Portal is free on Steam right now. Can't get it to download but apparently others have had some success. This begs the question: is the Portal 2 DLC finally coming?

EDIT: Meant to put this in the Portal forum.

Goddamnit! It's free now? But I paid g-....never mind. Carry on.

I actually got it for free on PC a while back when they did a promotion, Already had the Orange box on Xbox so it was cool to play it on PC.

It's good that the last 3 people who haven't played Portal will finally get a chance to.

It's been free for like 6 months lol.

i've had Portal for like, 2-3 years and i still haven't finished it. i even own it on Steam after it was free for the Mac launch of Steam, in addition to owning it on PS3.

You haven't finished it yet? It's shorter than El Shaddai!

Giving away a game for free that everyone in the galaxy already owns seems like a smart move.

It's a very good game.

Nope. It was free for a short time after the launch of Steam for Mac, but that was temporary. It's been $10 for the last few months and I think $5 if you got it with Portal 2.
 
edit: ...lol

There are people that haven't played Portal before?

Portal 2 being free, on the other hand would be awesome.

So I'm looking at Steam right now, and Portal is free...

I Googled this, and nothing is coming up. I think the OP just broke this story. Well done!

That's good cause I got a spare copy to gift...

Back in the day, I thought the Orange Box was a fucking steal.

Now whenever I look at it, I can't decide if just Episode 2 is worth the deal. :(

#15 Posted by Michaelblack18 (223 posts) -

#16 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

Yep..

Edit: Also, Portal is still 20$ in Canada. At least for me.

I've never played Portal.

Even this probably isn't going to get me to do so.

You should play Portal.

I saw your pic and read the first part and got excited that I could finally give my extra Portal away (a fan of In Bruges is worthy), but then read the rest and got disappointed that I'll never get rid of this fucking extra copy

You should play Portal.

I have no real desire to do so. It doesn't interest me.

I actually haven't played Portal, but would like to get it. I take it the Mac version is free as well? The site still shows the game at $19.99, so I wasn't sure.

I think it might have been a mistake. My Steam was acting all weird, and now the game's listed as costing $20, but I think I have the game in my library now. I'm confused.

Correct, it costs money again.

@ZeForgotten: How very strange. Thanks for the clarification though!
