Oh my god! You are so happy in that photo it makes me happy for you. :)

007 373 5963 is forever etched in my brain from childhood. It took me forever to beat that damn game and I know the thrill of that hard earned victory. I remember when I beat Tyson long ago and I wanted to call every kid in the neighborhood. :lol:

:lol: Welcome Smoomeister. I think you'll fit in fine here.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN

Half Life 2: Episode 2 PC

Half Life 2 is an excellent game. Episode 1 is merely okay. Episode 2 though, is absolutely masterful. The base game doesn't make me foam at the mouth for a new installment but man, playing Episode 2 again relit that fervor and I want nothing more than for Valve to complete the series now. The music, the style, the writing and pacing. It's all so well done in this release. And what a cliff hanger to end on! Seriously powerful stuff. Not to mention that right before that they tease the answers you're looking for only to take them away.

It's going on 8 years and I don't think Valve is actually interested in releasing the next installment at this point. It's still a great game and while I wont lose any sleep over it I cross my fingers for the day this adventure concludes.

I've been to Valve. The fact that anything gets released is a miracle.

Everything I've read about how that company (isn't) structured, it doesn't surprise me to hear that.

I too forgot how insanely cringe inducing the cliffhanger was. But yeah, then I laughed. 8 years.

Not that they need to actually produce anything anymore. They can just contract a few guys for the Steam datacenter and sit back and rake in money.

Valve moved from the business of making games to making money. :P

Well, arguably (or not so arguably) they've brought us so much more gaming opportunities and hours of fun through their new business model than they ever would have through HL3 alone.

Thanks very much, guys!

I share those sentiments about Valve. I am more than ready for more Half-Life excellence.
