Why is there a GILLETTE FUSION logo on the floor?
I hate pre-loading. It inflames my already grotesquely engorged impatience. I hate knowing that it’s just *there*. Mocking me with its encrypted bits. Dirty boy.

“Why is there a GILLETTE FUSION logo on the floor?”
I think that’s the cross hair, from the looks of it, the coloured bits represent which portals you’re using, maybe duration left or something?
Oh and yes, do want!

The game to break all brains.

I actually thought while watching the Portal trailer “I’ll never be able to do some of these tasks”.
I live in fear of finding out that I actually can’t work them out.

“Bobsy says: I bet it’s short.”
Sure, 4 hours the first time through the main game, they say. Then you can move on to the advanced chambers which were felt were too difficult as well as replay the original levels to complete specific challenges such as: Getting to the exit only using 2 portals. Getting to the exit within a time limit. Perhaps even getting to the exit by only using portals while not taking any steps.
I bet the mod community for Portal will start rolling out new maps within days of Portal’s release too. That’ll be fun.

“I bet it’s short.”
I bet it’s intense, which is more than can be said for a lot of games. Plus given that it’s shipping with 4 other products (one of which is MP game of the year imho) for a measly sum seems like an absolute bargain.
