Yeah it was a bit short, but apparently the co-op campaign is another 7 hours of gameplay and adds onto the singleplayer campaign.

Just finished the CO-OP with my friend and it took us 6 hours, We started at 6pm and finished right before midnight.

The CO-OP was just as funny as the single player but it wasn't that challenging I would say the CO-OP is actually easier than the single player just because you have 2 people figuring out the puzzles at least thats the way my buddy and I felt.

Great game though. Defiantly my favorite game this year.

So about 12 hours to beat the game?

for 50 bills, no thanks but then again I didnt care for the first one to much, yes I like "puzzle" games but IDK 1 made me want to shave my head with a cheese grater and chew glass rather than play another level.

To be nitpicky, it seems like you spend a good bit of time walking between levels, which is fine because some of the dialogue is actually pretty humorous. However, it would have been nice if the next level was loading while you were between levels instead of Walk load play... walk load play etc. I ran out of SSD room and had to move steam to WD Greens :(
You can install Steam games on multiple drives, you just have to work a little trickery.

I'm having a difficult time getting games to save on the "cloud" (I started playing on the PS3, but I want to continue my game on the PC)... is there a trick to doing this?

EDIT: well, the PSN is down, so that may have something to do with the problem.

Haven't played it myself, but I was hoping it wasn't too short. I'm glad I waited on it. But knowing valve, they'll put it on sale for the same price it was on preorder, so, like Happy Gilmour would say "whoop pa de doo!". I still want to buy it tho.
It's pretty dead here about it now, are you guys done with it until the DLC comes? That's kinda lame, I'd expect more than a 10% discount.

If you are in no big hurry it will probably be on sale for 50% off or more within a month or so.
