Wish Awakening had been released, would have put money on them being here if it was finished.

Makes me want to create a new portal mod now. Havn't got the time to create a new game so i may have a play and make a portal mod instead.

Ugh desura PLEASE find some way to combine forces with steam (you don't have to become conglomerated by them just... feature your service on theirs and vice versa) I really love the mod support but there's no way I'm gonna buy anything on there =( cause I really like keeping all my games in one place. That's kindof the main point that I use steam in the first place

You don't need to re-buy Portal via Desura. In fact, you can't. It sees your Steam Portal and works off of it. If I choose to play a mod via Desura, the steam "Launching Portal..." box still comes up.

Desura simply installs the mods (well, Source mods) to your Steam sourcemods folder. They will also show up on your Steam list of games after you restart too.

Steam freezes your computer up when you run it with either an IM program, or an antivirus. It also uses up a lot of bandwith. Portal is a single player game so you can install it to your PC, then apply a Non-Steam patch which is full legal as long as you own the game. Desura on the other hand, works flawless.

Portal Prelude is actually a great mod. Have to try the others as well.

Why did you not include Moddb page Links to them, why did they all have to be DESURA links?

I HATE Portal: Prelude. Not only is the voice software so lazy that it distracts from gameplay, the level design is flawed up the ***. The story is inconsistent with the Portal's original vision and makes the entirety of Apeture Science seem like actually evil people instead of misguided. Not to even mention the horrid final boss sequence. I really wish to never play that mod again. It's overhyped, blinding so many with the fact that it has scripted conversations.

It is just not like other Portal mods, it has it's own charm. I like it more than others (except for Factum Solus, that is my favourite).
