So who’s played Portal?
If you haven’t, it’s basically the best game ever made, except it’s like 2 hours long… more if you’re stupid.
If you have, what is, in your opinion, the coolest trick in the game?
I like portaling behind a turret and picking it up, then carrying around and listening to it complain.
Speaking of which, how hilarious is that game?
“Please note, we have added a consequence for failure. Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an unsatisfactory mark on your official testing record, followed by death. Good luck.”
“There was even going to be a party for you. A big party that all your friends were invited to. I invited your best friend the companion cube. Of course, he couldn’t come because you MURDERED HIM. All your other friends couldn’t come either because you don’t have any other friends because of how unlikable you are. Unlikable, it says so here in your personnel file: Unlikable. Liked by no one. A bitter, unlikable loner whose passing shall not be mourned. SHALL. NOT. BE. MOURNED. That’s exactly what it says. Very formal. Very official. It also says you’re adopted, so that’s funny too.”
“The Enrichment Center is required to remind you that you will be baked, and then there will be cake.”
Ah, yes, Portal. The reason for the Orange Box’s continued existance, and quite possibly the best idea ever to be spawned by people working for Valve. Unfortunately short, this game deserves, nay, DEMANDS a sequel–or at least an expansion. Completely worth the 20$.
Personal fave to do? Prolly, just messing around with the turrets in the following manner: Portal behind, then put a portal infront of it, then when it locks on, move. It shoops itself, and then there’s one less gun. Alternatively, putting a ceiling-floor portal to keep the thingy falling for ever and ever and ever…
But the best and I mean BEST, part? GlaDOS sings the end theme. As soon as I find the file, that’s going on my ipod.
Of course, you could always just get the HL2 maps and plug them in to Portal to use the ASHHPD–aka the “Portal Gun”–against the Combine.
I played through Narbacular Drop for Dazzy, and it’s the same thing, but very buggy, not nearly as awesome, and obviously made by amateurs. Don’t settle for just having played that, and don’t use it to judge how fun portal is.
Narb-Drop was made by amatuers, though.
They gained waay more experience in making it, and had more time for Portal.
My current hardware can’t take the Orange-Box, but my new one (Christmax, yay!) can! I’ve been playing Narb-Drop quite a bit, it’s incredibly original and fresh in every new level, though really quite buggy.
I hope that NMS (The dev-team) got an outstanding grade for it.
