I'm not a fan of online multiplayer I prefer single player & coop, so i approached Titanfall with caution, but after playing it for a few hours I was hooked. Very good game indeed, and Respawn are doing the right thing with a cheap (compared to CoD & BF) 19.99 season price to entice gamer's to continue playing..

As for Dark Souls 2, Well, I gave it a go, and the constant deaths, awful graphics, lack of direction, no map, no story,no choice of difficulty level, enemies that respawn in the area you're in after you've saved at a checkpoint / campfire , along with the pvp issues, ridiculous bosses, audio / dialogue that sounds like it was recorded in a toilet or cupboard and the laggy controls & dire hit detection made me give it up.. Give me an ElderScrolls, Fallout, Dragons Age, or Fable title anyday.. :)
