Our writers share their thoughts on the beta
Starting Valentine’s Day, Respawn sent out invites to those who had registered for the Titanfall beta, with later on in the weekend opening it up to all who owned an Xbox One. Many players got the chance to test out the game in all it’s glory, from custom loads outs, Titans and burn cards.
Titanfall is definitely a twitch shooter which feels like a blend of Quake and Call of Duty. You can’t stand still for more than a few seconds without the need to continually move around the map. It’s fast paced action can be easily picked up by any type of player, even if you aren’t good at shooters. It’s a game which has a very short learning curve.
Don’t take my word for it however, read what some of our writers thought of the beta during it’s weekend run.

OXCGN’s Call of Duty: Ghosts Review
Aiming high, but falling short.
by Jayden Perry
In the opening minutes of Call of Duty Ghosts you run through a collapsing town, jump to space and try to defend a space station, then watch as the world as we know it is decimated by high-powered missiles.
As you watch these amazing and out there scenarios play out, with everything exploding all around, you know that this is Call of Duty.
Ghosts marks the first Call of Duty game developed by Infinity Ward after their incredibly successful “Modern Warfare” series. Right from the word go you’ll notice the similar feeling of menus and text, but this game has a lot to offer in it’s new premise, extinction mode and surprisingly complex multiplayer.
Ghosts provides the player with a variety of modes in which to spend your time playing; Campaign, Squads/Multiplayer and Extinction.
