Yes, and in co-op games with my friends we usually try and win.

Good thing I've got a big friends list and a couple of friends I know I could trust to play seriously.

Without the friends system though, yeah, co op Portal would suck

i swear if i can i will do that!
The first thing i thought when i read "other player will be able to go through each others portals" was "YES I GET TO ♥♥♥♥ WITH PEOPLE!!!!!"

lol

I'm always a victim of griefing :(

I guess the only way to fix that is to grief first. IT"S ON.

That's not how it works though, each person has their individual portal gun. So there's two sets of portals.

Darth Silver

Needs to be seriously monitored. If someone is being a ♥♥♥♥♥♥, you can report them. If someone is reported enough, they can be temporarily suspended from the game. If they keep being a ♥♥♥♥♥♥, they can be banned.

According to some info I read today both people will be in control of 2 portals and although you still need to work together its not going to be as bad as I 1st thought with people griefing.

Just incase people want to read it for themselves ( it probably has been posted already somewhere ) look here....

n/m , removed link as it appears it was posted before and moderators removed it so I guess they dont want people to see it just yet.

I don't think it would work well unless you caught them off guard since, you know, a person can normally see where the portal exits to.

DarkBucket
03-07-2010, 11:03 PM
I still think it's gonna be that player 1 has blue portals, player 2 has orange, and prop damage is off. But when the other person dies, they go into spectating and the surviving player can pick up their portalgun, they also can't portal each other. When both die, map restart maybe?

Chances are, because the co-op version has you playing two androids, they'd be immune to fire, deadly water...etc...etc.

I expect Valve have thought this through and left the death traps for single player only.

You can still be annoying, though, by messing up their jumps and stuff, I imagine.

Since when do robots jump. Judging by the sise of those robots, I'd say you won't realy be able to jump very high.

Since when do robots have free-will, the sense to use portals strategically, and generally think for themselves?
I'm not really one to question what these robots can do in a game like this.

The robot's probably consist with a personality core. Thatway they can think for themselfs.
As for the portal gun, that ain't to hard sisnce GLaDOS knew exectly how it worked. We can assume these robot's know to.
It's just the jumping that I can't comprehand that well.

It's a science fiction game, try not to comprehend it, it'll make your brain hurt.
These two robot androids or whatever you want to call them are already very different to GlaDOS in the fact that they can move about for themselves, so jumping isn't completely out of their capability I would think.

Besides, a lot of sci-fi androids in movies/games, etc have been able to jump, climb, etc.

Really dude? We're discussion a game in which you carry around a portable inter-dimensional portal launcher and you guys want to wax philosophic over the physical limitations of a freakin' robot jump?:confused:

Money on the 'personality cores' being part of new/old GLaDOS.

Why not? If we can ban people for ruining multiplayer by cheating, we should be able to ban them for ruining it by greifing.

If you die, you just respawn nearby. Also, if it's with your friends, it's usually just joking around.

lolwut Karoshi is fun, but u dont need portals if the objective is to die.

also Lakail - there are two things which the red guy can use to help himself
1) you can see everyone's portals even through walls (check coop gameplay videos)
2) your portals can cancel out the other players portals, so you can place a portal on the other portal to prevent death

Well, what do you think some griefer will do? He will put report your name so much that your banned. Sorry, a system that will help griefers when its made to stop griefers isn't a good system.

Noob question alert- What's a Griefer?

nrnoble
11-06-2010, 01:54 PM
Someone who intentionally wants to ruin a MP game for a specific person or everyone. How a greifer goes about it depends on the game. Some will go as far as stalking another player for days at a time and specifically do everything possible ruin the game.
