    I'll probably buy Cogs today and Gratuitious Space Battles campaign part as i already have all the other addons. Too bad Cogs require SM3.0 so i won't be able to play it on my netbook argh.

    That's an estimation based on our progress - it will not be right as we don't know the effect of 2 complete games, nor any other parts of the equation (the speed we completed jumped as we hit 200,000 potatoes).

    If you look on http://www.aperturescience.com/glados@home/?o=342 then in the glados textual output box it lists the original release time, which is only 50 mins after the current one.

    When this game hits the streets, please do not post any spoilers in this thread for at least 72 hours (that's 3 days for the math challenged) as there are many people who read these posts, or have to read the posts (LIKE ME !!!), and do not want the game ruined.

    Please do not even put things in spoiler tags as I have to read those to as part of my mod job.

    Thanks guys. If you can hold back your need to comment on the game for 3 days, I'll give something away in this thread. Deal?

    Ouch - sucks having to read stuff in spoiler tags (I guess it makes sense that you have to though). If I don't spoil it for you do I get a custom title? :p

    Portal 2 ends where you see GLaDOS is running on <censored>

    I can't give you, or anyone, a custom title human_error.
    But I can give stuff away :)

    Thanks, Bond :toast:

    I have to work and won't get a whole lot of time to play in the first 24-48 hours after release.
    I won't/can't infract you as there are no rules about spoilers in threads. But I have to read them to verify content is appropriate.
    I've been waiting for this game since P1 came out. Hate to have it spoiled before I get to even start it up.
    I'm just asking as a personal favor from my TPU brothers (and sisters) and fellow gamers, and also for everyone else who spends more time working than playing. :toast:

    Aww rubbish :p

    I'll avoid posting spoilers for 72 hours - is it 72 hours from now, or 72 hours from portal 2 being unlocked though?

    Already the backseat lawyer lol.
    72 hours from unlock/release.

    In all honesty gents, I can't stop you from posting anything as long as it follows the TPU guidelines.
    I can ask Mussels or Rhino to check the thread if I don't want to see it. No Problem at all.
    I just thought I would make a little contest to add to the P2 release.
    Your call.

    Well the first day of release I will have a few first impression vids up on my channel. I recommend you not visiting my channel then. xD

    I am very confused right now... I see I can buy Portal 2 at Bestbuy for only $35! If i do this do i get a dvd and key?( so i can link it to my Steam account?) if so then i think i will do this to save money as i won't be able to play till the next weekend.

    except that i dont want to see it either.


    how about infractions for spoilers without spoiler tags? XD

    you get a single use key to add it to your steam account, and a DVD with the launch files so you wont have to download much when it comes out.

    If anyone needs help post in this thread. The wiki might be more helpful than me, but I was able to just "divine" how to do half the games / puzzles. The Ball was the most fun, trust me. It is like Portal, but with a big ball.

    hm... Would this work If I buy the PS3 version and create a new psn account on my sisters ps3 and still link it to my steam account, so i can use the pc version and she can use the ps3 version(she does not have internet so we could probably play at same time). the only thing im concerned about that would happen is when ever she happens to connect it to the internet it would try to sync are saves.

    assuming the PS3 version doesnt require you to be online to play it, yes.


    remember that this is valve, who pioneered the 'must be online to play' crap. they could have some system set up so you cant be logged into both at the same time (which i find unlikely, tbh - they cant lock your entire steam account down just because a linked game is being played on a PS3)

    The 19th of April, followed by a question mark, is written on the sign on the wall in the new Portal 2 themed Defence Grid map.

    because no one wants to see any spoolers, at any time. ever.


    as for spoilers, we have tags. use them. some of us have to read your posts, and we arent letting any threads go un moderated just for fear of spoilers.

    Believe it or not I have only just recently finished the first one even though I got it free on Steam a while back. Currently trying the bonus maps and whatever. I REALLY enjoyed it, so unique, clever and funny.

    I'm hoping this second one is going to expand on it big time, is it?

    (I am yet to play any of the half-life series on PC!!! Guess what I will be doing Easter weekend? And no, it doesn't involve chocolate...)
