You guys have heard of Kim Swift, right? Creator of Portal, former designer at Valve, and all-around badass? I interviewed her last week after getting some hands-on time with Airtight Games's upcoming downloadable title ...

I had the pleasure of working through my first Quantum Conundrum play session with the help of its Creative Director, Kim Swift. After helping create Valve hit games Portal and both Left 4 Dead titles, Swift moved onto Airtight Games to bring this dimensional shifting delight to us.

I'm thankful that she was on hand at a Microsoft press event to help me push through some of the brain-twisting puzzle rooms in the very first hands-on session with the game. I'm also grateful that she tried stifling some of her laughter at my mistakes. Some

Free Portal 2 DLC on Steam, Xbox 360, and PS3 next month photo
Free Portal 2 DLC on Steam, Xbox 360, and PS3 next month
by Jordan Devore

The long-awaited free add-on content for Portal 2 has been in the works for what feels like a long time, but Valve has reassuring news on that front: it's hitting Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Steam next month. And by "next month," I mean October 4. That's this Tuesday!

The "Peer Review" DLC is spread across more missions for P-Body and Atlas, and hey, GLaDOS is in there too. There are also leaderboard-centric single-player and co-op Challenge Missions.

I can understand someone saying that September is still technically summer, but October? Not on my watch, sir. Although it's Portal 2, and it's free ... so I'm just going to shut my mouth so we can continue to receive nice things. Nice things like more music from the soundtrack.

Yay for learning! Portal is free until September 20th photo
Yay for learning! Portal is free until September 20th
by Maurice Tan

It's fun enough to learn to think with portals, but there's arguably little in existence that is more fun than learning with the Portal games as an educational tool. As long as you don't have to hear that damn song ever again. Because the people at Valve know this, just like they know the deepest secrets of our little consumer hearts, they are offering the first Portal for free on Steam -- until September 20th, that is.

If you want to learn more about their programme for using these games in education, check out their special website or watch the video above. Thanks Valve, even though I think everyone and their grandmother already owns Portal. If not, here's yet another chance to add it to your Steam collection for the grand total of nothing. (Psst, it works on a Mac too.)

[Also thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
