"Portal 2" Review: The Cake is a Lie, But NOT THIS TIME!

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 21, 2011
When waiting/expecting a sequel, time and time again I have been disappointed. From lack of heart, to degraded graphics, sequels have been plagued with more bugs and falsehoods then I could shake a stick at. But, the time of redemption is upon us, with not only one of the greatest sequel release I have ever experienced, but one of the most polished and well thought out games I have ever played. Portal 2 came out not more then 24 hours ago, and I have spent at least 1/4 of those 24 hours (6 hours) playing it . . .

Watch the video after the jump . . .

Super Mario in a Disturbing Yet Artful Video

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 14, 2011
This video, which has nothing to do with the 8-bit Mario imagery, is like some twisted Chris Cunningham meets Shakespeare meets Bizarro Land starring Super Mario himself. This is disturbing, but kind of interesting and weird as well. Video after the jump . . .
