    Sounds good to me. The first Portal was really fun. I haven't tried Portal Prelude, but that one seems fun as well.

    Well, this is great. I actually thought it would be announced march 11, though this is nice too. Maybe we'll get a trailer on march 11. Gamestop claims it has co-op multiplayer, and that it's 50 dollars. I'm not sure whether to trust that information.

    I have Portal, but i haven't played it yet. I might consider playing portal right before playing portal 2 ^_^

    I've never heard of this series but by these comments it seems I'm missing out. Is this a puzzle game similar to Cube for Psone? If so, I'll pass.

    No, it's closer to HL2 then to D-Cube. If you haven't played this, especially when you own it, you really missed something. Portal has a great story, has great gameplay, and involves some inuitive thinking. It's best described as a first-person puzzle platformer imo.

    Oh, and I especially like the fact that the news is coming to print! I subscribe to Game Informer and am pleased that print hasn't been totally killed by on-line. First, its hard to wait for my 12-page feature on Portal 2, then the long wait for the game to come out! Please let it be on time! :)

    Never really a major fan of the game, Portal Prelude I believe is just a demo of the first couple levels? Looking forward to a new graphical engine for the next generation of HL, CS, and TF!

    I haven't played the first portal yet. I know I should, I know it's supposed to be great but I just haven't gotten it yet.

    Portal was good, but I'd like to see the next installment of HL2 even more. Hopefully they release both at the same time again.

    Original game was better than expected. Had a very clever storyline and great ending. If you like some mind puzzles. You will love this.

    It's good to hear that Portal will be released already since Portal I is short. The great thing about it is that the video game is very original and new to gamers' tastes...

    Thanks, that sounds much more appealing. I'll check out the first one. I haven't bought a game since borderlands so I kinda need something to play.

    Great news! I played the first one and really liked it, which is saying a lot because I'm not a hard core gamer. I'll certainly try to grab this one when it's released.

    I think I'm going to go over my projected video game budget! It's a good thing I have a good job! But Valve, please release Half-Life 2: Episode 3 already!!!
