    Portal Flash version maps are great! harder than Portal's own maps, but still fantastic.

    at first, the title made me think it's the sequel........ had my hopes up

    games like portal will never be brought en mass till they can support the mods on the console. No sain person will pay whatever they charge for the extra content that is available for free.

    And microsoft will never allow mods on its console. So thats that out the window, Enough if htey keep that stance they may kill of the fps market on there console all together . Mods add life to otherwise unplayed games

    I know I'm about a year behind the curve, but I bought and started playing Bioshock this weekend. Awesome game, but... the weapon targeting seems a little dumbed down to me. I'm wondering if it was done that way because its also available on a console. I figured I'd have to be a little more accurate with my shots (at least with the handgun), but seems like its a little to easy. Then again, I did start the game on easy difficulty, but I figured that would just determine opponent strength and numbers, not aiming.

    aye... this name sounds like a sequel. Making it a poor choice for a name.

    Still, portal itself is a really short game. Is it worth to buy it as stand alone?

    There were some tough tricks to pull off in Portal which i can't imagine anyone do with a controller... Which means that once again a game will be dumbed down for consoles !

    portal was never standalone material and you could buy it + hl2 hl2 ep 1 ep 2 counter strike source on pc for £30 off steam site (all on pack). So how much do microsoft intend to flog this at i wonder? Anything above £ 10 and its already failed

    I hope a mod maker releases the Portal Still alive for the PC.

    Huh? Portal was released on the Xbox 360 as part of the Orange Box at the same time it was released for the PC. I should know - I completed it on the Xbox 360. No troubles with the controller here, and from what I've heard it's puzzle-for-puzzle identical to the PC version, albeit in a different resolution.
