I've been playing a ton of Portal 2 lately. I'm nearly finished the single-player campaign and then I'll try tackling the multiplayer, but I have to say - there's so much pure awesomesauce crammed into the single-player story-line that I wish it would never end. Almost anything I say about Portal 2 would be a spoiler, so instead I'll just throw out a bunch of phrases, out-of-context, to express my enthusiasm: Wheatley! Reboot! Cave Johnson! Gel! Potato battery! 1982!

One thing I am able to confidently ruin for everybody is that The National's song recorded for Portal 2, Exile Vilify, is fantastic, and is worked into the game in a fairly non-essential (in that if you miss it, you aren't overlooking anything critical to the game itself) but well-implemented manner. Or you can just stream it below.
