Not sure the two situations are exactly equal here.

No, they are. Led Zeppelin intentionally wrote the lyrics and played the type of music they wanted, that doesn't change the fact that people who think there is a secret message to Satan when you play it backwards are experiencing pareidolia.

I understand pareidolia but typically websites aren't naturally occuring or chaotic. Especially websites involved in a marketing campaign where you're supposed to notice every single detail, by a company that knows how subtlety works.

Y'know, you might be right, I don't feel strongly about it either way. All I'm saying is that we aren't looking at a piece of burned toast here, unless you think all toast is cooked on a Jesus-shaped pan.

It would be so awesome to find Christopher Walken trapped in Aperture Science Laboratories.

Companion Cube should be voiced by Christopher Walken.

I agree, but I also know how nerds work, and there have already been about a couple dozen theories on this ARG (forget about the weird theories people had about the original Portal) over the past weekend alone that have been proven to be completely without merit. Connections have been made that aren't even there many times already. Valve have never been nearly as subtle in most of the things they do in hindsight.

That said, I'ld be happy to be wrong.

Since we won't, this will have to do.

Okay, this part of the ARG is pretty cool.

I've no problem with gay guys, but lesbians are just competition man

EDIT: Whoops, accidentally quoted a six-week old post.

I was tempted by the Best Buy deal, but then I realized I'd waste $15 in gas to save... $5 over the Steam two-pack price. Anyone up for a last-minute two-pack from Steam?

That would be freaking hilarious; pay Christopher Walken to come into the studio and record his part, and then put him on the box. His part, of course, consists of zero dialog, but he was there!

You hear it too? I wish he'd stop threatening to stab me

If it already was hard to euthanize the companion cube, now more so with the Walken Cube...:(

Key players investigating the ARG are now playing Portal 2 and sending out cryptic messages. A lot of Half Life crossover stuff is coming up too.

Oh, all the stuff upthread with the hijacked users. That's pretty cool.

I'm thinking the 'accelerated countdown' happening now will result in a release at 12:01 -- probably the predetermined outcome all along. But I'm less annoyed with it now that I know at least SOMEONE got SOMETHING out of it. (the people who got 'hijacked'.)

Oh, and edit:

If it already was hard to euthanize the companion cube, now more so with the Walken Cube...

Are you kidding? I'd run shrieking for the incinerator! I mean, just look at redneck's picture.

The horror, the horror.
