I am a huge fan of the original game. What Valve thought would be a fun little project, it blew up and was a huge hit. Now, nearly three years later, we have Portal 2.

I'm happy to see GlaDOS is back and is much creepier and sinister than before, yet her jokes do make you laugh out loud. The puzzles are more complicated and wholly satisfying. All around this is a great puzzle shooter.

And Stephen Merchant is a welcome addition. There is something about the circular eye I don't trust, but his voice makes the little robot very human.

I highly recommend this game for those that like puzzlers and shooters alike.

Is anyone else playing Portal 2? Thoughts?

That sounds like a blast. Not sure how co-op will work between someone using a keyboard/mouse vs controller pad. Could be interesting... :)

Chapter 3 and having a blast! Funniest game I've played in years, Stephen Merchant's character is absolutely brilliant.

Finished it this morning. While the new song isn't as good as Still Alive (and let's face it... that's tough to follow) the overall ending more than makes up for it. While not exceptionally difficult it is very rewarding.

Good game, but I found it to be a bit tough at times, when you're exiled to the derelict areas (with J.K Simmons on the speaker system) the places to go aren't quite as linear to figure out. I had to resort to looking for online help twice throughout the whole game, but thankfully not on the last boss who I beat on my third attempt, placing that last node seemed to be a trial and error affair.

So many good quotes in the game, but I think my all time favorite has to be GladOS shouting, "Yeah! Take the lemons!" in agreement with Cole.

(Minor spoilers... but here is a clip...)

just finished it, probably the best playing experience I've ever come across. There will be trouble if there is no Portal 3 though.

I agree that it has succeeded in wrapping up the story, but I would not mind a Portal 3. The game is too damn fun, and GladOS is too likable.

On a more annoying note, Jurassic Park PC/Mac has been delayed until Autumn :x

Good news is everyone who pre-ordered gets a full refund and a free TT game of their choice. Win! ish

I doubt we'll get a part 3, I think Valve can only count to 2.

I'm taking my time with this like crazy, really savoring all of the dialogue. I consider this game to be a comedy masterpiece as well as an incredibly rewarding game. I have found I have a habit of ridiculously over complicating the puzzles, when the answer is really quite simple. Just another way that the game is smarter than me.

Favorite quote: "Oh hi. How are you holding up? Because I'm a potato."

They have been dragging their heals with Half-Life 2: Episode 3 for some reason, though I'm beginning to suspect it has more to do with Portal than anything else. Portal obviously takes place in the same universe, so I have to wonder if Valve is actually working on Episode 3 and Half-Life 3 at the same time. I wouldn't be at all surprised to have them release Ep. 3 and have it be revealed HL3 will be released a month to six months after, as sort of a precursor. And I wouldn't be surprised if in HL2:Ep 3 or HL3 we don't meet up with GladOS again. The unusually long time could be them blending the stories together.

Or they could just be slow.
