It was a shooter that was nothing like a shooter. Given the imminent release of its sequel, the Moving Pixels podcast crew felt that it was time to take a step back into 2007’s Portal.
We tried to spare ourselves from just revisiting the old “cake is a lie” memes and the like and instead found ourselves revisting the tight pacing, innovative gameplay, and, oh yeah, we talk about the rivalry between GLaDOS and Chell.
