Hopefully a second (third, fourth) player will be able to play locally online without having a seperate Xbox Live account. You could do this before but the 2nd player could only be guest and it did not save progress....hopefully this version you will be able to play AND save progress online with other people.
Game developers are scared to death to make anything hard to figure out anymore (not sure why this is ) since all the young generation gameboys mostly don't even try to figure it out before looking it up on a PC or watching a cheat walkthrough. An example is the Recent Tomb Raider release (which I thought was a fantastic reboot BTW). When I realized the game had optional tombs...I immediately thought (this is gonna be an amazing puzzle that will be every bit as hard or much harder than Assasin's creed 2's optional tombs. However, they were very simple and way too easy. They did look visually awesome however.
I bought a copy of the original RE in the summer of 1996 when I first bought my Playstation at a used game store. a used PS and Resident Evil, Loaded, and maybe "magic carpet" or some crazy flying carpet sim......it was all like $235 bucks. The PS wouldnt even play RE in certain parts because of major skipping. I ended up never finishing the game because of that. When RE2 was released it rejuvenated my thirst for the game. I ended up playing RE:Director's cut for weeks (maybe months).
yeah but how many games can you walk through the whole massive map in your head? Dark souls...I can see each room in my sleep and the way to get there. I would love to see a 3D interactive map of that game.
