This is logical progression. Go from Little Big Planet to Portal to Half-Life 2.

Yeah...anyway, I haven't played Portal since I got my flat screen, so I barreled through it. After having a "chat" with GLaDOS and watching the credits roll, I loaded my Half-Life 2 save.

After a minute or so trying to remember exactly what I was doing before, I said "screw it" and hopped in the hovercraft and just went exploring. I eventually found a switch that opened a door on the Dam. After collecting my hovercraft, I hit a ramp and went all Dukes of Hazzard through it. After a x00 foot drop (that didn't kill me), I was in Black Mesa East...or at least the chapter titled that.

Not much happening in BFE..er, I mean BME. They were working on a teleporter. I got my hands on the Gravity Gun, I was unimpressed at that time. The Combine attacked the base, so I made a hasty retreat to...

[dramatic music swell] RAVENHOLM. [/dramatic music swell]

Ravenholm brought standard zombies, gravity gun awesomeness (saw blades FTW), headcrabs in a few flavors, fatter zombies, faster zombies, and Father Grigori. I actually like the crazy SOB, he was an interesting character (and he gave me a shotgun). There was one part where I burned up most of my ammo. I didn't realize for a couple of minutes that the Zombies respawned. After that finally sunk in, I only used it on those black headcrabs because those suckers hurt. We had to cut through a graveyard to get to my next destination, because that's the perfect place to not meet zombies. After helping me through safely, Father Grigori met what I would call a fitting end. As he laughed, I made my way into the mines.

After a couple of failed attempts, I made it safely to the scaffolding. I killed a few of the (MANY) headcrabs at the bottom, and then saved to call it a day. I learned that I actually like killing zombies. Perhaps I should look into more games with that theme. Resident Evil's probably out though, unless they've changed their control scheme (doubtful). I want a zombie game with a cover system like the Uncharted series!
