Re: Titanfall (gamers)

What do you think of the game now?

Haven't got it yet.. I always find myself reserved to buy new games.


Side note: Have you heard of Planetside 2?

You have time for games?

Those shoot them up games appear to be the same to me... Just different landscapes...

Re: Titanfall (gamers)

I have all the time in the world.
I don't have a family immediate family outside my Mum and Grandad. Not how everyone wants to live but I have never really wanted kids and am pretty selfish with my time off in regards to not wanting to have to do anything except what I want so it works well for me.
Though reading back through that it makes me seem a bit of ass. Honestly im not lol.


So yeah plenty of time for games, wargaming and sports.

Yes, it's a definite. Haven't heard of Planet Side.

It's not your normal shooter, the Titans change the dynamic tremendously.

Normal Shooter issues like noob tubes, snipers from 1000m away, camping in corners are all neutralized by the Titans and wall running .

For those that ask about having time for gaming.... I can't afford not to, it's my break from reality and a much needs escape.

Keep something in mind when your deciding, this game is ONLY multiplayer. There is no offline game, the campaign mode is a collaborative effort.

Think mech warrior meets Battlefield or Call of Duty.

Re: Titanfall (gamers)

Strange that they left off a single player campaign but they just said they didnt have the man power so cant blane them. Id rather they done that than some of the mediocre single player modes that others pyt out. Im not a massive online player but this sounds interesting.

Honestly I've been through literally hundreds of FPS launches...

Titanfall' launch was an anomaly, zero lag, zero lobby issues. If I didn't know better is swear it was a single player shooter.

If you played Chromehounds which I put in over 500 hours through the years, it is a lot like that model. You have a 15 minute tutorial offline at the start of the game but everything else is online multiplayer.


If your a single player sort of person. Wolfenstein comes out in May for XBO. That's a no brainer for me. Hi-res!

Ill have to give it a try...

I squeeze gaming in occasionally. I keep my gaming to the PC so multiplayer is not an issue.

If you play FPS games on PC I suggest Planetside 2. It's not as good as the original (which is over 10 years old) but the scale of the game is better than any other FPS. 3 sides 600vs600vs600 fighting over bases on three different but connected continents. Give it a look when you have the time.

EDIT: Planetside 2 releases for PS4 soon as well.
