Portal 2 Announced


#1021

It, uh, really wasn't. Twice the length, easily.


#1022

okay. Good to know I'm not crazy when portal 2 feels significantly longer than the first. Anyway, I feel four or five hours was a perfect length for the first, and I personally feel portal 2 should have been that long as well


#1023

My Steam stats are not accurate for Portal 2 so I cannot stay for certain, but 2 did not feel twice as long as 1. It also did not take me 8 hours, but closer to 6. Of course, I thought Portal 2 was much easier than Portal 1.


#1024

So: Music Pack 3 is out, and the first DLC is coming free next Wednesday. It's called Peer Review.


#1025

Aaaaand the DLC is mostly Co-op. Great. Who has time to play with me between the hours of 6:30-7:30AM daily?

Co-op only? That sucks. I thought it was going to be time trial SP stuff like the ones in Portal. Disappointing.


#1027

There will be some challenge mode single player content.

But the coop will be all story-based and stuff (yay!).


#1028

Whew!

My ten year-old daughter is more psyched about this than I am, and I'm pretty psyched. She may get to break the "no video games during the school week" rule because my need to play Portal 2 co-op is more important than her need for consistency and focus. Right?

Besides, what's more educational than out-thinking GLADOS with her Dad?


#1031

So Microsoft did relent on their no free DLC policy afterall. Very quietly.


#1032

They've allowed free DLC before, but the company has had to pay to have it put up. I don't know if that's changed.


#1033

impressive explanation.


#1034

DLC today!

But I suppose that Valve, being in the Pacific coast and all that, will release today the DLC when i am ready to go to bed.


#1035

Downloading now ?

D:

763Mb!


#1036

Well, for once i am happy of being a big mouth.


#1037

They're also bad puzzles in a lot of cases. Many of them boil down to "figure out what surface will take a portal," which is maybe the least fun type of gameplay in these games.


#1038

So, because i have to download the full game again to try the dlc:

Does anyone know what is exactly the new content of this new DLC?


#1039

The game add-on features a brand new cooperative track continuing the story of Atlas and Peabody. Along with single and multiplayer challenge modes (track your time to complete them), and leaderboards.


#1040

The single-player includes new maps/puzzles as well, yes?
