TitanFall
In Titanfall, players compete in six-on-six online multiplayer-only matches set on a war-torn planet, playing as mech-style Titans and their pilots. The game’s action is fast-paced: as pilots, players can run along walls and link jumps together parkour-style, as well as employ special abilities such as cloaking; as Titans, players are equipped with more destructive armaments and special protective shields. Several gameplay elements were designed to increase the game’s accessibility, such as a locking pistol, the supplementing of each team with weak AI bots for easier kills, and temporary power-ups. Respawn describes the game as bringing “scale, verticality, and story” to first-person shooter multiplayer gaming, incorporating elements traditionally used in single-player campaigns. The game uses Microsoft’s cloud computing services to offload non-player activity to servers and optimize the home computer for graphical performance.

Well, the honeymoon is over for the SEX CRIMINALS. Can Jon and Suzie survive Jon and Suzie?

“My friends and I have been talking about comics and the like and pitting two super heroes against each other and trying to find out who would win. but lately we had one situation where we don’t know what would happen, so i thought id write in and ask you guys.

If there was a fight between Thor and Superman, who would win?”
