Portal Interview

CVG dive through a portal with Valve's Kim Swift amd Doug Lombardi to discover more about the world of puzzly weirdness.

When Half-Life 2: Episode Two launches early next year, it'll come packaged with two tasty extras - Team Fortress 2 and, what we're concerned with here, Portal. Portal, for those recently emerging from under a rock, is a puzzle style game where players use a 'portal gun' to open entry and exit portals to solve, well, puzzles. It sounds weird and indeed is a real head-screw to watch in action, but with Valve Software at the development helm you can be sure it'll be as entertaining as it is odd.

I thought this game was pretty intriguing when I downloaded the trailer from Xbox Live. I am definitely going to give it a good playthrough. Team Fortress 2 looks fun as well. The fact that both of these games come with HL2 as a bonus just makes it even better.

I would get this game for the PC but my PC is kinda crappy so i'm getting it for my Xbox 360.

I am definately going to pick up HL2. I have never played it before, but the trailers and the fact you get three games for the price of one is hard to pass up. That portal game looks like its going to give me a bald spot trying to beat it. It is a remarkably fasinating and mind boggling game. It will a breathe of fresh air when I get tired of playing and beating my other PS3 games.

What a fantastic game package... Portal and Team Fortress 2 look like they are going to be good (if not great). It is not often that you see such quality titles in a "bundle". We are lucky to have companies like Valve, who obviously care about gamers and making great games. Kudos, Valve.

I have HL2 for PC ... but to be honest ... I have been a HL fan FROM THE START and "I WILL" buy it and RE-PLAY it on my 360.

Since I know it is coming to the 360, I did not bother buying the expansions for my PC version since it will be bundled. (plus .. BIG SCREEN with MAX GRAPHICS is better than my PC experience .. and my shat kicking surround sound in the living room IS A MUST)

Think about it

- HL2
- the expanded episodes
- portal play
- Team Fortress 2 (I love the look of it and it it is anything like the original .. IT ROCKS)
- Counter Strike Source


How do you beat that ????

Not to mention the Multi-Player stuff is FRICKEN WICKED (TF2, CS .. if you never played it .. get ready)
