Free Portal 2 DLC Next Month

Valve announces plans to release Perpetual Testing Initiative on May 8th as free DLC for the Windows and OS X editions of Portal 2, the first-person puzzle sequel:

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the free Portal 2 DLC titled "Perpetual Testing Initiative" will be available for the PC and Mac on May 8th.

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.

Portal 2 holds a Metacritic score of 95% and has been awarded numerous Game of Year awards. It features expansive single and cooperative multiplayer game modes.

Wow. I played through the original on the 360, just to see if it could be done, and it wasn't exactly a pleasant experience...

*shrug* Not having played either one anywhere else, I have nothing to compare it with... But, I certainly enjoyed playing both Portal 1 and 2 on 360, and thought both were very pleasant experiences...

But, then I'm a weirdo who never got into gaming with the mouse even when I used to heavily play PC games... I was the crazy bastard still trying to play Quake using only the keyboard! (And, usually getting my ass handed to me, of course...) But, even though it's not nearly as accurate, I find gaming on a console controler far more natural and enjoyable... *shrug* I know, it's just me...
