Asphalt 5 so far is doing a great job, it even maintains mixing of bots alongside human racers around the world, with graphics astonishingly similar to single player.

Currently learning iMaschine and Garage Band.

Still have to get Asphalt, but I hope Modern Comabat's online is good... I'm anticipating that much.

I think that MC: Sandstorm/Nova online multiplayer will be excellent. And the best thing is, we probably won't have to buy/wait for energy

I think it bodes very well for NOVA, although I'm still not certain I believe they will update MC:S with multiplayer. I've seen the tweets but am still skeptical because I feel that it would cannibalize potential sales for NOVA. MC:S has done very well, lot of people own it, and if they update it with multi-player, what incentive do people have to buy Nova? They will just play MC:S because they already have it. If multi-player is a feature exclusive to NOVA I think a lot more people are going to buy it, especially for the fact that there is likely no energy cell/payment system.

*I* would still by Nova. It's like the reason why people would buy call of duty and halo. They can still be very different games.

Gameloft, please go through with the multiplayer!

Otherwise I'll just soak in a hot bath and cry for the rest of my life.

The last I heard was that they ARE including online multiplayer - I'm pretty sure they even confirmed it

Anyway, I am pretty confident that they well. They are perfectly capable of it (just look at Asphalt 5) and they do kinda need to include it to compete with Eliminate. So yeah, I'm like 99% sure they will include it.
