I'm just having a hard time being excited for Titanfall. Mech based multiplayer was done really well with the Lost Planet series, so I have no doubt that it would work here. Obviously the Call of Duty elements are going to work (which I have issues with everyone saying it's so similar, because that's a problem with the game getting old, fast), but the free running stuff is where I have issues.

Does anyone remember Brink? It wasn't that different from this and it ended horribly.

I try to forget about Brink, my brother practically brainwashed himself to think he was having fun.

But related to the news, the game seems very interesting. The only issue with me is that it uses too many of CoDs elements and goes around with a huge sign saying "We're not Call of Duty".

-The perk list that was data mined from the beta
-The rumored prestiging system called "Generations"
-During a press conference they said how "Quickscoping won't be a thing" (If you wanted to do your own game with fresh ideas, why bring up CoD related)
-The AI thing just screams Combat Training

There are other things I can't remember but overall they've been waving the "We aren't CoD we swear", yet almost half of their game is CoD related.

Overall, I'd still play it. Just gonna have to wait for the sequel.

tenken Oh, no, no, no, Brink is hugely different than this. No place in the same sentence with Titanfall. Sorry my preview didn't spur your interest, but even if the full game isn't as expansive or customizable as I'd like it'll still have outstanding core gameplay. That's not going to change over night.

Either way, I think Titanfall is this weird combination of different games (it definitely has that Brink running element, no two ways about it) that's going to fall out of topic quickly.

I was super excited for it when it was first announced, and will more than likely pick up a PC copy, but the game strives to be too many different things.

I played Brink. If I could sum the game up in one word, that word would be "okay." With some hesitation.

I really don't see how Titanfall shares any similarities with it, though. Just based on what I've played, anyhow. I'm not necessarily saying your opinion is wrong, but I don't understand the connection?

P.S. Looking forward to this game so much.
