Wow. “The Combine Interview”, at the time it was made, was one of the most amazing things I had ever seen. Very well written, awesome acting, excellent production values and cinematography, and with some great action near the end, it was simply amazing. Even with recent fanfilms such as “Escape from City 17” and “Beyond Black Mesa”, this is still very awesome, and the way it was written to reflect Tom Cruise’s leaked Scientology interview is pretty amazing. Video is after the jump.

Two-Thirds-Life is an awesome online Flash short made as a parody to the original Half-Life. Looking at each chapter and parodying it, Two Thirds Life manages to be pretty hilarious. A 27-minute sequel which would parody HL2 was in the works until early 2010, when it was cancelled, and all that remains is a trailer and a demo chapter of “A Red Letter Day”.

Still, the original is very awesome, and the TTL2 previews are great as well. Perhaps the author, Raiki, can post the unfinished videos. Till then, enjoy this classic.
