Go buy “Portal 2”


I just finished playing through “Portal 2” by Valve Software. It’s a hilarious first-person shooter (FPS) without a real gun. There’s no killing, there’s no living enemies, just you as a woman stuck in a giant testing lab run by a homicidal computer, trying to solve puzzles to get out. Your only gun is a portal gun, a quantum tunneling device that lets you place two portals in two different places, and you can step through one to emerge from the other without crossing the space between. It’s a wonderful blend of alternate history, physics and cybernetic sarcasm that will keep you playing for many hours.

Look up “Portal 2 gameplay” on YouTube to see how it works. You might like it. I certainly do.
