Is Nintendo an ancestor of Aperture Science? A dummy corporation? We recently recorded the North American voice of the Wii Fit Balance Board, and it bears an uncanny resemblance to Portal's happy little turrets. Even the hierarchy of henchmen follows Portal.

It's good to see GlaDOS out in the open, probably buying more cake mix. She may say she's detecting pollen levels for the benefit of mankind, but we know the real reason -- cake (thanks, Ted and Jeremy). Check out the highlights for today:JoystiqueryLaw of the Game on Joystiq: Grumpy Thompson Again...

It's Christmas Eve Eve Eve, and most of the blue-collared work force has temporarily retired for a well-deserved holiday break -- but not Portal's schizophrenic digital antagonist, GLaDOS. It would seem that the hardest working woman in the AI business (Sorry, Cortana) will remain ever vigilant at...
