    Damnit, after a really long week of all those things, I was left wondering why the audience was laughing.

    Then, after an age had passed…

    PORTAL!

    Aww man, I replayed it last week!

  2. Mike says:

    Lovely. Where was that at?

  3. fluffy bunny says:

    Quality stuff. And he’s so right.

    Well, I’m assuming the design team can appreciate that kind of complement from the man who brought you A Mind Forever Voyaging, a game that failed as political commentary in the Reagan 80s, but became a classic in design. If they can’t, well, rumor has it Sarge was smoking Mindex long before he splattered on the terminal velocity achievement.

    Did anybody else play Space Bar? That game kinda blew my mind in an idea-way back in the day. I never did beat it. But it’s sitting not ten feet from me, so maybe I will yet.

  6. Man Raised By Puffins says:

    Heh, nice.

    @Mike: Boston Post Mortem according to Google Video.
