HIGH Clearing a level with eight seconds to spare.

LOW Being stuck in one stage for more than 45 minutes.

WTF Going through time and "cleaning up" after the villain by lining up shapes...makes sense, actually.

Video: Regular Guiseppe, The Third Mario Brother

Mario and Luigi have been busy the last couple of years. The 3DS has been crammed with all sorts of Mario-themed adventures from Mario Kart 7 to Super Mario 3D Land to Mario Tennis: Open—Luigi has even gotten his own sequel this year. Needless to say, the Mario Brothers are busy. But even so, does that make it okay to leave their other less-talented brother behind to man the shop. Doesn't he deserve some of the glory?

Video: Gordon Freeman meets with his agent

Recently released Half-Life concept art is rumored to belong to the very long-awaited Half-Life 2: Episode 3. The Internet briefly caught fire before the denials came down from Valve. Going by Dorkly's Half-Life spoof, whenever a sequel to the episodic games does come, Gordon Freeman is likely to remain a silent character.

Electronic Romance-flavored Cotton Candy

HIGH The clever dialogue when I figured out a puzzle without any clues.

LOW Replaying (and re-reading) the final scene four times trying to get it right.

WTF Why is there no option to quit and restart mid-chapter?

Video: Aperture: Lab Ratt

This fan film is called Aperture: Lab Ratt and made by Synthetic PictureHaus. It is based on the Valve comic called Lab Rat. Lab Rat told the story of an Aperture scientist named Doug Rattman, who apparently was one of the only survivors after GLaDOS's take over. Rattman was responsible for placing Chell (heroine of Portal) at the top of the list of test subject candidates that GLaDOS was to use and he also provided clues and warnings "behind the walls" of the Test Chambers for Chell to follow. Truly an important man whose story had to be told.
