gods and monsters


I post a lot about Portal, Hellboy/BPRD (reading order here!), robots, and monsters. And if you're into this sort of thing, feel free to check out my NSFW Portal fic The Punishment!

I am messing around with game speed using one of these cheats and oh my god

Dialogue speed is increased along with game speed. At 1.2x game speed, Wheatley sounds like a bratty teen, at 1.5 he sounds like a mouse frantically trying to be heard

At most speeds above 1, GLaDOS sounds like a little girl, but at some point she also shifts into nagging mouse companion territory

…This is playing strangely well into the rodent-based Portal AU that inexplicably struck me a few days ago (Chell as a squirrel, Wheatley as a mouse, GLaDOS as a ferret, Doug as a rat…)

lecouteaux asked: man I have been enjoying your Portal 2 liveblogging! How did you get third person view?

I’m glad you liked it! I used a few different commands while messing around in the game. Here’s a little explanation:

  • Call up the command box using the tilde (~) button (should be beside the number one on your keyboard)
  • Turn on cheats by typing in sv_cheats 1
  • Enter any cheat code you’re interested in (god = invincibility, noclip = flying through walls, thirdperson = third person view, firstperson = first person view, etc.)

Several other interesting cheats here! Changing the speed of the game, increasing max propulsion gel speed, and increasing/decreasing gravity are all fun too!

I can’t believe I just played that whole game and liveblogged it, wow, what a way to use my time… at least I got a good refresher on the game and reminded myself of the many reasons why I love it so much, as well as doing a bit of research for various writing projects.

And it was a lot of fun! Thanks to those who egged me on, and apologies to those who begged me to stop giving them emotions.

Good night!

Had to add this here at the end. I flipped the image so he’s right-side up, since he ends up rotating upside down over the course of his apology.

The ending of Portal 2 made me cry the first time I saw it, and I still tear up when I see it today. I don’t think I’m ever not going to get chills from this image.
I’m glad I got a chance to play through it again and relive all of those little moments I loved the first time around. It still means as much to me now as it ever has, if not more for the community that has sprung up around the game and made so many wonderful things as a result of it. I can’t think of any better or more eloquent way to say it than this:
I love this game.
