Can't decide what to get your significant other for Valentine's day? Valve has posted a helpful Romance Safety Compliance Guide from the folks at Aperture Laboratories that might give you a few ideas.
Guys, unless you want the target of your affections to go all GLaDOS on you, it's probably best to avoid getting her a copy of Portal 2. The game is available for pre-order starting today, though. The PC version is selling for $45 with free shipping, while console flavors cost $10 more.
At least thus far, only Amazon and Gamespot are offering pre-orders in the US. You can also order the game early from vendors in the UK, Spain, France, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland. There are no options for Canadians just yet. It looks like Steam users are out of luck, too. Portal 2 can't yet be ordered using Valve's content delivery service. The game is scheduled to be released in April.
