Seriously, rodeoing an enormous mech and taking it down by blowing its brains out never gets old.
Now's a great time to get involved following all of the DLC drops including the Expedition levels. Be sure to check out Jon's review and have a look at our Titanfall hub to see our videos and articles, including Carl heading online with only a joystick for company.

Looking for a cheap console bundle deal? This one might float your boat. ShopTo's eBay outlet are currently selling an Xbox One with Call Of Duty: Ghosts, Titanfall, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Wolfenstein The New Order and a Forza 5 GOTY Download for under £350.
It's a good price, though in fairness, it's worth noting that you can get bigger and better games for your money than Call of Duty Ghosts and Murdered. For example, you can get an Xbox One with four of these games and Battlefield 4 for £325, a saving, or take advantage of an excellent GAME bundle. Browse our console bundle deals to find out how! Thanks to Andrew91 @ HUKD.
Missed out on the earlier Titanfall PC deal that had the game for £6 at Tesco (£5 with code)? Well, Amazon have you covered... sort of. The game is OOS at the moment, but Amazon are taking orders for swift dispatch as soon as stock comes in. Normally, we'd suggest waiting it out, but £6 is an absolute steal for Titanfall, and the game is just as fun and fresh as it was at launch.
In fact, along with Destiny, it's been leading our Game of the Year community voting!
NB. Bear in mind that you'll need to spend over £10 or use Prime for free delivery. Cheers MrManwelo!
Titanfall (PC) can be had for as low as £5 at Tesco right now, but there are stock warnings in play here, so you'll need to be seriously quick!
NB. Use voucher code TD-FRTW to get it at this price. Cheers RedDemonic!
Microsoft have come storming back this winter with some cracking Xbox One console bundle deals, and this five-game stunner from migenie on eBay is the latest in a long line of superb Xbox One deals.
The five games included are Titanfall, Battlefield 4, Forza 5 GOTY, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Cheers ColinB1984!
This is a crazy Xbox One console bundle deal. Asda are basically giving away and Xbox One with Kinect and Titanfall for under £300 because the box is a bit tatty.
Here's the disclaimer from Asda's website: "Damaged Packaging - Please be aware that the product packaging for this item is damaged. Actual product is in original manufacturer's condition." If you can brave a broken box for one of the best console bundle deals around, I'd say go for it. Cheers arthurd123!
If you're an Xbox LIVE Gold subscriber, you can but Titanfall: Deluxe Edition for a tenner right now on the Microsoft Store!
I love that video.
Titanfall is still probably my "pure" FPS of the year, which is to say that it would be the best had Far Cry 4 not just come along and blown me away. Titanfall is even better thanks to the free Frontier Defence pack, and the game is currently down to £7.49 on Origin.

Here's Titanfail II for good measure.
The Xbox One has its first birthday tomorrow, and so we took the chance to cast our eyes back over the first twelve months of Microsoft's latest console to reflect on how it's performed after a rocky release, in a year where there's been a personnel change at the top and the competition has raced ahead to an early sales lead. Has the Xbox One managed to turn things around?
Phil Spencer bared his fangs and proved his mettle this year.
The new head of Xbox inherited a disaster in the making. Don Mattrick had totally sabotaged the Xbox brand, rolling out an insanely expensive media centre with functionality most devices and smart TVs already made obsolete, packing an admittedly excellent peripheral that nobody really wanted, stacked to the gunwhales with microtransactions and controversial features. The Xbox One sold modestly well on the strength of its fanbase, some decent launch titles and Titanfall, but it soon became apparent that the bloated "entertainment system" was a sitting duck as Sony and even Nintendo started pulling ahead. Spencer faced an impossible situation.
There's only one thing you can do in an impossible situation. Triage. Save what you can, then let everything else burn.
What followed was a ruthless, desperate and frankly magnificent campaign of revisions, U-turns and scorched-earth decisions as the new guard dismantled Mattrick's monstrosity into a console that might actually sell. Kinect was thrown under the bus. The RRP was hacked down to undercut the PS4, margins be damned, followed by some ludicrous bundles. Xbox Live Gold was declawed, and permanent free games were rolled out. Firmware updates weren't delivered annually, they were delivered every single month come what may.Click here to read more...
Jon's been telling us for weeks that we should jump back into Titanfall, largely thanks to the hefty recent content drop and the addition of a PvE horde mode of sorts, and we finally Titan'd up for some Game Night shenanigans.
It might just be the crushing disappointment and hollow feeling that Destiny has left me with, but frankly this was an utter blast. Frontier Defense is a cracking (FREE) addition to the delightfully smooth gameplay package, and it's clear that Respawn have really made a concerted effort over the past few months to make the game sparkle. The lobbies and customisation options have been tweaked in all of the right ways, matchmaking actually seems to work (and the countdown timers have been decreased), and Frontier Defense shakes things up in a great way, throwing Suicide Spectres and Arc Titans into the fray.
I have to say, though, that I really, desperately wish I had an Xbox One after this Game Night. Titanfall plays so incredibly well on PC, but really its a game that lends itself completely to the couch-oriented console experience. Still, this was an absolute blast, and I'm pretty sure Carl and I will certainly be joining Jon in dipping into it frequently over the next few weeks.
If COD doesn't blow us away, that is. That now has Titans too.
Titanfall is one of the best games of 2014.
No ifs or buts. On a purely objective and mechanical level, Titanfall's gameplay is impeccable, blowing the multiplayer shooter genre wide open with mobility, verticality, parkour, massive stompy robots and some of the best maps of the decade. It certainly isn't the first FPS to feature mechs and jet packs, but no game has ever managed to make these features so fluid and accessible, allowing anyone to get involved while providing veterans with a near-infinite skill ceiling as their abilities improve.
As such, I've returned to it on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis simply because it's that good.
Unfortunately, however, I lied. There was an "if" and a "but," and it's a doozy, because there's no denying that Titanfall was also wicked skinny for a full-priced game. Limited gametypes and throwaway singleplayer notwithstanding, these days most shooter fans expect comprehensive customisation, deep progression systems, addictive metagame and hefty on-paper value that Titanfall just didn't provide. Coupled with matchmaking issues as the population declined, many players angrily upped sticks and never returned.
Perhaps you were one of them. That's okay. But it's also a shame, since you'll have missed out on a huge amount of major improvements, tweaks and upgrades that bulk up and flesh out Respawn's sensational shooter. Now that Update 8 is live, I'd advise you to give it another shot.Click here to read more...
Titanfall is an utterly superb shooter. Partly it's the robots, partly it's the parkour, but it's also due to the impeccable map design that presents you with enormous, detailed, vertical canvasas with a near-infinite skill ceiling. All three map packs have been superb, and better yet, they'll only cost you six quid so long as you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. Which you obviously are, because this is a multiplayer game.
If you haven't logged on in a while, you've missed quite a bit, including some massive new updates. An article on why Titanfall still deserves your time will be going live in an hour or two. Many thanks to heatlight @ HUKD!

