More Portal 2 video goodness introducing Faith Plates and Repulsion Gel

Keeping up with the recent Portal 2 theme, here are a couple of Portal 2 gameplay videos that introduce two new features in the game – The Faith Plate and Repulsion Gel. Both look like they’ll make Portal 2 even more fiendish and even more fun. Or perhaps only one of these depending on what you believe…

The first Portal 2video from Aperture Science (not from Valve, honest) shows the Aerial Faith Plate’s of Portal 2 in action. What is an Aerial Faith Plate, will text in the first of the two Portal 2 videos explains:

“Aerial Faith Plates are part of a larger trust experiment designed to help the Enrichment Centre discover whether the capacity for trust is effected by being catapulted into space”

Sounds pretty standard there doesn’t it? The Portal 2 Faith Plate Gameplay video shows the player using them to get behind a turret before using the Portal gun to fling that nasty gun to its doom. Meanwhile, the second Portal 2 gameplay video demonstrates the Repulsion Gel, with the text explaining:

“Aperture’s second attempt at a dietetic pudding substitute resulted in Repulsion Gel, a much sweeter, slightly less non-toxic form of fibreglass insulation that caused subsequently ingested food items to bounce off the lining of the dieters stomach and out of his or her mouth”

For various reasons this was also pulled from the shelves”

The Portal 2 Repulsion Gel gameplay video looks very fun indeed, with the player using the Portal gun to manipulate the gel in order to crush some turrets. Of course, they also use it to bounce around to solve one of Portal 2’s many puzzles.

Both the Portal 2 Faith Plate and Repulsion Gel videos – originally shown at GamesCom – are below

So Train2Game, what do you think of these new addictions to Portal 2? Will they overcomplicate the game?
