So I picked up Portal 2 during the week and am a couple of chapters into the single-player campaign. Really liking it so far. There's a robot character called Wheatley in the single-player. He's funny, but I find the performance a little too human. The character's a bumbling idiot type, which is hard to do with a mechanical performance, and it IS funny, it's just a break in tone from the first game and pulled me out of the world a bit. That's my main nitpick so far, and it's not a big one.

Keith got a copy too, so we're going to have a go of the (allegedly excellent) co-op at some point.

[EDIT: Nothing to do with Portal, but if you've got Playstation Plus, you can get Braid for the PS3 for €2.50 in Europe at the moment, and probably similarly cheap elsewhere in the world. Seeing as everyone's got Playstation Plus at the moment, Braid's a fun and good-looking platform puzzler, and €2.50 is a fantastic price for it.

the point about wheatley being like that is to point out how opposite of GLaDOS he is.

just read the commentary sometime after you beat the game.

Yeah... little text, hard to read. And only if it's Frozen Custard.

Tiny Text When you put tiny text in an image that in fact has something written on it, and not just squiggles. Fans will find a way to read it. It's almost like a super-power. Squint-0-vision. But ya. Custard. It equals the awesome.

Random Custard fact. If you filled a swimming pool with it you'd be able to run over the top without sinking.

I think the running-on-custard thing works with ketchup as well, it's something to do with viscosity and reaction to force.

Keith wouldn't drink a pint of ketchup, though.

portal! HATE weathley!

How he dares to call glados a monster... can you believe him!?

And i have no idea of how to say "salsa golf" in english, but i like that one :P

someitmes icant help but feel sorry about wheatley, especially towards the end.

sure he's the worlds biggest idiot, and became mad, but still, he seemed upset at some point.

Reply Puppy_Luv, June 29th, 2011, 5:28 am

actually, i really liked wheatley :P

what i didn't like in P2 was Glados... they ruined her in this installment, she was better before she had an identity and a background >.>

@Puppy_Luv: I haven't gotten that far yet, I've been enjoying her resentment and the constant affirmations that I am indeed a terrible person. And also fat.

I'm a little bit into Act 2 now. Without giving too many spoilers away, I've gotten to the bit where they introduce the blue bouncy crap, and I'm finding the pre-recorded messages and various safety signs in this area hilarious.

cave johnson is portal 2's #1 fav character. especially when you get to the end of the first level with the white gell. you'll see :D

If you are already with the bouncy thing, you should have known about glados and wheatley :P And their past together

Glados is good deep inside... REALLY deep inside...

Yay! I fucking love custard too!

Goes to show you can't assume no-one can read tiny letters :).

Custard indeed, Greninja-person. Custard indeed...

...isn't that like pudding or something? My people say I'm a merry can or something so things get lost in transpiration.
