Summary: So here's Titanfall, the first title that sprang from the studio created by the Infinity Ward debacle. It represents Respawn Entertainment's first salvo into the industry. A game that Microsoft expects to push a ton of Xbox Ones for the next few months.
Summary: The way Respawn has hunkered down and labored over wall-jumping routes, sight-lines and rooftop cover reminds me a bit of Epic's obsession with symmetry in the 'Gears of War' franchise. They've found what works with the mechanics they've built, so they're just going with it, diving in head first.
