Once every publisher realizes that casual people brings in the money they will all make games more casual. If only we could get the same atmosphere in future DSs as the first one had. It seems that ship has sailed big time. Now it's all about co-op and being social. So dissapointing.... And YES I do consider all this every-game-needs-team-up-buddy -social-gaming-with-mics-on a CASUAL thing and it is absolutely BuLLs*it in my honest opinion. I couldn't care less what other people think about this. Go chat it up on facebook or some other casual BS site if you don't like it. I know I am in the minority but why the hell do we have to be able to get connected with our friends with every single site/TV/console/phone we ever buy? Am I really just being old fashioned here or what? I'm 30 and I feel like 60 years old FFS.
I know what you mean. I don't mind it so much if it does not affect the core gamplay or what makes the game great in the first place. But so far the two just don't seem to go together. it's a shame but that is what gaming has become. and when you read stuff like this... seems all hope is lost.
So anything more than single player is "casual" now too. We're going to run out of things to beat our chests over and declare ourselves "hardcore" at this rate.
EA believes that the pre-orders of Dead Space 3 were due to the co-op mode that was introduced? Oh boy...
its just frontloaded. HIghly doubt preorders in summer of 2010 were anthing special for ds2 and crysis 2 respectively
ohhh Dead Space 3 what they done you? Whaaaaaaaat?
I guess a lot of people were happier with Cryteks direction on Crysis 2 than I was.
I found it to be boring
I liked it, much better than the 1st though I have a few issues with it here and there I thinks its the overall better game.
It seems EA fresh approach (if i can call it that) to the DS trilogy is paying off
Oh great, now that they've finally got more pre-orders than their previous games they're just going to follow through their horrible gameplay decisions to appeal to the more casual market. A Dead Space game with a coop partner, cover system and universal ammo just isn't a Dead Space game. And I can't see any difference between Crysis 2 and 3 other than the new bow they put in.
I bought the freakin map packs for crysis 2 and couldn't even get into a game on the new maps because everyone had stopped playing or didn't buy the map packs. I would get stuck in the dlc lobby and finally gave up on it. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.
