Half Life is still Great

I like many people are looking forward to Half Life 2, so I thought I'd refresh my memory of the events in the original, I know its a simple story but just incase they have some references to minor events in the first one I decided to blast though it again.

Of course the graphics are a little outdated, but surprisingly not by too much for a 6 year old game, especially for the soldiers, the gameplay is fun and the AI is better than anything recent (cough* black hawk down *cough).

Its really fun to blast though and got me even more looking forward to the sequal



Anyone else still play the original?

I actually played through the original about a month ago myself. was about the fourth time through (on hard difficulty all but first try). Even when I have some vague memory of what happens and where to go the game retains much of its original enjoyment. Thats saying a lot I think.

I just got Half Life and played for the first time about 3 months ago. Wow, what a great FPS. In fact, it's the only one I've played in recent years that I've enjoyed (unless you count Deus Ex).

Saw this earlier, should be good to know...

Big news from the world of VALVe; Gabe Newell has spilled the beans to all us gamers on how we are going to acquire the highly anticipated sequel to Half-Life. Over at Planet Half-Life a confirmed Gabe Newell e-mail was posted revealing Half-Life 2's different pricing plans and purchasing methods. For those of you concerned about the pay to play rumor, fear not! You can purchase the game normally as a boxed unit from a retailer or through Steam with a one time payment. This will allow you to enjoy the mods, multiplayer, and of course single-player content of Half-Life 2. However there is a catch; when new content is released by VALVe, such as expansion packs, Team Fortress 2 or Counter-Strike 2, you will have to pay separately for those games.

Gabe Newell also went on to talk about the Steam subscription service which does allow you to receive new content as soon as it's released with no additional charge. So if you purchase Half-Life 2 as a game subscription via Steam there will be a monthly charge, most likely around $9.95/month, but you will get free access to any additional content such as the afore mentioned games.

Another thing to note for all you gamers out there stuck in the dark ages is you can purchase a cheap single-player only copy of Half-Life 2 from a retail store which has no mod or multiplayer support. And if that doesn't do it for you there will be a collector's edition package with "cool bonus stuff for people who like cool bonus stuff."
I'm thinking collectors edition myself. I've been around for many 'large' game releases, and though I've always wanted one, I've never actually shelled out the extra cash for a CE. This time might be different.

Steam is very interesting but, not having the material... the cds, the manual, the box even, just doesn't sound right to me.

Wait, if I buy Half Life 2 at a store and I just get the standard box version I get no multiplayer support?

Or do I just not get the Mod-Design tools?

Half life is the best FPS ever. Even today people are still making mods for it. Look at the Recent Natural Selection mod.

There are three versions to be had from stores;

Base single player only
Standard (with multiplayer/modsupport)
Collectors Edition

I just downloaded Natural Selection myself the other day, but I'm having trouble getting into it. I need to give it more time I suppose.

I just played it again a few months ago. It rocks. Pellaz is right about DeusEx.

One of the many things I like about HL is that the MOD list seems endless.
My favorite is either PVk or rocket crowbar 1/2.
