More Weighted Companion Cube Love

By Alec Meer on October 13th, 2007 at 11:22 am.

The world, quite understandably, simply adores Portal’s silent square. While we all tough out the agonising wait until Christmas to snuggle up to an official Weighted Companion Cube plushie, here’s a couple more wallpapers that RPS readers have kindly pointed out.

Chris sends this piece of widescreen eyeball delight, available in multiple shades including ‘toxic green’ and ‘hot pink’:

And Wolf sends his own fine creation, available in widescreen and full-fat flavours here.

    There’s a rather nice wallpaper image available courtesy of Ledneh, along with a embarrassingly cute Weighted Companion Cube emote.

    Hypocrites! You killed the cube, and now you claim to love it? You’re worse than GLaDOS.

    Fluffy bunny: OBJECTION! (Link may contain spoilers)

  4. fluffy bunny says:

    Yeah, sorry about that. Please delete it.

  5. fluffy bunny says:

    Erm, sorry, I meant: my message contains major spoilers, please delete it. :)

    RPS might forgive you. But will WCC?

    I just hacked in emoticon support into my self-spawned blog software, the sensibly named BaaBaa-BlogSheep(tm).

    It supports just one emoticon.

    The Weighted Companion Cube given above. It expresses all that is important in life. All other emotions are secondary.

    Sadly, it’s only lovable because you killed it.

    ASCII companion cube extracted from the credits (as per http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/?p=414), obviously it’s somwhat borked unless viewed in notepad or similar:

    Hmm, the comment system seems to remove multiple spaces so it’s truly borked now.

    Do it with <pre> wrapped around. In fact I think I will, since my last attempt was crushed by the very system I am now subverting.
