The new beta trailer confirms a February 14 start to beta.  "Sorry honey, I really need to spend this Valentine's Day with my online gaming friends..."

on the bright side, at least you'll have that couch all warmed up before going to sleep on it.

Buncha good game info in this Polygon article that was news to me.  The burn cards sound interesting, and I didn't realize you could knife enemy AI Spectres to convert them to your side.

Great quick look on Giantbomb.  I am 16 minutes into the 25 minute video and it has been well worth it so far.

The game certainly looks amazing. I haven't seen such ubiquitously positive feedback since... GTA V. Still, not too many games can achieve that.

I'm still unsure about getting TF, but if I do it would be for my new PC rig, which would make it my first multiplayer shooter in forever that I'm not playing on Xbox Live. How much of a culture shock is it going to be? Also, should I be investing in a good headset or am I better off not listening? The last few times I was on XBL playing CoD I found myself just putting the headset down because I was tired of listening to all the crap from my team mates. Any reason to suspect that Titanfall on the PC will bring in a more mature set of players?

And any suggestions on decent PC headsets would be appreciated.

I would get it for pc too but just worried like call of duty will probably get hacked to hell on the pc.

I'm sure it will look better on pc, but between potential matchmaking issues, the ability to 'soft cheat' by lowering settings and the 'real' cheating, I'll definitely be on XB1

Watched the full hour on GB and it looks very nice.

I honestly haven't played a PC shooter that didn't have hackers, and I tend to try most of them.  It's quite possible you're just not seeing the ones that are better at remaining subtle.

You're right, I haven't played any of the recent COD games.  I have played plenty of other shooters, though, and never had my experience ruined by hackers.  I know they are out there, but people talk as if every match in every game is just so full of hackers that can't even play, when that's so far from the truth.

I just saw that the PC version is going to allow the use of controllers with some aim assist thrown in.  I don't envy whoever it was who had to balance the amount of aim assist to give the controllers.  You need just enough to make the controllers viable vs. mouse aimers, but not enough to incite rampaging pitchfork hordes over unfairness.  Sounds like an impossible task, but it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

I've been watching Gamespot's live stream of the beta and it looks like great fun. Can't wait.

One of the best stories I read about was a journalist who had jumped on top of a Titan to "rodeo" it (ie take it down by ripping the hatch off and shooting its guts out). While on top the pilot ejected, which launched both of them up in the air. Mid-air the journalist takes his pistol and shoots the Titan pilot as they're falling back to Earth.  icon_biggrin

Video of Beta Tips & Tricks

And if you want to get really obsessive, this guy has 18 videos of raw gameplay, map and game mode discussion, gun overviews, loadouts, burn cards...  I watched the "Loadouts and more" video to get a preview of what weapons and items will be available in the demo beta.

I don't know if anyone else caught it (think it was in the giantbomb thing) but it looks like magazines are handled a bit more realistically in Titanfall.  It seems most people posting gameplay haven't quite figured this out yet and are still doing COD style reloading.  You carry a lot more magazines in Titanfall and if you reload before a mag is empty, that magazine is put at the back of the line.  I'm really hoping this stays, but I could see them pulling this feature since COD people will likely bitch.

edit: watching the most recent footage, it looks like it no longer keeps those mags, but every reload is a combat reload with a dropped mag.  Makes it even more important to not reload spam.

I had heard something about the game using a more thoughtful magazine reload feature, but I hadn't heard exactly how far they were going with it.  That's awesome.

One of the videos I was watching showed how you can stumble across 'cutscenes' in a match, for lack of a better word.  He was playing a match like normal and stumbled across a Spectre holding two grunts hostage, or something like that.  He managed to save a grunt and backstab the Spectre to make him turn sides.  I think I'm going to love this game.

Beta invites start going out tonight!

From almost every video I've seen, the easiest way to do great early on is to quickly embrace the vertical movement options.  Everyone is so used to playing CoD and every other 2-dimensional shooter they're moving around like their feet can't leave the ground.

I'm very much looking forward to the enhanced parkour kit.  Let's you hang on the wall for extended period.  So you can zip up, camp out and wait for that guy chasing you.  I did this a LOT in an old Q2 mod that had grappling hooks.

So it's a game were you can rocket-pack off of walls and jump into giant robots to fight but has realistic ammo management.

info: Your approximate wait time is 0 minute.

info: You are now ready to chat with Faizi.

Faizi: Thanks for contacting EA Customer Experience, my
name is Faizi. How may I assist you today?
you: I entered a Titanfall Beta code on the xbox.com website
and was told it was successfully added to my account. However I can't find any way to download the game on to the
xbox one itself. It's not in my 'my games and apps' like it should be.

you: I've restarted teh xbox one several times to no avail

Faizi: Hi, actually the code needs to be redeemed on Xbox
live market place but not on the website.
Faizi: Let me check what can be done to resolve it.

Faizi: May I have your gamertag and the code so that I can
check it for you?
you: It told me it was successful

you: I don't have the code anymore, I cut and pasted from
the developer stream to beat others to it, so it got entered, but I have no hard copy. It did give me the successful popup
on xbox.com though and said I now have access to Titanfall Beta

you: gamertag is HArkonis

you: Harkonis

Faizi: You must have been sent an email with the code by our
team, right?
you: no, that's not how it works

you: the dev is pasting the codes directly into stream chat

you: and whoever enters it fastest gets it

Faizi: Its not like that, we need to register for beta here
http://www.titanfall.com/beta
you: I haven't received the code for signing up on the
website yet, this is separate
Faizi: After registering for beta, players will be placed into a
draw to receive a Closed Beta Key/
you: you are misunderstanding

you: this is completely separate from that and I redeemed a
key directly from the devs
you: he's streaming here http://www.twitch.tv/redko5#

you: right now and is giving out codes

you: this is not connected to the registration to get a key

you: can't you just se ethat I redeemed it and reactivate it?

you: must be a flag on the account since it said successful

Faizi: Well, as per our information we need to register there,
there is no information about other promotions.
Faizi: I am sorry but without verifying the email which is sent
to players by dev team we are unable to do anything.
you: why is it so hard for you to understand what I'm saying?

you: It shouldn't matter where the key came from

you: it's a legit key, it was entered, and I didn't get the
product
Faizi: There is only one way to get beta key and that is by
registering for it on the official website. Dev team isn't giving codes anywhere else at the moment.

you: that is 100% incorrect

you: Respawn devs have given out dozens through twitter

Faizi: If its so, we would be informed about it and then we
would be contacting you back and help you out with the code.

you: and they are also giving them out on radio programs all
night
you: you are poorly informed then

you: https://twitter.com/slaypiece

you: https://twitter.com/VinceZampella

you: https://twitter.com/DKo5

you: that last one is the dev that gave me the code

you: they have been posting them all night

Faizi: I am sorry but we are unable to do anything with
because we receive code only for registering there on the official website.

Faizi: Thanks for contacting EA.

Faizi: If you need assistance with anything else, please feel
free to contact us again.
Faizi: Have a good one.

Faizi: Bye, take care.

you: This is bullshit, and I will be sharing this transcript with
the developers on twitter
