    I find the price well worth it, at 4 times the resolution of an Xbox, with Anisotropic filtering, Antialise (Halo on PC can’t run with Antialise), Direct x9, Halo on PC looks far far better then on Xbox and Halo on the PC looks like shit compared to some other PC games! Not to mention the free games you can get with a PC thanks to pirated software downloading, considering all the games I have pirated it has more then made up for the price difference of the video card and extra ram!

    Have you guys fought the Tripod robot? I think they call it a Strider.

    Anyhow, there's a trilogy of books by Christopher John called the Tripods, where aliens conquer earth and rule it by riding around in giant tripods. They also control people's mind by sticking metal shit in your head.

    Anyhow, those tripods just reminded me of it.

    They ain't tripod, they're...quadpods and take a helluva lot of rockets to take down. And it ain't fun trying to take out 5 of them with no ammo, you have to sacrifice your men to steal their ammo.

    Ah, just passed the prison, you're about 2/3 of the way there. Now it get's hard for you Ghost

    Wow, just completed HL2, I have to say, it has one of the most gripping single player campaigns I know. That's why I played it through in two days, since I just got it Friday afternoon.

    Damn, that game is so much fun. Good work from the programmers.

    Doom2 was good, but not great, even disappointing. Was HL2 as great as you expected it to be?

    Half-life 2 was better than I expected. I feared that it might be a cheap seconds part that would always be overshadowed by the first game... this was definitely not the case. I think it was better than HL and it was worth buying.

    Yes, they are really using the physics engine for a good effect. Never had this in another game.

    This game is brilliant on so many levels. The cosmetics are amazing. The sounds are the best they can be and even the code...man, the code...they've turned code into an art form. I lvoe it and it's so much fun to mod with.

    Almost completed it for the third time on hard mode...will take me up to 4 times. I'm hooked
