Why in Goods name does every body want multiplayer. I rather enjoy a solid single player game with lots of content then crapy laggy multiplayer thats short on all ends.
Seriously implementing a good functioning multiplayer in games isn't that easy. Its mostly a huge effort of time that could have been spent on so many other things that will do a game better then trying to please a handfull of gamers that cry for multiplayer.
I would be happy with lan multiplayer cause yea if there were 24/7 public servers i wouldnt like that but just for playing with friends trough hamachi i would want that
These are all very good points, but I think I'll have to agree with art on this one.
