Portal: Prelude, as its name states it, is an unofficial prequel to the game Portal. Its story revolves around the pre-GlaDOS epoch, even before she was plugged in. At this time, test subjects were monitored by real Aperture Science employees, whose work was tedious, lengthy and repetitive. This is why they decided to build a great artificial intelligence that could both replace them in these difficult tasks, and also take responsibility for many other tasks within the complex and compete with Black Mesa's superiority. All employees of the Aperture Science complex are now eagerly awaiting GlaDOS. Maybe even a little too eagerly, as the upcoming events will tell... This game is totally free. It offers a bit more gameplay hours than the original Portal, with 8 chapters, 19 test chambers, 48 challenges, 6 advanced maps, a brand new storyline and more than 400 lines of english speech with dozens of subtitles translations.

I'm building a friend a PC capable of running UT3 on max settings for somewhere in the neighborhood of $600. If you stick with an AM2 board you can easily get a screamer of a processor for dirt cheap, RAM is inexpensive and the 9800 GT is quite the budget card.

To be honest, the UT3 mods and AA's new release blew everything else out of the water. The Haunted and The Ball especially stand out, easily overshadowing the "editor's pick" by a long shot.

The reason the mod was selected as editors pick was due to really awesome marketing plan that the team behind portal prelude produced. No other mod this year has been that popular it was more a tip of the hat to the team, kudos to you!

Right below my post there will be a great battle fought between Valve fanboys and Valve hateboys (this happens always when a Source mod is released for some reason).

Shame the first 3rd party game mod released via Steam didn't get a mention. Especially considering that is using the Unreal engine also. :(

and to those commenting that they like the look of all the ut3 mods - that has definately been the whole point of ut3. you will not BELIEVE what is being done under various bonnets right now.

the best is definately yet to come!

much kudos to all the great teams out there pumping epic's engine for all its worth.
