I absolutely loved Portal, so much that I’ve included one of the sounds as my text tone.  So when I see something a awesome as this, where they take the original soundtrack and an artist creates a fully animated and original take on an iconic scene, I get super freaking giddy.  I loved the reaction Chell has, seeing as we technically can’t see it.  Her face is full of absolute disgust, and then GLaDOS is masterfully rendered as a half human/half robotic being that captures her chilling tone.  And Wheatley looks like Steven Merchant.  Which fits perfectly.  Gosh I wanna play this game again, I’ll probably play it again in a couple of weeks seeing as I’ve probably forgotten how to solve some of the puzzles.

Superstar artist Andrea Tamme drew some amazing concept looking Portal art featuring a sensual moment between Chell and Glados.  It’s a neat photo, having it set in debris which I can only imagine is Aperture Science.  I wonder what they’re talking about.  I’m assuming this is pleasant conversation, so the subjects of lying cake, obesity, and loveless parents aren’t on the table.  Maybe they’re talking about that time when Chell turned Glados into a potato.  Surely Glados has a sense of humor…well maybe not when she’s the victim.

Regardless, check out this photo and many other photos at Andrea Tamme’s deviant art page!

Oh my goodness, I aboslutely love this.  There are two references here: Portal and Legend of Korra.  This is from one of the first episodes of Legend of Korra where Chief Beifong allows Korra to leave her prison cell, but not without leaving a message.  And as Korra leaves, she fires a message right back.  The genius is replacing the body art with skins from the portal series.  Korra has become Chell and Chief Beifong as Glados.

What’s so great about this is because this interplay between the two characters from Legend of Korra resonate fairly well with the characters from Portal.  The adorable [yet slightly weird] relationship between Chell and Glados is exactly how Korra treats Chief Beifong.  I wish I could credit someone for something so great, but in all honesty, it’s so hard to find sources to unmarked GIFS such as these.  If anyone knows please enlighten me.

Minecraft is My New Horrid Addiction

After spending some cash of a game that’s essentially a very advance Farmville, I’ve become horribly addicted to Minecraft.  Instead of writing a review, I truly plan on telling you all of the horrible things I’ve encountered…and why I can’t stay away.

The Avengers Get a Really Cool New Intro

Joss Whedon is heavily known for the Avengers.  So the Avengers get a different kind of opening paying tribute to Joss Whedon.

A great part of the video game experience is a multiplayer component.  A lot of the games I’m playing these days all have cooperative or competitive aspects that let me play with or against players all around the world or with my friends on my couch.  Here’s a list of games I’m playing and the experiences I’m having with it.
