If I Were A Core..

While searching YouTube, as you do, I stumbled upon a Portal 2 music video. I was utterly amazed at the quality and effort that is shown in these videos. The person who made these clearly loves Portal 2 and spent a long time on these. While watching at first I had to check that this wasn't an official video done by Valve, it just looks stunning.

The person who did it also put up a bunch of videos on how he made it, which I also recommend as its very interesting to anybody who is into this kind of thing. Watching it in the end though has just made me want to go and play Portal 2 again, which I may just go and do. There are also a few other videos by this guy that spoof other songs that you should check out.

Dug a little deeper and found this one.

Hopefully this isn't youtube spam, because this is awesome.

I approve.

Also, this inspired me to actually look up the lyrics to Beyonce's song (never heard it properly before), and holy shit is that song nice and sexist. Replace boy/girl with girl/boy, or straight/gay, or fucking pc gamer/console gamer, it'd be seen as not cool.

Actually, I want to hear if i were a console gamer or pc gamer.

Wait, no I don't. That'd be dumb.

I really like it when a game inspires this kind of creative reaction from the community.

That looks like a good way to get a job at Valve. It seems like they hire all their fanboys.

Not too fond of the first video the second is rad thought. Does not help that it is spoofing a actual good song.

If their fanboys are ridiculously talented, then yeah. Otherwise your comment is kind of silly.

Your post reads like you really tried to not make this Youtube spam, which I can appreciate, good job on putting the effort in.

Also, cool videos. I'll be checking the rest out now.

I thought this was a topic asking us what type of core we'd be. I'd be the Old School Weeaboo Core.

Why would you not be the space core?

@Hizang:

And that's what I am asking. If I am eligible to be the Space Core, why aren't you?

That was really good. Reminds me of how much I loved Portal 2. I think I'm going to go replay it now.
