Out of the Blue

Spoiler alert! Today is the 25th anniversary of Half-Life, Valve's original first-person shooter. We'll call this the game's lead-210 anniversary, since its half-life is 22.3 years according to Wikipedia and that's as close as we can find to an isotope with a 25-year half-life. The celebration of the occasion is fully underway, including Friday's announcement that the game has received a big update, and is currently free-to-keep on Steam. So get moving! They're waiting for you Gordon. In the test... chamber.

Obituary: Suzanne Shepherd Dead- ‘Goodfellas’ And ‘Sopranos’ Actress Was 89.

The first Half-Life is still one of my absolute favorite game. How Valve told the story in game was great. Then the shocking moment when I found out about the warring factions (military vs Xen vs scientists/guards)... Wow. One of the big Wow moments in gaming I had. Thx to all the people that worked on that game, you gave me a great memory for the rest of my life.
