Default Titanfall - First Impressions

So who else got in the beta? Any first impressions you'd like to share?

I thought it was pretty awesome. Graphics aren't the best, but fuck it, that means nothing. Gameplay is most important, and I loved it.

The burn cards were interesting. I hardly used them though. Never got any that called down a titan though, sadly enough, but if I did, I would've used those in a heartbeat.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Impressions? Here's my impression.

FUCK THIS GAME FOR COMING OUT THE SAME DAY AS DARK SOULS 2!

The beta was pretty immense, and everything seems to flow and work well. Then again, seeing as the project was headed up by the guys responsible for CoD2 and 4 (The only REALLY good CoD games), this shouldn't come as a surprise.

The gameplay itself is nice and fast, yet pretty deep for what it is, and I really like how Titans are a support system, not the be-all and end all. As I tend to play fast and agile characters in games, this is great for me as it means I'm really not punished for playing almost exclusively infantry.

As impressed as I was, though? I won't be playing this for a fair while after launch seeing as I'll have Dark Souls 2 to play like a maniac. Few weeks of trolling about in PVP and then I'll get to trying to route it for speedrunning.

On Xbox1 it's open beta right now. Clicked on it the other day and DL's/ got it all set up. Played through the tutorial and was highly impressed. Really wanted to play more, but I hate to earn stuff, then get the full game and have to start over. Will be getting the game though. Gonna be fun.

This game is an Origin game, so no luck on Steam I imagine.

Yeah. Its a shame Origin sucks...... but hey, I can live with it for Titanfall and BF4 with friends.

According to devs, the final release will not require Origin unless bought via Origin.

It will, however, require an EA/Origin account as it will be using their login/auth servers

I actually had more fun outside of a titan than I did inside it. As the Beta only included 2 maps, and 1 type of titan I'm curious to see what other options are available. I have high hopes and will be buying it.
