Now that I have a PC that can play Titanfall, is the game still worth getting now? I know some of the buzz behind it has died down, but if I see it on sale for a decent price, should I pick it up at some point?

Yes. It's a blast to play. I haven't played it in a while because all the other games I have XD. I use to only buy 3-4 major titles a year and that was it. But the industry has really picked it up in making new games I'm actually interested in. I still need to play more Battlefield and PAYDAY, but with the Destiny Beta around the corner and then the game 2 months later, it's going to be hard. Then Hardline comes out in October. XD

Cool. I'll probably end up buying this if I see it on sale with the season pass for a good deal on Origin. I'm in no rush to get it at the moment tho with the huge backlog of games I currently have, but I'll keep my eyes out for a sale.

I hope it does. I'd rather play a game like this on a console than have to deal with aim bot cheaters. I know they banned quite a few for titanfall on pc, but I still prefer consoles for most fps games.

I see Titanfall is on sale on Origin's store for $29.99 and the deluxe edition is $49.99. Is this a good price at this point or should I hold off for a better sale later in the year? I'm not in any real rush.

*triple posts*

 

Does anyone know if the maps from the DLC are always available in their own playlist? I'm just wondering if the map selection in Titanfall is the same as in Black Ops 2, where you have no actual choice in what map you play when you start a multiplayer match? I always loved the Battlefield server browser.

They are part of the map cycle. When new maps come out they stay in their own playlist for a short time and then meld into the rotation. Battlefield is the only FPS I know of that lets you choose a map anymore. Maybe the newest counterstrike. But dedicated servers have become a thing of the past for most FPS games.

So far Titanfall definitely feels like COD, except superior. The giant mechs are great, the game looks and plays great, but I don't feel any sense of teamwork. I'll finish up the story line missions tomorrow to get a better impression of it.

I'm glad it's free on origin this weekend. I might play the helm out of it tomorrow and be content on not buying it. But I'm also one of those ppl that like a campaign over endless 6 vs 6 matches. :P I hope titanfall 2 has an amazing campaign. :P

I've never played brink but I agree with that. The wall running and double jumping gave me the feeling that I was playing a fps with prince of Persia elements.

I played some Titanfall today.. and it was quite fun. Even though I was able to play the game on max settings, I really needed to drop the video settings down to stop lag issues while playing. And streaming this game was a b*tch for my PC.. it added quite a bit of lag to my game even though it doesn't look like it in this video:

After a while, I stopped streaming so I could enjoy the game.. then I noticed that Origin has its own built in twitch streaming, which works quite crappy. It turned everything blue until I unchecked the "Optimized streaming" setting or whatever that little check box was. I think my problem with my first stream was that I was streaming at 60 fps in my full monitor resolution, while Origin's streaming was capped out at 30 fps and 720p. Origin's streaming also crashed my game repeatedly.

 

Origin blue streaming, wtf:

And Origin streaming working and me in a horrible match:

In the end, I switched over to keyboard and mouse because I'm not used to my xbox 360 controller's sensitivity for FPS games. The game was enjoyable, but the "campaign" seemed like it was pointless, and stupid me went to take the dog outside friday night and left the game in the lobby instead of the main menu.. by the time I got back to the PC it was on the 3rd mission.. wtf.. why didn't the game boot me for being idle!? I must have been the worst team mate ever.. just standing there getting killed endlessly.. So I tried to restart the campaign and apparently I couldn't so I'll just watch it on a lets play because I couldn't get past the 3rd mission anyway because it kept repeating on me. So I switched over to multiplayer and with the correct video settings, it was a high paced game.. but I still prefer Battlefield. This felt like Call of Duty, except far superior. The mobility and parkour made a huge difference over the COD titles I've played before too.

 

But I won't be buying this game for a couple reasons. Battlefield has me spoiled. I'd rather play on a company's server with map selections and numerous game modes and vehicles. Does anyone know if Titanfall actually has servers? I know the grunts are supposed to be powered by MS's cloud servers, but I find that difficult to believe. It seemed to me that the games were hosted off whoever's PC had the best connection like Call of Duty. And just like I'd expect of a FPS game on PC, I saw numerous "Ping of Death" attacks against my router's firewall during the time I was playing Titanfall multiplayer. My router has been crapping out on me for the past week or so, but at least it's firewall is still working correctly. If they make Titanfall 2 on PS4 and it has an actual campaign that will let me hone my fighting skills in before I take the plunge into multiplayer, then I'll buy it.

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.
