So full disclosure: I do write about games professionally now on other sites.
I'm not usually in the habit of pimping my work here. However, I discovered something in my last piece that seems to be a worthwhile chunk of gaming history. Since I tend to write for mainstream outlets, this element of my peice that I feel would be meaningful to gamers didn't seem to gain notice from gaming sites, despite the article being extremely successful (it was a Top News Story on Twitter for two days and reached the top spot on Digg the morning of it's release.)
So I am posting about it here.
During a profile I did of GLaDOS voice actress Ellen McLain and her husband John Patrick Lowrie (The Sniper from Team Fortress 2) for VICE's Motherboard I happened to discover a song that they had made that was meant as an Easter egg for Portal 2. It's called "GLaDOS Song" and is sung in the persona of GLaDOS and set in the world of Portal. We ended up booking a studio thanks to Motherboard and recording the song afresh. Thought I'd share it here as I feel like, had I not discovered it, I would want to know that it exists simply as a fan.
Here's a link to the profile with the song embedded in it: GLaDOS and the Sniper: A Voice Acting Love Story.
