With Titanfall being the first major release for any of the next gen system will Best Buy be having a midnight launch for the game?

Re: Will Best Buy have a Midnight launch for Titanfall

Probably not a big enough of a  title to warrent it.  Midnight openings are very expensive to conduct for the sake of a single game.  Despite how big Origin is.

 

Personally I am going to pre-order it for PC and just download it when it is available.

Any idea what the rating on it is going to be?  I showed the trailer to my daughter and she wants it for the xbox.

 

To me it looks like Mechwarrior getting revisited in a big way.

Hey bobberuchi,

 

I know our images still show RP, but the game has been rated "M" for mature.  

 

Thanks,

I would really like to see the manufactuers start to put in customizable content filters.  Like FarCry 3.  My daughter would love. it.  But all the swearing, drug use and sex.  Well not at her age.  A simple filter to remove the language and some unecessary cut sceens and remove some of the more gory segments.

Hi bobberuchi,

 

That does seem like an enticing option as a father of an  eight year old son who would love to play more of my game collection.  I'd recently turned the blood splatter off on a skateboarding game so he could play it only to later realize he was still hearing some... interesting slang in the campaign.

 

I imagine it would be hard to cut down on the death in a war game, but it seems like other things could be filtered.  Until then, my son's content to play Swap Force!

 

Have a great weekend,

Re: Will Best Buy have a Midnight launch for Titanfall

I don't mind my 11 year old playing the shooting games so much except when there is the language, content and excessive gore.  I think games like Fry Cry 3 could be brought to a wider audience if they have customizable content controls.  I know a number PC games I have played in the past can do this.

 

I absolutly will not even consider bringing GTA into the house.

For those of you who are old enough to remember all the fuss that was made when Time Killers & Mortal Kombat 1st came out just imagine. Games like God of War, Far Cry 3 or GTA would`ve been flatout banned. Back then TRU had power like Walmart/Target & they probably wouldn`t have even stocked them.
