Caleb’s Gaming Corner One of the newest video games on the market, Titanfall was released March 11 for Xbox One and PC Respawn. But, on March 25 Titanfall will be released for Xbox 360. Titanfall is an evolutionary shooter game that takes place in the distant future, where an ongoing war between a group named the “Militia” and another group named the “I.M.C.” is taking place. The game is set on a planet with very similar features of Earth. The planet is called the Frontier. In Titanfall, war rages on land by ground soldiers know as pilots

and vehicular combat. In the new Titanfall, the player gains the speed of a ground trooper with features never seen in the games before. With a “jump pack”, pilots can

concerns would be centered with Titans being too overpowering to be taken down by pilots, the game creators addressed the issue. Respawn now has multiple ways to take down a Titan; a Titan can be

run on walls, double jump in the air, and jump from building to building. The new features also allow players to weave in between buildings with a free running ability, making obtaining an advantage on enemy players almost simple. The Titans are the “stars of the battlefield.” Where most players

taken down by anti-Titan weapons (carried by pilots,) Titan VS. Titan warfare, and the ability for a pilot to jump on the back of a Titan, thus destroying important innner mechanics inside of the Titan. Be careful though, players! When preforming the last respawn move, make sure to jump to safety a short

distance away from the Titan. This technique is called “Rodeo”. In addition to the newest ideas being brought to life in the game, Titanfall has non-player controlled bots programmd into the battlefield of every game. This adds a more enjoyable aspect to the game that doesn’t require you to fight Ttans and other online players. These bots make up to be little to no threat unless approached up close and/or in large groups. Overall, Titanfall receives a 9 out of 10 on my list for its’ graphics, gameplay and balance as a whole.
