Dunno how far I am through portal... puzzle 13 or something... but does it actually explain how it 'fits' into the HL universe?

Portal is awesome and all... it just seems somewhat random

I previousley didn't have any of the games that came with my orange box purchase yesterday, so i have started playing HL2 first and im gonna finish them all in sequence
BTW even though HL2 isn't a brand new game, im enjoying every minute of it

TF2 is frikkin awesome as we all know and that is taking up a lot of my gaming time atm too.

Still not played Portal but will have a bash later

Taking my second bio break from HLep2. This game is crazy. The fights are fun. And so far I have been playing for 6+ hours and no sign of it ending anytime soon. As soon as I beat it I will post ALLOT of screenshots I been taking them all throughout the game.

The music has got to be the best. Im going to find the sound track later I am sure its out there somewhere.

Some parts that made me jump in this game too. Really intense moments.

I have only seen the start of Ep2 when Alyx takes you out of the train. Is it me, or are the Alyx textures in Ep2 worse than Cinematic Mod for Half Life 2 and Ep1?. No it's not me, it's real. I hope the Cinematic Mod guys make a mod for Ep2 soon

I have been playing original Half Life 2 and Ep1 with the mod and I can't stand how blurrry does Alyx look in Ep2

Anyway the game is great so I will play it again when new Cinematic Mod is released

Man, I really wanna get back home to play Portal. I played for 2 hours straight this morning and got "past # 19" When going through it though, I was a little disappointed since I got through most of it so fast! The puzzles were challenging but I thought there would be around 30-50 puzzles to go through. Oh well. I'll finish Portal this afternoon and start Episode 2 last tonight. Midterms are teh suck.

DONT POST SPOILERS!!!!

This game is much more fun and ep1. When you have to run from the antlion lord my butt cheeks were clinched. I was almost flustered at one point. He was right behind me and I was so close to the hole. OMG It drove me nuts.


yeah it sounds like gay sech but u will know what I am talkin about when you get to that level. LOL It is very stressful.


I had very low expectations for this game. I am very much happy with it so far.
