This is probably going to be horribly short compared to the rest of the greetings, but oh well. I'm Issac!
I had my own little meet the reader thing on the tumblr (The-CryptKeeper), and I'm too lazy to go find it any put that picture here. (Not that is was really anything important or special but I'm just rambling now.)
I'm a big fan of Good Omens! And I'd love to talk to the lot of you! I'm into things including, Doctor Who, Hetalia, Warehouse 13, Supernatural, Assassin's Creed, TF2, Astronomy, Drawing, Theology, History and Roleplaying!
Assassin's Creed for the win! B) Which one is your favorite game? Or are you like me and just want them all?
-OHHH That's a hard one. I actually love all the classes of TF2. I play the Engineer, Medic or the Soldier the best though. The Medic and Pyro absolutely kill me in their Meet the -- Videos. I /really/ love TF2's plot. What about you?

Totally, dude! I love how Valve keeps coming out with the crazy stories. Have you seen their latest update? The Blood Brothers comic?
As for me, I actually haven't been playing for a while, but I usually play Pyro, Heavy, Medic, and sometimes Engineer. I really love the Meet The Videos for Spy and Sniper, too, but too bad I suck at playing them. XD I think Pyro is my favorite Meet The..., though. I had a feeling he wasn't seeing the world quite like the others. Once we were in fantasy-innocent-candy-land, I was dying!
Valve is the best! They really are. I always have people saying 'There's no plot, it's not interesting! It's just a PVP game!' but oh no, oh no no no that game is brilliant. Just in it's art and concept it is, then all all the crazy stories and it gets 10 times better. -YESS! I didn't get to read in detail but I was laughing about the pregnancy machine.
I haven't played in awhile either, I tried to get on to the get the Pyro items but I got lazy and didn't. I play with a touch pad so Engineer was the easiest for me to stick to really. The Spy.. ohhh the Spyyy. I love the spy! But I am so bad at it. I tried to improve as the spy but I just ended up sucking. I think the only time I ever played Sniper was on the Melee maps and it was with a group of friends to go against a bunch of bots for the fun of it.
Meet the Pyro is just beautiful. I was happy and singing along and my friend was horribly disturbed. I think the fans expected something..you know, about the Pyro's identity and then we got this beautiful video. Save the best for last!

Yes to everything!
Valve is one of my top favorite gaming companies and I wouldn't mind working there one day if I get the chance.
The art style is just gorgeous! It's simplistic, colorful, sharp, and their animation software for lip-syncing for their videos is sublime. I could gush on and on about it and their other games (I also like Half Life and a HUGE Portal fan).
And I loved the Pyro's song! I love that song so much, because it's so corny and it's wonderful! XD
I'm actually really happy that they didn't reveal the Pyro's identity. Valve writers know how to write and it's best to keep the Pyro a mystery. Once you reveal the truth, you lose such a great impact because fans might have expected something else and what not. I hope he's never "unmasked." Though, I will say that I wouldn't mind if Pyro turned out to be a woman. XD
Also, I was able to get a few back stab achievements with the Spy, but I'm so terrible at him, I don't bother nowadays. Oh, well. I'll enjoy being an Engineer screaming and running towards his dying sentry: HOLD ON! DADDY'S COMING!
I hope that you get that chance one day to work with them! I've never been able to play Half Life yet, but I loovee the portal games. (Even if they give you headaches for days on end.)
It is! It really is. I've always loved the artist they based their art off of, so to see a gaming company do that is wonderful. The things they did to pull it all together really amazed me and I can't wait to see what they do with it next.
Do you Believe in Magic was one of the biggest songs in my childhood so hearing to for Meet the Pyro floored me. The phrase of 'Fighting babies' will never be the same.
Oh really? Jesus I can't get any achievements with the Spy. Though I did get one from the Sniper once! I was in a call with my friends when we did the melee maps and one of them was a spy on the other team. And I was just shooting arrows out of the castle door and I got an achievement called 'Shoot the Breeze' that was for killing a spy while they were inviable. All I heard on the other side of the call was 'DAMMIT HOW IN THE HELL DID THEY GET ME.'

Oh, man, I'm not the best puzzle-solver, but Portal is where I feel at home. (Except some of the maps that other people make for the Infinite Testing Initiative really boggles my mind and where I have the most trouble.) During co-op, I'm the person that's all: Okay, hold up, guys, I got dis.
But puzzles aside, I'm forever in love with the story of Portal (1 & 2). And one of my favorite things is that Aperture Science is in the same universe as Black Mesa (Half Life) as competing science companies that both screwed themselves over. If you don't get a chance to play the games, you can always read up on it or watch walkthroughs if you're interested. Both games have great stories and characters.
Goodness, you lucky shot, you! I don't think I have any achievements with Sniper and was just lucky with Spy. XD
Engie is such a good daddy to his sentry children.
Portal 2 really shows Valves humor I must say! They're quite...well it's Cave Johnson and Wheatly. What can you do? I can't say how good I am with co-op! I've played a few rounds with my friend but we were basically just trying to kill each other each time with it. Though I also watched a walk through on Co-op so that's probably why we spent so much time seeing how we could kill one another.
Oh me too! I love that they did that. There is another game that I know they have mentions of and some of the messages are really creepy.. But I can't recall for the life of me which game it really is!
I think I'll have to. I know in Amnesia I'd joke around about beating the monsters with a crow bar because I had some friends who play Half Life.
We're both extremely lucky it seems with our shots!
-He is, he is. Though at least till the spy comes along and blows it all up.
Also you mentioned on that other persons hello introducing thingy that you do roleplay as well! Do you have a skype? Because I'd pick you up on your offer seeing as you do have a craving to rp as Aziraphale and I have been craving just about any Good Omens rp.
