Games Somebody has just added the Portal gun to Minecraft. Your argument? It is now invalid.

Eh? That’s not the Minecraft portal mod I know: This is way, way, way better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0Ud9esotDU

Edit: A better gameplay video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1o6htwsCtA Note that this is very early. The mod has been improved a lot since. Someone created a "CCTV" mod for Minecraft that could conceptually be used to create the look-through effect for portals, but I don’t know if that’s been done yet (or will be added).

Overall this is pretty amazing stuff. I can imagine Minecraft being used for all sorts of game prototyping. You’ve got to realise that this is a game that was never designed for this, and some modders managed to hack together a rough, playable version of an entirely different game in such a short time. This is really ground-breaking.
