Portal Gun Shootout

Valve’s Portal is one of the all-time great puzzle games ever made—a first-person shooter in which you use a gun that fires in and out portals you’ll need to work with in order to try to escape the facility you’re being held in.

But what if word of Aperture Science’s gun got out and a consumer version was made available to the masses? Surely YouTube would benefit the most, with countless funny or mind-boggling videos made using the devices being uploaded as people experimented. Then there’s the less positive side of things…

In an impressive and hilarious new video, a heated confrontation escalates quickly into an all-out portal gun firefight, and it’s to no one’s benefit. You can watch it below.

Make no mistake about it, even though this is about learning, GLaDOS is still very much evil!

Half-Life Image

If you pay attention to entertainment news headlines even just a little bit, then you’ve noticed the name J.J. Abrams quite often lately.

Now Abrams is adding to this run in the spotlight and looking to fortify his status amongst the geeks of this world.

Portal GlaDOS Image

Guillermo del Toro is one of the most talented and visionary directors and storytellers working today. He also happens to be a massive geek, just like you or I. This is exactly why most geeks have “hug Guillermo del Toro” somewhere on their bucket lists.

One of the forms of entertainment that del Toro is a big fan of, as many of us are, is video games. And one of his favorite games is the ultra-popular Valve Software puzzler Portal.

This became blatantly obvious when we finally got our eyes on the first trailer for del Toro’s overwhelmingly massive giant robots vs. giant monsters movie, Pacific Rim, in which the voice of the equally popular Portal villain GlaDOS can be heard.
