New Portal Easter Eggs

Everyone in the community knows about this stuff by now. The new radios, the hidden messages, the decoded sound files, the BBS that gives these images etc.

Decoded Aperture Images

Just interesting to note that the copyright on the GLaDOS software apparently runs from 1973-1997. The date for the ludicrous protocols for selecting Enrichment Center test subjects is back in 1976.

Wonder how much of this should be taken seriously.

Re: New Portal Easter Eggs

Yeah, this stuff is rad!
This is way too much work for a simple easter-egg, it must be something more important.

Yup. Really hope it lead to say...Portal 2. smile

or Half-Life 2.3 with the Borealis, at least.

Re: New Portal Easter Eggs

Looks like they changed the end of Portal.
Funny enough, it now looks a bit like Portal: Prelude big_smile

Re: New Portal Easter Eggs

I was thinking the same thing last night when I was playing the new Portal!

Not quite the same thing, but the similarities were pretty striking. I'm happy that it appears we will see more of Chell in either Portal 2 or Half-Life 2.3.

Was a bit afraid she'd be forgotten. I know that someone had Valve had stated Chell's character had actually been developed prior to Portal for something else and when Portal came along she fit very well with the Aperture Science angle, so I'm hoping for a good story there coming up. smile

YAY for more Portal stuff!!!

If anyone has Google Wave, I started a sub-wave to the Portal wave to talk about the update and share conspiracy theories at https://wave.google.com/wave/#restored: … hMHyRCAA.4

If anyone needs a wave invite so they can contribute, e-mail me.  You can also view a static version (without signing into wave) at http://antimatter15.com/misc/read/?goog … +6hMHyRCAA

Re: New Portal Easter Eggs

Not actually an easter egg, but on 3rd March of 2010 VALVe made a new Portal ending, so it might be worth playing Portal again wink

The changed ending is actually pretty minor. The ending all but confirms Chell's participation in the next story, though.

On the other hand, Portal 2 has now been confirmed, likely for December of this year. Will have a single player campaign AND a multiplayer co-op campaign that will feature a different story and two new playable characters.

Yup. 26 Radios to find. 23 of them are within the 19 Test Chambers. Only a few of them are difficult to find if you are observant. Keep the volume up and listen for Still Alive being played.  Nothing happens if you find their transmission points except that you get to hear the Morse Code files that play over the radios, which is kind of creepy.

The released info on Portal 2 is completely unexpected. I'm not going to spoil it since you can get it at Wikipedia if nothing else, but needless to say it is different.
