The PJ Tatler

Awaiting Portal 2

I’m not the gamer I used to be, but I have been just about salivating ever since I heard that Portal 2 is coming. Now it’s a week away. I’ve pre-ordered it for the PS3. Of course.

The original Portal hit a few years back as basically an afterthought, included with a release of Half-Life 2, and was a near instant hit on its own. You can still find users developing their own levels for the game, which is essentially an action physics puzzler with a dry but sadistic sense of humor.

The new version looks to be just as diabolical as the original, plus a whole lot of improvements in the graphics and the addition of a co-op mode.

I. Can’t. Wait.
