It would be cool to have more complex test chambers, where you have to use all the new "paints", like this:

Where the hell is everyone getting the paint thing? Does no one realize how out-of-context and hilariously terrible that would be for Portal? Just because they hired more DigiPen students does not mean they're a) incorporating them into Portal 2 - Valve hires new talent all the time just because they think there might be a position in which they're valuable, b) using the "paint" technique in Portal 2 in any way, shape, or form, or c) even doing anything with TAG whatsoever - they may just be supplementary to the Nuclear Monkey group, or have talent with a particular type of code, dealing with portalable and non-portalable walls. THINK about these things, people.

It's both in the gameinformer article, and the thing they released today, do your research before criticizing

I think a level that has you killing turrets with the new tractor beam feature would be cool. Just sayin.

Tractor beams? Who said that? Portal isn't even set on a farm, why would they have tractors? What next, cows and sheep? Sheesh, just because Valve say something about their game that makes it a fact does it? Think before you write people.

Either you don't understand jokes or you're joking and I'm missing it big time. I can't tell which.
