Should a "WWhhhhhyyyyy?!" be anywhere near here?

Agreed.
Not every game needs some tacked on Generic @ss multiplayer mode to be good.

I wish thes Devs would get it through their thick skulls that there is a hand full of games out there that pretty much have multiplayer locked down, it's been proven year after year.

They tack these multiplayer modes on with a half a dozen or more achievements/trophies and the community is dead a few weeks after the game comes out and you are left with an uncompleted game.

Can't stand that! I go and start running towards the plat then go "oh wait, the online community is probably dead" and realize earning the plat is literally impossible....

Well Uncharted originally started out with no MP and it wasn't a real goal to include it, but people love it now.

Mass Effect 3 is great online mode as well.

Sure tacked on could flop in an instant or not if its done right. There is alot of potential with multiplayer modes being added to a game to multiply replayability.

You know for once you guys could give devs the benefit of the doubt it would be a nice change, eh?

But what Im I saying you guys are commenting on unconfirmed news you have all the right to bash the MP before its even confirmed or shown...

I'm sorry but why are people saying ME3s was good, it's crap and it took resources away from the single player.

"Hmmmm should we spend resources on changing the ending quicker so it's not a load of crap or on multiplayer"

As for Uncharted....the second games was good because they finished the game and they chucked it in there, it was fun, simple, addictive and was a little unique. Uncharted 3 however became COD like with it's gimmicks and it wasnt about skill anymore, just what overpowered weapon with it's overpowered mods I have unlocked before you

Just because it has online, and the franchise didn't previously have MP. DOESN'T mean it is tacked on.

Look to Uncharted, God of War Ascension, Assassins Creed, Mass Effect 3 as perfect examples on how to bring MP to a SP game.

Now you are partially right on MP being "tacked on" to add bullets to games. Several have done it JUST to put a bullet on the back of the box. Most notably for me being Singularity and Assassins Creed Liberation.

But jumping to conclusions is just silly here. You never know. Could end up being very good. They could make it very unique to the game, building on what the SP made of the game. OR they could end up making it a shell of what MP is supposed to be and ruining it. But that's why we just don't play it lmao.

All I am saying is don't write something off before you know anything about it. I thought ME3's multiplayer was a dumb addition, then ended up loving it.

Why? Because Uncharted has it.
DeadlyFire  +   763d ago
Well Uncharted evolved from Tomb Raider so its only natural to see Tomb Raider Evolve further from Uncharted inspiration.
rainslacker  +   762d ago
Too true. It doesn't really bother me, so long as it doesn't affect the SP. If it's good like Uncharted's MP then there shouldn't be an issue.

Gag me with a spoon. EWWWWW.
Aghashie  +   764d ago
Really... Unexpected i should say. Lets see how this unfolds.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   764d ago
How would they make that happen? The formula from what we've seen looks very single player esque. And from what it looks like I can't see any real way to implement MP.

Its about a character that grows into the Laura Croft that we all know. Adding in MP is random and will be very tacked on. Whatever, if true I just hope it doesn't interfere with the single player in ANY way.
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   764d ago
Oh god....first GOW now TR....when will devs learn that these games don't need MP? Give me a decent story, good controls, and good graphics and ill be happy. MP.....blah!!!
VsAssassin  +   764d ago
GoW: Ascension announced multiplayer months ago, and released a beta to streamline the mode. This TR announcement is barely factual in that the game is 3 months away from release without a single beta. I don't think this game will have MP.

PS: GoW's MP looks to be a wonderful 'brawl' type of multiplayer mode. It's fun!

what's the matter with GOW MP ?!
every one loved it
Temporary  +   764d ago
GoW Multiplayer is beautifully done. Those with skill will love it, you cant button mash and be good.

I really enjoyed the multiplayer and wish it wasnt down til the 2nd.
ThatEnglishDude  +   764d ago
Why not? It's practically mandatory to have multiplayer in every fucking game nowadays.
Godmars290  +   764d ago
And it doesn't automatically make a game better. If anything it takes away from the SP component.

Have to guess that they're doing it to copy Uncharted, but even the first was SP-only.

So hope for SP DLC is now gone? Friggin hate picking up a game with a killer SP, they announce DLC and I think "awesome more SP missions" then realize "oh wait it has that crappy Online mode...." Turns out all the DLC is stupid map add-ons for the tacked on multiplayer....
Plagasx  +   764d ago
Why can't a game just have great Single Player experience without MP nowadays?

azshorty2003  +   764d ago
Dammit! Not only do I not waste my time with any game where multiplayer is 'tacked' on, but it also pisses me off because there will no doubt be trophies/achievements for it. Which means I can't get Platinum unless I play it
LAWSON72  +   763d ago
I heard the devs in a interview w/the the devs on ign and it seemed lime one of the guys was very strict about not including multiplayer. I think this rumor is fake.
Valenka  +   761d ago
Meagan Marie from Crystal Dynamics confirmed it on the Eidos Forums. I only have one question: why?
