Weighted companion cube

I_want_one_by_berdwinIf 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


Other maps and more maps started appearing as well. If there are any more (collections), please let me know by replying!

If you can’t wait for the official desktop toy, you can start creating your own cubes here. And if you liked the end song as much as me, go learn how to get it from Portal here.

    Great game indeed. Unfortunately I got myself the 360 version. Let’s hope additional maps will be available on live soon.

    I also check back regularly to see if the Weighted Companion cube is in stores yet. I already bought the Portal t-shirt. I was a bit disappointed that it was so generic and the logo “now you’re thinking with portals” isn’t nearly as good as “the cake is a lie”.

    The still alive song is from the companion cube. Not from GladiOS. (final boss)

    you broke my heart and killed me
    and tore me to pieces
    and threw every piece into a fire

    sounds more like GladiOS to me

    Yeah those are GlaDOS’s words, not the cube. The woman who voices her said so in the developer commentary.

    “It makes me GLaD I am not you”

    “I am doing science and I’m still alive”

    “We just keep on trying until we run out of cake”

    Yeah, it’s definitely GLaDOS

    i got the companion cube to talk on the ps3 version
    if you pick it up and drop it real fastrepeatedly after you beat the game numerous times it will say “ouch that hurts”
