The announcement of Mass Effec 3's multiplayer mode has been met with strong resistance from both the gaming community and even some games press. Is this fan and journalist apprehension justified?
As long as it's done right I don't see what the problem is.
I agree. If it is done well and compliments the single player - rather than take away from - i dont see a problem. BioWare Montreal is handling the MP, so the original Studio is still doing the single player we all know and love. That at least, is a good sign.
As long as it does go the way of Resident evil 5 im fine with it..... I always thought that MP would fit ME, one person could be Shepard while two friend could be the squad mates, that way only one person controls the Story.... Although i know the MP wont be like that, the more ways tto play the better But the concern is justified, Some companies' game's Single player campaign will dwindle in quality just so they can get that "Online Multiplayer" on the Box
Online Passes So No
Mass Effect 2 had an online pass and didn't have a multiplayer section.
Mass Effect 2's online pass sucked.
"Is Fan Concern Justified?" Of course, people have been with this franchise since the start. I think people calling it and worrying shouldn't be called "whinners" or "crybabies"...there just big fans who care about a franchise and worry incase the third game ends up being crap with the multiplayer.
Well, the ones who aren't raging lunatics hell bent on proving their superiority over "fanboys" who don't agree with every conjecture and baseless assumption they make, shouldn't be called names. Quite a bit of the "strong resistance" is nothing more than people hating change. It generally becomes apparent when they devolve into slavering beasts and explode into a fit of rage whenever someone tries to have a civilized debate about it.
/care if it's in or not as long it isn't the single player studio doing it it's fine it won't change a thing
How many more of these do we really need? http://n4g.com/news/866384/... http://n4g.com/news/865150/... http://n4g.com/news/864201/...
multiplayer isnt whats making me pass, its the fact its hardly an rpg. Its basically an action adventure
I've said it before so I won't say it again. Actually I will. With market saturated with online games why does a Single Player immersion based RPG need any kind of multiplayer. I'd rather have extra single player content. I know people will say there is already loads, but what is wrong with wanting more of what makes Mass Effect so good.
Woo hoo multiplayer in this rich universe just sweet news im totally rapt.
I think this is being done the right way and it makes sense. If you don't want to play it then you can still enjoy the entire SP and still get the best ending, or you can team up with a friend and do missions to help your SP story. Sounds sweet to me. I was worried about a competitive MP.
I agree, I think if it's done right it could be awesome. As long as it's not a tacked on feature, I'm cool with it.
