I think my "outrage at Valve game delay" receptors must have been completely burned out from overuse over the last decade or so, because this news leaves me almost completely numb. While I start thinking about a future where I have to secretly cut myself just so I can feel anything anymore, why don't you read the well-written news brief from Valve about the new ship date for Portal 2?
So that happened. Surprised?
Valve today announced that Portal 2 -- the sequel to the ground-breaking title that won over 30 game of the year awards, despite missing its original ship date -- will now be available the week of April 18th, 2011. This two month slip not only marks the shortest delay in Valve's proud tradition of delays, it represents the approaching convergence of Valve Time and Real Time. Though this convergence spells doom for humanity, it will not affect the new Portal 2 release date.
