Out of the Blue

As of yesterday I still hadn't made up my mind how I was going to pick up Half-Life 2. Then I stopped in at Mr. Badwrench, the semi-competent service department at my local dealership to inquire about a tune-up and they fit me in today, so my soon-to-be temporarily pedestrian self went home and signed on for the Steam dealie. Through sheer force of will I am avoiding even checking out the game that sits unlocked on my game machine at this point for fear of missing the morning update due to some G-man conspiracy.

tron, I know you were kidding and everything

yes, yes i was.... or.... was i?

even though you had no way to know that, it still really hurt

i suggest you go to a support group where you and your fellow dummy-heads can find solace in your shared stupidness. you might want to bring cupcakes, and some Coke to dunk them in. and hey, you may be stupid, and you may be a dummy-head, but at least you're big - so you got that goin' for ya.

Not to mention, HL2 freakin' RAWKS man! I mean it totally freakin' RAWKS

yes, indeed it does! (sooooo much better than it's somewhat overrated predecessor). the intro is the coolest i have seen in a long time. i guess you don't need cinematics or cut-scenes to stay cutting-edge. i got a few hours in today, and reached a point where i'm very lost in the recesses of some building and i don't know how to get out... yet.

i hope that you, and everyone else, is having a blast playing this game... we don't see this kind of quality very often, so lets appreciate it while it's here, and still brand new!!!

wtg Gabe and Valve!! you have redeemed yourselves after the last 13 months of doubt and confusion... here's a great big BOOOYAHHHH!! for y'all.
