Portal 2 Developer Commentary: Confidence Building

by Joseph Garrett on May 4th, 2011, under gameplay, Valve, Video Thirst

Developer Commentaries are becoming a standard edition with Valve’s games, but few other developers have tried anything similar. This is surprising as they are such a worthy addiction to their games. How else would i know how they decided which pitch to make the zombies grunt in Left 4 Dead, or how the pattern’s in the walls draw peoples attention to specific areas in portal 1.

While being able to listen to these commentaries while playing through the game works brilliantly, sometimes you want to skip the gameplay and just listen to the commentary. The is especially so in Portal 2 as you cannot’t save and the commentary nodes are spread so thinly throughout the game. To make things easier for you I have recorded all of the commentary nodes so you can sit through them all in a row without solving a puzzle. I will be posting a video a day, starting off today with the co-op commentaries.
