Goodness me, every one of those trailers and news about this game just oozes originality, geniuity and care. As opposed to a generic "followup-to-an-established-IP-so-let's-cash-in" attitude.Of course i can't know yet if the game will meet my expectations, but i sure as hell know, that this is how you make the punters want to find out. Preordered now....so for once and against better wisdom, i'll let the marketing guys get the better of me. I shall publicly eat my words if the game fails to deliver. Then again i feel safe...afterall, this is Valve
What we learned today: Miniature black holes apparently need a cooling fan for operation. Major win: "Reproducible human error problem" brings in an EMT cart to recover the hardware.
"Note: If the Device fails to produce portals, the Miniature Black Hole may need to be restarted by carefully tossing one  or both  of the Miniature Surplus German Stick Grenades into it" LOL Cant wait!
@selbie: Chell was wearing "the boots" in the first Portal too. Just as the turrets were in the first Portal too.
