Posted by on Jun 22, 2015

If you need to ask why I love Titanfall, I can only presume that you’re unaware of the giant robots and jetpacks. Reasonable at it seems to me to present that first sentence...

What’s your music genre of choice? Dance, heavy metal, dubstep, trip hop, blues, classical, hillbilly salsa? We made that last one up (we think), but there’s one genre that surely unites the world in praise: “Free”.
