Even if you haven't played Valve's excellent puzzle shooter, you've probably run into characters from the Portal universe somewhere, whether it be a homicidal robo-ball or an irresistibly adorable cube. Portal's zany cast makes for some good video gamin', and awesome gifts to boot.
A puppeteer and cosplay enthusiast who goes by TRP-Chan has turned Portal 2's bumbling robo-ball Wheatley into an impressive puppet that's just as animated as its video game counterpart. This is something you'll definitely want to see in motion.
How would Valve's Portal 2 play if it was controlled with motion gestures on Kinect? It'd look a lot like this Kinect hack created by Brad Cooley.
Don't tell anyone, but I'm currently sitting here counting down the minutes until I can head out of the office and go get a healthy dose of some Portal 2 craziness. All day it's been a long, painful wait. Well, if you need a quick fix, you can check out the first 15 minutes right here, right now.
Check out this new TV spot for the forthcoming sequel to one of the greatest video games of all time, Portal. It's got robots, Aperture Science Handheld Portal Devices, and GLaDOS' creepy synthesized voice that makes you excited and terrified at the same time.
