Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

There's a hole in the wall. A Portal.

    on Steam's website, it says that Portal is 20 bucks stand alone.

    sounds good to me. unless the game is short.

    also, can't run it.

    It is very very short by appearances

    Had it unlocked for 1h45m and I'm on the last test which will, at a guess, take about half an hour

    But then there are bonus levels and challenges, and achievements and the inevitable custom maps soooo

    I wouldn't pay $20 for it but I would pay $45 for it, TF2, and ep2 (well $50 now I guess)

    I don't know if it has one now but the only reason it wouldn't have one sooner or later would be that gabe newell was replaced by his evil twin brother llewen ebag or something

    that was funnier in my head

    Well I just got the dual portal-gun.

    I'm stuck in a room with... well there's a set of stairs off to the left, that lead to a small but empty room. Then in front of me the floor is made out of that black, un-portal-able material except for the very end, which is then followed by a glass wall with a forcefield on top. Behind the glass wall is another puzzle room, with an energy ball launcher.

    Not sure if anyone can tell where that is. Doesn't seem to have a number.

    zephypoo I believe you missed number one

    here it is again

    1) Guitar Hero 3

    i am not seeing why this is a good reason not to get

    Half Life 2 + Episode 1 and 2
    Portal
    Team Fortress 2

    i mean

    you'd rather pretend to be playing a guitar over pure win?


    I have half-life 2 already but from i hear of ep1+2, there's not enough gameplay time to validate the money spent

    plus I'm not an EFF PEE ESSS type dude

    I'd play the fuck out of portal but man, it's behind those other 2 things something fierce

    EP1 was fucking awesome man. Sure it was short, but it was just 20$. Plus, you now get EP1 AND 2, Portal and TF2 for the price of one regular game.
    Me, for even less, because the dollar is so deliciously weak compared to the euro <3

    yeah just beat it.. it was short but fun. I am going to find the song from the end because it was pretty great.

    Also there is an easter egg in the game if you pay close enough attention.

    Okay, heres the deal.

    I have a gift of half life 2 and HL2 ep1 that I can give to someone.

    But I don't know who wants/needs/deserves it.

    So if someone wants it, I'll consider it but I also have a friend from the real world who might be interested in taking them off my hands.

    So, is this game heavy on the graphics cards?

    Last couple games I tried to install were like, NO

    Then I would try to start it again and again it was like NO

    I don't blame you

    But yeah, I am really liking the sense of humor valve has been bringing to its games. First Team fortress 2 and the characters/character videos. Now portal. It is great.

    That was pretty awesome. But seriously.

    Fuck portal and the "just one more level" thing. I was supposed to go to sleep like 4 hours ago. But I just had to keep seeing what comes next. Now I have to go to class on no sleep. wooo.

    It is froth-worthy thinking of how they are going to use the portal gun in future half-life games. Or whatever mods people manage to make for this thing. If they can. The game itself was pretty fun and wacky. Nice puzzle stuff. Definitely worth getting the orange box for. But I would not have bought it for $20 on its own I think.. well I might have, but I would not have felt awesome about it.
