  • Woah
  • Can't wait for the drive home! Got a question, and it concerns split screen options. Just wanted your thoughts. Games seem to be neglecting, what once was, a staple of any multiplayer game. My kids live split screen multiplayer. Brings a family together and helps foster social gaming, and good social gaming behaviour. During parties, kids and adults would routinely play against each other for bragging rights. I even had some good man parties back in the day. Modern games seem to neglect this, which is a real sad omission in my opinion.
  • Agreed, adding this to the list of topics to discuss.
  • Nice one.... Also, is it me or did you mention Singularity two weeks on the trot?
