Rootjack and Pirates, Vikings & Knights (oh my!)

I’ve never played Half Life 2, and such is the depth of my shame. Actually, I don’t even know what Half Life is – I assume it’s a game about radioactive mutants. BUT, it’s also a game that can be modded, meaning other themes can be layered atop the game engine to make for something quite different – in this cast Pirates vs. Knights vs. Vikings.

So long, puffy gums, so long bleeding sores – RootJack makes it all better, and tastes pretty good alongside. (more…)
