Doug "Rat Man" Rattmann is one of the most important characters in Portal, though he didn't appear in either game. The message-scrawling scientist made his video game debut in LEGO Dimensions' Portal level pack, though he's so well hidden it took more than a year to find him.

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.
Portal Stories: Mel was not made by Valve, but it's probably the closest thing we'll get to Portal 3 for a while.
Portal Stories: Mel, an upcoming mod for Portal 2, is starting to less like a mod in this new trailer, and more like a straight-up official Valve entry in the series.
Portal Stories: Mel is a mod for Portal 2 that has been three years in the making. With a whole new story, new gear and new missions, it will hopefully feel like a whole new Portal, only it's one you don't need to pay for.

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. Her first 'Let's Play' video is a humdinger: watch Penny play Portal 2 and feel your ovaries throb in response.
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'!
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.
Now, we've featured plenty of GLaDOS cosplayers before — all great! — but no cosplay, to our knowledge, has ever done GLaDOS like this before.
