The device known as ControllerMAX allows you to plug in and use essentially any gaming controller into any console or PC - it’s as simple as that at the baseline. This device is no larger than a USB dongle and just as light - and that’s what you get in the box - simple at the outset. NOTE: The brand formerly known as ChronusMAX has become ControllerMAX in the time it’s taken for us to review this device, believe it or not, so supposing you’re seeing the lead image in this review and are baffled by it, fear not - it’s the same device.
Eager Titanfall gamers have seemingly overwhelmed Xbox Live, with Microsoft's online gaming service down for many players. Reports of issues signing in to Xbox Live began earlier today, with Microsoft recently confirming that it was investigating the problem. Access to the online service is required for multiplayer-only Titanfall, among other games.
Our Titanfall Review is nearly 5000 words long. It’s not your everyday average game review, and not something you’re likely to read the entirety of unless you’re either seriously torn about the game or you’re overly-obsessed. What we’re doing here in the aftermath of that article’s release is taking you down a slightly easier-to-digest path, a sort of "Titanfall for the Gamer on the Go", if you will.
Prepare to be wowed. In Titanfall, the developers at Respawn Entertainment have made a massive name for themselves in the industry at the same time as they've ushered in a new generation in multiplayer gaming - a new generation that's long overdue. The team at EA Games have made no secret about Titanfall being a game-changer, and based our tests with the final build of Titanfall in the real world with real, live servers for Xbox One and Windows, we'd have to agree. Titanfall quite simply takes every genre it belongs to out a whole new door.
Early this morning, we reported that the Titanfall goodness would be more extensive than anticipated, with live-action content being promised under a collaboration between Respawn and Playfight. Fast-forward through the day, and the teaser trailer has been unlocked, giving a look at what is coming.
A post-release Titanfall patch for Xbox One, upgrading the game's graphics from the 792p of the beta that disappointed many early players. Although Titanfall for PC runs at 1080p, the Xbox One version of the game drops the resolution down considerably, something gamers had hoped would be addressed by the time the title reached store shelves. Unfortunately, according to the Titanfall developers, a fix won't come until after the Tuesday release.
Microsoft is using its users' data to target political ads to its roster of gamers, the Washington Post has reported. The company wants targeted ads on multiple of its services, including Xbox Live and MSN, and uses Xbox user information to create profiles on its huge array of gamers.
We’re ramping up to the official launch day for Titanfall - next Tuesday, the 11th of March, that is - and it’s become apparent that a backdoor has been opened. In response to word that players - through various means - would be banned by Respawn Entertainment (the developers of the game) for playing the game earlier than the 11th, the team has made clear that they’ll do no such thing.
With just days left before the full official launch of Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment are taking some time to show off more details about in-game play. Today’s bit has to do with Burn Cards, giving users the ability to give themselves a temporary burst of abilities in a round. As the game is all multi-player, each round’s abilities can have a significant impact on the game.
