I just got a private message over Steam from Valve and they told me to tell you they don't like you and are trying to spite you.

That's pretty much what Joan Rivers told me about her continued existence

Just one thing I've always wanted to say about Half-Life 'n' stuff...

Sometimes I wish you could hear what Gordon (being a scientist and all) has to say about all the shit that happens to him.  Like for instance, he most definitely would've gone apeshit over the gravity gun.  I imagine he'd say something along the lines of "blah blah blah particles blah grand unified theory blah electroweak gravity blah blah convert energy blah directed gravitational waves blah blah oh my God I just came!"

You've got a long time to wait, I'd wager.

If you haven't already, pick up Minerva: Metastasis.  (For the unfamiliar, it's a fantastic, free Half-Life 2 mod created by a guy who has since gotten a job at Valve.)  And there's always Portal, which is basically Half-Life Gaiden. 

I like to start the series back at the beginning and play through it, all expansions included.  It takes a long time and by the time it's over the urge for more Half-Life is slackened somewhat.

I thought Ep 1 had the best companion AI I've ever dealt with.  None of that "I can't finish this level without my friend Superfly" crap.

I pretty upset last year waiting on Episode 2 while Sam and Max got episodes coming out every month.  This year, I won't even care.  If and when it finally comes out, great and I'll pick it up.  I just hope they don't hold it back for a port to the 360 or something.

Well hopefully it's more open like the very end of Episode 2. It was quite fun racing around to take out enemies. At the moment the whole Valve team is working on Left4Dead then I'm sure they'll be spending a lot more time on Episode 3. I've got Day of Defeat: Source  to hold me over until then, Left4Dead looks pretty sweet as well. Zombies... everywhere... and they sprint. It's gonna be intense.

Hopefully, they'll be able to shed some light on who (or, more likely, what) the G-Man is and what his intentions are.  They've done a good job of keeping me in the dark so far.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that he sounds a lot like Torgo?
