Portal 2: Weighted Companion Cube Is Back!

By John Walker on March 1st, 2011.

There you are, my cuboid darling.

In the midst of GDC, Valve have released a bundle of new screenshots for Portal 2. Some of them are indescribably boring, but others are completely ace, and one of them features everyone’s favourite friend, the Weighted Companion Cube! Hooray! That little box of love is to return, despite his tragic destruction in the first game. What cruel fate awaits him this time around? It’s enough to make me go hug my freezer in delight. They’re all below.

Afternoon Valve Nonsense Round-Up

By John Walker on January 15th, 2008.

It seems churlish not to link to all this madness.

First up, it’s TF2 in Lego!

Lego makes everything at least 45% better.

Follow the link, as there’s lots more of these, and it’s obligatory that you look at them.

Next, how about a Weighted Companion Cube made of balloons?

Weighted Companion Cube Plush!

By John Walker on November 10th, 2007.

Load Steam and see what’s in the Update News.

Why, it’s the Weighted Companion Cube Plush!


So there’s everyone’s questions answered about how they’ll make it: squishy. Apart from how big it is. But if those super-tasteful rear-view mirror cubes are anything to go by, not quite life-size.

Um, Valve, you know how we love you forever and ever and everything – can we pre-order one? Um, four?

Today’s Weighted Companion Cube Post…

By Alec Meer on October 29th, 2007.

…is the Weighted Companion Cube Post about the Weighted Companion Cube pumpkin.

(Click for more). Especially apt, of course, because it involves burning. Well done, expert pumpkin-carver-man Jimbojw.

Project FreezerCube – Part One

By John Walker on October 16th, 2007.

So here’s a little something I like to call, Project FreezerCube.

(aka: Project Oh Please Someone Help Me I’m Losing My Mind)

No seriously, what's wrong with meClick to see the true madness.

I’ve decided my freezer must become a Weighted Companion Cube. Why? What sort of question is Why? Because it’s white, almost cuboid, and I murdered my last one.

It may be getting silly now.

More Weighted Companion Cube Love

By Alec Meer on October 13th, 2007.

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.

Cuddle Your Cube

By John Walker on October 11th, 2007.

So this is weird. Tonight, in a fit of madness and love, I emailed Valve’s over-harrassed PR wunder-human to demand that they immediately begin manufacturing a Weighted Companion Cube plush toy to add to their range. (While over there, I spotted a prototype Hunter plushie, which was all kinds of cute). And then I find they’ve already confirmed it, via the least official means possible.

PC Gamer report that an email from Gabe Newell was posted on Penny Arcade’s forum, assuring him that cuddly cubes will be out before Christmas. Or as I prefer to put it to everyone who loves me, in time for Christmas.

So if a forum post linked via a blog post (for a magazine that appears to have completely THIEVED our guide for getting That Song from your files without crediting us at all – I’d assume they sourced it from elsewhere as is hugely likely, but then I’d not be able to feel self-righteous) is true, hip-hip: hooray!

Now, the question remains, will they be making plush incinerators?

And I have a desktop to prove it.

I'll never leave you.
