I shouldn't have looked at those pictures. Reminded me I've applied to do a dissertation on Seismic...

Asides, all jolly exciting; not sure what it's for but whatever it is Valve know how to hype a product, even if we don't know what the product is :P

Anyone else see the resemblance between this and SEM photos of semiconductor chips on a wafer boards with terminals attached? :)

This update is confusing and odd D=

I mean, surely Valve didn't expect the fans to go through all that ARG stuff in the last update this quickly? If they did they're psychic and I'm scared, if they didn't that means they made this update in 2 days, fairly impressive =D

Some more pictures for people to look at there is a cleared up version somewhere on Neogaf.
The prevailing theory is that at GDC which starts on the 9th Valve will announce a new game, possibly portal 2. This will coincide with them announcing Mac support for Steam.
As for the level of this stuff. Believe me this kind of thing happens all the time. I remember the IT Crowd DVD have embedded easter eggs that require just as much commitment to find, and find people did. There are some really geeky people out there :)

Maybe they changed the ending so its easier to jump into the next game with some kind of storyline (Portal 2/Ep3 or whatever game they are annoucing),
Also, Mac support? They haven't that already, I'm surpised, I'm pretty sure people could because I've heard people playing TF2 on their Mac's, Or is that actually not supported by Valve?
Meh, Going to post all the images in here because they look awesome :D

^^Also, I recognise this from somewhere, I just can't remember where


Apparently this is all leading up to some award that Gabe is picking up on the 11th of March some people say because on the BBS login screen (or somewhere where there's a login screen) the version of it is "GLaDios 3.11". If you put 3.11 into a date (American style) its the 11th of march...Which as I said, is the date Gabe is picking up a reward for something :)

Fair enough, but this all took place within 6 hours of the games update being released, I mean the huge variety of technologies used meant that it wouldn't just be one person doing it but for enough people to notice, tell their friends, figure out what changed and all the other jazz in that timescale is absolutely insane.

Oh and my theory on the new ending, they'll update it again but Chell will be saved by Gordon/Alyx/Eli [before ep2]/Kliener/Dog/Barney and portal 2 will be her escaping from these robot things =D
