Portal 2 Perpetual Testing Initiative Released

Steam News announces the release Perpetual Testing Initiative, the promised free update for Portal 2 that adds new content and a level editor to Valve's puzzle/platformer sequel. Here's word:

The new free Portal 2 update titled "Perpetual Testing Initiative" is now available on Steam!

The "Perpetual Testing Initiative" allows players to easily create, share, and play Portal 2 puzzles. The Initiative comes with a simplified puzzle maker that allows that creation of mind-bending puzzles without ever leaving the game.

The puzzle maker can directly publish maps to the Steam Workshop where users can browse, vote on, and select to play them. Selected puzzles will automatically be downloaded and installed inside Portal 2.

EA has a very different approach with Origin, which involves charging more for games than any other place on the planet. For instance, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is 26.99 on Steam - 39.99 on Origin. Or Batman: Arkham City, which is 19.99 - 24.99 on Origin. And all their new high profile releases are either 40/$65 or 45/$73.

EA is trying to increase the price of gaming, while Valve is doing the opposite. And Valve offers the better service. Bizarre. Absolutely bizarre. It is any wonder that EA was voted the worse company in America? I think not.

I agree entirely!

For some reason I never got around to playing the Mass Effect series. I picked them both up via a big sale on Steam a few months ago. I finished the first one, the PC version had the main DLC already included. I looked into playing the Mass Effect 2, but it will cost me over $50 to get all the DLCs. Ridiculous! It is a game that is two and a half years old. Why don't they have a "Game of the Year" edition already? At the very least they could have a reasonably priced bundle with all DLCs included.

I use to pirate games, but no longer with reasonable services like Steam. Origin and EA are seriously tempting me to pirate again...
