[AS] Portal 2 countdown - Page 121

post #1201 of 1269
People on metacritic are calling it a console port too. But 4 hours only? Bummer

Quote:
Many users claim the game can be completed in four hours. The PC version of the game asks players, “Please don't turn off your console” as it saves. Portal 2 includes an online store that is charging for cosmetic upgrades to character models in the game’s co-op mode. Valve also ran a “potato sack” marketing campaign. Players who purchased a bundle of indie games helped to unlock Portal 2 before its official release date. Users have labelled this a cash-grab, claiming that if the game was ready, it should have been released.
Meanwhile, publications have been unanimous in their praise so far. Strategy Informer writes, “Portal 2 not only betters the original Portal, but completely annihilates it.” Eurogamer says simply, “Portal is perfect,” while Giant Bomb claims that the game “elevates Portal from an odd, memorable experiment to one of the most significant series in Valve's stable with a unique voice and an incredible level of quality that all developers should aspire to.”
Gameplanet will publish its review of Portal 2 in the days ahead.

Honestly, the menus (and even a pre-rendered cutscene in there) did seem console-ish to me, especially since I'm used to the traditional Source game menus. But seriously, such a small complaint has no effect on the greatness of the game to me.
Also, it took me just over six hours to finish the singleplayer, and that is about the time everyone I know is reporting.
Sure, you could finish the first Portal in ten minutes or whatever, but why the hell would you want to? Applies the same way here.

I still haven't seen the "turn off your console" screen. When does that show up?

Also, I was wondering how you were supposed to do one of the tests... I think I did it cheap.

I think it's the first test with the "speed goop". There's a button that raises a bridge, that will let you fly across a gap with speed from the goo. I couldn't figure out where a box to hold the button down was, so with the speed go and portals I managed to get enough height to make a portal next to the exit, and finished the test. Is there a box somewhere to hold the button down? lol

I was going to sell Portal 2 and some other games for cheap, but it got blamed within 10 minutes. Apparently selling Steam games isn't allowed on here, even though I can probably pick out 10 threads selling them on the first page.

Double standard much?

You can't sell steam accounts. Steam will disable the account if they find out you sold it.

Only thing you can do is all go in on two packs and such like that.

I didn't say I was selling my account. I was selling games I have more than one of. What makes that any different than me buying a 2, 4, or 5-pack?

It was no different than this thread that was made buy another Gameserver Moderator that has been up for over 2 days and sold 3 games. It's the very first thread listed under For Sale->Software.

It took me 8 hours to get through the single player, and another 6 to get through the co-op. And it's flipping GREAT!!! It's FAR greater than Portal 1. The story line is balls-tightening fantastic.
post #1208 of 1269
Is it just me or have they changed how you flip as you go through portals? I find myself getting less disorientated if I go through a portal and come out upside down, for example, than I did in Portal 1.

Crazy 9000, I don't think that counts as a cheaty way to solve the puzzle, just an "alternative strategy"

How are you "supposed" to do it then? . I couldn't even find where a cube would be.

If 60€ is full price to you, then you either have way more money than me, or you like to get ripped off by places like Saturn and Mediaworld
It's not € 40, it's 37,99, and it was for € 34,19 on pre-order from Steam, which is what I paid for it.

Now what you always pay for games has more to do with what kind of games you play or when you buy them. Some games like COD: Black Ops come with that price tag. Can you find them on pre-order for € 32 ?

€ 60 is full price for a blockbuster game - to the market, not to me. I was just correcting your assessment of what the market considers full price - no way € 32 is full price of a blockbuster; I wasn't making a personal statement of what I consider to be a good deal, it's two completely different things.

And if you want my opinion, that is just a rip-off. I never bought a game that expensive, except Monkey Island 2 back in 1992 (and I would again, but games that good are very rare). I too am not generally willing to pay more than, say around € 45, max € 49 for a spectacular game (I would pay that for HL2: Ep 3).

As of late I buy all my games from Steam, and there are great deals out there on the sales, which is where I make most of my Steam purchases; I generally only buy 1 or 2 games outside of Steam if the price is really good and Steam doesn't have it or doesn't have it at that price.
