Portal 2 (Beta) - Linux
So the release came out recently for a Beta Linux Port.
If you want to be part of the Beta tryouts:
1. Own a Steam copy of Portal 2.
2. Right-click on Portal 2. Select Properties.
3. Select the "BETAS" tab.
4. Click on the drop down menu and select the Beta option.
5. Close Properties and Play!

So far in "testing", I've completed the Single Player and only found a couple of problems. (I've compared to the Windows version on the same visual, audio etc. setting).
1. At the beginning when GlaDos reboots, the yellow light that is presumably her "eye" doesn't show for a while then appears but smaller than it should be. Later in the game, it seems to be it's normal size.
2. The Laser effects that the Discouragement Redirection Cube are a bit...squiffy. Basically on the Windows version (on the same resolution and aspect ratio), the Lasers look that bit sharper, graphically speaking.

Other than that, and an occasional bit of lag at the very beginning that I blame my processor for, it seems to run very smoothly and an exceptional port.

My testing for the multiplayer will begin tomorrow, for now: What are your problems/ thoughts with the game so far? :D

Have fun testing!
