I Finally Beat Half-Life 2!

18 07 2008

Want to see the best gun in the game? Then click the above picture to make it bigger! 🙂 So after slowly making progress through the game since Christmas, I finally beat the game. Since I picked up Orange Box, Episode 1 and 2 are soon to follow on the game beatin’ schedule. After playing through this game, I really must say it easily lives up to all the high ratings it received. Even today after playing beautiful games like Gears of War, this game still looks and plays great on any decent PC out there.

Let’s take a look back, shall we? This game was officially released on November 16, 2004. (Almost four years ago already!) Then the Xbox 360 came out in 2005 around the same time Half-Life 2 did. The important difference? HL2 was out on the PC looking great a whole year before the 360 came out. While I do own a Xbox 360, it’s always good to look back sometimes and see how much better the PC was and always will be. If you can afford the upgrades that is…





Quick Gaming News Roundup! Yeehaw!

Sing me A Song!

-Rock Band 2 Premium Drum Kit
-Rock Band 2 Gameplay Trailer
-Rock Band 2 Info

So I’ve got to admit, this looks cool. But one question, what the crap is the difference between this and Guitar Hero World Tour? (Yes I realize it has song creation. But with no vocals who cares?) Maybe if they worked together on one game rather than making two clones this would be even cooler than it already is. While the price tag is looking to be something like $180, with wireless drums it actually looks worth it this time around. So…uhh…for the one guy in the world that hasn’t played Rock Band, is there a solo campaign for the drums?

A Cheaper 360!

Yep, this is true. Saw it in the Best Buy ad today. You can now get the 20gb 360 for only $300. But seriously, has anyone not boughten one yet? 🙂

Portal 2

LINK. Awesome! While I can’t say this is my favorite game, I did enjoy playing the game quite a bit. It’s nice to see game developers take some risks and come out with something cool!
