Portal 2 Wheatley Trailer

Valve has issued a new trailer from Portal 2 highlighting the role of Stephen Merchant as "kindly British robot Wheatley" in the platformer sequel. The clip features some behind-the-scenes exploration at Aperture Labs and friendly reunion with GLaDOS, accompanied by Wheatley, his dulcet tones, and his not-fatal flashlight. Here are some new Portal 2 screenshots, and here's the embedded version of the clip.

Stephen Merchant is definitely a better fit for the role. This game is going to be awesome, though I'm not sure if it will be better overall - the humour seems a bit more overt, a bit more deliberate.

Where was Wheatley in Doom3?

"I say sir look another one of those closets, & another here also."


Yes that scene was a little reminiscent of Doom 3, with a little Clone Wars mixed in with the "machines making machines" bit. This is definitely going to be 2011's GotY.

Is it just me, or do they have a different voice actor? Something about this trailer just doesn't feel the same as I remember.

It is, I believe when the first trailer was released they mentioned the voice was done by one of their employees. First guy was a little more cockney or something, actually I preferred it. I think the DON'T PANIC bit is new as well, an homage to Hitchhiker's I assume.

As much as I loved the first one, this one just seems all that much better - even more so for just being around the corner...

Shaky cam, but longer and better.

Easily one of the best/most original games ever. Portal alone made the Orange box worth the buy.

Wheatley's brute-force attack didn't work...

That's because he had a crappy rainbow table.
