Sorry this question sounds so absurd, but really having an issue finding two-player split screen games. This stems from the terminology used. Here is an example. Downloaded Borderlands from Xbox on demand. Started playing in split screen mode with a friend.
Got a strange message about player 2 not having a saved spot and to press okay to continue. Pressed okay you continue. Played the game for awhile to get used to it, got to levels 5 and 4. Went to end the game, it said it was saved. Turned off the console.
Went to play it again and my character was saved; however, my friends character was not. There was never an option to create a profile for player 2. Thought this game was multiplayer: local and on-line, co-op 2-4 players. Was it incorrect to assume that if
another person wanted to play the same missions together with me we could? Otherwise could you explain the difference between multiplayer:on-line & local, and co-op: 2-4?
