link to the Unlock Portal 2 early page: http://www.aperturescience.com/glados@home/


today's patch adds some interesting things, could we finally be about to hear that Portal 2 is on it's way?

Link!

Also, is this PC only?

I just started replaying Portal when it went on sale a couple of weeks ago on the 360 (3rd playthrough - a first!).  Unfortunately, I'm already heading to the endgame.  Much as I love it, I don't see myself turning around and going again.

Long story short:

1) You bring the new blinking radios to certain areas in every single level to get rewards.
2) Said rewards are either voice clips or other things.
3) People digging through the game files have realized that some/most of the voice clips are actually image files.
4) Said image files create an md5 hash code that goes to a BBS system that's Glados related.
5) As of last check, nobody knew the user/password to log into said site.

And that was all figured out with the collective internet rushing to solve this riddle. Oh, and it was like less than 6 hours after patching or something.

People were able to log in to the BBS using backup/backup. There are a lot of text files and ascii art in there that people are trying to decipher.

I'm not sure which is more disturbing: that the developers thought setting up a riddle this complicated was a good use of their time or that there are apparently an awful lot of people out there with so much free time to spend chasing it down.

I do feel bad for Valve, who likely spent quite a lot of time on this but had the most complicated parts deciphered in a matter of hours.

The Glados version is 3.11 leading some people to believe something will be announced on March 11.

There's a new patch today.

Apparently, a tweak to the ending has been added.

Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word "surprise", of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.

If you'd like to ask fruitless questions about the E3 Portal 2 surprise or, more fruitfully, schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve's Special Envoy to Surprises, Doug Lombardi.

Thank you for <<RECORD SCRATCH!!!>>

PS: The surprising record scratch is also not the surprise.

If the "Portal 2-themed" surprise at E3 is an announcement that they're releasing it as an episodic game, I'm going to personally come over there and slap them back to their senses.

I'd pay to see that via a live webcast.

The surprise is that they've actually developed portal technology.  That's why it's taking so long to get Episode 3 out.  Wait until you see the demo  icon_biggrin

Is the embedded video in that joystiq link working for anyone else? It's just an empty white space and if I right click on it, it says "Movie not loaded..."

I used to have a similar problem with voodooextreme, but managed to get videos working on that site only to find joystiq videos not working.

Others have said this, but they really need to put a robotic voice filter on the personality sphere guy, assuming that's the final voice actor for that.

Still, it's going to be nice having more more interesting conversation while playing through the game.

The new animation they're doing for this is amazing too. Awfully expressive for robots. slywink

I'm assuming that the tubes don't affect the player, but I'm not sure.

I know Valve wants to make anything deadly in the game pretty obvious.
