I had a question about the ending:

During the end movie, before the elevator gets to the turret symphony room, there are various flashes of small rooms: turrets guarding a cube, double turrets, and one were turrets seem to be manipulating something organic. A big potato? Some kind of creature? What is it?

You know, I had a same kind of question about that sequence: In the turret singing portion, is the largest turret wearing a crown? – Uticensis Apr 24 '11 at 1:55
yes, it's the king turret from one of the movies shown on the elevator walls during the initial chapter. – Marco Mustapic Apr 24 '11 at 2:14

It's most likely a potato. It's more of a joke like the rooms before.

Dare I spread the rumor mill and say it's an observer from Half Life?

You can also see a giant turret from the turrets promotional ad – Raven Dreamer Apr 24 '11 at 6:02
Kindof looks like it has tentacles though – Keaanu Apr 28 '11 at 18:59
