Someone at ThinkGeek really enjoyed Portal 2

11:00 PM on 12.02.2011 // Jordan Devore

ThinkGeek is making good use of its licensing agreement with Valve by introducing nine Portal 2-themed products. We're a little obsessed with the game as well, so it's all good.

I was quite certain nothing would top the ridiculousness of the talking Cave Johnson portrait, but we have a new king: "military-grade" shower curtains. There's even a video demonstration!

Take a look for yourself. The rest of the line-up includes a Companion Cube cookie jar, cookie cutters, bookends, an adorable plush turret, LED flashlights, and a PotatOS Science Kit. A couple of items are listed as being "available soon," though one can assume everything will be ready in time for the holidays.

●     Aperture Laboratories Shower Curtain - At long last, fans of Aperture Laboratories can put their hands on the product that started it all: military-grade shower curtains.  ThinkGeek presents gamers with their very own Aperture Science shower curtain to transform their bathroom into a test chamber.  This collectible curtain is available now for $19.99.

●     Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar - A replica of the Weighted Companion Cube that makes a prominent appearance as an inanimate, but lovable, puzzle solving device in the original Portal.  Available soon for $29.99.

●     Portal Cookie Cutters - Of course, a cookie jar without cookies is like an empty test chamber in your soul.  So fill up your new Companion Cube Cookie Jar with delicious treats inspired by the "warning signs" featured in the game.  The Portal Cookie Cutters feature an all metal construction and come in a collectible Companion Cube tin.  Available now for $19.99.

●     Portal Bookends - 4”x5” solid metal bookends to maintain the vertical orientation your impressive collection of science textbooks.  One end shows the Portal test subject icon entering through an orange entry portal, while the other end shows him exiting through a blue exit portal.  Available now for $29.99.

●     Portal 2 Plush Turret with Sound -  A classic character from Portal video game series, this Turret features motion detection, light, sound and vibration. When sensing motion, the Portal 2 Plush Turret reacts with voice and simulated machine gun fire. To "disable" it, you just tip it over like you would in the game.  Start assembling your Turret army for just $34.99.

●     Wheatley LED Flashlight -  A 2” tall version of the smart talking Wheatley character, simply push a button, and a super-bright LED flashlight emanates from Wheatley's "eye" to illuminate your surroundings. Available now for $19.99.

●     Portal 2 PotatOS Science Kit - Create your own GLaDOS with a PotatOS Science Kit including electronic talking GLaDOS module. You provide the potato and some simple assembly.  Even Wheatley could do it.  Available soon for $29.99.

●     Portal Turret LED Flashlight with Sound - Standing just 3” tall, this intricately detailed replica of the Turret enemies will light your way with a red LED beam, emanating from the Turret’s eye.  With a push of the button on the side, you can hear the turret talk, just like in the game. Available now for $24.99.

●     Portal 2 Cave Johnson Talking Portrait - The most amazing man ever, Cave Johnson, founder of Aperture, repeats his famous motivational quotes from Portal 2. Suitable decoration for any room or test chamber in your home.  Available now for $39.99.

When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!

I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?

Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.

Community Question: Following from yesterday's Community Question, how would you feel if reviewers began assigning two scores to a game? One specifically for the technical aspects/performance of the game, and the other for their own personal enjoyment?

I went back to Persona 4 Golden this weekend, asked Chie to be my girlfriend but then accidentally maxed out my social link with Yumi, changed my relationship status to "It's Complicated" on Personabook. [img][/img]

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

Well, it seemed like for two seconds people were finally going to give Star Fox a fair shake, but nope! GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics. Sometimes I just don't understand peopl

I don't think it will happen, but if the NX is turns out to be a VR device, I will be the saddest boy in the milky way.

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering
