How not to be an entitled douchebag on the internet: Valve edition

How not to be an entitled douchebag on the internet: Valve edition

“Dear Valve, nice idea but you will not ever live it down. You shall be ranked among Activision in the evil department” This reaction to Valve’s recent Portal 2 ARG hijinx from a random twitter user is an example of how to do it very wrong.

Portal 2 ARG’s Big Secret? PLAY INDIE GAMES, HUMAN

So that big countdown on the Aperture Science website that’s been the talk of the internet? It hit zero just a few minutes ago. Speculation was that Portal 2 would get an early release on Steam, and the rumors are true… to a point. Well played, Valve. Well played.

Aperture Science brings you further investment opportunities: Turrets!

It’s April and I could not be more anxious to get my hands on some Portal 2 action (in 13 days, if you’re into the whole counting thing). Luckily for me, Valve has decided to poke my already-convulsing-with-anticipation brain with another teaser.

This is actually the second advertisement Valve has cranked out for the upcoming Portal 2, but unlike its predecessor, this one is actually funny.

Saw two places selling it with the same deal and thought I’d share the savings.

Chell looks much better in Portal 2

Much to the avail of our Jamie Gibson for his Portal 2 experiment, I’m not very good at not keeping an ear to the ground about new games.  Portal 2’s protagonist, Chell, has gotten a revamp of her image.

In an age where we are drip fed the latest news, games, films, TV etc, I’m trying to do something a little different. Keeping myself in the dark.

Portal 2 Delayed…Again

Portal 2 Delayed…Again

If you thought the delay of Portal 2 to February 2011 was disappointing, you may need a tissue for this one. Valve today has unveiled a new release date of “the week of April 18th” for the sequel to the well-received psychotic puzzler. Why Valve needed the extra two months remains to be seen, but […]

When we first heard Portal 2 was being pushed to the loose release date of 2011, we immediately expected the title would hit shelves during the holiday season of next year. Not the case, says Valve, as they today slapped a release date of February 9, 2011 for the PC, […]

Valve Letting Old Memes be Old Memes

Valve Letting Old Memes be Old Memes

In a talk with Gamasutra, Portal 2 Erik Wolpaw stated that the upcoming sequel will be cakeless. He, like yours truly, is sick of the old “the cake is a lie” meme and wants the sequel to tread new ground in story and gameplay elements. But fear not, Portal fans, both the cubes and GLaDOS […]
