GS News - New Sonic Game Announced + The Order: 1886 Details!

Some Games are best at single Player and Some MP. Not many are good at both. I did enjoy playing Future Soldier Campaign with 4 friends so I'd say I enjoy Co-Op more than MP. The only MP game I enjoy is BF4, the rest I prefer Single or Co-op (most people want more co-op games these days, that's where the fun is for me personally). Although sometimes it nice to chill and enjoy a single player game. Personal Choice.
Personally I'm sick of half-assed, tacked on multiplayer. It can be good and add value, and it can also be pointless garbage. I celebrate any dev that would rather focus on a solid single player campaign than try to please everyone and fail miserably.
I used to be turned off to games that didn't have multiplayer, but honestly as I've grown up I really like single player stories more and more. It's like an interactive novel!
Yeah, it's great to see a developer focusing on the full SP experience rather than tacking on MP for no reason other than to put a bunch of stupid trophies that no one cares about and to get people to play their game until the end of time. MP games should be MP; SP games should stay SP. If you want to cross-over, buy a new game. Finally, a developer that makes sense. Ever wonder why MP-centric games do SP terribly (BF4, CoD, KZ, etc.) and SP-centric games do MP terribly (Tomb Raider, Uncharted, etc.)? Can't stand MP trophies in games that are built to be SP-exclusive experiences. I will never, ever try to get to level 60 in Tomb Raider multiplayer to get all the stupid MP trophies. It's not that I suck, the MP mode is awful and held my interest for maybe 3.5 minutes.
Once upon a Time Some games would come out WITHOUT multiplayer! ahh the good old days.. Next they'll be adding multiplayer to a Final Fantasy game.
..o wait they did (FFXIV)
The peppy Gamespot News music really doesn't pair well with a story about layoffs.
Talk about a mixed bag for Nintendo. A coveted third party exclusive, exactly what they need... but it's yet another colorful, kid friendly game and the characters have been rendered even more cuddly looking than usual. It reminds me of the Simpsons line "We're a family cracker factory. We don't know if single people eat crackers, and frankly we don't want to know". If you are neither under ten nor have a child that age, Nintendo simply isn't interested in your business.
I can always use more Sonic, and Skrillex soundtrack is just an awesome bonus...Wii U is the only next gen console with any games!
The Order: 1886 should be a single player game, period.
The only group of people that want MP in every game are kids and teenagers that dont have money to buy many games, so they want to play one game as long as posible. But obviously we the adults dont care about them, what we do care as gamers is QUALITY, its obvious to any human with IQ above 99 that any game modes, multiplayer, co-op and so on cost MONEY to make.
Games have a set budged, so if this games budged is 20 million and they decide to make multiplayer it means that X number of millions will be wasted on MP instead of making the SP better!!!
Multiplayer is the most useless part if game it has no purpose, instead of enjoying a good story you run around like headless chicken killing other gamers for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
Really excited for The order.One of the co-founders,Andrea Pessino,is also a talented composer.I met him on a forum and tried to get some information about the game from him but he wouldn't budge lol.
The Order just look like another fail attempt of Sony to have a clone of the great Gears of War for PS4, they tried with Uncharted, and failed.
Like i always say, if the game is good, they release for Xbox One. Nobody will play that The Order.
so nice Sonic is bk agin??so lets ask Capcom bout MEGA MAN? Konami bout Contra Castlevania n Konami Collection???
I don't understand, how spinning off a wholly owned subsidiary would improve profits. It's still the same freaking company that owns them and when you consolidate reports, the results will be the same. It's just a structure change and I guess management shuffle, if they even do that. I only see reporting to be the difference. Is there something else to this?
"Tell me what I care about most"
I care about making Jess feel beautiful and appreciated.
There's no greater joy.
Sony, it's madness of course! Seriously though, I'm (and probably almost every reader here) not qualified to evaluate their business decisions. The TV business spinoff did surprise me though, letting go of the PC stuff did not. PCs/laptops in terms of mass market are dying, they'll probably end up a very niche product with very few big companies manufacturing them in a few years. Everyone thinks tablets are so much better, more convenient, etc., and I guess in a lot of ways they are, but personally I still prefer to sit at a desk with a large monitor and a physical keyboard. The idea of Sony focusing on mobile is expected, but I'm not sure they'll do great there anyway, at least not as a frontline consumer brand. I have never even seen a Sony tablet in person, and they seem very overpriced for what they deliver. Phones, I haven't seen a Sony branded phone in ages, not since people had those Sony Ericsson ones many years ago. Hmm, I'm not qualified to say any of that, but I did anyway :P.
Regarding Sonic, I'm not really a fan but I understand people getting upset about it. Plus, when Jess makes a negative comment about Sonic's fashion sense, well it's gotta be a bad move :).
I agree with you on everything but killzone. I haven't played more than 15 minutes of mp on any game ( not really my thing ), but I really enjoy their campaigns.
@omnyoto Don't Play to much or you go blind. Just a little and you'll just need glasses :-)
@Goobshoeriot They did that in 2002 with FFXI...sorry your late to the party.
@Benny_a I'm sorry you don't have any friends.
@Diegoctba what a load of pish
@Diegoctba Listen FanGirl, why would Sony exclusive game come to X1?
@Diegoctba they failed with uncharted? WTF are you talking about.Uncharted is a very successful franchise and much better than Gears of war.You haven't even seen gameplay footage of The order and you are comparing it with gears of war.Either trolling or stupid.Not sure which...
@Diegoctba One, sort your F@CKING GRAMMAR OUT!! before you type ( or probably speak ) two, I have all platforms and enjoy what each has to give, three, you are a PATHETIC FAN BOY ( BABY ), TROLL AND SIMPLE MINDED FOOL........NUFF SAID!!!
@Diegoctba Agreed 100%
@ACMC85 Nope, it's just accounting hocus pocus. It shields their gaming division from being liquidated to pay debts on other areas if things got really bad, which is good news for us, but that's it.
@hystavito "Regarding Sonic, I'm not really a fan. . ."
I'm not a fan unless they have Ulala in the game.
Tails is good too. I love cats.
@hystavito You maybe more qualified than you think. I completely agree with you on most of those things. I think where microsoft was going with the Tablet as screen and keyboard attachment is where we'll be heading eventually. I hate working with a tablet currently and the typing takes forever.
@hystavito I'm still waiting for a "Sparta" joke to happen.
Interesting point about laptops going out of style. I think you're right about mobile and low power computing devices being more convenient, but I suggest that programmers will still prefer their own laptops. More mobile than a desktop and more capable than a tablet.
