Titanfall is one of, if not the, most enjoyable multiplayer experiences out there right now. But it’s not all fun and games, sometimes there is annoyance, disbelief and downright rage. Join me on a journey to the Frontier as I look into the most annoying ways to die in Titanfall.…

Update: The guys over at OXM did some digging and it turns out that the code was sent to selected GAME Reward Card holders and not everyone who had pre-ordered. So yay I'm a valued GAME customer I guess. The Titanfall beta has been a bit of a puzzle for…
