Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Not every one, just 11 of them. Every monitor is destructible, though, if you can find a way.

    Looking for a Portal 2 co-op virgin who wants to play though it with me.

    Got a mic and if you have one too, we're in business.

    Post Steam community link and will add you to friends and we can play.

    I just realized that I didn't read the achievement very carefully and have been destroying cameras like in the first game, not the monitors. I'm dumb =/

    If you were still looking in a few hours and if I could get my microphone working, I'd be down. Those are two pretty big 'if's though, so if you can find someone else go ahead.

    This is me.

    Yeah I should still be looking for someone in a few hours.

    I'm trying on 4chan.org/v/ and needless to say it's not been a very fruitful endeavor.

    I'll add you to my friends list and when you get on, message me.

    It says "online" in the achievement description, so I doubt it. I really am curious about this achievement, since you have to beat it first, and then play with someone who has yet to play it to get the achievement. This already means at least half of everyone will never get this achievement.

    Those who 'are taught by the portal professor' can get the portal professor achievement themselves as well by beating it and instructing another, so the upper limit is n-1. Which isn't too bad considering not that many people are big achievement hunters.

    Well, damn. While it runs fine while Boot Camp'd, apparently the OS X version of Portal 2 doesn't support my video card. (It's a Radeon X1600.)

    So its one of those "Do this or play with someone who has" achievements?

    I don't usually go out of my way to 1000/1000 a game, but special ones like Portal deserve that kind of effort from me, and I like to think it showcases just how much I like a game. It will literally gnaw away at my brain if I can get all of them but one...:x

    No, you still have to be the instructor. But being a trainee doesn't prevent you from becoming an instructor eventually.

    still, a lot of gamers already gave up the opportunity to be someone else's trainee :)

    Hey! I've been avoiding spoilers for this like the plague and just finished the single player game--so awesome! Oh gods! Etc. etc.

    I wanted to ask the thread a favor--can I get a no-spoiler summary of what chapters have things like secret rooms, easter eggs, etc.? ie., something like "there are secret rooms in Chapters 3, 4, and 6" but not what they are or how to get them.

    Also: Should I be super wary of co-op spoilers? Ie., is there a story to it as well, or is it more of just a straight puzzles thing?

    Mostly puzzles based on mechanics found throughout the game. A little side storyline.

    I believe Chapters 2 & 3 have secret rooms (one of which is involved in an achievement). I forget what chapters the others are in. I want to say one is in Chapter 5.

    Edit: There is also what might be considered an easter egg near the end of Chapter 3. The location of which will most assuredly draw your attention (you literally can't miss this), but you may miss the specific cool thing if you don't stop to examine it :P

    Edit 2: Also, this may not classify as an easter egg, but pretty much anytime Wheatly asks you to do something or go somewhere, just wait. He almost always has a ton of extra dialog and most of it is hilarious.

    There's some great dialog and the story, while minimal, might not be as good if you let it get spoiled.
