Last week you got to see Princess Nagger’s new toy stemming from her current obsession with Portal, which is a puzzle-platform game that makes you use your brain and solve the puzzles by teleporting yourself using the “Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device”:
Another quirky part of the game are turrets that are part of the main computer you’re trying to beat. Naturally Princess Nagger wanted to get a turret too, and since they were on sale, how could I resist:
The ‘warning’ on the back of the box especially cracked me up:
In case you don’t feel like clicking on the image to make it ginormous for you to read, or your reading glasses aren’t quite strong enough, here’s what it says:
WARNING: This turret is not a replacement for a home security system. In fact, we would recommend investing in a security system if you haven’t already. These things can go rogue. We can’t stop them. They’re loose cannons; they play by their own rules. You should respect that.
ATTENTION: By purchasing this turret you are renouncing your legal right to call us about any shooting injuries caused by the turret (up to and including death). This is one of those non-refundable, non-suing-us situations. Don’t even phone to see how we’re doing. We’re busy, and quite frankly, we need some space.
Isn’t that hilarious? This replica is really tiny. Like fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand tiny:
Isn’t that cute? They are sold ‘blind’, meaning you don’t know which version you’ll get when you order them, and Princess Nagger was tickled she got the exact one she wanted:
When she’s happy, I’m happy. And I’m thankful that she’s into fun games and puzzle games instead of violent or shoot-em-up type games.
Bet you want a quirky, rogue turret now too, don’t you?
