It was so satisfying to Spoiler (highlight to read):
send Wheatley to space.

Had he been present for most of the awesome parts of the game, I would have uninstalled. Not a single amusing line anywhere in the game, despite the brute-force dialogue.

I like Wheatley and his delivery, particularly his horror story.

"Ooh. It's dark down here isn't it? They say that the old caretaker of this place went absolutely crazy. Chopped up his entire staff... of robots - all of them robots - they say at night you can still hear the screams... of their replicas. All of them functionally indistinguishable from the originals... no memory of the incident... nobody knows what they're screaming about... Ab-solutely terrifying. Though obviously not paranormal in any meaningful way."

It's so dry. His material on its own is completely without merit, and the delivery has been done to death in every kind of media since the dawn of time. "Look at me, I'm a wacky British guy. I sound like I did five miles of cocaine before recording my lines, and I like to repeat the same sentiment several times over using different adjectives and pronunciation as I realise how inappropriate my tone is. I'm funny because I apply that same basic template to all of my manic, bipolar monologues, over and over, and do nothing else."

No. Please. It's cheap and tedious.

Maybe it's because you're foreign, but I found him hilarious.

No, it's because it just isn't funny any more. It has been done over and over again to the point of being nothing but annoying, and without good lines there are absolutely no redeeming factors. Portal 1 had some hilarious parts that were great precisely because the formula they used was relatively untainted, and very well executed. Wheatley is just a weak attempt at capitalising on something contemporary, and building it on top of a very plain foundation.

Valve are American developer, producing their games in (American) English.
So the obvious choice for voice dubbing could have been an American artist.

Some people liked Wheatley, some didn't. Let's move on.

Was sent this link by a friend. Quite neat.

Well, now that you told me to lighten up, I suddenly find the character to be charming and witty. Thank you, unnamednewbie!

Did you expect it in 1?  Yea, it was hard trying to put them together without having too many parts.  We managed to break one of the test chambers though.  kind of funny.  Its in the last part at the end of the video.

Naw, it doesn't bug me. I watched most of X's adventures in minecraft, after all. Going to have to put off these until I finish coop, though.
