With his famous crowbar in one hand, and antlion-attracting Bugbait in the other, and measuring at approximately 20 inches tall (including the base), Gordon comes packed in a foam interior full colored box, along with a validation card which ensures your product is genuine!
Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted to exacting standards! Gordon is ready to lead the uprising against these alien oppressors he brought to Earth in the first place. The exclusive version comes with an additional switch out weapon, the MP-7.
This video is amazing. It features so many awesome video game characters in sprite form. I also find this cover almost better than the original, because it has so much energy and brings out some of the more subtle parts of the song in rocking ways. I’ll be interested to see what else this guy can churn out.
If you find this video as spectacular as I do make sure to follow him on Facebook.
Straight from Gourmet Gaming comes everyone’s favorite illusive cake. But as you can see, the cake’s reality is not a lie and it is quite delicious.
I had my elite baking friend (pictured holding her work of art) create the reward all participants at Aperture Labs were promised upon consent. Thankfully, we got to make and eat the cake without GLaDOS hovering about patronizing us.
For those who have escaped the bowels of Aperture and seen, but not tasted their prize, I highly recommend it. The recipe is thorough, easy to follow, and can be found in the backlogs of Gourmet Gaming’s tumblr.
Despite the heavy ingredients listed, the cake turned out a lot lighter and less filling than imagined. The cream cheese frosting holding the layers together was a perfect taste contrast to the cake and the ganache, bringing out the subtleties of the chocolate flavors in each. The cake itself was fluffy and moist, and the chocolate taste complemented the darker chocolate of the ganache in a way that showed the full delicious spectrum of the ingredient. After eating the cake, it occurred to me how good it would be with a red wine, preferably one from 8-bit Vintners just to keep the gaming food theme going.
Thanks to Maura Paxton for applying her expertise to the creation of this treat! Without her, this cake would not have turned out as picture-perfect and delectable as it did. Below is a short bio on Maura and a link to her cooking-writing blog:
