Uncovered voice files reveal how Valve makes games funny

Comedy is hard at the best of times, in a video game, it can be damn near impossible (looking at you Matt Hazard). The magical elixir of expectation, subversion, and timing that makes a joke funny is hard to nail down when working against t...

Portal's 'Still Alive' sounds very Disney with a full choir

Portal's beloved "Still Alive" is a quirky anti-epic, so giving it the full choir treatment just kind of sounds like a '90s Disney tune, even when the rest of the voices (backup singing villagers or something) jump in halfway through. Techn...

Super Source Bros. Melee

What if Valve made their own Super Smash Bros. game, but with characters from Dota 2, Half-Life, Portal, Counter-Strike, and Left 4 Dead? What if?!

Portal on Nvidia Shield next week, Half-Life 2 coming too

Hey, have you played Portal before? It's supposed to be pretty neat. I won't spoil anything for you, but there's a lady that's really funny and she talks about a cake. On the off-chance that you have played it, do you want to play it a...

GlaDOS kills everyone in this live-action Portal short

Is GlaDOS killing everyone really a spoiler? Anyway, this live action Portal short is fairly well done. Some nice lighting. A scientist gets exaggeratedly bumped into so he can spill papers off a walkway so the floating papers can be shot ...

Beautiful infographic charts all of Valve's voice actors

I'm a sucker for a good infographic. You can take something ordinary and uninteresting, like a list of all 50 actors who have provided voice work for Valve's 174 characters, and make something magical. It becomes an adventure, tracing lines...

Behold, Portal 2's freakish Frankenturret brought to life

The Frankenturret, as they're officially called, are the Portal 2 turrets merged with a weighted storage cube. Wheatley had fun creating them in the game, and I'm sure artist corroder666 had fun making the Frakenturret in real life. Best o...

ThreeA shows off their Portal 2 and Lost Planet figures

ThreeA toys showed off their Portal 2 Atlas and P-Body concepts nearly a year ago, and since then we haven't heard a thing about them. That was until at the ThreeA event held at Beast Kingdom Toys in Taiwan recently. Personally I'd like cle...

Games to play with your boyfriend on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day isn't always about getting taken out to dinner and receiving fancy treats and trinkets. Okay, well maybe it is, but who's to say that you can't get a little gaming on the side? Consider spending some quality time with your b...

Do want! Homebrew Portal gameplay on the DS

The rubber band trick in SW:BF2 reminds me of how my friend used to get many extra lives in Contra 3: at stage 3 miniboss w/ the searchlight, place both PCs at the screen edges, put something on the fire buttons, go watch a movie to pass
