So Valve has decided on an actor for the robot Wheatley for Portal 2. Turns out the person doing the voice in the original video was a Valve employee, so they have made a new video with Stephen Merchant doing the Wheatley Voice. Unfortunately they also deleted the original version of the video (originally posted here: http://www.amused-geeks.com/2010/06/29/new-portal-video/).
I personally prefer the new voice, but there seem to be a number of people who liked the old voice. Since I tend to keep copies of everything, here’s both so you can decide for yourself.

Valve’s Team Fortress 2 is in the middle of their Engineer Update, their 9th class update since the game was released back in 2007 and as part of the update they have been giving out 100 golden wrenches supposedly given at random when people craft other items.

Hey look, I actually posted something!
More Portal 2 vids from Valve. Games looks really neat, lots of new toys, a portal gun that sucks things into the portal, taking the companion cube with you, my only problem is I worry I might be terrible at this game if the platforming gets too intense =D
