VelocityGamer Writes: Now Mass Effect 3 is on the chopping block to tack on multiplayer and it's time to make the case for separating these conjoined twins for their own health.

Not every game needs to have multiplayer...of any kind.
I don't need to battle people online, I don't need other to join in on my quest and most importantly, I don't need it degrading the quality of single player by taking away valuable resources; Time, Money, etc.

I'd rather have coop missions in ME3 than the planet scanning from ME2. From the ign article it looks like it's gonna be replacing that in one way or another since your end goal is easier or different if you do the coop missions but you can skip it if you want.

Exactly I.E Lost Planet 2 (single player is crap), so as F.e.a.r 3 (single player is disappointing)

Yeah singleplayer just bores me personally .

Single player and multiplayer hybrids like Demon's Souls and Dark Souls proves that you can have both simultaneously.

Ya? And how many games like that are around?

Oh u edited your comment..

Yes, I thought that bit was unneeded. Gotta respect opinions.

Too bad Dark Souls MP is such a broken mess.

TheObserver2566d ago

That I got to admit. Demon's Souls system was better. They messed up this time with the random server designation and causing lag when people are on the opposite end of the earth.


I didn't liked Demon's Souls MP any better... I have the platinum for it, but quite frankly I did 90% of it offline!

When you want some Co-Op you need to wait to be picked up or wait for some Blue to drop a stone. It can take too much time, specially since servers are broken down by region of the copy and much more lately since many people simply stopped playing, those who still play focus more on PvP.

When you wanted to have a friend in your session you needed to assemble a meeting in some place no one else will disturb, you two need to be around the same level and if anything goes wrong you have to start over... I just wanted some friendly multiplayer, not a date! LOL

And we should be able to choose when to PvP. I know there are Red Stones for that, but Black Phantoms are party crashers... Just when you are focusing on PvE, some PvP dedicated build invades and even when you get around killing them, you waist time and resources doing so, just to get invaded again... It's a good concept, but annoying after sometime. We should be able to turn it off at least.

It's just my opnion through... I guess it's great for people who like MMORPGs.

I say that mp-games like bf and cod drop the campaigns to put resources into the useful part. Their sp's are afterthoughts.

And sp games need to drop the mp like ME and Deadspace to make the campaigns longer.

Eh, different strokes for different folks. I don't mind multiplayer in a normally single player game as long as it's all done with quality like Uncharted 2 and comparable games. Similarly, I don't mind a decent single player on a normally multiplayer game like the upcoming BF3. If devs think they can half ass one, the other or both, it's time to start voting with your wallet and let them know how unhappy you are buy not buying their products. As long as people keep eating the crap, they will keep shoveling it at you.
