Portal 2 Stole My Joke!

RAWR! This is so hilarious. First, watch the Portal 2 Intro Demo assuming you haven't already. Now, watch it again because it was awesome.

Anyway, that little eyeball stole my brute force hacking joke! HAH! I mean, I probably heard it somewhere before I made that joke but I still say it's mine (or Krimsin's and mine I suppose, since it was a collaborative effort coming up with those jokes). That's just so amusing, though. Also, on the mind note, can't wait to see Chell's Mind in Portal 2. HURRY CYH! You only have a year (or two given Valve Delays (c)) to finish Chell's Mind.

Damn, I really want to play that game now though, looks amazing.

Now, go watch this Portal 2 Intro Demo because you know you want to again. Or watch this Harry Potter trailer: Harry Potter and the Deathly Something or Others. Done? Okay, now go watch The Last Airbender this week with me. Okay! Now go watch...um, Avatar....for the 42nd time.....or something.

Anyway, I'm off to go try to see if this chick who gave me her number last week wants to go out for drinks.

EDIT: Hey check this out! Xesum made me a hilarious poster. Check it out. If Barney's Mind ever becomes a motion picture I want this to be the movie poster. :P Thanks dude.

  2. Lucky bastard...

    But wow, Portal is seriously short game. I'll be surprised if she manages to get to 10 episodes sees how she's just about done with the test chambers and about to move into the escape scene.

  3. I've had a life for a while now, why do you think these remakes are taking so long?

    I just haven't been actively looking to date people. But 3 numbers and a facebook in two nights isn't a bad start if I may say so.

    The secret is my secret phrase book. Say as many as you can, as fast as you can. (Also, being friendly doesn't hurt either.)

  4. Oh, and never called the chick, my folks asked me to go see Toy Story 3 with them. I must say, it was worth it, great movie, go see it. The chick can wait till tomorrow (when there's half off beer!).

  5. Hey, catch me later, I'll buy you a beer.

    ...With Canadian loonies!

  6. I'd sell my right kidney on the black market ($30,000) for a chance to play Portal 2 for fifteen minutes. Seriously. Any bidders? Because I want to play that game something terrible.

    @Corky: I think it'll take a bit longer, especially when I hit the super-hard chambers. Plus there's lots of room for failure in the behind-the-scenes areas, along with exploration with the Cube and Ratman dens, as well as turret evasion and rocket practice and enormous mazes filled with bullets...Aperture is scary...

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't know whether to be more shocked that you would go to such lengths to play Portal 2, or the fact that you actually know how much a kidney goes for on the black market.

    Even still, you can only stretch it out so far before it becomes dragged out. Just be careful how much you decide to push the limits to lengthen it.

  8. Well, as Ian was saying, Cyh has at least until 2011 (or later if Valve follows it usual pattern for "episodic content" for half life 2). So she does have a little time to try to stretch it a little, but yea, Cyh, you don't wanna stay in one area for too long.

    I was kinda figuring that the area with the huge number of turrets (the large room and the 3 or 4 connecting corridors with turrets) might take you a little while to go through depending on how you act it out.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Actually I reckon she could have a lot of fun with that bit Nighthawk3001

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think Cyh has done a good job so far so I'm sure she'll do it perfectly.

    I think as long as you do one room each episode you're all good.

  13. Trailer for Harrison Mind coming probably tonight. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oooh! You seem to be quite good with trailers.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yayyy. New trailer time :D

    Seriously though, the BM finale trailer had me hooked like crazy.

    @Cyh
    For $30,000, I'd probably be willing to break in Valve's HQ & steal Portal 2 for you. Of course, then I'd disappear off the grid to play it myself rather than give it to you XD

    Yes, I'm that evil XD

    ReplyDelete
  16. Is it wrong for me to actually plan my daring attempt to break into Valve's HQ to steal Portal 2 ?

    Hmmm....may be a bit illegal & insane but I doubt any self-respecting gamer can remain sane after watching that Intro Demo.

    Don't act innocent, you know I'm right

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wonder what would happen if you offered Valve $30,000 to play Portal 2 for 15 minutes?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, that was cool. I need to get the Orange box and play portal 1. Or, i'll watch chell's mind as a walkthrough. But sereously?! Harry Potter?! I can't believe you watch that crap!
    But whatever. Can't wait for portal 2!

  19. They'd probably have me arrested I think...or they can surprise me & hire me as a beta tester & have me sign some kooky contract about selling them my soul for playing Portal 2.

    The scariest part is, I might actually agree to it. I know Cyh will definitely do it if given the chance :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. You know, you can start spreading a rumour that Valve used your & Krimsin's joke in Portal 2.

    You'll become almost as famous a Ross Scott :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. It costs 400,000 dollars to play Portal 2... For 12 seconds.

  22. @Street Kid: Yes, I enjoy the movies and really enjoy the books. I don't think the books are the best thing since sliced bread but they are very, very good IMO. The movies are so-so. Some are better than others, they all have some good parts, and the last few were definitely worth watching.

