Richard Lemarchand of Naughty Dog discusses the potential of Uncharted 3's multiplayer and how he wants to take on the big boys.
Being honest and not a suck up Maybe you should take a gander on your forums ND so you can fix the things that are wrong with the game since theres a lot of people complaining....the ones that actually have the balls to point out that something is wrong with the game. Cough Cough...Blindfire. No developer is perfect, I love ND, I love Uncharted but theres some things wrong with the multiplayer because like always they've decided to change the things which don't need fixing yet not fix the stuff which actually needed fixing. It's fustrating that they don't listen to people on the forums where most of the people there are "Uncharted Fanatics" who spend most of there time on the multiplayer. It's better to listen to them then people who havent really played much of Uncharted. I might not be as fond of the new changes but I say bring back the Summer Beta ND, it was better. Anyway didn't ND say this once then a few weeks later they said they could never take on the "big boys" like COD because it's a MP game while Uncharted is an exclusive.
I didn't have enough time with mp to judge it, so I won't comment on blind fire. But, I don't remember the quote you mentioned, can you add the link please? Cheers!
Wasn't really a a direct quote mind you but you can find it here I have the N4G link http://n4g.com/news/803409/... but the link dosen't work, the only link I could find was from HipHopGamer....unfortunately http://www.hiphopgamershow.... "Cogburn conceded that as a first-party exclusive less players are likely to play Uncharted 3 online than Modern Warfare 3. “In terms of numbers of players, I have no doubt that Modern Warfare 3 is going to kill us. It is a ridiculously powerful franchise, you know, their sales are through the roof, they’re multiplatform, and to be honest, the industry needs games like that,” he added"
"Uncharted 3 Multiplayer “To Take on the Big Boys”" Ummm yeah...with the Summer Beta, not with the current beta. 1. Why was the character speed increased? Everyones jumping around like monkeys like in Uncharted 2. Where is the sense of weight I had in the June beta? 2. Almost infinite sprint(biggest issue with the Subway beta). Its frustrating that you have to chase someone down forever to finish a kill. 3. Melee problems still exist. A person can be 5ft away from me, yet when they hit the melee button they ZOOM into you and somehow hit you. I predict that tons of people are going to cancel their preorders after playing the Subway beta. Btw, before you hit the disagree button until your fingers bleed, check the ND forums. People are complaining that the Subway beta is MUCH worse than the June beta and VERY vocal about the blindfire issues. http://forums.naughtydog.co... http://forums.naughtydog.co... http://forums.naughtydog.co...
"I predict that tons of people are going to cancel their preorders after playing the Subway beta. " TBH I can't see how anyone would want to cancel their pre order after playing a beta, especially for a game like Uncharted. I'd pay £40 for Uncharted 3 even if it didn't have a multiplayer mode at all! SP is gonna be incredible.
"I'd pay £40 for Uncharted 3 even if it didn't have a multiplayer mode at all! SP is gonna be incredible." Thats the thg. Most people don't think like you. If most people were willing to drop $60 just for a 10-16 hour experience then COD games(multiplayer focused games) wouldn't be topping PS3/360 sales charts every year.
"That is the most retarded thing i've ever heard. Don't confuse your "hopes" with your so called "logic" And the weird comments begin. Mieko, lets see how stupid my comment is when Uncharted 3 sells less than Uncharted 2 in the same time period. When I bring this thread back up a week after UC3 releases, I don't want to hear any excuses like "Nope Vgchartz isn't credible" or "So what? NPD is just Amerca, not the world" Btw, how is predicting that people will cancel their preorders fanboyish. Its simply a prediction. No more, no less.
