Valve's Portal

I just had to share this. I beat Portal after a night of gaming and it has the awesomest song in the credits, take a listen even if you've haven't tried the game! It's pretty amusing.

I've posted the lyrics after the cut.

Portal is a PC game brought to you by the fine makers of Half-Life 2, Valve. While the game is in FPS-style, you do not have guns to engage in combat. Rather, you only have deployable portals at your disposable (1 orange, 1 blue). This game is all about figuring out where and when to set your portals, defy/exploit physics, and just run wild with ideas. While avoiding being killed in the process of course. :P

If you like the song, you'll love it for certain after you've played the game, and you can download the mp3 format at this link. Thanks Timo for lending me Orange Box and Portal! -hugs-

Lyrics to "Still Alive"
as sung by GLaDOS, Aperture Science lab AI

This was a triumph
I'm making a note here
It's hard to overstate
my satisfaction

Aperture Science
We do what we must
Because we can
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are dead

But there's no sense crying
over every mistake
You just keep on trying
till you run out of cake

And the Science gets done
And you make a neat gun
For the people who are
still alive

I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
even though you broke my heart
And killed me

And tore me to pieces
And threw every piece into a fire
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you!

Now these points of data
make a beautiful line
And we're out of beta
We're releasing on time

So I'm GLaD I got burned
Think of all the things we learned
for the people that are still alive

Go ahead and leave me
I think I prefer to stay inside
Maybe you'll find someone else
to help you

Maybe Black Mesa
Anyway, this cake is great
It's so delicious and moist

Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do
When I look out there
it makes me GLaD I'm not you

I've experiments to run
There is research to be done
On the people who are
still alive

And believe me I am
still alive
I'm doing Science and I'm
still alive
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm
still alive

While you're dying I'll be
still alive

And when you're dead I will be
still alive

still alive

the cake is real

It may be real, but if the impromptu BBQ at the end is anything to go by, they don't want you to have any.

LOL I don't know this game but the credits were so humorous, I'd give the game a go for sure. I like the song!
