So, at the end, you basically found a giant storage room of humans for testing. I was waiting for Atlas and P Body to be shocked and do something badass to foil Glados's plan, but they just hugged and the game ended. What the crap? That is not a happy ending, it just puts all of Chell's efforts to waste. It felt so tacked on to, with Glados randomly saying "robot testing isn't real testing". I was expecting something awesome in the vault but nothing happened.

Also, when does the co-op campaign take place in relation to the single player?

You do know that Co-op happens before the original Portal, right? Somewhere in that group of humans is Chell. She was probably the final human on the list, and the only one to escape.

Actually, she was priority #1 after Doug altered the order they came in.

Its expressly after you reawaken GLaDOS
She mentions that she came up with the Cooperative Testing Initiative after Chell kills her

And the whole point of Co-op after Chell escapes is that the bots have to replace her because its not an actual test without humans
So she has the bots locate more

Not true at all. GLaDOS even makes a referene in co-op to Wheatley and Chell.

spoiler alert.......









Personally, I think that co-op happens in between the time that Chell is knocked out after being brought back from the moon and when she is awakened to see atlas and p-body. It could explain why GLaDOS so easily let her go. Plenty of new humans to test. Then again, it could have happened at any time during the single player that GLaDOS was in control.

"Then again, it could have happened at any time during the single player that GLaDOS was in control."

Nah, it without a doubt has to be at the very end of the game, because near the end, prior to GLaDOS retaking control, when you were trying to reach Wheatley, with GLaDOS, Wheatley mentions that he found the two co-op droids buried back in storage.

It is possible that it took place while Chell was passed out, but, I don't think she was out for that long.
The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are just that, thoughts and opinions, if you agree, cool, if not, instead of whining about it, get a life.

That, and if it did happen while she was out, she would have been a lot nicer to Atlus and P-Body, because she wouldn't have deleted Caroline.

Also, throughout all the chambers they were working up on a plot where they slowly were gaining human traits. It would have made an amazing climax, but they just stopped it dead. I really think that the ending was rushed. (or on second thought, maybe all this has something to do with the DLC)
