Default You guys think you can't wait to play HL2...

While you guys are all enjoying HL2, my unlocked copy will be sitting at my computer with no one to play it. I leave for bootcamp on November 1st and wont get out till December 17th. So if you guys think you have if rough waiting till November 16th, just think how I will feel on that date knowing I will have a full month before I can play or even see a computer again

A month without a computer? I don't think I could do it.

It's Doom 3 being discussed, but you get the idea. I feel for you buddy.