For many, Titanfall was the vanguard of a year of games that didn't live up to their hype. I am not one of those people.
Titanfall has kept me coming back week after week, month after month, because its gameplay is evergreen. I'm not just throwing myself through the grinder for randomised loot or arbitrary metagame levels, rather I'm playing simply because the thrill of snapping necks, dropping mechs and effortlessly traversing an entire map without touching the ground is nigh-on perfect, and worth every minute. The small yet dedicated fanbase clearly feels the same, enjoying the fact that the skill ceiling is as high as the lofty maps themselves.
So the third and final map pack is Respawn's opportunity to go gonzo; to create a crazy, visually diverse and utterly innovative last hurrah before presumably concentrating on a multi-platform sequel.
This didn't happen, sadly, but IMC Rising is still an excellent expansion that subscribes to a familiar template: two undeniably brilliant maps and a third that reveals a unique edge after a few matches.Click here to read more...
EA have slashed prices on Titanfall and its DLC over on Origin for a day, meaning you can pick up the base game for just £13.49. The individual map packs have also been discounted, and EA have shaved a third off of the price of the Season Pass. Additionally, ifd you've not gotten into the game yet, you can pick up the Titanfall Digital Deluxe Edition, which contains the base game and the Season Pass, for just £23.99.
It's a cracking game, we're still playing it, and the latest map pack, Frontier's Edge, is an absolute winner. Thanks to shahidali47 @ HUKD!
Xbox One + Titanfall + 12 Months LIVE Gold | £361.85 | Amazon
Shopping around for an Xbox One? Well, we might have just the deal for you as Amazon are currently giving away the console with Titanfall packed in along with 12 months of Xbox LIVE Gold membership for £361.85. Titanfall is probably at its best on Xbox One (check out Jon's review here), designed as it is with the console's controller in mind, and you'll need that Gold subscription if you want to play online, or indeed do pretty much anything with your XO.
But it'll come in damn handy when the Master Chief Collection and Halo 5: Guardians beta arrives this winter. Mmmmm. Tastty Halo goodness. Mmmmmm.
Last time GC had the controller this cheap it sold out fast, so be sure to get on this if you missed out last time. Sure, only the most hardcore Titanfall fan could call this anything other than hideous, but at least it's easier to pick out as your own pad at a glance during a local multiplayer session. This is just a paint-job, underneath is still the excellent official Xbox One controller. GC's recent deal is over a tenner cheaper than anywhere else on the net too. Note: you can get the original black controller for £34.85 at Amazon.

2014 has been ripe with fantastic gaming opportunities already. We've already given a nod to some of the best games of the year thus far, but here are a few of our standout gaming moments and personal happenings of note that we've enjoyed in the first six months of 2014.
... I'd failed to kill the flag carrier during the very last break point of the match. Desperate to regain my pride, I leapt into my mechanised pal, charged across the other side of the map (Runoff), voluntarily ejected, landed atop their base and then killed the offending wannabe hero with a well-placed satchel charge, diving to ground-level to return the flag and dying a split-second later in a hail of chaingun fire and sour grapes. Worth it.
... I single-handedly held a hardpoint location for an entire perfect game, glommed to a wall and laughing as the same irate attackers continually breached into the room expecting me to be waiting in the same location. All they succeeded in doing was bringing me a fresh stash of weapons to use, and earning me an Autopistol challenge or two to bulk up my Gen Rank.
... I destroyed a Titan via a rodeo attack and squashed its vengeful pilot with my own, hurtling down from orbit and turning his grimacing face into a pile of slag.
...Profsaurus joined us in a Game Night and laid down his virtual life so Matt, Carl and I could extract safely. We salute you.
... a thousand other brilliant and embarrassing things happened. Typically involving epic parkour and massive robots.
Titanfall may have fallen from grace (ugh) in recent weeks due to its increasingly quirky matchmaking and tedious wait times, but its gameplay is evergreen.Click here to read more...
