So this one time - not at band camp, I was way too old for that then - I was out on the town, you know. Now the town's not what it was before the apocalypse. But it does. Hell, there's nothing else to do!
Anyway, there I was, shooting zombies in the face, as you do... meleeing the rotten motherfuckers whenever they got too close for comfort, and what do I come across but this funny little gnome. So I pick him up, right? 'Cause he reminded me of another gnome I used to know, and suddenly I'm in this weird... I don't even know how to describe it! Like a testing facility? Or something?
And there's this crazy robot lady's voice coming through the speakers, and she's all 'Oh. It's you. It's been a looooong time. How have you been?' Hella weird.
Have I died and gone to video game heaven?!
Apologies for the odd little bit of roleplay there. But just... fangasm much? :D
In this clip from what I have to say is a very competent-looking user-generated campaign downloadable for Left 4 Dead 2 for free, Left 4 Dead... meets Portal... meets, ever-so-briefly, Half-Life.
Words cannot communicate the awesome.
God what fond memories I have for that there gnome. Anyone else out there carry that beardy so-and-so all the way through Half-Life 2: Episode Whatever like I did? To infinity and beyond, by way of one the rocket ship?
Good times, man. Good times...
