Damn I want to be playing Portal 2 RIGHT NOW

When we beat Portal we found out the cake wasn’t a lie.
But it looks like the potatoes were.
It’s nearly midnight and GlaDOS’ boot sequence still has a little over an hour to go. http://www.aperturescience.com/glados@home/
sigh
I’ve gotta say, it seems kind of shitty that Valve teased users into “helping release early” by encouraging people to buy the Potato Sack bundle, and then not even release early.
I’ll still enjoy playing the game, but I can understand people being pissed if they bought the Potato Sack bundle hoping to play early.
[edit]
I just realized the “announced” release time was 10:00 AM for PC’s. But people buying on PS3 are still getting it at midnight, so the early release just means both get to play at the same time.

Yeah, I already preordered/preloaded and everything.
I’m pretty disappointed as well.
But hey, only an hour away, right? I can wait.
I… can… wait…

Speaking of, I reeeaaallllyyyy hope the whole ARG wasn’t just to get Portal 2 early.
Where’s my HL3, Gabe?

I really doubt the rumors that HL3 will release. I really think this might have just been a poorly executed marketing idea.

Well, no doubt a lot of people DID buy the potato sack just for this. It’s a shame Valve couldn’t pay up at the end.

What’s really sad is that a lot of people probably bought the sack for the Ressurection Pin.

Good news: It looks like everyone who collected all 36 potatoes are able to play now.
Bad news: It looks like only about 100 people actually collected all 36.

I’ll be honest, Valve is getting on my nerves with more than a few subjects.

I saw the timer hit zero.
No easter eggs on the glados@home thing, yet.

This was a triumph.
I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.
Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there’s no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I’m not even angry.
I’m being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time.
So I’m GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you’ll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
THAT WAS A JOKE.
HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
Anyway, this cake is great.
It’s so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there’s Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I’m not you.
I’ve experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I’m doing Science and I’m still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I’m still alive.
While you’re dying I’ll be still alive.
And when you’re dead I will be still alive.
STILL ALIVE (x2)

I shat bricks when I first heard that song.

Anyway, though with some flaws wiff dem tatters, people are genuinely liking Portal 2.
