In other news...

I have Portal 2.

The game was part of a weekly sale through XBOX Live for $9.89 (compared to the $19.95 Amazon has it listed for), and I wanted a break from the grimdark mind fuck that is Dead Space 2, having gotten most of the non-DLC achievements. (The ones that don't involve beating the game on Zealot and Hardcore difficulty - gosh, they sound like a breeze! Only three saves on Hardcore? Bring it on!)

To be honest, the puzzle solving made for an interesting change of pace after a couple slogs through the Sprawl, even after the implications that God only knows what has happened since the last time Chell was woken up. (And considering that Portal and Half Life apparently take place in the same universe, it might be easy to guess what went down. Nice going, Gordon...)

That said, it kind of adds a sour note to the ending. Life in Aperture was (more or less) a certainty. The outside world, less so - especially if the Combine is still in charge. On the other hand, the best I can come up with right now is the G-Man standing outside the shack, with Chell's (now modified) Portal Gun in hand and in need of her help...)

Also bought on sale:
Rock Band Blitz
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Fallout 3
