At least his Chell smiles. Alex Zembe, a designer for the Uncharted series, is working his “ass off” on a pet project called “Companionship_”, a short animation based on Valve’s Portal series.
The film is a “tale of love, loss and cubes” with apparent Pixar inspiration reflecting on the characters and the film’s colorful tone. There is no date on when this will be out, but looks like a fun film to watch.
Well, as long as there will be cake.

Nexon, a South Korean publisher known for its free-to-play games like MapleStory and Combat Arms, has apparently offered to buy Electronic Arts, according to Bloomberg.
Following the news, Electronic Arts shares spiked from $1.22 to $16.23.
Nexon is one of the biggest publisher in South Korea, who had managed to raise $1.2 billion last year in Japan’s biggest IPO of 2011. It’s run by Kim Jung-Ju, who happens to be the 3rd richest person in South Korea.
Sometimes fans with excellent hacking and snooping skills can be a boon. Skyrim fan Kerellan who poked around the latest v1.5.26 update found a number of code lines and files that could possibly be a part of the game’s upcoming DLC.
He shared his discoveries in a thread over at the official forums. There is mention of a Snow Elf Prince, a new vampire feeding animation, a new crossbow weapon, and some animation files for “RF” which, from the file-names – guarded, playful, serious – suggests could either be a character or a pet.
Bethesda recently promised news regarding Rage and Skyrim for this month, but with only two days left for the month, it seems unlikely that an announcement is coming anytime soon.
