We get our first look at the debut game Valve was working on before focusing on "Quiver," the project which would eventually become the first-person shooter we all know as Half-Life.
This amazing, fan-made mod switches out the Portal Gun for one that lets you slip, slide and bounce across each stage of Aperture Science.
When ThreeA revealed it would be bringing Aperture's test robots to life in sixth-scale, I immediately got excited. After getting my hands on them, I'm pretty thrilled with the results, even if there are a few flaws.
Though video game licenses aren't where ThreeA built its brand, that's certainly where some of the company's most impressive collectibles have come from. Originally started as a joint collaboration between Kim Fung Wong and Ashley Wood, ThreeA has expanded from publishing and manufacturing high-end books and figures based on Wood's designs into the likes of Metal Gear Solid, Portal 2, Halo and more. At Toy Fair this year, ThreeA had a host of massive creations on display, each of which is more impressive than the last.
Today's Cosplay of the Day is in the name of science! Behold our silent heroine, Chell, from Portal.
There are plenty of protagonists in video games that have no voice of their own. Despite this over abundance of mute heroes, few are actually remembered and revered the same way Portal and Portal 2's Chell is by fans. It's curious then that it's taken so long for her to get her own action figure.
She may not be an actual person, but imagining GLaDOS as a human being is both scary and totally cool.
