    And with that, I regret having bought the 360 version.

    Looks like the Multiverse isn't a total exaggeration:

    I prefer the tile of "Highly Amusing Halolz and Aperture's Ostentatious and Hysterical Workbench of pOrtal Wonder"

    Man, this economy sucks. I'm half tempted to use the multi-verse MEs to start an armada.

    okay, how many people do you think will just purposely design unwinnable levels, that either
    A)hint you to press a button to drop a cube but really drops turrets on all sides of you
    B)make a jump just too long to make no matter what, but makes you think is possible
    C)are all dark walls, with large pool of acid water in between doors, and no way across
    D)do all of the above (I would)

    Erm… one of the workers at the end… his screen is blurred. Wonder what HE was doing.

    well….it's been nice knowing the outside

  11. LinkorZelda on May 9th, 2012 8:37 am

    Troll levels everywhere.

  12. WaddleDerp on May 9th, 2012 9:16 am

    One of these days I'll create the most elaborate level, THAT NO ONE CAN SOLVE BUT ME!

    So Cave Johnson Sr worked at a Farming college?
    That wasn't in the American Midwest right?
    Because the Soldier has a few theories to propose about the appropriate locations of animals species numbering more than one animal.
    It was the single most incoherent University Paper i have ever read.

    this excites me in ways i didnt know i could be excited

    i better call those guys fixing my gaming PC and tell them i need it back ASAP!

  15. EliminatorZigma on May 9th, 2012 11:36 am

    Frack. I wish I had time to do this. Unfortunately, it'll have to wait 'till Summer. Senior finals season is a bitch.

    Cave Johnson here. You know, the lab boys have streamlined test chamber production so well that they assured me even a monkey could build them if given the tools. So I fired almost our entire staff, and replaced them with actual monkeys. And as it turns out, the monkeys' capabilities were grossly overestimated. Plus all the bananas we bought were gone within a week. So I decided that regular monkeys just won't cut it, and that I'd need some kind of… super-monkey. Smart enough to get the chambers done, but not so smart that they revolt and turn Aperture into a scene out of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    And that's where you come in. The super-monkey project didn't work out very well; in fact, a number of intelligent, radioactive monkeys are rampaging around outside my office as I record this. So now I need YOU to help me design test chambers. All of the tools will be readily available as you need them, but try to keep production costs low… we're being indicted for tax fraud in no less than eighteen states, and now we're probably gonna get slapped with some animal cruelty charges on top of that. So, uh, obviously we can't pay you, but once our financial situation improves, I'll make sure you monkey replacements get all the bananas you can eat. Sound good?

    Cave Johnson, we're done here.

    Cave Johnson, Here.

    I'm sick of you guys at Halolz thinking that you're better than everyone else. You're causing problems in the break rooms, and poor old Jenkins can't even sleep at night because he worries that he'll never be part of your group. So I've come up with a solution. Get some work done. If you gentlemen are going to say that you're some hot shit portal testing designers, then I had better see results! Actually make the lab boys cry that they never thought of these designs. I want the whole building to know that you gentlemen can achieve without having to worry about things like girlfriends, or personal lives, or even food and drink!

    And as for the impersonations of myself I keep finding on the bathroom stalls, it may have to stop. We can't have low morale because some hobo thinks that they know what I'm thinking. They can't. Hell, even I don't think I'm in my right mind sometimes. But that's because I'm not in my right mind; I'm in my backup shell for now while I have the boys fill my veins with prune juice. Takes all the antioxidants away. Great stuff. But back to the point! Stop impersonating me unless you do it well enough that the average lab boy can't even figure out that it's not me writing these things. And no, I am not a giant male genitalia like you might think I am. I'm working on that too.

    Cave Johnson. We're Done Here.
