  1. The original Portal release on the PC was one that deservedly received high praise from gamers and journalists alike. It was different to many other Valve titles in that you no longer had any weapons in your hands, just a simple two-way portal weapon, along with a jump and crouch button.

    Partnership my *** (no offense to Neowin, of course).

    You guys should the the ones doing the review. Haven't any of the staff thought about it (and, of course, combining it with the performance review)? I think it would be pretty good.

    I will definitely be picking it up, but not at the price of €50 (I saw it was on preorder sale for €44 in the weekend aswell)
    Portal is an awsome game but to me not worth more than say €20
    So I'll wait untill it falls in price or these is a steam deal :)

    I'm guessing it will be months before a sale. It probably won't hit $20 until Q4.

    Yea I know, but another thing is I'm guessing it's $50 in the US?
    Well, with todays exchange rate 50.00 USD = 34.9128 EUR
    So you can understand that price to me just sounds absurd!

    Its $90 for two, lol.

    Steam Christmas sale 2011 here I come!

    I pretty much buy the bulk of next year's gaming on it.

    Now that Portal 2 is finally out can we PLEASE get back to the epic Half Life series? HL2 episode 3 or HL3 will do, I don't really care what you call it.

    I am only a few hours into the single and co op campaigns but I am already loving both. I admire the style of the game and find it extremely entertaining. My favorite game this year for sure.
