In case anyone has forgotten Portal 2 is now available. Its been getting good reviews even though a lot of its players have been complaining that the PC version is a console port, it’s too short (less than 3 hours) and that it has day one DLC, all of which isn’t true.
The GLaDOS mini game was basically pointless because it got the game released early but only by a few hours so some people might see it has a rip off especially if they bought those indie games just to help get Portal 2 released early. Of course most of those indie games where good by themselves but you shouldn’t feel that you have to buy them for another game, this means those games weren’t being enjoyed on their own merits.
I was going to buy Portal 2 myself but I replayed Portal 1 the other day, to try to complete it before Portal 2 came out, but I got stuck half way through. I didn’t want to use a guide so I thought “forget this”, Portal 1 hasn’t aged well. I don’t want to waste all my money on games these days that’s why I made a decision even if Portal 2 was fantastic I’m going to wait for The Witcher 2, it will be worth the money because for one thing the play length will be the same amount as the money I pay for it. Portal 2 is good but paying that amount of money for a game that can be basically completed in 6 hours isn’t worth it, sure it might be a great 6 hours but you can watch The Godfather and The Godfather Part II in the same amount of time and it would cost less money in the cinema or on DVD and in my opinion be more entertaining, capiche? The Witcher 2 will likely last more than 70 hours so you are getting your moneys worth and The Witcher 1 was excellent.
Be a companion cube and get Portal 2 if you want but I’m not going to on principal and that feels good.
