Valve (Left 4 Dead, Half Life) has joined forces with SteelSeries (many gaming peripherals) to bring you gaming peripherals featuring some of Valves top games. They already have stuff for Diablo, check out the pictures past the break. But we can expect more Valve games to get the same treatment in the future. Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress, etc.
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
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
