I ordered Half Life 2 from Amazon on Saturday and it arrived this morning on my doormat. I installed it (eventually) and gave it a go.
I was awestruck at the beauty of the thing. Even on my Athlon XP 2200 with a Geforce 4 64MB graphics card machine it looked absolutely stunning. I’ve never seen graphics like it, ever. I’ve not got very far, though I have managed to get hold of the crowbar and hit things. The last thing I did was die under a train – this may take a while to get the hang of seeing as I don’t tend to play FPS games.
I don’t anticipate watching much TV for a while though, plus I may have to get some painkillers for my wrists, and not for the usual reason.
