nothing to be excited at this point and are just jealous of the so called shitty XBONE and it's super enjoyable 720p TitanFall that you won't get to play.

@Eonjay  It's so blatantly clear that GS is part of the hype machine bought and paid for by Microsoft. NO OTHER gaming website is doing this, and as much as Greg Miller at IGN annoys me like nothing else, TitanSpot's coverage of this single game is literally topping that by leaps and bounds. Sickening. Totally biased coverage and it's clear the gamer isn't the focus, it's the money. Microsoft needs this game to be a win whether it's good or not. Not a single piece of unbiased coverage, but GS bashes Donkey Kong with a "fair" review because it "doesn't break new ground in the platforming genre"? Really? So running up walls is "breaking new ground"? That's what makes Titanfail unique? Come on guys, wow. It's truly appalling. There is NOTHING unique here, NOTHING.

@nolgeo @ecurl143I have to agree, the more I heard on certain aspect i.e 6v6 I was turned off. However, Since I played it It's one of my most anticipated game this year(Evil withing, Alien Isolation, as i'm a survival horror fan). I'm looking forward to it. COD Back Ops II and MW3 I really enjoyed for multiplayer. I know enjoy this game over all MP games out there right now. The game allows for a wide variation of tactical approaches/ play-style which is nice. Very impressed with the map design, looking forward to seeing the other maps

because they don't have to unlike Microsoft who they only way they get exclusives is by paying for them to be locked to there console or buy the dlc for games to be released for there system first as far as i know sony dont do that

@bewitness  I agree, I'm a PS4 owner but why be that skeptical..? Maybe the reason it's making a lot of noise it because its' looking good?

@jimmy_russell im sure Microsoft is shelling out some serious cash to get this game hyped, especially with the constant dark fog that's been engulfing the xone.

@PowerDingALing @lucienbry  Have you actually played it, seems like you are spouting a load of bile without having done? I have played the beta, and i went into it with very little hope it would be good, I tend to reserve judgement till I have played the game myself. I have been disappointed with almost every major release in the last year. Dont play cod as i hate it and even more reason for me to be cautious it would be any good  but things like rome 2, failure, theif, failure, Battlefield 4, failure, Batman: Arkham Origins, talk about underwhelming. Etc. I tend not to buy into the hype for games, but titanfall was actually a breath of fresh air. It doesn’t feel like cod at all. Not in the slightest, its fast, but fluid, the mech are weak but it would be stupid if they were stupidly OP, and if you had played it you would know that, and if you did and still felt it was like cod, they you don’t really know much about your fps’s. If you are good in a mech you can survive a LONG time and do very very well, but if you have someone who is equally good on foot they can take a titan down easily if they know how to play. They have actually balanced it very well. This isn’t to say its perfect the grunt AI is terrible, and yes the graphics aint great, but they were adamant it should run at a solid 60fps on the xbox one, something that is essential in my eyes as a pc gamer. I don’t drop below 100 fps while playing it maxed (and yes it does matter because I have a 144hz screen) but you know what, the graphics don’t matter so much. If it was a game like skyrim or say a very story driven game that wants to suck you into the world I would be inclined to be a little more bothered. But as it stands it isn’t. It’s a fast paced fps, and like cs I couldn’t give a rats ass about graphics. Grow up you little troll

I agree i played the beta with the notion it was cod with robots but it doesnt feel that way , i liked the guns and building jumping and the mad evac scramble at the end .i cant wait till march

@scubamonkey123 Yeah. I'm bitter and the world is a fair and honest place. No company use money to get what they want, ever. And sites like Gamespot are incorruptible.

scubamonkey123
scubamonkey123

Grow up? Seriously after that reply? Wow. It looks like a great game. If you don't want to read about it then you can exercise your free choice not to read it. Simple. No one is forcing you to read about it, play it or buy it. Trolling everyone on here that isn't as bitter about it won't change anything.

@scubamonkey123 @bewitness Can't believe you're so naive. Well, now you KNOW Gamespot coverage of this game is sponsored, since it's written right there. How do you feel figuring that out? Also, awards can be bought too, and certainly are. Not only in E3 or in videogames industry, but in all kinds of business (car of the year, for instance). Grow up and learn to see.
