Re: Half Life 2: Episode 2 preload :D

So yah, finished.

They say it's longer than Episode 1 but doesn't feel like it :(

I guess it's coz I was so uber on the last level and just dominated lol.

Much of the same of what we are used to. Graphics are improved, shadows are improved, textures are a mixed badge. Some sections look great, some look low quality but usually you are being chased around and running and/or driving so much, it doesn't matter.

The game-play requires more strategy this time around because you're not simply shooting mindless zombies, zombines or soldiers. The new mini-striders are a handful if you're the run and gun type.

Overall though, it definitely answered a few questions and furthered a few more. The ending was a real cliffhanger.

If you haven't played it yet, get it, play it, enjoy it :D

I am going to start again, with commentary mode on this time, during the weekend.

4/5 OSNN Stars.

The Orange Box package btw, 5/5 OSNN stars. Portal is a BLAST and there is no better FPS MP out there than Team Fortress 2.

my brother seems to be loving it, and some of the quotes are hilarious, especially the banter involving the AR3 and "radio operator" :)

Argh. I want to get the orange pack but it's a waste of money since I already have HL2 and EP1. But I want Portals, Team Fortress, and EP2. :(

Team Fortress 2 itself is worth the entire price :cool:

And you can GIVE away the HL2 and Ep1 keys to people who haven't played it. It's free for them.

You should look for someone to buy both of em off of you. If you have either one or both, you get to gift them to someone.

That's why you have the car dude. Drive over the bastids, have an extra kaplooey device in the back of the car for AFTER you run em over and you're done.

Yeah, I know. But them Hunters stick to the Striders like glue. Always slamming into the Strider's legs. It's fun running them over, though you have to hit them pretty much dead on for a clean kill.

I found I had plenty of time to run them over and then take out the striders - they also seemed to go down faster than previously in the game.

Yes the Striders went down with just one device each... the running over hunters was the best way to kill them that and the magnum ...

I just bought the orange box, anyone want a free copy of half-life 2? (not episode one)

Edit: No takers, went elsewhere.
