So, according to a few walkthroughs I just watched on youtube, I did level 18 in a much easier way (although not quicker).

SPOILERS:

In the second room, with the 4 sentries, 1 rotating electricity ball thrower, and there is a containment thing to your left. Well, I think the idea is to do it super quick, portal the electrical ball to line up and then quick portal up to the switch to open the door. Not the way I did it. At the toxic waste level there is a platform. So I portaled one next to the contained containment thing, and another down the level. Did the super jump thing (which, when it comes to vertical height, hadn't been necessary yet, though that comes in the next room, I believe), and landed on to the top of the containment thing. Then I just inched my way on to the back of that platform, put out my portals, and pressed the button to open the door at the appropriate time. Way freaking easier than trying to figure out how I can possibly cast all those portals correctly and quickly enough without screwing up.

Meh, I'm still stuck in that room. I don't yet understand the super jump explaination. I will figure it out. Also, if you were meant to hit the switch I'm screwed aren't I?

There is a switch on a pedestal in front of the door that needs to be opened by it.

I just set everything up, saved, then moved really quickly and kept on doing it until I did it right.

Screwing around with the challenges, and I just did the live-fire one using only two portals (gold for the challenge). It was a lot of crouching behind blocks (though I only used 4-5 total).

Finished downloading the orange box. Not sure how TF2 works, but half life is looking decent.

Hunt the AHMETxRock..

(It involves lying quietly in this thicket, eyeballing my victim's rock-star lifestyle while my bile-inducing rage evolves into a physical presence inside of me, cuddling this .223 to my bosom like a baby lamb capable of slaughter...

You only get one point, eventually, but it's the one that counts... )



That and Metro 2033 - which is like S.T.A.L.K.E.R for dummies.... :/

God damn sniper battles. I only won once, and that was by sidestepping a headshot at the last second. I had 7 health but got him in the head.
My best record was 14 kill streak as a heavy. I really wish I knew which map I was on, because that was fun. I also can't toggle between my weapons quickly enough when some damn enemies run into my view. I still haven't had the chance to play them all. If anyone wants to explain the item combination concept I'd appreciate it. Also, does having a level 1 weapon make me weaker than the dude witha level 60 weapon? Is there a place to read up on this, for dummies? We all know I'm a dummy.

I think the "level" is just the time that you randomly received the item. Like the interval that you received it at. Idk. I'm pretty sure it doesn't affect stats at all. Been awhile since I've played.


ANYWAYS I JUST PLAYED AN AWESOME CTHULU BOARDGAME AND I FUCKEN CLOSED SOME MUFUCKN CTHULU GATES AND SHUT THAT SHIT DOWN. KILLED ME A SHOGGOTH AND A UH FLYING THING. I FORGOT WHAT IT'S CALLED. A NIGHTGAUNT. YEAH. WOO. LOVECRAFT.

Yeah I think my friend has that Lovecraft board game as well. Apparently it is quite brilliant.

It fucking is. It's cooperative and stressful AS FUCK. OH GOD. Like every encounter beats me into submission. And you desperately have to keep track of your sanity and stamina as you have to use them to seal the gates but if you lose all of one or the other then you lose half your shit and it's UGH. SO HARD. You have to do a "horror roll" before you fight a monster to check if you LOSE SOME OF YOUR SANITY JUST BY LOOKING AT IT BECAUSE OF HOW HORRIFYING IT IS. THEN. THEN. THEEEN. You have to do your standard combat roll. And you will probably lose. It's almost guaranteed. The game is too difficult.

So, thoughts on Red Dead Redemption? So far I've spent half an hour killing birds and random civilians by horseback and it seems pretty fucking sweet.

I recently downloaded Braid, I've only played it for a few minutes but it's pretty different so far. I like it.
