So Titanfall?

How does this compare to mech warrior?

Well fighting in Titans is like 50% of the game, where ground fighting is the rest.  Honestly you could play Titanfall out of the Titan the whole time and still dominate.  Certain modes will warrant putting your Titan in defend mode or follow mode, so you have your titan AND you laying death.

Xbox has a bundle: standard console, all the goodies, titanfall and a month of xbl for 499. Good deal.

I preordered that earlier. I really am stoked for Titanfall.

So get this horse poo. Been having massive problems with my console. First it was networking issues. Then the kinect quit working. Now it won't play any DVDs or blu rays. Called ms. We try to trouble shoot it. Nothing. Bought it 21 days ago. They say the console is bad. As soon as the weather clears here I'm going to return it, get money back and put it all on the titanfall bundle.

One of the friends I have with Xbox One's have had to send his in to MS for repairs on the same issue. It isn't as prevalent as the RROD, but it is an issue.

It sucks. Have two xbox one consoles here and two 360s. Only having this issue with this specific console. The other is running perfectly.

Yeah that is terrible. Hope mine doesn't get the bug.

So everybody is apeshit about this game.

 

But how are FPS games differentiating themselves these days? Playing team deathmatch with your buddies or on a pub server is pretty worn out at this point.

Yep, preordered mine last week as well for XBONE.  At it's core it's still an FPS, but the addition of the titan mech really changes the dynamic of the "everyday" first person shooter.  I've poured more hours than I care to admit into every major FPS going back since MW2/BFBC2, and this is the first time in a while where I was really impressed with it.  The beta maps played really smooth.  You'd also think that being in a mech would make them overpowered, but the balance is still really good.  All pilot (human) players have anti-mech weapons that do more damage vs. mechs, so it's really a pretty evenly matched game whether on foot or inside of a mech. 

 

Not crazy about the auto-pistol and it's autoaiming capability.  After dying many times to it, I decided that if you cant beat em, join em.  What I found (now I didn't really know what I was doing) is that it takes too long to lock on.  I'd end up getting killed while waiting on the 3rd lock to activate. 

 

Over time I'm sure the hysteria will die down as it becomes repeatitive (as any FPS), but it is a nice breath of fresh air on the FPS scene.

If you have it on PC, that is preloaded, there is a way to play it right now lol.  Respawn said it's cool, no bans will be handed out.

It's running dedicated servers on the cloud. As far as the hype.... I think it's well justified. As I said earlier, I had zero interest in the game. Just another shooter I thought. I played the beta and geeked the fuged out. From "death match" to attrition (a conquest, domination vibe), not only are you dealing with players but also bots and specters (which can be hacked and in turn used on your team).

I got an early halo vibe. I'm going to act like a teenager and go to the midnight release then stay up all damn night. If anyone wants to squad up post your xbone gt and lets do the damn thing.
