Half-Life 2 has been getting my full attention ever since the game was unlocked at 12:07 am (Valve time) on the 16th. I played the game from the time I got off of work (around 7 am) until about 4:00 pm. I only took 6 screen shots and the only ones of note to show are these shots of Barney and Alyx:

One Two
Three Four
Five Six

A couple of things about this game. First off the graphics are amazing. I think it’s even more than just the graphics, it’s the environments and the way the story unfolds around you. You may have heard about this games physics in a preview or two. And it’s something that has to be seen, I can’t do it justice writing about it. More or less if you played and liked the first Half-Life this game will be a must have.

Multiplayer is handled by the Counter-Strike: Source, the juiced up version of CS. Personally I don’t like CS so it’s not an issue to me and I’m not big on the multiplayer part of the game. But some people would like to have just a plain old Half-Life 2 Death Match mode. And from what I hear it’s coming thanks to the mod community.

…you know, you should just give up playing World or Warcraft or whatever that game is….

I haven’t been on in a while (haven’t had much time). I’ve missed reading you and the rest of the gang. Of course, I have also forsaken contact with real live people in my free time to play Half Life 2 – so I really don’t have an excuse.

I’ve also been meaning to take some screens to put up on the site (since there isn’t really anything there now), but the game is so exciting, I pretty much forget to take cool ones until it’s too late. Maybe I’ll go back in and revisit some things just for the screens.

Well, it’s time to go to bed, thought I would say hi…

Booo!!! Boo!!!

I lived on CS back in 99 and 00, and would die to have a fast connection again to play it online. Right now I have to settle for the CS Condition Zero, which allows you to have 30+bots, but all you get to face are bots.

They’re pretty good though if you ask me.

Come down to Texas and I’ll let you use the real thing. Much more exciting than a mere game if you ask me! “
