    I believe they are planning to release an updated SDK or something like that to enable people to make new maps and such.

    BTW, what you linked to is for the first Portal

    That's not what I meant. Was any user created content made for the first Portal?

    One of us must be misunderstanding the other.
    If you click that link it says: "This page contains a listing of custom user created maps and mods for Portal"

    edit: In any case, also check these links

    Thanks!

    Btw, apparently the DLC for Portal 2 will be available by next summer. And at least it's free :)

    Portal 2 - the Final Hours

    This is not a game, just a rich pdf file showing all the works. But it's neat for $2

    Nice one, BP. :) I have to confess that I bought this straight away, from the Steam startup offers window that shows daily.

    I beat the single player a few days ago...


    I'm kind of disappointed, it wasn't nearly as long/hard as I thought it would be.:confused:

    One can argue about the length, I found it just right. As hor difficulty, there were a few puzzles where brain bending was necessary, but I never found it impossibly hard. Challenging but doable.

    I was more soaked in by the epic atmosphere.

    Finally got to start the game, performance is nice. Maxed at 2048x1536 with 16AF 8AA no probs. From the little I have played so far it looks like the GFX have been bumped up slightly (nice lighting) and the humour is right up my street. Can't wait to carry on playing it!!

    but still 5hrs for a $40+game?


    the 5hs is from steam, but is there anywhere I can look to see exactly how long it took?

    It took me about 5 hours the first time through. Then another few hours for co-op. I wouldn't pay more than $35 for it (which is exactly what I paid :laugh:)

    You lot must be geniuses - it took me way longer than 5 hours to finish, about 15 in fact.

    Or I'm just stupid. :eek: :laugh:

    Some of those puzzles, especially the later ones were fiendish and took some working out. Heck, I even resorted to a YouTube walkthrough a couple of times.

    Also, the shear amount of content seems to be more than 5 hours worth, too.

    the only ones that really puzzled me was when you had to "paint" the 2 towers in order to jump, and when you fell into the "basement"

    Took me round seven hours. That includes standing still when listening to the brilliant voice acting, and exploring every damn corner to maybe find some brilliant details.
