    Thinking about it there are a few cinematics in the 2 episodes, recaps of the previous installments if I'm not mistaken. None the less, multiple updates of that size...

    EDIT: duh, logo movies on startup too. maybe I should try and sleep between these press conferences :p

    there will definitely be an announcement of some sort at E3 over the next few days, Gabe enabled auto reply on his email address;

    well, surprise was Gabe rocking up during Sony's conference to announce Portal 2 for PS3, stating it would be the best console version of the game. Also made a joke about his previous comments on developing for the PS3, obviously he's changed his mind on the matter. Regardless, PC version will always be best.

    It was a very well done announcement though, no doubt you can find it on youtube, Valve certainly delivered on the "surprise" aspect.

    EDIT:

    Skip to 1 hour in and watch from there for the surprise :)

    DOUBLE EDIT: GT is overloaded, keeps going down, so here's a youtube link

    Not one to dress up for big launches is he?

    Found it interesting that he introduces himself as someone who just "works" at Valve, as opposed to an variant of "head honcho" at Valve.

    Not a mean feat to get Sony to let Steam tie into the console though I imagine.

    Speaking of such things, when did Portal get a new ending? I just replayed it with my daughter -- I like the new ending!

    Ashlann, where have you been?! (In typically cryptic Valve style, this is how they announced the new ending.)

    News - Portal Update Released

    There's a Portal 2 interview at 1UP with Eric Wolpaw & Doug Lombardi.

    E3 2010: Portal 2 Stage Show Video Demo Video from GameVideos

    Just try to ignore the interviewer, try really hard.

    Sounds like some interesting developments in the gameplay. Not sure if I want to go hunting down all the gameplay videos though. Might rather prefer to experience it all without preconceptions.
