1187 (Half-Life 2 Mod) Deserves A Snoop/Dre Theme Song
1187 is a new Half-life 2 mod that doesn’t really reinvent the wheel but doesn’t suck either. The official description – “Creatures came out of what seemed to be thin air. Animated and alive. They came without a warning and swept the world …” might be the most succinct summation of all time, and the premise is nothing short of baffling. It’s set in the Half-Life universe. But for some reason, it appears to be about your ex roommate.
In 1187, it’s been ten years since the Black mesa incident. For reasons that aren’t made clear, even though the world has been overrun with hellmouth daemons, people still live in Apartments, and you’ve woken up in yours. You’ve been approached in a dream by a man you don’t know. Also, tons of nightmare fuel monsters keep trying to kill you. And that’s about the most sense I was able to make out of it. Fortunately, it’s pretty fun, and whatever your take, you have to at least admit this looks really cool.
