Now you’re thinking without portals.

Valve recently updated their epic “shooter” Portal with a sneaky, and almost viral, prelude to it’s next game, Portal 2. (And apparently has removed the update from the update system, so people who didn’t update during the time don’t get it.) Again, it made me think in portals. How to launch myself with portals, how to launch physics objects with portals, how to redirect missiles with portals, how to shit with portals, and finally how to piss off rogue AI’s with portals.

THE PROBLEM is trying to get back to thinking normally once you’ve spent more than a few hours at a time portal-hopping through this world. You constantly feel like your vision SHOULD be spinning, and almost lose balance existing in a world without portals.

Anyways, this post is a little late, but still epic.
