Naming this game a "huge success" is really an understatement.

Today's track is Robots FTW from Portal 2

Hey, guess what? You can download this track in a totally free and legal way. Thanks Valve!

If you heard OLR #440 and #441, then you might already know about what are the crew's games of 2011, but taking the No. 1 spot in everyone's list (including Loki's) was Portal 2. Let's just say that it's the best sequel of anything ever. If you haven't played it yet, nor the original Portal, do yourself a favor and please go play them and see what all the hype is about (I'll also be doing a review of Portal 2 if you want to wait for that).

So this is the game of the year, is the soundtrack great? Oh yes it is. Every track in this game is pure genius. Every song in this game matches perfectly the moment you're playing in. There are some really fast-paced action packed songs, while there are other filled with suspense and terror. And of course, there are some really funny ones, like "Want You Gone" written and composed by the one and only Jonathan Coulton. And there's also "Robots FTW".

As to why I picked the latter, the reason is basically spoilers. Even though both songs are the ending credits to the single player and co-op modes respectively, "Want You Gone" has vocals in it, while "Robots FTW" doesn't, and might spoil the game somewhat to those who haven't played. Besides, it's funnier if you get to hear it after playing the game. Another reason why I picked "Robots FTW" is because it's a fun song, it feels like a victory theme. You succeded in your mission (or test) and this song is about celebrating that. So go celebrate the really huge success of Portal 2 and dance to this song.

You can download the whole soundtrack called "Songs to Test by" in the Portal official website: www.thinkwithportals.com in the [Media + Downloads] section or just go here to get to the soundtrack.
