In honor of Gordon Freeman getting 55.8% of the vote for that Gamespot Awesome Hero of Coolness (or whatever) thing, every Half-Life game is 55.8% off at the Steam Store.

Anyone who doesn't have these games needs them. Hl2 for under $10, HL1 for under $5...sale ends today, fools!

Thanks for the heads-up. The Steam store works quite nicely on a Mac using Crossover Games, and I'd already purchased HL1 (Source edition) a while back, still need to get around to completing the last areas in it. When I get around to finishing that, I planned to buy HL2 -- of which I've played through different parts but never owned myself -- but now I'll go ahead and buy HL2 at the cheaper price, hopefully coercing me to go ahead and finish up HL1 soon so that I can start playing it.

This should also remind me that I never finished that great user-created map pack for Portal I started a while back... time to boot up Steam again tonight for the first time in far too long.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

I'm currently debating whether or not it's worth grabbing HL1 Source for $5. I already have the original HL, and as far as I can tell it's just a graphical upgrade...

...not sure. Buying the upgrade would encourage me to play through it again, so I guess that's good...hmm. Still got a few hours to decide.

I never played much of the original pre-Source Half Life, so I'm not entirely certain what all has changed, but I believe it's both the graphics and the improved physics of the Source engine (no gravity gun, but things behaving much more realistically, particularly in explosions, etc). Probably worth it for $5, but then again, it's a long game to play through once more if you've already experienced the whole thing.

I already got The Orange Box for my 360, and all the games are great. I wanna go back and play Half-Life 1, I enjoyed playing the demo.

Leap before you think!
