What is with the lack of local coop these days?

Legos Marvel Super Heroes

They don't make them because they have to sacrifice graphics to make split screen. I love local split screen to play with the wife but unless its sports or legos you're screwed.


halo 4 has decent graphics and split screen the real reason then don't longer made them is greed what is better 4 players for every game sold or 1 player for every game sold financially i can't dispute it morally in the other hand ...

as far as i can see we need a new AAA collapse so the new guys can shine guys that havent forgotten the soul of the games


It's worth noting on older xboxes, splitscreen in multiplayer would really make it chug. Kinda have to expect that when rendering the game 4 times at once, though.

PvZ Garden Warfare has local co-op for its horde mode.


Was looking forward to it, but an 'arcade' game for 40?

It seems to have more content than your avg arcade game.
I agree it's a risky buy though.

Yeah we love Gears and Halo as they have the best splitscreen campaign, im glad they are still making them! Although lets see them take splitscreen out for the sequels >.<


Rest assured that Halo will have splitscreen.

Gears isn't as sure, but it is a pretty safe bet.

Playing Earth Defense Force with a buddy on my 360 at the moment, for the first minute I was contemplating ejecting the disc and tossing it in the trash, the graphics are just that bad. Then by the second minute we are literally both screaming at each other, planning strats and generally having more fun than we have had with a game in a long time. Stupid, ridiculous fun and this is from someone who doesnt often fall for anything "retro". Just found out the new one drops on the 18th of this month too!

why allow couch co-op when they can sell you another console? or even add it in later behind a gold paywall

Still waiting for Peggle 2 local co-op mode. Annoying.

It's dissapointing to be sure... It's almost like there's no reason to have a second controller anymore... I guess they figure more people will buy it if that's the only way they can play together.

It seems Microsoft and Nintendo have the opposite problems on their ends. One had a ton of games that'd benefit from local multiplayer but are online only, and Nintendo has a bunch of games that'd benefit from online but are local only.
