I'll be getting it via Gamefly as my parent's won't buy games for me anymore. (although they did buy me Gears of War 2 so that's good, and yes I now have a 360.)

I have about $180 in my wallet, but my parents told me I'm not allowed to buy any video games.
The only thing I can think of is going to GameStop or something, and buy it there.
It would have to be once the game is already out, though, and then I don't get my Portal pin. ):

Quote from: Wolsk
Dear Valve,

I was planning on buying the Portal 2 + Potato Sack pack to save some money.
I already have Portal 2 on my account, but I don't have the Potato Sack.
I would like to buy the pack for myself to get the Potato Sack.
However, I was wondering if I'd be able to gift Portal 2 to my friend.
I wasn't sure if Portal 2 would show up under my available gifts if I did this.
Please respond as soon as possible because I don't want to price to go up.
Thanks.

Source? I've been going by http://valvearg.com/wiki/GLaDOS@Home (http://valvearg.com/wiki/GLaDOS@Home) which states clearly that the number of potatoes people have is proportional to how fast the bars fill up, which is based on how many people are playing each game.

Title: Re: Portal 2
Post by: Wolsk on April 19, 2011, 10:43:02 am
I was going to pre-order Portal 2 for my brother, but I had a question for Valve.
They always take way too long to respond, so I haven't gotten an answer yet.
About 5 minutes before Portal 2 was released, I quit TF2 to go pre-order it.
Then, Steam decided to be retarded and not let me go to the store page.
I ended up having to restart my computer, and by then, it was too late.
I wasn't able to pre-order it for my brother, so I lost out on $5.00.
My brother also didn't get any of the free skins/hats for pre-ordering.
I don't think he'd care about the hats and stuff, but I don't have much money...
Losing out on $5.00 made me angry with Valve and Steam.
And yes, I know $5.00 isn't very much at all, but I still lost out.

Also, GODDAMN THAT GOLDEN POTATO.
I was wondering what you'd get for it.
How is that possibly worth the complete pack?...
If I had known that, I would have just bought the Potato Sack.
I would have gotten way more stuff that way.
I also would have gotten Portal 2.
Title: Re: Portal 2
Post by: That One Guy on April 20, 2011, 10:40:09 am
I still can't believe Valve would find a fucking GOLDEN POTATO from getting all of the potatoes in indie games in a pack worth the COMPLETE PACK. That's like giving a chocolate factory to a kid just for getting a golden ticket- Oh.

Some people think that Chell is the daughter of Cave Johnson and Caroline. I actually think this could be true, but that Caroline gave Chell away to an employee because Cave had Mercury poisoning, which had turned him into a crazy scientist (whereas before he only created shower curtains)
