Portal 2 'Insane Cube Tricks' video is true to its name

We anticipated that we'd be seeing some Portal 2 trick videos sooner or later -- but we wouldn't have predicted the tricks therein wouldn't really involve that many portals. Check out the video after the jump to see some truly impressive cube throws, by way of YouTube user Schrobotindisguise.

The story is too old to be commented.

Portal 2 just doesn't stop impressing me. I love this game.

this game looks pretty badass, do i have to get the first one before this one?

Not really, but it is recommended.

There's a lot of references to the first game in Portal2. Makes things a lot enjoyable (especially the final boss fight)

Most I managed was air-strafing to avoid using some portals in co-op :/ Didn't know you could throw the cubes like that, amazing.

Its down to the physics the game runs off, the motion of the object before released is calculated into the motion during and after release.

Small details like this is why people love Valve so much

Yeah, I like how they've tried to leave tricks for people to try this time around. Portal 1 speedruns were full of pure glitches, this time they've thought about it and it's intentional.

I don't remember being able to air-strafe in Portal 1, it was probably possible though, after all, it's all based upon the Quake engine :)

The one at 1:55 made me laugh! ....and feel sorry for my own cube tossing abilities:(

I'm starting a new playthrough right now just to try some of this stuff out.
