Valve Reanimates Left 4 Dead Shockingly Early, Sequel Later This Year

Valve Reanimates Left 4 Dead Shockingly Early, Sequel Later This Year
Valve isn’t really known for pumping out sequels at lightning pace, like a lot of game companies, so despite all of the bigger news coming out of E3, this is certainly one of the surprises. Not only are they preparing a sequel to the wildly popular zombie game Left 4 Dead, but it’s coming out this fall–only a year after the original.

Grabbin’ Snacks: Left 4 Dead Cookies

Grabbin’ Snacks: Left 4 Dead Cookies
It’s really difficult to fight hordes of zombies without some serious snacks. You’ve got to keep your energy up, after all, and most of us don’t find random bottles of energizing pills around… so instead, we eat cookies.

Portal Cross Stitch Promotes Safety in Science

Portal Cross Stitch Promotes Safety in Science
Oh, Portal, why can’t I quit you? The adorable Aperture Science safety diagrams probably have a lot to do with it. Keep your cute little Weighted Companion Cubes; I want to decorate my house with the signs.

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt
I’ve seen a lot of geeky shirts, but these ones take the cake. Or not. Think Geek‘s April Fools offering for this year are “interactive portal shirts”, that mimic the portal effect popularized by Valve’s first-person puzzler.

Aperture Science Buttons for Portal Fans

Aperture Science Buttons for Portal Fans
Valve’s twisted puzzle game, Portal, may sport the stark, empty environments of the title’s test center setting, but even with a minimalist backdrop, Portal’s rich with atmosphere. One of the most memorable things about the game?

Left 4 Dead Dlc Rushing in for the Kill
The amazing co-operative zombie FPS Left 4 Dead is about to get a little bigger. Valve just announced the game’s first DLC: the Survival Pack. The new content will be available for both Xbox 360 and PC, and will include two new versus campaigns as well as a new multiplayer mode called, unsurprisingly, “Survival.”

Just when you thought it was safe to surf the Internet again without running into custom Portal gear working to lure you back into your addiction to Valve’s hit game, the fandom rush has returned in pony form.

Where the Hell is Matt?: Team Fortress 2 Edition

Where the Hell is Matt?: Team Fortress 2 Edition
You’ve probably seen or at least heard of Matt Harding, a videogame developer who danced his way to internet fame. His videos remind us that we live in a beautiful world filled with beautiful people, but above all his videos remind us that dancing is a talent that few people are privileged to have.

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi
Let’s be frank here: Left 4 Dead’s zombies are kind of gross. There’s the Smoker, who has a truly gargantuan tongue that shoots out, often from some distance, only to wrap you in deadly zombie saliva, and there’s the Boomer, whose projectile vomit summons a flood of other undead, and of course, creepy Witches, massive Tanks, and annoying Hunters.

Thong4dead: L4d Mod Puts Thong Undies on Zombies

Thong4dead: L4d Mod Puts Thong Undies on Zombies
“Imagine that the audience are in their underwear.” That’s the advice some people give if you’re going to perform or speak in front of many people. Apparently the same holds true if you want to get out of a zombie-infested city.

Half-Life Cookies Put Candy Canes to Shame

Half-Life Cookies Put Candy Canes to Shame
A regular person might look at candy cane cookie cutters and think holiday treats. A Half-Life fan, on the other hand, knows there’s a better use for that red icing: Gordon Freeman’s crowbar. A simple snip in the curl of the cane turns peppermint innocence into tools of edible destruction.

Counter-Strike’S Starry Night

Counter-Strike’S Starry Night
If everyone in the world simultaneously made a list of the top ten most likely places for the works of Vincent van Gogh to turn up, odds are no one’s list would have included Valve’s Counter-Strike, and we would have all been wrong.

Weighted Companion Cube Cake is Not a Lie

Weighted Companion Cube Cake is Not a Lie
If you’re like me, you probably killed more than a few weekends back in the Fall playing Portal. As you probably know by now, the cake promised as the reward for completing all the puzzles was a big fat lie.

Weighted Companion Cube Pc: Where have You Been? [Casemod]

Weighted Companion Cube Pc: Where have You Been? [Casemod]
I’ve been keeping my eye on this Portal-inspired casemod project for a while now, watching and waiting for the builder to eventually finish his creation. And just like the cake, I guess that case was a lie.

Knitted Companion Cube Sure Ain’t Weighted

Knitted Companion Cube Sure Ain’t Weighted
Here’s another fun Portal-inspired craft goody — it’s a plush, knit version of the game’s Weighted Companion Cube. Now you may ask, how can something so soft and fuzzy qualify as “weighted”? I guess we just have to allow some artistic license to the creator of this handstitched wool cube.

Portal Companion Cube Accompanies You Anywhere

Portal Companion Cube Accompanies You Anywhere
Know someone who’s addicted to Portal? Here’s the perfect holiday gift for the obsessive fan of The Orange Box’s mindbending first-person puzzler. Inspired by the game’s handy Weighted Companion Cube, this pendant will accompany you through the test chamber of life.
