Wednesday Chat, March 5


Opinions, we all have them, although if you head over to places like Neogaf you'll soon find out that it's wrong to have an opinion unless you agree with the masses.



I have opinions, for instance I worried that Respawn Entertainment and EA were very quiet regarding the on-disc content of Titanfall. In fact we still don't know that much apart from what's leaked (which is far from officially confirmed) and perhaps even more concerning for me is that Vince Zampella has given some detail on the two hour 'multiplayer campaign.' 

This 'multiplayer campaign' worries me. Apparently it consists of the multiplayer matches you will play normally, stitched together with cutscenes. Zampella says, "Generally people will burn through a single-player campaign as fast as they can ..." almost as if this is a good excuse not to put any effort into one. But what about the players who enjoy single player campaigns, like me? Does overlooking a campaign not set a dangerous precedent? What happens if Titanfall is the most successful franchise ever and everyone decides to copy its formula, does this mean that single player campaigns in FPS games will be lost forever? 

I for one hope that there is more to the Titanfall campaign than it seems. I also hope that the leaked maps and content which everyone expects to be on the disc make an appearance at launch and not as part of the season pass which has also been confirmed.

Some people say I should just not worry my head about these things, but I do because I care.

I've questioned the hype of this game on many occasions and I just hope that people are not setting themselves up for a fall. I want all games to be a huge success, because that way our industry grows and we'll get even bigger and better games.

Like I say, we all have opinions. What's yours?

Let's Chat!

No, I can hold my own, I've won many a game of Halo in my time, it's the conversation, if you can call a constant stream of abuse from obnoxious kids conversation.

That's the point though now'a'days it doesn't happen with the inclusion of party chat..

If the point nowadays is everybody just being a wanker to each other then I really don't want anything to do with it.

true that. me and my friends have made the point of not being in a party when we play now to try and get some interaction. but basically its either nothing, profanity or music. the last time someone was actually talking game chat i made a few solid mates that i have played with for years...

Been offered another Prime trial too, don't see the point in it though, games preorders get free release day delivery anyway, and lovefilms online service is terrible.

To be honest I think most people buying Titanfall won't worry about this, just like with COD/Battlefield games I'd guess the majority will buy it for the MP. Personally for me with games I've mentioned I'd rather the developers scrap the SP side of it altogether and concentrate on the MP. It works the other way around to, games like the recent Tomb Raider, in my opinion the MP felt like a cheap add on, they should have just spent this time on the SP. I can't see them scrapping SP FPS games but who knows.Personally I don't mind MP only titles, just as I don't mind SP only titles so I can't say I'm worried either way but I think there will always be a choice. Having said this, if Eurogamer are correct in what they said today .. "Titanfall will outsell any other game in 2014 by a HUGE amount" ... maybe there are more people now that prefer MP over SP?
