Default Half-Life 2

Ok So last night I waited about Half and hour for the half life 2 demo to download and i installed it and at first last night it wasnt working but this morning i was messing with the settings i put the resolution up to 1024x768, as a result every thing got better becuz before ppl were all dark and crap and i also had to hit the f button and that helped to lol, so yea i beat the demo and i luv this game and i am going to buy thig game its hot lol i didnt think that my computer coudl run it, because of my sucky gpu...

It's an excellent game, definitely get it.

Plus, in England (don't kno about the US) the new 'Game of the Year' edition has the original half-life bundled in, but now using the source engine!

Plus you get Counter-strike source and half-life 2 deathmatch!

Isn't the demo a part of Ravenholm? That is not my favorite part of the game if it is ravenholm. So don't worry, the game is amazing, I have had it over a year and still play it.

Yeah lol for sure. I remembered as I walked down the corridor to Ravenholm those words that Alex says about no one going to Ravenholm and that it was all airlocked before. Now here I was walking straight into it. I had no idea what to expect.

Nah, it wasn't that scary, c'mon guys. I played it at 12 AM with my parents not at home with all the lights off and the volume turned up pretty loud (the revolver sounded like a bazooka , and the bazooka... well, I didn't have it yet ) and it was mildly scary. The part that got me was when those fast ones were introduced (hate those guys! ) and the elevator place, where you go down really, really slowly, and you see all of them running around... I was like, "No way, I can't fight all those dudes!"... But I did! I killed every single one with a flying radiator because I had long run out of ammo by that point.

Yeah, that part was quite scary, I thought they would rip me to shreds! But it turns out they don't do that much damage to you. I hate those poison headcrabs though, take you down to 1HP with one hit.

Haha, the poison headcrabs are rather annoying. But, you just heal yourself from them. No big deal, really. My least favorite enemy was those damn sandlions... Hated those things. But, then you became allies with them, and it was all cool. But, before that... Ugh!

Are you saying the sandlion boss was hard?! Haha, I don't think so. I just blasted it with grenades and my Rocket Launcher.
