Valve / Portal 2 Madness

    In preparation for Portal 2's release next week, it seems Valve is having fun hyping it up, in an odd way:

    Since I own Audiosurf, I checked out the "test" on it, and it's quite interesting. I'm tempted to buy the Potato Sack just because of this gimmick now. Better do so soon if I want to though; sale on it ends when Portal 2 is released.

    So, a lot of people are (in my opinion, justifiably) pissed off because the whole cool-sounding gimmick was extremely underwhelming for a lot of people. A lot of effort for just a few hours early release, and a lot of unexplained mechanics in their ARG.

    Uh, there's no question there, I guess. Thoughts?

    What disappointed me was that the initial countdown was only part of the ARG in the first place. Those have never really been too interesting to me, possibly because the methods used to play them are really esoteric and seem to cater to people who analyze encrypted information and conspiracy nuts.

Howdy, Stranger!
