What's going on now exactly?

Key players investigating the ARG are now playing Portal 2 and sending out cryptic messages. A lot of Half Life crossover stuff is coming up too.

Okay. That IS cool.

Someone contact Valve!!! We need the Walken Cube!!!!

Also, if one of the adorable turrets were to snap, and go Invader Zim's GIR-like, that'd be awesome sauce

Oh, all the stuff upthread with the hijacked users. That's pretty cool.

I'm thinking the 'accelerated countdown' happening now will result in a release at 12:01 -- probably the predetermined outcome all along.

According to my rough calculations, the potato countdown timer looks to be matched up with the regular countdown timer, which both seem to be saying 12:01 AM PST, 3:01 AM EDT.

Kinda lame, but whatever. We'll all be playing it tomorrow I guess.

Multi? Yes. Single player? Yeah, i'm gonna stay up for that. I have absolutely no control, will power or discipline.

If this thing actually launches at 12:01 PST I'll probably end up losing some sleep tonight. For science!

Did this PS3 Interview get posted Thurs or not?

This topic has been blazing since Fri and I didn't remember.

It talks a bit about Steam on PS3 and the coop, cloud saves, and so on. And possibilities for DLC and other games and so on. Interesting read.

Leveraged is one of the people who was "abducted"

Actually, the projected time is before 12:01 PDT since Audiosurf was finished--it looks like the "higher effort required to finish" games are worth more. My projection of the final end point is... 12:01 EDT. Which is more fair to us east-coasters. If only it were 12:01 UTC.

damn it stole my idea

I am probably spatially challenged but I think the timer just dropped one whole hour (8:25 to 7:25).

*edit*

15:35 - Calculations complete for The Ball. Recalculating a new launch projection...

Yep.

yes, The Ball finished
Killing Floor is being focused now

This may be a stupid question, but my guess is that someone here knows the answer. On the PS3 some content is locked to your machine's hardware ID (for instance a number of saves are unfortunately locked in this manner), other content is instead tied to your PSN id.

1. Does anyone know for sure whether the code in the game links our steam account to our PSN profile or to our PS3 hardware? (I game on two different systems in the house depending on whether my kids are awake or not and what game I'm playing)

2. Does anyone know if we will be signed into PSN and steam simultaneously or if we will be auto signed out of PSN when playing Portal 2 liked we are when watching DVDs?

I really want to wait for my PS3 copy tomorrow, but if they release it at the right time, they could trick me out of $50.

Steam group invite, please.

You've both been tapped.

Oh yeah.

Should we try to get the OP updated with group info?

For me, it says 6:58hrs for projected launch. What takes 7 hrs besides sleep and kinky sex?

Weekly poop.

I think 3 hours is likely. There are four more games to finish and they are knocking off an hour each. Plus there's the thing that Fedora posted which lines up with that projection.

Although, keep in mind that this is a game releasing on Steam. So, today at 7 PST means sometime tomorrow afternoon.

1. From what I've read it sounds like you log into Steam on your PS3, and maybe it even logs you off of your PC steam, just like logging into your laptop logs you out of your desktop or whatever.

2. No idea... the one article mentioned playing with PSN friends if you didn't want to use Steam, but I'm not sure if that means when you log into Steam you lose your PSN friends list or if you can use either one to join with people.

Wars with the combine?

A slightly offball 8-to-3 workday?

I caved and bought the two-pack. If anyone doesn't have the original game, I've got two copies to give away.

I'm ready for tomorrow. Bought the PS3 version so that I could play with a friend and then still have the PC version as well.

Also, can I get an invite to the steam group?

Must.. resist.. The pile.. it mocks me already.. Self-control.. failing.. Noooo..

"Hello, and again, welcome to ..."

And may I have an invite to the steam group, please? Thanks!

Just had another 102MB chunk of the game pushed to me. Must mean we're getting close, right?!

Invite please!
