    Edit: Reports being confirmed of the radios around the test chambers playing morse code whenever you pick them up and standing on the red button.

    Edit 2: The sound clips are called 'dinosaur#'?

    Yeah I've started getting the achievement, when you get the radio into the destruction area it makes a whole "raaarggh" sound. Quite cool really, adds a bit more challenge to the old puzzles (a bit like gnome chompsky). I want to see where this leads so I'm off...

    (Hopefully hinting at a Torok inspired Portal 2 thing)

    (Also Dinosaur.wav is one of the default sounds for some program or another (can't remember))

    Edit: And it's not necercerilly near a red button

    There was also the addition of a male-sounding GLaDOS voice for the 'Assuming party escort' line

    This is really freaking me out

    Soon they're going to change the Apeture Science Droid Testing Facility to more properly test prospective droids to newer standards set forth by the Apeture Science Droid Testing Facility Testing Standards Division.

    I'm so stuck on the 17th... I can possibly get in but I don't think I'll be coming out again.

    This is why we unconditionally hand out money to Valve without question.

    There's 101+ pages on that.
    Please sum it up of what this update really means.

    Here's a summary on the last page, I was idly flicking though when I saw it.

    I must say, this is amazing work and complexity, it has been speculated that this is the work of the creater of Minerva, a mod for half life 2, who has since been hired by Valve and is well known for his puzzle skills.

    Anyways, I'll leave that for the forums, there's the summary.

    EDIT: In a few hours they have outdone our longest thread :p
