With the holiday season coming up, what are some good multiplayer games to play with friends and family (that they can easily pick up and play without too much learning)?
Here's what I can think of so far:
Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls (Old gen and new gen consoles) Not the easiest game to jump in, but really fun in couch co-op.
Divekick (PS3, PC, Xbox One, PS4)
Jackbox Party Pack (PS3, PC, Xbox One, PS4)
Nidhogg (PC, PS4)
Rayman Legends (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4)
Speulunky (Xbox360, PS3, PC, PS4) (It's not easy at all, but the people I've played with love how hard it is)
Trine 2 (PC, PS4 & 360)
PC (I don't know how many people have PC's hooked up to Tvs, but these games probably work on laptops with HDMI out)
LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS3 & PS4)
Xbox One (I don't have an Xbox One, but I'll put recommendations here)
Halo: Master Chief Collection
Mario Kart 8
Nintendo Land (specifically Mario Chase and Luigi's Ghost Mansion)
Super Mario 3D World
Super Smash Bros.
Wii U Sports Club (although people who've played Wii Sports might be tired of it)
I enjoyed Part 1 and have a huge backlog of games to play from Steam sales, so it's not a big deal to me that they're taking the time to make a good game, even if it's coming out late.
And even then, Evolve and Witcher 3 get pushed back by six months, and games like Hale, Drive Club, and Assassin's Creed get released as broken messes.
I would definitely hate Broken Age Part 2 if it was rushed out this year and had tons of glitches.
While there's no way Toy Story 4 can live up to Toy Story 3's ending to the series, if it's going to happen, then I'll just try to enjoy it. I'm don't think they'll be able to hit all those emotions I felt when watching Toy Story 3.
May 4, 2018: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1
July 6, 2018: Captain Marvel
November 2, 2018: The Inhumans
May 3, 2019: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2
I love that they're doing a Captain Marvel and Inhumans movie. I wonder how connected these 4 movies will actually be, since I'm guessing a lot of movie goers will just see Avengers: IW Part 1 and then Avengers: IW Part 2, and skipping Captain Marvel and The Inhumans. Also the release date for Avengers: IW Part 1 and Captain Marvel seems very close to have movies that are too closely connected.
I play a PG, so my experience is very different, but I've found that I can rebound just fine without investing in the rebounding attribute. So you could try investing in inside scoring, where you can post up, or jump shooting, where you can hit some long 18 footers. I had a post up player in a previous 2k game, and even if I missed a shot, as long as I had the close spacing and timed the post fadeaway right, the game would say good shot.
I'm also on the Sacramento Kings and have found them to be pretty crappy teammates. They'll need way more space than necessary to shoot the open jump shot while the AI you play against will hit jumpers with a man right on them.
I find it interesting that in 21 pages this thread, like all discussions relating to gamergate, barely touches on media ethics at all. Apart from when people throw those same few accusations at Zoe that have never been proof of anything really. Reading this thread and the twitter hashtag almost the entire effort of gamergate at this points seems to be about trying to manage the image of gamergate. The movement seems more obsessed with perpetuating and justifying itself than actually discussing or addressing any real issues. A huge amount of time and effort goes into attempting to discredit those critical of gamergate but very little time on exposing any of the ethical problems that are supposedly at the heart of the discussion. To me it feels like what gamergate is actually about is defending gamergate.
I'm not even sure what ethical concerns gamergate is fighting for now. Has there been anything in the games media that's been corrupt in the last two months?
