So the beta for Titanfall came and went, and it seems that the whole gaming world is actively praising the game for what it has set out to do. Read on to see Humor Tumor's thoughts on the game, and his expectations.
Titanfall, the upcoming multiplayer shooter from Respawn Entertainment is one of the highly anticipated Xbox One and PC games of the 2014 year. I had my share of skepticism, as the people behind it are the people who brought us Call of Duty, and the gameplay videos for it looked a lot like the same old stuff.
With mechs of course.

The gun play itself is fairly ok, I would rate it up there with CoD in the sense all the guns feel similar (ie less recoil, laser beam accuracy). It is a twitch shooter, so leniency with the guns is a must, gun play that was too difficult would detract from the real point of playing as a pilot. Which is all about movement, positioning, and proper use of your Titan.

The game itself plays very well. It's smooth, fast, and very much about making you feel like a super soldier. It's parkour/jump jet mechanic gives it a unique feel, and opens up a lot of fun ways to play the game. Sure, it may feel a little like Call of Duty. But at the end of the day it's a still a very fun game.
Hope it doesn't disappoint in the end though.
Long gone, but not forgotten. Humor Tumor has risen again.
