An eGamer journalist talks about why Naughty Dog made the right choice to withhold The Last Of Us' multiplayer component until now.
shows their focused on SP.
Looks like it payed off.
Exactly. The MP is, and should be considered, a side dish to an excellent entrée. If a waiter talked talking up the veggies and mash while I ordered my steak - it would seem suspect. lol
No it shouldn't. I'm not commenting on TLOU multiplayer because I haven't played it, but if you include something, you don't half ass it. Bioshock 2 got demolished because of the terrible multiplayer. If TLOU has bad multiplayer, that should be reflected upon it. You don't include something and then make it second rate. To have something as major as multiplayer, that requires to be consistent with the single player too. And if either of them detract from one another, well you shouldn't have included the MP then.
Yup hes right. Single player first & multiplayer second. If your going to do it the other way then u mightest will forget about the single player & just focus on the multiplayer. I dont want to play a 5 hour campaign that leaves me clueless in the end. Just my opinion.
God of War: Ascension did that, focus on multiplayer first! Ithink most people wanted to hear about the single player more than the multiplayer especially from a series sequel know for brilliant single player experiences!
Yeah, I agree that their focus in showing MP was wrong. But still SP was really awesome. Not as epic as 3; but still really good.
To be fair i dont think any game is going to be able to top the opening sequence of GOW3. When i 1st played it I quit and restarted just so i could play it again, lol.
IMO it's the worst out of all the God of Wars. All God of war games are good but although Acsension looked beautiful and had some pretty awesome boss battles, it has the weakest story than the others.
FTA: "While this isn’t me advocating that all games should withhold details and information, it’s simply an encouragement to remember who is your loyal and main audience, and to remember that they’re the ones who will be buying a game like this first. To that end, Naughty Dog has done right by my books." translation: Due to the quality of their past work ND gets a pass where other devs would get pummeled. Usually withholding info about a game is a sign that said info might hurt sales. Here we forgive ND because we are confident in the quality of the SP to the point that we don't care about the MP as much. It's a double standard that ND has earned, but it is a double standard none the less.
IMO, much like DICE and their Battlefield SP.
