Portal 2 Preorders, Specs

This Portal 2 preorders page has links to where Portal 2 can be preordered, saying: "Several outlets around the world are offering special pre-order incentives including special pricing and exclusive in-game content." This covers the U.S., U.K., and several European countries, also noting that all territories can also pre-purchase through Steam, where they are offering a 10% discount on the first-person puzzle/platformer. The U.S. channels are Amazon, where they offer a $5.00 promotional credit and GameStop where they are offering GameStop exclusive customized skins for the co-op bots Atlas and P-body.

I liked Portal, don't get me wrong, when it was part of the Orange box and came with TF2 and Episode 2.... I loved the humor and everything.

I just don't see Portal 2 as being worthy of a 50 dollar price tag alone. It's a puzzle game, Doesn't matter how long it is.

Shut your cake hole!!!! Cake .....get it cak...ahhhh aahhheemmmm
For those making their upteenth time through also try the community maps here.

my advice would be to not go for the hard ones first.
