Yeah, I am contemplating buying it. I probably will, but it's irritating that it is box only, you cannot buy it online for that price.

EDIT: Bought it from GameStop for a grand total of $32.50. The code VSHIP will give you free shipping.

Well I just walked into Gamestop and picked it up for $31.49 (29.99+1.50 tax)

I know I said I wasn't getting it but I think 30 bucks is a fair price for a new game like this

Wonder how those that paid fifty for it less than a month ago feel? Also wondering if Valve will comp them?

I'd be annoyed, and we both know they won't.

Yeah I would too. And yeah you're probably right about valve giving anything back. I still have visions of this comic strip floating in my head with them rolling in the money - Rage3D Discussion Area - View Single Post - Portal 2!

Even more so now considering the huge price drop

I just started playing last night so I'm just getting into it but from what little I've played it seems ok. I will say I'm a little disappointed in the graphics though I do realize the games engine is getting a little old, no performance issue though.

Yea, I would like to have seen much better graphics .. but the gameplay is a lot of fun so far.

When does SDK get released?
I want to see what the community does.

Still on the fence though

Well I just finished off Portal 2. A bit confused about the end though.

Anyway while the puzzles got more elaborate as the levels progressed I did think they were a little easy to solve, though I did have YouTube one area: Chapter 6 - The Fall, where you first hear Cave Johnson's voice.

Outside that little confusion, the rest of the seemed easy to me, even the ending wasn't too taxing. With that I'd have to say Portal 1 is the harder game.

I Still don't think it was worth 50 bucks though I will say you do get a fair bit of content. Definitely worth the 30 bucks I paid though.

Good game.

@ tepid, I know nothing of the SDK. Sorry.

My copy arrived in the mail today, and I am going to pick it up in a few minutes. Shame that I have a coding project due at midnight that I have not yet finished, so I won't get to play it until tomorrow.
