Well it is up for preorders, already did :-p

This is about the one game I have really been looking forward to in forever!

I played the game tag which is where all the people making the paint stuff came to valve from, and I like it, so with any luck portal 2 will be as good as I am hoping.

I may be hoping for too much though D:

Any of you guys looking forward to it?

i'm looking forward to it going on sale.
i'm not paying $50/$45/$40 for a portal game, fully fleshed out or not.

i played tag, loved it, but i'm not sure how the paint/gel is going to work/mesh with portal. i know it's going to be big.. but i see it as being a bit too complicated.. when you consider the double portal flings and aiming them while in-air.. all that.

i dunno. looking forward to it, but not enough to warrant the price.
unless there are hats.

This sums me up. I'll wait until the summer if I have to, but I'm not paying anything more than $30.

I agree, I loved Portal and want to play Portal 2, but the price seems a bit over the top so I'm debating whether or not to get it.

WHOO!! I'm so going to go preorder this when I get some more money.

By the way, did anyone hear what is currently being planned for on the PS3? Apparently they are going to make the PS3 version equivalently as awesome to the PC version. Basically they said they will allow PS3 players to chat to people on Steam on the PC AS WELL as cross-platform multiplayer!
I also heard that if you buy it on the PS3, you can get it on Steam for free as well, but something tells me that might not happen.

I'm praying these features will be on the Xbox 360 version because that would suck big time for me. It would only seem fair to include it, but who knows...

the price over the top really?

Many console games are 60 bucks standard now, and at least on the PC it is only 50, 45 for preorder currently. It has been said that it will be no where near as short as the first one, and really is probably worth it.

i totally understand that they have to price it as it is.. a full game.. but i personally am not willing to pay that much for it.
i know it will be longer than the first.. much longer.. and i hope it has a better mod community than what the original portal had (i played about 3 good custom maps, which were decent), if only because clever puzzles are always fun.
i know it will be a good game.. or hope, at least.. but i'm not paying that much for a story-based game like that. even with co-op.. it doesn't have the replayability games like l4d have, simply because there has to be set stages, instead of randomly generated action.

i dunno. i'll see, i guess. i may end up getting it.

@ the ps3 "rumor", it's true. steamworks will be integrated into portal 2 for the ps3, and people who buy (& assuming login) through the PSN/steamworks addition to the ps3, will somehow get portal 2 added to their PC-side steam account.. from what i've heard.

maybe not, but that's how i understand it.

this does not mean you get two copies for the price of one, this means you get to play it in two places at once. i can't see them allowing co-op play on the PS3 and PC using your same account, though splitscreen on the ps3 will probably be there.. assuming.

As Psychonaut said, I can see why it's priced as a full game now but I've personally never viewed Portal as more than a fun side game of real full game like Half-Life. Even if Portal 2 is making it longer and giving it a deeper story, I still feel like it shouldn't be priced like a full game.

Just my opinion and I may end up getting it also, but as of right now I don't feel compelled to pre-order. Maybe once it's released and I see more gameplay of it I'll be convinced.

But I wouldn't be surprised if it had to do with the release of Portal 2. I am either betting it will do with preorder promotion or maybe an achievement unlock (like the Alien Swarm parasite hat)
Also I'm not sure about that second question. It all depends on how Valve is going to be distributing that item.

I'm also going to say this again, but I really hope the 360 version is going to get the PC linkup feature the PS3 is getting. That'd be plain unfair if we didn't.

It won't. Only the PS3 will be getting the suite of Steamworks features. (steam chat, cross-platform co-op, free SteamPlay copy for PC/Mac, possibly free DLC) I find it quite interesting considering Gabe Newell's past comments of the PS3... "The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels"

Also for those of you assuming there will be a Portal 2 TF2 hat/badge/item, it isn't actually confirmed. You might end up empty handed(or headed)!

Gabe Newell once said in the past that Valve's games just wouldn't work on the PS3 (One of the reasons why The Orange Box was not ported by Valve). So I guess it's just a bit of making up for past events.
If this feature is going to become a trend on the PS3, I may consider finally investing in a PS3. I have a few reasons already to buy one.

