Default Official Portal 2 Thread


Available: April 19th, 2011

Quote:
Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.

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.

I will probably pick this up for PS3 as you get a copy for the PC along with it.

Two copies for $10 extra? Yes please.

Haha no way. You link it to your Steam account and you can play with PC users. So you will be able to play PS3 with PC and vice versa.

Of course aiming the portal gun will be hard as hell with the PS3 analog sticks, so I will stick to the mouse, but it's still nice to have both.
