Andrew Gaskill: "I was wandering around Ubisoft's crowded E3 booth, trying to figure out how I was going to cover Far Cry 3's recently announced co-op mode. I was approached by a nice young woman who asked me if I had played the game. I told her I hadn't, and before I could bat my eyelashes she said she recognized the "Co-Optimus" name on my badge. She then informed me that she designed the co-op mode in Far Cry 3 and would very much like for me to play it.
Holy crap! I was talking to Ditte Deenfeldt, the game designer who spent the last two and half years secretly developing Far Cry 3's four player local, online, and combo co-op mode. I asked her for a quick interview and she happily obliged."
