Portal – 2

Finally I got a chance to get back to gaming with Grid and Portal-2. I was very happy to get Portal-2 in first place. I liked the first part a lot. The game provides player only one weapon and an awesome game-play. For those who didn’t play Portal, I would say that play the first edition to get into the feel of ‘Portals’.

Before I start, this post is not a walk-through or chapter-wise guide or something similar to that. Its just my take on the game.

Game Engine / Graphics:
Portal is designed on Source Engine, used in Half-Life 2 and Left 4 Dead. The environment has great detail and physics. Well don’t we all love great detail and physics? 😀

For people who are expecting Crysis like graphics, Sorry. The game has just enough graphics to enjoy. I was enjoying the game on my 1080p monitor just when the game crashed due to GPU overload. More on this later.

Linux used is Ubuntu (any version will do). Language considered: C/C++ Continue reading

"Hello, World!"


printf(” Hello, World!”);
cout<<“Hello, World”;
print “Hello, World!”
System.out.println(“Hello, World!”);

“Hello, World!” is more than just a string. Its the mark of starting a new venture. More seen in technology than anywhere else.
