I got the time.
Good on Valve!
This is the same Steam/Valve everybody with a brain is always complaining about?
I downloaded it. I don't know why. I despised the "First Slice", whenever it first came out. I guess I just want to try it again. At least there isn't a disk and box to take up room in my trashcan.
Not everyone dislikes Steam. Sure, it has its flaws, but its practically the best thing PC gamers have got.
Portal is really quite a funny and clever game. Get to the point at which you can control both portals, and it gets FAR better.
How's this any different from what Valve did about a year and a half ago? Apart from the fact that this time the game's only free for 5 days instead of 12.
I'd say "Portal is free for a couple of days ...again" would have been a much more apt, if less catchy, headline.
When all is said and done it's still a great game, though...
Cool, I played Portal 2 but not 1, so this is another fricken time vampire I have to deal with
But at least it's a fun time vampire
It really isn't very long so it shouldn't take up too much of your time.
Wow. The only cake that's better than cheesecake (IMHO) and it's in the game I downloaded free today!
Pinch me. I'm dreaming!
In all seriousness, I'm really impressed with Portal. Really addictive and simple concept, but I have to say, I'm stuck already. Off to play DNF....
I was dead chuffed to get this for free, it is really cool.
Never played it, downloaded it, played for 30 seconds, deleted it.
Kill it, kill it with fire!
So you didn't even get to the first puzzle?
Kill the boy!!!
hmm they say it's free until the 20th - does that mean that if you install it, you can only play until the 20th? or that only during 15-20th it's possible to add it to your library?
Ok - spent some time on this - I don't get it.
I'm wondering th same thing
I've just downloaded it and it seems a goodish game ( although every time I get something that even resembles a gun in a game I want to blast the hell out of everything that moves ).
BUT I was wondering the same thing as Kris, do we only have until the 20th to finish it or do we have as long as we want? anyone?
okay just checked the steam forum
People ( not moderators though as far as I can see ) are saying you only need to add it to your steam library before the 20th. it's yours to own for ever after that.
which makes steam way cooler imo.
Just completed it - after 2 sessions. As everyone else has said, great game. Nice game to pick up and put down.
Thanks Steam for the freebie, and thanks Bit-Tech for telling me!
