Long time reader who finally decided to make an account. Student at NC State University, and lover of games.
I’ve already purchased a PS4, I bought it at launch and don’t have a single regret. I’ve been happy with it playing BF4 as well as AC4. So I’ve already got one next gen console to fulfill my needs.
My PC is plenty powerful, as I am an avid PC gamer. I’d rather have it on PC where it runs/looks better than the Xbox version. But I would be willing to sacrifice the visual fidelity for a local multiplayer experience.
I guess I’ll just keeping eagerly awaiting the launch of Tower Fall (two words? Can’t remember…) to satisfy my local MP needs.
Why do I faintly recall someone finding hints of it within the pc code during beta? Shame.
If Titanfall turns out to have local multiplayer, I might just have to jump on this purchase. I wasn’t planning on getting this console for a while, but I’ve been dying for some good same-box multiplayer to play with my friends. Between this and Plants vs Zombies, the local MP with Titanfall could push me over. Fingers crossed. If there isn’t any local MP I’ll just pick it up on pc when it goes on sale eventually.
PC (of course :p)
No matter how many games I start, and little I finish, every game is different. A seemingly impersonal game finds a way to become personal; especially when playing with friends. I’ll forever love this game.
Look no further than this chair here. It replaces your typical chair padding with bungee cords. What does that mean? It means it’s super comfy, and never goes flat. (The problem I always had with my computer chairs) I’ve had mine for over a year now, and it still feels like the day I first got it… Surprisingly. Much Recommends.
The bots are a really neat addition; especially for new players. I ran my 30 ft HDMI cord across the room the other day and had the beta up on the big screen, my sister walked by and watched for a little. We ended up passing the controller back and forth for about an hour or so. She enjoyed the free running, and killing the bots made her feel a sense of accomplishment she doesn’t normally get from the more “hardcore” fps games. Although, she play a ton of Halo in her spare time… So she might be the exception rather than the rule. Regardless, it’s a welcome step in a different direction for the fps genre.
Totally agree. Those moments where you walk in on two grunts duking it out, and then save your fellow Bot teammate, give the game a neat sense of perspective. Most certainly blurring the lines between SP/MP gameplay. Those moments make me forget that I’m playing a multiplayer game (in a good way.)
I also enjoy that they do give you vocal queues to your surroundings. If there’s an enemy pilot nearby they call it out, sometimes alerting me when I didn’t even notice. It’s the little things..
