    Massively turned off by the fact that it is multiplayer only :(

    It does, but EA, Origin. I'm reserving judgement until it's out and we see what kind of F2P style obstacles EA puts into it to 'encourage' you to buy all the little subscriptions and micro transactions on top of the already full price game.

    Given how some of BF4's unlocks are turning out I'm not overly hopeful.

    That's the exact reason I'm so excited! Finally a company that is willing to be honest with itself and pour all its energy into what it does best!

    I was skeptical about this game at first, but the more I see of it, the better it gets. Hopefully it doesn't launch with a series of bugs like recent aaa games lol.

    Well i think its a good thing

    I rather a studio put all there efforts into one or the other.

    some members of ZiiP have played this game at game shows and said its basicly going to be the next big MP shooter, nothing but praise for it. Looking forward to titanfall! :)

    youre not wrong, it is 6v6. But IIRC it will be 48 "players" total a match when counting NPC's

    Played it at Gamescom and yes, yes it is.

    It's 6 human-controlled Pilots per team. Add to that the 12 AI-controlled Militia and the up to 6 AI-controlled Titans (Pilots can set their Titans on free-roaming mode) and it's still plenty busy.

    Pilots were worth 300xp when I played it and Militia were worth 50xp. The level was nicely populated and there were only momentary lulls in the action. It really does work as well as they say it does.

    The Militia are there as cannon fodder, nothing more. What they do brilliantly, as one of the designers mentioned as well in an article, is give people who are new to FPS or do not have phenomenal twitch-skills a change to earn their Titan that bit faster.

    Everyone get's a Titan after a certain amount of time, getting kills just makes it available faster. Shooting Pilot after Pilot after Pilot will give a Titanfall in a very short space of time, but dropping Militia like flies will also help. Once you're in a Titan, thing change significantly for you. The dynamics and momentum change. You're no longer teeny and you're also carrying a really big gun... :D

    Hopefully because it isn't as hyped at SimCity and BF4 the release will occur when it's finished this time.

    I think this is as close to a new Quake game i'm going to get. Looking good so far.

    so, This is 6V6 only! its bulked up with AI! how disappointing!

    Dont mind small online player games at all but would of wanted 8v8 or 12v12 at least! and no AI.

    This is the problem with it been a multiplayer story driven. They are using AI to tell the story and direct the flow of the online games...., so making this competitive is out the window.

    I just lost all interest for the game!

    Cs is best at 5v5, less chaos and luck kills and more skill required

    The forced AI is the most annoying thing for me. But 6v6 with the walker mechs is to low, i feel 8v8 would of been ok
