Portal is free until May 24th

Post by AzgalathQ » Fri May 14, 2010 12:30 pm

The quote says it all.
Portal used to cost money. Until May 24th, it's free. End of story.

Well, technically speaking, there are some strings attached. Fortunately, they're entirely decorative. We just like the way they look, swaying in the gentle breeze created by a million people simultanously fainting from shock at the news that Portal is free. Now you have no reason not to try Portal.

"I have a reason," some of you are probably typing into an angry email. "You see, sir, I own a Mac."

Well guess what: For the first time ever, Portal is also available for the Mac.

"Capital news! But the excellent puzzle adventure Portal won over 40 Game of the Year awards; Surely it must cost at least five or six hundred dollars."

You'd think that, especially since it actually won over 70 Game of the Year Awards. But, like we keep saying, Portal is free. Free on the Mac. Free on the PC. But only until May 24th. So you only have a few days to decide if your free copy of Portal is worth the price we're currently charging - which is you ever-so-slightly moving your index finger just barely enough to click the big red "download" button right there to the left.

Now the free portal game came with a slightly different ending, as mentioned by AzgalathQ. If you have played portal and know of the ending already, click the link below, and keep an OPEN mind. Beware to all those who haven't played though, this is a spoiler. Then again, its been a few years and if you still are portal-ignorant, then get your act into gear.

When I say keep an open mind, I recently had a debate with Ryoko over a certain sentence mentioned. Watch the vid, listen CAREFULLY and DO NOT open the description. I'm just trying to confirm that I do not have my head in the gutter. Then open spoiler #2 for what my brain heard.

Nobody else wants to try their hand at Portal Junk Stacking, eh?

Disappointing.
