Those salty comments. XD

The message updates whilst reading briefly were a sight to behold.

Check out this sweet box fort I made. Dare I say, 'World's Greatest' :)

here is an 80

http://www.gamesradar.com/titanfall-review/


This is exactly why I am waiting for the initial hoopla to die down and new-coat polish to wear thin:

"But it's not all sunshine and robot battles. Whereas the gameplay is an artful evolution of the standard FPS formula, the innovation stops when it gets to the game modes, which are downright stale in comparison. There's Capture the Flag, Capture Point (called Hardpoint Domination), two kinds of Team Deathmatch (Attrition and Pilot Hunter), and Last Titan Standing, which is a round-based mode where everyone starts with a titan and you don't respawn after death. They're all augmented and improved with parkour, minions, and titans, but with exception of Last Titan Standing, these are all game types you've played before (and, honestly, even LTS isn't fundamentally different). Though you're doing cool stuff all the time, you're doing it in the same context as you are in just about every other shooter out there, and it's a bit disappointing."

^ Yeah, I'm still waiting for the fighting games to introduce us a mode where we're doing what we've not been doing all these years too...

A normal match of Titanfall is going to include at least two "Did you see that?!" moments. Like, two separate times where you literally say, "Did you see that?" Out loud. It might be when you dash through a ruined building, jump kicking half a dozen AI-controlled grunts to death. It might be when you pounce from rooftop to rooftop and barely make the leap to the evac ship as enemies try desperately to take you down. Or it might be when you eject from your doomed titan in the heat of a battle and watch from the sky as its nuclear core explodes, taking out every foe within a block. But no matter your skill level, and no matter how badly you're winning or losing, you're still going to feel the urge to scream, "Did you see that!?" because Titanfall--despite a few shortcomings--is a game that demands to be seen.


You'll be amazed by how much is going on at any given time on the screen. The online-only FPS takes mechanics from popular modern shooters and mixes in new ideas to make for something that looks absolutely astounding. You're not battling in the streets of empty cities, you're fighting alongside AI soldiers, piloting massive mechs, and shooting at enemy players that can tumble through windows and run up walls. You kill fast, die fast, and move faster than you do in most other shooters, making for short, brutal matches that you'll want to keep playing again and again. When you get into the groove of things, playing matches of Titanfall feels like munching on potato chips; good luck having just one

Look, I can cut part of an article too.
Here is some of the positive gamesradar review points.

Fellas, fellas. I'm not bashing the game. All I'm saying is that I will most likely pick it up, just not until the initial reactions wear thin. Considering that it's MP only, I'm more concerned about longevity and game modes than I am immediate satisfaction.

Being as it is a new IP, can't argue with longevity concerns. But I also know what I like, and this game has given me that spark of fun that I have not had since the first Bioshock. I must have logged 500 hours on that game and, I think I just figured out what to play till midnight. Thanks man!!

I'm glad you're enjoying it. Perhaps I'll be Robot-Joxing you in the near future!
