Omar: I'll do what I can to help y'all. But, the game's out there, and it's play or get played. That simple.
Dennis 'Cutty' Wise: The game done changed...
It’s a game about new ideas, and they all feel so natural from the moment you start playing. …
But I suspect the key to Titanfall’s longevity will be the way you always have more options than you can hope to explore in the same match, and the way the systems clash to create memorable and unpredictable spectacle. I’m used to playing FPS games where everyone does the same thing spawn after spawn, but in Titanfall I never know where I’m going to go. If I can’t make it up that street, I might go over it, or spawn in my titan, or play that burn card to change my rules for this round, or just go in a totally different direction.
Ultimately, we don’t care what other people say because we have already played it for ourselves. Still, while we wait for the games to arrive (our digital versions should be downloadable by 5 pm local time Tuesday) it is fun to blow the horns, wave our t-shirts above our heads, and exchange hi-fives and silly grins because we know our new game is a winner!
The Twitch “Broadcasting” feature is going live on the 11th (which most of us have known already), but we weren’t entirely sure everything that would entail. Major Nelson shows us a quick demonstration as to how the Twitch functionality is going to work on the One. Personally, my favorite thing is that you don’t need Twitch to be snapped to continue your broadcast. Add the fact that you can Archive your broadcasts to your profile and save the footage for future views makes it a fully functional streaming app.
There’s also some other awesome little tidbits that the app has to offer. Check out the video for a full run-through.
Can’t wait to start watching our domination in Titanfall from multiple perspectives!
I embedded this video in a comment shortly after Herandar posted about Project Spark. I am sure that everyone has already watched it, but I am finding that I can’t keep it off the front page any longer. When you see the wall-running, “epic” doesn’t begin to do it justice. This isn’t just some pretty, falsely-claimed, under-1080p Killzone Shadow Fall footage that looks great, but plays barely more innovative than Call of Duty 3. We know, we’ve played it already.
What you see in the video is exactly what you are going to get when you play it. And more, because Respawn has cut the strings. The freedom of movement in Titanfall as compared with the movement in other games, is like the difference between Mr. Anderson at the beginning of The Matrix and Neo at the end.
You play Titanfall, you take the red pill, and you get to see just how deep the rabbit-hole goes. To Sony Fanbois I say, “Dodge this!”
I know that most of you are entirely in with Titanfall, and the upcoming release. But for those of you that aren’t (or those that play multiple games at the same time) the Beta for Project Spark is coming to the Xbox One today. I signed up a couple of months ago and got my invite near immediately. I will be getting it today.
A Reddit user, FallenFusion, leaked the top-down views of all fifteen maps for Titanfall. They’re all asymmetrical which I think is a good thing. You can pause the slideshow & zoom in on the maps for more details on the landmarks. Time to start planning, Pilots!
This has been out for a couple of days now, but with the fun and excitement of making a new FOD Awards list for Titanfall, I didn’t get around to watching it. Well, I just did, and with Evolve coming out this Autumn, I am now looking forward to both! There have already been hints that there are “sea creatures” in Evolve, so it would make sense that they would offer a Big Lizard. I am also extremely hopeful for the iconic Giant Gorilla. Forget Super Heroes, I am ready for the return of the Monster genre.
It has been a long time since there was a game we could rally around, but The Blankman and I were thinking that Titanfall is it. At least, we gotta ride ‘er until she bucks us off. So, here we are with the NEW and IMPROVED FOD awards!
This page will hold all the possible awards that might be earned on any given gaming night, whether we are playing public or private. It is a collaborative deal, so just dump ideas and pics in here as inspiration and a good humor provide.
The Omar Award – “Come at the king, you best not miss!”: Awarded to the two-time consecutive winner of the Heisenberg Award.
