'Titanfall' Is The Most Addictive Game Ever



'Titanfall' Is The Most Addictive Game Ever
Here's why
Because Titanfall’s multiplayer matches are cloud hosted, developers no longer have to make tough choices—like whether to add players or artificially intelligent background characters—to save processing power. “Other AI running around makes the world much more interesting,” says Respawn software engineer Jon Shiring.

On March 11, Electronic Arts will release Titanfall (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC; $60), an online first-person shooter that promises to reinvent shooting-your-friends-in-the-face technology. Developed by Respawn Entertainment, it comes with a notable pedigree. Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella created the Call of Duty franchise before leaving Activision, and his team has the best track record in the business for creating preternaturally compelling games (the CoD series has sold more than 100 million copies). With new gameplay concepts and technology, Titanfall will be this year’s shooter to beat. Here’s why.
Expert Manipulation
Zampella’s team devised CoD’s grabbiest feature, an awards system that gives players weapons based on experience points. It’s an extremely effective method for keeping players engaged. Titanfall adds several twists, such as “burn cards,” single-use items that provide a quick stat boost or extra muscle.
Bodies In Motion 
Most shooters are played on the ground, but Titanfall lets players move like parkour athletes—running on walls and taking massive leaps. “People start playing it normally,” says Zampella, “but after a certain point it clicks: ‘I can jump over that fence.’ Now, when I play a game without wall running, I feel like something’s missing.”
Better Connector
Network-induced delays in multiplayer sessions (a.k.a. “lag”) are instant immersion killers and the bane of a gamer’s existence. All Titanfall games will be hosted on Microsoft’s global network of servers, Xbox Live Compute, which promises to make multiplayer scenarios less susceptible to interruption.

Future Of Digital Marketing

The Origin of Digital-Marketing: The term 'digital marketing' was first used in the 1990s. In the 2000s and the 2010s, digital marketing became more sophisticated as an effective way to create a relationship with the consumer that has depth and
relevance. 
While the term 'digital marketing' may not have been used until the 1990s, digital marketing itself has roots to the mid-1980s when the Soft Ad Group, now ChannelNet developed advertising campaigns for several major automobile companies, wherein people would send in reader reply cards found in magazines and receive in return floppy disks that contained multimedia content promoting various cars and offering free test drives.
The rapid evolution of digital media has created new opportunities and avenues for advertising and marketing. Fueled by the proliferation of devices to access digital media, this has led to the exponential growth of digital advertising.