It's nice to know it's actually possible. That 25 gig Blu-ray could hold the first two games and maybe even the third AND maybe even the DLC too.

i would say upgrade your PC since you already own a 360. so long as you don't have to upgrade both the processor/motherboard, you'll probably save more money by simply buying a decent graphics card, and you'll DEFINITELY save money if you wait for some good steam sales. the ps3 really doesn't have much in comparison to what xbox live offers, but xbox live can't touch the fact that PSN's free (aside from that PSN plus stuff)

they could have had L4D on the ps3, but with all the tuning to port it over to the ps3.. (see orange box, like you said) i think it was more hassle than valve saw worth in. the whole "ps3 has like 8 hyperthreading cores that MUST be in sync or the game just wont work for some magical reason no one knows" deal. i dunno. if/when we play as the midnight riders, hopefully they'll port it over to both consoles this time. not that it'll affect me too much.. (pc master race :J) but it's good to know my brethren are getting their share.

I still think the PS3 hardware is great, Sony has been ****ing up lately though. Messing in DRM territory I don't like. But I can't entirely blame them I suppose.

I don't know how it will link with steam, but I buy some games for PC because it is just easier to control, other games are just better with a controller. But for me my PS3 will always be a handy dandy bluray player :)

I've already got a good performance computer. It's a about four years old, but it can still run TF2 with high settings.
It's a 2.6 GHz Core 2 Duo Processor with 3 gigs of RAM and an ATI All in Wonder GPU. It runs awesome, but I would love to upgrade some things on it to bring it fully up to date. Although, keeping up with technology is really hard to today. New technology is always being put out so anything new becomes obsolete so fast. That and the price some of the new stuff goes for makes it more beneficial to just buy a whole new computer.
But one thing I should upgrade is my HDD. It's only about 150 GB and it's running out of space fast.

I also noticed something that kind of annoyed me: Portal 2 is coming out on a Monday :/ I just pray my Math and Physics courses don't load too much homework that night. Regardless though, I'm gonna play Portal 2 that night.

i have about the same, 2.4 instead of 2.6
integrated graphics, or a real GPU? cuz i'd assume it would be kinda choppy without a dedicated gpu. otherwise, that's my comp in a nutshell.

i have a 1tb hard drive that i put in it, two years old.. good stuff. price point is why i said you'd be better off UNLESS you have to buy a new processor/motherboard. that's what costs $300/400 alone. but, it's top notch stuff. anything over quad core is just gravy at this point, since most games only use two cores as is.

my advice = buy a new HDD, upgrade your PSU when one goes on sale, and pick up a cheap graphics card. all that shouldn't cost you more than $150 if you look at the right places.. depending on which HDD you get. i don't see the point in blowing all the money a bleeding edge GPU costs, but your call i guess.

My version of expensive is anything over 100 dollars XD I'm actually quite happy with what I got now. It's just me trying to thrive for everything at max settings with 60 FPS :P

The only thing holding me back from buying a new HDD is the operating system. I'm not sure if I can transfer it without affecting the license. I'm pretty sure it would work, but even so, I would prefer to start fresh as Windows is getting really slow. Could be one excuse to upgrade to 7. If I do ever get a HDD update, I'm going to make sure it is 1 TB or more.

i'd recommend using a solid state drive for your OS if your other parts will take advantage of the huge speed boost.

i made a backup disc of vista whenever i first set it up.. so i used that to reinstall it on my bigger hard drive (shouldn't have done that, since it's made for storage, not speed/constant use)

PC version will be able to have higher settings than ps3/console, if it's tricked out enough. :p

and yeah.. i know where you're coming from. a ps3 isn't cheap either, though. :p saving 100/200 bucks.. not bad at all.

I've been meaning to burn a copy of it to a CD for about two years. I wish I did that on my performance computer, but oh well.

Oh and I should rephrased the part where I said I was considering on getting a PS3 in the future. I was more saying that because there are some other games on there that intrigued me. I would never consider a PS3 version of a game as a replacement to the PC version. That's plain mad :P

I'm just going to wait until I can rent it from a game rental store. I'm skeptical about how long the game actually is, and how well the co-op will do, and I don't want to buy a game I'll beat in two days and the co-op being boring. So renting, and if it's worth purchasing, then that.

