Wot I Think: Valve s Portal-Themed VR Suite The Lab

The Lab is a free, semi-Portal-themed collection of minigames and vignettes from Valve, designed to show of the capabilities of their new VR headset, the Vive. It's out now, but clearly most of you won't be able to try it – even if you ordered a Vive, you're weeks or more away from receiving it.

Have You Played Portal 2

Rocket League Portal DLC Doesn't Contain Portals

A free Portal-themed set of cosmetic items and flourishes will arrive in Rocket League [official site] tomorrow. There are gel trails for your nitro boosts, cake hats and decals, and heart-breaking Companion Cube antennae.
