Episode 138: Titanfall

Despite our general lack of interest in the competitive FPS genre, two of the Thumbstick Athletes decided to spend some money on the next big shooter in Titanfall.  Developed by Respawn and published by EA, Titanfall had some huge shoes to fill and very lofty expectations to live up to.  Find out what Dan, someone who doesn't play competitive FPSes, thinks of a multiplayer only shooter.  Also you get to hear Will's opinion of the full release of TItanfall, after having played the beta on both PC and Xbox One.  Is 6v6 enough players for today's competitive FPS?  Are the grunts worthless cannon fodder?  Titanfall has a campaign? Should you "Believe the hype?"
