    Default Half life 2

    Once in a while something comes around that I'll sit and watch and my jaw will slowly start to drop. I'm a massive fan of the half life games series, now I'm not usually into fanboy videos, I prefer to play the games. Take a look at this video, it encompasses cgi from the game with live action thrown in. It was created by 2 guys who call themselves the Purchase brothers, just keep in the back of your mind that 2 episodes were created for under $500. Take a look please and let me know if I'm easily impressed or if this is really good work.

    Very nicely done but...

    WHY ?

    All that cleverness and they copy an old game.

    Eye candy but like candy leaves you initially impressed but strangely empty.

    Wow, that was really amazing!

    They managed to capture the game's atmosphere pretty well, too.

    Why is the million dollar question. There has been rumours for a number of years that Half life would be made into a movie but Hollywood being Hollywood things can take an eternity and cost a fortune. These guys have spent $500 on 10 minutes of footage, what could they produce if a film company offered up a coupe of Million dollars, that is spare change for Hollywood but a massive budget to a small 2 man operation OR they may just be sad.

    I love half-life 2 it's one of the best game experiences around.

    This was as equally awesome! I was hoping Gordon would pop up from around the corner and kill some combine!
