Portal 2: Tests of the Week - Captain of the Laser Ship

This week Cam and Jake duel it out with seaships, spaceships, and, naturally, lasers.

Cam fights for independence and Jake tries to look ship-shape while Guy presides over all to judge this week's test of the week. Also, lasers.

So many maps are all flash no substance. Aslo I'm tired of all new concept maps that never gets realized. Mevious is my favourite designer by far as he always has a clever thought behind his puzzles.

GET A MOUSE!!!! u suck so much!!! besides, this is on pc and it's intended to be played with a mouse!btw. No player using a controller can surpass another player with a keyboard+mouse

Guy was a jokes troll in Community Service earlier. Lack of catwoman suit was disappointing on Sebs part!

 

Love these weekly Portal 2 compilations! Played all of them so far :)

You could film this on PC with mouse smoothing and lower sensitivity.  Controllers are kind of crappy for any first person perspective game.  

 

I really liked the Independence Day level BTW.  I watched that movie so many times when I was a kid.  :)

 @Red_lath Why is it intended to be played with a mouse? Because you say so? A game is meant to be played like the player wants. If I want to play an FPS with a controller I play with a controller. If you don't know how to use a controller that's your problem.

 

Just like a gaming mouse there are controllers that let you physicality change the sensibility of the thumb sitcks so you can't use that as an excuse.

 

And yes... Players using controllers can surpass keyboard+mouse player...

 @Red_lath When we used a mouse, people complained that it was too twitchy for them.

 

The moral of the story: People whine about anything and everything.

 @Red_lath Nerd much. Seems like it was intended for a lot of platforms. Besides we know you'd suck without your mouse to help those withdrawal shakes. Gotta have steady thumbs or it's a mouse as your only redemption.

 @S3RAF1M  No? you can't do custom maps on consoles. This is on the PC using a game pad.

 @i_like_space Yes, I did. But I'm use to play things like Unreal so my sensitivity / dpi is pretty high. I'm use to it.

 @kassador I agree with almost all u are saying, but not the last part. There is no way to compete in a profesional way on RTS FPS n RPG fields. If you have and example it could light my way plz :P

 @cameronrobinson 

I was just trolling guys. Games exists  to have fun so at the end It doesn't matter if u use a controller or a mouse jejejeje. Actually I grow playing fighting games in NeoGeo systems and consoles - I love controls there. Have you ever tried to play a fighting game with a keyboard? ridiculous jejeje

 

btw. Both of You do a great job and Kevin is pretty accurate with most things. Cheers

 @The_Dragon_Born No man, u are completely wrong...Portal is a classic from PC. It runs mainly with steam and remember the engine within it's built...Yes...P2 has console ports...true that.

 

Regarding controllers: Sticks are capped; they have a limited range of movement, while mouse doesn't, the only limit is how fast u are and the dimensions of ur table/mats. Gamer mice have dynamic DPI, weight control and so on. Ohh and guess what: several buttons make me use my thumbs.

 

btw  what's with the Nerd and mouse relation? non sense? if liking games is nerdy well I'm one, if being a social loser is nerdy, I'm not.

 @Red_lath Will have to wait for CS GO to see that :P That is if  the really make it cross platform :)

 

I must confess that at the moment I don't have proof to backup my claim. You win this round :)

 @The_Dragon_Born I agree with you on most FPS style games, KBD/Mouse is the only way to play them but Portal/Portal 2 are primarily puzzle games. I've played both on the PC & the PS3, the controller works just as well in  this case.

 @Red_lath Like I said in the show, we use the controller to make it a more smooth viewing experience for you guys.
