thank you Matt patt it took me a little longer than an evening to finish the game because I'm so new to gaming but I'm SO glad that you convinced me to play it before finishing the video. I loved every second and my mind was blown

Probably you won't get to see this comment, but would be nice to make a video about how chell could actually be a cyborg, other than having artificial legs. Hear me out, we know she wakes up so far into the future that the whole facility is infested with vegetation, a lot of systems failing, so how safe is it to assume that the life support is still operational ( if there was one in the first place ) we know glados sayd there wasnt any oxigen pumped in anymore inside the rooms, we never see food or water anywhere, not even canned military grade food can last that long.. That could also explain why she survived space.

3:39 we dont need to wait any longer, we all know its because the air in the chamber is being sucked out- a viable explanation to why you are knocked out when your pulled back in

Let alone the cut scene between chell being pulled in and waking up to Glados could mean she lost consciousness, but perhaps for only a few minutes to an hour. (Unknown time passage) So it makes even more sense that she survived. As for the air rushing out, keep in mind that Aperture also recycles the air in the facility. So Glados or the facility would recycle that chamber constantly as the air was lost. Thus she could have quite literally survived just fine!

3:42 Well, you should be able to hear Wheatley in space because the air is escaping out in to the space via the vacuum, so you can breathe and hear sounds at the same time because we all know that sound is a vibration of the air, but do to the wind of air escaping so fast I think it should be pretty difficult to hear.

I'm kinda curious how you came up with mach 1.2, since the speed that air particles travel at in atmosphere (and the speed I would jump too for how fast they would leave the room) is approximately the speed of sound. 20% seems like to big of an error to me, so I assume I'm missing something. Curious as to what that would be?

Alex Villalobos
Alex Villalobos 16 dager siden
how did you calculate the speed of the air flow? it just seems odd. the pressure difference is less than 1 atmosphere, that is weak. A soda bottle has aprox 5 atm and you dont blast off when you open one. Obviously its not the same to compare a soda bottle with a room full of air. but I just want to know where that number came from.

FlippEED1AM0nd 16 dager siden
remember Chell is a test subject right? so maybe she was modified to survive those conditions and Glados predicted that and secretly adjusted the toughness of her skin, ex being able to survive 2 bullets from a high tech robot without bleeding, impressive huh?

What kills people suddenly in space is sudden decompression, not space itself. If you were to decompress yourself at a slow rate and then jump into space you would be able to survive a couple of minutes.

Just wondering why you don't account for the fact that this is a much lower than Sea Level facility with drastically reduced air pressure that the game even references it doesn't pump air in it simply recycles what is there. This fact could imply that the pressure itself would also be minimal due to Aperture Sciences nature. Lending even more credibility to the fact that it would be survivable and not even as dramatic.

Also, Wheatley would be blocking some of the wind rushing into Chell’s face, so she would be experiencing a slightly lower wind speed than if he wasn’t there.

BigBoiRaltor 24 dager siden
Chell can survive in space but can she survive the Combine? I mean, lets be real here. There’s not really any moon dust just lying around on surfaces that she can portal with, and the Combine’s synths are definitely worse than a lot of the things Aperture uses, so I don’t think she’s surviving the outside world. Maybe she is dead, I don’t know, she might not be. It’ll probably never be answered though.

The pressure would equalize pretty quick. In portal 1 glados says that they take co2 out of the room, extract the carbon, and put it back in. Completely sealed off from the atmosphere. But Bad news, the labs would have no air.
