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

I played through it on Friday night.
I'm now playing through Half-Life 2 as I wait for Portal 2. I honestly forgot how much I played of HL2 back when it came out. Unfortunately, now that I've surpassed my previous checkpoint, I still have no idea how far I actually am into the game.

Well, unless something drastic happens, it looks like the release time will be 3:30 a.m. central tomorrow morning. Unless the rest of the games finish up, it won't make quite enough of a difference. I'm anxious to play the game, but not enough to get up THAT early.

I'm getting mine from amazon tomorrow, probably dropped off by UPS. Sometimes they come early, sometimes after I get home from work. Either way, I'm going to open the box it comes in, take the disc out of the package, put it into my console and start playing it!

Then I might call this girl I know, and see if she's up for hanging out, if not, I'll just furiously masturbate and go to sleep.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

Got my activation code this morning from Valve. I don't get the game any earlier than the rest of you plebeians, but at least I can pre-load it. And it works on my Mac! The real question is, does anyone know if the 360 controller works on the Mac?

As of now (11:19 PM EDT), the countdown clock is at 1 hour and 20 minutes, but another game is close to "finishing". It looks like Portal 2 will unlock sometime after midnight EDT.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

You have to kind of wonder who is running walmart. I cancelled this right when amazon matched them. They charged my card last week, called them and they refunded it. Now they shipped it even though they never took their money /facepalm

According to tracking it is set to be here tomorrow. Going to watch my account, but I may have just gotten a free copy.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

My copy of Portal 2 is decrypting on Steam right now.

...and it's done. I may regret this in the morning, but I have to try it now.

Oh goodie, I spent half the day downloading this on my Mac only to find out my OS is too old. Lion needs to come out already.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

I'm sure people have already finished it, but I'm avoiding spoilers. I only got up an hour early to play, so I have no idea how far I am yet, other than "Chapter 2".

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

According to PSLS it is about 10 to 11 hours which is pretty damn good, and that's just for single player, even more if you do co-op.

Ok, forget that site. I can't take the word of a site that has an article that likens buying a used game as piracy.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

Yeah, IGN's review mentioned 10 - 12 hours, but I thought that was including the co-op mode. I'm on Chapter 2 as well.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

I love it so far. I'm just a little into chapter 3. The levels have been fun, and the dialogue is hilarious.

Re: Portal 2 PS3/PC/360

I was having great fun with this game until I reached chapter 6. Now it's starting to drag unfortunately. I just had to turn it off for a bit because it was making me a little dizzy after playing straight for about 5 hours. Seems like a 8ish hour campaign based on how many chapters there are.

"It's recommended we wake up dormant test subjects every three months or so. You've been under...a lot longer. You might have a slight case of serious brain damage. If this alarms you, just try to calm down, or, better yet, hold on to that feeling, as it is the proper response to being told you have brain damage."

Yeah, but remember that the first game had that last level or two that went on and on and on...
