Can't wait for Portal 2 to pop through my letterbox next Friday ... had to install the first game this week just to get my fix.


So want one of those turrets as well!

How exciting!  I'm not really a fan of gaming room decorations, but I must say that Valve keeps it classy.  A lot of those pieces are thupa fly!  Enticing me to get some super collectable '90's video game stuff to deck out one of the rooms in my crib.

They also seem like really funny/cool guys.  Enjoyable stuff.

Aw man, I'm a little disappointed with this video. That's ok though, I'm sure Ryan saw a lot of stuff that isn't allowed to be shown to the general public.

Great idea, showing us the offices!

I'm afraid to watch any Portal 2 videos because I don't want no spoilers before the game ships, but this one's great too.

Quality, as expected, thank you Ryan and crew. :)
BTW this is exactly the kind of stuff NO other online gaming site will show.
Actual exciting stuff instead of "developer walkthroughs" where they spit their marketing game

I don't know why I was expecting to see a room with a real portal gun, that logo and all those things at the beginning were awesome!

If you look closely one of those knives has a stamp printed on it that if you mirror it and put it through a hex editor and then blow the code through a version 1.037 of Team Fortress Classic then you get a console command that you can use in Portal 2 which gives you 1 letter towards a website address which gives the date for Half-Life 3. I'm sure of it.

Actually I think that is the room they are developing Episode 3 in. Now we know why it's not coming out anytime soon.
