As you can tell from the title of this piece, I have no problem with games that launch with only multiplayer. I liked games like Titanfall and Evolve. I know some are ready to call foul and say a game is nothing without a decent single player to craft its identity and story but I’m here to just say your wrong. First and foremost a game is about the gameplay. The narrative is just a concept that grabs and motives the player to play. Think cops and robbers. However, that is an argument for another day. The real problem is the pricing of these multiplayer only games.
The title of this post pretty much says it all. I’m done paying $60 for a game, especially day one. I have a job that just gets me by and school I pay out of pocket. So like most gamers, there’s not much money to spare.
Games are expensive. Not only that but if you are a console gamer like me, you, unfortunately, have to pay a subscription. It’s better I play the free games I get every month.
A few months ago, in February, I began debating what my next purchase was going to be. Whether I would buy Evolve or The Order: 1886. When it came down to it, I bought Evolve, season and all.
Well now this is a game I can get into. Many have tried the Monster vs Soldier style multiplayer before but none have done it like this one. Failed attempts like the horrible Dead Space 2 multiplayer as well as the abomination that was Aliens: Colonial Marines have left sore taste in our mouths. Evolve just looks fully fleshed out. The 4 vs. 1 gameplay seems to be tense and exciting giving both sides the right qualities that make the game seem evenly match. The hunters have the weaponry to defend themselves and monster are devastatingly power. With talk of different hunters and monsters to play as, this one is definitely exciting.
