      It’s so brilliant I found a bag of milky ways.

    • Spatula says:

      remind me what the bag of milky ways thing means again?

      It means one had an unfortunate accidental efflux of excrement into one’s clothing, instigated by an extemporaneous frightening event. The term originated here. It has subsequently been misused by certain people suggesting an efflux of a different bodily product due to excitement, which is transparently a corruption of the true meaning.

    • DeathHamsterDude says:

      Okay, look. Valve. I know someone out of your lovely company MUST read RPS. So, you have seen this, you must be excited, we’re excited too (look! Some of our members even pooped a little!).

      MAKE THIS GAME! PLEASE! Even as a little game in the next Orange Box! Anything! Please!

    • SuperNashwanPower says:

      I mini-pooped

    • Trousers says:

      I’m holding one in, which is much more exciting

  2. Sobric says:

    Hah that’s magnificent

  3. Hellraiserzlo says:

    This is awesome I wish I could recognize all the references in this.

  4. Dominic White says:

    Bonus point multiplier for a Tommy Wiseau + Deal With It combo!

    • Ayam says:

      I didn’t get the Tommy Wiseau reference in there, NICE! Valve, make THIS happen. Left 4 Dead 3, we know which direction you’re headed now!

  5. Hoaxfish says:

    combine invaders must die

    I think my favourite bit, is with the knife vs T-Rex

    What now? Where does humanity go from this?

      Easy, Humanity makes this game and enters a new age of awesomeness and red hats.

    You thoight he was gone?
    He was just GNOME!

    That’s just amazing. If it wasn’t so funny I’d make a snide remark about some of the gmod video tropes (and I recognise the fire from a collection of stock clips) but the overall brilliance more than makes up for the details. Great camera, too. I guess it goes to show how far talent can take you with limited resources.

  9. Callum says:

    That was amazing and just what I needed to put a smile on my face this morning. Thank you. Also especially relevant since I finished that damn gnome achievement just a few months ago.

  10. terry says:

    I would unironically buy this.

    • Consumatopia says:

      As would I.

      But I also wish there was kind of Ironic Currency that I could use for insincere purchases.

  11. Lost Trousers says:

    I was just about to go find this again in my sub box when I saw it on my rss feed.
    Thank you, RPS.

  12. MadTinkerer says:

    Just when you thought you had seen everything that could be done in Garry’s Mod, someone comes along and ups the ante… again. Kudos for:

    1) Avoiding the standard random GMod cliches, like the tired old funny/creepy-faced GMan/Breen gag.

    2) Avoiding most other Valve characters altogether(!) Zombies, yes, but none from the Half Life universe or L4D.

    3) The Duty Calls quote. And all the other references too, of course, but that one in particular.

    4) The music from the Scott Pilgrim teaser trailer. Quite appropriate for a mashup like this.

    Brilliant. :)

    • Pattom says:

      I’m pretty sure they also used that music in the last Duke Nukem Forever trailer, which is probably where they got the idea from. Definitely a great song, though. And I’ll have to finally play Duty Calls, because the quote went right past me.

  13. cytokindness says:

    Wait, was that the gnome from Research and Development for a few seconds there? The one that goes disco and explodes?

  14. bagga says:

    Came for the leftist critique of state and corporate power hierarchies in video games, stayed for the freaking gnome with machine guns.

  15. Daz says:

    let me wipe the tears from my eyes so I can type to you guys how awesome that was!

  16. Navagon says:

    WE NEED THIS

  17. Wulf says:

    I think Gnome Chompski is a pretty cool guy. He wears 8-bit shades, and is not afraid of anything.

    Someone had to, I’ll be that guy.

    Yes, this was fairly entertaining.

  18. President Weasel says:

    GET OFF

    HIS LAWN

  19. Nallen says:

    Expectations exceeded, 10/10 would lol again.

  20. limbclock says:

    Gnome Chompski: Lawn Defender

    or:

    Gnome Chompski: Lawn Justice

  21. Crane says:

    No no.

    “Lawn of the Dead”

  22. Kid_A says:

    I snickered all the way up until “Get Off… His Lawn.”, at which point I did heartily chuckle.
    -insert Fry “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY” here-

  23. TooNu says:

    That was very funny :)

  24. Xercies says:

    YOU ARE TEARING ME APART GNOME!

    • Flobulon says:

      OH HAI GNOME

    • Dominic White says:

      There’s even a dubstep version!

      Edit: Found a version of the video! Comment below about Wiseau being a tool still applies:

      There used to be a video to go with it, but Tommy Wiseau got it pulled, because he is Tommy Wiseau and therefore we mock him at every opportunity. He’s like the gift that keeps on giving.

    • MrHairyLives says:

      “I didn’t do eet, I didn’t hit her! Oh, hi Gnome!”

    • MrHairyLives says:

      Woops. Got there a little too late for that one …ahem… :-/

    • MultiVaC says:

      I once knew a guy who double crossed Gnome Chompski. Gnome Chompski found out about it and beat him up so bad he ended up in a hospital on Guerro Street.

  25. Mephistoau says:

    My life is complete…..

  26. Owain_Glyndwr says:

    THERE IS A GOD!

    Seriously, this is objective proof.

    • Mr_Initials says:

      This also proves that god doesn’t exist because there is no way Gnome would let anyone be more badass than him. Does this mean that Gnome Chompski is god?

  27. DarkFenix says:

    Most awesome thing I’ve ever seen.

  28. Calabi says:

    That… was so beautifull!!

    I liked the part where the Gnome was awesome.

    Is the end of this video relevant?

  31. tanith says:

    Haha, I love the reference to “the room”! :D
    “YOU’RE TEARING ME APART!” (go and watch the nostalgia critic episode, it’s one of the best)

    Don’t care about the Duke but wish Gordon Freeman wasn’t missing.
    This trailer looks interesting, though.

  32. The Army of None says:

    Great Game, or Greatest Game?

  33. dethtoll says:

    I don’t see an Episode 3 in all that nonsense!

  34. manveruppd says:

    Words cannot convey how much I wish this was real! :)
