    Ahh, another day, another bunch of wild, unfounded accusations on the internet. This time, folks are targeting Titanfall, and the fact that, well, people - namely games press - seem to be enjoying it. Won't somebody please think of the children?

    In the midst of explaining that the purpose of a beta is to actually test for bugs, Titanfall's producer Drew McCoy took to NeoGAF to respond to claims that "Anyone who thinks we weren't living in the shadow of decade+ old established franchises at our reveal at E3 are as crazy as their conspiracy theories of anyone getting paid off.

    "We've had to fight tooth and nail to have a game that anyone would even know existed, let alone be excited for and want to create coverage of. I get it that its not for everyone, but to say we're paying anyone off is downright insanity. Not to mention the height of insulting."

    Fair play, Drew. Conspiracy theories and accusations of bribery will always exist in a passionate industry like this, of course, but that's not to say it shouldn't be called out from time to time. The team have clearly worked hard to make something new and unique - let them enjoy a little bit of praise for once, huh? Sometimes people just like something because it's fun, not because they were paid to like it.