    The big thing I like about the 7th movies (part 1 and 2) is I think that the actors have finally matured enough in their abilities, the directors have worked out what works and what doesn't for Harry Potter movies, and the fact that they're doing it in two parts means that they're actually going to take all the details seriously, which is good since the 7th book relies so heavily on details it would fall apart without them.

    In any case, yes, I will watch HP7 when it comes out in theaters and I will enjoy it. Which is good since there doesn't look like there is going to be that many good films this year (Avatar re-release doesn't count, even to me :P ).

  23. Well, I understand. Aside from thinking that it's crap. I have moral issues with Harry Potter. Being that I am a Christian. I'm sure you understand.

    -Street Kid

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ah, yes, I still have yet to understand what the Chrisian faith has with a fictional story but that's me.

    If you desire to, please explain (peacefully) why you feel that HP is anti-Christian. It sounds like you have at least given the movies/books a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mostly because of the witchcraft. I don't want to speak for everyone but I have issues with the whole demonic, witchcraft thing. That's just me though. A lot of friends of mine like it. But a lot of my christian fellows don't.

  27. But wasn't that joke just based on the Meet The Spy video where the Soldier types 1111 as the door code? Because I figure Valve just put in a slight reference to TF2, not Barney/Shephard's Mind.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Also, if you think that "Witchcraft" as depicted in Harry Potter (Or even Witchcraft as practiced in real life) has anything to do with demons or Satanic worship or whatever, you need to get up, walk calmly into your bathroom, fill the sink with ice cold water, and dunk your head in several times in rapid succession.

  29. Krimsin... I would like to point out that you are not making an argument. You are just trying to insult me. Instead of trying to be a smart ass. Make a decent argument.

    -Street Kid

  30. Fuck, blogspot just lost my 4 paragraph comment. Meh.

    @Krimsin: Well, that joke, if I recall, was just from...something? I dunno really where that joke came from. Maybe subconsciously it was from Meet the Spy? I dunno, but I do agree that it's HIGHLY unlikely that they used our joke.

    @Krimsin(again): Please don't antagonize, this is a very touchy subject and I'd rather have a engaging, reasonable discussion than an argument. That said, I totally agree with your first point.

    @Street Kid: Yes, I agree, let's have a serious discussion here rather than an argument.

    Anyway, I do agree with Krimsin that I believe the Christian faiths persecution of Pagan religions is quite foolish. I would think that the Christian faith would have more to fear from repeating past mistakes of persecuting innocent people out of fear of "witchcraft" than from current practices of Wiccan and Pagan religions that I've found to have nothing to do with Satanisim or demonic practices.

    Anyway, that aside, I've never found anything close to demonic or Satanistic in the Harry Potter books. Heck, it seems to avoid any mention of ANY religion like they're the plague. Is it just the title witchcraft that is the problem? Would this even be an issue if it was simply the "Hogwarts school of wizardy"?

    Not trying to antagonize here, just trying to understand.

  31. I'm not trying to "persecute" you. I see where you're coming from though. And I'm not saying you'll go to hell for reading the books or watching the movies. All I'm saying is that I always saw Harry Potters "wizardry" to be a kind of dark witchcraft or magic. And, the problem I have with it isn't that the series bashes Christianity or anything. Unlike another of my hated movies, The Golden Compass. The problem is simply the dark magic thing and as a Christian I prefer to stay out of that area. Much less glorify it.

    @Krimsin And no, I wasn't saying it resembled modern day satanic worship.

    -Street Kid

    ReplyDelete
  32. Then...what are you saying? I can't think of any other aspect of Harry Potter that would conflict with Christians in any way.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think it's just the fact that the story is about witchcraft and magic.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I actually would like to take that back. It is because it resembles modern witchcraft. Maybe not in the way you were thinking but let me say again. My issue is with the black magic stuff. And that HP is marketed to small children. But mostly the Dark witchcraft. Hope that explains everything for you guys. And thank you for not being biased against Christians. Or at least I don't think you were.

  35. Well I guess the brute force version of hacking doesnt really apply to GLaDOS :/

  36. @The Street Kid
    Just because the author of a book that gets turned into a movie is an atheist doesn't mean that the book it self is against religion. Have you read the Golden Compass or did you just read the review off of a Conservative website? Just asking.
    @Ian
    For most people on the internet getting someone number is big.

  37. I understand that the plot of the books was to kill God. I know that he didn't do that in the movie cuz he didn't want the Christians bashing down his door. And also, I get info from many sources.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm with Street Kid on this one, though I have not read the book, but have read enough about it along with many of my good friends who have, and I agree that it is anti-Christian.

    Nothing wrong with that though, free speech and all.

    ReplyDelete
  39. How did this become a religious debate?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm for freedom of speech and all. But like I said, I choose not to support The Golden Compass. But, freedom of speech applies to everybody. Christians and Atheists alike.

  41. I've read the series, I never read anything about religion....
