Portal 2 Video: Boots

"Good work, boots."



Perhaps related to the preceding news, Portal 2 is now available for pre-load. Predictably, people that pre-ordered can prepare for Portal 2, pre-release.

By the way, anyone else notice the sphere in the blue portal here:

That I can't see in the actual room, and then the creepy chuckle immediately afterwards?

You mean the equipment vent that's probably obscured and on the roof somewhere?

The numbers displayed in the part where she falls to her death, when you perform an XOR with 236 (0xEC) and convert it to ASCII characters, reads:
"I've located enough test subjects to bypass the defense grid. Now I can see why they worked so hard to protect everyone's eyes from the "art" inside. Fortunately, the initiative has also given me just enough power to activate the Post-Prelude Pre-Reboot Multi-Chamber Collaboration Recruitment Protocol. I am watching, and your efforts will not go unrewarded. Stand by."

This ARG is killing me.
