The first time I heard about fanbrellas was a short while ago, and I guess they make sense in very humid and wet climates. It didn’t take Thanko long to announce their version of the Fanbrella. Even though it’s cheaper, it actually looks somewhat sturdier than the one we mentioned before.

Half-Life 2 Escape From City 17

I don’t know what to think of this, except that the preview of the next episodes looks good. Otherwise, it was lukewarm.
