Portal: Still Alive expansion out next week for the 360!

I think I can speak for the entire internet when I say that Portal, a very good game included in Valve's 'The Orange Box', was perhaps the most meme-tastic game of the last five years. The incredible ending song is now sung around the world anywhere that you might find a large gathering of nerds. The term 'the cake is a lie' is posted on thousands of internet message boards daily. Rick rolling is less popular than Portal references and that takes some damned hard work.

Portal was and is a very good FPS puzzle game. It is a good thing then that it is getting an official expansion which will be available on Xbox Live next Wednesday on the 22nd of October 2008. The expansion will also include the full original game so those who didn't buy 'The Orange Box' (shame on you!) can get the best game in the whole collection by downloading it off Xbox Live. New content comes in the form of 14 Xbox 360 exclusive new challenge maps and six advanced maps that weren't in the original.

Remember, this was a triumph.
