Weighted companion cube
If you’ve finished Portal by now, you know what I’m talking about. If not, go boot up Portal and play it until you’re finished!
Since I’ve played it, I’m in love with the companion cube. And as it seems, I’m not the only one! The best news is, Valve has recognized the love and promised we can buy our very own companion cube from the valve store! Read the initial email to Gabe Newell and the reply of the store manager (?) Jason Holtman who says they’ve been in production for two months and ready in time for the holidays. I sure hope so, because I’ve contacted the appropriate person at Class-A already to make sure it’s my birthday gift! 😉
In my dreams I already see my own companion cube, waiting for me on a shelve at Valve’s store!!! 😉 The enrichment center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak. In the event that the Weighted Companion Cube does speak, the enrichment center urges you to disregard its advice. If it could talk – and the enrichment center takes this opportunity to remind you that it cannot – it would tell you to go on without it because it would rather die in a fire than become a burden to you. More news is that some nice wallpapers are online, the one from the hamster alliance is on my desktop already. You can find it here, with a high quality one here. For a smaller version, download the rar. More color variations can be found in the ‘open’ dir or on this forum. Another nice one can be found here and one more here. And of course your very own companion cube smiley…
