  • Wait, MatPat. Didn't you have the motto show below the Game Theory logo after the theme song say "Ruining your childhood since 2011"?

  • What do y’all think about the end of Portal 2 in relation to Half-life. These are details about the outside world according to GLaDOS Portal: Are you trying to escape? Things have changed since the last time you left the building. What's going on out there will make you wish you were back in here. I have an infinite capacity for knowledge, and even I'm not sure what's going on outside. All I know is I'm the only thing standing between us and them. Well, I was. Portal 2: Fifty thousand years is a lot of time to think. About me. About you. We were doing so well together. I'm going to go to the surface. It's a beautiful day out. Yesterday I saw a deer. Well, you passed the test. I didn't see the deer today. I did see some humans. But with you here I've got more test subjects than I'll ever need. These bridges are made from natural light that I pump in from the surface. If you rubbed your cheek on one, it would be like standing outside with the sun shining on your face. I was outside watching some deer frolic. You don't even care about the outside do you?

  • Mat I loved your theory but wouldn't the force of the air pressure going through Chell's Y-axis kill her? I mean, I think you mentioned something like that in The hookclaw video of The Legend of Zelda. Of how horrific and dangerous it would be for Link's body to travel that quickly in a Y-axis. Wouldn't Chell's blood be affected?

  • You're right. I honestly, truly didn't think you'd go for that.

    Luke HildebrandLuke Hildebrand12 ngày trước
  • Hey MatPat, you are right that air molecules at room temperature have a mean velocity of around 450 m/s, that however is not the wind speed you would get when opening a portal to space. The correct equation to use for this would be the Bernoulli's Principle that describes the flow of fluids and gases in pressurized systems. If you use this the wind speeds you would get at the portal would be 406 m/s. This would be even more survivable for Chel. On the other hand this will drain a room extremely fast of all its air. A 20m^3 room (like an airlock on a spaceship) is drained in roughly 25 milliseconds, but since there is a whole in the roof this should not be a problem.

  • If the air is traveling faster than the speed of sound then wouldn't the air molecules travel away before the vibration from Wheatley's speech got to Chell's ears?

  • The whole HL series is played through every other year, and portal to round it off. With every play through, i find something amazing, or a line spoken falls into context, or a situation gets totally turned on its head with more of the lore exposed. I use these games for inspiration.

  • Air was getting sucked out the portal, so maybe right outside the portal there is some air? That would explain why Chell didn't die and why she could hear. I dunno, it's just a theory. A GAME THEORY!

  • 4:00 the oxygen was being sucked out too meaning she might have been able to breathe a little and many because of other particles being sucked out she could hear their voices. Also I think you say it Glad - os. Is meaning operating system she was called glad os Glados operating system of the aperture science facility.
