    Potatoes are only there for false hope so we think we're accomplishing something.
    Just like everything else

    A Valve employee pretty much confirmed they can be used to overclock the CPU cycles, however, how that is done hasn't been said. If they hit a certain number, maybe we can see a huge boost, however, not enough to know probably.

    But really, who doesn't own at least Amnesia or Killing Floor or one of the smaller indie games. Even with that logic, for $2.50 you could get a potato right now.
    Hey, I'm not spending 2.50 on a fake potato.

    I don't think the potatoes are multiplying anything at all. They're probably just adding up to something that we will probably never reach.
    Yesterday, when the java script that showed you how much total game time was required to complete the bars. I calculated when TWEOTW would end if it continued with same amount of cores. The amount of cores decreased although not by much and the bars finished 30 minutes early. I might add that I did my calculations 1 hour before it completed, so I got 1 hour and half until it got completed.

    Again, false hope.

    I'm mostly being sarcastic when I say that, but to be honest, we've gained at least 150K+ Potatoes since this started and they haven't seemed to make much of a difference.

    So did the National really make a song for Portal 2?
    Yes, they did. :)
    Never heard of them, but I like them.

    You're spending $2.50 on an awesome indie game, RUSH or Toki Tori. I personally enjoy Toki Tori better and had it before the whole thing was known, and think it's totally worth $2.50.

    Rush has absoloutely nothing challenging about it cause of that hint system, glados is the only thing standing between you and brain destroying puzzles.

    Don't use the hint system then. I agree though it is cheap. Toki Tori was the more challenging and fun of the two IMO.

    I enjoyed Rush despite the hint system. Though it isn't a very long game (5-10 hours with all achievements unlocked), it passes the $1/1hour margin while being fun and relaxing at the time.

    It would be better maybe after a ton of tries it pops up and gives you a low score, but right now it just can be abused and make it pointless to be called a puzzle game.

    True. It reminds me of Chu Chu Rocket in a way, and I loved those old Dreamcast titles.

    I think we could have gotten this yesterday if the Steam Community actually cared and did their part. If everyone got just one free NELIPOT potato from the group, we'd have around 2.5 MILLION potatoes. Instead we have 300,000 in the amount of weeks and weeks. No one cares.
    >Actually cared and did their part
    Not everyone is interested in the game. And there's even groups boycotting the GLaDOS@home thing.

    There's a modified map that contains a lot of potato bins, you can't cheat on getting the 2nd potato though.

    Yeah they'd rather boycott something optional and bitch and moan then just do something superbly simple, or wait for the release date. One of them was a joke against the L4D2 thing though. But really, how many people on Steam do you think are not interested in Portal 2?

    Edited:

    Should I buy the Potato Pack?
    That's up to you. If you do I'd love to have the rest of the pack I'm missing.

    So I just pre-ordered Portal 2 and got Portal 1 for free.

    Would someone be willing to gift me AaAaAA!!! & 1...2...3... KICK IT or Amnesia for it?

    For amnesia you could live with the fact that you've probably disabled my ability to sleep for a few days (thus helping with the ARG ;)

    Nope, just updating the time, and how long I'm surviving... but yes, is dumb post the same screenshot. It's just like situation report.

    Along with the same caption below.
    And no, the last screenshot caption was: I have not... come this far... to die now...

    also, I'm still alive

    If there is a cap then we would be wasting time by all running the same game at once.
