While We Wait
After the Titanfall Alpha, all I wanted to do was play Titanfall again, and I was surprised by my own dissatisfaction with everything else. Now the Beta has come and gone and we are still left with a two week wait. While it is no substitute, there is a pretty cool game coming out on the 25th, and it looks to have enough rum in the punch to keep us blissfully silly, having fun and playing together, ’till March 11th.
In case you don’t plan on watching the video, allow me to summarize some of the gameplay, and then urge you to watch. Popcap has borrowed from everyone and Garden Warfare offers asymmetrical, class-based, TF2/Conker’s Bad Fur Day/Battlefield/GoW OverRun type gameplay. Really, this game has WAY more on the disc that I was ever expecting. For those of you with daughters, this may be the game that you can use to get them into gaming. split-screening at your side. Again, at the very least, it should be fun enough to take our minds off what we really want to play, and tide us over until the 11th, and it is forty and not sixty bucks. As I mentioned in a comment before, Tim is buying it for Cornie for his birthday, so there will always be at least two of us playing come the 25th. Now, click play on that video.
P.S. It is possible that EA/Popcap will release a demo, and if it is similar in scope to the GoW:J Overrun demo, that may actually be enough for two weeks for those unwilling/unable to buy.
