Well that's pretty weak.  I hope you all didn't cancel your PS3 orders for the game to release at 4:00 AM on a work night.

naw, I canceled it because I don't need a PS3 copy laying around and it's still questionable as to whether or not you'll be able to trade them (no sense paying 10 bucks more).  I'm kinda wishing I had known about the Amazon sale on the PC version before I bought the Steam version.

Potatoes are dropping off at the rate of 100 every ~9 seconds.  With 400,000 at the moment, that's 10 hours left, 3+ hours fewer than the current counter.

Revisiting the math, the counter is at 300,000 now, the potatoes are still dropping off at the same rate, which means 7.5 hours until they're all gone around 1:30 a.m. EST.

Only 4:30 left now.  It almost looks like they're just going for a midnight release regardless of any other input.  Which is just super.

It kind of ruins the point of having the ARG and promotion and whatever else when the whole thing was gamed from the start.  Yeah, I've worked on fake progress bars as well, and they're only good at engaging/exciting up until the point people realize their input really means nothing and then it backfires.

Some posting over at GWJ suggests that people who earned a golden potato just got their unlock and are playing now.

Damn, I blink and the number jumps from 97 to 707.  There's also a rumor that golden potato people got a free Valve Complete pack.  Though really, with all the crazy sales on Valve games, who doesn't own all of them already by now? Nice gesture if true though.

Nah, it'll just start the countdown to the announcement of the teaser for a soon-to-be-revealed project.  Then they'll release the Rutabega Bushel pack made up entirely of Pretty Pretty Princess games, start an ARG for it, and half the internet will go nuts playing Pretty Pretty Princess, while the rest will whine and moan about the whole thing.

A friend of mine's GF works at Valve. She got some of us free Portal 2 codes that would have let us play early. I got mine yesterday and gave up on the download around 9:30. How big is this freaking game? heheh. Still, can't wait to play it later today.

played up to partway through chapter 7 last night before I went to bed.  Pretty fun, but GLaDOS is so overshadowed by the other personalities in the game it isn't funny.

looks like 4-6 hours for the single player, depending on how stuck you get on the puzzles.  the last one I hit last night I couldn't figure out, but overall they haven't been too difficult if you step back and look over the setup.

Co-op is a completely separate storyline, correct?

yeah, I heard the co-op was microstransaction heavy.

according to Steam when I exited it said I had played for 2 hours.  I'm not sure how accurate that is, but I started playing around 1am and ended around 5am, but had to step away a few times in between.

If they want to soak all the people that want to play Barbie-bot, let 'em.  I'm free to ignore it.

What chaps my hide is when 20% of the career is locked out like they did in Tiger Woods this year, mapping 5 of the 25 yearly events to courses that I'd have to pay more for if I want to play.

Finished the game. Wow, what a crazy ending. You're all in for a treat.

I had insomnia, so staying up to play Portal 2 was a good an excuse as any.

Officially, steam says I played the game 20 minutes, so I don't think that's accurate. slywink

Already replaying and listening to developer commentary.

Sadly, I'm not seeing any Challenge Rooms in the menu, in Portal 1 those were much harder versions of all the test chambers.

did anyone check out the extras section on the main menu?  there is a Super 8 interactive trailer all the way at the bottom of the list.

one thing I need to do is check out Portal 1's new ending.  i totally forgot about it until I checked the wiki to see if I was misremembering the ending.

Portal 1's new ending doesn't have much bearing on P2 beyond setting it up that
Spoiler for Hiden:
Chel didn't quite escape at the end, and instead is put where she's is at the start of P2

Also, spoilers for those who finish Portal 2, with speculation on HL2 Episode 3, or HL3:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Towards the end, Chel is referred to as being mute now. Also, in some very early indications for Episode 3, Valve had talked about both Alyx and Dog having learned sign language together to communicate silently. It's also mentioned that they might meet a familiar character from the portal series.

Since Chel is officially mute, with Alyx and Dog knowing sign language, there's just too much of an opportunity to have Chel show up, especially now that she has officially escaped the test chamber.

btw, they have a bunch of Portal 2 stuff in the Valve Store (potentially small spoilers).  I kinda want the pint glass.
