[EG] Portal 2 DLC Out This Summer. - Page 9

post #81 of 92
I'll buy it, no matter what the price. I'm a sucker for Portal and I'm sure whatever the content is it will be well worth whatever amount I have to pay or not have to pay. Thanks Frick for posting it here so I could see some discussion, I saw this on the news part under Portal 2 on Steam and gasped at the excitement.

Is Portal 2 going to be a game that you play on a daily or even weekly basis? No. However, that doesn't mean that both the single player and multiplayer element aren't worth the price of admission.

People these days are so obsessed with how long a game is. Who gives a damn if a game is 30 hours long if its terrible? Portal 2 offers around 10-12 hours of total playtime, and every second of that is fantastic. What more do you want?
most games that cost full price offer something more than just an 8-12 hour long story.

They often include a multiplayer that can be played more than once.

I'm not hating on the game, i didnt buy it because it has zero replay value, and i want something more than what Portal offered.

They could have revolutionized multiplayer with the portal guns. Could you imagine an interesting competitive game that involved nothing but portal guns. Say 2vs2 where each team tries to get across a goal line using portals, and the other team can dislodge the ball by getting the other play to fall through their portal. ETC, they could have done so much with multiplayer that did not involve shooting each other.

Had they done something like that, i woud have purchased it.

lol. Agreed.

I will not pay for this DLC, and portal 2 was one of the best games i've played. It will probably be free though knowing valve.

Of course.
Look what they've done with TF2.
They must have given us around $700 worth of extra content with all the new weapons, maps, and various other tidbits.

That's true. I really hope so. Not sure what they can do with this DLC though. Really hoping it will be more co-op maps.

Not to mention the INCALCULABLE value of immolating any semblance of balance or cohesiveness.

Release the SDK and an ability to play custom maps and all shall be at peace.

once you solve the puzzle doesnt that make going through it again boring.
The DLC is likely going to be more Co-op packs. I can't imagine there's any way for DLC to work without some enormous retcons if they try to slip it into the singleplayer.
