Portal Gun Shootout

Valve’s Portal is one of the all-time great puzzle games ever made—a first-person shooter in which you use a gun that fires in and out portals you’ll need to work with in order to try to escape the facility you’re being held in.

But what if word of Aperture Science’s gun got out and a consumer version was made available to the masses? Surely YouTube would benefit the most, with countless funny or mind-boggling videos made using the devices being uploaded as people experimented. Then there’s the less positive side of things…

In an impressive and hilarious new video, a heated confrontation escalates quickly into an all-out portal gun firefight, and it’s to no one’s benefit. You can watch it below.

Steam Box/Steam Machine Console and Controller

For those who are not yet aware, the popular digital PC gaming platform from Valve Corporation, Steam, is making the jump to consoles in what hopes to be the future of gaming. A console for PC gamers with PC graphics that is known as Steam Box or Steam Machine.

It won’t be until sometime next year when we can get our hands on one, and it’s not yet known how much one will run you, but early versions of the system have been sent out for testing to current Steam users. One such user has been documenting their experience on YouTube, giving us a solid look at multiple games and what they could look like on the console, as well as what it looks like using the Steam Box controller.

Click on over to the other side now to see the Steam Box/Steam Machine and its controller in action, and be sure to share your thoughts on how the system is looking and if you’ll buy one!

Half-Life Image

If you pay attention to entertainment news headlines even just a little bit, then you’ve noticed the name J.J. Abrams quite often lately. Whether it’s his upcoming mega-sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the recent announcement that after Trek he’ll hop over to Star Wars Episode VII, or various other bits that may be reported, it’s a name we see often.

At the D.I.C.E. Summit for video game designers and developers in Las Vegas recently, Abrams and Valve Software co-founder and president Gabe Newell announced that they are working on movie adaptations of two massively popular Valve games, Half-Life and Portal.
