I don't understand why the devs missed so hard by not having prope couch coop when this is so important to the style of game. Yes diablo and chaosbane were thinking of you.
I bought inquisitor on xbox for full price on disc (I didn't know about the spring sale and should have waited a day!) Because I read couch coop was now an option and you could play these campaign together.
This hadbeen an autobuy for us on PC until we heard there was no campaign mode. Since then the mrs and I had finished with chaos bane in couch coop.
What I didn't know was that saying the xbox version has couch coop was rubbish and the second player has no agency over their equipment or leveling. What on earth technical barriers were there to this when it works on diablo and the very similar chaos bane?
So I wanted to play with my wife on our sofa and using our projector. We have no TVs and the monitors are in a study.
What I ended up doing was playing one copy of the game on the projector on xbox x. Getting a trail of gold, playing on another xbox one s in multiplayer and streaming that to a laptop for inventory management! What a massive faff. It's also terrible as we get delays getting a server, rubberbanding and massively delayed load times compared to couch coop on the Xbox One X BUT we get agency over levelling and gear. And we are both playing on the same Projector Screen... though one of us can fall off and have to navigate back using the mini map!
Again in a real shame the devs didn't go for proper couch coop and I'll be more careful of any neocore game in th he future.
Its a real shame as other than the huge game ruining experience for me and the mrs.... well the game is much more fun than chaosbane!
Maybe they'll get it right in a sequel?
