Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back."

Portacular!

So, for anyone who hasn't played the excellent Portal or its recent successor Portal 2, this short film nicely captures the emotional vibe of the experience, with the exception that in the game, you're the only living organic being* around:



And as a side note: I think the ending of Portal 2 may have been the most emotionally meaningful experience that I've ever had in a video game. And, let's face it, I like me some gaming, so that's saying something.


* As distinguished from living inorganic beings. Just because artificial intelligences aren't made of meat, doesn't mean they aren't alive. Or, as it may be, still alive.**

** Yeah, that's an in-joke. What do you want from me?
