The prisoner is in front of me. He has long hair and is wearing a blue jumpsuit.
Welcome to a Very Special episode of The Demo Man. Why is it Very Special? Because I actually played a demo I kind of like, as opposed to the demos I usually play which are pure crap. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of crap in this demo. But what isn’t crap is actually really, really good, so I’m afraid I’ll have to say some nice things about it. Bear with me.
Infernal is an in-your-face demo of a game that’s all about kicking ass! Even the menu screen will kick you in the ass with your own face! In fact, the hero of the demo, the guy you play, is named Jake Asskicker. I know, it sounds like I’m making that up, but I’m not — that’s his actual name. Jake. Asskicker. I am not lying.
Yes, it’s the 2006 Olympic Games, brought to you live from Italy!
Cs_italy, that is. This charming Counter-Strike map will host today’s event, the marathon, or as they say in Italy, marathan-o. That’s right, this isn’t a deathmatch, it’s a race! This twenty-six mile footrace will take our competitors through the narrow streets of cs_italy roughly 265 times, so I hope you’re ready to see hundreds upon hundreds of pictures of running!
Time for the rubber match between the antlions and the Gordon Frohmen! As usual, we’ll be changing things up a bit for the third and final round.
We’ll still have three Frohmen, but since they got their asses kicked last time, we’re gonna downgrade their hardware. Yes, downgrade. We’d had them armed with an AR2, an SMG, and a shotgun, but if you read the comic, you know Frohman prefers his pistol above everything else, except maybe his shovel. So, we’re going to arm all three Frohmen with the pistols. Though small, they hold an 18-round clip and at close range they really pack a punch. Or at least a paf.
