Morning Discussion

The first part of Valve's Left 4 Dead comic 'The Sacrifice' has arrived, if you hadn't noticed yet. Featuring art by Powers picture-maker Michael Avon Oeming, The Sacrifice is so far a series of flashbacks explaining character backstory and leading into the Left 4 Dead 2 DLC The Passing. It's interesting to see as a straight scripted narrative with full conversations and explanations is so very different to the game's storytelling method.

I ran out of time so I can't say what I was thinking right now, but I was probably just looking for an excuse to say "cranial blancmange" anyway. Delicious!
