yeah, i really liked when they added it, i love that type of mode anyway and it like refreshed the game for me, i'd love when a team stays together (rather than people bailing out) and finally cracks a wave of nuke and mortar titans after getting trounced the first two times

also it was horribly unbalanced in terms of xp it'd give out, you'd get like three or four levels a match even if you lost if you stayed through the whole thing especially if your turrets went mad :lol

i was hoping this time they'd be able to actually setup the maps for it as a proper variation rather than just insert it into the regular ones with just some minor adjustments

i suppose they might have felt the new mode was good enough for launch and maybe they do want to edit the maps for it, they did change up the modes a lot with the last game as time went on, and they have said no paying for mappacks this time

the new domination variation sounds cool where it rewards you for holding the point instead of just trading it back and forth like CoD

Does the game have the standard mode from the original that wasn't in the beta? What's the name, Attrition?

They haven't spoken on it much but it feels like their angle this time is more the hardcore pro kinda crowd. Thats why you see a heavy focus on LTS, CTF and Pilot vs Pilot. They're bet I think, is that all these hardcore youtubers is whats gonna give it legs.

Which may work givne how ppl seep to be down on IW.

It is kinda weird that EA is smashing its two games together like this, I guess to try and derail Call of Duty with them combined since just Battlefield didn't seem to do it?

Someone i forgot where said that for EA, it isn't about crushing CoD so to speak, but simply putting a dent, whittling it down, making a crack etc is the point. Less out right stomp and more "so long as that 1 out of 5 guy picks either game over CoD" kinda scenario

I found plenty of players for titanfall one on xbox for a good long time. I'm sure the same will hold for the current consoles versions. PC versions of everything die unless its one of a few big franchises.

Although you were whining about nearly everything concerning the original game before it ever came out so I kinda doubt this is your actual concern.

Titanfall will never be one of the mega big shooter franchises most likely sales wise ala Battlefield or COD. Still a very enjoyable game.

I think it was more the marketing I was whining about which labeled it exactly as a the next big thing etc. when it was sent to die as a xbone exclusive.

Just wondering what the status is on the sequel as there seems zero buzz and Battlefield just came out etc.

Yeah, while Titanfall on Origin died ultra-fast there were a decent amount of people still playing on Xbone from what I read.  But it still tanked pretty quickly in general.

I'm not sure that releasing the sequel a week after Battlefield 1 was such a good idea, either.

No reason for him to whine now- it's on Playstation.  :doge

There is no first person shooter on the market that feels as good moving around as Titanfall 2 does.

DOOM has amazing feedback and impact when murdering motherfuckers, but Titanfall 2 is so fucking fluid it's insane. Everything feels so finely tuned. I cannot praise the feel of this game enough.

-The PS4 copy I got is coming from Amazon's own shipping service, which has a horrible reputation.  Still no activity yet when I track it.

Seriously this franchise seems doomed since it went Xbox exclusive but mow EA sent it to die between BF1 and COD

Quote
The general consensus seems to be that Titanfall 2 is very, very good. (We're still working on it, but the indications are very promising so far.) But as this CNBC report makes clear, making a good game does not necessarily guarantee commensurate riches. Electronic Arts' share price dropped by more than four percent today, following analyst predictions that Titanfall 2 sales will come in far below what was expected.

"We are downgrading EA shares ... because we believe that Titanfall 2 sales are going to be substantially disappointing, enough to offset [the] upside from Battlefield 1," Cowen & Co. analyst Doug Creutz wrote in a note to clients. "We expect a correction in shares between now and early next year as we believe the stock is priced for upside to current Street consensus."

No it isn't. Just look at how lowkey this release is. I have no clue why EA bankrolled a second one outside of them giving Respawn a chance to hit Playstation after how poorly received (in terms of player retention) the first one was.

From what I've been hearing, pre-orders are pretty low for consoles and the PC player base seems low compared to the Console base (just like last time). So, I mean... unless they deep discount it like the first one for $7, I don't know how they'll get people on board despite word of mouth being "yeah, but it's okay!"

EA had originally signed Respawn to a multi-game publishing deal, and they locked in the Titanfall franchise after the first one sold a million copies in the first three months.

When I jumped onto the PC version, I couldn't even get into a Pilot Vs. Pilot match.  Not enough players.  :lol :(

PS4 is better but there's a still a lower number of people playing compared to other FPS games. 

The game is awesome and shits all over this year's CoD though, unsurprisingly.  Too bad it's probably gonna bomb.  I'll likely be playing this a lot more on PS4 since it seems like PC is almost DOA right out of the gate.

Lack of server browser, no beta (unlike last time), and general not fixing things PC gamers complained about last time doomed their Titan.

