Re: Anyone playing Titanfall on the PC?
Titanfall got more hype than any other game in recent memory, but I don't recall any of it feeling unnatural. I started hearing about it months ago from gaming journalists who played it at trade shows and said it was something special. Then I was impressed by some trailers that appeared to be (and indeed were) comprised completely of gameplay footage. Then their beta testing period did not include an NDA, which meant everyone could share their experiences with the game before it was available for purchase.
It's not like they hid behind some pre-rendered non-gameplay trailers and threw a bunch of money toward advertising. They knew their game was great and did their best to get that word out through hands on demonstrations and gameplay videos.
