First look at Portal 2 images
Portal 2 is official. Here's what Valve has released so far.

After years of fans crossing their fingers and a week of deciphering curious images patched into the original Portal, Valve has confirmed that a sequel is on the way.

Portal is a shooter without bullets. The player's gun fires dimension-bending doorways that allow the main character to instantly travel from one area to another. Trapped in a labyrinthine laboratory, the protagonist must puzzle her way through the game's many traps. Simple yet canny " and with a healthy dash of humor " Portal surprised many gamers. Some even argue that this stocking-stuffer title outshone the more anticipated Half-Life and Team Fortress games that came bundled with Portal in the 2007 hit Orange Box for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

For the rest of the story....

I have been anticipating this sequel to one of the greatest PC games ever made.

@Diest TKO,
The greatest song written for a game ... EVER!
Quote:
This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of beta.
We're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
THAT WAS A JOKE.
HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
Anyway, this cake is great.
It's so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.
STILL ALIVE (x2)

Portal 2 release date delayed due to 'public safety concerns'
The much-anticipated Portal 2 won't open this year

Kind of a bummer in terms of gaming news. Still its my second most anticipated video game next to Half Life 2: Episode 3.

Crying or Very sad

Is it weird to dedicate a song to a video game that hasn't been published yet?


While I'm waiting for the games release, I broke a long standing rule not to watch any available Portal 2 game trailers that might spoil the game related play and possible surprises.

Below is several game related trailers. You got to see it to believe me when I say this game can convert nongamers away from their hideous addiction to faux video games like Farmville and Text Twist.

I spent some wads of time listing my favorite garden books, and other such. It was as nothing.

No cute video will just make me be quiet.

@ossobuco,
Really, far as I have known of the people running a2k, and far as I like them, which is a lot, they have had no brains re what is going on re land planning. I might as well have talked to the moon, all that time, pro or con.

I gave up after my millionth post, re land use. It's been years since I tried to post on that.

Low interest, of course.
I spent too many hours trying to get anyone to talk to each other.

Lose a thread? criminy

@tsarstepan,
The PC version of Portal 2 is on sale for $30 at Gamestop.com and some Game Stop stores if you're lucky to grab the $30 copies before they sell out.
