Episode 144: The Portal 2 Spoilerific Episode

In: Podcasts by Edie Sellers

2 May 2011

Be warned: The first 40 minutes or so of this episode is filled with Portal 2 campaign spoilers. So if you have yet to play, or get more than half way through the game’s story mode, you may want to just skip to news.

News begins at 35:35.

In this episode, there’s a lot to talk about. Not the least of which is the biggest news in gaming in a very long time — and no, it’s not the release Wills and Kate’s Wedding Dash or Headshot 3: Abbottabad:

  • Playstation Network and Qriocity get taken off line for at least two weeks (now Sony’s saying maybe a month). Bottom line: Your personal and credit-card information was stolen, and Sony took better than a week to bother to tell anyone.
  • Rumors float about that the new Wii will come in 2012 and will sport a touchscreen.
  • Gamefly wins an important suit against the US Postal Service that could mean better service and (hopefully) cheaper fees.
  • Gamestop will discontinue Nintendo DS Lite sales when its current stock runs out.
  • The Nintendo 3DS sells a ton, but not as big a ton as they though it would.
  • Emails (including more gay character discussion).

Enjoy.

Im expecting more Portal 2 dlc than TF2, I get the feeling valve is holding back on us, especially since the ‘Pneumatic Diversity Vent’ wasnt in the game. Also, this scene of in game footage didn’t make it into the game, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pcf99_DZZew&feature=related

If you dont know what Pneumatic Diversity Vent’s are; http://wn.com/Portal_2_Pneumatic_Diversity_Vent_Trailer

Those spoilerific warnings were well-founded! I made myself finish single player before I listened. I advise others who haven’t finished Portal 2 to jump ahead as Edie says.

What Leah said about “I knew there was a way out” as inspiration to keep trying. This works on many games, especially if you hear reports that others have already finished the game you’re tackling. It’s a nice reminder that you either haven’t tried everything or you haven’t seen everything.

After all that, I’m ready to try out the “nauseating” gravity gel that was left out of the game.
