The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Portal 2 Authoring Tools Go Live

Some of your creations are really surprising. Like that one level you created in LittleBigPlanet 2. I have a lot of respect for that stuff because I just don't have the patience or know-how for that kind of thing. The closest I've come to generating my own custom-made level for any game was a gigantic ramp I made in Halo: Reach. I wanted to make my mongoose fly. Unfortunately, it, and my spartan, ended up sinking like a rock in Forge World.

Still, I enjoy playing the creations other people have taken the time to craft. Valve does too. That's why their games consistently encourage community support. Portal 2 is no different.

Valve release the authoring tools for Portal 2 today so that individuals with the drive and desire can create their own 3D Portal puzzles. Download the Portal 2 Authoring Tools and you can create single and co-op maps, new character skins, 3D models, sound effects, and music:

Here's what's included:
-Updated version of Hammer, the Source level editor
-Updated Faceposer
-Example maps and instances to help build new maps
-Updated suite of command-line compiling utitlities

As excited as I am to play some of these creations, I can't help but get the feeling that I'm going to have one very specific response to a vast majority of them:

"You monster."
