Titanfall, Infinity W.. eh Respawn's big debut


DeathscytheX

The original Infinity Ward studio that brought us COD4: Modern Warfare and MW2 has finally come out of hiding as Respawn Entertainment with a game that is highly futuristic, but is very CODish in appearance from the XP scoring and map. We can only wait for more lawsuit slinging between Activision and EA overthis.... anyways the game looks great. Sadly its an XBO exclusive.

I wouldn't doubt it would be on PS4 eventually... I was thinking that since it was announced. Its EA... They want money, and they will put it on all platforms.

I'm still surprised that they are not getting sued over this game considering how similar the basic look is compared to current Call of Duty games.

 

I agree with out.. EA wants money so yeah, I'm sure this will be on PS4. Especially once they compare the sale numbers of BF4 for PS4 compared to Xbox One. They'll be missing out an a huge chuck of potential money if they don't.

Ohh.. good point. Activision is probably going to regret that deal in the long term. If Titanfall is released for all consoles and gets new sequels every other year, it could easily take on Call of Duty.. As for Battlefield, I don't think Call of Duty even compares to it considering how different the two games are.

Yeah Titanfall is a COD style run and gun game... thats what they specialize in, they invented that model of FPS after all. Activision should regret ever letting them go already. MW3 was such hot garbage. If you ever see a free trial on Steam, please download it to experience how terrible the game is. The maps were flat out bad, and the guns were awful.

BO2 was great at the begining, then they started watering down all the guns n00bs or "elitists" were bitching about. Once they fucked over the FAL after I worked to get all the unlocks for it, the game lost its luster. Plus no one makes maps like the original IW did. Titanfall should have some sick maps. COD4 and MW2 maps were second to none. I could name them all off for you because they were so good... I couldn't even tell you a map name by heart on BO2 right now. LOL

That map sounds like fun, but its nothing compared to the what Titanfall will be accomplishing. Considering how many comparisons are going around about CoD and Titanfall, it looks like Titanfall is on a pedestal above CoD and CoD keeps trying to get out of its shadow. Which is pretty funny considering how big the CoD franchise is. CoDs lack of innovation is really starting to become apparent.

 

Also, this new map is a pre-order bonus, much like how Nuketown was for Black Ops 2... which means unless there is a map rotation specifically for this map, you'll almost never see it. Every time I play BO2, I have never seen nuketown in a multiplayer round unless I'm in a "special weekend only available map rotation". Its a pointless pre-order bonus just like nuketown was.

Nuketown was overrated, and only worked for BO1 because of the napalm killstreak that could cut off the opposing team in their own spawn back yard. On Demolition, this was the only way to win if you tied and ended up being offense in the tie breaker round (unlike COD games there after where both teams were offense and you fought over a single bomb). One of the bomb sites was in the garage of a house near the defensive teams spawn, and unless you cut them off with saved napalm streaks you'd never be able to plant and defend.

 

People were screwed over on that preorder bonus, It was only available for the first week and then Nuketown 2025 was taken off rotation for regular gameplay and then made available to everyone on specialized gameplay. So basically you got a 1 week timed exclusive and never got to play it on normal TDM and Demo playlists.

 

I don't understand how Nuketown became such a big hit while COD4's Shipment was much smaller and much more intense, you could rack up 80+ kills on the domination only match. XD, if you managed to get an air strike and chopper it was pure mayhem. You equip the 3 frag perk and just lob them in 3 different directions and start run-n-gunning like crazy.

 

 

This is the type of guy that Generic Geoff parodies although he isn't as bad he just talks about his subscription numbers... give him a like or a thumbs up. XD

My main thing for Titanfall is that the weapons kill like COD4 and MW2. When everyone started bitching about stopping power, COD decided to nerf all the weapons, when they should have made all the weapons as if they already had stopping power when they did away with the perk. 90% of everyone used stopping power on COD until it was done away with. If I want my guns to kill like BF, then I'll play BF. COD is suppose to be more arcadey, and now its just a crappy game, where only guns with high RPM or single shot weapons are worth a damn. Thus every player uses 2-3 out of the 20 guns available. This happened right after IW fell apart. (Ah the days when the M16 killed in 2 bursts)

 

Titanfall is not based on realism, and the trailers and gameplay look promising in how the guns kill. Thats my only wish. If Titanfall has this I will be completely satisfied... btw anyone else notice how pistols seemingly kill in one shot on Ghosts? WTF? During MW2, running around with a tact knife and pistol was a fad, now this pistol thing is going to be what everyone does once they figure out its one shot kills.. thats a little too extreme.

Those are good points. The one thing I don't want to see in Titanfall is kill / score streaks. I'm sure plenty of people love them, but I think they're pointless for game modes that have objectives, but I've mentioned that before. I like the arcade feel you're talking about.. it makes me think about how much fun it was playing Contra and mowing people down with ridiculous weapons. Imagine if Contra was remade into an FPS. :P

 

Oh.. I didn't pay enough attention to see that guns were doing one shot kills. If they are then I'd imagine plenty of people will be running around with nothing but pistols.

I'm glad the tactics involved will be nothing like CoD. And grunts! I was not expecting that. Nice to see some AI characters in there even if they are only there for boosting. It'll keep matches interesting.. instead of walking into a bouncing betty, we'll be getting shot at by a low level NPC. I think the only problem will be if those grunts have specific spawn locations. If people can figure out their spawn locations and spawn kill grunts, they could possibly boost in game to get additional titans. We'll have to see how it plays out. Now they just need to release it for PS4.

A lot of "hardcore" COD players wont like this game since they cant run around on the ground or hide in a window with a claymore on the staircase. Anyone can come through the windows. They've been spoiled by cheap programming the tailors to their cheap gameplay style.

Its definitely a score for Xbox One... but a stupid move for Respawn... thats a lot of lost sales seeing as FPS is at his peak right now. FPS won't be on top forever, its going to fall to another resurging genre eventually.

It sucks for them. They have a game with an amazing amount of buzz and a large chunk of potential fans will end up passing on it. MS must have paid some good money, its a good strategy on their part though.

I read today that Respawn didn't even know. it was a deal EA put in place... one of the draw backs to being working for the big publishers. I bet they dont see any of the deal money and only profit from the sales.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
