this isnt a fact but rumors have it that chell dies at the end of portal 2. when the turrets target her they shoot her. in Greek mythology it is said that when you die on your way to heaven you will hear calming music and heaven is a wheat farm and when you are in heaven you will be accompanied with your love ones who are also dead... that's why she gets a burned up companion cube

You said half-life 2?

Companies as we know them could not be competing with each other in HL 2 because that game is set 17 years after the earth is taken over by the combine. Black mesa ceases to exist in such a way that they would show up in the powerpoint presentation depicted in the first portal game. (The place was nuked, and if it is still an organization it is underground)

You could argue that portal ONE and HL ONE are in the same timeline, It would be weird if they weren't (They both had 90's/00's tech and were mentioned in each others games. However, only portal 1 can exist in the 90's/00's. Portal two is usually estimated to be several thousands of years after portal 1.

The cryo-stasis ran out of numbers to tell you what year it is when you eventually woke up for good at the beginning of portal 2. That and the ridiculous overgrowing and destruction of the facility. Cave Johnson's recordings are from the Mid 20th century. He died around then also.

TLR Half-life 2 in the first fact is a typo or mistake

Most of these "facts" can only be new to you if you only played the first testing chamber.   
Also, the facts that aren't obvious are completely WRONG.   
   
   
Portal 1 is set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2, somewhere around 2010 (HL1 is set somewhere between 2000-2009, HL2 is 2020-2029).   
   
Portal 1 is set not many years/months after Earth surrendered to the Combine, and Chell slowly learns that all of the employed people at Aperture have either escaped or been killed by GLaDOS; She had kept them all locked in Aperture since the "Bring your daughter to work" -day in the Mid-90's, when Chell was (probably) 10 years of age.    
   
However, after the events of Portal 1, it is discovered that Doug Rattman survived the neurotoxin attacks of GLaDOS in the 90's, and witnessed when Chell was being dragged back by the Party Escort Bot after Portal 1.    
   
Now, after the neurotoxin attacks of GLaDOS, she is being kept under constant restrain, but she manages to get in control a couple of days before the events of HL1, forcing everyone to stay inside and finish their teleporting-project. However, their competitors at Black Mesa finishes first, which ends in the Alien Invasion, and GlaDOS killing everyone at Aperture (besides most test subjects): This most likely occured 16th of May 2003.   
   
Before Portal 2, Aperture has been quiet, with Personality Cores and other systems controlling the facility and test subjects held in stasis; Doug Rattman supervises Chell. After Dougman dies (shot by a turret), Chell is awaken and the events of Portal 2 starts.   
   
After GLaDOS releases Chell, it is unclear what year it is (at least after 2015), and if the Combine are still in control of Earth.   
   
That's it, basicly.

This is all old news that has been revealed in Portal 2 and the webcomic "Lab Rat."

What the hell? These aren't interesting facts, they're **** that's stated in the games. You only wouldn't know these if you'd never played them, and if you'd never played them why would you be interested in the first place? Doug Rattman isn't a rumor, he did survive, and he is canonically the one leaving the messages. read Lab Rat. The only one that was interesting was the last one, which was pretty cool.

So could I go make a post of video game facts and list:

Eli Vance is Alix VAnce's father

The Heavy is from Russia

Mario and Luigi are brothers

Link and Zelda are destined to be together

and get front page?

It's also been speculated that companion cubes might have people crammed in them.

But doesn't anyone who's played the game know all of this?

User avatar #115 - skulldan (07/26/2013) [-]

'There was a rumor..'

how long have you been saving this post in your arse.
#67 - midothegreat (07/26/2013) [+] (2 replies)
Don't know if it has been mentioned yet, but i find the theory of Chell being Cave Johnson and Caroline's daughter (or one of the 2) also interesting, and wouldn't mind if it were true.
