I don’t plan on playing this game at all… but thought I would like to share this piece of news I found..
Grabbed this from Half Life 2 Files
Hey HL2 Gamers!
Recently, one of the HL2Files.com members here, alerted me of a pirated warez version of Half-Life 2, apparently released via the Bittorent network. I immediately, forwarded this to Gabe Newell of VALVe Software. [The great man, we should all be thanking for Half-Life 2 ].
A couple of hours later, Gabe replied with the following:
We’re running a bit of an experiment. We’re keeping track of the accounts that do this and will be shutting them off.
So, as you can see, VALVe Software have released a test “warez” version aimed at catching people out. These people will have their accounts deleted and will be banned from Steam.
Therefore, I strongly suggest that you DO NOT participate in these illegal activities as it would only lead to your own harm.
VALVe Software spent over $40 Million to develop Half-Life 2. Show them you appreciate their work. Buy the game!
As the saying goes: BURN YOU WAREZ MONKEYS!
Spread the word!
So a week ago Halo 2 came out, I got it the same day… I did not wait in line, rather I went at 6pm CST to go get the game, was able to, very easy.
So we got it, later that night, I started to play it, as I wanted to play the game on co-op with my brother, so we did.
Thursday night, we beat the game, total of between 6 to 7 hours. We did not play constantly of course, as we have other things to do, school, work, etc.
So what did we think of it? We both were disappointed, and we were wishing that GTA:SA disc did not get damaged, as my brother accidently did, and have not had time to pick up another copy.
So what was wrong with the game? Not enough ammo, to point out first, a lot harder to hold your favorite gun in this game, if it is the SMG, Battle Rifle or maybe Sniper. Which sucks, big time.
You are not just Master Chief in this game, you are also the Elite/Convenent, which I did not enjoy much what so ever.
Legendary is like near impossible, as we found out, we are doing co-op on it, and why is it so near impossible? Because we do not have enough ammo, and the Elite soldiers seem to never EVER miss, which is cool but not 100% accuracy… ALL the time, but it is beatable, we have beat a few levels, and it will take time to beat it all on lengendary… the challenge is great just ammo sucks once again.
Many more things, but, oh well… GTA:SA is the choice to get in my opinion for this christmas if you are not able to get it yet, over Halo 2.
I’ve 60% complete with the game, what a great game.
Ignore all the problems with the game, such as graphic problems, random freezes, not being able to do some stuff because it will crash the game (like the club freezing problem when you dance) and such other stuff. or just stuff that should of been fixed like flying sucks…the controls/etc.
Put all that aside, and you have a great game here… soooo much stuff to do in the game, that you never could before.
You even have a great 2 player mode, where you can roam with whomever, great if you like to go around killing whomever/cops, getting lots of stars on you, etc. The problem with it though is it does not give you all the weapons you have and what not… such as the rocket (sucks, but you can still lock on helis easily and shoot them down, nice).
Ahh… and in a few days, Halo 2! So I will start playing that… and getting that beat, which I am at least trying to beat San Andreas now… and do all the other stuff to get 100% complete after Halo 2.
So what should you do? Go buy GTA:SA, and a PS2, if you do not have one
