As I was picking up my copy of BioShock 2
for $5 today on Steam, I saw that Portal 2
is now available for pre-load. Yes, you could have purchased it before, but the game will start to download most of the necessary files to start playing.
Can't say I'm not excited about the game and I am really looking forward to trying co-op with folks. You can bet that I will start to pre-load the game when I hit the hay tonight, which has become my couch with a tower of pillows in the last 3 weeks because of my back problem. But I digress. So, if you have ordered Portal 2 on the PC, you can start grabbing the files so you can play the game as soon as it's released.
