Remember that really awesome fan made Half Life 2 video Escape From City 17? Yeah, I forgot about it too. Go ahead and watch it over again, because the ending is pretty awesome:
A story about the connection that grows between two people during the battle for city 17. Made in the same gritty guerrilla style as the original, it was made on a $250 budget, previously owned/donated software, time, and an HVX200 camera.
