It was an ordinary day when Gordon Freeman entered The Test Chamber. But it all changed after that.

We present to you now, Half-Life: The Movie. The epic story of Gordon Freeman and his cohorts fighting the evil aliens.

Enjoy, everyone.

Gordon Freeman had a crowbar. Adrian Shepherd had the pipe wrench. Plus I'm fairly sure trees aren't evil. Or alien. I may have missed something as I'm at work so I have no sound.

You mean you never ran around clubbing/wrenching/crowbaring things for no reason?

have you ever actually *tried* to swing a crowbar? if you missed what you were aiming for, your enemy would have torn you apart before you could relocate your shoulder...

yeah that never quite added up -

gordon freeman is a scientist right? so hes the kinda bespectacled boffin who slopes around laboratories hugging the walls to avoid potential conflict with co-workers. Futhermore as a scientist, he's probably also beyond the fickle concepts of body building or toning (and personal hygeine no doubt - he does have a beard razz), so will either be slight in build, or just fat; but either way unlikely to be that fit...

yet he runs around alien planets in special suits, which must weigh a tonne, and can swing a crowbar at ridiculous speeds for as long as he pleases...with one arm!!

hmmmm.

Ah. Clearly, the HEV suit is what gives him his strength. You don't see him swinging anything until after he's put the suit on, do you?

Also, the fact he's a nerdy weeny scientist is what made Half Life kinda cool and different. You didn't just play another random, beefy, sub-Arnie ripoff.

I met someone called Gordon last week.

Awesome, it was almost as realistic as the game, you could almost feel the weight of the wrench, I bet that tree wished it had never crossed the path of Gordon Freeman, the trees will think twice before they try to invade the earth again....burble burble burble, my granny like pies, wibble, wibble

Oh yeah, that was dope. I didnt stop my laughing until its cresendo at the end, with the animation-like movements. Really excellent humor style acuLAAAG.


Also, on another note WELCOME BACK MR. PUGH...I see your style of discussion hasnt changed yet...

Remember the time i started to say the "peace out" thing was kinda anoyying, then aculag took it to the masses? that was a great achievement in forum history.

Was he the guy that started that thread in whch it said "from now on, you must say peace out after everything?" That was hilarious, Aculag's "fixing" of posts via quoting, ah, good times.

BTW- Nice movie, 3/5, because it was just a short clip. Very funny though.

hah, i bet that made some people feel bad.

Out of all the horrible First Person Movie Game Thing Movies I have ever seen, you guys had the motion down the best. I think if you guys played with this movie and maybe parodied first person shooters with classic D&R humor, you would have a...classic

Well, just wait longer. We did this as a test to see what we could do with the FPS style. We're going to do a Doom 3 movie that will be very much better. And longer.

But not in real life. Gordon Freeman is a REAL person, and he did everything portrayed in Half-Life: The Movie for REAL.

But you're still escaping the issue that Gordon Freeman never had a wrench. He used a crowbar. And Adrian Shepherd used a wrench. Are we to assume that Freeman has stolen Shepherds wrench? Or is this film the story of Gordon Freeman : As told by Adrian Shepherd?

This is the REAL story of the REAL Gordon Freeman. Who used a wrench AND a crowbar. But he used the wrench first, and that's the part of the story our film portrays.

And Tarn: He does have three legs, but he keeps one folded up for surprise attacks.

Now, If I wanted to be picky I would say that half life didn't have a wrench (however, Half Life : Opposing Force did). But all in all...a funny short.
