I just heard on Twitch that the game is a 50gb install.  icon_eek Wowzers... Must definitely gonna have to get a second hard drive before getting this.

It's a 50GB download.  The install is probably bigger Tongue

Respawn (well, Vince) has commented that the actual download IS 20gb, and that the total install is 50ish.  It seems it reserves the space on the hdd and does some unpacking on the fly.  The origin data rate is including uncompressed data transfer rate, which is how it goes over some people's speed caps.

It kinda IS a case of 'better deal but you're too stupid to realize it'.  A lot of people don't make that connection that you keep the game forever.

Getting Titanfall digitally on XB1, and Dark Souls 2 for 360

we also already discussed all three titan types earlier in the thread.  typical romy, ignore the whole thread but come post that you are playing early.  icon_twisted

Spider sense doesn't let you hear enemies, it play a sound when they are nearby.  It was in the beta.  Only 6 cards weren't as far as I know.

There are titan skins?  thought they had said that wouldn't be a thing.

It did, but I think it's not there any more because it's on by default.  Also if you have energy savings on you can NOT use 'Xbox turn on' because the system actually turns off when you turn it off instead of suspending to await downloads and voice commands.

What settings do you run with in that regard?

they are slowly getting better, but the suspend and voice on function still can cause some issues with games due to the way it is not releasing memory.  So many of the glitches with the XB1 have the 'turn it off and back on' solution and this is avoided by just turning it on manually when I want it.  The boot-up is quite a bit slower, but I just turn it on then read the web for a bit.

It was definitely a beta feature and definitely was shitty. Maybe they think its better with the new update?

I don't believe it changes the Xbox On functionality... I think its specific to game quick starts.

The description for Energy Saving Mode vs. Quick Start says that Quick Start enables update downloads, XBox On, and turning on your TV box.  Maybe someone who has it on Energy Save can comment on whether you can turn it on with voice?

I don't think that was the beta feature... it was something to do with game suspending.

Game suspending is a checkbox you can check or uncheck if you have Instant On enabled.  I could have sworn it said Beta next to it in the past.

It did, but I think it's not there any more because it's on by default.  Also if you have energy savings on you can NOT use 'Xbox turn on' because the system actually turns off when you turn it off instead of suspending to await downloads and voice commands.

Other than the Titan and its weapons, what part of the game defies 8-bit capabilities?

Quote from: Harkonis on March 05, 2014, 10:05:16 PM

The graphics aren't 32 bit, they are in the style of vector graphics, which the original asteroids had.  

These responses puzzle me. Do the two of you know what 8-bit actually means? It represents the color depth available for use in the graphics. Common usage of the word also implies low resolutions with visible pixels (not just square blocks. Once such blocks start rotating or scaling on the screen, you're looking at someone who doesn't understand how low resolution works. This is also a typical pitfall), though that's not strictly necessary. The game presented on that site has fancy color and transparency effects, including subtle glow and smooth fades to black. They have been done with 32-bit capabilities in mind. The resolution is also much higher than any 8-bit machine used. There's nothing left to associate it with 8-bit except memories of the original games themselves. The answer to the question: "what part of the game defies 8-bit capabilities?" is: "every single part, without exception."

Vector graphics have nothing to do with 8, 16 or 32 bit graphics. Don't confuse terms by mixing that into the picture.

they aren't talking about 8-bit color depth, they are talking about 8-bit processor, this is why NES games were called 8-bit games, not because of the color palette. 

It really sounds like you're being pedantic just to be a dick, which makes sense because this is a MS associated thread.

that is true, but it still seems like when you count the 60 seconds between rounds I'd have to be getting a steady 600-700 in gvg to counter it.  I'lll crunch some numbers slywink

100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Xbox One] Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on: March 05, 2014, 08:11:32 PM
consistency is also part of the problem for me.  In GvG I can get from 300-700 cpm, in TvM it's pretty much 450-600 and the matches are very quick. (a bit too quick really, cod matches are 6-8 on average with the occasional 10 minute to time, these are 3-5 minutes always)

there is a limited time achievement to play a game in the 'mixed mode playlist' yet there isn't one in the game.. yay!?

Mixed mode was in there last night, as well as two new team-specific 20,000 coin card packs.

I know you said your CPM was better in TDM, but I seem to usually get 500-600 in G&G unless my team just completely flops on the first checkpoint.

even as a plant?  my cpm is ok as a zombie in that mode IF I use consumable zombie spam or manage to be the one who activates a teleporter.  Otherwise it's pretty low compared to TvM.

Didn't Respawn say there'd be no season pass?  Or was that just one of those vague "we have no plans to share at this time" things?

they always planned on DLC, and they planned on a season pass so it's cheaper.  They don't plan on any microtransations.  So no burn card purchases and (sadly for me) no skins.  We'll likely get maps though.

I think the confusion is that EA used to have that online pass where without it you couldn't play online at all.  Thankfully they phased that out.

I was excited about playing this again, until I had tons of rubberbanding and got disconnected from the servers a couple times yesterday.  Nothing worse than almost fully exploring an outdoor area just to get disconnected and have none of the map uncovered anymore.  Except to have it happen twice.

Back on the shelf for you, shitty online game I just want to play by myself.

that very much would probably be your connection or system.  Even on crap wifi on my gf's crap laptop it works decently.  On my main system it's smooth as butter.

If you have the update preview installed, go to system settings and choose 'update controller' and follow the prompts.  This is the firmware fix for controllers and won't be able to be automatically done otherwise.  Bet a lot of people will miss this.

I do really enjoy a good GvG mode, it's so much more tense than the TvM.  However, a bad team ruins GvG much more than TvM.  On top of that, a good run on GvG provides far less CPM than an ok run at TvM.  Since CPM is so important at this phase of the game, I find myself in the less stressful TvM much more often.

CPM is the new KD of PVZ

Still don't understand the need of people who only own the PS4 to dick wave every time someone mentions anything that could detract from-- in their mind -- the honor of the mighty PS4.

Titanfall is EXCLUSIVE on the Xbox One among consoles.   

The 360 says Hi. Maybe next time.

technically the 360 version might not even be the same game in the end.  no idea the differences since a different studio is making it
