This is a little late but I thought better late than never and have people miss out!
Steam is giving portal away free until the 24th may to promote it's new mac support.

Portal is really one of my favourite games (which is a short list of about 4/5 games) if you've never heard of it I think you should contact NASA cause they might be interested in having a look under that rock on mars you've been living under.

Here's a review as part of the orange box by zeropunctuation

Portal is a great game!
Although it's too bad I'm still waiting for the linux steam client to be released (but on the other hand, I'm surprised they are even making a linux steam client, which should do great for bringing games to linux Grin).


The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive.

Wine is an absolutely amazing piece of software, but it has a huge problem of having very variable results when you run under different distributions and hardware. Steam won't even start up for me X|

Checking the website, that was apparently only a one time thing as a celebration for President Bush doing something right for once. Unless he does something right again, I'm in for a long wait. Especially since he can't be president anymore and all that. Wink

I might just buy it. I've always wanted to try out steam, anyways.
