I don’t have a portal gun, but my magic media pass allowed me to scientifically bypass a four-hour line to see Portal 2!

    “All reactor core safeguards are now non-functional, please prepare for reactor core meltdown.” Sounds somewhat poignant in view of ‘Fukushima One’ Nuclear Power Plant disaster.

    PAX overflow!

    I thought there were issues that prevented the posting of so many videos at once on the site? Will definitely make the time to see all of them, though. And this will be the first. =~D

    Is that Erik Wolpaw? Of Old Man Murry fame?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sean-Lincoln/503842752 Sean Lincoln

      Indeed it is. Valve hired him a while ago. He’s worked on TF2 and Portal 2 so far.

    Valve should of got Karl Pilkington to be that little robot. His head is the same shape as the robot, it would of been perfect.

      Absolutely. Head like a fucking orange!

    I’m not impressed with Portal 2 so far. It seems to me that Valve exctracted the small things that made Portal such a lovely game and then blew them to epic proportions for the sequel. That blue eye robot thing at the beginning of the singleplayer game gets on my nerves. I’m not sure I want to play a whole game with this annoying Disney/Pixar sidekick trying to be funny.

      You have a poor sense of humor. That demo was nothing except hilarious.

    Awesome nice coverage spoony and also its great to hear another Bristolian like myself in Portal 2, Good old Justin Lee Colins as the Botorbthing

    Great job, welcome back!

    Haha. Aw. You can tell he wanted to cut in several times as you were talking, but he had to wait for you to ask a question. I think he had a lot to say.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mitchell-Bandes/100001750373297 Mitchell Bandes

      Actually, I think he was struggling to avoid spoiling the whole damn game right then and there.

      • Anonymous

        No, I… Actually just think he couldn’t get a word in edgewise. Look at how he sorta opens his mouth at some points when Spoony’s talking. He doesn’t get eye contact during these times, so he was never given a chance.

        • http://spoonyexperiment.com The Spoony One

          Yeah, I felt a little silly looking back at the footage. I was so excited just talking about my impressions of the demo I sort of just raved about how cool it was the whole time. I do wish I’d just clammed up and asked him straight-up to tell us about the demo.

          It happens. When I get fired up I tend to motor-mouth, and it’s only later that I realize I was being pretty inconsiderate. Believe me, it’s a character flaw I acknowledge and try very hard to rid myself of. But y’know, this demo was pretty awesome. ;)

            I don’t blame you. That game looks fantastic.

    im pretty sure that 99.999999999999% of all gamers can agree that portal is probably going down in history as one the most important games to ever existed.

    the amount of new features is simply over welming, its like going in a comma in 1985 after playing the NES and wakeing up to the xbox 360 and ps3 even though this is just one game. leave it to valve to NEVER disappoint.

    Dear god. I wasn’t really THAT much excited about Portal 2 but after seeing this HILARIOUS scene I can’t wait! Valve did it once again!

    I loved the first Portal to death. I’m sure that’s the story with everyone. The black humor and the puzzles is what snagged me. I’ve been looking forward to Portal 2 since the first videos of it came out. I can’t wait to see what GLaDOS has to say to you, now that you’re back. She’s not going to be happy, that’s for sure.

    Also, I’ll bet that Cave Johnson is a computer program thingie like the one at the beginning. I’ll bet he’s not a real person. And, I’ll bet he’s not a recording either.

    I like this demo trailer; finally they got someone who knows what the fuck there doing. Most of the time it seems they grab some random bum off the street to play the game. Anyone remember the Alien Vs Predator (2010) gameplay demo trailer ; the guy took about 5 mins. to go around a cubicle, he tried jumping over it, he tried shooting the glass part, and finally realized all he had to do was go around it.

    Line for me was two hours, though I got there at the beginning of the convention. I thought the demo was neat and I got a free shirt, so it wasn’t all bad but not exactly worth the wait.

    Merchants just a bit too much of a one note joke that Ive heard too often in those Barclays adverts. If he’s just going to be a character that follows you around making the same glib comments the same way he does every other appearance it might put me off buying it

    The scene in the bedroom feels like a ride at Disney World because you feel like you are in the room as the event happens. Combine that with the comedy of Stephen Merchant and J.K. Simmons and you have a first class demo!

    No one will believe this, but I met someone who has played the first Portal … and DIDN’T LIKE IT!

    What do we do? Kill him? Neuter him so he can’t reproduce? Administer shock therapy? WHAT?!

    No comment in the last 7 months. No link to this in the videos listing… And now even going to this file in Blip it says it and almost all the other PAX East videos are no longer working. I really hope it is temporary.
