Well, at least we've now established preloading wasn't the endgame.

As far as I know you get the Orange Box soundtrack free to use in Audiosurf, unless you need Portal and don't have it?

Pre-loading Portal 2.
HUGE SUCCESS.

Updates to Ptoato sack games, pre-order bonuses! I'm in a potato high right now. I think I'll buy the other potato sack games. Fucking Valve. Masters of making me buy stuff!

Unless it's already been shipped out, or is being prepared for shipping, you can still cancel the pre-order. Amazon doesn't charge you until it's shipped.

Also, the Potato sack is the ARG of the forever.

The indie guys are getting the wrong kind of exposure.


People are buying the games, getting the Potatoes and never playing them again. They are exploiting them with savefiles that get you all the achievements and completition rates, getting frustrated, etc and taking the fun out of them, just read through the thread.


Its a cool thing for Valve to do, other devs are getting money, but sometimes they should wonder if the people buying them are really getting the best out of them. If i was a dev id like my games to be played, not only to unlock stuff in some other, supposedly better game and never touch that thing again.

The whole thing is really weird when you think about it.

Just downloading. Not playable, to our knowledge. Man, wouldn't that be insane.

If it ends up being unlocked, I will have to locate a hat and eat it.

Just knowing that Portal 2 will be on my hard drive has upped my hype.

Not everyone is involved with the ARG, however. I know diehard Killing Floor fans who don't give two cans about the potato, but they want the achievement.

I don't knw if there are people that play 123KICK IT and AAAaaaAAA regularly, but I'm sure people bought to pack, to play the games. The ARG isn't something that everyone knows about. :)

What the fuck, there was an error with me buying two games and it doesnt leave me buy them for me anymore (the button is grey) only to a friend. Has it happen to someone else, never had a problem with it.

EDIT: They appeared in my games menu! It was strage to have them in the menu and in the shooping cart at the same time.

Some of them.

Dude, im seeing posts in this thread about people saying they wont EVER play Bit.Trip.Beat and/or Super Meat Boy again because they were too frustrated trying to get the potato, or used a savefile that already completed the game for them.

Do you realize the kind of loss we are talking about here ? those 2 are some of the best indie games ever made. It's just wrong.

Because it's preloading and they usually only let you preload right before release.
