    How big is the download? Should I be trying to queue it up from work, or wait till i get home?

    Not that I'll be on much before midnight anyway, and I can feel overwatch calling tonight, Unless I get sucked into watching the olympics all night again...

    Haha, I just tried to queue it up from the xbox.xom site, but it says I need an adult to alter my maturity settings.

    :)

    I *am* the registered adult account you cretins. Maybe I should sign in as my son, that might do it!

    I guess I'll have to wait until tonight to download it after all.

    I really just hope they managed a locked 60fps this time.

    @DUFFMAN5 yeah, Siege is the shiznizz. Trying make platinum still... Keep hovering between Gold 2 and 3. It can get seriously hard sometimes.

    Didn't take too long for me to download, my Live downloads are usually at around 20+ Mbps.

    Just tried the training gauntlet on both platforms. The X1 version looks a lot blurrier than the first game. I counted 720p and 900p respectively, so even though they are still using the same engine as TF1, they must have taken more than a few pointers from DICE.

    It seems to run super smooth at least, so that's enough for me. Also, 49.10 is my best time so far. I don't think that's good.

    The first one looked like shit on xb1 really, it was dated from day one.

    Yeah but I think the multisampling helped. It was pretty sharp overall. I didn't care much for the visuals, it only needed to run smoother.

    Well this just feels like the last one, only it's slower to get the Titan in the hard point match I played, doesn't seem as dramatic and exciting as the original. Plus the graphics are average, it runs well but it hasn't blown me away.

    I might try this on both tbh, it'd be interesting to compare, although I'd probably still get it on xbone to follow on from the first, plus that machine's easier to use while the missus is still up.

    This was surprisingly difficult for me to find on the store. couldn't even find through a search.

    let's see how it goes.

    Just completed first game of Hardpoint. Loved the hook. Defo Titanfall 1.5 I'm more than happy with that, like the new menu,load out screens.
    Very happy in fact, bearing in mind this is a very limited amount of content.

    @vortex
    I had intended to download on Ps4 also, but not a great deal of point as I have pre ordered the xbox flavour.

    I don't think it's for me.
    The new bounty hunt just went on and on. (I am a bit shit at it which probably doesn't help and most of the team quit early on).
    It just doesn't really seemed to have moved on from the little I have seen. Although some will be happy with more of the same, I got bored after a week of one, I've got bored even quicker of this. One for the sales for me I think, unless the sp is awesome.

    It's well put together but it just doesn't interest me for long.

    What is "happy hour" ? Bonus xp maybe ?

    I was Shite at PH obviously. Hard point is one of my favourite modes in Titanfall, so happy that is still in.

    A round of hardpoint and bounty hunt and i can confirm its pretty good fun. Rodeo ona titan no longer seems to kill it though as i just pulled a battery out of it and im not sure what that did. Will have to have a read up on the changes.

    Quite hard to get a titan on hardpoint now though it seems, although my team did get smashed.

    The pilot handling is sublime.

    One thing I noticed in the training is that you can now ADS while wall running and hanging on a wall. That is a BIG change. will help mobile kills a lot (maybe less so on a game pad...).

    Not sure what the happy hour bit is but it's put us newbies in a standard network. We can make our own, I assume it's like a clan, maybe happy hour is something like double xp? That would be pretty cool if we could create out own and set when happy hour was.

    Anyways, played an hour or so, doesn't feel as smooth in tea of wall running etc, not sure why. I actually kind of miss the ai all over the place! Titans don't feel as epic as they used to, I can happily run past one now and be OK, in the first if you were running and turned a corner into one it was actual panic. 

    Something feel 'off'  to me, can't put my finger on it. Hope they add another mode or map. Still, it's titsndllyand I love titanfall!

    @kadooosh yeah feels well off to me also....dropped 100's of hours into TF1 and this feels and looks (I know its an Alpha) worse...

    Will try again later when mates are on it.

    I played a round of Bounty Hunt, and it was pretty darn fun. I'm a bit disappointed with the grappling hook. Is there a HUD thing telling if I'm in range to grapple something? If not, that should definitely be a thing. I'd also love to have more control over it - using the double jump to gain height while grappling in, it's a bit too binary for my liking.

    P.S. How do I just hang on a wall?
    Momentum seems to be a big thing with the grapple. You can toggle it so there is definite nuance. It's pretty tricky to get used to though.

    The movement has more scope but Titans seemed rarer, maps more focused in the couple of Hard points I played. I only earned one per match. Is it more performance based now?

    Also, where was a AI? I could have sworn they weren't confined to Atrrition in the last game.

    I don't really know why, but this isn't clicking with me, at least on Bounty Hunt mode. I'm not really getting the hang of the new skills, and enemies are marked too clearly on screen.

    Maybe I just need to play some regular Attrition.
