    6 vs 6? GAH.

    32 vs 32 would have been nice. Instead we'll get bots … loads and loads of bots.

    I can't even tell its only 6v6. Not a single point of playing have I felt like there isn't enough players. When there's 12 mechs on the field at once it gets really hectic.

    Details: When I'm done playing! lol

    Yeah, I don't really play online multiplayer -- especially FPS type games, but 6v6 seems more than adequate. In fact, I think (especially with Mechs) that 32v32 would be insane. I don't think I'd like it.

    Back in the day, when I did play some FPS multiplayer -- some of the most fun I had was playing over LAN with only about 6 people TOTAL!

    i'm just watching video of this game and it actually looks pretty good. but since it's an fps, i'd get it on PC even if i had an xbox. (i mean, seriously, who wouldn't?)

    kk details. lol The graphics are fantastic. Lots of Blue and Silvers on top of those browns and greys guys! But really its not as gritty as other games in my opinion. They're apparently using low res textures for the alpha but I think it looks a little better than BF4 already.

    Sadly, I don't get much time to look at the detail (there's a lot) because the game is so fast pace. The double jumping reminds me of Metroid Prime which is a good thing. Everything's very fluid. Anything you see people do in the trailers is not only possible, but its easy to execute. If I want to get to the top of a 3-story building I just have to look for my preferred way to get on top, whether its wall running, double jumping, wall climbing, hoping in and out of windows from building, its the best kind of parkour I've experienced in a game.

    The beta only has about 5 main guns for pilots, 3 guns for mechs, and 2 anti-titan guns. The coolest gun is the smart pistol which is a close range weapon that can lock on to enemies and auto-kill if it gets a good lock when you pull the trigger. It takes a few seconds to lock on, but combined with the cloak you can actually pull out some good steal kills. Speaking of which, there's cloaking in this game and it works much better than halo's cloak. On top of the fact that there's so much going on and you're usually more focused on the titan's, stealthy kills are definitely a way to play the game.

    The game pretty much plays as advertised. Its one of the few games I've seen trailers of all this promise and crazy maneuvers and such that I can easily replicate in game and plays just the way I imagined it would. I like the fact also that the pilots (humans) are as deadly as the titans (mechs). I took out 4 titan's in one match earlier on foot, which so far is the highest number I've seen anyone online take out on their own in one match. Sneaking up on mechs is fun, catching a ride of either their mech or yours is fun. Getting ejected out of your mech, only to land on the guy who just killed you and blow his up is super satisfying.

    While I'm probably just coming off a new game high (it really does feel like a new experience, its hard to compare it to any game... maybe Metroid Prime X Halo X Call of Duty?) it is one of the most fun i've had with an online FPS. They've seem to have succeeded in every area of the game they were trying to achieve and I congratulate them on that. There may be balance issues, but I'm currently having too much fun running off walls, into a window and drop kicking the guy who was camping (which is actually non-existent in this game because there is almost 0 reward to camping). The only complaint I have is because of this NDA agreement I'm breaking with this post, I can't say "XBOX, RECORD THAT" because I'd probably be doing it almost every match with how many epic moments this game has.

    i might end up owning all three systems again this generation.

    i'm not sure if i'm just itching to spend money on something new, but the game looks really cool and i'm not sure if my macbook air can run it that well despite having 8gb of ram and an i7... it still has the air stock graphics card, and that's integrated so there's not much i can do about it.

    if my air can comfortably run this i will not get an xbox but if good reviews start coming out and forum members suggest it... it looks like i'm spending $560 more than i was planning to this spring on video games. question, can i point the kinect or whatever away from me into a wall or something? i dont want that thing pointed at me.

    to me it looks like a toned down / more realistic version of team fortress/borderlands. to me, this concept is fairly new and pretty creative.

    isn't X just xenoblade with mechs and shinier graphics?

    If you're talking about "zomg graphics" I spent very little of that actually talking about it lol but in the area of "new" Its very rare that we ever get an FPS that actually feels like a NEW experience :P

    EDIT: but yes that was still an accurate description of how a feel. I'm sure a game critic could give you a better description. I'm just excited to be playing something that doesn't feel like "generic FPS # 24025".

    Haha, I know and I didn't put what I said to be insulting. I saw that huge wall of text, skimmed what you wrote, and thought to myself "How can I sum this up?"

    oh okay haha yea basically I'm on a "new game high" so it did sum it up pretty well lol it just sounded like you were passing it off as another generic CoD FPS but with prettier graphics lol

    Yea as much as I like the game, its still hard to justify paying $60 for an online only game. All the factors are lined up for a purchase for me though. I need more good next gen games lol, playing other online FPS's are making me wish I was playing Titan Fall instead lol, and if I can still find a match pretty quickly in CoD 4, then I'm sure this game will always have people to play with.

    But yea I don't doubt anyone for passing on Titan Fall because of online only.

    I have never been on board with Deep Down but I didn't even know it was online only. Destiny I'm super pumped for though and I totally see where they are going with the online only. Most people have an internet connection these days anyways. Can't wait for Destiny :P

    Titan Fall just seems like a hard purchase because if all the content comes to about the same amount as a call of duty game's online, then why am I paying $60 for it? It better have a lot of online content if thats all it is. But even Battlefield 4 gives you Multiplayer as the first option before Campaign now, which is kinda weird to me.

    Kinda hoping that Borderlands 3 is not online only for the sake of "persistent worlds" though. Just use the XB1 cloud and have the PS4 version be online only if they really want it lol

    yeah I lost all my hope for Deep Down as soon as they said it was online only, then i was like oh well maybe... but then they hit me with that it was free to play AND being made by Capcom. That sent red flags by the truck load and I'm like yeah no D:

    Destiny and Titan Fall are no goes for me, same as an eventually borderlands 3 D:

    Titanfall will be the next Xbox One game I'm getting. It's also gonna be for PC, but the means and funds to build a rig that could run current games is not yet in my grasp.

    It's looking great so far! Even if it is 6v6. That honestly didn't bother me at all. Online team multiplayer is just that, the amount of players in a match never really hindered my enjoyment in games.

    This is probably why I have not enjoyed a multiplayer FPS game since GoldenEye where you played 4 player local split screen. Playing online with many strangers is no fun to me. I much rather have a smaller more personal setting playing with friends.

    Well I guess it's really time I start upgrading my PC (seriously, this thing's optimized for like 2010/2011 at best)

    The first time I had a human jump on my mech I ran over to my team mate's mech and put my back to him. Amazingly he actually shot him right off of me! TEAMWORK! :O

    But I usually get the most Titan kills on my team... as a human its great!
