Game on

Well it didn't go perfectly smooth, installing the Via 4in1 drivers with SP2 trashed the first install. On the second install I didn't bother with them. I consider these two setups to be learning experiences. I may actually pave the box and re-install one more time to get things the way I want. But I did manage to get HL2 installed and booted up. Oh man!! I was actually able to play smoothly with high quality textures etc at 1600x1200! Unbelievable! After playing console games at 640x480 for so long I had forgotten what I was missing. The detail in this game is simply amazing.

Now you're just rubbing our faces in it. Bollocks to you I say, I'm going back to Half-Life 1 on me trusty old Dreamcast.

Well sniffy, I'm only rubbing it in for your benefit as I know you already have the hardware and are probably the biggest gamer I know.

Flem told me that HL2 is only single player! What, they couldn't figure out how to open a socket after 6 years?!? LAME!

Right, so, anyways, I just bought a copy of HL2. I am weak.

Well you didn't build that super computer for nothing.
