Portal 2

post #1 of 126
Thread Starter 
So who's getting Portal 2? I hadn't planned on getting it, because I ordered the Socom 4 bundle the same week, but I couldn't pass up the $5 off and $20 credit from Amazon. So I'll have both waiting from me when I get home Tuesday.

I pre-ordered it for PS3 since it comes with a free PC/Mac copy. Figure if I ever get around to building a HTPC, I'll be able to play this on it.

The net $35 cost is what sold me too. I'm sure it's one of those games you'll be able to find cheap a few months after release.

pre-ordered 2 weeks ago, replayed the original on XBox Arcade last weekend.
best.game.ever.

I've been waiting for it since the first mention of a sequel. Pre-ordered months back. Amazon claims they will honor all pre-orders, with the $5 off and $20 future credit... we'll see.

The only bad thing: I didn't anticipate liking Crysis2 so much, Portal will be competing for my time!

Yeah, PS3 version here. Also, there is some crazy Portal ARG with multiple game tie-ins going on right now on Steam. For example, The Ball just got a seven level pack of free Portal themed DLC.

wasn't going to get it... but for ~$35 it's hard to pass up.

Thanks for the heads up on the Amazon deal. I'll be ordering the PS3 version (for cross-platform play with PC).

Looks like it's getting rave reviews. IGN gave it a 9.5. Has a 95/100 so far on metacritic out of 13 pro reviews.

wish I could play this... first one was unplayable for me. Had me to the point of vomiting from nausea.

Take some dramamine and tough it out. It's worth it.

I checked the status this morning. Apparently, Amazon tacked on another $5 Credit. So with the discount and credits, this is effectively a $30 purchase for those that got this deal. Mine is will be delivered today, again no extra charge from Amazon Prime for same-day.

I'll play it while the wife watches Glee...

any information why? i mean reason? was it a price match somewhere else, etc?

i have preordered under the $20 credit, but the MSRP was $54.99.... did you order when the game was $59.99? Is your total coming out to $34.99, or $30?

I didn't expect it... I got the lowest price for pre-ordering, which was $54.99, and I got the $20 credit email, plus a separate, additional email with a $5 credit "for pre-ordering Portal 2". Check your amazon emails to see if both emails are grouped together (Gmail does that).

I pre-ordered on Feb. 3rd, if that's any clue.

Pre-ordered my 360 copy as well.. Can't wait for this, the first one was incredible, and for me was the most impressive part of the Orange Box. It re-invented the First-Person shooter, because you didn't actually shoot anyone. To make a puzzle game from that perspective, with a gun that shoots a entry and exit portal was inspired, not to mention GLADOS was the funniest and scariest villain I have seen in a long time. I actually have the Still Alive song on my MP3 player and love it. I want my Cake...
