Other Ten Percent 4/20/11

Apr 20 2011

What? No I totally didn’t get distracted beating Portal 2 and then beating it again with the developer commentary on in the space of 24 hours. I…got high…because 4/20? Wait no that’s worse and obviously a lie. I played Portal all day and now it’s 11:15 and so let’s do this thing.

Watch the secret J.J. Abrams video hidden inside Portal 2
So io9 doesn’t usually get things wrong like this but what makes this so weird/awesome is that it isn’t a video hidden in Portal 2 it’s a full on interactive level. I kinda think Super 8 is just an elaborate experiment in marketing and then the movie’s just going to be a series of trailers for other JJ Abrams projects. Also guys…Portal 2 is really good. Like probably the best non-Doctor Who science fiction you’re going to get in any media this year and also it’s really funny.
