has anyone made a portal 2 boycott group yet? as I might do, due to these reasons:

- game is way too early, wth valve!

- looking at the new screenshots its running on a bbs system so we would all need new hardware :(

- no confirmation if they game will have any cake at all

- plus they said it may come in a box with other games but no confirmation of l4d3 or TF3 D:

- the first portal game had one DLC only, this is no way to treat fans

- there is a mac version which is far superior than windows, I find this annoying

- new puzzles are gonna be tough for us gamers, I do not want to spend a day working out how to scramble a image from a audio file to get to the next chamber

- no Alxy Vance or Zoey in this game..... Seriously Valve how will this game ever sell?

- two player co-op will have no dedicated servers, major problem for us gamers

Please post any other problems you have with the game, together we can make this a successful boycott and show that as a united gamer front that we can say NO to games that do not serve us.

Edit by Shane:
This is clearly a light hearted joke. I'll leave individuals to discern the quality of the humor, but PLEASE stop reporting it. Have a sense of humor and lighten up.

All of your points are stupid. If something was early, it was L4D2. P2 is totally fine.

Great. Just freaking great! The game has only been announced less than a day ago and there's already a boycott group trying to ♥♥♥♥ things up! The only reason I would wanna boycott this game is because Half-Life 2: Episode 3 has not been announced before Portal 2 but that doesn't matter since Valve is hard at work still developing it as we speak.

If they really release Portal 2 before Epsiode 3 i doubt they even started working on Episode 3.

For the boycott group im not happy about Portal 2 and im not buying it so you could say i boycott it but i seem to be the only one having that problem. The OP is just making fun of it and you are not able to read thats all.

I like this thread, and I'm leaving a comment here to serve as a bookmark. There are people who get it, people who don't get it or (more likely) didn't read the post, and then people who call you a troll.

Guys, let's define troll. From http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/trolling, a troll is someone who "will state something only with the intention of stirring up controversy." This guy is clearly not creating controversy, but rather being funny.

Being funny != trolling.

I mean, I'm not being condescending, I'd just really like to know if there's somewhere that defines it like that. I don't frequent knowyourmeme, but it's the only place I could think of that would define it in terms of Internet forums.

Mistake? A mistake is misspelling a word or accidentally doing something.

Not reading is a conscious action. A poor decision, too. On a forum, if you don't read...then why are you even here?

Remember, kiddies: literacy is a good thing, but only if you use it.

[Edit:]

Also, it was not a mistake that I was rude. I think you misunderstand the word. Is English your first language?

I won't get Portal without even knowing that they work on Episode 3. Hell even that this thread made me smile for a moment is now gone and if im the only freakin person but to hell with Portal2. Put it into an Aperture Science Emergency Intelligence Incinerator and leave it there.:mad:

not enough facepalms for you guys.......


Also maybe its not a bad idea because getting invited to play the game because you made a Boycott Group sounds good to me but i would not like to play portal 2 i trust them when they say its good instead i would like to play Episode 3 if they have started working on it of course.....

has anyone made a portal 2 boycott group yet? as I might do, due to these reasons:

- game is way too early, wth valve!

- looking at the new screenshots its running on a bbs system so we would all need new hardware :(

- no confirmation if they game will have any cake at all

- plus they said it may come in a box with other games but no confirmation of l4d3 or TF3 D:

- the first portal game had one DLC only, this is no way to treat fans

- there is a mac version which is far superior than windows, I find this annoying

- new puzzles are gonna be tough for us gamers, I do not want to spend a day working out how to scramble a image from a audio file to get to the next chamber

- no Alxy Vance or Zoey in this game..... Seriously Valve how will this game ever sell?

- two player co-op will have no dedicated servers, major problem for us gamers

Please post any other problems you have with the game, together we can make this a successful boycott and show that as a united gamer front that we can say NO to games that do not serve us.

