You think that's bad? In the original plans of Portal 2 (it was supposed to be MUCH darker, until they apparently thought that it would be so much more difficult to market, so they added silly robots and a second, less serious storyline) there was a scene in which you hear Cave Johnson force Caroline into the machine that would "download" her into an AI, but Cave's voice actor straight up refused to voice it. Also, you were supposed to find Caroline's dead body, still strapped into the machine, which would cause GLaDOS into an emotional fit. In fact, that was supposed to be the climax of the game. Also, Wheatley was a last minute add, just like Atlas and P-Body.

Dude... I so wish they had done this. I didn't like how "light" the game felt compared to the first one because of all the silly jokes and robots.

I sincerely doubt that. First because you have no sources, secondly because why the **** would a voice actor refuse to do that? You don't seem to understand how difficult it is to get work as a voice actor, the vast majority of them just can't afford to.

It's not even as though it would be hard to find another voice actor willing to do it. You think mimicking Cave's voice is hard? Or that they couldn't find someone else?

Plus, his character raped men all the time on the TV show "Oz", so i find it hard to believe that he would have a problem with voicing that scene

But the machine was intended for Cave and only to be used for Caroline in the event of Cave's death before the machine's completion... Why would Cave be forcing Caroline into the machine?

Actually, Ellen Mclain (voice of GlaDOS and turrets etc) recorded her lines for the scene of forcing caroline into the machine, but the VA for cave wouldn't do it for fear it sounded too much like a rape scene.

Wheately was originally 6 different cores, by Valve changed it to just 1 for character development.

I dunno, I liked the upbeat storyline of portal 2. It's more fun (personally) to play a game with jokes in it than potential rape scenes. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good horror game as much as the next guy, but comedy is far more appealing to me.

Yeah I really felt like the game was too light, considering it's about an abandoned underground facility ruled by a psychopathic robot who killed thousands of people.

Corn is an old generic word for all kinds of grain like barley, wheat and rye.
It was used in the Americas to describe maize or sweetcorn.

Obviously since the ancient Greeks and the guys who translated their texts into English didn't know about America or the mysterious plant there called maize that would later also be known as corn, they didn't bother to distinguish them.

So that IS in fact a cornfield.

The greeks didn't have access to corn, it wasn't known in Europe until the 1500s, roughly, because it grew in the New World.

Dude of course the ancient greeks had corn. It just wasn´t the corn you find in America.

The corn in the US is actually maize.
In England corn was called wheat.
And in Scotland and Ireland it´s called oats (thus oatmeal).

But they definately had corn, or else they wouldn't have been able to make bread.

I'm sorry, but the content is right and you are wrong. If you would have said the greeks didn't have acces to maize, then you would be right. But what you see in the picture (and what was available to all of Europe) is a wheatfield, or also a cornfield.

A cornfield is a field containing cereal grain, such as wheat.

No, it is not. Corn can be divided into many different groups, like wheat, oats and maize. In America, it's called maize.
In Scotland and Ireland, it's called oats.
And in England it's called wheat.

The picture shows a wheatfield. Wheat = corn, so it shows a cornfield, thus the pic is right and you are wrong.

Ah, the wonderful world of foreshadowing.

The thing is that developers have, time and again, gone out of their way to tell you things without out and out telling you. Garry's Raticate is a good example of this. The trick to doing this is that enough information is given to support the thesis without completely proving it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

It leaves the decision ultimately with the player, allowing them a personal stake in first the discovery and then the defence of the theory. As such, Valve have played a masterful hand in creating a theory that is as provable as it is fallible and letting us choose wether we want to believe it or not.
