Victims of Science - The Device Has Been Modified
(song download, mp3)
Before watching or reading forward: if you have not played the Portal game (I haven't either, yet) - read this. It contains a lot of spoilers - this was a warning.
What happens when you install GLaDOS on a mechanostrider? Watch this video and find out.
Once upon a time, there was the gnome kingdom of Gnomeregan. Lots of gnomes lived there, some of them vibrated. One day in the year 1985, the gnome kingdom did a company merger with Aperture Science.
In the same time, an instacast shadow nova spell was added to the warlock class.
In 1986, the development starts on GLaDOS (Generic Lifeform and Disk Operating System). The Aperture Science Pirate Hats (tm) are sold out almost immediately in every store.
In 1987, the most stupid fucking idea in the history of stupid fucking ideas takes place. GLaDOS is installed into a mechanostrider.
But.. some idiot had copied the entire discographies of Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance and Bullet For My Valentine on that 5.25" floppy disc.
As these bands and their music causes vomiting, diarrhea and irresistable desire to cut oneself with dull plastic knives on a human being.. well, you can guess what it does for a machine.
Rick Astley releases "Never Gonna Give You Up". The song becomes an instant success.
In 1989, the mechanostrider goes crazy and kills 99.98% of the gnomeregan population. With laserbeams and radiation.
Swish, swoooshh - oh my!
How To Paladin IX wins 12 Oscars. They include the best movie, the best direction, the best male actor (Shepiwot), the best music and the best spinning scene.
In 2029, the remaining survivors of Gnomeregan are turned into mindless cyborg slaves. Some are forcefully mutated into MechaMurlocs.
But, one gnome managed to survive. She just slept through the entire incident.
The Weighted Companion Cube is not in this movie - it demanded a too big salary.
Making of + SCANDAL
It took exactly one day, Saturday to make this machinima. Oh come on.. there is no better way to spend a saturday than to sit in front of your computer making machinima!
This whole thing got started when Vesta pasted a YouTube link to the song by Victims of Science.
I downloaded the song.
I listened it on repeat during a Karazhan raid.
I had to machinimate it.
Let's jump to the scandal part: the Portal Gun you see originated from MMOwned. Yes, MMOwned.
I barely can look myself in the mirror now.. feel so dirty! (To my defence, the original .mpq from that site did not work so I repacked it and saved the day).
BONUS VIDEO! I made this short clip very quickly. It just shows how to install GLaDOS into a mechanostrider :)