I was thinking more along the lines of free though. Well at least for the PC/Mac and PS3.

Speaking of additional content, since the PS3 is going to feature cross-platform multiplayer for this, what happens if a user on the PC is playing a custom made map? I'm going to safely say it will not allow you to join their session, but one could only hope...

Well the replay value was more in completing the challenges. which included some extra chambers, and some rather hard to perfect things.

Now one thing I hope they try to do is form a map making community, that would help, but honestly I liked picking portal up to play through it a few times after my first run through. It was just fun really, and I tried to see things I didn't before.

the challenges were hard.. and most of the puzzles were designed so that there were alternate solutions.. but still, unless there's something that changes from one play to the next, i doubt the co-op will be as good as l4d or tf2.. which it will no doubt be compared to, even though it's an entirely different game.

Yeah. Next to Luigi's Mansion, Portal 1 was the game I played through the most. The whole game mechanics is just an awesome experience.
On top of that, it's fun playing it on the PC then spawning a jeep + impulse 101. I threw one of those antlion controller things in a Portal and made it go into constant freefall and get stuck. I also once bound a key to spawn a jeep and kept spamming it until it said I lost connection to my server in Portal.
I wonder what awesome dev codes will be available in Portal 2 beyond what is offered now.

valve promised you nothing in tf2 for purchasing portal 2. learn to read.

it comes with the potato sack because of the portal 2 arg currently going on. really, learn to read/not make impulse purchases.

This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Aperture Science:
We do what we must because we can.
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are dead.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake
And the science gets done and you make a neat gun
For the people who are still alive.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart and killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you.


Now these points of data make a beautiful line
And we're out of beta we're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD I got burned think of all the things we learned
For the people who are still alive.

Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa -
THAT WAS A JOKE. HA HA, FAT CHANCE.
Anyway, this cake is great:
It's so delicious and moist.


Look at me still talking when there's science to do.
When I look out there it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run there is research to be done
On the people who are still alive

And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.

Still alive
Still alive

you were *****ing about there not being items, and that page didn't exist when i posted.

@ valve begging for money, shut the **** up, seriously. the potato sack is completely optional, and the game will be released on the 19th one way or another. this is simply a way for the community to get involved in it's release, and damn good marketing. i bought the pack just out of appreciation to the ARG, though i already owned half the games.

and durr hurr, even if you only own killing floor, you can play it and contribute. you don't have to buy the pack to make the game release any sooner, there are people who have already figured out all of the rest of the ARG who have not only gotten us to this point, but are going to be playing the games in order to unlock the game sooner.

note: you don't have to do a damn thing, and don't have to buy anything. you already own one of the games, so just idle in there if you want to contribute. not like you could play every game at once, anyways.

stop *****ing about it and enjoy what valve have prepared for this games release.

they've built up not only a fun experience (with LOADS of new, original content for the potato sack games) spanning both virtual space and real life, but a great marketing "ploy" to get indie game devs more publicty, and to build up the hype for portal 2.

deal with it, nerds. like it or not, this has been enjoyable for myself and plenty of other people.

I think that add on may be wrong, the time on it and the website on like IE are different.
the difference is that the page regularly only adds the game up to the total when it's fully done. so ignore the projected launch, and focus on the "how many hours are left until this game is completed" bars.

Alright, Entei and I have come up with a conclusion: Valve is toying with us! Upon installing that Firefox app, he told me that the timer was going up, not down. I checked that, and it was true. It quickly jumped from ending at 12:30 to 1:00! Is this a glitch? Is Valve messing with us? Was that app fake? Discuss.
P.S: If the time up was a glitch, I did some math. The absolute latest the game could come out, based on the rate the other games have gone, is 7:00 P.M. (CST) tomorrow! However, the timer going up screws that up.

Entei Slider

It's official; Valve owned us. This whole Potato Sack thing failed, IMO. They promised us an earlier release, which it doesn't look like we're gonna get. Instead of releasing it 19 hours earlier, this afternoon... They moved it all the way to tomorrow at three in the morning! Which saves... 5 hours! And even with that, I wouldn't mind the extra 5 hours. I'm gonna be sleeping then, anyway. And I have school tomorrow. They got my hopes up, then crushed them. Thanks, Valve.
On a more pleasant note, I cannot WAIT for tomorrow, though. This is going to be an amazing game that I am super stoked for!

