Portal 2 Review and Gameplay Videos

I had originally thought about posting a Portal 2 video game trailer before the game came out, but it was shown a lot on TV, so I opted to wait until the game was released before talking about it. Naturally, I wondered whether the game would flop or exceed the high standards the first game set. It did the latter, and top video game reviewer gave it a 9.5, rated higher than its predecessor.

Essentially, Portal 2 is a first person science fiction puzzle game. You use a portal gun to travel from one place to the next to solve puzzles. There also are new puzzle elements introduced. It's available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Here is IGN's review of the game:

Here's a video showing the gameplay from Portal 2:

Easter Bunny and Boba Fett

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!

Here's an Easter-related picture I found:

I guess chibi Boba Fett from Star Wars needs the bunny alive to collect on the bounty.

It can be tough submitting your writing for publication, but don't get discouraged if you keep getting rejections. Editors and publishers have different likes and dislikes. You should also keep a record of your submissions.

He also gives helpful websites. One such website is, which lists science fiction and other speculative fiction markets.

Odd News and Transformers

A saw a video of odd news from Yahoo News that I'm going to share. It includes an alleged sighting of a Bigfoot as well as the existence of a Chupacabra being debunked. There also is a man named Moses Lanham Jr. who can turn his feet backward.

Lastly, Drew Beaumier wants to market his "morph machines," or Transformers suits, that can transform and drive. Beaumier was on American Idol with the suit. It's good to know that the science fiction cartoon and now movie series Transformers has such a devoted fan. I'm sure he gets lots of photo opportunities.

Do you remember Greg Proops from the Whose Line Is It Anyway? show (hopefully you've watched it)? Well he's the anchor, so he puts a funny twist on the odd news. Here's the video:

And since Beaumier is the star of the video, as a tribute to him, here's a trailer for the next Transformers movie coming to theaters July 1.
