Downloaded it, played it for like 6 hours... just to give it a fair chance...

Waiting times are just nuts, match making is non-exsistant... they could call the game "Titan Stall"

No strategy to the game what so ever. Its completely engineered to keep teenagers occupied. Also Hacks already available and widely used, its pretty obvious, you'll see if you play it, one person will have like 50 kills and 1 or 2 deaths, and the next best player on the team will have 8 player kills, 3 titan kills and like 20 grunt kills... which is really good for a normal player...

If you die, there is no punishment at all, you respawn in 3 seconds or less, to a location on the map which is right in the middle of battle. So there isn't even a position penalty. The same thing for the other guys, they can spawn just about anywhere.

getting a titan is no big deal really its just a bullet magnet... If you get really good you can last a good while in it, even most of the match if your team is working together... however there is little reward for keeping it long periods, you might get a recharge shield power up.

The sooner you lose your titan, the sooner you get another one... so its pretty silly. And some how killing the enemy means your titan is ready sooner...

All in all its really just a bunch of pretty fireworks with no real reason or rhyme.

And your participation on the battlefield, even as a hacker killing everyone, can have little effect on the outcome of the overall game. Just like planet side 2.

Just respawn and mow down the lemmings, and keep doing it till your brain melts.

I downloaded it in 3 hours and played it for maybe 3 hours total. It's a fun game but not very sustainable to me. I had fun with it but a weekend-worth of playing it was plenty for me.

Just downloaded titanfall yesterday. 35gigs is just the audio....

Looks like everyone is starting to follow the uncompressed audio trend.

wolfenstein was 50+ gigs too

Waited hours to download and play! Traning area went fine, then the errors started pouring in. C++ crash, "Can not connect to server", oh brother, never even played and deleted right off my SSD. Come to realize later, the writes amount on my Evo exploded higher than a bald eagle, what a waste. Just glad i didnt purchase it at release or ever!

Luckly, Steam is having their summer sale so i picked up a copy of Max Payne 3. What a pain it was to get it started! Forced to create a Social Club account which the ingame setup does not i form you that you need one capital letter in your passWord, how retarded. I figuerd this out by going to Rockstar website and attempting to sign up there. When the password came back invalid, the message to use a cap letter comes up which does not occur i the game, FAIL!

Just another way to get my sorry ass kicked by BOTH shooters and giant robots. I am just a way for others to increase their kill count in a hurry. No thanks, I have been humiliated enough in PvP in WoW to know my limitations.

Probably some of the most fun I've had in a while!

If you haven't played this game then you're missing out!

...and this coming from a long time Battlefield (2, 2142, heroes, 3, BC2, 4) player that does not play CoD. If you're limiting yourself from playing due to your "disdain" for CoD then you're really doing yourself a disservice as this game isn't CoD w/ robots.

Just writing about it makes me want to play it right now.
... I gotta go.

IF I was actually interested in this game, which I'm not, the download alone on my connection would take the entire weekend uninterrupted, if not longer. Complete waste, unless you have a smoking fast connection without a data cap.

IDK your DL speed, so yes, your DL might take the weekend - but your timer doesn't begin until you actually start playing.

So unless a data cap is an issue, I see no reason to not give it a whirl.

Overpriced console port trash. Don't waste your bandwidth.

Thanks for saving me the headache with your incredibly insightful comment.

..Oh wait, your comment was worthless. Downloading now.

Need a rating system for posts here. Or at least a "like" button...

Wow, that's messed up. I had the above post but with "Still" as the first word and was tagged as SPAM. Someone friggin' explain that one to me.

If not for MMO's and obscure indie titles, the PC wouldn't have many games to play if it weren't for ported titles from consoles.

That download though....
