Titanfall 2 feedback has been addressed some of it will be updated for this weekend's Tech Test.
Looks like they will put titans on a meter again. http://www.titanfall...t-and-feedback/

I didn't get a chance to play it last weekend, but these changes sound like they address a lot of the complaints I read in here.


Nice, but they say a "small passive amount of Titan meter " will be gained every few seconds so I'm still skeptical. But I'll give it another whirl this weekend.

If the most skilled "COD style" players are rewarded Titans more frequently, that's still going to be a downer. We'll see. At least it's a move in the right direction.

How is that different than the original?

I thought it was completely time based. Not objective based which is what they even stated was changed in Titanfall 2. So if kill streaks are a bigger factor, for instance, those of us who liked playing Titanfall for the enjoyment of the Titans are going to be offset by COD a$$holes who concentrate purely on kills and even spawn point kills.

In other words, it was more random and fun for everyone IMO. I liked it for NOT being COD.

Edit: I do want to commend Respawn for taking the criticism to heart though. I wasn't sure how set in stone the new system was so good to hear it can be tweaked and they are willing to do so.

Very happy for FH1 BC! Although I was very happy for Red Dead too, and it has been back logged also. Winter is coming, maybe then...right?

You'd get 1% on your meter every few seconds, but killing grunts, pilots, and performing the objectives of the match also took off chunks. Certain burn cards improved that or let you take off large chunks off the time that made it stupidly easy to constantly earn titan drops if you were halfway decent.

 

Titanfall kind of felt like a Call of Duty mod that added mechs to me, especially with how the last few games have been. Just the millions of challenges tied to every aspect of the game and the focus on prestiges made it clear what type of game this team was making before Titanfall.

I don't see anywhere where they've confirmed these changes will be in this weekend's built of TF2. Just that they will work on them, and friend invites will be fixed for this weekend.

 

Someone feel free to point out if they did confirm them for this week.

All I know is last weekend it felt much more like COD to me than it did before. The original was much faster paced, which sounds like they will be cranking up mobility again and mechs were earned much quicker. Personally, I liked the original Titanfall for those reasons so that's what I'm hoping to see this coming weekend.

I think they said at the beginning of the blog post that some of them would be in the build for this weekend but didn't specify which.

Being a CAG is great, but Battlefield is an event for me.  Aside from the Hardline sidestep, they haven't disappointed in a long time.  If reviews are good, I'll be happy to give them full price at launch for the base game.  They took a risk this year with WWI.  Hope it pans out.

I know Trials OTBD isn't a great Trials game and isn't a great Blood Dragon game, but is it worth 10 bucks?

At 10 bucks, I feel it is worth it. I loved Blood Dragon and I love me some Trials. There are some interesting ideas in the game and some cool new mechanics, but it never really clicked for me. Good, not great.

Rockin' it old school single-player style!

Looks like Contrast and Mars: War Logs for me this week.

 

Finally! I get to try out a Forza game. Great selections for September's GWG, especially since I don't own any of them already.

Isn't Elite Dangerous supposed to be a better version of what No Man's Sky tried to do?

They still haven't addressed some of the strange design choices they made with the gear and upgrades which only serves to limit you and slow down gameplay. And all their points started out by defending their decisions rather than admitting fault. In one instance even referring to it as "unintended side effects." Likely story..

 

It's the CoDification of TF folks!

Battlefield 1 Ultimate Edition is up on the store for a whopping $130 (or $117 w/ EA Access). I love Battlefield - but damn.

(Remember, in 2019, all of this DLC will be free and the game will be $5. And best of all, the player base will still be there.)

This game is one of those "make what you will of it" types. There's not much direction. You're given a small ship and told to do your thing. The game has some semblance of missions that pay you money but for the most part it's up to you to decide what you want to do and how you want to earn money. It's up to you how you spend that money and what style of gameplay you choose (pirate, smuggler, trader, explorer, etc.). The galaxy in the game is literally HUGE. My main mission in the game when starting out was to visit the Sol system and it took me weeks to get there with my style of play. And even then I couldn't visit because I didn't have a Sol permit yet (you get this at level 4 with the Federation).

 

Exploration is amazing and extremely realistic. We're not talking about bullshit No Man's Sky style generation where every planet you come across looks identical and has an atmosphere and life. This is vastly unexplored and uninhabited space, but there are a lot of interesting things to find out there. If you've ever wanted to actually explore other worlds then this is as real as it gets.

 

If you have the patience and time to put into it I highly recommend it. It's too bad I have a 9-5 job otherwise I'd be playing it more. It's a beautiful game.

Exactly!!

I've been saying I expect them to go full Don Mattrick at some point and say "if you don't like all the changes then we have a great product for you called Titanfall 1."

Based off the description, Elite: Dangerous sounded really cool, so I looked into it more.

 

Need a Frontier account...no save...no pause...harsh punishments for every mistake...

 

Yeah, Fuck that.  Not for me.

No, but you can set your XB1 to download while it's off ;)

Someone posted that it's free to play for a few days I think. Similar to what they did with Halo 5 a while back.

Thanks for the heads up.  Not sure how long it lasts, but from other forums, seems like people think it's supposed to be this weekend.

 

This is my first Forza motorsport game.  I completed the introductory 3 races and my first two impressions are:

- since the tracks are based on real world tracks, I did not realize so many race tracks had so many 90 degree turns

- maybe my expectations were overly unrealistic, but I was seriously disappointed in the graphics.  I always thought that since the game only has to draw in a set number of cars going around a track in a circle, that the game could devote more memory or GPU to rendering the cars.  So it's not just character models that still look bad in games, it's cars, too.

I think I could get back into Deus Ex: Human Revolution via backward compatibility if the Director's Cut was available for purchase digitally.