Lets assumed ND listened to ppl who complained about the summer beta and changed it back to UC2. You would have whined your ass of. Guess what pre orders are not dependent on whether you suck at the game or like the game. Just say you are not going to buy. Dont act as if a bunch of ppl are cancelling or pre ordering based on whether you like/dislike the game. The number of players who play on UC2 daily is more then BFBC2 pc,360,ps3 combined. Going by your stupid logic no one would have bought UC2 or cancelled their preorders because you did not like UC2 Multi
"Mieko, lets see how stupid my comment is when Uncharted 3 sells less than Uncharted 2 in the same time period. When I bring this thread back up, I don't want to hear any excuses like "Nope Vgchartz isn't credible" or "So what? NPD is just Amerca, not the world" With all the releases that's to come in november, especially with modern warfare 3 releasing 3 days ahead of it, it wouldn't come as a suprise. Don't try to make that prediction as if it gives your stupid ass comment "People are going to cancel their preorders" any sort of credibility. Would something like that make it any less of a success? No it wouldn't. Like I said, don't confuse your "hopes" with your "logic" which is something you absolutely lack.
Already your making excuses? Like I said, lets wait for the sales figures to come.
You should expect it out of him, mieko. It's very rare that he's actually logical about something. On topic, somehow I don't think that this will change too many people's opinions. Will it change YOURS, logic? Admittedly, I don't like all the changes. I used to beast out with the G-MAL, but now I can get blindfire'd to death by almost anything. Still, I suck it up and keep playing; I haven't been disappointed with the unique experiences ND's given me in the Uncharted series yet, be it singleplayer or multi. YOU can go on and point out three posts where people complained, but why don't you count up all the positive ones, and see what's outweighed by what? Doing so before posting your silliness would be using logic. EDIT: lmao, you ignore us, and yet use your last bubble to inform us of that? Kinda counterproductive, isn't it? Or contradictory, to say the least. I STILL don't know how you got all those bubbles. Must be good at stealth trolling, or so the mods think, because most of us can see it as plain as day.
"And the weird comments begin. Mieko, lets see how stupid my comment is when Uncharted 3 sells less than Uncharted 2 in the same time period" Ignorant post. Oh I see, you're Nostradamus when it comes to these things. You're right...the weird comments begins. EDIT: Hatred? nah...i'm just calling you out on your BS. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees it.
so i played the subway beta and i loved every single thing in the MP and those 25 days until lunch are a pain to me you guys complain all the time and the worst part that sometime dev's listen to you and ruin thier games you can cancel your pre order it's your lost
UC isn't successful because of its MP, its successful because of its SP. The MP is just a very awesome bonus for UC fans. For a game like BF, if the MP sucks, then its a no buy
@WhiteLightning First of all there were people complaining even during the summer beta. There will always be people complaining. I am not saying they are not legitimate but sometimes ppl go overboard. Naughty Dog has stated that they will correct the sprint and blindfire issues but I dont understand why you are still whining. You are anyway not going to play it even if they correct that because you are unhappy with the whole concept of medals and kickbacks, boosters etc so why are you worried about the subway beta? Dont play the MP. A number of others will do and I thank ND for that.
Oh here we go, someone who thinks that you can't criticize ND. If we were all like you then we wouldn't get improvments to anything. "Naughty Dog has stated that they will correct the sprint and blindfire issues but I dont understand why you are still whining" Why don't they interact with the fourms then instead of letting people make so many threads about it if they were so serious. "You are anyway not going to play it even if they correct that because you are unhappy with the whole concept of medals and kickbacks, boosters etc so why are you worried about the subway beta? " I play Hardcore mode so yeah....it does affect me aswell. "Dont play the MP. A number of others will do and I thank ND for that. " Who the hell do you think you are telling people what to do. What.....so I can't complain or how you see it "whinning"....it' ;s not whinning, it's just criticism, they messed up, I'm pointing it out. ND aren't perfect you know, no developer is and I wish people like you would realise this instead of just thinking "Oh he said something bad about ND, let's disagree with him and tell him off" "First of all there were people complaining even during the summer beta. There will always be people complaining" Not as much as there is now, when ND got up to patch 3 most people were happy. Yet again they've changed something instead of changing the things people actually want fixed. Back when Patch 3 came out the online was great, but not now, with the Subway beta they don't need a patch number 3 because they already had most of the MP sorted during the Summer Beta. If your going to call me a "whinner" why don't you make yourself an account on the ND forums and tell each person "whinning" what you've just told me.
