Looks like you had to request a code.  If you did then the beta is open to you and will appear on your account without need of a code.  If not...SOL.

I've been killed by the smart pistol several times.  There's no doubt in a 1v1 scenario the smart pistol isn't going to win.  However, it's infuriating that a guy jumping around like a headless chicken kills me only to see in the kill cam that he never actually pointed the weapon at me.

Now that the PC beta is open...HOLY FREAKING CRAP THIS IS AMAZING!

 

EDIT: Alright, now that my Nerdgasm is gone, the auto locking pistol has to go.  It's incredibly stupid that a weapon exists where you don't have to aim at all to get kills.  It's bad enough on PC but I can't imagine the kind of advantage that gives on Xbone.

There isn't any. The assault rifle decimates any attempt to be killed by that thing. The smart pistol is essentially valueless unless you're killing grunts. 

Honestly, I love the assault rifle. But it perhaps needs a nerf. As it stands, it beats almost any weapon at any range. Including shotguns and SMGs. It also shoots like a fucking laser, so it's debatably got better accuracy than the sniper rifle. As much as I love it, it may be a bit over powered.

So what happens when you nerf the assault rifle?

 

I got killed today running behind bushes and the guy's auto pistol locked on.  Not a pixel of my body ever appeared in his view.

 

I threw a silencer onto my assault rifle, and I think silencers will be the best attachment in the game.  Not only does it do the obvious, but it allows you to pick off grunts without announcing your location to everyone.  With how fast paced the game is, I don't find the reduced damage a problem.

Going out on a limb here, I'm going to say that people will probably be less fearful of using a shotgun, SMG, or sniper rifle. Seeing as how I said earlier that it puts you at a disadvantage in every scenario.

Got into the PC beta, not really feeling it so far. It might be because it feels so much like Call of Duty, and to me those games were meant to be played with controllers. The keyboard doesn't seem to be all that good for this game, or I just suck a lot.

Why don't you just use a controller?

Because on PC, you'd get murdered.

I hear you, but my way of looking at it is this: I'm old. On consoles, other than the first few days a game comes out, I am almost always over-matched for skill. But I do just fine anyway. Meaning: I get murdered...a lot...but I still do enough murdering myself that I have a good time. And with a game with as much mass-appeal as Tit-fall, there are bound to be a bunch of other people who also don't care and just pick up their controller and have a good time.

 

It's not all high-speed mini-sniping like in Counter Strike. Most of the weapons I've seen have 1)aim-assist or 2) low enough accuracy that spray-and-pray seems to be competitive with precision aiming.

I won't get a chance to try a controller anyway, it seems the beta has "expired" on my Origin account.

Beta is expired. To go along with what mattacus said I played this a lot on the last day with my boy Valor. The reviews are right, the game had depth but what makes it successful is that you don't get this feeling of just being constantly owned by the superior players. Yes, your Titan gets blowed up but you ejected and it's as if you didn't die. Not to mention the mobility and ability to evade threats. The mobility of this game is ingenius.

 

Yes, Valor and I are both getting this game.

I seriously can't wait for this - I'm watching videos, reading articles, following the NeoGAF and AJ thread... I haven't been this obsessed with a game in a looong time.

wtf. I am seriously shocked that you guys are reacting this way.

 

I might have to check it out on release. Who am I kidding, I would have anyway.

So here's my two cents on the game after having a few days to cull my thoughts together.

 

Pros:

 

It's easily the most fun I've had with any of the "next gen" games.

 

The gun play is solid, and very reminiscent of COD4.

 

Using the jet pack/wall running is fun, and if used properly can give you a big advantage over people who play the game as if it were COD.

 

The titans are tuned just right. Powerful, but not unstoppable by any stretch of the imagination.

 

No matter what some of the chumps on gaf would have you believe, team play is very important.

 

The maps are well designed.

 

Cons:

 

The NPCs are worthless. I know they're supposed to be cannon fodder, but their are times where they will stare at you for 2-3 seconds before firing on you.

 

Uncertainty regarding the "Azure" platforjm. I'm hoping we don't have more of the server issues that propped up on the second day of the beta.

 

The beta is over, and we have to wait a few weeks to play again.

 

All in all, I think the game is fun and should be a fairly big seller for MS. I don't think it'll be the massive system seller they'd like it to be, but that's mainly due to it being a multiplayer only game.

I agree with your point about the NPCs. Most of the time I was wondering what their point was. They are just not unique and don't seem to serve any purpose.

I suppose they could have been deliberately nerfed purely for the beta for whatever reason. I hope they are a little more lethal though as I did notice alot of guys scoring between 40-60 kills on them in Attrition. I think the most I got in one game was 17, I always tended to focus on enemy pilots and titans.
