Article says 2.5 to 3 times as long as the first game.

Save people reading the poorly translated article.

So pretty much the same thing they've been saying for months.

despair2837d ago

Its on the PS blog, just look at the "every portal question answered" post. They said about 3 times as long for SP and twice as long for Co-op.

Took me a little under 2 hours to beat the first so I estimate 6-10 hours for both SP and Co-op, thats not too bad I guess.

newn4gguy2837d ago

Two hours to beat Portal the first time?

It takes 20 minutes to navigate the last level alone...and that's knowing the level pixel by pixel.

inveni02837d ago

I recently played Portal again, and I was surprised at how short it was. I beat it in about an hour and a half, but I've dumped over 24 hours into Portal (including mods). I often use it as a jumpstart for my brain before I start programming.

Yeah if you cant beat Portal in 3 hours....then well Portal 2 might last you a couple days....

HappyGaming2836d ago

Awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee e!!!!!!!!


I was late to join the Portal party but I loved the first one so much...

hardcorez2836d ago

Thanks, as I didn't want to click the "Translate" link.

inveni02836d ago

I love how 4 people disagreed with me. I know I beat it in less than 1.5 hours because I did it on my lunch break.

Is Steam InGame Only or will there be a Side app like Netflix or something, and i Love Team Fortress 2 on my PS3 but is there any way to play it with Bots Offline, will it be trash in 2 years if they pull the Servers Down?

Gawdl3y2836d ago

Don't expect TF2's servers to EVER go down.
Team Fortress 2 is still alive and strong on the PC, although the console versions are like a dead shell of the far superior PC version.

Soldierone2836d ago

You start it when the game boots up. Being Valve the servers will probably never go down anytime soon since they dont need server space for any other games anyways.

Bull5hifT2836d ago

Is there a way to play DC universe offline also? I really wanted it but at the time i thought i was going to get Laid Off and that subscription feee.. And now im just waiting for them to release a Newer Pressed Disk with all the Updates put on it

dc12836d ago

Thanks! I'm setting up my steam account today!!!!

BeastlyRig2836d ago

yeah They updated steam on PC yesterday! One of the updates was about ps3 & psn..

xtremexx2837d ago

and every minute's gonna be gold :)

"Portal 2 is about two and a half to three times as long as its predecessor"


Shazz2837d ago

I've never played portal , can anyone tell me does it have a story to it ?

clank5432837d ago

It has a great story. Its about an evil AI that tries to kill you in all these puzzles. Its absolutely hilarious with political doublespeak and really witty lines. It's pretty much the main draw to the game for me.

brish2837d ago

In portal you play a person that is in an experiment ran by a computer. To get to the next level you need to solve puzzles using a portal gun that allows you to shoot two portals on walls. When you pass though one portal you come out of the other one.

One problem is the computer that is running the experiment is trying to kill you! However, if you pass the experiments you get cake!

A quote from the game:

"The Enrichment Center promises to always provide a safe testing environment. In dangerous testing environments, the Enrichment Center promises to always provide useful advice. For instance, the floor here will kill you. Try to avoid it."

dead_eye2837d ago

Theres no real story to portal. But the story is the best part lol.

ShadowArchangel2837d ago

The above posters are right. But it also has a story that ties with black mesa from half life. This is evident from the songs and some posters you find through out the game, specially the last levels. It's not the main story, but at least we know it's part of the Half life universe.

johnthe5th2836d ago

Yeah and at the end of Half Life 2: Episode 2 they were going to investigate something related to Aperture Science (I won't spoil anything) so I'm hoping this game will tie the two series' together a bit more.

I can only imagine that this game will take me 4-5 hours longer than the average gamer to complete
