Half-Life 2 update:

Some thoughts from my recent playthrough of Half-Life 2 (still in progress):

— I hate fast zombies. More than headcrabs, manhacks, and antlions put together.

— I wish I had a gravity gun. Since they don’t exist (yet,) I’d settle for a laser-guided RPG. How about it, Santa?

— I know a few kids who would stay in line if I had some antlion pheropods. Mwa, ha, haa…

— BUDDHA is my friend.

— This is an absolutely amazing game. Still. The SOURCE engine continues to amaze me with its balance of realism and performance. The level design, art design, animation, sound design, scripting, and pretty much everything else combine to make this game the gold-standard which ALL adventure-FPS games should aspire to. And it still threatens to empty my bladder/bowels from time to time.

More later. Still have a few more levels to play through. Right now I’m having trouble figuring out the best places to put my sentry guns to keep the Combine from storming my cell block and pwning my arse…

    Have you tried any of the mods for half-life 2? Some of them are really good.

    I’ve played around with Empire 2.0 and Pirates, Vikings, and Knights 2. Both were pretty enjoyable, but my poor Sempron-powered lappy has a hard time running them without a LOT of dropped frames.

    Haven’t played any of the (MANY) single player mods yet, but I intend to some day… still need to quit sitting on my hands and just finish HL2, and maybe play through Episode 1. So easy to get distracted with little things like my job, wife, kids, lawn… you know how it goes.

    What I’d really love to play through is Portal. I played a 10-level demo, and I’d really like to see the rest. Maybe next time Valve puts it on sale. Ten bucks sounds about right. :mrgreen:

    Acidlion is the Antlion Worker from Half Life 2: Episode 2.
