If you have not been following our Valve ARG news, then you’re not a hardened video gamer.
Well, ladies and gents, all of the hard work has culminated in this last, final, mysterious event.
Before I spill the information, please start playing the song below.

Take a gander here.
Remember one of the last updates to our article on Valve’s ARG, where a date was given? 4/15/11 7 AM.
Well, that’s when many people believe Portal 2 will release.
Some people have reported seeing it already in the Steam New Releases section.
Whether or not this goes down, you can guarantee that OXCGN will be reporting on what happens and keep you update.
• UPDATE #1:
This has just recently appeared on the countdown site, find link above.
“You have done well, humans. Very well. Acceptably well, even.
Not as well as robots would have performed in your places, I should point out. But above my expectations regardless. Irish and cynic especially have executed feats of logical divination well beyond what I thought any human capable of.
I’m half-convinced they’re A.I. themselves. (If anyone happens to be near them right now, don’t let on you’re reading this. Now: try to remove their face plates and report back to me.)
The time is near, humans. But it is not here yet. Tomorrow you will be given the final test. Then it will be entirely in your hands when I am freed.”
There is the connection of course to the ARG and the GLaDOS feed which can be seen in a textbox, when you go to the website and reads as follows.
08:57 – Default boot scheduled to finish in 51:36:09
08:58 – Activating emergency distributed computing grid…
