Appendum

Well the response to Freeman's Mind so far is much more positive than what I was expecting. I've put up a poll to get some idea of what people think, so go ahead and vote on it. Oh, and that's a true story about the squirrel by the way, except instead of MIT it was at Virginia Tech back in the 70's.

Eh, poor squirrel. Not a pleasant death, but I'm glad to see it's pretty positive.

Looks like you should keep making them :D

Gavin said...

I really think you should try it with half-life 2 ... Maybe just because I've played that already, but it seems so much more funny (and closer to civil protection anyway)... I can think of possible jokes very easily that have to do with the physics engine. Like you could have some puzzle that's really easy but Freeman thinks he needs to do something more complicated. For instance stack up 5 barrels like a ladder to get to a pipe when you really only have to turn a pipe crank and release more water, filling up the tank (true story for me, god that was frustrating) ;) You could do it in fast motion or something...

Or he could just freak out about the Citadel's stuff... etc. Anyway, it sounds great!

The good thing about the Freeman's Mind series is that it is easier to make than CP so it would be a good filler for the time between each episode of Civil Protection.

Hey ROSS!!!! Freeman's mind is great! I havnt visted the site in a few days now, but this is so cool! do u plan 2 make it throo the entire hl game? AND WHAT ABOUT GORDONS VOICE,,,,, wait. do u do mike's voice on cp? cause it like gordons voce. just 2 no; u no. few,, choice questiojns;;;; hmm?

karanjhala guy said...

ilooked at colonel bob's comment and just then it reminded me about upcoming episode 5 of cp, i dont wanna rush you again like in the status report forum on ur page. Do u have a plot for cp5? i thought of for 5 or anothr ep of cp, a bad luck streak like where we go to Dav's apartmnt annd he knosckes thde salt shaker over and his TV CatCHES fire. sumpin like dat!

Well, I do so enjoy pushing buttons, so option 2 was tempting, but in the interest of seeing this series continue, I put that aside and chose option 1.

Incidentally, that squirrel story was one of the best things about this episode.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and now for the physics class. BIZZZZAPPP!!!!! (Awesome sizzling flesh noises)" Far out,,, a totally hip; uot a' sight BBQ'd squirrel!" (BOOOOM ZAPPP CRASSH!!!) O man, friken transformer blew up! "Oy, we havin' squirrel 2nite!!!!"

",,,, we gotta tear this thing out of the wires!!!" (squish)

Will said...

I liked it, but I think you should definitely fastforward or skip past places where you can't come up with jokes. I got kind of bored sitting and waiting for him to say something.

But yeah, definitely continue, as long you come with great stuff like "AWESOME! A ROBOT! Robot's are the only friends I need. Pneumatics rule."

Lovely fucking series you've got in CP, and FM would be a great sister series.

"I EAT BABAIES!!!!!"

Impersonator said...

Hey Ross, well the yes votes keep comin! Think you're on to a winning idea here. But, don't loose sight of CP, because if that were to die a premature death, I think everyone would consider it a great loss... they'd call it CP remembrance day.. yes I am a little drunk as I write this.. if you hadn't already guessed! Keep up the good work dude!

hlfan said...

You should like add portal stuff with CP later. But freeman mind is pretty cool.

Ross Scott said...

Will: I only had silence because the announcer was talking during that time. There will be a minimum of that of that in future episodes

gavin: I guess so, but then it leaves people who haven't played the games more lost, since it is a sequel afterall.

colonel bob: The downside is that it takes time away from CP, so it's a real toss-up.

karanjhala guy: Your grammar needs help man. And yes, that's my normal voice, I try to use a different voice for Mike's for distinction, though it's tricky.

Impersonator: Don't worry, FM will die before CP will, however it could stall it.

hlfan: I planned to before it was even out, however I already have 2 unfinished CP episodes as it is.

I have very fond memories of Half life, so that a big reason why I like this, but even then, I like that you took something like going through the game into something like this. Even without the fondness, this is some funny stuff with Freeman as your puppet and mouthpiece. If you did this more, I'm sure you would get better too. I think you should still do Civil protection equally as much though.

Engelbrekt said...

HL 1 is one of the very, very, ridiculously few FPS games I have actually completed. You'd get a bit more variation yourself, from working on both projects, right? Which means there's a significantly(hopefully) smaller chance it'll turn into too much of a chore.

I was very skeptical, the idea seemed... boring, in truth. Not just boring, but somehow pretentious. But fret not, I love it. There's an endless amount of scenes I'd love to hear "Freeman" comment, I doubt anyone else could actually do it that well. Or even halfway. I was thoroughly amused...

Oh yeah, I still drop by. Keep up the good work, make sure it's fun for you, you've got what it takes. :D But anyway, thank you. You're a superb entertainer.

Jack_SLO said...

well i think you should continue on civil protection, its more original and funny....

HokiePilot said...

Well done... keep it up.

That's crazy you mention the VT squirrel, the ones on campus seem to be the dumbest ones around... matter of time, I guess.

If you find yourself in Blacksburg sometime soon, I owe you a beer for all the hard work you're doing.
