Default Portal 2 - release is imminent

My copy is pre-loaded, and i'm genuinely excited to play this, more than maybe any other game.

For those of you who haven't tried the wonders of portal, it's basically an FPS action puzzle game, with a fun sciency theme, moderated by a creepy evil robot. It's awesome.

Portal 2 will hopefully expand on everything that made the first game amazing. Check out the website and trailers for more info:

If you're a PC gamer, the game could be released onto steam any time in the next 24 hours........

Good. That means Valve can focus more on DOTA 2 now.

You can already buy it through steam, that way you can preload it as well

DOTA 2 does look awesome, but RTS has never been my forte. Personally the next thing i want from valve is more half life...

That trailer made it look like a whole lot of fun. I almost regret that I did not buy it from my local gaming store a few days ago.

I'm skeptical about portal 2.

The reason I liked the original Portal was because it was a breath of fresh air. Fun puzzles, an insane passive aggressive AI, clever black humour, cute killer turrets and a cool game mechanic. Plus it didn't take itself too seriously. Don't get me started on the epicness of the end song.

My fear is that this sequel will just try too hard to recreate the magic of the original. I really do hope I'm wrong.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...
