  • Blog Post: Portal 2 Review: Liking this is no Puzzle!

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE When it comes to comedy, one has to admit that the writing process must be pretty difficult for popular shows such as Parks and Recreation or How I Met Your Mother to be as funny as they are. The writing as well as... More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2: The review (Good Job Valve)

    Okay, here is the thing, this is an amazing game and it is the perfect sequel to the first portal. It is a good game don't get me wrong but there are some things that they could have left out. For example, some of the levels are very, VERY, VERY! hard and I know this is supposted to be hard but Valve... More
  • Blog Post: Now you're thinking with portals... and excursion funnels, and hard light tunnels, and kinetic gels, and thermal discouragement beams...

    There were times when playing Portal 2 that I didn't know quite how to feel about it. My initial instinct was to try to compare it to the experience of playing the first Portal for the very first time, but it became clear pretty quickly that that was neither fair nor feasible. To begin with, the... More
  • Blog Post: best game ever.

    I am not a super hardcore gamer but i got addicted to minecraft but after playing portal 2 it is not as fun because portal 2 overshadows it so much :) More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2 is a Great Game

    While not perfect, Portal 2 is an amazing game. Great physics, well thought out puzzles, and endlessly funny dialog. It is not that different from the first Portal, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Lots more types of puzzles, and some really amazing environments. More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2 - A New Standard of Creativity in Gaming

    Since I’ve only and probably will only play the single player campaign, that’s all I’ll be reviewing in this review (I don’t like playing co-op with strangers, or online multiplayer that much in general), though I’m sure the quality would apply to both sides. In short, Portal... More
  • Blog Post: Going Back To A Place You Loved

    When it comes down to it, the average gamer knows who Valve is and understands what kind of games they bring out and Portal 2 is no exception to this. Anyone that played Portal can tell you that it is a short and quick puzzle game that people have grown to love and appreciate, but Portal 2 is a whole... More
  • Blog Post: Humorous Narrative And Engaging Gameplay Blend Perfectly Together

    Originally met with no expectations, Portal's initial entry was an incredible slice of gaming nirvana packed into a budget compilation of Valve titles. Once people realized how masterfully crafted the game was, you couldn't talk about video games without someone mentioning cakes and lies. Valve... More
  • Blog Post: Beautiful...just beautiful

    An addictive game beginning to end, even with such a straightforward concept. Adding more depth to the first, such as the use of gels and high beam bridges, along with awesome voice actors, all of them either robots or pre-recorded messages, making me "feel" for the characters, this game is...

  • Blog Post: Portal 2 Review: Extreme Fun With Science

    In short, Portal 2 is an extraordinary game. It stimulates the mind with its clever puzzles, it amuses with its hilarious dialogue, and delivers a satisfying experience. Let's get down to the main part: the gameplay. Describing Portal 2 as "Clever" is an understatement, in my opinion. The... More

  • Blog Post: VALVe really hit the target this time!

    I believe know that you will have fun with this game. You don't even have to like puzzles to like this game. It is much longer than the original, and also way better with a new physics engine. The storyline is much more interesting, and the game offers you the experience of looking at some of Aperture... More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2: Humorus, creative, and extremely fun.

    This game was amazingly fun, I didn't want to stop playing. With its increasingly difficult puzzles and indepth humorous personalities in the characters, portal 2 was even more enjoyable that its predesecor and thats just the single player. Co-op was extremely fun as well. Playing as either a short... More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2 Review: This was a triumph.

    That tagline is ripped straight from a Rock Band set-list - I never played the critically acclaimed ‘Portal’. This was my first adventure with the magical portal gun, my first foray into Aperture science. This is my review of the highly anticipated sequel, Portal 2. Gameplay At it’s... More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2 Will Break Your Brain, But Make You Feel Good About It

    With the original Portal, Valve created a short but sweet game with a unique gameplay mechanic in which you create and walk through portals to solve puzzles. Not only was it new, but it was fun and challenging, and it was incredibly satisfying whenever you solved a tough puzzle. Flash forward to Portal... More
  • Blog Post: A Shining Example of How Puzzle Games Should Be Made Nowadays

    In an age when the pure adventure game is all but forgotten and when puzzle games are generally relegated to Facebook's endless online Flash-based offerings, Valve provides players a true puzzle adventure game, which demonstrates how to bring both genres into the modern age. Living through the eyes... More
  • Blog Post: Portal 2 similar to Portal

    As much as I love Portal this feels like Portal 1+ I simply don't like the idea of paying $55 dollars for something that feels like an upgrade rather than a full game! (kinda like CoD where you pay $60 a year for stuff that could be easily be added through dlc for anywhere between $10-$35) I love... More
  • Blog Post: A great follow up to an already great game.

    Valve's sequel to its game Portal is one that should be experienced by many people. The first portal left off with a bit of a cliffhanger that made fans of the game drooling over the sequel. I'm going to try to write this review without spoiling much but there isn't much to be spoiled. The... More
