Titanfall

Anyone else besides me disappointed this will be multiplayer only? In all honesty, that's going to alienate a shit ton of people from buying it. It'll still do well, surely, but what about those who don't have many friends (such as me), have kids, don't enjoy multiplayer, etc? I like story modes.

I still enjoy dishin' out a good old fashion passionate ass whoopin' on people in Gears!

The multiplayer looks solid enough that there's no need to force in some half assed story mode.

More and more people are getting into online gaming, I am definitely not disappointed as I love MP only shooters such as Wolf ET, and Planetside 1&2. I don't think it will alienate tons of people, more so it will possibly suck in those who aren't big into mp games.
Plus with a MP only game, 100% of the development time goes into the mp instead of split between Campaign and MP and it will show in the quality of the game.

a bit yes. the trailer looked great until i found it was multiplayer only. i will still buy it, a single player campaign would have been nice however.

i also hope we see real multiplayer as in team deatchmatch, domination, capture the flag instead of all of these singleplayer/multiplayer mixes

I'm obviously speaking for myself, but I wouldn't buy a multiplayer only game. Sorry, but Titanfall doesn't get any of my $$$! Has there EVER been a good, SP mech game anyway? Titanfall would have been very promising in SP.

The only MP only game I recall being worthwhile was Shadowrun. Hopefully Titanfall will do better financially, although I will be passing myself.

I agree. I can see how it could be a negative to some people, but honestly, we have more than enough mediocore modern war campaigns. I'm sure being who they are in the industry they've done enough research to know that some massive percentage of people who buy these kind of games just skip the campaign altogether now. The only reason I even bother with the Call of Duty campaigns are for the achievements because without it, you'd have none for most of the games. I actually wish I did skip them in hindsight because I could have just deleted those blemishes from my game history.

I am finding that I play less and less multiplayer lately. I have been going for more of the games with stories. So I really want to try out Titanfall. However the multiplayer only part may keep me out of it. I realize I am out of the recent norm.

I do wish them well and appreciate that they didn't do a crappy campaign "just because", but I am still not part of their target demographic. Instead of playing games with 12-year-old kids, I am more likely to yell at them to get off my lawn.

Alienate? You must not be aware of the numbers.

Less than 20% of players completed the Black Ops campaign. Less than 20% of players completed the Battlefield 3 campaign.

http://www.gamezone.com/news/2011/11...layer-campaign

What does this mean? Not an awful lot of people give a shit about the campaign. I would even say that those who prefer the campaign to the multiplayer are the minority, with or without the numbers being known.

Titanfall will do fine as an online-only experience. And if Microsoft allow cross-platform support for the game, it will only do a lot better than what people first thought.

Well, a game that's building hype like this has a chance of being good. Since the creators are focusing on one specific aspect (MP in this case) without there being any others dragging it down, it has a chance of turning out real well

The teams is made up of developers who made some of the best Call of Duty games in its existence. If anything, they know what they are doing and the more people know who is behind Titanfall, the more fans it will get.

Too bad it's published by EA and they don't such a great fanbase when it comes to multiplayer gaming.

Ah, wasn't aware this was the game Respawn was coming out with. Though still not knowing much about the game itself, I don't see online only being an issue since these people have impressed me in the past. Gonna have to check into this later.

Cross platform would make the game unbalanced...I'd only play on PC at that point for the advantage using a mouse gives you lol.

What if the cross platform meant Xbox vs PlayStation?

Which can be be possible because I believe Nintendo are looking into Wii U/XB1/PS4 cross-play support. If Nintendo are ballsy enough to do it, I don't see why Sony and Microsoft can't play together.

And the PC/XB1 thing came up 2 weeks back.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=546827

That can happen too.

I lol'd so hard at this.

Nothing beats wiping out an enemy squad or getting into a sniper battle with someone in BF3, pwning their n00b ass, getting their hate messages, and sending a voice message back.

Much rage ensues when they realized they got pwned by a grey haired soccer dad.

After watching some new demos and gameplay, I very well might get this and completely do a 180 on my original thoughts! It looks fun!
