  1. It's been over two years since the original Portal captivated cake lovers everywhere, and a proper sequel is now officially on the way. The first title accumulated such a following that it was arguably more popular than Half Life 2: Episode Two or Team Fortress 2 (other titles included in The Orange Box).

    I hope the game play reaches further then only puzzles like the first Portal, I'd like to use guns in missions against troops.

    Nice, Always loved Portal. Made me dizzy for the first 30mins of gameplay. I miss my cube too... Why did he have to die?

    Unlikely (from the article): Very limited details have been given, but the game will be a "full-fledged, standalone sequel" with "new gameplay mechanics, storyline, and some surprising new twists."

    :) Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    The only thing that could make this moment more perfect would be the Companion Cube.

    Awesome cover shots! Can't wait to read the article. I still need to finish playing Portal, I still got The Orange box somewhere in my room.

    I have to say Portal was one of the most enjoyable games I've played in the last few years. I look forward to the sequel.

    The original Portal was an amazing game and I have been looking forward to its sequel for a while now. I am glad that it is coming this year.

    Man this is gonna be great! So is there actually going to be cake this time? Or will it once again be GlaDOS teasing us?

    This gives me a nerdy little hard on. Portal was one of the most entertaining and innovative games I've ever played. So simple, yet so perfect. I can't wait to play this game. Hell, I'll even pay for it instead of ripping it off, cause I want the guys at Valve to keep making games. Valve is one of the best companies out there.
