Today we have a little synergy for you. Specifically, the Synergy mod for Half Life 2. Will and I played parts of Half Life 2 yesterday, so here’s some highlights (and some lowlights).
Here, we meet up with Barney, the security guard from Black Mesa in the original Half Life. What do Will and I do to greet him?
We chuck stuff at him.
He finally got fed up with us and sent us on our way.
Will ticked off the Combine a few times.This was one of those times.
Will! I’m up here!
While we ran through an apartment building, I showed Will one of the simpler pleasures of the game.
No more TV…
… for you!
Will and I decide they didn’t need any of their furniture that wasn’t nailed down. However, at this point the server crashed and we had to restart. I voted that we reboot in Ravenholme, and Will agreed.
This is the creepiest part of the game, bar none.
I HATE these fast zombies, they give me the creeps.
I hate their head crabs, too. Not as much as the poison ones, but I still hate them.
ACK! Will accidentally tossed a grenade at my feet to take care of the head crab. That’s a little dangerous!
Here Will pelts another zombie with his shotgun.
Cornered in a small room, waiting for an elevator, we had to fend off zombie waves.
HELP HELP HELP HELP
Ah, thank you.
Ooh, gas tanks on the floor between us. I shouldn’t really shoot those.
But I do anyway.
We head down the elevator at last.
Oh no, that’s not creepy at all.
Here I use a grenade to deal with a hulking poison zombie.
No! A poison head crab!
No #2!! I’m dead. Dammit.
Crap. Good luck Will. Hold out until I respawn!
I’m back! Woot!
Here we charge down a road towards God-knows-where.
Yes, I found health! Now I’m certain to live for a long…
DAMN YOU POISON HEAD CRABS!
DAMN YOU TO HELL!
It’s up to you now Will.
Aw crap. You found poison head crabs too I see.
And a HUGE FREAKING POISON ZOMBIE! Will, watch out!
Damn. We’re both dead.
Ok, that’s it. If the game won’t play right and let us win, we’ll have to come back to this another time.