This is the only thing that is keeping me from being angry at the moment. I mean you people really don't get it? Read and think about it. Maybe someone should explain a joke to you but oh wait that is the problem that is taking the fun away. Maddogge at least we have our fun.;)

Sarcasm seems to be a hard-to-get concept. I remember once reading that children won't understand irony until the age of about 7. But maybe some people won't learn to understand irony ever (that's at least less harsh than thinking they couldn't read at all ;) ).
But these two threads are just hilarious. I'll come over to you two and watch this. Want a pizza? ;)

You know that wish people they should die is not only one but even two things?

Guys, let's define troll. From http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/trolling, a troll is someone who "will state something only with the intention of stirring up controversy." This guy is clearly not creating controversy, but rather being funny.

Being funny != trolling.
Actually since he is sarcastically ridiculing a bunch of concerns of PC gamers as though they where ridiculous. He kind of is stirring up controversy.

Do you believe that multilayer centered games with a medium low amount of content should be released at full price as well as having a full priced a medium content expansion like addition?
That is controversial.
Do you believe that dedicated servers are stupid and aren't needed for any type of multi-player game?
That is controversial.

and in general this post, with it's sarcasm, seems to criticize complaints about games in general.

Now, I won't call him a troll because he and others fails to see how this joke can annoy some...
But my concerns have been stated. Try to execute your jokes in a more agreeable manner

- game is way too early, wth valve!

- looking at the new screenshots its running on a bbs system so we would all need new hardware :(

- no confirmation if they game will have any cake at all

- plus they said it may come in a box with other games but no confirmation of l4d3 or TF3 D:

- the first portal game had one DLC only, this is no way to treat fans

- there is a mac version which is far superior than windows, I find this annoying

- new puzzles are gonna be tough for us gamers, I do not want to spend a day working out how to scramble a image from a audio file to get to the next chamber

- no Alxy Vance or Zoey in this game..... Seriously Valve how will this game ever sell?

- two player co-op will have no dedicated servers, major problem for us gamers

Please post any other problems you have with the game, together we can make this a successful boycott and show that as a united gamer front that we can say NO to games that do not serve us.

2. They never said anything about another Box

3. DLC does NOT a game make

4. The only difference between the Mac and Windows versions is in your ♥♥♥♥ing head ( :o )

5. You didn't have any trouble with your own custom puzzles in Portal

6. Portal 1 sold better without them, I think Portal 2 can
PS. You seriously have a problem not watching them? :rolleyes:

has anyone made a portal 2 boycott group yet? as I might do, due to these reasons:

- game is way too early, wth valve!

- looking at the new screenshots its running on a bbs system so we would all need new hardware :(

- no confirmation if they game will have any cake at all

- plus they said it may come in a box with other games but no confirmation of l4d3 or TF3 D:

- the first portal game had one DLC only, this is no way to treat fans

- there is a mac version which is far superior than windows, I find this annoying

- new puzzles are gonna be tough for us gamers, I do not want to spend a day working out how to scramble a image from a audio file to get to the next chamber

- no Alxy Vance or Zoey in this game..... Seriously Valve how will this game ever sell?

- two player co-op will have no dedicated servers, major problem for us gamers

Please post any other problems you have with the game, together we can make this a successful boycott and show that as a united gamer front that we can say NO to games that do not serve us.

Edit by Shane:
This is clearly a light hearted joke. I'll leave individuals to discern the quality of the humor, but PLEASE stop reporting it. Have a sense of humor and lighten up.


Trololololol, it stands for troll and lol

go back under your bridge, troll.

I wish I had the 'There's a new trend on the internet: JOKES!' image on hand, but alas, I don't. Looks like I'll just have to explain it to you.

There's this thing called jokes. People on the internet like to make jokes, as it creates a humor filled environment between that user and other users.

'Trolling' is purposely trying to provoke a angry reaction from someone.

Get it right.

Hey I'll join. Hopefully Valve will invite me to visit their studio to play some Portal 2 to show me how worthwhile of a sequel it is. :)
