Way way back last year Dave announced that episodes of G4 classic “Portal” would soon be availiable on G4’s site for download. In October, there was a computer crash and lots of progress was apparently lost on the project.
Fast forward 6 months and we are still without any of these videos. Gringo, a member of the G4 webteam mentioned months ago that he was working on them, albeit very slowly. Dave has finally updated us via his forums on the matter.
First of all, I’d like to apologize to everyone for the horrible delay. If I had to do it over, I would have never made the announcement so soon. I get so many e-mails asking about Portal DVD’s that I really just wanted to share some good news.
At any rate, it’s like this… G4 is going through all kinds of changes, and has been for a while now. It’s been a busy year for them. Re-branding, re-programming, etc. No big secrets there. And, they’re moving headquarters right now. So… Portal Webisodes have just not been a priority. And they might not be for a while. The good news is, certain key parties are still there, and still want to do this, so let’s all cross our fingers together and hopefully this can still happen. Eventually.
Moe Tuesday must be turning over in his grave.
Just as we had suspected, Portal videos are on the backburner for now. Hopefully after G4 is settled down in their new homes they’ll take a look at them again.
