I think I can say that I’m officially disappointed.  More multiplayer.  Oh yay.

If you didn’t see the original Titanfall, it was a lot of this, with a disappointing multiplayer campaign, and barely any story or content to the universe lore. It sold on solid gameplay, with jetpack parkour running and giant mechs with lasers.

And oh look, now we have more of the same. Awesome. Just awesome. [Eye roll]

Oh look, a single player campaign trailer. Maybe they’ve learned their lesson from last time.

Huh. Well, that was interesting. Now, the Gundam-like Titans seem to now be advanced AIs, and a character themselves within the game.

My verdict? Not recommended UNTIL we get a length on the single player campaign.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a multiplayer-focused game (I’ve definitely played and enjoyed my share of those–Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, and Yomi currently, and then there’s old classics like Counterstrike and Unreal Tournament), but I can definitely see folks being disappointed if that’s what they were expecting from Titanfall.

      Well, with Overwatch, and the newly announced Quake Champions, it looks like multiplayer shooter players are going to have a good choice as to what to play.
