Default Portal

I found this game very interesting. It was cool to play a shooter that required some thinking unlike a kill em all shooter. I love kill em all shooters but to have something different like Portal to work through puzzles was quite a nice change.

This is hardly a shooter or a fps its a puzzle game and nothing more. They will probably expand on it hopefully but we'll see.

I love the ending. I think it will be in episode 3 because of the ending.

I just finished the advanced challenges and it begs the question: who comes up with these level designs?! The difficulty is completely insane for some of them!

Time to replay Portal!
And could it be? Dare I say it? Might we be seeing Ep 3 or ... *puts bacon on it* Half-Life 3!?!

Portal Patch Adds Morse Code, Achievement - Portal 2 Speculation Begins - Shacknews - PC Games, PlayStation, Xbox 360 and Wii video game news, previews and downloads
Quote:
Today, Valve Software published an update to Portal through Steam. The only patch note:
"Changed radio transmission frequency to comply with federal and state spectrum management regulations"
Along with this cryptic change, is a new achievement, titled "Transmission Received", which Shacker ghost in my shell reported unlocking after he "put the radio on the red button on the first stage." At this point it "started spitting out Morse code."
We're still unsure what is actually going on here, but mysterious things appear to be afoot. At the very least, I'd recommend getting this achievement.

Almost seems like a one month early April Fools LOL. There's some crazy stuff people are doing in the forums to decipher it.
