Wooohoooo! Yes! Yes! Yes!
Finally, yesterday. I finished playing Half-Life 2! Woohooo!
It's the second game after Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare that I've managed to actually finish a game. I don't know why I didn't like the first Half-Life when it came out in 1998. Funny, only now then I realized how cool the game is. Maybe, I didn't understand it. Or maybe I didn't read the guide unlike now with Half-Life 2 game guide by Gamespot.com.
Anyway, now, I'm ready to continue playing Half-Life 2: Episode 1 and after that Episode 2. I wonder if there's going to be Episode 3, 4, 5 etc or just the ending of the saga in Half-Life 3?
At first, when I started playing Half-Life 2 on my Xbox, I keep having headache playing it. I don't know why. Maybe because of the puzzle type game and a brain twister. I din't 'get it' the first time playing it. It's unlike any other FPS (First person shooter) game out there like Halo or anything where you just shoot everything from one level to the other. Even my 9 and 10 year old nephews can finish it.
When, I showed them Half-Life 2 they don't like it because it's kind of slow and you'll have to think through things almost all the time. So, I told them it's kind of a relax game where you take your time to finish it. It's a game where you don't have to go gung-ho at everything.
At least one of my nephew is a little interested in playing it after he saw that I finish the game yesterday. I like for them to try and play the game. I think it can teach them some problem-solving skills. And, also it's good to start learning it at their young age. But, so far, they have actually help me solve some of the puzzles in the game. So, at least, they can think!
I think, I like the thinking game more after playing Half-Life 2. Once, a while though, I prefer just trashing,bashing, shooting everything up too of course lol!
This year, there's a lot of great new games coming up for the Xbox 360 that I just can't wait to play it. Like Gears of War 2, Army of Two, Condemned 2, Dark Sector some of which is actually coming out by April. I don't know how soon they're going to come to Singapore. I guess, I can start saving hehe.. oh yeah, already did!
Okay, then. That's all the update for today. I'm chatting and updating my blog at the same time so got to go.
Have a nice Sunday!
