Respawns Abbie Heppe: "We're not dropping the resolution" of Titanfall for launch

Lol. This is hilarious and I can't tell who's telling the truth anymore. Whatever happened to honesty in this fucking industry? Why are they so afraid of admitting to things rather than defending it to death or until someone like CBOAT posts stuff that all panic and say "YES" or "NO"?

I hate how things are portrayed at times.
Why say yes and no, "no we aren't using alpha textures", "no we are not 720p", when you can beat around the bush or make ban bets.

What would be the reason for this?

So, with all that said, I absolutely DO believe in Respawn --


but this post completely nails it, IMO. They are dancing around it in a ridiculous way, and in fact it's even a bit disrespectful that, instead of actually giving us the customers the actual info we want only TWO weeks before launch, we get a snide remark regarding ban bets.

This is not ok.

We don't officially know the number of maps.
We don't know what a "multiplayer campaign" is.
We don't know what other game modes are in the game.
We don't know the resolution.
We don't know if the framerate is improved over the beta.


We don't know anything, and all they can offer is that, ONLY after a bad and false rumor, we get denials and snide message board posts, but no ACTUAL information on what the truth is?
The only reason we know so much is because, thankfully, people have been able to extract it from the beta files.

That doesn't sit well with me. Stop trying to obfuscate what the hell is going on with the game. I realize it has basically an impenetrable shield with respect to sales and will do fantastically well regardless.

That doesn't mean your customers should be kept completely in the dark, just because you can.
 
Screencap:



Not looking good for CBOAT...the evidence is mounting against him. Mods might have to get that banhammer ready.
Why ban him over an incorrect rumor? These things should always be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes he's right and sometimes he's wrong. I guess this time he was wrong.

Whats the fun in that? Sheesh, lighten up :)

p.s. I don't know how many times it can be stated clearly and officially - both of those claims are false, have been false, and will continue to be false.

The "fun"?

The fun is knowing exactly what we are buying. Look at what Kojima did.

Clear, straightforward, honest. We know what's in the game, we know the length, and no one had to dig through beta files to do so.


My point is not about whether or not it's been denied -- we now know it has, and that's great -- it's why we didn't know these things **in the first place**, along with all the additional information regarding the game and its contents.
 
I thought it was a bit off too, it wasn't long after cboat posted that Respawn came in with literal smiles asking if anyone wanted a ban bet. Seems fishy.

Did they do the, We don't comment on rumors thing first or did we go straight to ban bets? I haven't followed the whole thing.
 
Oh man people are reveling in this, the negative X1 leaker might finally be taken down.
I am happy to see it end like this not because he posted negative stuff, tons of people do that, but he has been off on so many predictions and yet everything he says turns into a major deal on gaf. It hurts actual discussion.

Well to be honest, what freaking game developer gives up ALL of that information prior to release? You know that the resolution is at minimum 792 and they're trying to increase it (patches presumably). You know at least 3 of the modes. You know at least two of the maps from them.

Seriously, stop pretending every other developer reveals everything about their game prior to release. You will be able to find most of that information out in reviews.
 
seriously, such wishy washiness is gross. feeds years of info, gets something wrong and all of a sudden it's permaban talk?
Yeah. It comes with the information he gets. Not all information will come from one informant. Some will be right and some will be wrong. Some might be planted to try to smoke him out.

Who knows?

To expect leakers to always be 100% right is absurd.
 
shit...what if he's knowingly bouncing bad info, because MS is only a few steps behind him? He can always find his way back to GAF if he wants, but if Bill is outside the door with a submachine gun...

CBOAT...I will not forget.

I'm not "pretending" anything -- it's a multiplayer only game where, officially, we haven't been told the number of maps other than knowing it's more than two. A simple comment regarding "over a dozen" is really all that was needed, if the beta leaks didn't happen. Why is that so hard?

We have been told there's a campaign multiplayer with absolutely zero additional info.


...and that's it.

We know the resolution because people obviously analyzed it from the beta, by the way. No information was given before then.

Yes, other devs and publishers DO tell us more to varying degrees, but regardless the metric shouldn't necessarily be based only on that -- I never said that the industry standard was great. On the contrary, I praised Kojima for breaking the mold and being extra honest.
I'm not even saying reveal everything at all -- I'm commenting on the contrast between the way information is being revealed in a reactionary, rather than active way to the customers.

I don't like it, and that's my opinion. I understand that some people are sold based on just what we know so far, but I don't have to agree with that.

Other devs are setting up a better precedent that I prefer. I don't see why I shouldn't speak up regarding this given the opportunity to know that someone is actually listening.

It's not about being right. CBoat chose to double down on "the textures are final" when it was apparent the beta already improved it.

There's a miniscule chance the game is WORSE than the beta, which is why everyone is still confused as shit. Cboat has major cojones to be making a statement like that.

shit...what if he's knowingly bouncing bad info, because MS is only a few steps behind him? He can always find his way back to GAF if he wants, but if Bill is outside the door with a submachine gun...

CBOAT...I will not forget.
Yup. The discussion is really just "Was he given false information to help find the leak OR is he suiciding?"

Spot on, EA and MS have something to prove not the other way around. Respect is earned.

LMAO.

Look at Kojima. Oh yeah. Clear. Straight forward. Honest.

And at $40, still robbing the fanbase at gunpoint.

Especially without any explanation as to why he thinks it's true or why the textures are supposed to get downgraded. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, or at least a fucking explanation.

How about we let Respawn release all that info on there own terms (probably in the form of some coverage blow out a week before or something), instead of at the behest of yammering yoyos on the internet?

Yes. But, on the other hand, the final build isn't public yet. So there still is a chance, it just seems unlikely.

And, we have been lied to by Penello before, quiet obviously. But Respawn isn't Microsoft.