Lets make a list of possible prizes for said unnamed contest!!

2 copies of magicka via codes from GDC, AAAaaAAA!!!, Amnesia, Audiosurf, Cogs, Half-Life 1, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2 Death match, Half-Life 2 Episode 1, Half-Life 2 Episode One (I don't know why I have 2 and one uses the number symbol of one while the other spells it one), Half-Life 2 Episode 2, Left 4 dead, Left 4 Dead 2, 2 copies of Portal, Portal 2, Super Meat Boy, Team Fortress 2, and still have a copy of Trine.... hmmm I don't know how I will handle it, but I think a contest is the best way to, (some of these on the list may be given away before said contest though.)

Point is, I be trippin in gifts. If you can think of an amazing contest idea please drop me a pm or post in here :-p

A fail? When have Valve ever failed at anything?
http://cdn.duelinganalogs.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/team-fortress-2-then-and-team-fortress-2-now.jpg

oh, and the game is good, but it really just feels like an expansion/dlc for portal 1. reading around, people have been saying the main difference is that it's mainly because the portal concept is no longer fresh and new, but i think it's a bit underwhelming because there was not enough elaboration on each puzzle mechanic. it felt like as soon as you did something really cool, and wanted to see what else you could do with your new trick, valve just up and said "LOL THAT'S ALL"

i think it's good, i'm not trying to say it's 100% bad, i just really feel it could have been better.

the length is just long enough to feel like there should be more. right when you get all of the tools for solving puzzles, they pull the plug and it's over, before you get to see amazingly complex puzzles. note the plural.

yeah seriously I would at least try running it on your PC, I mean the source engine can run on computers that were decent from 5 years ago, so yeah if you have a newer one it will probably run. If laptop I'd still say 50/50 chance though.

But PC version is cheaper and it's not like you can give away the PC version to a friend, you are forced to have both unless you sacrifice multiplayer gameplay on the PS3.

if you can run it on your laptop
people should wise up, imo.

at this point right now, i would say the ps3 has the best deal, since you're essentially getting the option to play it on two consoles, instead of one. $10 more for a disc, manual (however small it may be), compatibility with a console.. i dunno.

if it hadn't been $40 and coming with a valve complete pack, i would have been upset with myself for buying it on PC, too.

What? I can play multiplayer on the PS3 just as fine as I can on the computer. I don't see how it's a sacrifice. They're the exact same game with the exact same features.

he's saying you can't play both multiplayer at once.

if you activate the ps3 free copy on your steam account, you still only get one copy, though you can play it both places.

you can't, say, sell your steam key, and still play multiplayer on the ps3. because to play multiplayer online requires the steamworks service.

god damn, i just realized that. smart move, valve.

Valve found a way to combat the used games industry. IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE!

Seriously they have stumbled into a way to provide content more easily, discourage the reselling of games, by offering good multi-player experiences it really does stop a lot of piracy.

Portal 2 has more depth and honestly, a better dialogue.

"In 1948, at the request of a dying boy, baseball legend Babe Ruth ate seventy-five hot dogs, then died of hot dog poisoning."
"Before the Wright Brothers invented the airplane, anyone wanting to fly anywhere was required to eat 200 pounds of helium."
"According to the world's best algorithms, the world's best name is Craig."
"Dreams are the subconscious mind's way of reminding people to go to school naked and have their teeth fall out."

i would've liked it better if they had cut out half of the back and forth BS dialogue between glados and herself and wheatley.
it felt like they were holding your hand through the entire experience, which took away half of the fun of exploring the huge world they put into the second (compared to the first)

i mean, i liked it, but i think i only felt once the experience of exploration i felt through a few points in my first playthrough of portal.
co-op notwithstanding, of course.

yeah, the map challenge was sneaky (as i didn't know about it), and the free soundtrack is pretty cool.

didn't they say it was the first of three, or something?

i can't help but feel like this music is all the same, though.. portal 1 had lack of music, but the few times it did have music really stuck out, y'know.
