Bunch of nonsense, shoving down the Multiplayer like that.

I absolutely hate games that force online trophies/achievements. Thank god Uncharted 3 only had 2 and Mass Effect 3 had single player alternatives to their online trophies.

I imagined that being said in Dexter's voice. Well done.

unknownhero11231256d ago

look at all of those enemies killed achievements and only two optional tomb achievements. LO freaking L! I guess their story, which doesn't have any achievements, is too important for tombs to get in the way.

you know what you have to do dexter......

This sucks.
I am a completionest. It's how am wired. However, with the extensive Multiplayer Plat requirments in mind, I will be picking this title up later than expected. I don't mind grinding.. I just don't like being forced to do it in multiplayer.

15 of the 50 achievements/51 trophies are MP related. With the trophy/achievement to reach level 60 taking the longest. I have been a fan of the series, but with the introduction of MP, has me questioning if I really want to pick this up day one.

Think it really was the timing that made it all such an issue.

firelogic1256d ago

What does the addition of MP have to do with you playing and enjoying the SP for a series that you're supposedly a fan of?

Is it because you don't want to play MP to get a 1000 achievement points/platinum? Then simply don't try for it.

It's really puzzling to me why people would forego buying a game because it has an optional MP mode added to it.

Godchild10201256d ago (Edited 1256d ago )

I just said it has me questioning the notion to pick the game up on the first day of release. I can still be a fan and get it days or months after. I did it with Uncharted 2 and we all know how well received the MP was.

Trophies and achivement play no factor in me purchasing a game or enjoying it. If it did, I would never purchase a JRPG, WRPG or RPGs in general.

The fact that the MP has been announced just a few weeks ago, with a release 2 months away has me questioning the intentions of the developer and publisher. Why couldn't they pull an Naughty Dog and let us know almost 5 months in advance. Also it seems like the game was pushed back just to add the MP portion of the game.

GameSpawn1256d ago (Edited 1256d ago )

I'm not the type of person to let something like this stop me from getting a game that I'm interested in, but it really is kind of low to force people into multiplayer this way.

At least with Uncharted the only multiplay trophies preventing platinum are to play ONE coop game and ONE competitive. You don't even need to be on the winning side and all of the more specific online trophies are in an "expansion" that is not required for the "core" trophies list and platinum.

The only thing that really ticks me off about trophies and achievements is the ones that are WAY too specific in what you need to do (only made worse when it is also multiplayer). A perfect example is the multiplayer trophies for AC:Brotherhood - Role Model being the worst. The ONLY way you can even begin to get these is through boosting. Good luck just getting them on your own by chance.

After all this ranting, these things didn't stop me from getting games like AC:Brotherhood, but as a completionist it does bum me out that I'll never really complete these games' lists out, but I've come to terms with that and moved on to other games. I'm proud of what I have and not going to dwell anymore over what I don't.

It's just one more sign that a game is being created expressly as a cash cow. Resources and time that could have gone into the singleplayer campaign are instead funneled into a tacked-on multiplayer mode that developers "herd" people into with achievements like these in some shallow attempt to squeeze a few more dollars out of consumers (presumably when the nickel-and-dime DLC starts rolling in, as is inevitable these days).

Not that story again.....

claterz1256d ago

I hope you don't need online multiplayer trophies to get the platinum like it was in Uncharted.

Godchild10201256d ago

These achievements indicate how the trophies will be and from the looks of it, you will need to obtain all the MP trophies as well as the SP trophies to get the Platinum.

claterz1256d ago

ahhh that kinda sucks, hopefully the MP is fun and I also hope it doesn't take too long to reach level 60 lol

paybackprahl1256d ago

I wouldn't be too sure. As a commenter below described, most of Uncharted 2 and 3's MP trophies were not required for the Platinum - they were labeled with a "+", which in Trophy terms considers them as DLC (optional) trophies.

Wintersun6161256d ago

What? All you had to do was play one Co-op game and one Deathmatch to get all the MP trophies required for Platinum on Uncharted 2 & 3. The rest of the MP trophies were not required for the plat.
