For the better part of a week now?maybe even more, I really don’t want to think about it?I’ve been chasing the dragon that is Titanfall‘s infamous Gen 5 “Gooser” challenge. Hours upon hours spent day in, day out trying to pick enemy Pilots out of the sky in Last Titan Standing after they’ve ejected from a doomed state. And what do I have to show for it? Thirty out of the 50 still required to shift from Gen 5 to Gen 6. It’s the only requirement I’ve left to meet. And I say “still required” because Respawn very quietly revealed that upon hearing the ever-growing grievances of other players like me stuck on Gen 5, they’ve decided to reduce the count from 50 to five in an upcoming update.
I should be grateful. I should be happy. But I’m not. I remain as miserable as ever, because for lack of anything else to pursue in the game (besides, y’know, just pure pleasure), I’m going to spend the weekend (if only that) trying to get the last 20 goosings I need. Not sure what I’m trying to prove, or who I’m trying to prove it to?I just can’t let it go at this point.
This may result in my screaming descent into madness.
