We have been thoroughly enjoying the Titanfall Beta. Well, all of us except Gavin who has been suffering with lack of real internet thanks to his line being dirty - I don't want to know what he uses the internet for that has made his physical line that dirty. We were getting sad that the end was nigh, but now the end is less nigh as the beta has been extended.
It's the 1960s: Cold War is in full swing, aliens have crashed in Roswell, and you're a Clint Eastwood look-and-sound-alike. What could be better? This new XCOM is designed to explain and reignite the franchise. It is very different in its gameplay, and offers players deeper understanding of the XCOM origins. The Bureau takes place in the 60s, something that was hammered home throughout the evening I spent getting hands-on experience with the game, and it will have permadeath.
It's not innovative in its game play, but my hour of pew pew slash slash just simply wasn't long enough. I enjoyed every moment that I got to spend with Deadpool; It felt like real quality time with 'the merc with a mouth'.
