Two Wonderful New Toys From Portal 2

See how the bouncy Aerial Faith Plates and astounding Excursion Funnels change up gameplay in Portal 2 in parts three and four of Valve's E3 demo video series.

Yesterday we met Wheatley, your new best friend in Portal 2. Now we check out some of the new tech being introduced in the sequel: Aerial Faith Plates and Excursion Funnels.

Aerial Faith Plates are simply spring-loaded plates that bounce you all over the place. They're nifty enough, but flat out boring compared to the Excursion Funnels, seen in the clip below.

The mind simply reels with possibilities, doesn't it?


    I am loving the music in these trailers.

    Holy gawd! 2011 can't come soon enough!

    'look we both said a lot of things that you are going to regret'

    Any word if all they are showing is what was already shown via the E3 live demo video at gametrailers? Wheatley was a great starter, but I've seen these two things and another four already.

    You would think they would start hinting slight backstories or show us something crazy in the cooperative side. Oh well nice to see the same stuff in a clearer quality than a cam.

    Hang on, if yesterdays with the Personality Sphere was video one and these are three and four, where's video number 2?
