Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.
Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In every game there is that one NPC that the game developers create just to frustrate you and make you break perfectly good controllers (and possibly TVs). The reasoning behind their madness is unknown but it has been this way since the very first games back in the day. These enemies are the frustrating jerks who take all the cheap shots and break all the rules of civil gaming.
The original Portal was a masterful piece of work that premiered in a collection known as the “Orange Box” which included Half Like 2, Half Life 2: Episode Two and Team Fortress Two.
The plot was simple: You were a test subject in the Aperture Science underground lab, that was supervised my a mentally unstable computer called GLaDoS. Using your portal gun, you navigated your way through the impossible tests GLaDoS tries to kill you with and ultimately destroying her and escaping. It was short, filled to the brim with dark humor, sometimes frustrating, but always entertaining piece of mind-bending gaming. So, when Valve Studios announced a sequel, I was a bit nervous.
I am happy to report that my fears were groundless! Portal 2 succeeds in almost every way in which you could possibly want it to, and does it with a smile.
