I really should get round to playing this but when I think about playing a game these days, all I can think about it Zelda.

The pilot ejection into the dropship at the end of this vid was quite something!

I'm liking this game. I've spent a bit of time on the SP mode (which seems to be fairly engaging, although a little too platformy at times), but very little on MP. Any suggestions on what MP modes etc to play?

I've not even looked at Grim...'s vid, but I'm predicting it's the GTA guy who ejected from his plane, faceplanted the wing, then got hit by the burning wreckage on the way down.

How did I do?

I am loving this so far.

It is as smooth as Zardoz's heid and the bullets actually seem to have individual effects rather than it just adding to a meter at which point a death animation kicks in. The platforming aspects are so much more enjoyable than I thought they would be and the gunplay feels meaty and doom-like.

I've got this, Breath of the Wild, Forza Horizon 3 and Nex Machina to play at the moment and all of them are *really* good games for entirely different reasons and on three different formats. Modern gaming is great.

So I've just done the "Effect and Cause" level.

Holy shit, that's one of the cleverest things I have seen in a videogame in years and years and years.

The audio logs were amazing!

The "Ultimate Edition" of this is $10 on PSN USA right now, so I bought it. Dunno what you get with the Ultimate Edition, but I was only really interested in the single player anyway, and I am guessing it is multiplayer stuff.

It is MP stuff. Early unlocks of Titans and some guns.

I assumed something like that. The regular edition isn't discounted anyway, so it wouldn't have made a difference.

Hmm. It was indeed very clever. However, I'm finding the single player of this to be 50% an irritating instadeath platformer, and that level just gave it extra ways to be annoying.

It's just tedious though. So much of the game feels like a problem solving platformer instead of a giant robot stompy shooter.

Maybe you’d be better off playing something like Harvest Moon, The SIMS or something more your speed.

Don't get me wrong, most of the on-foot shooty bits were great, and the in-titan bits are amazing (though in my view you unlock the best weapon early on, and have next to no reason to use any others). It just felt like it was desperate for an excuse to make me jump around like a pillock every possible chance it could.

I am keeping an eye on this in Origin and will snag it next time it's on sale.

TBH I really enjoyed the first Titanfall, but it never quite gained any traction with our Saturday night crowd for some reason.

I'll only be buying the sequel for the campaign so don't want to spend too much, nothing will ever topple Battlefield/GTAV from our Saturday night games slot I would imagine.

I'm surprised EA haven't killed off the Titanfall franchise already, although now they've bought Respawn no doubt they'll 'Do a Battlefront 2' on whatever the studio makes next and totally fuck it up.

Yeah the first one was great, although it didn't have a campaign (there was just a short single player tutorial).

Giant robots punching each other in the head, conceptually it's perfect. Or if they're not close enough to punch each other, shooting at other giant robots with huge fucking guns.

That's the ultimate sales pitch, right there.

Disagree. The grapple is good, and it's what I use for Frontier Defence, but the other tacticals are worth looking at and they are generally very well balanced. I particularly like Stim for shotgun/SMG classes and Cloak for Snipers/LMG/ARs with Ranger scopes.

I turned grapple off at the beginning but it’s now in my main load out. I spent a lot of time last night doing cross map grapple slingshots, which is currently an imprecise science.

I done a grapple and jumped on to Cras's Titan and fired grenades at stuff. It was ace. Probably looked totally cool, too.

Try a couple of sessions with Stim or Cloak and see how you like them. Apart from anything else, it forces you to get better at judging wallrunning and double jumps, and then if you go back to grapple you can save its charge for when it makes a bigger difference.
