This just ties in perfectly with our post about the Portal cakes a few days ago. Someone has gone along and made a nice little fan-film involving the production of cake, complete with good old GLaDOS. It even includes the actual in-game recipe forPortalcakes! Check it out after the jump.
I don’t really post geeky cakes that often, but this one is just too perfect to pass up. It’s everything aPortalcake should be, capturing every aspect of the in-game cake and the portal effects perfectly. Hit the jump to see more photos.
Apparently what you’re looking at above is the test render for a full-length animated short by Alex Zemke, based on Portal. It’s not likely the Pixar boys will ever adapt Portal into a film, so this is the best we’ll get. Can’t wait to see the video.
This made my morning. Some intrepid filmmakers decided to go have some fun and make a 21-minute documentary about what life would be like to work at everyone’s favorite testing center, Aperture Science. I don’t often laugh at fan-made videos, but this got a few genuine laughs out of me. Check out the video after the jump.
Once again, there is no reason to not own Portal. Why are you’re still reading this? I have nothing else to say to you. If you don’t own it already, go
buy download it now.
It’s almost Halloween time and that means time to start planning out your costume. While looking around today I found these guys and their freaking amazing Lego JLA costumes. They really ARE my heroes for this. Check out the video here.

You might remember a short while back when we featured the absolutely spectacular short film by Dan Trachtenburg based on Portal, “Portal: No Escape.” Well get ready to re-live the awesomeness of it, because now Dan’s put out a “making-of” featurette for the short, and it’s an absolutely joy to watch. Check it after the jump.
