On this solo yet sophisticated edition of EBC we discuss the dynamics of making exclusively single player vs. multiplayer games. Plus, Irrational shuts down, The Order: 1886 debuts (kinda), a resolution for Ground Zeroes, Harmonix makes and FPS and much, much more!
TOPIC: GOING SOLO - In an ironic twist, many of today’s games are going the single-player-only route while others, like Titanfall, are focusing exclusively on mutilpayer. With that in mind, Team EBC discusses the merits of making a game that’s focused on one or the other while evaluating the current need to include both components in every product.
I’m starting to gain interest in the Vita for the reasons you guys mentioned, but even more so for recent developments in the Vita exclusives library and the PS4/PS Vita cross-platform functionality.
Although, I have enjoyed both Borderlands and God of War prior to Vita, I would still like to pick one up to play the increasingly popular and critically acclaimed Tearaway, as well as interesting exclusives such as Persona 4 Golden, the recent arcade shooter: TxK, and the somber RPG: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
Add to that, the PS4 cross-platform features, the wonderful Playstation Plus model, and a powerful handheld experience, and you will find a great piece of hardware finally hitting its stride. I find it hard not to own one soon.
