Default Half-Life 2: Orange Box

Yes, it did indeed come out today. I haven't been able to play it very much yet, but what I've seen so far as quite impressive.

First off, HL2 looks great [I'm talking about the original game, not the episodes]. The lighting is bumped up from the PC release, there's a lot more bump-mapping, and the reflections in the water seem to be a lot more realistic as well. Other than that, pure HL2 action all the wall.

Then there's Portal. Ah, yes, Portal. It's crazy fun. CRAZY. FUN. Just the shere amount of crazily awesome things you can do with the portal gun make this one of the coolest games in years. It might even be worth $60 on its own, but, of course, you don't have to buy it for $60 on its own.

And another long, long delayed title finally gets released... (TF2, of course)

I've been immersed in the Team Fortress 2 beta for a little over a week now and it's going to be tough to pull myself away to enjoy the other goodies in this package. I already own HL2 and Ep1, I've been waiting months for Ep2, and Portal I just recently looked into and it looks intriguing.

So, my 2 cents is that TF2 is the BEE'S KNEES and I'll get back to you on the rest.

Man, I'm literally blown away by how amazingly awesome and innovative and FUN that Portal is. One of the best games I've played all year.

Yeah I delved into Portal a bit. Fun, but very short lived. Fortunately, I can see the mod community making some wicked challenges.

Episode 2 is so far so good, though I've yet to scratch the surface.

Team Fortress 2 is still the bee's knees, and worth the price of the Box alone.

Yeah, Portal is extremely short, but it makes great use of that time.

Portal is interesting but my interests are more than just modded challenges. I'm talking entire single player adventures with both gravity gun and portal gun tossed in there, and multiplayer use of that gun too.

Man, TF2 is such an awesome game. Pure, adrenaline-pumping action that never stops.

I've been owning noobs left and right with my gun turrets and sneaky spy-action. Nothing says "PWNZORD" quite like a knife in the back from someone that looks like an engineer from your own team.

Well I finished Portal today and I have to say the second half of the game is not at all what I expected, though I loved it.

Now to get back to Episode 2, though it's so hard when Team Fortress 2 is mere inches away on my Steam games list...

You playing on PC or 360, GR? If it's PC, then we must pwn together!

I take it you like the Spy then. I'm not big with the support classes, though I can hold my own as an Engineer if we need another turret. Mainly, I'm an offense player. Pyro and Soldier are my staples, and Scouts? Sign me up. Especially on 2Fort. I love bounding across the bridge roof to the other teams balcony and owning all their Snipers with my bat .

Although, I've been playing a lot of Demoman lately and I'm starting to really get a feel for the class.

You guys?

Who touched my gun?!

Portal is coo, and apparently it's set in the Half-Life storyline. Also the computer is hilarious. Even SOME of the computer is hilarious! "What's that? Did that thing move? There are numbers on that. Ooh what's that? Who are you? Do you smell something burning?"

In conclusion, Miyamoto needs to play this game so Link can get a portal making device in the next Zelda game. Just the portal gun ALONE is awesome, but try combining it with, say, a BOW, or BOMBS, or a HOOKSHOT.

I haven't touched Episode 2 because I haven't touched Episode 1 because I never finished... what is it, Episode 0? Those guys named their chapters kinda weird...

It is also weird to see that there are achievements in the game and notes that friends just came online. Great though. I do sorta wish I could turn off Steam messages while playing my games though. I can do that in XBox Live, and do, because it sorta messes with the "mood" of various single player games to have those little messages with their sounds appear during dramatic scenes.

I've probably spent half of my time with the game so far as an engineer. I racked up nine kills in on one life! I also racked up ten killed with one turret. Good times, man, good times.

Generally, though, I switch around a lot depending on what's going on in the game.

Oh, me too. I rarely spend more than 4 or 5 lives as one class before i switch to try something new, and though I love the Pyro, if there are 4 Pyros already on the team, I won't be a Pyro .

I can't seem to time that Soldier's Rocket Jump though...

In case you were interested...my stats. As of now that is. Give it a week and they'll probably be way off .

Man, I just pulled down three captures in one round with a scout! Those idiots were doing absolutely nothing to defend their base, so I just ran right in, THREE TIMES!, and swiped their intelligence and then rushed back to my base. I was literally flying.



The top one is 9 kills and about an hour of playtime.

Don't you just hate it when you don't have a proper challenge?

No, it was pretty fun actually. It's not my fault if those guys are so dumb that they can't even put up a viable defense between me and ultimate glory.

I mean it's like in Starcraft. I tend to lose pretty much every match, but those times I win it isn't because I suddenly got better, it's just the other guy is even worse than me. I get no satisfaction from that. I rather get satisfaction from slowly increasing the amount of effort the good players have to put in to defeat me.

Hey if that's all you need I've got this AI bot that just sort of stands there. In fact you can play without an opponent in this game.
