    Titanfall

    Figured that this deserves a thread, as it's won over 80 awards at E3, GamesCom, etc. etc. and it's one of the games I've been waiting for since being announced. Dropped $60 on it with fingers crossed, and it's not bad...today's announcement is that the street date is March 11th, 2014. No comment on the TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLAR special edition.

    FPS shooter with pilots and mechs "titans" from one of the co-creators of CoD.

    Launch date announcement.

    Super Stoked for this game! My brother pre-ordered this for me a few weeks ago. Glad to see a release date finally out there. Guess the special edition comes with a statue of a Titan if you are interested in that.

    I am playing most of games on PS4 and my brother on Xbox One but this is one of the games I am glad we are gonna have both systems for!

    This is one of the games that indefinitely sold me on getting my Xbox One. I will be picking this up for sure. it was by far the most interesting and compelling game for me at this year's E3.

    The Collector's Edition isn't worth it, as it's just a statue, poster, and book. Big deal, shit you'll look at once and never again. Some people are whining about why there's no DLC with it, but seriously...who gives a shit. Preorder DLC is so overblown...how many of these people are riding around in the fuckin' blimp from GTA V? Nobody? Shocker.

    I will admit however, the statue is bonkers at 18" high. For $250, it better be, but still...

    Looks cool, I will get it on PC. Probably will have to upgrade my video card next year (currently have a 2GB 6950).

    Who designed the statue? I can't find info on this, but if it's the same dudes that did some other CE statues out there, I'd genuinely be interested in this.

    It will also be on PC of course, and one of the devs has already said that 'The next TitanFall will almost certainly be open for every console out there.'

    I'm considering this one. How do you think it's different than halo or destiny?

    I think it's more the nature of the exclusive and how it was purchased from Electronic Arts, a title that otherwise almost certainly would have released on the PS4 as well had Microsoft not paid for it. That's a different thing than Halo or Uncharted.

    It doesn't bother me one way or the other. It's business, this is how it goes, but I don't care about Call of Duty, so I'm not really interested in the creator's new IP. If anything, this is the kind of title that Microsoft should be securing exclusive rights to. They can have all the first person shooters, take all the Call of Duties, just please, this time around, don't run around buying the rights to obscure niche Japanese RPGs. That bothered me.

    If this was my kind of game, I'd definitely be planning on buying an Xbox One.

    It's probably closer to Call of Duty than Halo or Destiny. Call of Duty with mechs as your care packages.

    Respawn has confirmed that there will be no microtransactions which is fine with me. Season Pass still up in the air, but probably since they haven't even announced any DLC (it's not even out yet so no bother).

    The leaked closed alpha videos look downright insane for this game, and the fact that Respawn has been on record saying that it was just to iron out some kinks, and that the textures and graphics in-game were running at about 25% of the final product is bonkers.

    Leaked alpha gameplay. Same guy has a handful of videos.

    A friend of mine got an alpha download code for Xbox One. He downloaded it and played it a few and told me it's an automatic day one purchase. I was going to anyways, since it was one of the major reasons I got an Xbox One, but him telling me solidified it further.

    It's a good thing this is coming out for PC too because I don't want to buy an XBone.

    16 multiplayer maps at launch. Also, despite Respawn's denial, apparently the Alpha textures are final. The usual internet nerds are whining like the silly little bitches they are, but the Alpha footage is still hot to me, so who gives a shit. The textures in BioShock weren't the best in the world and that game is still a crowning achievement.

    I always thought of Bioshock as the point when games crossed the boarder into the last generation...
    16 maps is great! I wonder what kinds of playlists theyll have...

    Server problems. Was down last night for apparently 7 or so hours

    Just keep trying, or hit the blue X button to pick the next nearest server hub and try that one.

    Already maxed out the beta level cap (only 14) and it's ridiculous how balanced this game is. You can rodeo any opposing titan, and get rodeod. If you do, just eject out and clip the pilot on your back, then jump back in...or vice versa. They've made a gem of a game, ugh it's so hot.

    I like how when you're a pilot, you can see other cloaked pilots, but if you're in your Titan, you can't see the blur at all. They've done a great job of thinking of all the scenarios of combat.
