I guess the real fans are too busy playing games trying to get Portal released.
I keep getting too frustrated at Killing Floor and need to take breaks.

Now it's set for 9:41 PST. Sorry Woot, I somehow doubt your products will be cooler than this so I'll check them after I have binged on some cake.

Why do I keep updating the status if nobody is reading this? If I had a split personality I wonder if we would agree on things too much. Could it possibly be a constructive collaboration if it's from the same brain? Ok, you're talking like a stoner.

This is going to be a long hour.

I was just wondering the same thing as I watch the final countdown.

@viper2544: You were wondering about my split personalities or if you were the only Portal enthusiast on Woot?

For religous reasons, I have been away from my computer since about 8 hours before the countdown completed. Now I am slowly decrypting. Been about an hour and only at 32%. WHY DO YOU TORMENT ME, VALVE???

Also, I was upset to see I missed the Portal themed shirt on shirt.Woot. Thank goodness for $5 off coupons!

@abramokids: After mine finally finished decrypting, the installation failed so I had to re-download which took a couple hours! I decided I should sleep and waited until after work the next day.

I just finished the single player and I have to say there was a lot of really exciting and fun gameplay. While gameplay was still puzzle solving, it was still very story driven with the history of Aperture. The humor was great in the start and seemed to fall later in the game to focus more on the story. The ending song was not my favorite. What's up with the lack of cake? The companion cube was barely brought up too. Overall the game was still great.

Now I have to force someone I know to buy the game so I can play Co-op. There is an option to play with a random person, I assume isn't going to be as much fun as with someone you know. I'll have to try it out.

@skippykj: I spent all night playing. literally. The sun is out now. I played 2 1/2 hours myself and the 3 3/4 hours of co-op with a friend. The game is amazing. Also, Valve said early on that they would not rehash old memes. There would be no cake. Although SPOILER I loved the way Glados kept taunting me with the companion cube. I'm in middle of chapter 4 right now

GlaDOS:
"I just got the test results back from that last test.
'You are a horrible person.'
That's what it says, 'You are a horrible person.'
We weren't even testing for that."
