Default New Ball DLC! Aperture Science level!

Hey all,

I'm not an owner of this game but figured I would post news of this update on this forum for everyone who is.

YouTube - The Ball Potato Sack DLC Level

A REALLY clever trailer, btw. I love how Valve is working with so many indy devs like TWI. It's great for their sales and it's awesome for the PC gaming community.

Is this update permanent??

I hope so!!!

I have the game, but can't play yet til I get a PC, seeing as I'm using a Mac. :/ And I love Portal!

What is up with the 4th test chamber? As far as I can see it you are supposed to get the burning cube on that big red button near to the entrance.

But adjusting the tubes follows no logic, it is just trial and error. Someone solve it for me, it is pointless.

What the fork?

How should I know that, and what does Glados say? That is just it? The level isn't even ending. I hate the potato day, it doesn't make any sense ...

EDIT: Ok it says it here http://valvearg.com/wiki/The_Ball ???

I loved this, it was awesome. Got to the end, puzzles were hard but not impossible, I had to look up the solution for just a couple of them

Great work, and really cool you got the original voice actor to do Glados - at least sounds like her. Liked the bit about the monkeys at the end

Also:

Do you have to have the steam copy to play the extra levels? I only ask because I saw a retail copy of the game and it was a little cheaper then on steam.

I remember trying to get the potatoes for the Golden Potato challenge. It sucked because at the time I had an integrated card. Made it almost impossible to play because the game is particle heavy.
