You guys all know what a big Valve fan boy I am, right? I mean, I’m currently drinking coffee out of my Black Mesa mug with a headcrab hat on in a room covered in Left 4 Dead posters. I love Valve.

Yesterday the developer released its newest TV commercial, this time its for their upcoming game Portal 2. As you can see above, the commercial features the two playable robots from the newly added co-op mode, Atlas and P-Body, as they learn about portals and the possibilities they open.
I don’t know about you guys, but I loved the commercial. I think it does a wonderful job of introducing the concept of portals to people who may not have played the first game or may not be gamers at all. I would have liked it to be a little bit longer, maybe showcasing the new Propulsion Gel or maybe just some more in game footage. Regardless, I still loved it; but than again, I am a huge Valve fan boy.

What do you guys think about this? Do you think this is a good move for Valve? Does this commercial make you wanna play Portal 2. Do you think it will help pull in gamers and non-gamers alike? Let us know what you think with a comment below.

    Given how tame this trailer is I’m sure it’s directed towards potential newcomers to the series. I’m flipping lid over the cross-platform support for ps3 and pc, can’t wait to play co-op in the same room.
