    yeah, i've played the bonus missions. if possible, i want to try to make some of my own maps. maybe outdoors, but i don't want to work with the physics in this game.

    i don't know, they had alot of tight jumps. I think to get the same things, I would use alot of trial/error

    I completed it in one sitting :)

    It was fun, and i loved the song at the end haha

    But.. I still mourn the loss of my weighted companion cube :cry:

    did u then go thru the commentary mode?

    It was pretty nice, the AI voice was done by a female who appears to be pretty good at mimicing a synthetic voice. I still laugh at the end song tho :laugh:

    I guess the Aperture science reasearch labs didnt F*** up as badly as Black Mesa did lol

    What I am really waiting for is for this game to go multiplayer and/or a new map pack with a map maker, that would make my day. I ALso believe they could have/should have added more easter eggs in the game some how, I think that would add to the intrest,

    I did find many little hidden things, and liked the kinda pissed off presentation about how Aperture science got pwned in the research grants field against Bleck Mesa

    I love Portal...shame it was so short...A friend and I actually completed it in just under an hour on a speed-run...

    The Bonus maps...well I'm stuck on the last one...can't figure it out at all.

    I would have loved to know exactly where everyone went, and why they forgot her.

    Huh... you have completed the game?
    ::SPOILER WARING:: ---> possibly :p










    Well, apart from the neurotoxin that killed everyone, im guessing that the cock up at black mesa screwed the world over so no 1 had time for poor lill Aperture science's biological Disc Opporating System. just my thoughts, aint played HL2 episode 2 yet so couldnt tell u if it could factor into it

    well, I knew about the toxin, but they disabled that, which the robot explains to you, so they should have been around. or left bodies. and in hl2, i've noticed what they said about aperture, but they still don't explain why they left here there. I'm wondering i there's going to be some kind of crazy guest-star in hl2 >.> wonder how a headcrab likes falling through walls?

    no it wasn't. they show you the cake and put out the candle at the end :p

    I believe the robotic AI at the end stated that it flooded the complex with toxin, to prevent itsself from further releasing toxin? since there would no longer be any living to kill, , not certain about the bodies, maybe it had robots remove em, but its certainly plausable that the events in HL2 caused no1 else to come to Apertures aid
