    Is it just Portal sold separately? Or is there anything new?

    I've played it way more than 10 times, but I would still buy it for new levels.. but 1200 points? :(

    I have 910 points already in my account and can't afford more right now :hs:

    looks like all they added are 14 new "challenge" levels.

    they're entirely separate from the story and all take place in test chambers.

    they even have a separate menu than regular story levels.

    I just played the first challenge in the demo.. I know it's the first one.. but it's supposed to be a "CHALLENGE"

    took like 2 minutes to beat.. if that.

    Orange Box can be bought used at GameStop and the like for around $20. What's the point?

    Oh I thought you were saying that Portal in general is not story related (to Half Life).

    Aperture Technologies is a rival corp to Black Mesa and something has obviously gone wrong at their Enrichment Center. This totally sets some potential plot twists for future Half Life episodes.

    so it might be related to the story in the future.

    but right now it isn't.

    if you EVER played Duke3D on PC.. it's the best game and best deal that you can get on xbox live. 800 points ($10) for 39 levels with online deathmatch and 8person co-op
