So yeah, my bros and I got picked out for the Titanfall beta. Pretty cool if you're gamers like us, shrug-worthy if you're not.

First, an overview, compliments of Wikipedia:
Titanfall is an upcoming first-person shooter video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts as an exclusive for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. In Titanfall, players fight in online multiplayer-only matches set on a war-torn planet as mech-style Titans and their pilots. Its action is fast-paced, including abilities to run on walls and hijack mechs, and extended periods between player deaths. Respawn describes the game as bringing "scale, verticality, and story" to first-person shooter multiplayer gaming, incorporating elements traditionally used in single-player campaigns. The game uses Microsoft's cloud computing services to offload non-player activity to servers and optimize the home computer for graphical performance.

TL;DR: Call of Duty with 15 ft robots.

At any rate, here's what I've taken from the past 4+ hours I've had thus far with the game:

1. Sweet JESUS are the Grunt bots the most useless units I've ever seen in a game. Frelling Redshirts are more competent than these idiots. My God, I ran into a room with TEN of these guys in it, fired a few bursts from my assault rifle, killed every one of them before they could pull off a shot. I get that I'm supposed to be this super Ace Pilot, but is it too much to ask if the non-player enemies are something of a challenge to fight? I mean, DAMN.

2. No changing of the teams between matches. You enter a round as one team -- either the invading IMC forces or the defending MILITIA -- you STAY on that team until you leave, and there's no guarantee that you WILL change teams that way. Which reminds me...

3. I don't know what it is, but there is a VERY skewed win probability between the teams. Seriously, I played as the Militia for over two and a half hours (that translates to roughly 14 matches) I lost ONE match as them. No, seriously, I checked. I can't even find words to express the sheer magnitude of ridiculous that is.

So that's all for today. I'll be back tomorrow to talk about the calls builds and weapons. Till then.

I couldn't help but notice your signature, and it reminded me of this quote:
"The universe is driven by the complex interaction between three ingredients: matter, energy, and enlightened self-interest." - G'Kar (Babylon 5, By Any Means Necessary)

Eh...not quite the same flavor I was thinking of, but close.
