    Cool...just like what they have in Prey except the player can create them.

    Reminds me, I'll have to go out and pick up Episode One since I haven't played it yet.

    Let me know how it is, Gregg. I was eyeing it while out shopping yesterday.

    Yeah... theres only one reason I havent either, yet.

    One. To install and play HL2 I have to let Steam update it, and on a 26.4kbps connection, that takes, I shit you NOT, over 24 hours.

    Also, I will wait until all the installements are out and bundled, and play them then.

    My gaming downer for today is the news that I have to wait until at least October for Neverwinter Nights 2.

    Ya, I hate that Steam thing and I can only image how bad it is on dialup. I loved HL2 when it came out, and to be honest, didn't even know that the expansion (episode 1) had even come out until I picked up Prey last week.

    Whats Prey going for... and is it really worth it?

    I LOVED HL2 and FEAR.

    I need to leave Oblivion behind. Im starting to get... weird.

    FEAR hands down.

    HL ep1 is SHORT. FEAR isnt super long, but its about 5 times as long as what folks are saying about ep1.

    It looks gorgeous. The AI aint bad.

    Definitely play it the first time at the hardest difficulty.

    Its fun as hell with some downright whacky moments.

    4/5 for me. GREAT SHOOTER.

    Portal 2 was released today, and is already receiving rave reviews.

    Oooo...have to pick that up. It will be weird playing on a Mac now since all other version of Half Life I played on PC. Should be interesting to see which I like better.

    Have talked to a couple of folks who snagged it yesterday. Keep a bottle of Advil handy. :haha:
