Luckily I’m either too dumb, or not a big enough hipster to be a Portal fanboy, because I would’ve been faced with a tough decision this week.  You see, Portal 2, Valve’s follow-up to their smash it that was packaged into the Orange Box dropped this week alongside Mortal Kombat 9.  For me it was a no brainer, I went with Mortal Kombat, but that doesn’t mean this decision was as easy for other gamers.  The Portal franchise has garnered quite a following over the past few years, so there were many fanboys of both entities who had to make a tough decision at their local videogame store this week.  MK9, or Portal 2?

Well the geniuses over at The Game Station came up with a great game concept that should give fans of both the Portal and MK franchises a game to be happy with.  This bizarre love child is called Portal Kombat!  Essentially, this game combines the portal gun from Valve’s uniquely original puzzle game with the brutal violence found in a MK game.  The result is a match made in heaven.  After watching the Portal Kombat vid I was sold on the idea of having a fighter from the Portal World competing in the Mortal Kombat tournament.  Trust me, there’s some awesome fatalities that can be pulled off using a gun that creates portals in the fighting arena.  Check it out below.  You’ve been digging the testicality…
