Based on my posting record, this has probably been talked about... But oh well, I don't like to search back pages and try to decipher cryptic thread titles.

Half Life 2 looks SWEET.

The trailer blew my mind away. I guess it's from E3. Find it here (http://www.fileplanet.com/files/120000/123983.shtml) (Beware: HUGE file. 587 MB, but worth every last 1 and 0.)

I hope the environment is as flexible as the trailer suggests... My jaw was literally hanging open during some parts. (The ONLY thing I was disappointed with was that when he points the camera at the large screens, there is no video feedback)

It will be one hell of a strain on the ol' computer :( I expect this comic (http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/?t=archives&date=2003-05-23) from Ctrl+Alt+Del (http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/index.php) to end up, for the most part, true.:indif:

Holy ****! You read Ctrl+Alt+Del too! I'm a really big fan of those comics.

As for Half Life 2: It looks sweet, but I think the developers are using a graphical method similar to Deus Ex 2 in which the phrase "Do more with less" comes into FULL effect. On PC Gamer, I read Half Life 2 could run smoothly on a low end computer and look about as good. Doom 3 on the other hand...that thing is just RAW processing power. You could have an experimental prototype super computer and you would still have slow down.

Hahaha I think Doom III maybe has better graphics than HL2, but HL2 has a gravity gun and plays in a city... Ppl like that better so they say HL2 wins... I don't think you can compare those two games, they both are so totally different and use graphics in a totally different way.

But yeah, I'm downloading the big trailer now, but I've seen the smaller quicktime movies and they rock!! I hope the gravity gun doesn't suffer from lack of ammo, that would be dissapointing, since it's the most promising weapon I've ever seen!!

I just saw the big trailer and... well... guh guh guh guh...


Oh and by the way Hertog, don't worry. The gravity gun has infinite ammo, as long as you have something big and heavy nearby to use it on. :p
