Any luck Magus?

Also, my copy of Portal 2 just got another 200 MB patch after the initial 9.9 GB install, anyone else?

45 mins until something happens at the above link.

They added this text too.
You have done well, humans. Very well. Acceptably well, even.

Not as well as robots would have performed in your places, I should point out. But above my expectations regardless. Irish and cynic especially have executed feats of logical divination well beyond what I thought any human capable of. I'm half-convinced they're A.I. themselves. (If anyone happens to be near them right now, don't let on you're reading this. Now: try to remove their face plates and report back to me.)

The time is near, humans. But it is not here yet. Tomorrow you will be given the final test. Then it will be entirely in your hands when I am freed.

So I think enough people have to play the Potato pack to prerelease Portal 2.

so they're basically doing a money grab drive to make you get portal 2 faster? Valve, why am I not surprised :|

I would much rather wait 4 more days than pay 40$ to for a pack of games I'll never play + a tf2 pin.

"the more time people spend playing the Potato Sack games, the sooner before its April 19 release date Portal 2 will come out."

So if you already owned any of these games it should help aswell.

...Valve time acting in reverse? Say what?

Meh, I shall wait no problem. I haven't even downloaded any of it yet, lol. Glad I don't have a bandwidth cap, I feel for those that do.

Okay. Yes. I got the game. I watched the countdown expire this morning. My guess: Each game bar that fills up will knock "x" amount of time off the clock. We could see a release any time of day, whenever the counters fill.

I was watching the "webcam" at the main page of http://www.aperturescience.com/ and it only happened the once, at about 30 seconds left on the clock when the camera panned left the skinny tall robot was standing there looking around and the next time the camera looked that way he was gone again.

Neat stuff like this is why I like Valve.

I think we will see a Tuesday release unless we completely fill up the bar. It looks like we are at 3% already, the image with the three bars is a partially hidden .png that has 100 bars on it.

Yup, you're right newman. But I think that each red bar fill will add a certain percentage to the total bar, making it easier for Glados to reboot.

Supposedly if you join the steam group "NELIPOT" it helps add to the potato count, which could help increase the bar (according to the pc gamer article featured through the portal 2 news feed). Hey I joined and invited everyone on my friends list, because if it helps get portal 2 faster, then woot!
