30. Re: Half-Life 3 ARG? Dec 12, 2011, 15:02 jacobvandy
 
Yes, the Portal 2 early release was a farce, no doubt about it. Game still released at midnight EST Tuesday morning, which is in no way a special event on Steam. They just plain didn't expect the community to be so organized, with the wiki that explained how to get every potato and coordinating which game to put hours into and "finish," and they had decided beforehand that the game would only be released a few hours early. If you were watching closely on the last couple days, the time bonuses were reduced from 1-2 hours to around 5 minutes per game "finished," which was complete bullshit. At the rate we were going, it was estimated that it should have been unlocked Sunday afternoon or so.

They made up for it somewhat by handing out Valve Complete Packs along with the golden potatoes, so anyone who was dedicated enough to notice got the game for free (though many of them had pre-ordered already, like me).

A recent PC Gamer tweet says this is a hoax.

That twitter feed spitting out random crap that they mentioned is fake, not the Wheatley VGA video, obviously...
