On Nov. 22, prepare to step into the iconic Colosseum of ancient Rome in Ryse Son of Rome’s Gladiator mode and forge your destiny in blood and steel.
Multiplayer looks horrible
Now now, it can't be that bad... we haven't seen much footage of it, so i think we should all wait and see.
Not planning on getting this, but if it gets a 9.0 I'll pick it up. My prediction is a 7.5 or lower though.
I'm more interested with how the sp turns out
Even IGN called the MP "boring" IGN staff could be entertained by a ball of yarn.
Oy a voice of reason? How dare you try to foil his attempt to start a circle jerk! You sir should be sentenced to fry for that ;). And no, not this fry: http://www.veryicon.com/ico... ;)
I've played it, and along with others, can agree that it is indeed NOT horrible.
Well is it good? Average?
I think the SP will be excellent. But The MP looks very repetitive & the combat animations don't look very fluid with a lack different combat styles/techniques.
Day one for me !!!!!
Still can't decide on this
Renting is your friend
Good shout the only thing is that now with Blockbusters going into administration ( http://www.xboxplayers.com/... I wont really have any where to rent. Online yes but never guaranteed to get the game on release
I purchase block busters only or games that have extremely high replay value for me like shooters and racers. Everything else I rent or purchase when they go on sale. Most games I rent thru gamefly I get on release day or the day after release day. They usually ship new games 2 days before they hit retail. Give them a shot. As long as you have it in your Q list a few weeks before the game is available you have a shot of getting it on or a day after release the release date.
I like the sound of customizing my gladiator and everything... I'm mostly looking forward to the Singleplayer though.
Wow...so both this game and Forza are already pushing players to purchase DLC. Ridiculous. DLC is almost always a ripoff. Rockstar has proven to be the only exception in this case.
Almost every game pushes DLC/season passes now.
Not getting Ryse, Forza, or even an xbone, but R* with GTA V hasn't even been able to release any content they promised would come soon after release. Beach bum pack is still not out, stimulus hasn't even dropped when it said we'd get both by the end of Oct, and Heists doesn't even have an estimate as to when it will drop. A few gifs on this page for Ryse MP... http://www.gamespot.com/for...
It's only if you want the multiplayer maps and basically get them instantly. So for me personally that would be "bearable", I still dislike it though, as it splits the player base in two for multiplayer. But then DLC always feels like "Game not finished, pay more!" to me. Being a cynical old fart and all ;).
"Ryse The Season Pass is all about the Multiplayer (Game)" Hardly ground breaking news, season passes are always for the multiplayer aspect (CoD, BF4 etc etc)
Apparently someone disagrees with you. I don't know why but they do.
Because this is N4G and he didn't say anything bad about Microsoft.
My guess would be because not all DLC or season passes are "always for the multiplayer aspect."
...because season passes are not always multiplayer focused, perhaps? It's dumb to say that when two of this year's biggest releases are currently getting substantial single-player DLC as part of their season passes.
I would love a different combat style,i.e. dual swords, two handed weapon that could be really cool dlc in my opinion.
Seems like something that should be in the game tbh *not as dlc
I was all in on this game until they announced the season pass. The IMO, the microtransactions should be covering the costs of the DLC for everyone. The idea of paying for maps in a strictly CO-OP MP game doesn't sit well with me, and the pay wall in front of the new maps, will lead to the game getting stale before its due. Oh well, maybe I'll pick it up at some point down the line.
Every game and I do mean every game on next get consoles will have microtransactions or day one dlc.
Sure thing, buddy. I hope you're being hyperbolic, because I can think of quite a few title right now at launch that have no DLC, and some have no DLC/microtransactions planned ever.
I only ever really buy DLC if it's story related. Bad times. Plus the multiplayer is janked up to high heaven. Should have let Crytek handle that as well as the single player, which looks a lot better.
