Afternoon Valve Nonsense Round-Up

It seems churlish not to link to all this madness.

First up, it’s TF2 in Lego!

Lego makes everything at least 45% better.

Follow the link, as there’s lots more of these, and it’s obligatory that you look at them.

Next, how about a Weighted Companion Cube made of balloons?

Too much effort.

But surely a red marker would have made all the difference?

And finally, for this afternoon at least, it was friend-of-RPS Craig’s birthday yesterday. As his housemate, it was only fitting that I, and another housemate, put together some sort of appropriate cake. PC Gamer have posted a pic and a story about it on their blog here. But they didn’t post this pic, did they? (Answer: no).

Just imagine how great it must be to know me.

    You never cook a cake for your RPS friends, John.

    We’re not hurt.


  2. Evo says:

    I want that cake…looks so damn good :D

  3. Alex says:

    I doesn’t look so good in the picture on that PC Gamer blog.. looks much better on the picture above.

    Was the cake actually baked from the recipe GLADoS spouts in the game?

  4. Cigol says:

    On the PC Gamer blog it looks as if you’ve sprinkled it with saw dust :D

  5. Asif says:

    That balloon WCC looks terrifying. It’s like some sort of brain creature with beady eyes and heart-shaped pupils.

  6. Mouj says:

    What is that cake made of ? That’d be the real question…

  7. Mouj says:

    Awww… that little post over at PC Gamer is so moving :)

  8. Seniath says:

    The Demoman has two eyes…travesty!

  9. Max says:

    TF2 Lego = Cool
    More Portal crap = Can’t take it any more.

    The Lego Engineer’s sentry gun is amazing. Wow.

    I love the lego guys! :D

  11. dartt says:

    He didn’t really make a cake KG. The baked confection is a fabrication.

  12. Flint says:

    You can also find a Balloon Cake from the same guy:

    From the PC Gamer blog that accompanies this:

    “This is it. This is the moment where touching commences.”

    Oh, how i laughed…

  14. Alan Au says:

    What, no fish shaped ethyl benzene?

  15. Suraj says:

    The cake is a photoshop lie !

    While I’ve grown extremely tired of the ubiquitous Portal meme we all know, I actually found that particular invention totally awesome.
