Portal 2 now playing in GamesRadar's brand new and quite amazing Musical Screenshot Gallery

Prepare yourself. We have revolutionised the way you look at screenshots. Please say "hello" to our brand new and quite amazing Musical Screenshot Gallery. Don't be scared. The concept is simple. It's just like a slideshow, which means you don't have to bother clicking your mouse every time you want to look at a new screenshot. Just sit on your ass and let technology do the work. And the most magical bit is that it plays music at the same time.

For the Musical Screenshot Gallery's exciting debut show we've chosen screenshots from Portal 2. It's coming out next month and there can be no better way to get excited for the sequel to one of gaming's greatest triumphs than by looking at some static images of it while simultaneously enjoying bespoke computer music in your ears. On with the show!

Big shout to GamesRadar's frequent supplier of intangible chip tune goodness The Disco King for making the Musical Screenshot Gallery's music. We love you.

If this visually and aurally exciting glimpse of Portal 2 has aroused you, why not indulge yourself with a visit to our Portal 2 mega-page where we've got, like, loads more stuff about Portal 2.

And if there are any music-type folk that would like to provide a two-minute tune for use in a future MSG, feel free to email us at

Please let us know in the comments if you enjoyed the Musical Screenshot Gallery. Either way, you'll be seeing it again soon.

    I think the music created a great atmosphere, changing it from dry S-shots to a more Gamesradar kind of mood(and this fits Portal quite well, I find)

    I like this idea, I usually never check out screenshots because they aren't that interesting but this makes it more interesting

    I love the concept of a musical screenshot slideshow. I generally stick to trailers because I can't stand clicking my way around to find screenshots. Having them all in one place that plays automatically is great. Having music is also a good thought, but I agree with some of the comments in that the music was not too good or at least not too good for the subject matter.

    Awesome stuff guys. This needs to keep happening.

    I thought the music was awesome and really fit the buddy cop cutesy feel of the bots. Loved the pics too....but I really thought that was Cundy in black face for a second.
  • oddprophet - March 31, 2011 3:11 p.m.

    By all means I didn't hate the music, I loved it...But it really hurt to listen to...

    I loved the music so much I nearly forgot to watch the pics! The game's looking great BTW.
  • BeerBaron - March 31, 2011 12:39 p.m.

    Loved the music!

    It was really great until the screenshot that said flash player has crashed send error report, the music stopped and it was all downhill from there.

    I loved this feature and also the music, however I think that the music wasn't a good fit. Maybe something more soothing? Or at least not as 'chip-tuney'. Great feature all round really though.

    Oh wait, the Disco King, I see. Wow!

    Matradee Cundorama, who, what, where, produces the music you use here? It's like a gameboy is having sex with my ears. FYI - That's a good thing. Isaac Fenix can knob off!

    Alright, I like the concept of the musical screenshot gallery, but the music is all wrong. I'm glad to see that you are aware of how ear-damaging the "music" was, and are attempting to rectify this error. The music was very distracting and did not contribute to the mood of the screenshots shown. Overall the gallery was well put together, the timing between each screenshot was not too long, nor too short; also the video was not absurdly long. Overall: B-
