[Kotaku] Valve ‘Probably’ Done With Single-Player Games - Page 19

Thank you. IMHO, Episode 1 would have been awesome if a player could optionally take control of Alyx or Dog. Valve is awesome because they can put an awesome story in a FPS format which normally lacks much story depth. Valve just churned out an INCREDIBLE FPS that doesn't even have a traditional gun.

I for one have faith in Valve. Is anything they make NOT gold? As long as they don't scrap Episode 3, they can do whatever they want.

The guys at Valve know what they're doing. Instead of taking away form the SP experience they're only looking to enhance it. At an amateurs guess I'd say it would be optional co-op, possibly with the second player taking control of Alyx.

Also.. just a rumour. Don't knock Valve just yet.

Mw2 has a better storyline which is actually more plausible in todays world as opposed to another cliched alien invasion with stupid dog robots running around.

doesnt bother me as long they mean there future games will have co-op thru the game without having to wait for some one to make a co-op mod.

I like the idea of doing Half-Life Co-Op if they do it like a BlueShift/OpposingForce type game. Or if they do it like Portal 2 (with an entirely separate story.)

Well, looks like the last Valve game I'll buy is Portal 2. When it's on sale.
post #188 of 218
No biggie, it will still have a single player aspect, however you will have the option of allowing users to join you, I would imagine something like in Resident Evil 5.

You deserve to lose every bit of rep for that. MW2 has nothing on Half-Life 2. How many games have you seen that have gameplay and storyline similar to MW2, a lot. Any as good as Half-Life 2, very few.

Are you serious? Compare:
http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/Half-Life_2_storyline
with
http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/MW2

If you actually read them, HL2 is much better, and no anyway, it doesnt need to be realistic, its a game. Anyway MW2's plot is not plausible, the premise is; fighting terrorism. Everything else would NOT happen, so dont complain about HL2 when you can put the complained against MW2.
Anyway this is pointless, I just find it hard to believe how.. silly you are.
MW2 is.. yet again, gunning and running, its a re-hash with few extras like a snowmobile of all the other CODs.
