More Mega Man Mashups

Many Many Mega Men by DeviantArtist captainslam


It’s no secret that I can’t get enough Mega Man in my life.  So anytime someone like captainslam here is going to go to the effort of putting together a buttload of fan art, AAAAND throw a bunch of my favorite games of all-time into the mix, I’m going to take notice.  Well played, sir.


Portal 2 Co-op in Action

Kotaku’s got 4 levels of Portal 2 video to show off some co-op action.

The co-op campaign is a standalone adventure that will be double the length of Portal 1. It’s part of Portal 2, which is coming out in February on PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360. In co-op, two players can link up via the Internet, split-screen or through a local connection. Each controls a test robot, and each robot will be armed with a portal gun that can shoot two portals. As they did in Portal 1, the portal guns fire an entry and an exit portal. You need to use the portals to get out of the locked rooms and deathtraps you keep finding yourselves in. Because there are two players and two guns, co-op players will be able to create a total of four portals, but player 1’s portals will be linked only to each other, player 2’s to just his or her own.

Not sure I smell what you’re cooking with that last sentence about the portal linkage, but I’m certainly going take a look.  2 players and a bunch of new mechanics are fixin’ to have the game’s puzzles giving you the brain pain in 2011.

This is a Triumph: DIY Portals in Your House!

As an optional test protocol, we are pleased to present an amusing fact. The IKEA mirror you purchased for $6.99 is now more valuable than the organs and combined incomes of everyone in New York City.

DO WANT.  Only thing is I can’t decide whether to put the orange one in the bathroom or the refrigerator.  There’s cake in there!

Portal 2 is due out next year (although I’m about ready for it now please), and was declared by a bunch of reviewers to be one of the best games at E3 2010.  If you never played the first one, it’s a smart, exceptionally well-designed puzzler/platformer created by Valve, available for PC via Steam and consoles via XBLA or PSN for around $15.  Go get it NAO.

Those of you familiar with the first game may want to check out the videos below, which introduces some of the new puzzle mechanics you’ll be dealing with in Portal 2 (there are a bunch!).

Portal 2 is also on Facebook because that’s what video games do these days I guess?
