Could it be finally here? Could it? I find this hard to believe.

As I write this, it is 5:16 AM in the morning of Tuesday the 16th. I just woke up, and boated up Steam, only for it to give me that ever beautiful dialogue "Unlocking game files...". I waited, and waited. I took a shower, came back, and waited, and now its done.

Half-Life 2...is here...

I don't know what to think. My hand is shaky. My heart is pumping. I've got no bloody clue why I'm posting on this bloody thing instead of playing, but I think I must calm down for a bit first. It's Half-Life 2 man. Half-Life 2. The game that was supposed to be here last year. The game that's meant to kick-start the revolution.

Half-Life 2.

I must be off now. I have 3 hours to play before I have class, after which I shall immediately return and play some more (food? what's that?) until I collapse to sleep. It shall be glorious...

Let's kick some Combine ass!

There there, DJ, my old computer can't play Counterstrike. Really.

64MB RAM, Pentium 2, 8 gig HDD...yeah. I press the power button, it turns over like a bad car engine. Takes a few times, but it turns on eventually. :P

Feel better?

Some boring screens. Just a note I had anti-aliasing turned off...I'm na try turning it on and see how much of a hit the frame rate takes. I'll post some more exciting stuff later...I hope ;)

*cries* Do you know how long I have been pining for that game?!?!?!?!?! I almost want to say I hate you Khuff... But I don't. In fact I've decided I'll be your new best friend so you'll let me borrow it. :-D Right? Sounds good. Just give me a heads up when you're ready to give it to me.

Apparently Delphi's friend has an X-Box that likes to download...that is, it does the opposite of Uploading, tries to go back to the very beginning of the process, and dies. Boy, I wish she were still around. XP





*sigh* Anyway...as I told Khuff on IM, dat chica isn't that good looking.


And she needs more butt.

I actually like that she's not exactly hot stuff. She seems more real that way.

...and yes. This certainly makes me feel better about my old relic. Not to mention leave it to the X-Box to crash itself without a game. :prime:

i'll probably talk a friend into lending me his HL2 discs sometime before christmas, but at the moment i'm having way, way too much fun on metroid prime 2. i should get the original HL stuff from him while i'm at it, i'm afraid i missed that game, like so many others.

I dont think you can borrow, as you need to authenticate from the Steam servers before you can play. If he trusts you he can give you his steam username/password ;)

Eh...I doubt it was unlocking when you were playing CS man. Unencrypting files takes vast amounts of CPU power, so does CS, and since you decided to start Source, I'm sure the unlocking procedure was paused ;).

Half Life 2 is amazing. The storyline is a bit confusing, but its pretty cool. And Barney owes you a beer....

No, that's not the best part. I just thought it was funny.

I'm racing around in an air boat. The problem is, I'm trying to balance Metroid Prime 2, Half Life 2, and my final year of high school out.

Metroid Prime 2 is very awesome, by the way. Extremely difficult, but wild and exciting.
