why do games need online mp ?
it takes away from single player

It didn't take away from Echoes.
However, it was such a throwaway feature that any resources used for it probably could have been used to make Echoes even better.

Fact is, if Nintendo wants a multiplayer killer app, it needs to reboot GEIST or create a new IP.


You just said it didn't take away from it and then in the next breath proved it likely did. Opportunity costs are real. The fact is a lot of us would prefer games not add a multiplayer that is only there as something a publisher can mark off the checklist of what a modern game needs to have. If a game isn't CoD or Halo or some other heavy hitter then the online community is pitiful anyway. At least if a game is multi only it would get more dedicated multiplayer enthusiasts in the door for a more highly polished and quality multiplayer experience. Look at Assassins Creed. ACII is still the best. Know what it didn't have? Multiplayer. Know what kept ACIII from being an excellent game? Lack of overall polish specifically in the single player campaign. You have to think that gets ironed out better if the mediocre online isn't there. Has a game had both and been good? Yes. Has a game had both and been excellent? Yes. Is that what happens most of the time? Hell no.


So this automatically makes it the multiplayer fault? Never mind you had a large game with possibly hundreds of thousand collision boxes, a brand new engine, easy larger areas than previous entrees, and way more content (like navy battle, new weapons, and more). So we have tons of new stuff and the multiplayer is to blame. Yea right.

I said that Echoes' multiplayer did not take away from its single player.

I also speculate that if multiplayer was scrapped, the time and effort used to create it could have been used to make the already great single player even better.

The remainder of my post is largely in line with your wall of text.

Please learn to read toward comprehension next time.

Confirm

Nintendo needs their resident FPS online as well. I have faith in Retro to pull it off. I just don't like how long it may take.

Only if they have a separate team handle the multiplayer. I have no interest in multi but as long as Retro isn't forced to cut time out of their schedule to shoehorn it in then I say let it come!

D because they'll probably screw up the controls like they did for Metroid Prime and the Metroid mini-game in Nintendo Land.

Corruption is very far from being trash: It's a very well designed game that manages to capture the spirit of Metroid pretty well, and it's just bursting with originality and creativity.

I would say that Echoes is superior to Prime in most aspects, and it's also a very creative game.

I like all three about equal, though.



this..

I thought this guy was trolling because (for me) Echoes was better than prime


(haven't played Corruption, I know shame on me)

What was wrong with the controls in Metroid Prime?
