Okay, that's it. I'll never ever go on Kotaku again (People kept talking about how shitty Kotaku was but I stilI sometimes went there for news stuff etc.).
 
So, just today I got Portal 2 in the mail and started playing it. Really enjoyed it so far.
 
And now this (link has spoiler, obviously):
 
http://kotaku.com/5807085/portal-2s-want-you-gone-sounds-even-better-when-sung-by-electric-guitar
 
...an article about a song in Portal 2 and that idiot Fahey spoils part of the ending without any warning and in doing that basically runined a good chunk of story for me. I'm effin mad.
 
edit: turns out they apparently didn't spoil the amazing part, lucky me

I hate it when that happens.

#3 Posted by Simplexity (1382 posts) -

I dunno if I would call that a spoiler, unless they changed the article or something.

#4 Posted by omghisam (287 posts) -

there's a song at the end of Portal 2. </spoiler>

A tad dramatic. Extremely little about the story seems to have been spoiled in that article.

hate it when it happends Sucks  
 
some one on youtube spoiled all the big cathrine plot points in the comments of one of the trailers 

#10 Posted by Red (5995 posts) -

Honestly, upon seeing it was about Portal 2, you should've just ignored it--the title spoiler is obscure enough to not mean anything to anyone who hasn't beaten the game. Even then, the spoiler you are speaking about still lacks context. 
However, why Kotaku needs to post an article about someone covering video game music with an electric guitar is completely beyond me, especially when accompanied by 7 sentences of emotionless dribble. I guess that's enough reason to not go to Kotaku.

dude the cake is a lie there is no spoon i just saved you like six hours

#12 Posted by DeeGee (2123 posts) -

These are the risks you take when you use the internet. The game is a month old, not everybody is going to keep the ending secret, and the throw away line really doesn't reveal much about the ending. I thought they'd revealed the ACTUAL ending, which would give you a reason to be angry, because it's so great. But they didn't.
 
Basically, don't read Portal news articles if you haven't played the game.

#14 Posted by AlisterCat (5559 posts) -

It is a spoiler in the sense that you know Glados wants you gone... but so what? She's always wanted you gone. I see how it might be a spoiler but trust me. It's the most minor spoiler of the crazy things that happen in that game.

While that sucks a little bit, you aren't going to be disappointed by the ending just by knowing that.
#16 Posted by CptBedlam (4450 posts) -
Okay,  you guys telling me that this has only little to do with the ending is good news.

It's just a last straw I needed to stay away from Kotaku...

She sung a song at the en of Portal 1. It's not a spoiler. I thought you meant it ruined it where the portal changed and you ended up next to G-Man. 
 
#18 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1744 posts) -
@CptBedlam:  A song from GlaDOS at the end of the game was to be expected since the original game ended with one as well. The song is during the credits and has very, very little to do with the story, nor is it the reason that the actual ending to the game is so goddamn amazing. Nothing major has been spoiled for you, so I wouldn't worry about it. But seeing as the game has been out for awhile now, I would steer clear of Internet forums about Portal just to be on the safe side until you finish the game.
#19 Posted by Swoxx (2998 posts) -

Of course there's gonna be a new song. someone "spoiled" it for me with their Alive vs want you gone" thread title. I was expecting there to be a new song. Listening to it though might be dumb

#20 Posted by CptBedlam (4450 posts) -
@Metal_Mills: I better leave this thread now. %)
#21 Posted by Lobster_Ear (285 posts) -

If you've played even half an hour of the first game that wouldn't be a spoiler. Chill the fuck out.

#22 Posted by Bocam (3742 posts) -

Hey did you know... Wheatley is the final boss?

#23 Posted by Rebirth1337 (795 posts) -

I saw this review on Youtube that played the whole ending but sped up. Safe to say I'll never buy Portal 2 now.

Yes, leave this thread and go play Portal 2 :o
 
Also, like others have said, what you saw spoiled nothing. I saw the name of the song title just like you did, but it really doesn't spoil anything. There are a lot more interesting things in the game than the title of that song :P
#25 Posted by Mopsical (26 posts) -

There are so many other, bigger things about the storyline you could be spoiled by other than that. That isn't a spoiler at all. (I actually went into the ending knowing that title, still the best / most surprising ending of a game I've ever played).  
 
P.S. Kotaku ... lol

#26 Posted by CrimsonNoir (401 posts) -

not much of a spoiler at all, who wasn't expecting a new ending song? one of the things portal 1 was famous for.

It's a spoiler because there is a song and GLaDOS doesn't like you? I'm not really sure how that ruins "a good chunk of story" for you. Would I be spoiling the story if I told you that you get both orange and  SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content.   portals? 
 
The game has been out long enough that most people have finished it. If you're that anal about spoilers why would you even click on a story about portal when you know that there is a good possibility that any new news about the game will probably contain some type of spoiler?

Haha how embarrassing, the author promoted your comment to the front of the comment list. That is far from being a spoiler amigo, better luck next time.

Not really any spoilers there, so.... 
 
Also, if you haven't finished Portal 2 by now, that's your own issue. You had until April 24th at most. Come on man, get your life in order.

#36 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

That article spoiled nothing, in fact articles on this site, or any other site about games technically spoil things about games if they give away any plot details. Just depends how much you care about not knowing anything about the plot before playing it.
 
I'll be avoiding all Mass Effect 3 related news and videos till I play it, I know that much.

They didn't spoil WHY she wants you gone. Lets put it that way. ; ) 
 
Plus, there are SO many great and funny moments (and oh shit moments) in the game, the ending is actually the dumbest. Not only because its over, but because I thought the ending was just dumb. And I mean the absolute last scene (the song)
#42 Edited by lavaman77 (567 posts) -

The behavior that the editors displayed in the comments is even more disgusting.  Look at the amount of ass kissing from the commenters even after the editor's big fuck up and after their stupid and chlidish replies to the OP by the so called "Editors", who the hell would lower themselves to the point of being less than a tool? geez what a messed up community. the ironic part is that the article was probably at the front page thanks to Gawker's crappy redesign so a lot of people got spoiled without warning.

Sigh, KNOWING that she survives and lets you go is a spoiler in itself, is it really that hard to understand?
#43 Posted by DeF (4887 posts) -

this really doesn't spoil anything.
 
that's like saying "the endboss of game X wants to kill you and does not like that you're resisting. also, end credits!"
 
 (real) spoilers are bad but sometimes people just need to chill out...

I don't see how the title of the end credits song spoils anything. You sir are an over-reacting juvenile.

What? Anyone who saw trailers for Portal 2 knew that GLaDOS makes a return. Look at the very first trailer from E3 last year. It's not like Valve was keeping it a big secret.
