Valve to release Portal 2 level editor May 8 photo



Starting next month, the possibilities for portal puzzles become as infinite as spaaaaaaaaace.

Valve has announced a new update for Portal 2 which will arrive on May 8. The "Perpetual Testing Initiative" will give players the capability to make their own puzzles using a simplified, built-in level editor. The editor will also be able to publish levels directly to the Steam Workshop for others to download and rate. A select group of puzzles made with the Perpetual Testing Initiative will also be made available directly within the Portal 2 game.

Obviously, this DLC is only releasing on the PC and Mac versions of Portal 2, proving once again that there are just some things a console isn't good enough for. Go forth, minions. Provide me with enough spatial puzzles to last me a lifetime. So mote it be.

This was the most WTF moment of PAX Prime 2013

At first I thought this was going to be an animtronic prop when I came across it at PAX Prime 2013 today. And then I saw the arms moving and realized it's a real person. Perhaps it was inspired by this art piece?  In any case, this was the most WTF moment of any PAX I've ever been too. more
