Plus there's no killing - unless you count robots, there are no penalties if you die, and there are only a few timed challenges, so it doesn't get too frustrating.
Which reminds me: check this bad boy out:
John surprised me with this fully articulated Atlas for my birthday last month. (Atlas & P-body are from the 2 player version of Portal 2, where you play as robots instead of Chell.)
The glowing eye is unbelievably cool, but it only lasts a few hours on battery power, and is next to impossible to turn on. You have to open the battery compartment in the back, and then use a paperclip to reach the "on" switch between the eye and body frame. EESH.
The gun is lit, too, but it's just a faint glow.
I redid the shelf over my penny desk to make a proper display for him:
The Star Wars corner, with my Katie Cook Yoda, papercraft R2, and "SQUEE-wok" (a gift from the creator.)
The view from down below:
Songbird watches over me. :)
And the other side:
A reader got them for me at E3 a few years ago, and they have "Epbot" embroidered on the back - which is extra cool since the parks are finicky about only embroidering "real" names.
At some point I'd love to have the entire shelf full of Portal goodies - and ThinkGeek is NOT making it easy on my sense of restraint. Heh. I want to build my own GLaDOS potato, though. I wonder if there's an Instructable for that? Hmmm....
Well, before I get lost on a Google potato hunt: time to announce this month's art winner!
Congratulations to... Shai of Ginger Maiden Musings! Please e-mail me your mailing address, Shai, and your choice of prize from my Pinterest art give-away board.
Happy Friday, everyone! John and I will be working on our Death Eater costumes this weekend - how 'bout you guys?
