Titanfall (Source Engine)

24 posts in this topic

It is highly customized Source but it is still impressive to be using to be using a 9 year engine with that level of detail. Unreal Engine 3 is also 9 years old as well and it's still used in todays games like Batman AO and Bioshock Infinite.

Just about nothing in it is BSP brush, they are using Source because of its native familiarity to Quake, which is what IWTech engine was based on as well.

My friend Steve is a lead programmer at Respawn, he's told me a little about what they've made, it's a very heavily modified Source engine.

Isn't it ValVe's Source 2 with heavy modifications to suit them?

Ofcourse with engine access like they have you can turn the simplest of engines into the marvels you want to. Look up OverDose on Moddb. That one is on an old engine and theyve made it pretty dam epic.

I really hope Titanfall adds something to the FPS genre that is currently being shit on by bad written/played campaign with strict linear campaigns with more forced quicktime events "Press X to NOT DIE!" Thank god I didnt buy Shit of Booty: Gobbles and SameField 4. I might actually buy Titanfall. Hope they get a great demo showcase too. I have sort of faith in them because theyre the barebones that IW was, now IW is just a shell and Respawn is their integrety. Where the great CoD 4 lies.

No, it's just the same branch of source that Portal2 is on. Just so modified I doubt you'll be able to tell.

Someone could point me in the right direction, but as far as I remember, the company is made from ex-COD developers. I can see a lot of similarities in the gameplay.

As maxx said, since a lot of them were used to a quake like engine (Call of Duty's proprietary engine is based of the one used for quake 4?), they shopped around for a engine that was based of it. Source fit that requirement, but was changed as they saw fit. I wouldn't be surprised if they threw out or minimized the core BSP system (somehow with limited budget and time?). It's not a nice system to work with.

As for the Source 2 comment, the current one you can license is the Portal 2.. Or so people say..

Seem to remember it was some comment about it being on Source 2 but eh.

If you have engine access then just about any engine would probably be cool if you can mod it as you see fit.

OverDose is proof of this (Running on iD Tech 2).

And yes, they are the ex-IW employee who worked on the first CoDs so I really hope they can capture the CoD 4 type feel and not try to overcome CoD with spectacle.

No matter BF4s graphics or CoDs newest title. They have both become littered with spectacle creeps and extremely narrow SP FOV.

I'd say BSP and specifically constructive solid geomentry with hammer editor is a nice system, its just pushed too far its not the right system for that kinda of game.

As someone who is completely uninterested by (and sucks at) First Person Shooter Multiplayers, I was on the train of thought that it was COD with robots, a friend gave me a spare code for the beta a few weeks ago. And despite it pretty much just being COD with mechs, it was pretty damn good. The fact that everything is as overpowered as it is week was something I enjoyed, yeah you can see some robro stomping people to death but then you jump on his back and scratch at it into submission...like my cat is now. Also , liked the inclusion of bots walking around. They add little to no threat to the overall battle (that still comes from the dudebros drop kicking you and the giant bots stomping you) and only serve to lower your titan call time. But it is nice to actually get a rack of kills in a game without some 11 year old stabbing you in the back every step.

Then the Titans, I think the price tag alone covers the sound design for when they drop onto the battlefield.

So yeah, I was wrong. The Beta cured me, however since no 360 gameplay has arisen, and I don't want to be £50 for a multiplayer only game on the XB1 then I would most likely get it for PC. But like EVERY PC game I have ever bought in the history of forever, I look at it and go "Eh, it'll be cheaper in a few months" So maybe then.

Titanfall= generic FPS COD clone with mechs that has nothing but multiplayer, lacks content, and was overhyped/overrated.

Was it overhyped. Definitely. Is it a bad game, not necessarily. People like to rag on Call of Duty, and I have done it myself. But there's a reason why it sells so well. At the very least it's gameplay is functional and well made, by no means balanced but cetainly at it's core mechanics it does what it's supposed to. Dudes run around and shoot guns, the controls are tight and the combat is relatively fluid. Adding giants robots and free running to the picture, doesn't mix up the formula but it certainly alters it.

And if we're going into the overhype and overrated aspects look back to last years Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite. Regardless of your opinions on the products themselves the only justifiable way they could live up to the hype would be if they came with a solid gold sex doll that resembles Scarlett Johansson but has the voice of Patrick Stewart which constantly dispenses wine and Black Forest Gâteau...

... and it had wings.

Many sites are being jackasses and posting false pages up to 'pre order' the 'PC/PS4/CrappyCableboxOne' versions. I gave up on the hope of it ,but seeing how IV was a shit port, I doubt V with its design will perform all that good either. GTA was good, but after growing up and realizing it's the same piece of shit it was since III and before that, I'm done with the series. Never played The Last of Us nor Bioshock Infinite. Both those are crap anyways. Honestly nothing good is coming onto the market anymore. Just clones of other products that have been out since the 80's/early 90's. Graphics are the only thing ever changing and what 'gamers' flip out about, no one seems to care about gameplay. But if they do, it's the very small group. Another COD, another TES, another Mario Kart, another Zelda, another Pacman. Nothing new.

Golden sex doll? Honestly I rather put my groin into a blender on low and feel every millisecond of pain as the pointless flesh it torn apart from my body.

Must be a old timer joke.

Wow. We need to have like a moaner of the week awards, I thought I was a damn shoe-in. But now there's some serious competition. Perhaps it's your outlook, I often consider most things shit (British National Passtime) until they prove me wrong...But I always try and give everything a chance (within reason)

Even crappy games or films that I know I would hate, there are a huge amount of things that I love that previously I would never have glanced or I didn't even try them.

I love being proved wrong about a game, series, book or film. Cos it adds something else to the list of things I enjoy, who in their right mind wants to NOT enjoy something? What kinda shit is that.
