Default Re: Official Portal 2 Thread

I installed both portal and portal 2 on my HTPC and portal 2 loaded and ran fine. Smooth as butter at max settings.

portal 1 says that it's launching the game and I see hl2.exe show up for a split second in the task manager but then it goes away and nothing happens...

I loaded up several other source engine games and they all work fine. just portal 1 that for some reason will not launch.

only thing I can think of is to delete the local content so I did that and have it re-downloading hoping that something just didn't install right?

sucks cause I want to make another run through the first game before firing up the 2nd one.

I just got it tonight and had a ~11 GB download. It runs and looks great, I love the decaying, overgrown, broken down look it has. Some of the electronica ambient music is really awesome, too.

I think it's good, but I think the 40-$50 is a bit much.

Took me around 7 hours to beat, but that's single player only. Co-op will extend that immensely. Also the ending was quite worth the $50.
