Portal 2 is releasing on the same day as Skynet's activation

#1 Edited by Geno (6477 posts) -

Thought this was an interesting tidbit to share. According to Terminator Wiki,  


"April 21, 2011. Judgment Day. Kyle Reese and Derek Reese witness the launch of U.S. missiles while playing ball in their yard. 

As a result of temporal interference by Sarah Connor, her son John, Miles Dyson, and the T-800 destroying Cyberdyne headquarters and all backups of the research in 1995, the date for Judgment day is moved back to here. Skynet is destined to go online a few days earlier on April 19, 2011 at 20:11."

Portal 2 is releasing on April 19, 2011.

That's neat... if you like T3. It was OK, I guess.

It's fake.  The thread on Valve's forums debunked it.

Every thread is a 'Jingle all the way' thread.

Probably a coincidence. I don't see Valve going that far out of their way to make a big Terminator reference, it just doesn't seem to fit with the world of Portal. On a related note, who is your daddy and what does he do?

So this is what Valve was doing with all that Episode 3 development time, and all that Steam money.


Man we're screwed, and it's all you people buying hats' faults!

@Geno: No, judgement day is August 29th, 1997.  Too late brosky.

My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father; prepare to die.

I saw that you misquoted The Princess Bride, so I fixed it for you.

I'm not surprised that Valve would do this on purpose.@Azteck said:

Mortal Kombat comes out on the same day and it has Kano in it. Everyone knows Kano is really a Terminator. Coincidence? No fucking way!

Also, I saw OPs message on reddit.

All this proves is that Skynet was plagued with numerous delays. Other than that, that Scanners picture on the previous page kinda sums up my thoughts.

You guys are obviousley new to the internet for if you were inter web veterans such as my self you would know that this was part of the crazy valve ARG thing and if you watch Terminater 2 in reverse you will get a new ciper and potato hat.....
