    So who else has paid up and started pre-loading?

    I just bought mine and am pre-loading currently. Hope this means the game will be released in the next month or less :D

    /me keeps fingers crossed.

    It is out on June 1st, so lots of waiting to do (while they actually finish it)

    Got Sin episodes to check out anyway, which I have started to do.
    Doesn't really get my heart racing, except one particular scene in a flashback at the start, but I will work through it.

    Sin is a game, released in an episodic fashion.

    Ep.1 is Aftermath. i.e. The next iteration of the Half Life 2 story.

    For ElectronicPunky... shipoopi is good, peter griffin sang about it on Family Guy :smoker:

    Fookin A right HL2 is da shizzle.


    I am playing it again. Hard setting this time around though, and with all high quality. Makes it like a whole different game. I am going to start the preload next week for the next installment.

    Trying to get through some areas with all the citadel is like a crowded HALO arena. But it makes it more intense.

    It's 17 bucks. A ps3 is like $600 plus tax.

    I played through it over the weekend while I was sick. I just did it in speed mode :D

    HL2 and Far Cry are 2 games I can't get enough of. HL2 is more linear but running through at super speed was AWESOME :D

    Waiting to see when Far Cry instincts is released. I wish everyone would adopt a content delivery system a la STEAM (with fewer bugs perhaps).

    Cut out the middle-man, reduce game prices.

    I still have a hard time forking over $50 for a game that might last a few weekends. I can't believe that EA games hasn't started something of the like, helps reduce piracy also.

    Mebey I could finish this weekend but convincing my wife to let me off for a few hours of gaming is hard enough, so mebey not.

    Anyone around here still play HALO online? Or is everyone back on CS:S and BF2?
