I think I will buy Demon's Souls instead of Portal 2 now.

i'd say your comment is way more 'lol'-worthy since you CLEARLY haven't been paying attention to the fact that everyone is freaking the fuck out over that game...

So if you buy Portal 2 you unlock the Demon's Souls hats in TF2, right? That's what he was hinting at, right?

So Awesome that you turned a Valve interview into talking about Demon's Souls. 
That was a really fun interview. I like when developers talk about other games they love and not just try to sell their own.

Demon's Souls ain't that rough.  The lack of tutorials sucks, but what can you do.

Erik seems like a pretty cool guy, taking the time to talk so much about a completly different game that has nothing to do with valve in any way shape or form. It seems like he genuinely enjoys gaming as a hobby and not just his source of money.

No, it's about the meme. That's pretty much the single-most driven into the ground meme there has ever been for a video game.

I totally have pre-orders for both Portal and MK.  No reason people can't like both.

They use some of Midnight Brown's music, which is Jeff's band.

Love that Valve isn't held down by PR who wants you to always "stay on message". Now only if they could ship episode 3.

Can barely wait for this game, probably the game I'm looking forward to the most together with L.A. Noire.

Considering all the pre-release hype that's been surrounding Mortal Kombat for awhile now it probably has a better shot at taking on Portal than SOCOM. Major sites like IGN and Gamepot, neither of whom have ever cared much about MK in the past, are doing some pretty extensive and positive coverage of that game.

" For me: "We're finished with the game"="We're looking to actually make some day-1 DLC for shameless idiots who will purchase it and then complain about it while contributing to the problem.  We do this because we just want more money.  We're not going to say this in interviews, since people on the Internet can't handle the truth nor can they accept the concept of 'opinions' in general."  Bring on the flames; I don't care by this point  "

You are not an intelligent individual who sees through the bullshit you think everyone else is blinded by. You are blinded by your own bullshit and cynicism. You do not know how games are made. You do not know what you are talking about. You are not smart. You do not speak the truth. The only thing that hurts about your truth is how much you believe it to be the truth. You are a selfish self-serving egoistic asshole trying to deflect any negative criticism to your ignorant baseless comments by playing the opinion card after proclaiming to tell the truth. Only a selfish self-serving asshole could take something so negative from such a fun interview to serve his own cynical soapbox speech. You have not experienced enough of the world to base you cynical world view on anything concrete. Watching and judging people from your almighty computer desk is not experiencing the world. Not all people are as terrible as you think they are, just you. Don't be a pussy and actually go out and talk to another human being. 
 
There the flames have been brought. Now recoil in fear over the prospect that the world isn't exactly how you think it is, or as you call it, not caring.

Watch this, it will make you a better person. "Cynicism is intellectual cowardice."

Erik turning a Portal 2 interview into "yo Jeff, play Demon's Souls" is the best thing.

It is soooo crazy that people are still talking about Demon's Souls this passionately. I can't believe no one other than Vinny took that as a clue to muster through it. Being a huuuge fan of the game myself, I cannot wait for Dark Souls either. It's just absurd how popular the first game still is.

@TonyBlue87: I know, I'm not saying you can't like both, maybe I just underestimate Mortal Kombat, but I just don't think Socom and Mortal Kombat carry the same weight as they use to. Mortal Kombat seems like a fighting game series thats kind of stuck in the past. The games people like most are MK2 and MK3, thats why this game is literally going back to those game.  
 It's unfair for me to judge MK9 because I'm not a huge fighting game player and I haven't played the demo, but MK9 just doesn't seem all that special. I think Jeff just likes it because he really likes the old Mortal Kombats. It's just doing stuff that the series did nearly 20 years ago just with nicer looking gore.  Portal on tthe other hand is a fairly new series. Gameplay wise what Valves is doing is very creative and unlike most other games. I think most people given the choice would take Portal over Mk unless they have some nostalgia for the series. But thats just me.

Agreed. Mortal Kombat has a lot of positive energy around it. MK has always sold well for a fighting game before this revival of late, and it seems like it's even drawing people who haven't cared about SF4 and the like. I'd say it's at a stronger position than Socom at least. Where MK is getting a reboot, and with that, renewed interest, how much does Socom matter to people at this point? The online shooter landscape has changed so much in recent years, but they seem to be continuing in the same manner as before. I kind of like the series, but I don't think they can recapture public interest in the same way.

" @Rxanadu:  Wait, have you ever played a Valve-game before? Are you in any way aware of how they do business? They've been releasing free updates to Team Fortress 2 for over three years now, and Left 4 Dead/Left 4 Dead 2 have also received plenty of free new modes, levels, etc. The only time Valve's ever charged for stuff was on Xbox 360, when Microsoft basically forced them to. But with Portal 2 having Steam on PS3, any updates to that are likely to be free. And PC-updates will be free, too.   Sure, day 1 DLC is stupid, sometimes. But don't go shouting that everywhere, because if there's one developer doing it right, it's Valve. "
You do realize Valve never releases an update that costs money, right? Well, except on the 360 where Microsoft demands money.
