Portal2 boots trailer and comic

After immensely enjoying the original Portal (each time i played it) i went ahead and pre-ordered Portal2 on Steam(gave the free copy of Portal that comes with it to a friend). now just have to wait till 19th April to play it :D .. although it is pre-loading onto my machine as i write this

In the meantime, here's the roundup of some Portal 2 goodies i found this week

And last but not least the fantastic online comic at Portal2: Lab Rat which is an interesting prelude to the game.. or a filler between the two games!
this was an inhouse project handled by Michael Avon Oeming,
The Gorgeous art is by Andrea Wicklund, in collaboration with Michael Oeming, Ted Kosmatka, Erik Wolpaw, Jay Pinkerton, and Half-Life 2, Portal co-writer Chet Faliszek.

It tells the story of a sole survivor (referred to as "rat man") from the aperture labs research team.. and how he has to save Chell.. so that .. we there can be a sequel to the game that we can play :) .. it also gives us some insight into how GLaDOS evolved.. and fooled the scientists into providing her with the very neurotoxin she used to kill them all.

aaand its also downloadable as a pdf here, so do check it out!
