Perpetual Testing Initiative Runthrough
We check out the new user-generated content tools found in the PC version of Portal 2.
WOW, AFTER A WEEK OF THIS LEVEL EDITOR BEING OUT THERE IS THOUSANDS OF USER MADE MAPS!!! The game literally just became endless, I hope they slowly improve the map creator to allow even more detail. Valve rocks soooo much and rewards nicely for people who give them money, EA just rapes me and leaves me bloody and guilty feeling but valve makes sweet love to me and takes me on vacation.
when i herd there was going to be a leval disgner, i knew it was going to be only on PC. but this is so simple it could easily be on consoles.
A lot of respect for Valve. The way they are able to achieve a high level of entertainment with such simplicity, is astounding. If only more of the larger developers followed their example!
For many of my younger years I was a PC gamer, but once my desire for gaming outweighed my ability to mantain and update a PC I went to console gaming. I have been pleased and satisfied by my 360 for quite some time now and this one map editor alone has made me wish I was still on a PC.... hats off to Valve! Like your games weren't good enough already... :P
For those wishing this was on the consoles:
It's highly likely that valve will at one point select a large group of player-made test chambers that are very good, and put them together as a DLC for the xbox 360 and PS3.
I mean, they've done this before with Left 4 Dead 2.
I see a lot dumb comment above, this is GS fault, without thumbed-down button, now we "users" treated with a lot of spam/troll all over this site! congratulations GS! you win!
Got this yesterday, tried a few levels that were available already and was thoroughly impressed. The maps may lack the visual appeal which is expressed throughout the campaign (test chambers falling apart etc.) but they are challenging and for the most part require good critical thinking to solve. There are also a slew of new voice recording by Cave Johnson to enjoy which is a treat.
Try the maps by Mevious, I prefer them for their appropriate level of difficulty which is a bit harder than the average puzzles in the campaign but do-able even for those that don't play a lot of portal these days and are rusty at thinking with portals.
Shining example of why PC gaming rocks right here! So Much CONTENT!
Valve u da best :D, can't wait to start making my own levels!
Why haven't they released this for consoles? It looks really easy to make a level with those tools and would be a nice complement for games like Mod Nation racers that have easy to use creation tools.
I don't know if anyone else said this, but you don't have to restart game to get chamber on list, Just subscribe, unsubscribe and subscribe again to the map you want to play. That worked for me every time. Hope this helps ^^.
@demetrius1991 Doing fun things over and over tends to lead to fun. Well spotted!!
@IevildirkI never valve suck ass
@MordeaniisChaos Everyone made it pretty clear that I was treading on some sacred ground by casually calling this a quick look. Lesson learned.
It will never happen again! I promise!
even if they do that, i still want the editor system.
@Ladiesman17 uh huh. Where the definition of troll is someone you disagree with? Am I right?
@Ladiesman17 Thumbs down buttons are one of the most misused features of online communities. In theory, they should be used to hide comments that don't really contribute to discussion. In actuality, they tend to serve more as a petty "I disagree with this" button.
you know this guy right here ^ couldnt get past the first level...hence "this game sucks"....you failure
@demetrius1991 Got stuck in the test chambers, uh?
@demetrius1991 Yea, you do the same thing over and over when you can't figure out how to get out of the first room ^^
@demetrius1991 Give us an example of a good game then so we can compare.
@demetrius1991 ban this nub.
@Gamespot when you add the language filter to this chat layout add an idiot filter while you are at it. We cant vote their comments down to a click to display anymore :(
@demetrius1991Surprised to hear that, what do they do that you don't like?
you are the first person i have ever heard say that. and probably the only.
@TylerW Haha! I'm pretty sure no one actually cares, but it's all cool!
