Alright so I will be the first to say that the Titanfall beta went well - we really enjoyed it and I myself wasn't really interested in picking up the full game. I might do now though.

The thing is, apparently the beta going well has meant that Microsoft and/or Respawn and/or EA have been bribing the media to over-hype Titanfall. That's according to various online forums and comments sections anyway.

Respawn Entertainment producer Drew McCoysaid has spoken out on NeoGAF to say that they are "insulted."

Anyone who thinks we weren't living in the shadow of decade+ old established franchises at our reveal at E3 are as crazy as their conspiracy theories of anyone getting paid off.

We've had to fight tooth and nail to have a game that anyone would even know existed, let alone be excited for and want to create coverage of. I get it that its not for everyone, but to say we're paying anyone off is downright insanity. Not to mention the height of insulting.

What are your thoughts on Titanfall, did you play the beta? Will you be picking the full game up?
