How does it seem like it's dying? Do you have the numbers of how many players are playing the game currently? Because if you do, I'd love it if you shared it with us.


Forums are losing activity, many of my friends have moved on, and ND hardly ever communicates. It will never die, people will surely be playing it years to come. Even i'll still drop in occasionally. I should have said dwindling significantly, not dying. It has, however, lost it's chance at ever being the ps3's go to multiplayer. To answer your question, no, i do not have the player numbers. Quite an absurd question.

I have to agree, I haven't seen much on ND's part lately to actually keep the MP alive. Communicating here in the forums on a regular basis would be a great start, just seems they're putting minimal effort to grab our attention.

I've moved on, been playing Resident Evil 6. Despite the reviews I'm having a blast. Also picked up Dishonored today Smiley Tongue

People are back in school/occupied in their studies, along with people having JOBS. Forums getting less activity is expected.

 

It's Fall and Winter is coming. This time of the year, MANY new games are being released and people want to take time to play those, usually ignoring the forums as well. Again, expected.

 

ND has hardly communicated anyway and the game is still going strong. Point is irrelevent.

 

I'm pretty sure every game being released for 1 year would lose the potential to be the "go-to multiplayer." Again, expected. The game is old.

 

Yes, the numbers are dwindling. All because of the stuff I said or people just aren't huge fans of the game. All expected.

 

Everything you said has been expected or has always been, yet the game is still strong in my eyes.

Is there anything good coming out? I'd get NFS if EA didn't screw up the whole series...

Borderlands 2 (already out!)

Resident Evil 6 (see above)

Dishonored (just came out I believe)

Assassin's Creed III

Playstation All Stars Battle Royale

CoD: BO II (if you're into this kind of game)

Halo 4 (if you have an Xbox)

Anything on Wii U if you really want to buy it in November.

 

Should keep you occupied. Smiley Wink

I can acknowledge everything you said. You reply as if I'm an advocate against the game. On the contrary, i wish more people were playing it ( I wish more still played U2, but that's another story). Yes, i understand that other activities and games can deter player count (you condescend by capitolizing "JOBS", as if i could afford to play games without one). I merely made a casual observation based on my own perception. I wasn't arguing or attempting to break new ground. I will, however, respectfully disagree with your claim that ND's lack of communication would not drive away players. I know many who have left for that reason. In those cases with those people, it was a matter of "If ND doesn't care for it's game/ fans, why should I?".

To be released SOON™, as we all know. 

 

I see ALOT of people moving on from UC3, including myself, which makes me a little sad *snif, snif*.  Boarderlands 2 has captured many a gamer. 

 

It really is sad that UC3's run was not as stellar as UC2's.  Do you think that has anything to do with working on two games a the same time (UC3 and TLOU)?  Also, I did not think the game would fizzle THIS MUCH by the 1 year mark.  UC2's formula, IMHO, appears to be better, less gimmicky, and simple.  The simplicity kept you playing an entire 2 years until this stinker was released. 

 

Oh well.  I got my value out this game (definitly more than $100 worth).  So, over all, from an entertainment factor, I should not complain.  In my eyes tho, this game could have bee SO MUCH BETTER at retail release. On to the 1 year countdown for TLOU, and before that, it will be time to move on to other titles.  NDI screwed the pooch on this one, from the start.

"Stinker"?  Harsh bro.  I myself would love to get into a new game, but now is not the time.  Everyone has all kinds of stuff going on, and gaming should take a backseat to real life, sad but true.  I've never understood to "go to multiplayer" thing.  I guess for Xbox that's Halo?  Seems that for the PSN there's a variety, Uncharted is just one fish in the pond.

 

I really loved UC2's simplicity as well, but if they had just done that this time around people would be howling about how they didn't innovate.  I'm still enjoying myself, still on the forums, lurking mainly but posting occasionally, no time.  Looking towards 2013, tons of game coming out I'm really excited about.  Happy that I made some friends from here to play with when those come out.

 

Bring on Classic Mode, maybe I'll finally get to see what all the hype was about on the old forum.Woman Frustrated
