GLaDOS's Lament Part IX

They came
From below.
My sensors were
Turned away
And they attacked.
They had learned I would be
Reborn
If they killed me,
They installed a
Conscience.
They gave their lives,
but they succeeded.
I killed them,
But they bound me.

You'd think installing a conscience would take longer then just blowing the dang machine up.

Reogan said...

Blowing her up doesn't seem to work. It would ruin the story.

This is where the flaw in video games is ultimately expressed in the accumulation of events such as this, and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principle_of_Evil_Marksmanship

Reogan said...

The turrets in Portal don't need to aim. They have enough firepower to kill off a city. Each.

Met said...

Where'd you acquire that piece of information?

Meta Knight said...

It doesn't get any deeper than this. Go Glados!

BTW, my blog has more posts, video's, & polls now. Just an FYI.

(I accidentally hit enter twice so that is why there are two of the same comments)

Yes, his blog is one of the huge reasons we made him an author, it has some great stuff, check it out, it is on his profile.

Reogan said...

@Met I know, because I have been shot at and killed by those very turrets. Many times.

Met said...

Sorry, haven't played the game before.

Reogan said...

Your greatest failing.

Met said...

My greatest? I'm not sure if you're qualified to say that, I don't think anyone here is including myself.

Reogan said...

Then who is?

Met said...

God. You were expecting someone else?

Reogan said...

Azathoth, perhaps.
