[AS] Portal 2 countdown - Page 41

post #401 of 1269
Wow, the "Icy_Murderous_I.mp3" Audiosurf level is BS. I just got every colored block and no grays.. no gold. I don't see how it's possible to get higher than 99,560 with Ninja Mono, like it says.

Now if you look at all the people involved in the ARG, in this case, taking the member-count of the NELIPOT Steam group, which is now, 54,000 members, with 34,000 members online (16,000 ingame). With the current activity of the ARG and people playing the Potato games as of this moment (25,000), we can safely say that around 5,000-10,000 people, give or take a few thousand, have worked on completing GLaDOS's reboot.

So when all the games except Killing Floor is done, we'll have around 16,000 people working on Killing Floor's bar. This doesn't even account for people who don't own Killing Floor (me included), so for the benefit of the doubt, only 10% will be docked. 14,000 players focusing on Killing Floor, compared to the 6,000 now, when the other games in the ARG are not yet complete.

Currently, the ETA for Killing Floor is 7 days to completion. With a little more than double the current rate of Killing Floor, we'll be able to cut down the ETA of Killing Floor to a little more than 3 days. That's somewhere on Tuesday afternoon.

I'm throwing the idea on the table that this is a huge marketing ploy that won't get us Portal 2 early. A few hours at most.

But the most this game could possibly launch early would be 10 hours, if all of the games are completed. This site...

Is completely wrong about the way the timer works. Like i said i don't know if anyone mentioned or noticed this yet, i didn't read 38 pages to see.

EDIT: Also i seam to notice that Glados picks a certain game to have an accelerated "CPU" rate. Seems to be the AAAAAAAAAA! game right now. So i think its best to focus your efforts there if you have that game.

I've been observing the counter for around 24 hours now and it has become clear to me you are both right. This won't get anywhere with releasing Portal 2 early, but it is a very effective marketing by Valve to turn people's attention to indie games.

In a way Portal was itself derived from an indie game and upon release it was put into the Orange Box as a safety measure as Valve had no idea if the public would receive it well.

Some of the later less standardizes levels were a bit annoying ,at least for me since I am colorblind,because trying to find a portal friendly surface was difficult. Overall I would give it a Potato out of 10. (9/10)
Nope and if any one does please take it to the private messages.

You pirated it on consoles when you could have played it on your awesome pc? Bah your loss.

Anyone still looking to do a 2 pack deal here for the game?

If your not pirating then how you get yesterday?

Kinda BS to post your playing experience on a thread geared towards us waiting for release. Just sayin.
