Wow! This guy made a series of Portal 2 test chambers to propose to his g/f. He even got Ellen McClain to do voice acting for it.

I really want to try the coop for this game - I was late to the party so never got the chance. Hit me up if you want to break my cherry!

I would be happy to go through them again... hit me up in the evenings after 6pm PDT steam in sig.

I'd be willing to play Dysplastic. Heck it's been so long I've probably forgotten all the solutions anyway.

It's over-hyped and the ending is a real let down.

Hey! Spoilers!

PC sold better than console versions.

Interesting. Wonder how the PSN outage affected PS3 sales for people that might have wanted both for the same money? Then there's always the console rental/used options for a game that's not as replayable as the L4D games.

Are they counting PS3 copies as PC copies as well, since you can activate it on Steam?

No idea, but I assume they're talking retail sales.

But to the meme that everything on the internet eventually ends up as dubstep:

Wasn't there supposed to be free Portal 2 DLC this summer?

It's coming in September I think.

Last I heard, it was still scheduled for September, which they are considering the summer.

I suppose that's still summer. It's certainly summer by Valve time.

The Earth's orbit would agree with "them".

Yeah if it's not out by Sept 22? or whatever, then we can start asking.

Just because Labor Day and kids going back to school feels like the end of summer doesn't mean it is.

Something I just noticed, why does the art change in the relaxation vault?

That's kind of brilliant -- I missed it entirely. The nighttime version seems less relaxing and more ominous, and

Spoiler:

would be the first reference to the moon in the game, right?

The only thing I can think of is that it goes along with Aperture's voice recordings for every occasion. They had someone/thing cycle the art around for every extended sleep cycle to maintain the mental stimulation.

I guess that speaks to Valve's "environmental storytelling" genius, put in a little detail and watch the gamers make up their own little story about it and fill out the world, which is better in many respects than force feeding it to players, and I imagine more likely to be accepted by the player as they did it themselves (assuming they imagined what you wanted them to).

That's what my guess was as well.

Also, yeah, the September DLC seems to be running pretty firmly on Valve time.

Pretty happy I happened to think about it and ask about it the day before the release date was announced. That amused me.

What release date?

If anyone is still looking for a partner to play co-op with, I haven't touched it at all and would love to try it with a fellow goodjer. Please send me a PM with your Steam name so I can keep up with who's available (I'm on Pacific time and married, so bear that in mind too). Thanks in advance, and I promise to be not quite as drunk as I am right now.

October 5th, if the announcement is to be believed.

Though since it's Valve, that means that the date is completely fluid between then and the end of time.
