Valve, creators of the hit franchise Portal, are going to be releasing an in-game editor via DLC for Portal 2 early next year. Valve has released a few sneak peeks at the tool currently in development:
Stay tuned in with PixelatedGeek for any developments in this story.
For those of you that have been enjoying Portal 2‘s soundtrack — “Songs to Test By” — the final volume has been released.
The final volume contains 24 tracks, from the end of the single-player campaign and the co-op missions. The best part: it is available for free. To date, the first two releases have been downloaded over two million times. Pretty impressive for a video game soundtrack.
Additionally, it seems that when higher-ups at Valve announce that the first Portal 2 DLC will be released “sometime in September,” they mean that you’ll hear about itsometime in September. And that would be on the very last dayof September. Nonetheless, the official announcement is that the first DLC — entitled “Peer Review” — will be available to download, for free, this coming Wednesday, October 5.
These days, people can take offense at pretty much anything if they look hard enough, but I never expected that Portal 2 would offend someone to the point that they felt it needed to be brought to the attention of the media.
North Carolina resident Neal Stapel was playing the game with his adopted daughter when a comment mocking Chell for being adopted came about. As the father of an adopted child, Stapel took offense and contacted the media about the story. However, the actual reporting of the situation, which contains spoilers for those that have not played Portal 2, was flawed, at best.
If you ever thought about experimenting with Portal Technology, today’s the day.
Have you ever wanted to work for a top secret science facility? Or how about being a human guinea pig?
Interested in the exciting life of interacting with an advanced artificial Intelligence? If you already do that and are sworn to secrecy, well good for you. But if you are like the rest of us- how about picking up Portal 2? Portal 2 it lets you live out these fantasies.
Having only been available for a week and a half, Valve confirmed today that a downloadable content pack for Portal 2 is already on its way and will be made available this coming summer.
Set to be released on all four platforms, this first DLC pack will include new test chambers, leaderboards, a challenge mode for both single player and cooperative modes, and more. Having been a big fan of both Portal and Portal 2, I can’t describe how glad it makes me to see more content on the way.
This morning, a rare disease has hit the globe. This new disease has caused many middle-class workers and college students to call in sick for the day. We don’t know much about this disease, but so far, scientists from Aperture Laboratories have learned this much: The first medical report being filed for this disease has was filed in Bellevue, Washington last night, Monday, April 18th at approximately 10 p.m. (PDT).
Since then, many workers in a managerial position and college professors have reported a large influx of sick employees and students. Below is evidence collected around the globe, testimony to the disease’s enormous impact.
It’s another week, which means plenty of new Things to Look Forward to. So what’s coming out this week? Stay tuned for a full release list. Here are a couple of the highlights. Be warned it appears that Glados is back in action with Portal 2 out for all major systems. Looking for some INPUT??? Well Johnny 5 gets his Input on in the beloved classic Short Circuit 2. Meanwhile in theaters Pattison is back this time in the Circus, with Water for Elephants.
If you see anything missing drop a comment, or let us know what you’re looking forward to.
About three and a half years ago (wait, has it really been that long?), Valve released unto the world The Orange Box, featuring the latest entry in the Half-Life series, Half-Life 2: Episode 2. And while I’m sure most people bought it for Half-Life and probably Team Fortress 2, it was Portal that ended up taking gamers by storm. Now, over three years later, the long awaited Portal 2 is finally here.
A hit so unexpected that even Valve was taken by surprise by its immense popularity, Portal became an overnight sensation among the gaming community, spawning at least two or three internet memes in the process. As such, a sequel seemed inevitable and, now that Portal proved to be immensely popular, it was time for Valve to devote their attention to a full-sized sequel to appease Portal fans asking for more cake.
But, is Portal 2 a worthy successor? Yes…yes it is. Very much so.
