Ok, so I gave in after the numerous cake references and such from my friends; (especially sold after Tim sent me the credit music) and I picked up The Orange Box, the self proclaimed; "Best deal in videogames" and ok, I didn't simply purchase the game for Portal's gooey goodness, but I also look forward to seeing G-man on a telelvision screen (the thought is a tad scary) and playing some Team Fortress 2 on my newly acquired Live Subscription!
So what can I say; I have yet to try out HL2, let alone episodes 1&2 (undoubtedly I will have to play through HL2 to remind myself of it) I can't wait to see how it weighs up to the experience on the PC. But it's main selling point; portal is nothing short of absolutely amazing. I'm not sure who wrote the lines for the game, but its so hilariously comedic in a strange frightening way that I have officially fallen in love with the game; I may even devote another entry to it when I have successfully finished it, which probably wont be for a while, as I like to take my time.
You could probably take any one line from GLaDOS and frame it, simply for its simplicity and humor. The game will possibly stay as close to my heart as Psychonauts does (for it's writing)
On the subject of cake, I simply cannot wait for collectormania, and therefore a night out at Wagamama, as their wasabi chocolate cake is divine!! I'd make one myself and pig-out on the thing, but you can't seem to get a damn recipe from anywhere!!
The cake is a lie ..
