We might not be in the era of taking your PlayStation 4 to a shop down the street and getting a mod chip. But ever since Sony announced you could run Linux on the original PlayStation 3 - and subsequently removed it in future iterations - people have been keen on the idea of Linux running on the PS4.

Any PC fan will tell you that mods can extend, improve or revive a game's prospects, and the ModDB repository is the home for just about every decent mod under the sun.

As is the case every year, the site nominates its top 100 mods and then opens the doors for fans to vote. But more importantly, it's a chance to catch up with some of the best mods from the last 12 months.

You might remember Penny from her previous appearances on Kotaku. Previously she was helping her Dad (Australian game developer Lance E. McDonald) play, but now she's struck out on her own.

You may remember Lance E. McDonald is the creator of the upcoming game Black Annex, the modern game built completely in Basic, but Lance has now reinvented himself as a YouTube superstar. Actually, the real star is his three year old daughter Penny. Earlier this week they played Dark Souls II together and it was the cutest thing ever. Now they're playing Portal 2, or as his daughter calls it, 'ORDAL'!

Thinking With Time Machine is a new and grammatically dubious Portal 2 mod that lets you record and play back time loops to solve puzzles. Considering the trouble some people had with just the portals I'm imaging a few Scanner-style head pops here.

The Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America and Thor (poor Thor) all transformed into Valve characters. With the Scout and the Soldier from Team Fortress 2 and a zombie from Left 4 Dead, teaming up with Gordon Freeman, this team probably wouldn't function smoothly.

Considering the fact that it's a fan-made short put together for under $500, Portal: Survive has some truly incredible moments. Based on both the game and its tie-in comic, "Portal 2: Lab Rat", it tells the story of robot science's triumph over human science, for the sake of science.
