Finally yesterday Half-Life 2 got released. After waiting about 20 minutes for Steam to unlock the files it eventually began loading up. Had a free voucher from my last graphics card hence using Steam to get it. Downside before I’d even started was it took an age to load, I was watching the initial load screen for another 10 minutes before I got going, but boy was it worth the wait! The graphics are out of this world, the introduction movie when you start is brilliant. Go get it now.
