Post Re: Portal 2 - Assume The Party Escort Submission Position
happened to me once, then it worked. I've gotten pretty far in this so far.

Thoughts,
-more story
-more music
- if you're already pretty handy with the game, most of the puzzles won't be that hard so far

I love all the new puzzle elements btw.

Millions of man hours on potato sack games? Worth a few early hours of Portal 2. Worth it so hard.

Yeah I doubt any of these puzzles will be as "difficult" as the Still Alive expansion. I hope not, because I got stuck in that.

I want to take my time with Portal 2. It will be over way to fast. :(

Anything short of a Chell/GladOS/Freeman threesome was bound to disappoint people who were susceptible to all the hype.

More of the same but with new puzzle elements and co-op? Sign me the f**k up!

I've only hit two of the many new puzzle elements and they're wonderful. I can't wait for the rest. I'd consider leaving work early but I wouldn't be fooling anyone.

I'm already pretty deep into the single player and I got stuck for the second time. Serious Spolier=>.
I have found myself laughing out loud more at this game than at any of the games that intend to be witty or funny. Cave Johnson is one crazy bastard.

I beat the single-player about an hour ago. That was brilliant, a worthy successor to the original. I won't say more yet, because spoilers.

I'm not sure why players are rating it so badly on Metacritic though: the length, even without co-op, seems sufficient. As for the item store, it's no different to the one in TF2 - it's just cosmetic stuff. Maybe people were pissed that the ARG didn't unlock the game as early as was hoped? I guess maybe I would care more about all this stuff if I wasn't distracted by how great the game is.

Taking a break, forgot what chamber I'm on. I decided to take the break because I'm too busy trying to avoid something in a cage and not trying to figure out the solution.

Just got to the repulsion gel. That s**t is awesome. I think Valve has seriously outdone themselves in terms of environment. I found myself slack-jawed for most of the part leading up to the repulsion gel.

Thus far this game is pretty brilliant. I don't understand what the complaining is about.

Done and done, man that was a joy to play through. I can't wait to do it all over again with the commentary on. First things first, Co-Op!

I must be almost done, I just got to chapter 8 before I had to call it quits. My eyeballs are ready to fall out of their sockets.

Stem and I played quite a bit of the co-op tonight, and oh how we laughed. Valve sure does know how to make a game I like to play.

Just beat the game last night and then immediately proceeded to play thought half of it again with commentary on. I just love Valve so god damned much.

Post Re: Portal 2 - Assume The Party Escort Submission Position
This game is pretty long so far and I'm loving every moment of it. The atmosphere and depth of some of the later areas is fantastic. It's really hard to stop playing, but I'm finally calling it quits for the night and will have to continue tomorrow.

Post Re: Portal 2 - Assume The Party Escort Submission Position
The only chamber I got stuck on for a while was the first one with the conversion gel. I totally agree with Hale, the atmosphere in some of the areas of the game is some of the best Valve has done since Half-Life 2. I was looking around slack-jawed at the area . Source still holds up real well after all these years.
