the portal flash version mappack.

Hen Mazolski deserves a mention.  Given my newfound enthusiasm for all things Portal-related — I downloaded Mazolski’s Flash Version Mappack.  

Which is totally worth it — this guy understands what the game — and its puzzles are all about.  Set in a time before the original Portal — you set about doing what good test subjects do — defy GladOS and solve puzzles.  (In seemingly-interconnected chambers, much like Portal.)

There’s even a different endboss that, well … I won’t spoil you with.  Kudos to Hen Mazolski and the fun little afternoon.

Requirements:

  • A copy of Portal
  • A Portal mindset

Get it here.

that portal thing.

Better late than etc…

Okay, so I’m hooked on Portal.  It’s been a year since The Orange Box was released — it’s time to get in on the fun!  (And boy was I missing out!)  

What is it?

Portal is a single-player first-person shooter action game / video puzzle game developed by Valve. The game was released in a bundle package known as The Orange Box for PC and Xbox 360 on October 10 2007, and for the PlayStation 3 on December 3 2007. The Microsoft Windows version of the game is also available for download separately through Steam. The game consists of a series of puzzles which must be solved by teleporting the player’s character and other simple objects using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. The goal of each puzzle is to reach an exit point. The “portal gun” and the unusual physics it creates are the emphasis of this game.

mk vs dc: batman’s the star!

Isn’t it quite obvious?  Midway/DC thinks that Batman is the star in MK vs DC!  Why else would he be at the forefront (and be the first one in those demo videos) of the game cover?  Supes is waaaaay in the back.

Plus, why is he suddenly paired up against Scorpion?  What happened to those teaser images/video?  The one where he’s getting beat up by Sub-Zero?

batman: arkham asylum game.

If you didn’t know, Batman, being the iconic character that he is, HAS NOT yet received the proper video game treatment.  A majority of previous bat-games has been reputed to be horrible examples of video game development.  (Batman and Robin, anyone?)

(Don’t believe me?  Check out AVGN Batman 1 & Batman part 2)

Mikko just sent me some images from the new Bat-game that’s being developed by Eidos and Rocksteady, entitled Batman: Arkham Asylum.  True, graphics are never in any way a promise of good gameplay, but seeing this?  It sure looks like their doing right by Batman.  Coming to the PS3, XBox360 and PC in 2009.

max payne movie trailer.

‘Twas 1997 when I first came across Max Payne.

The game got released almost four years later (2001) … and it was good.  By 2003, we got a sequel (that played shorter) and it was still good.

So the other day, the trailer for the movie, starring Mark Wahlberg (as Max Payne) officially hit.  Will it feature the same “drug-addicts-killed-my-family-so-I’m-trading-the-suits-with-a-bad-ass-leather-coat-to-shoot-my-way-from-the-underworld-to-the-top-monologuing-noir-style-in-stylish-slow-mo-flair,” (pill-popping on the side) awesomeness?  (Okay, so I’m a bit confused with the whole angel/supernatural bit.)  Guess we’ll have to wait.

BTW, Mila Kunis plays Mona Sax.  (We all know what happens in the sequel lol)

dc universe online trailer.

With all the hype surrounding THAT other game with DC characters, it’s easy to overlook this other game in development.

It seems like they’re taking a Matrix Online approach — so instead of being any one of the members of the JLA, you’re this new up-and-coming hero who fights alongside Batman, Superman, etc.

The cool thing about it is, the overall creative director for this game is Jim Lee — so here’s your chance to see 3D representations of his work, in game form.

The video from here. The game’s myspace page here.
