Everyone pay very close attention to the trailer past the break. I look at it as a huge hint towards making your way through the DLC. The new DLC is known as ‘In Motion’. In Motion however is a Playstation 3, Playstation Move exclusive. Yes you heard right. It was designed specifically for the Playstation Move. And it looks damn complicated. You’ll be able to portal surf, scale objects, among many other new crazy tricks. Sixense Studios who are behind the creation of In Motion are also working on making the entire game Playstation Move compatible. Once the DLC is released it will run you $9.99. Check out the trailer past the break.
I’m not. Well, probably not. If you own Portal 2, a Mac, or a PC, I’ve got some exciting news. Valve has announced the Portal 2 Perpetual Testing Initiative. Basically it’s a super streamlined level/puzzle builder for Portal 2. People have already created tons of them, but the process of sharing isn’t that easy. This will make it very easy to create and share with anyone and everyone. Just hop on to the puzzle maker, create your masterpiece and publish it to the workshop for your friends to play and be stumped.
We just saw the live action MASS EFFECT TRAILER. It’s awesome. The video below is a “fan” film made by director Dan Trachtenberg. Podcast fans might know him from The Totally Rad Show podcast. It came out back in August, but I just saw it for the 1st time and thought I’d share it with you guys. Another great example that shows us good video game movies are possible.
Thanks to the ever lovely Comcast my internet is down and I am tethering
my phones 4G in an attempt to stay up on the latest happenings on the intarwebz. So I here by appoint Sir Adam of Dodd the temporary Dead Pixels Editor In Chief until my triumphant return. Until then I will be giving you clever little fill in articles that my ghetto connection can handle. Like this video that the wonderous Jonathan Barkan sent me. Enjoy!
That’s about how I feel when a couple of kick ass games come out at the same time. READ MORE
With legions of fans waiting to jump back into Chell’s spring heels and pick up an Aperture portal gun, Valve has delivered the goods once again with Portal 2, giving players the level design, puzzles and top-notch script they craved. But Valve went one step further, delivering an interactive trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 as an extra on the PC version. I couldn’t find it on my PS3 copy (… yet) so I’m not sure if it’s packed in with console ports or not (the PS3 version comes with a code for a PC/MAC download of the game through Steam for “cloud” integration for save files, so there’s that). The short “game” places you on a train as a passenger and allows you to witness the crash from the theatrical trailer. Kotaku posted a play-through with a commentary which you can check out beyond the break.
Portal 2′s release is just around the corner. The corner that is this weekend. Let me ask you, do you like boots? What about super boots? Well the video below shows you some super awesome boots that basically make you like a cat.
I’m very much looking forward to the games release, as I am also looking forward to getting super nerdy and showing off my puzzle solving skills to a certain Mr. Adam Dodd. Portal 2 releases on April 19th for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. READ MORE
Word on the virtual streets (the internet) is that Tripwire Interactive has released a Portal 2 like map for Killing Floor. Oh, and it’s free. So if you haven’t played in a while, now is a good chance to hop back on there and try it out! Screens past the break!
Portal nerdos can get pumped that on April 21st Portal 2 will be released for the Mac, PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. In Portal 2 you are back in new areas of Aperture Science Labs, GLaDOS, there is now co-op so you and a friend can rack your brains to figure out puzzles together. Below you can watch a sweet viral video (in French) and looks very much like it could have been in WALL-E.
“Portal 2 is Valve’s most innovative title in the company’s history and will be launched with a first-class launch campaign this April,” said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve. “We’re excited to be working with Electronic Arts to deliver this title as we expand our platform strategy to include the Mac and PlayStation 3 platforms.” READ MORE
It’s understandable if you missed the awards show this year, perhaps you were busy reading a particularly interesting book, watching a good movie or simply had better things to do. I don’t blame you for having a life but it’d be a shame to miss out on all the goods this year’s VGAs had to offer. Many we expected, some were rumored and a few managed to surprise (Elder Scrolls V!).
