I tend to be one to not jump down the throats of developers that put multiplayer in the sequels of games that traditionally single-player affair. I didn’t mind when Dead Space, Mass Effect, or Bioshock got online modes as long as we got a great single-player game (and I think that we for the most part all of these were excellent.) Hell, I even liked some of the multiplayer modes that many gamers complained were “shoehorned in to just to please the COD people.”
Yet when I heard about the upcoming God of War game was introducing a new competitive multiplayer mode, I was exceptionally skeptical. How were they going to make an action hack-and-slash game into a multiplayer game? When I think of the hack-and-slash game, I think of different A.I. type enemies with different abilities that are set that the player needs to adapt to, not players battling each other with similar avatars with similar abilities. How the hell would the guys at Sony Santa Monica make this work?
I have a terrible confession to make; I originally bought Skyrim for my PS3 when it first came out. The only reason I bought it for Sony’s console is because I knew I had more space on it and I hadn’t gotten a PC yet.
So I sloughed through the terribly bug ridden copy for about 30 hours when out of nowhere my save file become corrupted. Fed up with the game I traded it in for a 360 copy (which incidentally enough I sold while trying to get money for my new PC, which I had to rebuy it on steam, yeah I love this game enough to have bought 3 copied.)
I’m hardly alone in camp of buyer remorse for PS3 SKyrim as that version is been more bug filled with the least amount of support. The first two DLC packs were promised to the PS3 crowd but Bethesda has only released it on the other platforms citing that the PS3 version was too messed up to be compatible.
Yet recently, more than a year post-release, Bethesda has said that they are working to update the PS3 version of the game to release the new Dragonborn DLC. They also said that they are still working hard to get the previous DLC to eventually be on the console.
What do you think about this news? Is it too little too late? Did you have a PS3 copy of Skyrim? I personally think that to truly make it up to the PS3 fans, Bethesda should offer one of their DLC packs for free, but that’s just me.
Were starting a new series called “Best game of this Generation.” As the title suggest, were going to each day post what our favorite games of this console generation. We tried only include games that began in this generation so this can be a buyer’s guide for anyone who just bought a current console.
Along with you guys, were going to be watching all the E3 reveals and presentations, check out our top 5 things both of us hope to see this year
