I like how - even when Wheatly knows what you're going to do - you can still beat him by taking advantage of his stupidity.

I also like how they managed to make it incredibly epic (Portal-ing to the MOON) and hilarious (Glados telling you to just go away).

Also just finished Portal 2 (single player) and had a blast doing it. GREAT game. Thinking about going through again to see all the commentary stuff.

Hmm... EGF co-op?

I do, though I almost never use it. If it matters, I'm running the PC version. Looks like it has to run through steam or not at all.

Me too, so that shouldn't be a problem.
Add me on steam (I'm liquidus118, as always) and if you're free tomorrow I'll play with you.

Thought so, just accepted the invite.

Since this was sort of off-topic:
Shogun 2. Managed to spend 12 hours on multiplayer campaign yesterday. Me and the person I was playing it with had no idea how.

I don't own Portal 2... yet... but I can't wait until I finally get it.
I'm trying my best not to look at any of the story on youtube but I inevitably caved when it came to the end credits song. Since the announcement I've been thinking about just what the new ending theme would be like and I've been highly anticipating it.

When I started to listen to Want You Gone and noticed that the end credits style was similar to the first game's style I immediately fell in love with it. Even though it is shorter than Still Alive just hearing GLaDos sing made it still incredibly enjoyable. I can't stop listening to it. I'm not sure if I like it more than or just as much as Still Alive.

I love Jonathan Coulton~

I just finished the story mode in MK9 the other night, and the story was pretty decent but I feel like it could have been a lot better. I'm just having fun with the Arcade mode and the Challenge Tower. I'm staying way from the online modes right now since the online play creates so much lag and most of the fighters are just spammers.

Does the multiplayer of Portal 2 have any story component?

Not really, It's just glados making fun of humans while you progress through levels, at least that what it is so far. There is a central hub where you can go pick what tests to do again.

Sadly on xbox live the only people I appear to get matched up with are the 12 year olds who like to spam the interaction emotes and just keep yelling that they don't know what to do. I will hold off continuing co-op until I can get a friend to buy the game.

We've played for a few hours and so far nothing significant has happened regarding story, it's like TaintedHero said. That will probably change at some point though.
SPOILER: Show
Wheatly was using the co op robots, too, so I assume you end up doing something with regard to him. Not to mention you see the robots in the end so maybe you help Glados or something.

Replaying New Vegas and being as evil as I can possibly be. Also going all out with melee on this character. It's fun to beat the crap out of someone with a lead pipe.

I bought Super Street Fighter IV a while ago and finally got to take a stab at it. Good god, I'd forgotten how much I've always sucked at this game. T^T

indeed, the only real story thus far is how many times we've managed to kill each other... mostly by accident. mostly.

Deathsmiles - got to the final stage. Almost 1CC'd it.
Mushihimesama Futari 1.5/Black Label (Original Mode) - Still stumped on the third stage. Not easy, but fun.
Muchi Muchi Pork - Not really playing this seriously yet, but it's fun.

Gah, I sure do spend a lot on these games for how not-good I am at them. Not to mention I'm considering preordering this along with importing a Japanese 360. :shinji_boohoo:

But I have fun, and that's what matters right?!

It's not a mystery. Go here, pay cash, receive entertainment.

Played a lot of STALKER: Call of Pripyat with the Call of Pripyat Complete mod.
It does a re haul of the graphics making it appear much smoother as well as adding better sound effects and guitar songs. The guitar songs seem like a small thing but when you only hear the same thing over and over again it gets annoying fast. So basically it makes the game prettier and adds to the immersion without changing the story. Stalker is basically like what Fallout: New Vegas tried to do with hardcore mode, but Stalker got it right (and first).

Also played Minecraft on a multiplayer server with some friends. Notch has a lot of work to do because survival multiplayer is still buggy as hell. Speaking of that the Nether still doesn't work. -__-

After STALKER and Minecraft I messed around in Just Cause 2 some more. The perfect game to hop on with on intention of doing anything productive and having a blast at the same time.
I'm thinking about getting Amnesia: Alone in the Dark
Could be interesting but I wouldn't get around to playing it until sometime next month.
