She also performs the voice of GLaDOS and the turrets. I highly recommend playing portal 1 with commentaries on, to hear how it was her experience making the game (I still haven't listen to the commentaries on portal 2) – juan May 27 '11 at 12:52
Portal 2 commentaries are few and far between, sadly. :/ – Shinrai May 27 '11 at 13:00
The Final Hours of Portal 2 is more insightful in that regard. – user56 May 27 '11 at 21:16
