Did anybody else know the Portal 2 robots were named Atlas and P-body? I certainly didn’t get the memo, not that it adds anything to their happy frolicking in this first Portal 2 TV ad, especially since the only people who remember the first Portal character’s name are the ones still making mendacious cake jokes.
Anyway, at first it all seems downright tame and sterilized Pixar-style fun and the robotic squeals certainly don’t help any. It just takes one line from a creepily enthusiastic GlaDOS, however, to give me the howling fantods all over again.
Not to mention that if Valve pull that companion cube business one more time I’m pausing the game right there, quitting and starting work on a mod that sees the companion cube visit you with two more tiny companion cubes in tow when the game ends. Enjoy your glimpse of Portal 2 below.Filed Under: Gaming News, Technology News
