    [–] at playing it cool vtipoman 17 points ago in therewasanattempt

    As a normal human being, I would also be right there with you.

    Where are Spiderman and Elsa though

    [–] Ok...? vtipoman 1 points ago in Steam

    Played a lot of them, actually.

    [–] Scariest moment in Portal? vtipoman 1 points ago in Portal

    Was talking about the Chell that follows you around and sometimes indirectly interacts with you. It starts showing up in the second or third part IIRC.

    [–] Weekly Condo Contest: Announcement (Week 1) vtipoman 1 points ago in towerunite

    You should probably announce this on the forums and Steam Discussions

    [–] Really interested in buying this game, but was just wondering how active the community is a year and a half down the road? vtipoman 1 points ago in towerunite

    There are usually about 200 people (more than in GMT) online at any given time, but they are more spread around than in GMT. That's probably due to more regional lobby servers and P2P gameworlds/condos, which are all great things in my opinion.

    [–] EA Says People Don't Like Linear Games Anymore. EA Is Wrong. vtipoman 1 points ago in gaming

    The industry's been saying that for ages. Not that it's true, they just want to make games they can fill with microtransactions.

    [–] Theory: Who Helen owes, who Pyro is and also what's going on. (spoilers) vtipoman 1 points ago in tf2

    AFAIK, she (the maidservant, who I believe is the same person as the Administrator) received all of Mann's Australium after he died. She could had been using it directly before Radigan even built the life-extending machines. Kinda like the australians, except more sparingly.

    Also, in The Naked and the Dead, Pauling outright states the Administrator has been planning her scheme "for a lot of lifetimes".

    That's what everyone seems to think, but in Blood in the Water, Pauling outright states they were "hand-picked by the Administrator because [they]'re the best of the best".

    [–] My favorite NPC line vtipoman 1 points ago in gaming

    Tower Unite

    Wait, isn't the "younger self" from the reflection a.. little girl? The administrator even uses the exact words.

    [–] Theory: Who Helen owes, who Pyro is and also what's going on. (spoilers) vtipoman 4 points ago in tf2

    Yep, forgot about that. Still, faking his death is something the Administrator would do, especially if she wanted no-one to suspect he's still around.

    I mean, it's possible the entire "the same 9 people killing each other repeatedly" thing is just a gameplay quirk. I just prefer the cloning theory.

    Never thought of that. It makes sense, though. Helen could also be Pauling's ancestor in some way, now that I think about it.

    I mean, he made everyone at Frontier Engineering "a millionare". He can be intelligent and insane at the same time.

    Jeez, I was looking for that website for ages! Must have been taken down. Thanks!

    Anyway, I don't think my theory conflicts with the Respawn Hypothesis that much. The details are different, sure, but the cloning is still there, as well as one clone leaving after each shift and "being" the real mercenary.
