  • Blog Post: Insulting Robots? Deadly Tests? A clapping potato? Yep. It's Portal 2.

    Portal came out of nowhere. It was originally included in The Orange Box. Being on the same disc as The Half-Life 2 games and Team Fortress 2, it was overlooked by most everyone until they actually played it. What started out as a mere mod of Half-Life 2 became a puzzling yet short masterpiece that became... More

  • Blog Post: Portal 2: Great puzzles, great lines, great game.

    I went to Gamestop one day with Portal 2 and CoD: Black Ops fighting to be my purchase. It just so happened that Gamestop had a sale going on for new Portal 2 games, so I decided to buy it. When I was able to set it into the disc tray, I didn't really know exactly what to expect, having not played... More

  • Blog Post: Portal 2=Amazement

    This is by far one of my favorite games, ever. The story as simple as it is, is still very good, very fitting to the world of Portal.

  • Blog Post: WGWC 2.1: Portal 2 Review

    When it first released in 2007 as part of The Orange Box as a sort of experiment, the original Portal had little in the way of fanfare or expectations. It went on to become a breakout success, combining mind-blowing gameplay, pitch perfect pacing, and fantastic writing to create an experience that resonated... More
  • Blog Post: Brilliant aside from constant loading screens.

    Excellent puzzle platforming and humor. The only drawback is the ten seconds of load screen that interrupts every three to five minutes of gameplay. I'ven't had a chance to try co-op as PSN is, I believe, still currently down. More

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Portal 2 has been a game that I’ve wanted to play since Gabe Newell’s rather shocking announcement for its release at E3 2010.
