Posted by Zaccheus

Watching Portal is tough when you know the Solution.

@Zaccheus: Indeed.

I've been watching this to pass the time till the iPhone preorders start. It did not help pass the time like I hoped it would

Posted by Cook66

I can't watch this. :( It's just painful.

Posted by joshthebear

Makes my head hurt watching. Just brutal.

The best part of portal 2 is getting so fixated on gels that you forget you can juts, you know? Portal.

That happened to me twice with the single player where I had messed around with light bridges and gels and shit for so long that I forgot I could just go through a portal. Took me like 10 minutes to realize that. I don't think I have ever felt that dumb. It was great.

Watching other people play Portal is just painful full stop.

The Saltiest Chat ever for this TNT... Best TNT ever in my eyes. Because this is how I see a majority of people play Portal.

Hey, at least it isn't Brad playing! :D

Posted by chikin_n_rofls

Heh, this was an interesting experience, for sure.

Posted by Clubvodka

So frustrating. I haven't even played the DLC but I'm staring at the solution!

Posted by Osaladin

Curse my puzzle solving mind! This was hard to watch lol, but still entertaining.

Posted by bkbroiler

Just played a bunch of Portal co-op and we got stuck forever at perhaps the easiest puzzle ever (overthought it). So I feel for these guys playing in front of thousands.

I'm at 1:12 and I've found the key to enjoying this experience is to barely watch the video. It's frustrating to watch them run around and not experiment with the things I noticed whenever I caught on to the key aspects of the puzzles before they did. I find it's worse than when you know the exact solution.

Posted by SpencerBoltz

This is infuriating.

Edited by Arx

That was the single most frustrating video to watch. Ever. Never again will I watch someone else play Portal.

Posted by dr_mantas

I haven't watched yet, but it can't be more infuriating than this video.

only the 360 version? im truly shocked giantbomb favors the 360 even when the ps3 version is by far the better version of the two....

Posted by twillfast

Uuuuugh. At 41:55 I was like: "Yes... YEEESSS!" *slow clap*

It really is frustrating to watch, but kind of funny.

How so?

Posted by LassieME

So hard to watch, I can't take it anymore.

Posted by theveej

wow u guys suck at this game..... but to be fair you guys have played a shit ton of different video games since portal 2. You need to remember all of the portal set ups and rules of engagement again and I can see how that can be hard for someone playing a zillion different games

still ryan and patrick actually seem like the smart ones, so I expected more.... I already got my protal fix with portal 2, don't even care about dlc or anything else. Can't play that game purely based on game-play for too long without getting any good story context..... after a while it gets too boring, repetitive and easy

Cool baby was distracting me.

They have mentioned before that it is easier to record/stream video on the 360 as compared to PS3. I'm not sure how much I believe that reason, but it seems a dumb thing to lie about.

  • People complaining how thay play.
  • People complaining what platform they play on.
  • People complaining who's playing.

Yep, comments still look the same. Don't know why I even bother reading through them anymore. And I'm sure someone will point out that I'm complaining as well.

Posted by eccentrix

I can't wait to watch this in a few months when my co-op partner finally spends enough time online.

Its sad, but in general I cant stand my fellow Bombers.

Bah-bah-boo!

Oh wait, we're getting a little bit ahead of ourselves here.

Great work guys. I hope I see more stuff like this.

Drew/Vinny was killin it.

Posted by PhilipDuck

They needed Vinny, he always seems to be good at guiding them through puzzles. Is frustrating to watch when you know the solution but still it's TNT!!

Posted by selfconfessedcynic

Probably my favorite TNT outside of the horde mode stuff.

@Krelle: Have you read the comments on the Catherine review? They alone almost made me drop my subscription for the second year. I will say that the comments on Members Only content is generally better, although the occasional GameFAQs-esque thread can still arise.

The only thing that is tough for me to watch is seeing someone try and do something where I know the solution and they dance around it for a few minutes, it's just a thing like listening to someone say something untrue then ask if it's true and have no way to tell them what's up lol. This first puzzle gave me weird feelings of anxiety and I had to take a break, I'll make some calming soup or something and watch the rest later :)

Posted by Dany

This looks like this would be hard to watch. Either you've finished the puzzles beforehand or you see the solutio before they do,

This happens right?

Posted by freakin9

Ive always thought Portal was a game that without the comedy would be lame because all the puzzles are too straight forward. Well Ryan and Patrick have made a monkey out of me, apparently to most people they aren't straight forward, now I get the appeal, heh.

Posted by TokyoShoe

I gotta say, there was some real vitriol getting spat about in the chat during this event. It is still impressive how nasty folks can be when they are not getting their way during a TNT.

Posted by Solskugga

most frustrating thing to watch EVER!!!

Edited by CaLe

Even when I know the solution I don't find it annoying at all to watch others try to figure out. I dunno what is wrong with some you people.. maybe anger issues?

Posted by mpgeist

I watched this whole TNT and I regret doing so. Yes the chat went overboard, but they have a right to complain about it if they don't like it. As for me, lesson learned, I won't watch another extended look at a puzzle game on Giant Bomb. GLHB

Same. People just need to chill the fuck out.

I was able to watch and chat during the live Load Your Last Save: Full Spectrum Warrior. It was noon on a weekday. Subscribers only.

Even with a weird and kind of bad choice for that particular segment, chat was refreshingly cheerful.

Posted by Baal_Sagoth

Hehe, took me a while to get into this but it turned out to be pretty fun after getting used to the pacing.
