I cannot get round portal one, what chance 2!?

Speaking of which the orange box collection rules, I simply love Team fortress 2! ..so reminds me of Spy vs Spy on the old spectrum!
No, i'm not back.

I played the original Portal several months back (I think it was on sale, or free for a short time). What was seemingly a simple puzzle game, gradually introduced more story and humor. Makes you think, while keeping you entertained. I loved it. It's a short game and can leave you craving more.

So I was excited to pick up Portal 2. And last week I just completed the single player campaign. Took me 9-10 hours, and I was actually sad to see it end. With new game mechanics, more complex environments, and an even deeper back-story to uncover, I think it's even better than the original.

The acting (for the robot voice-overs) is well done and performed by actors you might recognize like Stephen Merchant and J.K. Simmons. You're continually using your portal gun to solve test chambers to get to the exit, but the story and voices make sure you never get fatigued.

Plus, the game saves your progress after each puzzle, so it's a good game to pick up and play whenever you have a little extra time to kill. But if you're like me, you'll probably be up all night, always saying "one more test chamber, and then I'll call it a night... ok, maybe ONE more..."

I adore Portal 2 - and I think I proved it yesterday. I added tattoo number 15 to my ever growing collection! I go the Aperture Science logo :D

Aperture Science. We do what we must because we can. For the good of all of us. Except the ones who are dead.

I'm a big fan of both games. Clearly you've proven yourself a devoted test subject yourself. So where's a photo of the finished tattoo? Don't tell me the above photo is your skin, because I don't believe you can be that pale.

Sorry, forgot to post a pic! It needs touched up as I really bled with this one (that's what happens when you get a tattoo with a hangover kids!), and the pic's a bit twisted because of it's position AND I took the pic myself, but I'm sure you'll agree the background rocks ;)

You shouldn't have taken a picture with ZP in the background... how will anyone be able to concentrate on the tattoo. 8) Just kidding, that's great. Any geek you come across should be able to recognize the inspiration. Don't be surprised if strangers start tempting you with the promise of cake.

You could carve it on a pumpkin real easily. I never played the game though. I do however know a way to make a portal gun prop for $20.00(I think) if anybody is interested.
