TVGB: "Steam for Mac launched yesterday, maybe you heard. And it’s done well; out of the 50+ launch titles, one very particular game — Portal — saw quite a few downloads. “Millions” even, Valve says."
Wonder how many of those have never played the game and will be glued to their Macs for days now.
The game is amazing but short. It left me wanting more, and now that I think of Portal 2 and hear it is a full fledged game, I foam at the mouth.
I got it and played for the first time.It only took me 2 hours to beat but I want to play it more and want to see more of Portal 2.
It was rather short, wasn't it. I got it as a part of TOR though, so it felt just the right size to me. Didn't feel the need for more even. Portal 2 looks bloody appetizing though.
I bet really what happened was about 9000 Mac users downloaded the game over and over since they thought it was broken or had to get it again when they died. Good to hear some of them are finally getting out of the first room.
Took me all night before the servers slowed down enough to download it.
Jesus, they must have been hard up. Gaming-wise.
I spent all day trying to download it. Finally it started downloading like well past dinner time.
Well being free its not surprising The very polished, shiny feel of Portal fits very well with a Mac I think :)
I download it yesterday, but damn it was so short, I wanted more puzzles..
Luckily for you Portal 2 is almost here.
all these first timers lol
... I’m so glad I get to play some games on my mac now!
time to upgrade to an Intel based mac.
Valve must have some crazy server infrastructure to support all of those downloads. They peaked at 26 gigabytes per *second*. http://store.steampowered.c...
Well it's free on Steam for a few weeks, so now's the chance to get it if you're ever planning on playing it, who can argue with free games?
Downloaded portal, civ complete pack,quantz, and the indie games pack for roughly $65 last night. It's pretty neat to see so many games available for play on the Mac and on the net book. Valve did a great thing with putting steam on the Mac.
I bought it when it first came out and I re-downloaded it for my MacBook Pro. It looks REALLY good for being on a laptop. I'm very impressed with it. I'm just waiting for Left 4 Dead 2 to come out so I can play it at home instead of going to my school to play it with friends.
