[AS] Portal 2 countdown - Page 38

post #371 of 1269
yeah.... for the amount of effort people seem to be putting in... bit disappointing.



sorry. not buying those games to make portal 2 come out even 3 days early. i already have PLENTY of things to play.... ok i might for 3 days. but the 12 hours that this will earn and it being a seeming cash grab... NOPE.


now, had they REALLY been doing a distributed comp project... some folding.... that would have been amazing.

love you valve.... but this is lame

The potato thing is kind of a fun challenge. I'm going to shut everyone else out IRL and try to get them all. Up to 7 so far.

So over a thousand people playing TWEOTW for 10hours brought the release forward by ...

50 minutes?

really?

I agree with you up there ^ , folding@GLaDOS would've been a much better idea. Give us all a target to hit, and fold away. That way we can use our many epic folding rigs, rather than the one Steam account we are allowed, and pointlessly leave indie games idling in the taskbar

Well the idea is to actually play the games, not idle them, but yeah...

playing them isn't going to be enough though, unless there's a masssive influx of players this weekend, people are going to have to idle more than one game to get it done

hence why it makes it a bit daft
post #378 of 1269
from what i heard the potato's act like a multiplier, so i think its still possible

It's passed almost 24h and it isn't even halfway through, I don't think it will be worth it... But let's see.
