Yes - turrets FTW! Way better than the companion cubes, IMO.

Thanks for posting this!

Yay turrets!

I continue to be impressed at the creativity of the valve-related fanbase.

Anyone else terrified of turrets with articulated legs that presumably could be used to flip upright after being knocked over?

It was pretty great, realizing that the merest touch was all it took to disable those turrets. Then it was really hard figuring out how to apply that merest touch.

Well, at least that offsets my disappointment in HalfLife for Linux not even loading for me.

Wow, that was awesome! And encourages my plan to go replay Portal 2 today.

I really like these Portal fan songs too: If I Were a Core and This is Aperture.

Portal is the fourth favorite thing at my house, among those 15 and younger. (The first three are Minecraft, pizza and cats, in no particular order.)

No, no, no! It's "OW OW OW OW OW!" Because you just knocked one of the poor things over.

I've been trolled, right?

If I recall correctly, that's the sound they make when they get disintegrated.

This is nice. I just finished both Portal and Portal 2 (I know, late to the party). Any bout of fan-made awesomeness is just icing on the cake.
