    If anyone remotely interested in PC games hasn't managed to get hold of this yet, they need their head examined... I'm pretty sure that this isn't the first time Valve have put this up for free.

    That said, if you haven't already got Portal then go and do it now! ...Then go get your head examined afterwards... :p

    "Using interactive tools like the Portal series to draw them in makes physics, math, logic, spatial reasoning, probability, and problem-solving interesting, cool, and fun which gets us one step closer to our goal-"

    Cake!

    sweet,
    my mum is finished with angry birds and she wanted me to get another puzzle type game for her. I think I will pop round my parents house tonight and install it.

    Oooh. I missed this game. If it's all fro free, I think I'll partake of that.

    .... and then I'm off to get my head examined... :)

    Wonder if that's a cheesecake?

    Awesomeness :)

    Of course, any self repecting gamer probably has the orangebox anyway, or bought Portal during the summer Steam sale, when it was about £2 anyway. So they probably won't give away all that many copies, but get good advertising out of it, and might well sell more copies of Portal 2 afterwards.

    Unfortunately no, that's no cheesecake. It's a Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte - or Black Forest Gateaux, if you're not being a nerd ;)... Apparently modelled on a cake being displayed in a cake shop near to the developer office. Yes, it is sad that I know that much detail about it. ;)

    Does anyone still pay for Portal? I got my copy free from a friend who had it as a steam gift, most of my mates did it this way too!
