I hope they DO longativity is what games lack now.. and ep2 didn't seem like a chore unlike other new games that try to strechout playtime.

valve timed this episodic shit right as luckily for them no big leaps in gaming engines have been made to make the source engine obsolete.

replaying them now except they keep crashing on me because Im having trouble with my video card drivers (no official driver support from nvidia to laptop cards, yay) and now after the last update they wont start at all

www.laptopvideo2go.com

latest nvidia drivers 'hacked' for laptops (modified INF's for laptops, nvidia "deletes" laptop support from their drivers for some reason). i've used them ever since i got mine a year ago.
you can thank me later

wtf theres an ep3 announced? maybe i'll get it once i actually finish ep 1 and 2. i picked up the orange box and i barely touched ep1. there have been far too many good pc games this year that i wanted to play first. my list of games i have yet to finish include cod4, bioshock, and the witcher. the fact that css and tf2 are taking up the majority of my pc game time doesnt help either.

Waiting for that fateful day of bannage, c'mon Kyle be a man and push the button you big fairy.
 
Despite my earlier fears I actually really enjoyed Episode Two. Valve's fit and finish is second to none and the atmosphere was pretty awe inspiring. On top of that I actually felt involved in the story, as opposed to being shunted from cut-scene to cut-scene (J-RPG makers could take a clue from this). I felt I got more than my money's worth with Orange Box and I'm very excited to see Episode 3.

Funny this thread comes around right now. I just finished a marathon of Half-Life. I started at the original, then played opposing force, then blue shift, then half-life 2, then ep1 and ep2. Just finished ep2 for the first time last night a few long nights, a weekend bender or two and then everything was done

Can't wait for ep3. god damn ep2's ending was distressing I want to know what the hell we get to do to those damn advisors though, there is some serious potential for some chaos there, since you know, you like cant move and shit

Also, is someone going to explain why they thought ep1 sucked? I didnt think it was the most awesome segment evar, but certainly not terrible.

I must say, I have always loved the Half-Life storylines. Perhaps one of the best worlds in games, though I have several other titles I want to play through yet.

How come people found the Strider battle at the end of Episode 2 so hard? I died once because I accidentally shot a rocket at the ground lol but other than that it wasn't too hard

Strider battle was a bit tricky if you didnt pick up on it fast IMO. Rather than fight the hunters, I stayed in the car and ran them down

I died a couple of times, none better than the time I rammed a hunter, jumped out of the car and went to grab one of the Magnussen Devices from the rack, only to have the Strider kick the car into me and kill me.

Well... keep in mind I was disappointed by HL2, considering what the original did for the genre. I expect a run-and-gun FPS to be on rails, but I shouldn't be conscious of it. The game felt like an awkward mashup of medieval horror and dystopian terrorism, both of which would make great new franchises. It's like they gave up halfway through and said "hey, let's just give the player a crowbar and throw some soldiers at him -- sequel!" The plywood surfing and turrets were neat ideas that grossly overstayed their welcome.

Ep1 was needless rehash. "Check this out -- you go through the Citadel to reach City 17." I wouldn't watch the A-Team do their last mission in reverse, and I love the A-Team. The puzzles and gotchas were even recycled FFS.

If you're the kind of person who finds Alyx's character contrived, wooden, and tedious, tough bananas; you spend most of the game listening to shit like "LOOK GORDON IT'S A DOOR."
