Portal has officially warranted more replays than most other games I own. You might say I like the game, and you might be right. However, I don’t like it quite this much:

From an article on kotaku.com:

Back in May, Kotaku reader Robin emailed us to let us know about the Final Fantasy bar he and some friends hosted at Scrollbar in ITU of Copenhagen. Now they’ve moved on to Portal.

As with the Final Fantasy bar, the Scrollbar has quite a collection of themed drinks for the game of choice. My favorite of the bunch is the GLADOS, a wicked concoction that includes absinthe and Sourz Apple.

The Portal Bar kicked off in November, with the most popular drinks being the Sentry Gun and the Teleportation shot.

…oh dear God.

In other, less alcoholic news, it’s been too long since I took on a stupid project that’s doomed to not work. Now that I have a month off from school, it seems like the perfect time to pick something to do and fail spectacularly at it.

So I’m going to clone Asteroids.

Actually, it’s a bit more complicated than that, but I’ll just say that for now. I’m working on a simple, low-graphics 3D clone as a warm-up. We’ll see how that goes.

If it does work, and I can find a place to upload it, I’ll post it here. If people actually play it and it works on their machines, I’ll be surprised. And then I’ll move on with the project.
