8 player vs. mode? Are you fucking high? The one game I was certain was safe from multiplayer douchery is now tainted.

|Seriously, why add multiplayer to this game? Its like MP in Assassin's Creed. They just made the purchase decision very very easy for me, just like Ubisoft did when they added the idiotic MP in AC. No thanks. |

|i usually understand where people come from in not wanting multiplayer (whereas IMO Multiplayer just adds to games never takes away) But while i may not be the biggest slasher fan. Multiplayer slasher games are the only ones i enjoy. and this is possibly now the ONLY reason im remotely interested in the game now. still wont get it but its the type of game i think multiplayer REALLY adds to it. |

|Don't see the point in multiplayer for this at all. Brutal difficulty's sort of a selling point for Ninja Gaiden, and that simply can't be done in MP. Sounds like yet another marketing checkbox job. |

|If this follows any other recent gaming trends, NG3 will have zombies, brown and bloom graphics, un-needed multiplayer (already a check), toned down violence for the kiddies (yep), and finally a "darker story". Hopefully the game is still challenging and fast paced. I have a feeling team ninja is aiming for a "call of duty" audience though at this point. |

|It is ridiculous that the industry has gone the path of every game MUST have MP. Biopshock 2 was the end of the true single player game. Then Dead Space 2, Assassins Creed and now this? I hate it. I wouldnt care if achievements were NOT a part of the 1000g AND they put MP on another disc, aka Battlefield 3 AND Guarantee me the development doesnt take away from the development of the SP campaign cause i believe that it does, aka CoD the last 5 years ! |

Have to say I am intruiged & excited for MP options.
Particularly like those MP masks & special techniques, & there was an evil team killing screenshot in there with the technique named as 'No honour Amongst Ninja'... Aweseome sauce etc.
Skyrim, Batman & Tropico 4 will fill the gap nicely until then me thinks.

|Heaven forbid a developer wants to try something new. Heaven forbid you wait to see gameplay footage or even try it out before you pass judgement, instead of freaking out every time a series announces MP. |
You know, for an industry that's all about change and innovation, you guys sure seem to be afraid of it.

It's like putting campaign to BF3, look how that turned out.
Anywho's I'm more sad about the overall shitness that NG3 will become single-player wise.
The katana only system with no OT and a new emphasis on QTE is horrific.
The "walk to stealth" mechanic and the "I'm a fire dragon" nimpo looks poor in execution espicially combined with the shit new moral system this game has.
"I've got a family,mate" not only do it take the piss out of terrorist, londoners and even ninjas. Does it take the piss out of it's own game.
You've killed enough dogs, fiends, wild beast etc to start caring about the feelings of someone who doesn't just want to kill you, but terrorist who beg for their lives. In comparison to Ninja Gaiden 2 where you actually have enemies that sacrifice limbs just to put a scratch on you.
This game is a downgrade in every way from what is shown. From the gameplay, to the storyline and even silly gimmicks such as kunai climb.
The visuals aren't impressive either, with the blood and locales being astonishingly basic. The linear direction is even more apparent then NG2, a further step back.
Enemies shown so far have such as the multi-rocket ninjas are unwelcomed recast and made worse with the added splash damage. The slide replacing the wind run [dodge] makes little sense in gameplay and praticallity.
The "sword on bone" crap is simply SHIT. It slows down gameplay further and is a short-term visual gimmick. The sorry excuses that Hayashi makes that this game is centered on "more realistic killing" yet has taken away decaptation and loss of limbs is incredible inconsistant and goes to show how full of shit this man is.
Argh. I'm a big fan on the NG series but based on gameplay trailers and what's been given to fans so far. This looks like a piece of shit. The only upside is that the story emphasis is on the NES classic NG lines but even then this game just looks like it sucks.
March is too soon, especially how they said they were 30% done at their 1st announcement and now they are putting more emphasis on the PS3 and Wii U thanks to the PS move support and Wii U launch line-up. The lack of Kinect support to it's counter-part is no surprise as we all know Hayashi is a PS3 fanboy as Itagaki was an xbox fan beforehand.
Also based on his previous works of sigma on the PS3 does it show that he puts more emphasis in grinding up HP on ememies instead of making them tougher less of a Lost planet style grind to kill enemeies.
Lastly to be on-topic. Networking on this game will suck. Significantly due to their track records on sigma, which was 2 player. They could'nt even get that right. Very few japenese game in general do multiplayer connections decently. Espcially since the majority of Team Ninja's NG2 team left with Itagaki, the former director. The merge with Koei makes this worse as now there will be dynasty warrior influences in NG. Which is a game game on it's own rights but does not belong.
Anyways I ranted enough. Basically this game will be shit based on what has been shown, but I'm really do hope it turns out well. I'll wait to actually say "this game is utter shit" until the game comes out If not then :)

|I haven't seen a multiplayer like this before, it could actually work really well and be fun, as long as it doesn't lag. Nobody gives chances to games now, if they see a game that used to be only singleplayer has multiplayer, they instantly say 'shit, doesn't need it, games ruined', all I say to that is.... |
1) The game still has singleplayer, why are you angry about it?
2)It could work, give it a chance.
I understand some games are brilliant without multiplayer, but you never know if adding it could bring something brilliant to the mix, just give it a chance for fuck sake.

|Sounds good to me, it could end up being something totally unique and fun like Assassin Creeds MP. Remember people, you don't have to play the MP, even if they add MP achievements you can still enjoy the SP. If you can't play a game without having to get all the achievements and aren't happy unless you do, that's your problem not the developers. Games are made for everyone and not a niche crowd that has to have the game their way or they throw a fit. |
@27 No, you're ASSUMING it detracts from the single player. Take for instance Bioshock 2, so many people say it wasn't as good as the 1st Bioshock because they added MP and took resources away from SP. Which isn't the truth, 2K Games had 2 development studios working on it, one for SP and one for MP, it didn't take any resources from the SP. People like to blame stuff on MP because they don't like MP and don't have any clue about how games are developed.
@31 They aren't saying every game needs MP. They are saying don't jump to conclusions about anything yet, no one knows anything about the MP right now. It could be great instead of what most people are ASSUMING it will be.
