Joystiq Podcast 177 - Porthole edition


Are you ready to start off the weekend with some talk of light bridges and Flubber™-like substances? We have just the team to deliver that. If Portal 2's Wheatley can be completely engaging with only one eyeball at his disposal, imagine what Chris, Justin and Ludwig are capable of with a combined six!

It's not all Portal 2 talk this week, though. The guys also share their thoughts on Nintendo's purported Project Latte -- err, Cafe. It is said to have a six inch touchscreen on the controller. If any company could would do such a thing, it would be Nintendo.

Also, go vote for Joystiq in the Webby Awards. Seriously, if you don't, there may be consequences.
