I wouldn't be surprised if we saw more Portal after this. And I think the reason Episode 2 is taking so long is probably just because Valve realized that in the last 6 years they kind of had to reinvent the mechanic of the series and introduce fresh ideas, as absolutely fantastic as HL2 and its episodes still are to this day. I think the mere fact that Portal happened probably shook things up in that development as well, especially since hiring the core Portal team, and all the new talent from the level designers and HL2 modders and such. I think the next HL entry, whether it's still called an episode or a full fledged sequel is going to really surprise us with the form it takes, and I expect it to be as full-scale a project as HL2 originally was. Really can't fucking wait.

Also, is anyone else here as excited about Brink as I am?
Fatties And Free-Running: Brink Hands-On | Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Honestly seems like the most interesting multiplayer game to come around personally since TF2. Developer has an excellent pedigree too so I'm not too worried they won't pull off its many ambitions.

Hey Lance, so is The National song in the closing credits of Portal 2 then?

Hopefully Brink ends up decent, I like coop games. It sorta looks like it could go either way right now.

It's more like a team-based class-based objective-based persistent multiplayer game.

Also, the National song is hidden in the main game as something of an Easter egg, not over the end credits.

"PlayStation Network Under Maintenance".

Does anybody know what's up? Is it actual maintenance or they got hacked again?

There's certainly something up. Especially since Sony hasn't given any word on the problem for two days now. I expect it won't last much longer, and be on the look-out for a free downloadable or other discount or something from them to make up for the inconvenience. Well, at least that's Microsoft's M.O.

I posted about RAGE (and Brink) and both were somewhat overlooked. I'm so excited!

RAGE is going to be fucking awesome. 15 hour campaign, and a half dozen or howevermany distinct co-op missions. Plus some goofy car combat multiplayer racing modes. Can't wait.

About to swap my 360 for a PS3. Picked up Arkham Asylum and Fallout New Vegas in anticipation and pre-ordered L.A. Noire. Any of you suckers have any other recs?

Can't wait for LA Noire.

Well, if you at all like baseball, get The Show.

And, of course, the Unchartered games are a blast.

A friend of mine left the first Uncharted behind to play. That's exciting.

I'll probably head on over to Gamestop tomorrow and pick up Resident Evil 5, Metal Gear 4 and John Woo's Stranglehold ($8!!!) in a used deal.
