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.

      My parents visited me over the weekend. Had a great time.  I wish I lived in the same state as the rest of my family so I could see them all more often.

      Finally got around to watching Black Mirror since, you know, I'm bored because I can't work (and as much as I try I just can't bring myself to play anything game wise outside of FFXIV and a little bit of Destiny (I'm stuck at 267 and have no urge to do the Exotic quests and I really don't want to level another character right now)).
      Gotta say this is definitely one of my favorite shows now. Really love how they're stand alone episodes that have no interconnection with each other (well they seem to all take place in the same year and same world (based on little hints I picked up in various episodes) but they're completely separate stories of their own). Some of the episode are really fucked up (the last episode of season 3, while not fucked up, is pretty fucking dark and has given rise to a new fear for me (saying what it is will ruin it if you haven't seen it), still one of my favorite episodes though) and some are really well thought out and emotional (the San Junipero episode is really fucking good).
      All around it's a great fucking series (better be it's British, yeah I have a thing for British television) and I highly recommend it. Figured I'd start Stranger Things this weekend since it sounds like I'll be out of work for another week (according to my surgeon's nurse when I talked to her on the phone, I'll find out more tomorrow) and be ready for when season 2 airs in Oct.

      My mattress has been killing my back and sides for over a year now. I kept adjusting how I was sleeping, got a mattress pad, etc. Screw this thing. I bought a mattress in a box from walmart.com for cheap. $140. I thought about getting a memory foam one but I read that they trap heat too easily so I went with a Slumber 1 brand coil spring.
      Sure as hell this mattress showed up in a box. It was vacummed sealed in a bag, folded and rolled up. When I broke that plastic seal it inflated so damn fast that it made a whistling noise thru the plastic bag as I was cutting it open. lol. It feels pretty comfortable so far but I have to let it air out for "full recovery" for 48 hours. I'd have rather gotten an expensive really nice beauty rest mattress or something else from a mattress store, but I'm tight on funds. This seems decent enough for now.

      Well yesterday was fun. Had really bad abdominal pain and ended up in the ER only to find out I had acute appendicitis and had to have surgery (all in all spent 10 hours in the ER, got home at 4:30 this morning). Now I'm in pain and out of work for at least a week. At least I get Vicadin as my pain killer (whenever my mother pucks the prescription up, I can't drive for the next week so yea).
      Guess it's time to get caught up on my anime and game backlogs.
