Electronic Arts is acquiring Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Titanfall. Now the clock is ticking, folks. Let’s see how long it takes the Behemoth to suck all the marrow out of this recently purchased studio. Let’s see how long before its carcass can be thrown onto the heap alongside the shit-soaked ruins of BioWare and the desiccated husk of Visceral Games.
You know in Mean Girls when that one character is upbraiding the other character (imdb.com, search, Mean Girls, naw, too much effort) about attempting to make “Fetch” happen? Yeah, that is sort of my attitude towards VR gaming. Can we just stop trying to make people care? No? It’s going to happen anyways? Gotcha. Then, uh, okay. Hey! Neat! Respawn is teaming-up with Oculus to make a VR game!
Titanfall 2‘s campaign was an enjoyable, tight, well-crafted affair. Not many of you slugs know that, because relatively speaking, not many of you slugs purchased the title. No worry, though! You’ll have time to fucking repent (or not, listen, there’s a million games out there) when the next installment drops.
Emphasis on quick, I guess.
I really fucking enjoyed Titanfall. The problem was that it was Xbox exclusive, and I didn’t have anyone to play with. Or a single-player campaign to waste my time in. The sequel is addressing both of those problems of mine.
Laser Swords! Mechs! Titanfall 2! I’ll buy it.
I enjoyed me some Titanfall. By myself, because it was Microsoft-exclusive, and all my friends have PlayStations. I may have enjoyed it more if it had a single-player campaign to run through, or if it was multi-platform. Well. If this news holds up, both of my prior complaints shall be null and void when the sequel is released.
Gasp! Egads! Shazam? An Electronic Arts CFO Czar has intimated that a Titanfall sequel will “probably” happen. It will “probably” be multi-platform, too. Hard to say. Wink wink.
Xbox is rolling out a fucking panoply of original TV content starting in June. Wee?I mean, I guess this is a good thing. ‘Cause outside of Titanfall, I don’t really have a fucking reason to use my XB1 these days. Here’s hoping the initiative is the fucking tits.
I’m digging this console war. PS4 versus XB1 versus my wallet versus Godzilla versus Jizz-Covered Parking Lot Wanderers. It’s the greatest battle of the generation. And so while PS4 is outselling XB1 at the moment, both are selling pretty fucking well.
