Very short comic I made last night
The green matrix gradient makes it clear that the Metrocops are, in fact, simulating this exact scenario to stop a speedrunner and hit him with bad RNG.
Bwuhahahah that’s fantastic, just soaring right over them,
I love it
I can almost see the barricade on Highway 17 with Combine soldiers laying in wait whilst Gordon soars far away in the background over the safety of the sea.
Next scene Freeman is BLJ’ing against the dune buggy to skip Highway 17.
