I thought he was talking about saving Eli from the train but he was actually foreshadowing the ending. Click to expand... Click to shrink... Indeed! And just like his directions, nobody thought that he was being literal. Naga said: Why co-op? HL3 or whatever it's called should be solo with Gordon. If they want to go the Portal 2 route, it'd be different characters again (Barney and Shepard for example). Click to expand... Click to shrink... I reckon we won't get another Pancake-Life if there isn't something big Valve thinks they can do with it, and innovating on co-op strikes me as an obvious chioce. Also presents a rare opportunity to spread that burden and code with a future L4D title and speed them both along as complementary SP/MP opposites.
