In Topic: So Titanfall?

09 April 2014 - 07:59 AM

So tomorrow, Titanfall comes out for the 360.  Any takers?  I'm strongly on the fence, only because my finances have gotten tight this month.  I remember Thief, which came out to VERY mixed reviews, went only sale for $30 after a few days on XBL before bouncing back up to $60.  If Titanfall does that, I'm all over it.

 

So you can find several youtube videos of the 360 version of titanfall, as well as comparisons.  To me, it looks a lot like CoD (well duh!), which isn't a terrible thing.  Though from seeing the X1 and PC videos and screenshots, I do feel pangs of "me want pretty."  I want to see more of the maps before I do jump on it.    

 

Any thoughts?  I know some of y'all think it's a gimmick game, and others are having a similar issue with the high levels mopping the floor with you.  For those getting curb stomped by the high level folks, do the AI bot enemies make it any easier?  Or does this seem like it's going to go the way of the other FPSes where you're going to constantly get stuck in games with the ubers who clean your clocks and the fun is going to fall through the floor because this is basically the only game mode?

 

You are always going to die when a new game comes out, you just have to get the hang of it.  If you have CoD experience the shooting at least will be familiar.  In terms of graphics, it doesn't look amazing on PC, it looks good though.  I wouldn't worry about graphics, not on a FPS, at least to a point.  The important thing is it plays well, even with a ton of Titans on the screen at once.  It's balanced.  You get used to graphics in a week anyway.

Solid pilot.  Should make for an interesting show, just not sure how long it could go on for.  Bell is a good actor though.

they could, but i don't think the character has the following they'd want in an Iron Man replacement... i love Don Cheadle, but he hasn't done much and with the average Marvel film fan loving RDJ as Iron Man and without question viewing Iron Patriot/Don Cheadle as a direct replacement, there would be a major drop off
 

fox and marvel studios have traded some franchises already (Daredevil, Ghost Rider)... but i don't see those larger franchises moving without big paydays going to Disney. of course, with Lucas Films/Star Wars/Indiana Jones all being scooped up in the very recent past, it wouldn't be out of the question

in my personal opinion... fox can hold on to F4 and drag them through the mud all they want. never been a huge fan and can't see them fitting into the Marvel U that Marvel Studios has created... too happy go-lucky and not real world enough.

 

In the comics the F4 are very important in a lot of the huge story lines.  Mainly, Reed Richards is a vastly important character in the Marvel history being the highest scientific mind they know.   If done right, they could make them a bit more serious too.   F4 was also like the first hero group to be known in the comics, only Cap really predates them and he was a bit different being a patriot and not a group with a cool tower.

The downside of having 20+ episode seasons is you get filler episodes or some uninteresting sub-plots. I could see how letting all the episodes build up would make for a better watching experience.

 

This season has had very few filler episodes though.  Usually they have had a part in the larger story that is going on.  Season 1 though, yeah, it had fillers, but it was needed to build up Arrow's character and the fact he used to have no problems killing everyone.

Cocaine is a helluva drug.

 

What a though provoking post.   Was a great contribution.  Would read again.
