    I run maxed everything, no lag. 5850 is good enough. Don't know the FPS though.

    Yeah I can easily run it on the 5870M with no stuttering at any kind and the game looks very stunning. Compared to Half Life 2, Portal 2 looks like it is using a totally new engine. That tells you the testament to how Source over the last half a decade can still adapt on graphics without significantly boosting the specifications. I believe Portal 2 is the latest iteration to Source's flagship as a game engine (with TF 2 the previous flagship).

    I am also at Chapter 6. Every time I felt the game ended, there is always a new twist! :D

    Love this game so far :)

    I get around 70-80 fps on my 3 GB nvidia 555m (900p)

    Lots of hate for the DLC in this game. Metacritics reviews are at a 96 for reviewers and 59 for consumers... every one is whining at how much the NON-Important DLC's, cost...

    Also lots of hate because of the length. I don't think they realize there is an editor to be released sometime, or that there's co-op.

    I think people are bitter in general because of the false perception that Portal 2 was going to be released over the weekend, the crappy award for the 36 potatoes, cheaper pricing at launch opposed to pre-order, and other minor quibbles.

    So far though I am liking the game, just a little too same-same as Portal 1 but I haven't progressed very far yet.

    Just a friendly reminder:
    Use spoiler tags if you want to talk about the plot! I'm still loading and probably will be for another few days...I don't want to read anything! :p

    Good point, yes please use spoiler tags. I will be taking my time because, well, I have to and don't want it ruined. I've avoided any spoilers so far.

    technically they are not DLCs. They are more of microtransaction items like in TF2. And you can find them in game just like in TF2; and most importantly, they are all OPTIONAL.
