Ed, I think you need some therapy mate.

(cracking article though)
I think the people in the flat above me are having sex...
Either that or they're sleeping restlessly and agreeing with each other a lot.

Titanfall hands-on: the tragic tale of a Titan named Debra

Postby Decent_Jam » 07 Oct 2013, 17:27

I feel like I've stumbled into a very odd episode of Jeremy Kyle - "I fell in love with a robot, but she never treats me right".

Anyway, an interesting story and a compelling game for sure, shame it's such a long way off in a way. I expect there will need to be a lot of character thrown in to keep my attention when playing just with random folk, partied up with some quality gaming colleagues is another matter as well. I shouldn't think lack of single player will make too much difference.

I do have a real girlfriend, before anyone asks. Please resist the urge to extrapolate.

Why did you name your titan after her though? Not the romantic thing in the world really, but this does raise some certain ideas of what it really means when you enter your titan named after your girlfriend.....hmmmmm.

It is quite possible that I am going to greatly regret writing this article.

In hindsight, the humour I deploy here is perhaps a bit blokey for comfort. I hope nobody's offended - the idea was to poke fun at both male and female stereotypes.

And that comes across clearly. If anyone complains, ignore them, they're being inexcusably stuffy.

Ideally, anyone with even a small amount of common sense should be able to grasp that's it's all in good fun. Although that ad advertising "pirate booty", probably doesn't do any good. :wink:

Thanks everybody! Yes, the ad is a bit of a facepalm, isn't it - I can only apologise, should be off the site soon. In the meantime, I certainly wouldn't blame people for using adblocker. You might be able to get rid of it by signing out of Google, too.
