Portal 2
« on: June 16, 2010, 01:13:03 AM »
Was there not already a topic for this game?  I'm kind of surprised, but I couldn't find one so here we go.

Anyway, IGN has a video demo up here:
http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/objects/64330/portal-2/videos/e310_portal2_demo_01_061510.html

The second part even gets into some of the new gameplay elements.  The tractor beam things in particular are going to be wild.  The possibilities are endless...

Wow - that looks cool and scary at the same time.  Hopefully, they haven't added too many new elements - you know, broken the system.

Portal = Game of the Generation for me. I played it a few months back and I was blown away.

Will be getting Portal 2 for the PS3 though in order to show my support for Valve on the PS3.

Lots of dust and a couple cobwebs on this thread but:

Cross-platform chat and multiplayer on the PS3 version. Huh, not bad at all.

Getting the 360 version in protest then?

If you buy a PS3 copy, you get the PC/Mac version for free.

Wow, this is really something, they're giving the PC version away with the PS3 version? Cross platform play and chat, cloud-based storage for saves, man, Gabe wasn't kidding.

That is a big pile of the good kind of crazy. :)  I'll be getting the PS3 version, in that case.

Let's face it, for PS3/PC owners that aren't elitist this is a win/win proposition. Especially for those who are iffy about being able to run the game on their PC for whatever reason.

Yeah, that's true. I was just being silly. :p

There's no reason to be mad over this, but this doesn't stop elitist players to cry for weeks over this though.

I hope Valve is smart enough to support mice on the PS3.  The PS3 always had support for USB mice, but very few games actually take advantage of it.  If PS3 players are going to be playing alongside PC players anyway then you can throw out the whole "oh, it wouldn't be fair to the people who want to use the controller" argument.
