Nadia comes back to the show to geek out over Portal, the 2007 first-person puzzle platformer by Valve and source of a thousand memes, including:
- Looking back on Chell as a heroine, eight years later
- GLaDOS as the dark mother, and how a computer got to be so good at emotional abuse
- Why LC never finished Portal 2
- The loneliness of first person shooters, and Portal as a purgatorial crawl
Plus: The E3 Roundup Boogaloo: Dishonored 2! Mass Effect Andromeda! The Last Guardian (with bonus Shadow of the Colossus)! Uncharted 4! Final Fantasy 7 Remake! Horizon: Zero Dawn! Rise of the Tomb Raider! ReCore! Firewatch! Unravel! Beyond Eyes! Yoshi’s Wooly World! Earthbound: Beginnings! And much more! Also, the films of Luc Besson; Dune; and your emails!
