A friend of mine shared with me this Half-Life 2
video which sets the major plot points of Half-Life 2, Episode1 , and Episode 2 to The National's Exile Villify
. It contains major spoilers for the game but does a good job of marrying the narrative feel of the series to a song.
I used to make a yearly habit of making the 20 hr or so run through the game and all of it's episodes but time has been short lately and this video jogged so many good gaming memories that I think I'm going to have to set some time aside after E3 to don Gordon Freeman's HAZMAT suit once again. Hopefully we'll get some news on the series next month but I'm not holding my breath...much.
