    Yep, Portal 2 comic.

    Unfortunately, no actual link to where the comic is on-sight. At least, no link in the article.

    Despite officially being April 9 here (that was written on April 8), it apparently hasn't been released yet. Good luck refreshing every 10 minutes!

    Someone found a hidden message in some audio file or something that said something along the lines of "why the sibling rivalry"...

    5 bucks down, Chell and the guy in the comic are "siblings" of sorts, literally or metaphorically.

    Erm, I assumed it was referring to P-Body and Atlas?

    I thought that too, but I think its more for the single player... it could mean both. Who knows.

    I thought metaphorically about it to (I think about things metaphorically naturally) but I dismissed with because there wasn't any other evidence directing towards that.

    I had that and the comic.

    If they went by GMT+14 where the day first changes, then you'd get all the more people complaining that stuff comes out a day early and they should stop saying the wrong day.

    Maybe they should state a time zone then? Or a time?

    Not saying it's the wrong thing to do on their part, it just bugs me. Bugs me like seeing this. Fucking sniper.

    Second part has been up on ign. Before the site, you just had to look.

    And sword, your right, the guy isn't related, i don't think the siblings are Aperture and Blackmesa still though.

    And now that we know the guy has schitzofrenia, and Chell has above average tenacity... then yea..

    I dedicate this double post to the site, and how I hope it never gets this wonky ever again...

    The clone bit is interesting to me. If Chell is #1 test subject, then does that mean that when she dies, they send her clone in?

    If so, Rattman knew that the best way to get glados was to send the one subject who would never quit in. She'd die, sure, but straightaway a clone would be sent in. All Rattman had to do was hunker down in the chambers, and help one Chell after another through, until one got to Glados.

    EDIT: Which of course begs the question: what happens if you quit? Something that makes them not send your clone in. Either they call you a failure and move onto the next test subject, but Ratmann could just have removed all other subjects from the list in that case.

    Or, they give you the cake.

    So Rattman had to persuade Chell that Cake, parties etcetera were all wrong.

    So he started writing "The cake is a lie" and stuff.

    TL:DR Cake proved.

    What I want to know is how many times ratman went through the test. He had enough time to write all the wistful companion-cube-related poetry in that one test chamber, and then somehow aquired another companion cube by the time the events of portal 1 unfolded (as we can see he has one strapped to his back throughout the comic).
