    Just curious to know what interest is like for Titanfall on the PC platform? Most of the discussion seems to be on the XBOX One sub-forum. I'm leaning towards getting it at release, but if I can get in the beta it would help give me first hand experience and a better foundation to make a decision. I'm wondering why it is listed as 44.99 for the standard edition on Origin when retail has it at 34.99. That is absurd! I also have slight concerns as to how stable the servers will be. We've all seen problems arise at release for some big titles. Will be interesting though, I'm looking forward to it. Perhaps it would be cool to get a WPCentral group set up ;)

    I'm interested in anything that interests me on PC. (newest console is a Gamecube)

    but then again the most powerful piece of gaming hardware is the Venue 8 Pro, so my PC gaming dreams are a bit hindered.

    Especially since I really enjoy Planetside 2.

    Yeah also signed up for the PC beta. Most probably quite a lot of demand, so I'm not holding my breath. Would be awesome to get in.

    Oh wow, I'm so looking forward to playing this game on PC, as it will be the first time a PC game will look truly next - gen in my opinion.

    My wallet will be taking the beating yet again.

    It can go to hell. The sad fact is, this is an EA title. I haven't purchased an EA retail title since Rock Band 2 (NBA Jam being the one game I got, and it is on my 920). I wanted to let the beta convince me otherwise, but since it requires Origin to sign up for the beta, I won't be doing that (not making an Origin account to not get into a beta). There's always a chance it convinces me otherwise, but as it stands right now, pass. MAYBE they'll do it like Battlefield 4, and they'll include it with the Radeon cards later. That'd convince me...if it came free with my next video card.

    Fair enough. EA has messed up quite a lot over time. Sim City debacle, BF3 and 4 being a mess at release, a lot of their mobile offerings and F2P models leave a lot to be desired etc. I like that they are starting to introduce a refund policy and I feel like their support system is miles beyond what Steam offers. I hope to see them make more steps in the right direction, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I was hoping titanfall would come to steam also - i have everything in steam!!!

    I think i will wait. Though my hands are itching to get to grips with the witcher 3! I've got an updated pc rearing to go to town on that! This looks like a good year for pc gaming.

    I decided to preorder Titanfall. I saw Zavvi had it for 32.98 but they also have 10% off while it is in top 10 most wanted. I also had some reward points so I spent them too, so total came at 28.60. Not bad.

    Also waiting for Witcher 3. Can't wait to see how the story ends, plus that open world looks outstanding

    So, Titanfall beta ends on 2/18. I'm not even sure I'll have a chance to try it before then. Kind of sad, now...

    I think they might extend the beta for a bit longer: https://twitter.com/VinceZampella/st...62165132984320

    They released some codes for PC on twitter but I missed out. They may be considering to open it up on PC too. We'll see.

    First and foremost, want to say thanks to the forum member for hooking me up with a key ;) Another reason I love this community!

    Alright, the PC version is surprisingly well fleshed out. It runs very well on Insane and the options are, for the most part, accessible and customizable. Full customizability of the key and mouse bindings are nice to see. Graphically, the game is very well presented, with a nice aesthetic and sounds, from the weapons and titans, to the grunts shouting out, it all adds to an immersive experience.

    The gameplay is fast. It took me a while to get used to it to the point where early on I felt I was being left behind and not contributing. The free-running and jump packs really add a dynamic feel to the infantry game; while the titans add scale to the battlefield. The titan-on-titan action can get pretty insane and intense. The game is just fun, to the point where you want to hop on and are like "just one more game."

    A few criticisms are that I feel some games can be over very quickly. Particularly if teams are stacked. It's a case of the rich get richer. The AI units also need to be made a bit smarter. I've seen some just chilling in the open, and even a battle of AIs in the same room shooting and missing each other. It's like a scene out of the Naked Gun. They need a bit of tweaking, but they serve their purpose for the most part.

    Initial impressions are good though. It's a fun game with potential. Looking forward to seeing the other titans, weapons and maps.

    Nice little mini review. Can't wait till the game launches.

    Just spotted this thread. I would absolutely love to have a go on Titanfall PC Beta, but haven't managed to get a key yet. I've done research on it and its fast pace and tactical gameplay really seem to be something that's fun and just works. I'm a bit concerned that there isn't a lot more to this game than we see in the beta but I'm itching to make a WPC Gang and get playing!

    There is a pretty solid rumor that there will be 14 maps and like 6 game modes in the full game, as well as like double the weapons, triple the titans and several more perks too.

    But you are right that the basic idea doesn't change as is usually the case with shooters, but actual content wise there's plenty more.

    I think Titanfall (on both PC and One) is easily one of the best games I've played the last decade. It still surprises me daily how just rock solid the game is.. at this day and age it's very rare :P

    You can get the game pretty cheap digitally from places like CJS CD Keys or equivalents, it's cheap enough for me to encourage anyone even mildly interested to give it a try, unless you are somehow on an extremely strict budget.

    I've been playing the Titanfall beta these last days quite a lot. Although the gameplay is solid I found that the 2 maps that are in the beta became quite boring. But that might just be because I played these maps too much. The servers (West Europe) were very stable during the beta, at least I had only once a short connection issue during the game but gameplay resumed quickly after that. I'm more worried about how much EA will push for DLCs in the future. I hope Titanfall will not become like Battlefield were the purchases of DLCs is pretty much mandatory. I'm looking for a good shooter to replace Battlefield 3 and I think it might be this game.

    The game is definitely an adrenaline rush. There are moments where I'm like "how did that guy not die??" when he turns and kills me but I don't get as frustrated as I used to in BF3 or CoD:MW2. I find this game just seems to have a fun factor to it. I mean yesterday, there was one moment I jumped out a 2nd storey window just to shoot up a guy jumping into the 1st storey window mid-air. Then moments later you can be in a face-to-face duel with a titan. Not many games that can have moments like that. Just a mindless shooter to enjoy I guess. I kind of look at it like TF2. If anyone here gets it on PC, it would definitely be cool to get a group going. Help carry me to victory ;)

    I also have concerns about the DLC that will probably come out. No doubt EA are doing their happy dance in preparation. I guess I'll just play what I can and enjoy the base game as is. I never bought into BF3's DLC but still had a decent time with that game.

    Yeah but I'm a bit worried how long I can enjoy the base game of Titanfall. I had the limited edition of BF3 (comes already with 1 DLC) and I enjoyed it a lot, but if I want to play it now I really have to buy the other DLCs because there are just not enough servers to play on with just 1 DLC. I really hope that EA won't ruin Titanfall like that were I buy the game for ~50 euros and pretty much have to buy all the DLCs for another ~80 euros to be able to keep playing. And 1 month after they release the last DLC they announce Titanfall 2..

    Zampella said on his Twitter that it's just 3 Titans total.
