I am hopeful and expecting that unlike Destiny or The Division, Titanfall 2 actually has a real, solid, enjoyable single player experience that preps you at least somewhat for the ensuing online carnage. That is what I feel the competition I have looked at sorely lacks. I felt this way about Star Wars Battlefront also. Basically, I thought the game sucked myself. I thought it was half-assed.

Not sure if you're playing Titanfall 2 on PC or console, but while the SP campaign I LOVED and it will definitely get you well-versed in the mechanics before you ever touch multiplayer... console players are kind of pushovers, but if you're on PC where the mouse and keyboard unlock the full insanity that is a Titanfall character's capabilities, pepper your angus before diving into MP. There are a lot of me's in the Titanfall PC userbase, to the point sometimes they even out-me me. If you manage to get ahold of the speed and parkour though, oh my, Titanfall's movement feels like you've lived in chains all your life and have just been freed.

Luckily they also added a fun as hell Frontier Defense coop mode as well in which you can get a lot more practice as well as just play for its own sake as it's a lot of fun. That was one of the fanbase's favorite modes in Titanfall 1, and they finally got around to adding it to Titanfall 2.

Yeah, it's all about console for me for the foreseeable future. I've been distracted from gaming lately by a bunch of stuff going on in my personal life and then come night time I am too tired to really do anything. That is pretty sad, isn't it? I am too tired to lay down on a couch, propped up with pillows with a controller in my hands resting on my lap and pretend I am Batman. It's just too hard. I get tired thinking about it. Some superhero I am.

Anyway, that stuff about Titanfall 2 makes me want to play it soon when I have some time and energy for it. I'll fit right in with the console pushovers. :)

I've also been replaying Strider (2014). Originally played it on the PS4 when it was initially released, now playing the Steam version. Higher res + insane framerate FTW. Still just as fun as it was in 2014! GREAT remake of the classic from the Sega Genesis.

Hooked on Divine Divinity now, and I am almost through act one (Of five). I've learned where the games rough edges are, how to deal with combat in general, found the quick save button combo, so life is good! The story so far is interesting, and the game actually has a lot of those things you'd expect for a modern one - Crafting, classes that aren't locked into specific skill trees, somewhat non-linear gameplay. And this is without hand holding, so its awesome. You can run into encounters where you learn the hard way that the only solution is to load the game again, and then just don't go back there for several levels. And a lot of things you have to discover yourself, such as through reading books in the game on how to craft.

I like it a lot actually. It feels like the bastard child of Diablo II and Baldur's Gate.

Sounds like you just described Skyrim and Fallout.

Speaking of Divinity, has anyone played Original Sin solo? Or is it necessary to do Co-Op?
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

I beat it solo before it became released as the Enhanced Edition. It is definitely soloable, as you got your two heroes and 2 NPCs along all the time. If you play it Co-op, you just play one hero each, with 2 NPCs.

An amazing game, so go play it. It is one of the best looking games out there IMHO due to the art style, and the gameplay is freaking awesome.
