I'll be going tonight, might do a small write up on my experience.

I was there yesterday too, around 4:00. Still not a big fan of the new Bounty Hunter mode, but the core gameplay is a lot of fun. I was able to land a few Titan executions and the animation of the Titan jamming it's huge gun into the enemy cockpit never got old. Felt like an idiot because when I played it at the EA Play event I couldn't figure out how to switch to the anti-titan weapon as I kept hitting right on the Dpad but they switched it over to the weapon swap button, so I guess anti-titan weapons replace pilot sidearms? Don't know how I missed that. Also accidentally picked up a shotgun and it surprisingly had really good range on it. I would even compare it's range to a SPAS from MW2, not quite the rate of fire though.

The battery you steal is used to give your Titan some shield HP, IIRC.

I found this out after I first played it, so when I played this time I tried it out, stole an enemy battery and grappled onto a friendly titan but as I was inserting the battery the Titan blew up.

Yeah, I think they mentioned that Titan's shields don't regenerate on their own anymore, so the only way to replenish them would be to steal enemy batteries and recharge allied titans with them.

Missed titanfall 1 but this is looking really good. Unfortunately behind the spectacle it looks like it's yet another game with incredibly low TTK, frequent instakills and shooting people in the back a lot, which I used to have the patience for but kinda don't anymore. What was titanfall 1 like by comparison?

TFall1 was like then when you were a pilot: fast movement, wall-running parkour, and short TTK. Once you got into a titan, it became much more positional and slower paced. One of my favorite parts was the blend of the CoD and Halo styles of OHKs for pilots and regenerating shields for titans.

No more normal regenerating shields for titans though unless you steal a shield battery.

TTK's fast but not COD fast, and the fact that the maps are fairly vast, coupled with your movement and gear options, means you can actually be pretty survivable. I'm talking about TF1 here and I assume TF2 will be much the same.

to GET HYPE, obviously?

Is it me, or are the MP changes - I'm thinking specifically about the shield cores being something you get via rodeo (only?) - seem to be making it so you cannot take a Strider and the quad rockets and just dash from everyone after shooting rockets everywhere? that was my go-to "I need an MVP this round" strategy.

well that and pubbing because getting MVP with you guys around lol, no

I don't understand why people aren't excited for this game (all the lines for other games were considerably longer than titan fall).
I'd guess Respawn and EA are trying to snag the folks who are fed up with CoD.

Infinite Warfare is still going to sell as well as ever, but I'm hoping they don't gently caress this up with microtransations or something equally stupid. It's definitely a chance to put a dent in Activision's numbers. Especially with the remaster bullshittery that's got most fans unhappy already.

Singleplayer looks fun! I couldn't really tell but is he only carrying two weapons? Looks like he switched between 3 or 4 without swapping out or picking up new ones.

Yeah. I played TF1 for a while on the PC and while it was good the community up and died pretty fast when the first expansion hit, hope this does better.

When I got to play TF2 you only had two weapons, looks like they got rid of sidearms its just a main weapon and a anti-titan weapon now.

Single player looks pretty cool, choosing different things to say to your robot friend probably won't make a difference in the story but it's a neat touch IMO.

It's easier to get a beta build for a known hardware target like consoles, but this does make me laugh:

quote:

Also, because the single player story has some wonderful secrets that we really want to preserve for launch, we also have to worry about leaks. Our wonderfully curious PC players have proven in the past that they will dig out anything they can, and there's a risk that they could spoil some of our single player.

"hey, what's the most polite way I can say you stupid fuckers always try to spoil everything by datamining and I hate that?"

Reading between the lines it does seem pretty honest: "our console builds are further along than our PC ones, we don't want to take the time to build up a PC one right now, also gently caress you for datamining come on, Optimus Primebot's noble sacrifice must stay secret until the NDAs expire"

like I'm not saying that's a good thing, but at least they're admitting it

Yeah but it to me makes me worried it'll be a rushed PC port and will play like poo poo on launch.

Launch is only two months away and they haven't tested the game on PC pretty much at all by their own admission.

That's a valid concern but it'll probably be fine. Titanfall 1 didn't get a tech test until a month before launch and it was fine on PC.
