    Somebody is trying to pull a (very poor) fast one on unsuspecting idiots. The file name (Portal_2_USA_NDS-XPA) is actually listed as a release. I don't know about you, but it makes me laugh if anybody even begins to believe this. The photoshopped screens I've seen haven't even been well done. I agree with what I read elsewhere; this would have been better if it had been a 3DS hoax. I guess that would have been more difficult though with the 3DS scene still being so new. Yes, this does show up on places such as rom-news. Yes, it has been given a release number.

    Remember folks, this isn't real. If you're stupid enough to go download some virus or something that's labeled as this, then you deserve it.

    I had a difficult time deciding where this should go, then I figured, it's a fake game release for the DS, so I would just throw it into the DS game discussions. Obviously, it can be moved if it is better suited elsewhere.

    I almost believed it until I saw the screens. The graphics were way too good for the ds.

    It's from DS-Scene, who believes anything from them?

    EOF =/= where I tread

    The EOF is the last place I check for anything that could even remotely resemble news of any kind. I know lots of other people don't bother with the EOF either. I personally find it to be insufferable for the most part, so I avoid it like the plague.

    @A Gay Little Cat Boy: Check out rom-news.org. It's still listed. It looks like other places were smart enough not to bother with it.

    You're only saying that cause' you're not a member. It's actually a very cozy and pleasant place to be.

    It was ok for the time that I was an active member. The site moves far too slow for me to bother going around anymore though. It doesn't help that the site can go dead for days at a time with literally nothing moving. Spurts of activity just don't work for me.

    Actually I had an account on there (under a much older and different screen name) for a short period of time before I found the Temp. Quite honestly I found the site to be very hustle and poorly manged. I couldn't stand it there for the short period of time I was there.

    A simple matter of taste then. As far as management goes, I'm not quite sure what you're on about, but I'd appreciate it if you won't spread hate for no reason. I'm a huge fan of peace, there's a place for everyone in the Internet.

    You may not like the site, but you don't have to say it's poorly managed shit with no believable information on it. That's your opinion.

    As far as the release is concerned, it's a *joke*. Brought a smile to my face, if it didn't to the others, then their sense of humour must've been aborted early in their life.

    I won't push my options on people, nor would I want to start anything about this.
    But with that said, I won't stop insulting that site regardless.

    Just beat the first level. It's a pretty good game once you get past the aiming.

    People with high demand for tolerance are obviously the first to be intolerant. Do what you will though - you're free to do so, as long as you have valid reasons and arguments to support your statements.

    I don't think I need valid evidence to back up an option. I didn't like the site, I still don't like the site, and nothing will change the fact that I will continue to talk shit about that site. Much like anyone on that site can talk shit about the Temp, I think it's valid for someone here to talk shit as well. To add to that I am demanding anyone's tolerance and really don't see how you got to that conclusion that I was.
