I was utterly fascinated by the first Titanfall when it launched in 2014, but not having an Xbox or a PC strong enough to run the game meant I could only admire it from a distance. When its sequel released on PlayStation 4 in 2016, I was ecstatic. I was finally going to be able to run on walls, pilot a giant robot, and learn more about its futuristic setting. Well, life finds a way to complicate things and I got sidetracked with a bunch of other shiny new video games. However, now in 2019, I’ve finally gotten around to playing Titanfall 2. Continue reading
