Portal 2 Co-op | Full Access Playthrough

Chris, Tyler and Lizzie are joined by PC Gamer’s Evan Lahti and Anthony Valva for a SPOILER-FREE look at Portal’s brain-wrenching co-op mode.

Get this straight, readers: Several of us in the office have played through Portal 2 several times already. I personally played through myself and watched others play through the game multiple times. Yet there’s still shit in Portal 2 that confounds me each and every time I encounter it! I guess what I’m saying is: We’re not dummies! Portal just requires a unique line of thinking that sort of defies traditional muscle memory, or whatever, and often feels altogether new each time you approach certain puzzles. Infinitely more so while trying to talk and convey information at the same time, you judgemental jerks.

Above: A highlight in the video above is Evan murdering Anthony with a door for no good reason

Obviously, I’m trying to justify why we’re playing like shit in the video above, but I’m also trying to express that you can rest easy watching us play through the beginning of Portal 2’s co-op since I can almost guarantee it will not taint your personal experience in any way. Can I go now?!

    @pocotron, I can understand why u were disappointed due to hype since the main reason it was hyped was because it was brand new out of no where, so very understandable.. but, I gotta say I love you GR, chris and lizzie and I bet I'd love the pc guys as well but that video had me back seat SCREAMING at my computer, saying " OMG YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG FUCKING WAY." srry if I hurt anyones pride a wee bit

    I hate wording things wrong, it always gives the wrong impression.

    Hey, this is probably just my computer, but I'm not getting any sound. Anyone else? ReCaptcha: aigniedu absolute Just seemed kinda epic to me :D
  • Pocotron - April 20, 2011 7:49 p.m.

    Ok, so I worded that wrong. I didn't dislike Portal because of the hype. I didn't like Portal because the hype heightened my expectations and it was, in my honest opinion, not up to par. I found it boring and dull. But I like Portal 2 better so far! Thanks for converting me GR.

    I can't wait until I can go buy this game. Until then I guess I'll allow myself to watch co-op, no campaign stuff though. Also I thought it was kinda funny that the one PC Gamer's name was Valva.
  • philipshaw - April 20, 2011 2:54 p.m.

    I can't wait for this, great FAP. Also had to lol at Chris for dying at a tutorial puzzle
  • austincharlesbond - April 20, 2011 7:51 a.m.

    I still don't know how the fuck Portal got greatest game ever. Portal 2 looks good though.
  • FreedomPhantom - April 20, 2011 4:39 a.m.

    I don't even know why I'm even watching these videos because I have been playing this game since about midnight last night. To all of those doubters, this will probably be the best game of the year... or atleast the most memorable/ one I can come back to again and again. Last night was the first midnight release I went to! I love portal!

    Huh, it's weird. I really dislike people that don't like games because of hype, because it isn't indie enough, or just too popular and mainstream. It's only weird because I find it's okay to like the mainstream stuff or dislike it, if it's for the right reasons, like things in the game that are annoying. Such as I dislike greatly that with such a great game as Gears of War 2, there are still glitches.
  • jayajaya415 - April 20, 2011 2:30 a.m.

    I am so confused. When can I get this for the PS3 in the US?
  • Yeager1122 - April 20, 2011 1:16 a.m.

    Yay Portal 2 a game i might possibly maybe buy!
  • juicenpancakes - April 20, 2011 12:50 a.m.

    @Lemurian: If that is true, I thank you for completely ruining the game that I have been waiting for a year to get my hands on. I will call upon the internet to rain hell upon you if that is true.
  • garfunkling - April 20, 2011 12:13 a.m.

    WHOOOO! Faps ahoy! This is one of the few portal 2 things im allowing myself to see.

    The games brilliant and kept me enthralled for hours. However I did notice that with co-op it's best to play with freinds as you can eaaily be paired with ass-holes that will kill you over and over, or just refuse to play at all.
  • Pocotron - April 19, 2011 9:09 p.m.

    I didn't like the first Portal because of all the hype. (And because it was on the PS3) It was a fine game but I found it boring. I like the concept and everything, just not the game. I was just wondering if this game brought more to the table.
  • GamesRadarChrisAntista - April 19, 2011 8:59 p.m.

    @Pocotron Wow... you didn't like the first Portal? So you're the one! Yeah, then by all means, steer clear of one of the greatest games of the year.
  • Pocotron - April 19, 2011 8:54 p.m.

    Convince me to buy this game GR! CONVINCE ME!!! I didn't like the first one but I'm really on the fence with the sequel.
  • AngryScotsman - April 19, 2011 8:52 p.m.

    I am this close to having the game spoiled. I'll watch this because I trust yon folk to be telling the truth when you say it's spoiler free. Then I'm going into a dark zone until Thursday.
