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

Your comments on our articles.

Ed once again crowbars his personal life into a game preview

They say the fastest way to a woman's heart is through her ribcage. That's certainly true of Debra, my Atlas class Main Battle Titan. Once upon a time, all I had to do was scurry up to her from any angle, tap a button and she'd whirl round, seize my torso between her huge yet tender digits and plunge me into her cockpit-bosom. Ours was a beautiful and oh so very destructive relationship - but alas, the times they are a-changing. Debra and I have had a falling-out, you see. We're right slapbang in the middle of what folks of a certain age and background term a "lover's tiff".... read more

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.

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:
