E3 2010 -Portal 2

Coming out next year for PC, Xbox360….and what? The PS3 as well? Why the surprise. Valve didn’t handle the Orange Box port on PS3, and the head of the company always poo-poo’d the PS3 as being too hard to program for, etc etc. Yet he comes out himself at this year’s E3 to announced it. I guess money talks. Either way, I can’t wait, the 1st game was one of my favs, and this looks to be another favorite.

Portal 2 announced!

Hellz yes! Portal was one of my favorite games EVER. It’s not everyday that the first person genre gives you something new to do instead of just shooting people. But also something smart such as trying to solve insane room puzzles that, if existed….well, would probably be like watching Lost 🙂 Anyway, by way of Kotaku, here’s the Gamestop product description, promising that the game will drop in the fall on Xbox360 and PC.

“Coming this holiday. Portal 2 is the sequel to 2007’s Game of the Year and draws from the award-winning formula of innovative game play, story, and music that earned the original over 70 industry accolades. Features single and multiplayer co-op modes. The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game. The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.”

Can’t wait…speaking of Lost, you guys check out any of the Paleyfest panel stuff last week? Funny stuff when asked about a Lost themed Disney ride.

“Damon says there’s no need for an island to have a Lost-themed ride at Disney World: “Just put people in a black room, spin them around and punch them in the face and tell them ‘You just had the Lost experience.’” So true, 🙂
