It’s impossible to count the number of disappointed gamers there are worldwide with the early expectations of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console. The applications promised by both manufactures were well executed but the talk of a gaming console created for the hardcore gamer is yet to be defined.
We’ve had the opportunity to re-embark Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, rejoin the Battlefield, camp in COD Ghosts and as Lara Croft Raid the same Tomb. In other words, the variety of Next-Gen gaming has been well at its minimum.
There’s were also a few embarrassing launch titles that released and was nothing more than a shame to represent what should have been known as innovative to the next-gen system. Fighter Within, NBA Live 14, and Pinball Arcade all bombed in sales. Ryse: Son of Rome, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone: Shadow Fall and (due to horrible server issues) Battlefield 4 have had the most returns of all the current games available.
NBA 2K14 on the other hand graphically demonstrated what Next-Gen was meant to be. As a matter of fact, 2K is still running rampant with the crown for how to create the future. But as of March 11th (25th for Xbox 360 and PC), a new IP from a well-established development team will become the perfectionist of an “overall” experience.
With the title still unreleased and gamers only able to jump into the action through the previously launched beta, Titanfall is by far the most anticipated game right now with “Next-Gen” capabilities FINALLY truly being defined!
Respawn Entertainment, thank you for rescuing the gaming community and giving us something to look forward to! Consoles, even with high sales began to feel like standby systems with nothing to offer. Infamous Second Son will get its chance to dazzle PlayStation 4 users soon but can it genuinely stand out like Titanfall already is?
Expect our review to spawn early next month! Believe me when I say this is literally the one game and one reason I’d recommend you to pick up the Xbox One. Worth every penny!
