    Sadly, no multiplayer = going to be ignored or torrented to hell and back; unless they put it at a very appealing price point, or it gets rediculous amounts pre-launch hype.

    They'd lose my sale if it had multiplayer.

    Why?

    Games like this have the potential for actually good multiplayer. Well... maybe not with these weird AoE/Electricity weapons, but still - it's a tad unfair to lump a good PC shooter like this with the typically 'waste of time' multiplayer of modern console games.

    TBH I think it looks pretty uninteresting, the only part of that video i thought was cool was the upgrade machine and even that was pretty similar to the one in Singularity.

    Graphics are nice but it seems like a waste with just shooting a bunch of boring robots.

    Well to be fair there's not much around about story and what not. We don't know how it starts or the plot or anything. I'm guessing they don't want to reveal too much before launch.

    I'm asking you why you actually think including multiplayer would make you not buy it

    I'll answer for him. Because he assumes that like so many other games they'd just lump in the standard waste of time multiplayer and so it would be a pointless addition any way.

    So a pointless addition would mean you wouldn't buy a game. Just don't play MP perhaps?

    It wouldn't make me not buy it but a pointless addition takes their time to develop and that time could be better spent adding more to the campaign. I'd rather a game with a bit more SP content than a multiplayer that no one will play.

    Yeah, I know - but I sort of already addressed that.

    Looks like a dull HL2 Ggun rip off.....and if it's a PC exclusive, why such lame GFX?

    A la Bioshock 2.

    The multiplayer pundits seem to think that MP is something that just magically happens, and doesn't take any dev time or resources.

    FWH have mentioned the SP is about 20 hours long. With multi, that would probably be cut down by at least half.

    Multi is far too dependent on factors outside the devs' control - the big one would be the community. You also need to provide more post-launch support. I don't think it's good for a new, small dev to have to worry about that.

    Besides, I find it funny that I'm meant to justify my stance against MP, when those questioning me haven't provided much argument in favour of it, other than the generic "Needs multi!" cries and little else. It's nearly as annoying as fuckwits who carp and moan about "no DX11, fail" without thinking about whether or not DX11 is really worth it or necessary. There's some fucked-up semiotics for ya.

    Besides, multiplayer and single player are two entirely different things. One's a sport, and one's an art.

    I've lost count how many times I've played as Steve Blum, talked to Steve Blum or blown Steve Blum's face off in a video game, but I still don't care. Fucking Steve Blum is ace.
