The lights are on
If you've been playing Valve's latest fantastic release, Portal 2 -- and you should be! -- or even if you just played the original when it came out in 2007, then you're familiar with the innocent-yet-deadly turrets, sleek, bullet-packing robots that will gun you down mercilessly but kindly forgive you when you knock them out. They probably have already made you say "awww" at their overall cuteness, but a newly discovered easter egg from the sequel just adds to that feeling.
The video below, from YouTube user BlueXephos, shows off an early puzzle in Portal 2 where you can discover a hidden area that has a nice surprise: singing turrets. Check it out for yourself:
[Thanks to Richard for the news tip!]
Haha! It's Portal's version of a barbershop quartet!
if I had thought about attacking that one turret, I don't know what would have happened
Yess, I'm going to do this now.
They sound kinda sad
My new ringtone
Definitely something i will be checking out later today. They do seem somewhat sad though as they sing. Kinda makes you feel bad for them
There's actually a lot of people that may have missed this, but if you look at the other side of the area you look down on to see the singing turrets, there's this really, really fat turret just kind of sitting there. So there's actually two parts to this easter egg! :)
i cant wait to get this game
I believe their new training regimen is singing before shooting their targets to death. It's a way to "lighten the mood".
I want an mp3 of this...
i love this game on my top 3 of all time list
I never found the turrets cute. Their casual disregard for human life and the way they politely engage you in conversation while shredding your body with machine gun fire creeped me out, ugh! (shiver)
Awesome easter egg!
hah thats funny
@2:22 - I thought that was someone talking in MY GTalk, haha. Great video, I missed this area, I think. Been awhile since my last playthrough so I'm not certain...
