Portal and Half-Life 2 Episode 2 out!

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Finally, the long wait for Half-Life 2 Episode 2 is over. The game was unlocked on Steam on 10th of October 2007 and along came another game called Portal.

Both were great games. At first I thought that I wouldn’t really like Portal as it was more of a puzzle game, but as it has something to do with Half-Life I thought I’d give it a go and I was inpressed with the game play. I’ll try not to spoil it but it becomes more than a puzzle game near the end. It’s great. I really liked what the computer voice that spoke to you when playing was saying :) .

Episode 2… wow… that was an ending (just for this episode, not the HL2 game) that I wasn’t prepared for! In Episode 2 you get a new car which gets several upgrades during the game and there is a new enemy (which kind of annoyed me at times! I replayed the game with the commentary and found out an easier way to kill them).

All in all, great games. I haven’t posted on my blog for a long time so I thought I’d post about these two games.
