“Titanfall” Beta Review

Titanfall is the new innovation for first person shooters.

            Titanfall was created by a co-creator of the “Call of Duty” franchise, along with some of the game developers. For a triple A title this game was only developed with a few developers in a new gaming company call “Respond”.  One can tell that the game developers put the best aspects of first person shooting from experiences working on “Call of Duty”.

The game plays fantastic with amazing next gen graphics. The entire game is multiplayer. The beta only includes the basic game types like team death match, domination, and capture the flag. One of the most interesting aspects of the game is the moment of the pilot the player control. The player’s character in the game is called the “Pilot”. The pilot has a standard setup like in call of duty, guns, grenades, perks, etc. The pilot’s movement involves a jet pack which lets the player wall run, and double jump. Going from point A, to titan-and-pilot_0_0_0_2_0point B has never been better. Rushing past the enemy could only just take few seconds with the right creative mind.

The whole point of the game is not about the players though, it is about the Titans.  Titans are giant robots that the pilots can get into at a certain times in the game. The player will have full control over their mech, with counts amounts of ability for the pilot to use. One of the abilities are that the titan can stop the bullets or missiles from the other titan and shoot them back all at once. Begging in a titan certainly makes that pilot have the advantage towards other pilots without titans. When it comes to a 50 foot robot with a full arsenal going against a 6 foot pilot carrying maybe an assault rifle, the outcome is pretty obvious.

Not to say that the pilot can’t take down a titan, the player just has to be smart about it. The pilot is equipped with a weapon to take down a titan, but mainly from a distances. The pilot can also sneak up on a titan, and destroy it from the inside.

The multiplayer is very different from other games. It is very cinematic, and immersive. Playing multiplayer actually feels like it matters, they have it very story driven even if a match only last 5 or 8 minutes. A great feature that they added in their multiplayer is AI players, which are soldiers named grunts that the game is only allowed to control. It makes the game easer to play because the AI players are not that good at the game. That makes the game stand out from “Call of Duty”, cause in “Call of Duty” players knows if their good or not which can make the game frustrating. Were as in “Titanfall” everyone can just have fun.

Matches start the same every time jumping out of an air ship to the multiplayer map, but it ends different for both sides. Depending on if the player wins, or loses in the match, the losing team has to escape to an air ship to transport them off of the match. While the wining team has to destroy the pilots or the transportations ships to stop anyone from leaving from the enemy team.

“Titanfall” comes out March 11th, and you do not want to miss this gem of games. This is the game that starts the year off on triple A titles for next gen consoles.

“Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag” Game Review

  “Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag” is the game that “Assassins Creed 3” should have been. Ubisoft entertainment has out done themselves for this new “Assassins Creed” title. AC4 (Assassins Creed 4) takes place in the world of pirates. Who wouldn’t want to plunder a ship with a crew, and take whatever they want. Not to forget the beautify scenery in the Caribbean while taking command of a ship.

Right in the golden age of pirates’ protagonist Edward Kenway goes on the adventure of a life time doing what he does best, and that is whatever he wants. While playing the game players will experience events recorded in history in the golden age of pirates. Historical figures like Black Beard, and James the Kid appear a counts amount of times playing in Mr. Kenway’s adventure. He stumbles in to problems along his journey were he finds himself-asking the question what is the point of enjoying yourself when it has no long term affect for the future. The story in this game is extremely well written with a memorable protagonist.

The game plays the smoothest out of any of the other Assassins Creed games. Switching between target to target taking out the enemy has never been easier in hand to hand combat. Keeping that in mind it makes the game feel a little repetitive, but that is only one mechanic of the game. Digging deeper inside the game the player will soon realize that there is counts amount of things to do in this open world. Going from playing checkers to harpooning a white whale, and everything in between. That is where the game stand out in its individuality.  AC4 makes the sea look and feel like the real thing. Sailing in calm water can change any second into a thunder storm with wind pushing the ship that Kenway commands from side to side. From that the player have to navigate their ship though the rough sea with water spouts around every corner.

With next gen graphics AC4 is just amazing to just explore the world. Observing the sun in the game could actually hurts someone’s eyes. Viewing a plan empty field AC4 is much more then it could seem. The wind interacts with everything causing the grass, and leafs to move in certain directions or watching a storm in the distances blow the player’s way. It is all of the small details in this video game which makes it stand out.

Over all this is one of the best games of last year to make it to the next gen consoles. It has action, adventure, and drama all in the right places. If you are looking for a good game to start while testing next gen graphics on a new console Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag is the game for you.

The hope I have for Bungie’s Destiny game

Mostly everyone knows that Bungie created the “Halo series”. Currently they have been working on a game called “Destiny” witch like “Halo” is a sci-fi. I’ve seen a lot of videos of Destiny and I got to say it has a lot to live up to. I think it looks beautiful, but at the same time it reminds me of halo. The developers really wrap their heads together to form this idea of a massive multiplayer game. One of the coolest things I notice about the game was how easy it was to join people while playing. Something interesting they did was have classes for the characters people create like stealth, tank, etc. I would prefer to use the tank class because it is harder to take down. The game comes out early next year, and I will probably end up getting it just out of respect from the “Halo” games.

Am I Getting The New Call Of Duty?

I have been playing COD for about five years now. It is kind of a norm to expect a new call of duty every year. I have nothing bad to say about the game, but I do not think that I am going to get it this year. It is kind of getting boring, just because I play it so much. My friend tells me it’s a copy and paste game which means that they copy the last game that was made and added a little more to it. I do not agree with him that much because you can only do so much with a first person shooter.  The people that say they hate the game are dumb because they don’t stop playing it. The game is all around fun, but I just played it too much. That does not mean that I will not get it later, but as of right now I’m not.
