Weekend Confirmed Episode 59

By Garnett Lee, May 06, 2011 11:00am PDT

By popular request, Weekend Confirmed takes on all of Portal 2 in the opening segment. Though the conversation covers much of the game in feel and concept, there are spoilers. So for those wanting to avoid them, skip forward to the start of the second segment at the 32 minute mark. And there's still plenty of great stuff to come from there like Child of Eden, Outland, Thor, our new "knockout" game, how Sony could tackle E3, the top news stories of the week, and Finishing Moves to top it all off.

Adam K dropped some amazing progressive house on this week with "Wake Up (Morgan Page Remix)." It's one of four remixes you can checkout on his Hotbox Digital site (and I strongly recommend you do, particularly the Adam K and Soha version). Today's track can be purchased from both iTunes and Beatport. For more from the awesome Adam K check out his official site and Facebook page and Hotbox Digital.

  • Some of the complaints in the Portal 2 discussion could be easily answered by reading the text in-game. Aside from some really funny signage around the Aperture Laboratories, there are some good story clues. There may be some that are harder to see since you don't have a flashlight in your inventory, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem. Some key areas where one should read text are at the Bring your Daughter to Work Day science fair and the 1952 Aperture Laboratories waiting lobby trophy display.

    One other key information that was actually mixed up by Jeff was regarding the elevators in Portal 2. They're not going up in the first part; they're going DOWN. This was pretty jarring for me when playing through the first few parts of the original Portal 1 test chambers, as I had remembered that the elevators went UP in the first Portal (you could tell by the direction of the light glares). The elevators go down in the first half, and then you have to ascend for the second half. Very symbolic.
