I picked up a pre-order copy just so I could gift Jason a copy of Portal. Now, if Valve could just get their asses working on HL2:Ep3, HL3, or whatever the next one is supposed to be.

Ugh... I'm so sick of hats in TF2. It started out so innocent with a back burner, sandwich, and such, and look what a mess it's turned into, grrrrr!!!!!

Back on topic... portal2 is now available for pre-load. I'm currently bouncing around from 800Kb/s - 1.3Mb/s. Currently at 30%. :)

So, how far are all of you? I think I'm in the 3rd room/puzzle of the Reunion chapter.

what a slow poke! :pbt: ;) I've finished, think both X and Huh have finished. We've all tackled the co-op too, that was pretty fun/entertaining. Hit one of us up if you need someone to run through it with. sounds like they are going to release more co-op maps in the future, which I would hope/imagine so, since there is essentially an equivalent to TF2's back/item system (robot enrichment). Plus they are supposedly releasing the SDK eventually, so that means we may see community maps, which should keep things fresh and interesting.

I try to stretch every dollar, so I play for about an hour a night. Jason just got the PS3 version which came with a free PC version. Too bad friggin playstation network got hacked and has been down for a week. PSN needs to be running in order to install the PC version, grrrr!!!! - otherwise he and I could be playing together right now.

...and I just made it to chapter 8. :P

Yep, portal 2 is the first cross platform co-op. You have to link your PSN account to your steam account. I'd imagine now that the ground work is laid, more steam games will come to the PS3 and be co-op. Unfortunatley, like I said, to get the PC version installed, PSN needs to be running so that you can link the accounts and prove you have the PS3 version, grrrr!
