Hello all, I've always dreamt about making one of these OT threads, but never think of it in time. idunno723 usually beats me to it.
Anyway, I need a place to share my observations before this post gets bumped down by all the newcomers creating an entire fanpost to say, "Hey, we could have done better and here's how!"
(By the way, that's annoying. Just put your comments in the post-game thread.)
I was looking over who's going onto the second round and saw some strange parity this year. Both conferences have the #1, 2, 3, and 5 seeds playing in the second round. Last year, the conferences were complements to each other. If I recall correctly, it was #1, 2, 3, and 5 in the west and #4, 6, 7, and 8 in the east. Feel free to correct me below, but does anyone find this telling of the strength of the top teams in each conference (specifically how each division had a really strong team) or is it just coincidence? Geez, this almost sound on-topic. Sorry about that.
So, for something off-topic, who's played Portal or Portal 2? I don't have a stand-alone system that will play it, but have heard wonderful things about it. I love puzzle type games and puzzles in general. For instance, I always play the Mario games on Nintendo to get all the stars and coins, or whatever there is to collect. Anyway, I'd love a review. I've heard it is available for the PC, too.
