More on the Portal ARG

The Portal patch released earlier apparently alters the game's ending. There's a clip on the YouTube showing what's new, which may help figure clarify what Valve has up their sleeves here. Or not. Thanks Ben.

You're about 3 days late to the party, jimnms.

Sounds like "Thank you for assuming the party escort submission position"

Which was also an achievement...

As much as I didn't care for the HL Episodes, the idea of another Portal REALLY gets me excited. Hell, with these two patches, I'm now going back for my 3rd or 4th playthrough, and I can't think of the last game I played through 4 times (maybe the original Quake?)...

Please no! This would surely end up like George Lucas and Star Wars. In fact, HL2 and its episodes are already like the SW prequels to me when compared to the original HL or the original SW trilogy...

I hope that is not the voice they are using for a new ai adversary. It does not hold a candle to GLaDOS imo.

Has anyone figured out what is being broadcast in Morse code on the radios?

EDIT: Shacknews has posted some of the Morse code translations:
Interior transmission active
External data line active
Message digest active
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
System data dump active
User back up active
Password back up active
Beep beep beep beep lol
According to the post, there are 26 new sound files containing around 17 minutes of Morse code.

IIRC GlaDOS first says something to that effect when you escape being torched.

This is easily the best viral marketing ever.

Not sure what it's saying.. something like "thank you for [assuming?]... position". This is a good way to build hype for whatever it is they're planning. I also started another play through of Portal. Unfortunately it's probably a year or two away. I'll dream that it's not though. And in my dream, it will be HL3. Oh yes. Come to me, Alyx.

I love the revisionist history.

I wouldn't be mad if Valve went through more of their games and changed things.

I guess for the purists out there they could throw a toggle somewhere.
