This is a triumph…

/ 8 years ago

What could overshadow the release of Half-Life 2 and Team Fortress 2 on one disc for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC? Introducing a “little” thrown in bonus title called PORTAL! This game is incredible and one of the most unique games to come out in recent years. When I describe Portal to people that don’t know, I say it is a “first person puzzle game” and then need to explain what that means. The basics of the game are the portal guns. Shoot a blue portal in one spot, shoot a orange portal in another spot and walk right thru from one to the other. Speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out!

Here it is, and nice and CHEAP! As of the posting of this auction this was only $2.99 including the shipping costs. If you don’t have this game, GET IT! I have the stand alone version of Portal thru Xbox Live which has a couple extras.

Feeling a bit dressy? Need a companion to the prom? Look no further than the Companion Cube Cufflinks! Your love cannot be separated!

Does your lady friend (you have a lady friend?) want to match your excellent cufflinks? Companion Cube Earrings are the way to go!

Ok, I am posting this one up as a warning… Why do people actually buy stuff off of eBay for more than the official site is selling it for? This auction lists this plush Companion Cube for $49.99 plus $7.99 shipping (total being $57.98) where as Valve.com has it for $29.95 plus $10.00 shipping (total being $39.95). I don’t get when people don’t check official sites first but to each their own! I just know I would rather buy from the source, especially at a lower price.

Some nice vinyl stickers. I know a TON of people make TONS of these on eBay, but I really dig the Cube and the Cake Love / Lies combo. Would look nice on opposite ends of my 91 Olds rear window.

This is NOT the same PORTAL but is actually an old Commodore 64 “game” that came out. I say “game” because by the sound of it, this “Portal” is more of a computer novel than a game.  Here is some info about the game but it basically sounds like they mixed on screen text stories with some text adventure style gaming from the days of old. Thought it would be a funny one to throw up on this celebration of portal.

and no celebration would be complete without cake!

***end celebration***
