Portal 2: 5 Down, 8 to Go

According to GLaDOS@Home, computations are now also complete for Cogs, Rush, and AaAaA, so the contributions of five of the 13 games in the potato sack towards an early release of Portal 2 are now done. As Dr. Rumack once (or twice) said: "We're all counting on you."

It's kinda funny seeing people rage so hard about this. The fact is, pirates on 360/PS3 or people who found the game early would be playing early and spreading around spoilers regardless of this ARG. The ARG didn't magically push back the release date of the game.

It's a disappointing end to the ARG, for sure, but man, what a bunch of entitled nerd ragers.

This. Never seen so much whining in my life. Valve tried to do something cool that could give an early Portal 2 release to even the people who don't participate and they still find a way to act like entitled brats over it. I'm sure the thought on most Valve staffer minds today is "With friends like these, who needs enemies." If you don't want to play the ARG, then don't and wait for the normal release date. Just shut up about it and let those who choose to participate enjoy themselves.