Yeah mate there is a reason why 4 million people bought Uncharted 2 and the forums only have about 20k plus Uncharted fanatics as you like to put it. Its because most people didn't like the way Uncharted 2 online played. All the whinning on the forums from the UNCHARTED FANATICS is whinning being done because they want UC3 to be just like UC2. But Uncharted 2 didn't work for most of us. Its the KZ3 shit all over again. New player want better controll, old players want it back the way it was, GGs meet half ways and people just ignored the game. I swear PS3 fanboys are the most selfish and whining people I ever met. Let the developers do what they want, adjust and get used to it.
I really couldnt care less about UC3's MP, I want the SP soooo bad its just looks amazing and its a day one purchase but I have little time for any MP these days when I love my campaigns so much so I will only pick one MP game and play that from time to time so I can devote alot of time to it, rather than play bits and pieces of lots of MP's and never fully unlock and explore everyhting an MP game has to offer that will possibly be BF3
There's so much hype around UC3's SP (for good reason) and I don't think that they need to be so concerned about "taking on the big boys" in terms of their MP. And your right, with so many other good MP games out there, it's hard to devote so much time to more than a couple.
Do you realise that Uncharted 2 MP is the biggest MP on the PS3 after COD? To give you an example the number of players playing UC2 daily is more then BFBC2 players in PC,360,PS3 put together. It is big and it is the second biggest on PS3.
UC3 will get game time from me based on its SP. I too am not a big fan of their MP. I will play a little of it, but it won't compete for my time compared to the likes of BF3 and MW3 which both will most likely consume all my MP time.
indeed, there soo many of these huge MP shooters not to mention Gears 3, Halo Reach, Killzone 3 on top of BF3, MW3, the new Counter strike etc etc all bundled with insane levels of ranks and unlockables, different game modes designed to you keep playing their game for months/years to come how can you devote any significant time to any of them if your a more of a SP man? I just say pick one and really invest in it, if your a SP of course. Even if your not a SP man (blasphemy!) then you would find it hard to fully explore 2 of these monster MP mode's
Uncharted 2's SP was truly a masterpiece. The story telling is the highlight for me.
Right now it's a zigzag running, blind fire, to the melee fest. Oops...don't forget the nade spamming!
get it on! Its my multiplayer game of choice!
I will only be playing this game for its single player story. The multi-player of the last one wasn't so great. No way it will match the others out there and coming.
The MP needs some work. Nothing a patch or two can't fix. Lets be honest though, who buys this game for MP? The SP is where the bread and butter is. That's why I am getting it day one.
Anytime I go into a game it just freezes my entire console :(
Im a huge fan of the Uncharted series and love 3... but im sprry to say with all its awesome and fun new features, the gameplay has changed from 2 and isnt as good as 2. I dont understand why I average like 3 k and 10 d. I just totally suck at the game. I cant get a kill with the AK47 for the life of me, it just bounces all over and I dont even hold the button down... people run thru me like its nothing. When I use to play U2 I was pretty good, so I can only say that im only looking forward to single player if anything and or I might just pick up a 360 and gears 3 instead...
I feel I'm not having as much fun online in UC3 as I should be. It's as if gameplay is off and not accurate. I play a lot of competitive online multiplayer games, but this game right now has an identity crisis as to who its really tailored to. I say this because if they want it to compete with the big boys, it needs to be playable so big boys can compete.
People were complaining about the multiplayer in june and saying UC2 was better. NOt they changed some of it people are complaining again..... Typical Typical...
Its great i love it but i never played un2 multi to compare it to. I dont see it taking on gears 3 or mw3 but its hella fun and a nice bonus to a game i will buy for singleplayer. Theres nothing really like it but they really need more guns and customization because thats what gets me into a game. I like the idea of moving levels like the train and plane and stuff like a sandstorm, really cool (although i always fall off the train like 5 times every time lol).
but MP is lost. Bullet travel at 10 ft? come on ND! way to much life and hardcore mode gives you even more! Kickbacks don't stack because some people complained back in june. Too much jumping around (speed) melee has 5ft reach! This can never take on the big boys
