We are almost ready for Titanfall. Sure, South Africa isn't officially getting it, but that doesn't mean much thanks to the fact that digital downloads are still available. But prepare your PC for the 49GB install - why so big? It's so you can hear all the pew pew sounds.
Titanfall is out today in the US, and on Friday everywhere else. Other than South Africa, that is. It is, by all accounts, a pretty exceptional game, evolving the Call of Duty formula and making it fresh and exciting. It’s the Xbox One’s marquee title. it’s killer app. And it runs pretty badly. Stand by for disappointment.
Virtual Reality. Is it the next big thing in gaming? Most within the industry seem to think so. and now, EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson thinks that it could well be – but that doesn’t quite mean that EA”s jumping on the VR bandwagon just yet.
It's official, South Africa is getting shafted when it comes to Titanfall. We can only hope that if and when we eventually get the Xbox One, Microsoft will up their game and bring in local servers, too. For now, though, we will have to do without one of the biggest games of the year, and maybe even more big titles as time goes by. But is it all EA's fault?
I enjoyed Dragon Age II in spite of itself. Yes, I found it disappointing after the exceptional Origins, and the re-used assets made everything seem a tad homogenous. Enemies respawning from the sky made the whole thing feel a but unpolished. It was the overall lack of scope that let it down most. Yet, once you waded through those issues it remained a pretty good RPG. EA and Bioware’s insistence that the next Dragon age will be better is assuring enough – but this location trailer’s what’s got me really excited.
Here’s some worrying news for those excited for EA’s biggest game this year. Apparently, Titanfall has been cancelled in South Africa. That, according to Mweb Gamezone, seems to be the case for digital copies of the game purchased via EA’s Origin digital distributions service.
Standby for Titanfall news drops. Titanfall is out in a few days, and despite the open beta, we know next to nothing about the game. But ask and ye shall receive, as the game just got a brand new info-dump.
Music industry professionals would be so confused by gaming. No, going gold doesn't have the same meaning, but it's still seriously exciting, especially for a game as anticipated as Titanfall.
After playing the beta, I’m pretty damn excited for Titanfall. That public exhibition gave me a taste of the game, and I want more. Especially when it comes to that smart pistol which gives me an edge in competition. There’s a ton more to the game than just my crappy aim and massive mechs though. And one digital sleuth uncovered the various talents that players will take into battle with them.
Digital Distribution - love it or hate it, it's here to stay. I think I'd like it a lot more if the prices were more competitive, and my internet was faster and more stable. Man, I miss my fiber internet from the Netherlands. The NPD has studied American spending habits, showing huge growth in digital, and EA has something to say about it, too.
Titanfall is coming soon. It’s a game that has many people quite excited for it, especially those who’ve played it. You’ll be hard pressed to find anybody who’s actually played the game and isn’t giddy at the thought of playing it again. When it launches, it;s coming to just two platforms; Xbox One and PC. For South Africans, it really means PC is the only option when the game is released. How do the two versions compare?
Games have been struggling at launch lately. Well, any game with online components, that is. Seeing as EA keeps pushing for an always online experience, it makes sense that their games keep failing at launch. However, they apparently don't see it that way.
This isn’t another rant about the abomination that is Dungeon Keeper and its microtransactional hell. No, this is about another of EA’s free-to-play mobile games: Plants vs zombies 2. I loved the first game, when Popcap was still Popcap, but the second one, instead of being a paid product is instead a free-to-play game. Crucially though, one needed to not spend a single cent to play through the entire game, which is how free-to-play games should be. It looks like that’s changing.
