It is a console port. Doesn't mean it's a bad console port.

I dont understand why people get upset when others criticize valve as if valve needs your reassurance.

Valve makes more per employee than almost any company on earth and believe me needs nothing from anyone.

That could skew credibility of the article if 4chan (or similar) members did that at release, including some of the quoted responses. 4chan (or similar) is so large though it would be difficult if not impossible to know whether someone is just messing around or the response is true. Might have some of my friends who are members of 4chan do some searching to see if anything was mentioned about doing that.

Poor porting? I played it through 3 times, and it worked like a gem every single time. What are those crybabies whining about? The fact it says "Please don't turn off your console" every once in a while? Wow, that's really going to detract from gameplay, isn't it? Those 6 words are known for giving people cancer, aren't they?

And they're also complaining about the store, which has ZERO effect on gameplay, and can be ignored COMPLETELY with no loss. Where's the ground for complaint? Oh yeah, there isn't one.

Selfish bastards.

Funny how if this was CoD, everyone would be bashing it, but if it's the Almighty Valve, then don't dare to say a word!

I hate paid DLC of any kind, deal with it.

The game should be rated on everything it does, including the store.

Just like those 1 star reviewers amazon / newegg (probably) has.
