Portal and Cake
I am so excited for Portal 2. I can’t contain my geekyself. PlayStation Qore had some videos on Portal 2 this month and the game looks amazing. The multiplayer looks like so much fun! Orange Box was one of the first video games I bought that wasn’t Rock Band or Guitar Hero. Half-Life 2 was one of the first shooter games I’d ever try to play solo. Well, I wasn’t very good and got mad and stopped playing it. (This was before I got into the Call of Duty games so I really should get it another go.) There was Team Fortress 2, which was an online game that was kind of fun and then there was Portal. It is more of a puzzle game which is why I liked it so much. It is hard enough without being so hard you want to throw your controller across the room and once you figure out of of the levels you feel like the smartest person ever. So, for some of you who are looking for a video game, give this one a chance. You can find the Orange Box for fairly cheap.
What you need to know about Portal:
1. The Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak.
2. The cake is a lie.
Some of you Rock Band Nerds will have Still Alive by GLaDOS download, which many of you know that is the end credit from Portal. But I of course had to post the video because I love the song and it makes me giggle.
