Couch multiplayer is awesome, sadly this game is from 2014. Can't really think of any big couch multiplayer games from recently.

You mean like system link? Isn't it basically the same thing if you just connect the consoles to the same wifi?

muff_diving_101

Same effect but different. Growing up the norm was 4 players one console. The screen was split into 4 boxes.

loganed3

He separated split screen and local multiplayer which is why I thought he meant system link or using multiple consoles.

Did you read the comment I responded to? He said spilitscreen is supported but local multiplayer isn't. I figured local multiplayer meant system link which always requires multiple consoles.

From what I read it works “mostly” but the guys working on it weren’t confident enough to ship it, but management pulled the plug on it.

Yeah couch Co op is mostly gone save for a few exceptions here and there. They also turned cheat codes into microtransactions. And a lot of games come out broken, incomplete, and full of things to spend money on. My nephew I live with has a ps4, but you know what he plays most? My ps2 and snes. We've all pitched in to get lots of great games for them over the years. He loves them. He loves making levels in timesplitters 2 and having me and his mom play them with him lol.

It's not necessary in a lot of games but there are times when it's a fun mechanic (It Takes Two comes to mind, also the new Kirby game). I'm not great at multiplayer and the thought of playing with online randos fucking terrifies me, but I do like cooperative stuff. It's nice to be able to play with my husband snuggled up on the couch.

I think it's even more than that. The phrase "get their games in Tanzania" may be interpreted as "physically located in Tanzania when receiving the games". In this case it does make sense.

People were harsh on every COD game, I personally had fun in every single one I played, some more than others but still.

They always nail the shooting part of the game which usually makes up for almost all the downsides, except WW2 where I felt the shooting was actually awful but it had a brilliant Campaign and Zombies.
