The Week in Review - Portals, Pirates and Paladins

On this week's edition, we're perplexed by puzzling portals and pirates find it tough to find dates.

Columbia Unmasks Spider-Man

Who is it under Spider-Man's mask? Well, in the upcoming movie reboot it's going to be British actor Andrew Garfield. Garfield will play a young Peter Parker who is still in high school, and must deal with the classes and homework as well as his new found arachnid powers. We've got a while to see how he does though, as the movie won't be out until 2012. (link)


The Puzzling Parts of Portal 2

You loved Portal, right? Of course you did, everyone did. (Apologies if you did not) There's not a lot that's more fun than racing along Propulsion Gel, getting catapulted into the air by a Aerial Faith Plate and landing in an Excursion Funnel which carries you to the door. What's that, you don't remember any of those things? Oh, silly me, that's because I'm talking about Portal 2. Whoops, sorry. Hit the link to see what I'm talking about. (link)


Exhibit A: A Level 76 Paladin

What happens online, stays online, right? Wrong, because online evidence is increasingly being used in divorce courts. Normally it's inappropriate Facebook content that makes its way to the stand, but if you spend too much time gaming, that can hurt you as well. Get your priorities mixed up and that rare drop could end up costing you more than just an evening of raiding. (link)


"Mean Mickey" Nixed From Game

If you were looking forward to being a villainous Mickey Mouse, complete with a mean look, then sadly, you're out of luck. While upcoming Wii title Epic Mickey will still allow you to be a meaner Mickey than usual, the "snarling rat" image was removed after focus testers responded badly. "We're not going to change Mickey's image so much," said developer Warren Spector. "People don't like it when you mess with Mickey." (link)


Sim Girls Won't Give Lovin' to Pirates

LovePlus+ has a simple goal, romance a young lady until the two of you, y'know, get physical. That simple goal is made a lot more difficult however, if you decided that you're going to pirate the game; so difficult in fact, that it's outright impossible. The DRM in LovePlus+ means that pirates will never see their affections returned, a system which is simultaneously devious, ingenious and hilarious. (link)

The Portal 2 thing looks like its going to break peoples minds, lol

And...as for the Sim girls...that is hilarious!

1- Meh basically.
2- *looks at my brains on the floor* Now look what youve done.
3- That would be a funny thing for a lawyer to say or do...
4- I wont be happy untill they put that Suicidal mickey into it.
5- Nice, thats is awesome that DRM thing. 5 bucks says Shamus has some sort of Article on it...

At #5: Can it be!? A good DRM exists!?

Mind=Blown

Someone said Andrew Garfield is like 28... and hes playing a high-school student, and chances are they haven't started filming yet, sheesh hes probably gonna be 30 before the movie even comes out, what the hell Hollywood?

So let me get rigth to the point: Fuck You FOCUS TEST GROUPS.

Thanks for your attention.

Portal 2 is going to mind fuck me, but it will be fun. Can't wait!

Mr. Gency:

The problem is...it could be cracked very easily. The good news is...it's on the DS, so a crack popping up is unlikely or going to take a while.

The portal sounds fairly interesting.
