I just heard this, and found it quite funny. On the official Lionhead forums allot of people have been complaining about the average co-op, and a lionhead employee with the username "Woody" Posted a pic of loads of handbags, and said "Handbag anyone?" This is the pic:
This has inspired some very... passionate replies. One of my favorites is "is this a f****ng joke of you? are you trying to anger the fans even more?! YOU ****ING LIONHEAD ARE ONE PIECE OF STAB IN THE BACK I THINK I WONT EVEN BUY THE ****ING PIECE OF **** GAME 60 BUKS LESS FOR YOU MOTHER****ERS we trusted lionhead and they're testing us more and more and now they crossed the ****ing line and they can all die. i'm serieus im REALLY ****ING DISSAPOINTED."
Eventually a community manager cleared everything up saying "In all seriousness the co-op of the game is what we always said it was going to be. Maybe it's a bit like marmite, some people like it and others hate it but it does what it says on the tin (I know marmite doesn't come in tins but you get the point)."
Personally I agree with woody's sentiments, Everyone is just bitching about a co-op feature which they didn't have to include in the game in the first place. People should just accept what they've been given and be happy. At least they've got an excellent single player game even if the co-op isn't great.
What do you think about this comment? Was it justified? What do you think of the co-op in the game?
Oh, and here's the lionhead forum thread for anyone who want's to read more of the crazy bickering going on in there.
