SS # 5

Soundtracks aren’t just in movies. Video games are turning more and more into great venues for new music. I have been a fan of Jonathan Coulton for a while, and have always liked his song at the end of the game Portal, released in 2007. I’m not a big gamer, but I am well versed in Super Mario bros 3, Mario Kart, some Tomb-Raider, **Kindgom hearts** and some random things like Spyro and Klonoa. I like a good story, in movies and in games. Characters are also big for me (if you haven’t already noticed). So, when I stumbled on the ending song to Portal, I was definitely interested in the story.

It’s premise, is about a testing facility where subjects are sent through a number of puzzles using a “Portal” device. The main character, Chell, being a female is awesome. The main point is the AI machine and voice that talks her through each test, has somehow become corrupted and violent. I watched clips of this game on Youtube and I think it would really scare me playing it! Don’t laugh, I know I would be interested in playing it, but I would be highly stressed out about dying, hahaha. Anyone played it? Let me know what you think of this song too. Like I said written by Jonathan Coulton and sung by Ellen Mclain, enjoy!

  1. Lucky for you, you can’t really die in Portal much! Well, you can… but you just end up starting at the beginning of the puzzle again – not a huge setback. If you find the chance to, you really should. It’s an amazing game, and it does so much (intellectually and even emotionally) with such a simple premise!
