Portal: Still Alive

3 days ago, at E3 2008, Valve announced an expansion pack for the Xbox 360 version of "The Orange Box", called "Portal: Still Alive". An expansion to the hit game "Portal", this is to be an expansion pack with new levels, and a first for an Xbox 360 game, new ACHIEVEMENTS. There has been considerable controversy among fans about this game, as there have been no plans to port this expansion pack to PC or PS3 announced. What are your opinions about this DLC pack so far?

The expansion pack is slanted for a late-2008 release.

Re: Portal: Still Alive

I just played and beat Portal recently and it was an amazing game. Now with the announcement of Portal: Still Alive, this made me happy to hear a new Portal game.

The only downer about this though, is that they said it was exclusively for the X360. I'm really hoping that they (and should) make it for the PC. I know microsoft is focusing towards their console with video games, but they should make and consider the Valve games for the PC. Like they made HL2 for PC before they made it for Xbox, and same with Portal. They should make Portal: Still Alive, for the PC

Re: Portal: Still Alive

There's no chance I'm getting it if it doesn't come out for PC. I can only imagine how irritating the game would be with a controller after playing it originally with a keyboard and mouse.

Agreeing with daeth. Portal was awesome, but I'd hate to play it on XBox after experiencing it's awesomeness on computer.

Re: Portal: Still Alive

This is the best news to come from E3 for me. I absolutely love the first installment of Portal, and I've been looking forward to any info at all on the follow up. Not quite a nice, full length game, but certainly enough to keep me going for now.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that it retains the same fun gameplay and that the quirky humor remains intact.

Re: Portal: Still Alive

I wonder how they will incorporate Portal: Still Alive, into the Half-Life Saga Story Line.....?

Re: Portal: Still Alive

^ Probably as loosely as they did the first part, with just the odd reference here and there.

Re: Portal: Still Alive

Not much of a spoiler. Besides, the game is a year old. Who hasn't played it?

Re: Portal: Still Alive

I briefly started playing the Advanced Chambers in Portal. I beat the first3, but they're pretty damn tough I must say...

Re: Portal: Still Alive

I need to get around to doing those advanced levels. I think this announcement is just the encouragement I need to get back in to it. Or maybe a speed run...

Re: Portal: Still Alive

Portal: Still Alive not cannon, just more maps.
Quote:
"It's just a series of new challenges," said Valve's Doug Lombardi. He said that Valve see the game "as another way for people to experience Portal, without having to buy the full Orange Box."

The exclusive new maps added to the XBLA release of Portal won't have any new GladOS voiceover because Valve didn't want to mess around with the storyline so neatly wrapped up at the end of the game. Lombardi told us it wanted to avoid the potential problem of having different story strands on different platforms.
Well that kills me interest.

Re: Portal: Still Alive

Well, just because GLaDOS won't be in the game doesn't necessarily mean that it will just be more puzzles. It could still have it's own story. Valve just didn't want to present any inaccuracies with GLaDOS, you know, considering she shouldn't exist.

And OH MY GOD TF2 ACHIEVEMENTS CONFIRMED FOR 360

Re: Portal: Still Alive

That's somewhat of a disappointment. No extra GladOS content? That is a shame.

Looks like I'll have to wait for that full sequel, after all.

Re: Portal: Still Alive

First it's not on PC, now it's just new rooms? I just lost all interest in this.

Now, let's not forget about Oblivion.

Anyway, I liked Portal so I may as well get this, though I'd rather have a full blown sequel.
Too bad it's not for PC.

And Gears.

Eh. Don't care if GladOS isn't in it. The gameplay is what I care about - as long as it's still cool as **** (and a little more challenging), I'm getting it. Actually, I'm getting it no matter what.