Ok the single player was easily one of the best of the year. Honestly almost up there with Doom. Amazingly paced, fantastic set pieces, and honestly very solid gameplay that doesn't feel like it's holding your hand.

I mean I feel like it's been such a long time since I've played a single player campaign that feels like it's confident and so in control. Here is a game that after it's laid out its foundations actually throws cool little senerios and knows how to correctly ramp up the action. Here's a game that knows how to actually be a game. While I wish the boss characters were a bit more involved, they still touch that Metal Gear Solid esque thing that I love Boss characters for. They have some actual cool designs and presence. Not as much as say Metal Gear Rising, but they tried. And that's what this game feels like. It feels like a game deigned by people who actually gave a damn. Who wanted to craft something you'd care about. From the awesome set pieces such as fighting around a a moving ship fleet to having a cool sidekick. And yes the game avoided being in your face with the whole Robot becomes more human thing. It's actually rather subdued honestly.

You know what? This game was just great.

Played the first two stages of the campaign and one map of attrition MP.  Was ok.  Had more fun in the one attrition map than the first two levels.  First level was alright, gorgeous and some nice platforming, but mostly a tutorial stage.  Second sewers level was a bit boring hallways and the only interesting room was the one you had to hold out against waves in and were totally outnumbered so you had to keep moving.  I dunno, probably shouldn't have picked this up.  It feels like a good quality Call of Duty with wallrunning, slides and double jumps and a bit of Crysis with the camo ability.  I really don't like CoD or any kind of aim down the sites warfare FPS games.  I enjoyed DOOM a ton because it felt so different, fresh and polished for an FPS.  While Doom doesn't have wallrunning, coming straight from finishing Doom earlier this week to Titanfall, Doom feels way better in smooth fast movement and combat feedback and balance is much more satisfying there.  TF2 is good, but as a not military FPS person, I'm not loving it.  I tried TF2 and World of FF today and after playing an hour or so of each I'd rather play more World of FF than TF2, but then rpgs are my bread n' butter.  Doom worked in a way that it was an FPS for not-fps fans, but not getting that feeling here.  I'll keep playing the TF2 campaign but may end up spending more time playing MP since I found attrition more exciting than the first two stages.

One nice thing about TF2 is it runs really great.  Have everything maxed and haven't dropped from 60fps at all at 1080p.  Also the art direction is top-notch.

Beat the 2nd boss and yeah, while I like some of the mech parts (like the 2nd boss fight or when you fight a group of titans; fighting non-titan enemies in a mech is pretty boring) because you can switch between your setups and there's some interesting stuff like the Scorch flame AoE strategies, the combat just does nothing for me on-foot.  It's perfectly good, but I'm just not into aiming down the sights with an assault rifle taking out a shooting gallery of bad guy army dudes anymore and while the platforming is kinda fun, it just makes me remember Mirror's Edge has a sequel I still haven't played and I should be playing that instead for better wallrunning and platforming. 

I think another reason why I like the mech parts better is you keep getting new cool weapons.  This is the reason why I like Insomniac games, getting neat non-traditional weapons to play around with.  But on-foot segments so far have just been assault rifle/shotgun/smg/sniper rifle zzzzzzzzzzz with the only cool stuff the grenade weapons (flaming shuriken was cool).  If they start introducing some crazy sci-fi weapons to play with on the on-foot segments I'll probably get into them more.  Otherwise will just push through the on-foot parts to enjoy the mech parts.

Was talking to duckroll and he asked me what difficulty I was on.  I said normal cause that's what the game recommended to me at the intro plus I usually play games on normal and he said this is one of those games were normal is brain dead easy, especially on-foot and hard is more fun because you need to play smarter instead of just brainless shooting gallery.  So will try doing the rest on hard and see if I get more out of it.

Wasn't really feeling the time travel stage too much.  Was interesting, but felt kinda jank and the mechanic's been done before in other games.  Only rooms I liked were the ones where there was combat on both sides and you're weaker because you don't have cloak, but stronger because of the time travel.  The elevator room was fun.

Anyhow, the stage after with the satellite dish and the beam switch weapon was great.  My favorite level in the game so far.  Lots of great mirror's edge-ish platforming, really long and varied stage, and a few good combat bits.  Boss was pretty tough on hard, would kill my titan in like 4 with his rifle that just did insane damage.  Ended up running back and making some space and hiding behind a rock and setting him on fire.  Been pretty much using the flame + gas combo on every boss so far since if you trap them in the flames it can instantly kill them or at least get them close.

What difference would a few extra days make? It was still releasing between Battlefield and Call of Duty, and had Titanfall 1's issues (dying playerbase) to work past.
