It blows up. I have had so much fun with Marked for Death. That is all I was playing for awhile.

I thought that the Spitfire was rotten - the G2A4 is the devils creation.

I'm looking for any tips on how to use this weapon successfully. I play a lot of Hardpoint, which means a good amount of fighting is CQB. My effectiveness in being able to attack points and defend them has dropped significantly since trying to use this thing...ugh!

I hate this weapon. I just use it to get the amped up version in the cards and use those to help. It seems like a three shot kill without the card but only a two shot kill with the amped weapon card. I only need 20 more pilot kills to get to 75 and about the same to get the if it moves to 200.

I never argue with fools cause from a distance you canÂt tell who is who....

It's brutal. The kick and scopes make it somewhat inaccurate and not useful long range, and it's to slow for close quarters. For mid range pretty much any gun will beat it. Even with match trigger, the recoil makes it tough to hit the three shots, especially when moving and strafing.

I'm making progress, but it's tough. I've started switching to my side arm whenever I'm in a tight hardpoint. The G2A4 is simply useless close range.

Bit the bullet, and got TF while the digital download is on sale. Is there an advantage to playing through the 'campaign' before jumping into the MP hoppers? I thought I remembered someone mentioning that you can't choose what mission you want to play any more.

Also, this will be my first MP game for the One; is the party system similar to the 360? Just invite a friend to the game & party? Or is there a trick to it?

I don't even see the campaign options anymore. Maybe it'll be there if you haven't completed it. There is no real advantage, it's really just multiplayer matches with some added dialogue. That's really it. A little extra cutscene action before the match but nothing to write home about.

Same invite system as 360, now. You'll want to meet up in a lobby first although I've found that if you're in a game and someone joins your party and then tries to join your game they'll put them on your team if a space is open.

25 is a great deal for the game. I know a lot of people say it has no legs, and is disappointing, but I don't understand that statement. I guess people would be happier bashing their head against a rock, as long as it has COD printed on it.

Parties are still a bit messed up compared to what you have been used to on the 360. Communication is hit or miss sometimes. You may jump in to a party with a buddy, and he may not hear you, or you may not hear him. The only resolution seems to be a hard re-set. A bit aggravating, after the 360 game chat working so flawlessly for years.

Campaign is there, it's just not in a separate category anymore. When you're in the MP lobby, you can scroll down on the left and see "Campaign". The little descriptor states that it is in constant rotation. Which is going to make it much harder to get the achievement now. I also believe that they have dumped some different regions in to the MP servers. I am getting longer ping time than I used to. They have also taken out a big chunk of the dialog between matches, and I believe messed up the "experience" that they created.

I took the plunge, traded my disc into Best Buy for $24. Purchased the digital for $25. More than happy with that outcome.
Since I signed up for EA access, I traded FIFA14 in as well. Got $23 for that one.

Question: I've got about 150 hours in this game (almost a Gen 10 pilot) and I've never had significant server issues until last weekend. Lately when I play I only have one or two (of five) "signal strength/connections bars" (forgive me for not knowing the technical term) which makes the game literally unplayable - SEVERE jutter and such. It's also been happening a bit, albeit less so, with Ghosts. Is there something I can do on my end to fix this or is a server issue? Most often I'm the one with few bars while the rest of the lobby has four or five bars. Thoughts?

I suspect they might be starting to consolidate some locales as the game phases out of popularity a little, leading to worse ping/lag. That's entirely speculation, but I've been reading a bunch of people saying similar, that lag is starting to be a factor.

Thanks. And to be clear, I'm not saying that there's a little bit of lag (like I shoot someone and he should have died but I died instead). I'm saying that, for example, I press up to move forward on the thumbstick and it's a full four seconds before my player does so. Really, really, really, really bad and long input lag. It's literally unplayable. Then, a few minutes later I'll get four bars and everything is cool. It's very frustrating because I'm about two hours away from reaching my initial goal of a Gen 10 pilot!

On the east coast as well. No issues last night but there didn't seem to be too many people on around 11. Played a few games with less than 6 team mates.

After just shy of 136 hours I have finally become a Gen 10 pilot. This is the best online multiplayer shooter I've played with COD4 in a close second. Kudos, Respawn

Update 6 adds Marked for Death to the permanent list, and adds a 8v8 no titans/no AI mode among other things:

Just in case this happens to anyone else:
I'm in the preview program (not sure if that makes any difference).
Last night I tried to start Titanfall. Press the 'A' button to connect to the servers and it kept failing.
Rebooted (held down power button for 20 seconds)
Started the game.
It then found the update and loaded it.
All went smoothly after that.

It may have something to do with Titanfall still running from the day before. I have the X1 set to remember the game I'm playing. I wonder if I closed it down and restarted it, if that would have cured the issue. Too late for me to try now.

The 8 v 8 pilot is even worse than Marked for Death. It's everything wrong with COD except for the kill streaks.

I'm interested to play it, but since I'm still slogging out on Gen 7 (Fresh Squeezed....ugh), there is no reason for me to give that gameplay a shot. I have to admit an 8v8 pilot only TDM seems like it wouldn't work, but I can't knock it til I try it!

I tried the 8 on 8 and it was "ok". Just seems a bit naked. I know it's supposed to be Titan-less but with no grunts either just seemed extremely naked. Your whole approach to the game changes as it seems you look at the maps differently. No more having to look way down the field to see if your about to run into tons of walking hurt. Had a small scale COD feel to it but it was fun enough.

Now that you can record without a Kinect:

Sonofa! How do I just embed the video instead of linking? I've tried half a dozen different ways.

You have summed up my feelings perfectly in this statement...
I had a hard time putting my finger on the problem during the Destiny Beta, but it was to the point, that I made the conscious decision to NOT purchase Destiny. (at this time, at any rate...maybe on sale or bargain)

I hear you guys as a Titanfall fan myself. However with Destiny I pretty much mentally cataloged this as an Oblivion experience for me. Having not played the Beta I had no real first hand knowledge of the game. After getting some marathon hours in yesterday with a few friends I have to say it's really fun. I had one idea of what the game was going to be like but that couldn't have been more wrong. lol.

Would have bought the game after playing yesterday, YES. Would have I bought the Guardian Edition like I did, probably NO. Simply because there is no "real" savings there and when it comes time to play the added content I have to wonder if I'll be interested in it by then. As I progress through the main story I have to say I'm probably leaning to be interested all the way through to the added content but who knows if that will change or not.

But in NO WAY do I see this as a Titanfall sub for me. I'll still be playing Titanfall for sure. My mission in Titanfall is to do everything. All achievements and challenges.

Even once you get a double jump ability as a Hunter in Destiny, it still just doesn't feel right compared to Titanfall. Of course, as a slower game I don't expect it to feel the same either. I mostly prefer Titanfall, but Destiny does have its moments... as long as you're not expecting Titanfall. (That being said, I barely have played the Destiny PvP modes because they are less interesting to me.)

Destiny PvP is easily trumped by Titanfall. But shouldn't it though?
