The ps2 was another step as well into masses and the mainstream world , i'd say as much as some of the earlier ones . It opened a whole new market because it lured a massive amount of people that just wanted the cheapest dvd player of the time .
Of course then those people started playing games .
I quite like replaying my ps2 classics and would love that ... however i feel that for the mainstream market ps2 games are going to feel too graphically outdated (with a few exceptions) to look good as regular remasters . Many people will only get those as part of a collection of titles , or on the cheap as an original psn re-release or ps now .
All while some ps3 era titles were just missing hd resolutions and textures to look good enough for the ps4 ... al already existed t...
I think that this is the last Real Patcher Cycle . I think the industry is going to just switch to Cloud powered Mediums and Vaporware Analysts
"So in theory those who ONLY care about MP could easily suggest SP takes something away from what the MP could have been even if it was "that time could have been better spent making more MP maps". "
Except everything proves your argument to be wrong so far . Concentrating on mp only hasnt stopped (or even slowed down) in any way publishers from regulating the maps to a standard amount , then drip feeding the rest as dlc .
Hell with the ga...
Yup , easily the best Alien game ever released . I quite never understood the obsession to turn the Alien franchise into fps or tps shooters , when they only work in a horror/scifi thriller setting and atmosphere ...
And when they work best as an overpowered foe on the hunt . Even in the movies where there are a horde VS a group of marines , it's quite not as if there are hundred of them to shoot ... and as if a single one of them couldnt shred the whole group to pieces ....
It actually looks good and interesting this time around . But i still gotta pass on it for more important games .
" Assassin Creed Syndicate hero Jacob Frye isn't the suave Ezio Auditore clone we were expecting"
How the hell could you have been expecting that from the trailers and video seen thus far ?
They arent even remotely similar in demeanor , personality and feel from the very first video .
His personality is probably why we got a sister this time around to recenter him and counterbalance
Games Rentals are hardly available everywhere in the world .... and sometimes when they are not necessarily with the latest titles
I don't necessarily feel that a mp game shouldnt cost full price . But it better feel damn worth it , and not just "less" than an usual SP+MP combo , and certainly not as if there were clearly a plan for a campaign that got scrapped .
But the people defending such practices might wanna enlighten us about game that actually gained something from ditching the SP
When the hell have multiplayer fans even suffered because of offline and SP gaming and its fans ? Probably never or close to it .
So how exactly is this unfair to you ? We've mostly seen initially single player games suffer because of the time and ressources allocations diverted to added multiplayer modes .... or those remaining at the same level of quality in cases like Uncharted ... not the other way around
I wouldnt go as far as lazy . But since when isnt SP a big component of a Rainbow 6 ? If they can't pull it off this time , then it's their faults not ours .
It's hardly something as easy to brush off as some of the current fps' sp .
Are you sure ? Unless my memory is hazy , i remember a multiplayer session with scripted dialogue
Thanks for the info , and one less dilemma , without even the need to try some demo or beta .
I can easily play mp only with some franchises , but i have zero interest in an mp centric rainbow 6 .
Feels like Ubisoft wasted people's time , when it's something you could have said from the get go
Games have been 10 dollars or so cheaper on ps3/360 even at release for quite a few games lately .
Doesnt feel like such a discount there
Ah "journalists" and other medias , always there to defend the interest of their readers /s
But it kinda does invalidate it , even if downgraded , it looks good and current gen , just less so than advertised .
It might have been playable , but it was hardly as if people were on the lookout for issues rather than enjoying the game . It was no case like the Witcher with the occasional stutter , and the game feeling sluggish but fully enjoyable .... at release , Unity started with massive slowdowns , during both cutscenes and playable phases ...
We even saw people failing hard at the tutorial phases because of those slowdowns and the game was incredibly unstable and buggy .
" X seems to be the first one that began to split the Final Fantasy faithful"
Absolutely wrong , many people disliked VIII . You can't expect some unconditional and universal love on each game of the serie , even if some are clearly less popular than the others . Except maybe VII wich was the mainsteam breakout hit for the serie , but even then not as beloved by some older fans
Regardless of that , if it's really broken it will be very easy to notice in the open beta
What's the point of the article now ? We are only like two weeks away from the open beta to judge and see if its broken
