The Geekbox: Episode 117

Postby Rydog » May 11th, 2011 @ 10:28pm

London-based listener James Gates (who is awesome, by the way) joins us for this week's episode. Portal 2 spoilers at the end -- but don't worry, we give you fair warning!

Is there a specific day this podcast comes out or is it random?

Who knows?

Let's look at the evidence:
Episode 117 - Thursday 12th May
Episode 116 - Thursday 5th May
Episode 115 - Thursday 28th April
Episode 114 - Thursday 21st April
Episode 113 - Thursday 14th April

David, it's over to you.

I hate guest stars from the UK being on the podcast (take a note of this line, it might pay off in about 4 months time).

Loved the UK sweets talk. Eclairs are great, but man there's so much other stuff you guys must be missing. Midget gems? Chocolate limes? I know you get fruit pebbles, which to you would be fruit Mentos.

Aaaanyway, Want You Gone > Still Alive. The latter was a nice little touch at the end of the game, whereas the former is a much bigger and better production that reflects Portal going from a nice little side game to a proper, full retail game. Never noticed the hints of Chell's history, though; that means there's got to be a third.

As for DW, I liked the Black Spot episode a lot, but the end made me want to edit this over it:

They weren't subtle with it but they didn't beat you over the head with it either. You had to notice some of it.

As for the portal timeline. The second time you wake up at the Beginning of the game, there's an indication that plenty of time has passed.

Doesn't it say how many days have passed or something?

"9...9...9...9... days". So, nigh-on 30 years. But yeah, I missed the kid's display, and don't understand Italian, so those two hints went by... but all the parts about who exactly was running tests made me think Chell was definitely someone special.

gladdos also says there are two other people in stasis with Chell's last name.

True, caught that one. Wonder if that's the adopters, and her parents are, well, obvious...

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is still one of my favorite films because of Kat Dennings and the fact they filmed it around my old neighborhood.

Very charming movie. Very low in Cera's Trademark awkwardness.

Justin because you were disappointed in the lack of Half Life references in Portal 2 I assume you didn't find the Borealis thing

This is almost as funny as people dissecting LOST.

I am one of the followers of Demon's Souls. I freakin' love that game and I cannot wait for Dark Souls (pre-ordered on Amazon already). The reason the game wasn't called Demon's Souls 2 is partially because Sony helped develop Demon's Souls and has a trademark claim on the name.

From Software also made the greatest online multiplayer game this generation, which is Chromehounds. Sega published it.

Haven't listened to this week's episode yet, but I feel like I should now that I'm in SF. Although only for a fewndays this time. Trying to find a place to live, the moving next month. Don't think I'll make down to the store this time, but I will have to make a special effort to go on podcast recording night sometime in the near future. They record on Monday's right?

Yep, generally Monday nights. It slips to Tuesdays from time to time, but not often.
