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.

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 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.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.

      Sigh, I actually had to break down and get a FunimationNow account because half the shows I was planning on watching on CR got pulled yesterday (and I didn't actually realize Funi had the license). Going to go broke if this shit keeps happening >.<

      I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing.

      Red Dead Redemption 2 is a testament to what single player games can be when you spend years developing them rather than 1-2 years and throw them out there with endless sequels. It would take me a few hours to hammer out my initial thoughts on this game. The level of detail is truly spectacular. My one concern was having to juggle all the health/stamina and weapon maintenance, but somehow Rockstar made it very uncumbersome to where its there, but you don't really have to worry about it every few minutes... I've gone hours without having to rest or use consumables. I've found myself getting lost in just tracking/hunting for hours. The amount of random side content is astonishing. After I get off work tomorrow, I'll have a whole week to dive into it and get lost. I'm really looking forward to it.
